she contracted Strangles. It was an extremely severe
case, and although she survived, she was very weak for months.
Before having her first and currently only foal,
Dutchess was shown in halter and showmanship. She was then mainly used as a trail
horse and lesson horse. After having her foal in 2008, we planned to get her back
in shape, and into the ring again. She instead got put on the back burner, and has
enjoyed the simple life out in the mare turn-outs.
Dutchess is loaded with amazing old school working bloodlines. Her sire, Stage Salute,
was a branded Wiescamp stallion. In addition to her paternal Skipper W lines, her
dam, Miss Talley Flash, carries the blood of great horses including Blondys Dude,
Jackie Bee, Talley Man, and Poco Bueno.
