After searching world wide for a small curly pony for a client, I realized how rare curly ponies really are. Thus the dream was launched to start a small curly pony breeding program to help those children which are allergic to regular ponies. Like curly horses, curly ponies are usually hypoallergenic. We chose Captain Midnight EB, from Bancroft Curly Ponies, as our future curly pony herd sire. Captain is a black, curly pony, miniature cross. He is mostly smooth coated with a few swirls in his coat and waves in his tail hair. We knew we had to find a very curly pony mare if we wanted the curly gene to be passed onto their offspring. We found * OYY Rosalee at Top O' The Hill Farm. She is a palomino with a pretty split mane and lots of curls. Our first small to medium sized Curly pony foal was born on June 24, 2011!
Sire: * Pirate's Little Skipper
Captain Midnight has a beautiful sculptured head with large kind eyes. He has the friendly calm temperament of the curly horse, with big athletic movement for such a little one. Captain is expected to mature around 38".
Sire: Captain Midnight EB
* Copper is the first small to medium sized Curly pony born here at FloraLake. He is so cute, sweet, and playful. Copper is a sorrel colt with curls, plus lots of mane and tail. He moves with lots of knee and hock action like his sire which has some show winning mini driving lines in his pedigree. Copper has very good conformation with a little sculptured head. We think he will mature from 11-12 hands.
Dam: * Biscuit ABC 2422
Rosalee is a lovely golden palomino in the summer with lighter curls during the winter time. She has large eyes with curled eyelashes, a pretty split mane, and a friendly, willing temperament. She is quite athletic, as she jumped the gate in her pasture, one of the first times she was turned out after arriving here. Rosalee is expected to mature around 12.2 hands.
Daisy is a 37" cremello miniature mare. She has the sweetest temperament a horse could have. She is so kind, gentle, and friendly to everyone she meets.
Dam: Daisy EB, WCMHR
Princess is a palomino miniature fillie with blue eyes. She has a white star, snip, and four white socks. She has the sweetest temperament like her dam. She loves children and is easy to handle, a real pleasure to play with.
