He settled on selling Lena, a dark palomino mare, and Flo, a beautiful buckskin. Lena (Seven S Lena Doc), an own daughter of Genuine Doc, had produced five foals for us and Pete appreciated Lena as a good mother, a sweet horse, and a mare who bred back easily for the next season. The second mare, Flo (Shiners Flo Glo), is a well bred daughter of two World Champion Roping horses. Both mares are in foal to our stallion, Hesa Stylish Pepto, certainly providing potential buyers with a good value in both breeding and a two for one package.
Once back home after the sale, Pete was pleased with how both mares sold. But, he also struggled a bit with fond memories of these two mares. In thinking about it, he felt like he was letting go of trusted partners: the act of sharing their breeding and foaling creates an emotional attachment for any owner . But he hoped they had gone to good homes. He found out later Lena was headed to Manitoba, Cananda and Flo was on her way either to Nebraska or Canada.
