Heidi's and Jessy's page

  

Our introduction to this special breed came with the arrival of Jessy and Heidi to our farm, who were heavy in foal to the the late, great Bienvenue Lou Heros. The mares effortlessly delivered two lively colts, Phantom and Phoenix. It was joyful and rewarding raising the two colts, and it was seeing them off with tearful “good byes” to their new homes in Oregon and Alberta respectively.

Jessy and Heidi are smaller, solid, traditional Canadians, 14.2 hands high and fading blacks with no white markings. They are saddle broke but we use them mostly in harness as a team, going for regular excursions in the wagon or sleigh. Jessy and Heidi have been put to the test disking a field, making trips to the neighbour’s farm to pick up oats, displayed at the Rare Breeds Canada booth at the Royal Winter Fair, gave wagon rides to kids (and those young-at-heart) during special town-wide events, transporting wedding parties and took part in the Santa Claus Parade.

Heidi’s first foal, “Phoenix” is living up to his registered name “Phenom” in the show ring, winning numerous Grand Championships in breed shows and the herd stallion for Cache Canadians in Alberta. Heidi is proving herself to be our best and most consistent producer, with her foals in demand even before they're born! She's having one more so don't miss out! Jessy, too, has good-looking, reliable foals and will have one last Pendennis foal in May!
