Ella has been bred back for 2016, although Teresa Griner has first right of refusal on the colt option and Debra Benjamin has first right of refusal on the filly option! We are also expecting a halfbred foal out of the TB mare (Amelia), sired by Topgun. Amelia is closely related to Ella's TB dam, Lexy, so we expect a lovey eventing type halfbred out of Amelia.

Foals purchased from BDF can sometimes be boarded after weaning if requested, as we know age appropriate turnout is not always available at boarding facilities. We can also find great weanling to two year old boarding options in Ocala for great prices.

Born on June 28, 2012, this lovely gelding is a half-bred Connemara.  His mother is Swift Ocoee River and his sire is the TB stallion, Artrageous.  Flynn is the boldest and friendliest I have had on the farm.  Such a people horse and he is filling out nicely!  Flynn should mature to approximately 15.1-15.2.  (he is 14.3 now at 2.5); He has three lovely gaits with nice suspension in the trot and a ground covering canter.  He was bred for eventing and is a naturally forward fellow.
 
Flynn is lifetime USEF registered and registered as an ACPS halfbred.  Flynn has worn a saddle and bridle and loves to be handled.   He cross ties well, bathes, and is good loading on/off a trailer.  Flynn has been just been lightly started under saddle.  We took Flynn to the Connemara Retion IV show in Ocala in November 2014, where he won a 1st in the young horse class and a 3rd in the half-bred class.

Black Dog's Fiorella (AKA Ella) was born on May 9th, 2005.  She is a lovely bay with a pretty blaze.  She is quite correct and a people filly.  She is by the Trakehner stallion, Feuertanzer. 
 
Ella was bred for athleticism and she definitely has it!  She was 16.2 at 4.5 years and at 7 was 17 hands.  Ella scored as high as 77.6% in Dressage Sport Horse classes!  Ella also finished 2006 in 5th place for Hunter Breeding Yearlings for Zone 4.
 
Ella is our best broodmare for Connemara crosses.  She suffered a hind leg pasture injury at 2 and was never started under saddle.  Ella has had 3 foals (Mia, Connor and Dylan) and is bred back for 2015.
