Sonitas Shining Star

Haidas Diablo x Gay Lena Sonita (by Sonitalena)

 
2007 Sorrel/Overo APHA Mare * 14.3 Hands

In July of 2012 we were facing the fact that our only APHA mare, PG, would not see another summer.  We had dicussed the possiblity of getting another broodmare but had decided we would wait until the spring of 2013 to begin that search.  So imagine our shock when his well bred, colorful mare was listed on a Facebook Tack Swap page for sale in mid-August.  Mom and I decided to go take a look and came back with "Haidy".  We put a few rides on her in the fall of 2012 and she is a smart, catty mare.  Looking forward to some more riding in 2013 and she of course will be bred to Doc Freckles for a 2014 foal.

Brandin Schrader rode Haidy for us for a couple weeks in September since we were leggin up the rest of the herd for a trip to Shawnee National Forest.  Haidy is pictures above with Brandin at a Horsemanship Clinic he conducted at the Washington County Fairgrounds on September 29, 2012.  Pictured below with Shelly riding the same day.  Looking to hit the trails in 2013.
  
Her sire died young but earned almost $10,000 in NRHA competition.  He is by the legendary Haidas Little Pep (Peppy San Badger x Doc's Haidy by Doc Bar).
and is a FULL brother to the champion gelding, Warm Up Sport, earner of $168,526.
Her dam is an own daughter of NCHA Hall of Fame stallion, Sonitalena.  He has earned over $200,000 in NCHA competition and is a proven producer.
Just off the papers on her dam's side is C-Note's Sawbuck, champion stallion from the legendary cross of C-Note and Nylon, both proven champions.
