Dam: Mariza (Afghan II)
"Marg" is Karen's favorite horse in the whole barn. A spunky, strong-willed female who always gets the job done, any woman would have to respect her! Well trained in carriage and over fences, Marg has brought home many blues from both riding and driving shows over the years and continues to occupy the premier stall in the barn!
Sire: Anthony (Reserve World Champion)
Dam: Steinfee (Steinadler)
Bred by the Hermann Family of Haflingerhof Karlsbad, Averil was imported from Germany as a weanling. A wonderful mover, she's competed at top pleasure & combined driving shows, driven alongside "Annie" as a wonderful wedding carriage pair, and confidently scaled the trails of Twin Birch over the last 10+ years. We're anxiously awaiting her Niagara YES foal due March 2022!
MINT CELEBRATION OF GENESIS
Sire: Arno Van Het Nieshof
Dam: Mint Julep MLF (Nobleman of Tudor Oaks)
"Taffy" was purchased in 2015 as Dirk's CDE pony entry. A give-it-her-all kind of mare, she was an amazing competitor until a 2018 driving accident put an end to her show career. With excellent bloodlines, she's mom to Wild Celebration YES (born 2/26/20) and the amazing "Mint Taffy YES" born 2/19/2022.
AN EXPENSIVE DECISION YES
Sire: Avanti of Cedar Lane
Dam: Anemone II YES
There's always that one "go to" horse in every barn and for Twin Birch, it's "Annie". Super versatile pony who's as competitive in harness as she is comfortable in the saddle. Born on the farm, she's a keeper!
AHNNYA OF GENESIS
Sire: Arno Van Het Nieshof
Dam: Amina NTF
Purchased as a 3-year-old in 2019, Ahnnya is trained to ride, drive, jump, and rule the roost! Her impressive bloodlines, combined with her giving spirit, make her an excellent competition pony! Ahnnya is for sale -- click HERE to inquire!
ANEMONE II YES
Dam: Akelei (Walder)
It would be appropriate, since DIrk and "Gramma" have the same birthdate that they would be bound for life. Yes, she's Dirk's favorite! While just coming into some aging, we've actually called her "Gramma" since she was a weanling. With many show miles in harness and under saddle, Gramma is now retired from competition and welcomed the arrival of her third foal ~ a stud colt bby A-Trinity MHF orn 3/18/22. We're still thinking hard on a good name, but he's another good one! Gramma's previous offspring (An Expensive Decision YES and Anemone's Accomplice YES) have both gone on to become amazing competition horses and this foal should be no different!
ANEMONE'S ACCOMPLICE YES
Sire: Standard of Excellence TOF
Dam: Anemone II YES (Nizas)
"Ada" is a spectacular hunter/jumper, dressage mount, and carriage horse. Standing 15.1 hands tall, she is the perfect mount for taller adults. Born on the farm and trained with care, this mare has consistently been in the ribbons at any show she attends. Most impressive were her wins at the 2018 AHR National Show where she took 1st place honors in the Hunter Under Saddle class of 29 competitors as well as National Show Championships in the Hunter Over Fences 2'-2'3", Open English WTC and Classical Dressage 1st Level & Above -- quite a successful competitor!
WRENAISSANCE MAN YES
Sire: Wrendition of Genesis
Dam: Flamboyance of Genesis (Alfa of Genesis)
What a sweet boy "Wren" is! Playful and down-to-business guy who we have high hopes for! Always willing and more than able, "Wren" brought home the 2021 HBC and AHA Reserve Champion Stallion ribbons. Not bad for his first two shows! Visit our FOR SALE page to watch Wren maneuver an in-hand obstacle course!
BUT HE'S NOT A HAFLINGER!?!
