After producing a fabulous *Gun Smoke filly for the Kilcreases, Foothills River Queen will also be coming home also in foal, having been bred back to the dressage star Cashel's Rock of Ages. We are very excited about this 2005 arrival as well!

Congratulations to Jim and Nancy Kilcrease (FL) who are now the proud owners of a dark dun filly (going gray), Elderglen's Miss Kitty, out of Foothills River Queen on 4/14/04. Nancy said that the filly is enormous and was running circles around Queen within the hour.


Queen is currently leased to Jim and Nancy Kilcrease (FL) and has been bred to *Gun Smoke for a 2004 foal!

Queen is doing great. I sent some pictues. She seems happy doing dressage. She's so sweet! Hope her baby is just as kind as she is. Nancy K. (11/0)
