Introducing Someday Dream

Belated introduction... Here is my new mare. She is in foal to Montserrat by frozen semen... only 1 cycle, inseminated 2 days after I bought her. Super timing. My understanding is that she had 4 foals all by TB stallions.

She has very pretty conformation, very sweet, and she offers incredible hock actions. Some knee actions, but not as free as I like in the elbows, but hopefully Monti can add some to the baby. I'd love to get another mare like her, and I'm still looking...

Yippee! Mufasa awarded First Premium and declared a stallion and FEI prospect by GOV judges

Congratulations to Gateway Farm for breeding this spectacular colt by Montserrat out of their homebred Rotspon mare. He received premium and was the top scoring colt at his inspection. Check out their website for more details:

We are extra excited about this foal because he is the result from one dose of frozen semen imported from Germany before Monti came to California.

Here is the direct quote from Mufasa's breeder Liz Jenner:

"Mufasa is turning out to be quite the boy!! You will be very proud of Monty’s baby!! I believe Pam is putting together some pictures and video clips to send to you so you can see how nice Mufasa is turning out. They just raved about him at his inspection and thanked me for bringing such a nice colt for everyone to see!"

I can't wait to see his glamour shots and video from Pam, who's Gateway's business manager/photographer.
