These two colts took a break from gnawing each other's ears to pose for a picture.

A gorgeous colt by Copper Coin's Contender and out of a Deep Blue mare. Deep Blue is by the great Callaway's Blue Norther and out of Yorkshire Pudding, by New Yorker. Not only did Yorkshire Pudding win the ASHA National Three-Year-Old Three-Gaited Futurity with Redd Crabtree, but she produced two other top breeding stallions, Castle Bravo and Reedann's Top Gun. Three different crosses and three top producing stallions.

A colt by Dorian Wild Temper (SA) and out of a Periaptor mare. Wild Temper is the sire of the top fine harness stud, Dorian Warriors Song (SA). Wild Temper was the South African Five-Gaited Grand Champion in 2001 and 2002 and was second in the Five-Gaited Stallion World's Championship in the U.S. in 2003.

This fixy little colt is by Copper Coin's Contender and out of a sister to I'm First. Contender is by Prize Contender and out of Money Money, a Sultan's Contract mare. His second dam is the great Lady Trigg.
