Red & White Spotted Jack
DOB 12/28/06
Birth Height: 20½"

Sire:  Shorecrests Little Buddy, 32½" Red
      Grand Sire:  Lawzyday Farm's Cherokee, 29½" Red
      Grand Dam:  Springlake Rosebud, 33" Light Red


Dam:  Boone's Little Betty Jane, 31" Gray/White Spot
      Grand Sire:  DBF's Little Frosty, 35" Gray/White Spot
      Grand Dam:  KMA's Mona Lisa, 32½" Gray w/Red highlights


Frosty was a long.. long wait for us! We thought his mother was due weeks earlier, but apparently we were a bit off. Frosty is a gorgeous little jack! His spots are definately red right now, I'm not certain if they will remain that way or not. His sire, Buddy, has thrown a few sorrel spots for us, and none have reached maturity yet so I'm not going to guess as to whether the red and white stays or goes! Frosty has a long pedigree behind him on his sire's side with a lot of LN breeding (LN Redsonnehi, LN Nighthawk, etc). His grandfather is Lawzyday Farm's Cherokee, a 29.5" red jack, with over 600 ancestors in his pedigree. On his mother's side, Frosty comes from a line of Boone's breeding.

Frosty is a very tiny foal, and stands very correct, with nice back legs and a nice square build and an absolutely beautiful head. We considered offering him as a future herdsire prospect because we can't find anything to fault him on at all -- but, there are a few taller ancestors in his pedigree, including a 35" grandsire, that have helped us make the decision to offer him as a very, very nice pet or show gelding for someone. I would guess Frosty will mature under 32" given his birth height and his parents sizes. We are offering Frosty by himself when weaned or you could take him home right now as a package with his mom, Betty Jane (information on Betty Jane below!)

      Grand Sire:  Lawzyday Farm's Cherokee, 29½" Sorrel
      Grand Dam:  Springlake Rosebud, 33" Light Sorrel

Tucker was born during a trip my parents took to Kentucky..hence the name "Tucker"... He's a short, correct, and stout little jack and should mature in the 32" range like both his parent's
.


Gone to a new home!

Light Red Jack
DOB 9/14/06

Sire:  Loss Creek Brody, 30½" Gray & White Spotted
      Grand Sire:  to be posted
      Grand Dam:  to be posted


Dam:  TST Dolly, 34" Grey *MSF (Masked Spotting Factor)
      Grand Sire:  Untraced
      Grand Dam:  Untraced


This little guy is just adorable. The beginning of his life was a bit tramatic -- his mom, Dolly, went into labor in the middle of the afternoon, and delivered out in the pasture a few days before we thought she was ready. A more experienced jennet of ours stole the baby from her, and wouldn't let Dolly near. Poor little thing didn't know who the heck his momma was! Luckily, we discovered the foal after what must not have been more than 20 minutes from his arrival and separated distraught mom, Dolly, and baby from the herd and gave them privacy inside the barn. Murphy, the kidnapper, haha... even tried to jump her way over a stall door to get into the barn after what she was convinced was her baby. It was quite an eventful birth for all of us! As an update, Murphy calmed down after a few hours of pacing and pawing to get into the barn, and was fine by the next day. Dolly and the baby bonded immediately and all are living happily ever after!

Light Red/GrayWhite Spotted Jack
DOB 8/02/06
Birth Height: 22"

Sire:  Shorecrests Little Buddy, 32½" Light Red
      Grand Sire:  Lawzyday Farm's Cherokee, 29½" Red
      Grand Dam:  Springlake Rosebud, 33" Light Red


Dam:  Half Ass Acres Shania Twain, 34" Gray/White Spot
      Grand Sire:  Fisher's Great Gildersleeve, 32¼" Tri-Colored Spot
      Grand Dam:  Half Ass Acres Jody, 32½" Light Brown/Gray/White Spot


Jeb holds a very special place here on our farm. At 2 days old, he became very depressed and weak and lost interest in eating. We had to milk his very patient mom, Shania, and bottle feed him for about 3 days. The vet ran various tests on both mom and Jeb, but came up with nothing other than an infection that Jeb somehow came down with. Little Jeb ran a high temp for about a week, but the medicine the vet put him on knocked whatever it was right out of him, and now, he's a healthy, happy little guy who loves to run and play with his best friend, Smokey. Oh, and spoiled, did I mention spoiled? Jeb's been getting so much attention from us, he's pretty sure he's the king of the farm. Uniquely colored as well, his spots are light gray and some appear light red plus he is perfectly patterned left side and right. He's got a nice even bite and a great build, and I'd expect him to mature around 33" or so. Looking to place Jeb in a life-long home with a very special family.

Dark Brown/Smoky Black Jack
DOB 7/29/06
Birth Height: 20½"

Sire:  Shorecrests Little Buddy, 32½" Light Red
      Grand Sire:  Lawzyday Farm's Cherokee, 29½" Red
      Grand Dam:  Springlake Rosebud, 33" Light Red


Dam:  Brumar's Guardian Angel, 33" Black,no cross
      Grand Sire:  Dewey Meadows Armani, 34" Gray
      Grand Dam:  Coco, 34" Dark Brown


Smokey is a handsome little guy, very stocky, wide chested, great overall build. He has such an expressive face and just seems to know he's special by the way he carries himself. His coloring is a bit strange... he started out as a charcoal gray/black and now, seems to have black legs and face, and a deep chocolate body under his sun-bleached baby fur. We're not really certain what he'll turn out to be! We're looking for a special home for Smokey, we've grown quite attached! Visit our 'for sale' page for more information.

