Pheobe's produce:

2004 Wildwood Hearne Top Gun dun colt by *Gun Smoke, owned by Jim & Nancy Kilcrease, FL

2003 Foothills Smokey Bay bay filly by *Gun Smoke, owned by Beury Stout, WV
Last night, Charlie and I returned home from the ACPS Region 3 show in Middleburg, VA. While we were gone, we boarded Phoebe (Ballywhim Candace) at the vet's, since she was due to foal the previous week. When Charlie went to the vet to pick her up this morning, he was greated with the good news that Pheobe had foaled this morning! What terrific good fortune we have had with fillies this year and this was no exception. We now have our 2nd ever bay purebred filly (both by *Gun Smoke); she has long legs, one white hoof with a small coronet and just the tinyest star. It will be a very difficult decision to see which of these I will keep, since I don't think we have room to keep all 3 of this year's fillies (but I sure would like to)!!! Pheobe and filly are both home now, resting comfortably after the newborn's first trailer ride. Keep watching for photos... (7/03)

A warm welcome to Ballywhim Candace (6/02)
So here we were with this fabulous new stallion, *Gun Smoke, and no mares of our own to breed to him. Well, we now have a wonderful mate for him, Ballywhim Candace! She is a very sweet, attractive mare who has been inspected and approved by the ACPS She is just the right size and build and has a lovely refined head. *Gun Smoke will compliment her well with his tremendous substance (and his wonderful dun color) and together they should produce an extra-nice Connemara that is both attractive and athletic. Ballywhim Candace (M1767 XXXVI) is a 14.1 hand, 9 year old bay by Greystone Dallen McMor (Greystone McErrill x Hideaway's Smitheranne), out of Bantry Bays Caitlin (Spring Ledge Bantry Bay x Lynfields Trudy). Many thanks to Anne Barkdoll (FL) for allowing Candace to come to FFC (she arrived on 6/12) to produce our first "Foothills" foal by *Gun Smoke!
