This mare is one of our best producing broodmares and she would not be for sale if we were not drastically reducing our herd size! She consistently produces great foals, with good minds, and excellent athletic ability. She has thrown her grulla coloring on most of her foals. We sold one of her sons, who was a grulla and white stallion, to Texas this year and he is being shown competively there.

Link here for pedigree information. She has an awesome pedigree with absolutely no holes in it - the very best of foundation Paint breeding! This gorgeous mare is absolutely one of our favorite horses. She has beautiful color and a fancy pattern that she passes on to her foals. She is sired by Bye Bingo, who was a fabulous broodmare sire. His foals consistently carry unusual patterns and pass these fancy patterns onto their foals. Natalee has produced beautiful horses for us on a consistent basis. She is an excellent mother, takes good care of her foals, and has a pleasant, easy going disposition. Natalie injured her right front foot as a weanling. Her owner at the time attempted to have the injury repaired through expensive surgery at a university veterinarian hospital, which actually aggrivated her injury. This injury has not interferred with her ability to successfully move with the herd or get around in the pasture. Natalie has a beautiful sentimental history. Natalie was part of Don Allgood's selective herd of horses at the time of his death. Don loved his horses, and Natalee was one of his favorites, Don raised some of the very best foundation bred APHA horses and was one of the original breeders of foundation Paints, focusung on quality, pedigree, color and disposition. Every time we visitied Don, he let me go visit Natalee. He knew I wanted her and I was willing to pay a high price. But, he wasn't interested in selling. He prized Natalee and felt she was the perfect example of the quality horse that he had bred for his entire life. The last time we visited Don, I asked him again if he would be interested in selling Natalee. Of course, he declined my offer. But, he said that I would have her before I knew it. I thought it was a strange comment. But, sadly, Don passed away a few weeks after that visit. A few days after his death, we were contacted by his wife who told us that Don wanted us to purchase his herd of horses to continue the breeding program he had worked so many years to establish. What a kind and generous thought. We were able to purchase his entire herd. Many of those horses are still here on our farm. And, we are offering some for sale because we significantly downsizing. It is hard to let Natalee go, but I am simply not able to get out and enjoy the horses much due to my illness. Natalee loves attention, is quiet and easy to handle. Even though she has the injured front foot, I was able to ride her when she was younger. Of course, she enjoyed a quiet trail ride as much as I did! Natalee never bucked or acted up while I broke her to ride. And, interestingly, every one of her foals started riding exactly the same way. A wonderful example of one of her foals is Nifty Blue - gorgeous, athletic, intellegent, and a quick and willing learner. Her foals have always been marketable and have had excellent success. A piece of my heart, and a piece of APHA history follows Natalee. She is certainly a one of a kind horse! Natalee is one of the select personal horses Mary Alice is offering for sale. The price is not negoatiable, we are not interested in accepting trades, and we are not interested in payments. She is priced for a straight forward cash sale.

She is an excellent broodmare, and also a really nice riding horse! $5000 Zoe - Aged Black Mare. RIDES and DRIVES!!! Zoe is the perfect horse for an inexperienced rider or someone learning to drive. I have more experience than confidence when driving a horse! I LOVE to drive this mare. She is an older mare, I am guessing close to 20 years old. But, given my lack of confidence in driving, my philosophy is that an old horse is a cheap insurance policy! Zoe is the last of the horses I have been able to use, which says the most anyone could say about her! Despite health issues, I have always been able to hitch and drive her without any problems. She stands quietly to be hitched. She follows every direction while driving. She is not nervous, but has plenty of energy and absolutely loves to go for a drive! She is not sour, irritable, or difficult at all. Even friends that have never driven a horse, and Garrett, drive her. Last spring I drive her for around seven miles in one afternoon and she trotted up the last hill home, quietly walked down the driveway, and was waiting to go for a drive the next day! I am sure she has some arthritis, as most older horses do, but she moves well and enjoys being used. I purchased this mare from the Amish as a trustworthy driving horse and she has never disappointed! On my last outing with the horses, I was able to drive her several miles to pick up Garrett from school. What an exciting surprise for Garrett and a great day for me! Of course, he was able to drop off his friends in the neighborhood by horse and buggy, with parents waiting on the porch with cameras! This mare created priceless memories that will last a lifetime. I have driven this mare over high bridges with low rails... scared the poo out of me, but she looked at me like, "What are you so worried about!" I have driven her through heavy traffic, waited in the school line to pick up Garrett, used her for family outtings, and have enjoyed every single opportunity I have had to drive her! She has been out on pasture all summer. She is not thin, but she is not as heavy as I like to keep her. She has enjoyed being on pasture, but I like to keep her in a smaller pasture of few acres and feed her each day. If you plan on using her often, that is probably the best plan for maintaining her. She is not on any medications. I make sure her teeth are floated a couple of times a year, and her teeth stay in good shape. I also worm her every three months because she is an older mare. Otherwise, she requires no special care or maintenance. And, "Zoe" - life - is her perfect name! When I am driving her, I feel the joy in every single moment. Clearly she is a special part of our family, and she will be a very special part of the family in her new home as well. She is not a particular horse, so I am believe she will adjust well, and even be happier, in her new home where she is used and enjoyed often. I may only have a chance to drive her a few times a year, but she is exactly the same, dependable, quiet, well-behaved buddy every time I take her out! I haven't ridden her myself, but some kids rode her around the farm one day. She rides very gentle, plow reins, and doesn't do anything fancy, but does the very best thing - behaves dependibly and faithfully every time! $1,000
