“Miss Gone West” is a 15 hh dapple black thoroughbred broodmare. This sweetheart is a CUTE mover and a lover extraordinare. She will be one of our hunter broodmares, and is set for a 2016 breeding to Thanks for the Gold, a gorgeous up-and-coming hunter stallion has been cleaning up all year in the Green Conformation Hunters at the AA and AAA’s. He is by All the Gold, a legendary hunter sire himself. Missy herself can brag of two significant thoroughbred sires known for throwing sport horses – Gone West and Dynomania. Gone West I can advocate for myself, having had 3 of his offspring pass through my barn this year alone. Every single one of them had a flat kneed trot with large shoulder movement, a nose-to-knees jump, and a soft, kind eye. They were also well built with balanced conformation and naturally rhythmic ways of carrying themselves.
Missy broke her cannon on the track, right at her fetlock. Despite this, she stubbornly refused to let the jockey pull her up, finishing third in her final race. Talk about heart! The cause of the break was nutritional and workload related rather than genetic. Though she is now comfortably sound at the walk, trot, and canter, she will forevermore be a broodmare. She is also as sweet and as kind as they get, with the surest ways to her heart being small children and thorough groomings.