Sorrel, Gray and White Spotted Jennet
DOB 7/12/06
Birth Height: 21½"

Sire:  Shorecrests Little Buddy, 32½" Light Sorrel
      Grand Sire:  Lawzyday Farm's Cherokee, 29½" Sorrel
      Grand Dam:  Springlake Rosebud, 33" Light Sorrel


Dam:  Windcrest Miss Betsy, 33" Gray/White Spot
      Grand Sire:  Boone's Marble Fudge, 34" Brown/White Spot
      Grand Dam:  McDonald's McBubbles, 32" Gray/White Spot


I've been waiting for a spotted jennet from Betsy ever since we purchased her... and this little girl was worth the wait! Gypsy is gorgeous from her head to her hooves and everything in between. I don't think I've ever seen a prettier head on a foal and she is the first tri-color spot we've produced. Photos make it hard to tell, but in person Gypsy has gray legs but her body color is sorrel, and her white spots set it all off perfectly. Combine her unique coloring with her solid pedigree and great build, and she is very near "perfect". Sorry to say, but at this time we've decided to retain this fabulous jennet as a future Shorecrest brood jennet!

Sorry, not for sale... but we just had to share her photos!

Light/Medium Sorrel Jack w/Star
DOB 7/05/06
Birth Height: 22"

Sire:  Shorecrests Little Buddy, 32½" Light Red (Sorrel)
      Grand Sire:  Lawzyday Farm's Cherokee, 29½" Red (Sorrel)
      Grand Dam:  Springlake Rosebud, 33" Light Red (Sorrel
)

Dam:  Parkside Flame, 32" Red (Sorrel)
      Grand Sire:  Windcrest Coppertop, 31½" Bright Sorrel
      Grand Dam:  Windcrest Maria, 32" Gray-Dun


Spotlite is a friendly little jack, who is currently busy being spoiled by my kids. He has a strong pedgiree behind him on both sides, containing lots of sorrel and small sizes. Spotlite is built like both of his parents, nice and stocky, has a great set of legs and should mature around 32". He is nice and square, and although he is quite young yet, so far has shown us he has potential to become a future breeding jack but we also think he'd make a fabulous pet for someone. For that reason, we're offering him as a pet or future breeding jack prospect.

Spotlite will be officially offered for sale after everyone on my waiting list looking for a jack foal has been contacted!

Gray Jennet
Birth Height:  21¼"
DOB 04/24/06

Sire:  Shorecrests Little Buddy, 32½" Light Red
      Grand Sire:  Lawzyday Farm's Cherokee, 29½" Sorrel
      Grand Dam:  Springlake Rosebud, 33" Light Sorrel


Dam:  LDF Diascia, 33" Dark Brown
      Grand Sire:  PMF Chico Bandito, 32" Brown/Gray-Dun w/NLP
      Grand Dam:   SNS Murphy Brown, 34" Dark Brown


Daisy is a very, very friendly foal. She's been a bit spoiled by my kids, as has her best friend, Maggie (see below). Daisy has a very nice build, she's square and has nice straight back legs, a good bite and solid front. She's got her dad's head and a bit of his sorrel coloring in the highlights on her grey coat. She has a spectacular pedigree behind her on her sire's side with a ton of sorrel, including her 29.5" grandsire Lawzyday Farms Cherokee, LCR Valintino 50 and LN Redsonnehi. Her mom's background adds Charlie Bandito to the package. She will make a fine show or brood jennet for anyone's herd. We have too many girls with similiar bloodlines or she would be staying on our farm. Daisy is for sale. Visit our 'for sale' page for more information.

Spotted Jennet Foal
Birth Height:  23"
DOB 04/30/06

Sire:  Shorecrests Little Buddy, 32½" Light Red
      Grand Sire:  Lawzyday Farm's Cherokee, 29½" Sorrel
      Grand Dam:  Springlake Rosebud, 33" Light Sorrel


Dam:  Boone's Little Spotted Rosebud, 34½" Brn/Wht Spot
      Grand Sire:  Boone's Spotted Dude, 34" Spotted
      Grand Dam:  Boone's Little Rosie, 33½" Dark Red


Maggie is a favorite here on our farm. She is a very nicely built jennet, who is full sister to Laurel Highland, a 2004 jennet that we retained. We expect Maggie to mature just as nicely, if not even better, than her sister Laurel has done. Maggie comes with the sorrel genes from her father's family who include 29.5" grandsire Lawzyday Farm's Cherokee, LCR Valintino 50, and LN Redsonnehi just to name a few. Her grandmother and greatgrandmother on her mother's side send sorrel her way as well. She makes a fine candidate for the show ring and as a future brood jennet with her pretty color pattern and perfect rear legs. Maggie would be a sure pick to retain for our herd had we not already kept her full sister Laurel. Now being offered for sale! Visit our 'for sale' page for more information!
