FUTURE FOALS

COMING FALL 2023

Plans are always subject to change and I’m extremely excited to announce this one! Katie will be bred to our very own HHF Bentley this fall for a 2023 colt. This 6 year old, 16 hand mare is an absolute dream to ride. She is Southern Playboy line bred with the amazing disposition to match. She has completed multiple endurance races at 50-55 miles, is naturally bombproof, and never refused anything I’ve pointed her toward. Bentley has proven himself in my eyes time and time again. Though he may not be well known in the show ring yet, he has a huge, promising future ahead of him. He should contribute all around size with good height, width, bone, large, kind eyes, and amazing gait. This foal will have the disposition, conformation, and athleticism to do it all! Color possibilities include black, smoky black, smoky cream, bay, buckskin, perlino, sorrel, palomino, and cremello.

COMING FALL 2023

After the Spring breeding season didn’t go as planned, I’m excited to announce that Misty will be bred to HHF Bentley for a Fall 2023 foal. This will be an amazing cross, a mix of old and new performance bloodlines with the disposition, confirmation, and gait for a great all around prospect. Color possibilities include grey, black (possibly homozygous), smoky black, and sorrel.

COMING FALL 2023

Hollywood Ellie Mae S. will be bred to HHF Bentley for a Fall 2023 foal. I am really looking forward to a cross between this Hollywood Playboy mare and Time To Tango colt. This foal will be sure to gain a lot of attention in the performance ring but as always, in my goals as a breeder, gait is not the only trait being bred for. This foal will have favorable size, conformation, and disposition as well. Color possibilities include black, smoky black, smoky cream, bay, buckskin, perlino, sorrel, palomino, and cremello.

HHF BENTLEY

$20,000/$500 stud fee

Bentley is our September 2019 colt by Time To Tango and out of our Twilight Tradition, a Sunrise Tradition mare. Bentley is the calmest, most laid back horse I’ve ever worked with, regardless of age or gender. He is bred to have phenomenal performance-quality gait but also inherited the stunning good looks that earned him a World Grand Champion title in the Open Weanling Model division, Reserve Champion Yearling at the National Breeder’s Championship show, and Reserve World Grand Champion in the Amateur division in 2021. Keep an eye out for this young stallion in the model, performance, and versatility rings in the future. Bentley is currently 15.1 hands and around 1,100 lbs at 2 1/2 years old and expected to mature at around 15.2+ hands and 1300+ lbs- he is a seriously giant boy and his size has really surprised me! He will begin his breeding career in the fall of 2023, being bred to Katie, Misty, and Ellie Mae, and will have cooled and frozen semen available for AI. Being smoky black, he can produce black, bay, smoky black, buckskin, palomino, and chestnut with a “plain” chestnut mare, though he was not bred for color. Get the best of every trait when you breed to HHF Bentley. Take advantage of his $500 stud fee for his first year breeding (2023 to the public); prices will rise as he and his offspring further prove themselves. Pictured fall of his yearling year.

PLAYBOY REMEDY’S GOLDEN SPELL “KATIE”

$45,000

Katie is a 16 hand 2016 mare that is Southern Playboy line bred. I have not run out of good things to say about this mare since I bought her from Clyde and Samantha Connelly in February of 2018 as a long yearling. She has the disposition, speed, athleticism, gait, conformation, and size I’ve always dreamed of having. She is the easiest horse I’ve ever broke to ride and has carried me many, many miles in the past few years and is a proven competitive endurance horse up to 55 miles. She is a serious prospect for my first try at Tevis, the “hardest 100 mile endurance race in North America.” There is absolutely nothing this horse will not do under saddle and gives 100% effort every ride. There is no other horse like her- I truly believe she is a once in a lifetime horse. She produced a stunning, confident, people oriented, black filly by Cardinal’s MVP last year. She will be bred to HHF Bentley in the fall.

PERFECT TANGO “CRICKET”

$35,000

Cricket is a 15 hand fall 2018 filly by Time To Tango and out of Twilight Tradition (by Sunrise Tradition). She is a full sibling to our stallion HHF Bentley. She was bred to be a performance quality show horse and that’s exactly what we got. Her stride length at her breathtaking fox trot is absolutely unreal. This fiery filly also has the energy level and athleticism to clean up in the versatility ring someday and eats up the distance on the trail. She was shown as a 2 year old at the 2021 World Show and Celebration with only 21 rides under saddle beforehand. She will be shown again at the 2022 World Show and Celebration as a 3 year old. She will lead on the trails, go out alone, is very “cowy” and puts herself in the perfect position when roping moving dummies, knows her leads, changes leads, pivots, and has a great stop. I plan on showing her in the performance ring, breakaway roping, barrels, poles, junior model, and any pleasure class we can make time for this fall. She’ll also start her endurance career as the Hillsdale Fall Blast in October with a 35 mile race. She has a great performance gait but so much versatility and more talent than I know what to do with. She performs well for timid riders as well. She is an absolute joy to work with.

MOUSE’S MAGIC MISTY GREY

$4,000

Misty is a 2004 mare raised and loved by Terry Record. Though she has changed hands numerous times through the years, I have contacted numerous previous owners and heard many wonderful things about her. I’m extremely excited about the opportunity to own this mare. I’m impressed by her quickness at adjusting to a new life and workload. She could very easily be pulled out of the pasture and shown. She has an easy, natural flat foot walk and big, flashy fox trot, and will not surprise you with any alternative intermediate gait. She is an easy keeper with likely 10+ more years of riding left in her with proper care. She is so incredibly sweet and will follow you anywhere with the largest, kindest eyes. She will be bred to HHF Bentley in the fall.

HOLLYWOOD ELLIE MAE S.

Not for sale

This Hollywood Playboy daughter belongs to my grandfather, Jerry Finke, and is a huge asset to the breeding program we created. Though we no longer run a business together, I am excited to see what she produces with HHF Bentley and am looking forward to keeping this site up to date with her offspring as well. I have ridden Ellie Mae a handful of times and am extremely pleased with the quality of this mare. She is a great trail horse with a sweet disposition and unbelievable stride length. She is not for sale at the moment.

SILVER BIRD

$6,000

Birdie, raised by Susan and Gary Thomlinson, is the newest addition to my herd. I have immense respect for their breeding program and jumped on the opportunity to own this filly. She has the disposition that their herd is famous for and is as gaited as it gets. She will be an amazing versatility and beginner friendly trail prospect. She is a Chocolatier granddaughter out of a Gone N Dun It daughter. She is homozygous for black with one copy of the silver gene. She’ll cross extremely well with Bentley someday to produce some seriously stocky offspring and perfect all around prospects. Pictured at 4 months old.

FUTURE FOALS

$3,500-$6,000

Pricing on foals will depend on how much I have invested in stud fees, gelding, and the training I put on them. I like to have foals leading, loading, standing for bathing and the farrier, body clipped, desensitized to as much as I can expose them to, introduced to water, and to the basics of lunging by the time they sell at 5-6 months old. I put a lot of research and money into giving them the best nutrition possible and am adamant about maintaining a good deworming protocol. Expect to see them priced at $3,500-$6,000 at this point in time.
