1. 1999 bay varnish roan mare, Arctic Top Spark 4 generation Ap x Ap granddaughter of High Sign Nugget. Gorgeous mare, easy to handle, great producer and appears to be homozygous for E (black).

2. 2002 bay leopard mare, Queen’s Jubilee. Feather is a 4 generation Appaloosa to Appaloosa bred daughter of DREA Domino Hopichip. I purchased her as a broodmare, good producer, easy breeder. She stands nicely for farrier and is good to handle. $1500 +GST

3. 2008 bay with blanket & spots filly, Stars Sleepy Kitty. This filly will mature near 16 hands, very well put together. Good to handle, ground work started. Will be under saddle this summer and price will increase with training. $1500 + GST

4. 2007 solid chestnut mare, Stars Really Foxy. This is a gorgeous young mare that could carry a ton of pattern (dam is a leopard and sire has a large blanket) and would be a great addition to any breeding program. She has a wonderful, quiet disposition, super easy to work with. Very athletic. Started under saddle and training will continue when the weather will allow it! $2000 + GST

5. 1999 bay leopard broodmare, OK Ripple Hawk. A great little mare, pure sweetheart. Beautiful head that she passes on consistently. She was injured prior to my purchasing her and has some arthritis in her rear hocks and fetlock joints. Easy to get in foal and no foaling problems. Great to handle. Bonus to any breeding program. $1500 + GST

6. 1999 black roan with spots over hips, Stars Honor. Good producing mare broke to ride. Shown at halter as a youngster, placed in top three in every show. Honor is very good minded, kind and easy to work with. No problems foaling out, good mom. A very comfortable and nice ride, always willing and tries to please. She would be a great 4H project horse for a Level 3 and up member. $2500 + GST

7. 2010 black near fewspot filly, Stars KoKo. Very nice filly that will mature near 16 hands, well put together, great disposition. KoKo is a lot of fun to work with, she is very outgoing and game to try things. She is homozygous for Lp so will give you colour from whatever she is bred to. Learning to stand for farrier etc. $1500 + GST  SOLD

All are up to date with vaccinations and deworming. The experienced mares are all excellent to be with during foaling and for us to handle the foals right away. I have never had any problems with any of them being overprotective etc. The ones that were foaled here have been handled since birth and are very people friendly but respectful of our space. All are easy for me to catch anywhere. Extended pedigrees may be seen for all on All Breed Pedigree website -

We are willing to take payments, but the horse stays here until fully paid for. We have a Purchase Agreement Contract for all sales. They can be bred to the suitable stallion for the same price if you wish, after the middle of May. Thank you for considering a Starmyri Appaloosa – PUT A “STAR” IN YOUR PASTURE TODAY!

Snow, Snow and more Snow

Molly on snow pile in front yard

Well, the past month has been quite the roller coaster ride weatherwise - from extremely cold to extremely warm, freezing to melting! It has been a long time since we have had this much snow to deal with. Very thankful for the tractor! Too much for the poor little quad to handle that is for sure. Unfortunately with the melting, everything is covered in ice and it is very slippery, so even with milder temps there is no riding to be done.....:(  But, have been spending time with everyone just playing around so it is not all lost. The gang is healthy and in good shape. Oreo's tummy is growing, only three more months until baby time. Spring is going to be very welcome this year....
