We have Decided to have "Theme Years" and this year it's all about:


"Marvel" (as in the Comic Books)

What a Dream Come True! I Finally have a LWO + Filly! My Sincerest Thank You Goes to Shauna Lidikay of Ravenloft Miniatures, For this Awesome Opportunity :) I Bought Sparkle in March of 2011, Being Bred to the Incredible Cross Country Erica's Hearts Afire, 2X Reserve National Champion Halter Stallion. Along the Way it was Agreed Upon that Sparkle would be Rebred to Sparrow for a Repeat of this Filly (More Chances for me to get an LWO+). So Marvel was Foaled out in California On Valentines Day! & She is More Wonderful then we Could have even Imagined! Upon Genetic Testing We Discovered She is my "Dream Color" from this Cross, Silver Buckskin with Tobiano/LWO+ & Hetrozygous for Black & Agouti! But More Importantly She has Incredible Conformation. Marvel Should Mature Around 30" or So. Marvel and her Dam Arrived in December 2012 and She is Completely Gorgeous!!!

UPDATE!!!! Marvel has Proven to be an Incredible Producer! Her First Foal has arrived and he is STUNNING!

"Cato"
Desert Realms Uprising

DOB: April 24, 2012 (313) @ 9pm Smokey Creme Appaloosa Colt 21" (Approx Birth Height)
Erica's StreakN for Bucks (National Top Ten Halter) X Magic Mist Treasure of Bonsai (Grand Champion Halter)
AMHA # A 210521 / AMHR # 317099T

Cato is a Stunning Lab Tested Smokey Crème Appaloosa Two Year Old Colt, Foaled April 24, 2012. He is Out of My Gorgeous GOLDEN Palomino Mare “Treasure”. Who is a Grand Champion Halter Mare & Futurity Champion. Cato is Sired by the Fabulous Buckskin Appaloosa Big City Son, Erica's StreakN for Bucks, Who is a Multi Grand Champion, National Top Ten Halter Champion, Owned by Magic Mist Miniatures. Cato is Well Built, Great Conformation, Beautiful Head, Terrific Hip, Perfect Bite and Legs. He has the Conformation to do well in the Showring and Later On Become a Wonderful Herd Sire. Unfortunately This Picture Doesn’t Do him Any Justice, But at Least it’s Fairly Current, Taken July/2013 (15 Months Old). Cato is Linebred Egyptian King and Buckeroo, Champions Top and Bottom of his Pedigree. He is a Grandson of my Favorite Buckeroo Son Little Kings Big City Buck. Seriously this Colt has Everything You Could Possibly Want, Conformation, Pedigree, Color, Personality the Only Thing Missing is a Show Record which could be Easily be Taken Care of! I am Hoping to Get Some New Pictures and a Current Height on Cato Before He Leaves, For his new Home. Cato Should Mature 32" - 33"

"Glimmer"
Desert Realms Girl On Fire

DOB: May 15, 2012 (327) at 2:00 am Sorrel Pinto Mare 33.25"
MMMTC Unexpected Ice Storm X Lazy Bear Lady Sapphire
AMHA # A 210807 / AMHR # 318502T / PtHA # (Pending)

I Know, I know I need Some Current Pictures of Miss Glimmer! Since She is Pictured here at a Week Old. This Little Filly was my Favorite Foal, Last Year. Out of our Matriarch “Sapphire” and Sired by our Former Herd Sire Multi Reserve Grand Champion MMMTC Unexpected Ice Storm. She is Maturing So Nice, But Unfortunately I don’t Currently have any Up to Date Pictures, of her. Hopefully that will Change! “Glimmer” is a Full Sibling to the Gorgeous Desert Realms Lady Sardonyx. She is Every Bit as Beautiful as Nyx, But they are Wrapped in Totally Different Paper! Glimmer and Nyx are our Only Full Siblings, We bred So Far, & We are Very Pleased with Both of them! Glimmer has Correct Conformation, Gorgeous Head & a Sassy Personality. (Which I’m sure She got from her Momma) Topped Off with Striking Color, Glimmer is Unofficially Tobiano and Splashed White (I Really Need to get her tested!) & She is Red, White and Blue Just like her Older Sister Ember. We Might Get Glimmer Out and Showing Next Year Depending on how Everything Goes. Glimmer Should Mature Around 33” and I really need to get a Current Measurement on her! I’ve been Slacking This Year!

Glimmer has been SOLD!
Thank You & Congratulations to Anna Hearn & Family!!!
