The cheat sheet as to who's who in the barn!

Don William WF "Liam"
2007 AWR gelding

The little black pearl out of Anne's favorite mare, Lily, by the incomparable Dressage Royal. Kind, sweet & fancy - just the way we like them!

Dream Girl WF "Daisy"
2008 AWR filly
(Dressage Royal x Savannah WF)
Another Dressage Royal filly but it is hard to see him as this filly is a clone of her great-granddam Able Spirit. I semi-jokingly refer to her as LP - short for Little Prissy!

Dreamcatcher WF "McDreamy" or "Derek"
2008 AWR colt
(Dressage Royal x Abracadabra WF)
The youngest of the 2008 foals, McDreamy is just that. And if you've never watched Grey's Anatomy (the first season), well, just think of him as a ridiculously handsome horse with great hair and that extra special quality that draws you in closer, closer and closer still. He makes you covet him, plain & simple.

South American Way "Bobby"

Waldaire "Wally"

Wallace WF "Lacy"

(Waldaire x As You Wish WF)
The first to come up to a person in her pasture to see what's up...Lona is an in your pocket type of horse.

Wylie WF

2006 AWR filly
(Waldaire x Amelia WF)
Gifted with her grand-daddy's trot from the very beginning, Wylie has a limitless future ahead of her. Of all the Waldaire/Again & Again fillies - this is the one that reminds me most of him in terms of movement. Full sister to Wichita Rose WF.

Wei WF "Bea"
2006 AWR filly
(Waldaire x Sabrina WF)
Bea is Sabrina's ET daughter but if I didn't know better, I would say she was her great-granddam reincarnated - she is THAT reminiscent of Today I'm Trying. Full sister to Wolfgang WF.

Wizard WF "Oz"

2006 AWR stallion
(Waldaire x Abracadabra WF)
Oz is a clone of Wally who will mature out around 16.1 hands. When he was born, I sat back and said, "Hello Wally!" as I felt like I was attending the delivery of my stallion...just 17 years later.

Wolfgang WF "Puck"

2008 AWR colt
(Waldaire x Sabrina WF)

(Waldaire x Southern Leigh WF)
Leigh's second foal who sadly had to be euthanized as a yearling due to an injury.

Westerleigh WF "Joy"
2008 AWR filly
(Waldaire x Southern Leigh WF)
With her Donnerhall type socks up front and a distinctive star, Joy is a hoot! Powerful gaits & excellent conformation are her most outstanding qualities.

Waterlily WF "Millie"
2006 AWR mare
(Waldaire x Achtung Again WF)
Lily gave us a lovely Wally filly who happens to be a clone of herself...just with a smoother topline & (although we didn't think it was possible) a sweeter temper.

Wichita Rose WF "Rosie"
2007 AWR filly
(Waldaire x Amelia WF)
Amelia outdid herself! Wylie WF (her first foal by Waldaire) was very, very nice. Rosie is exceptional...and not just in terms of height!

Whodini WF "Dini"
2007 AWR gelding
(Waldaire x Abracadabra WF)
Emmy made another little clone of Wakanda WF & Wizard WF. Perhaps we should branch out into driving as he would make up a matching pair & and a spare? Something to think about for the future to say the least!

Wallstreet Rose
1999 AWR mare
(Wallstreet Kid x Flashpoint xx)
Gretta joined up after having a lovely start in South Carolina with a nice background in hunters, a bit of eventing & some low level dressage. She has had one foal by Waldaire (Wall Street WF) and is expecting her second in 2009.

Wall Street WF "Hansel"
2007 AWR gelding
(Waldaire x Wallstreet Rose)

Wyncote WF "Cody"
2007 AWR gelding
(Waldaire x Southern Leigh WF)
Leigh certainly stamps her boys - they get her chrome plus a bit from the stallion! Oh, I would be remiss if I didn't mention the amazing elasticity & power that is a uniform trait with them, too. Full brother to Westerleigh WF & Westbrook WF.

Woodruff WF "Clay"
2004 AWR gelding
(Wolkentanz I x Southern Leigh WF)
Ginger's baby boy.

Johnny B. Good "Johnny"
1993 gelding
Our quirky I2 schoolmaster who is The One to ride when you want to learn how to do flying changes. Big gaits are combined with some of the less than stellar attributes from Voltaire but he does know his job!

Debutaunte "Deb"
1990 Hanoverian mare
(Dahlwitz/Wendekreis/Weisenbaum xx)
Our schoolmistress who has had foals by Idocus & Wonderful. Quite the character and excellent teacher! Hopefully she'll have a Waldaire foal in 2010.
