Cocoa is a large and beautiful buckskin curly mare who stands at 15.2. She is Lisa’s personal riding mare and has been a fair, yet firm leader of our small herd since she was 3 years old. She is very easy to get along with for horse and human alike.
Our past trainer, Alma DeMille, says he has never known a better quality Fox Trotter in all the hundreds of horses he has trained and he has known only about 10 that are equal to Cocoa’s quality. She has it all…… incredible smooth gaits including walk, flat walk, fox trot, running walk, canter and gallop. All these gaits are easily achieved by the rider with just a kiss to her or touch to her sides. Cocoa is confident, athletic, light on the reins and listens to her rider’s every command. She is sure footed and very careful with her riders and her quick mind enables her to learn things 10 times quicker than even other high quality horses. When Alma trained her in 2009, he was very excited about her! When we went to his ranch to try her out we saw exactly what he meant!! She is definitely a favorite around here! It has been wonderful to have Cocoa as a companion since she was one month old.
Cocoa’s pedigree is only 1/8 Walker’s Prince T, and has no WPT II or inbreeding so she will cross well with just about any high quality curly or straight Fox Trotter stallion. She is from the Bashkir Curly Horse bloodlines and double registered with the MFTHBA and the ICHO.
Seven beautiful offspring exist from this lovely mare and Cocoa is in foal to ZGC Vegas Jackpot again for another foal in April of 2023! This will be her last foal as we want to spend the rest of her life having fun adventures. She has had two fillies from this cross and they are spectacular.
