Up for a challenging adventure? Gem’s your gal! This mare has tons of heart and LOVES people. She could stand with her head in your arms for hours. Super calm, loving and easy going around the farm, you can haul her to a grand trail head, put a saddle on her and point. She is up for the task at hand. She is a black based grey, Curly Fox Trotter mare standing at 15 hands and good for an intermediate rider or a beginner taking lessons to learn horseback riding. She is heterozygous for curls and will produce a curly foal 50% of the time when bred to a straight haired stallion or 75% of the time when bred to a curly stallion.
Her grand-dam is Lobo’s Blue Annie from Alma DeMille’s original MFT herd. We owned Blue Annie and riding her is like flying on the wind. Gem, is very much like her dam with smooth gaits (up to 8 mph) good endurance and charging up mountains. She just wants to get the job done and we love that about her. Our youngest daughter grew up riding her in her teenage years. Gem takes great care of her and anyone else who rides her. She was bred and raised on our farm and has had 2 foals to date. They are both shown in the photos below. The grey mare with the two girls riding is Blue Annie, Gem’s dam who lived to the ripe old age of 27 when we finally had to let her go. Gem is out of ZGC Dallas, bred by Zion’s Gait Curlies and owned by Becky Oldham in Northern Utah.
We were going to find Gem a new home, but have decided we just can’t part with her yet. Our daughter is on a mission and feel we need her home before we make such a change for her. Currently, we plan to breed Gem in the spring to a new stallion at Foster Farms named Boston. He is incredible and we think Gem’s foal will be amazing!
