Here's a very special foundation broodmare for our farm, sired by one of our all-time favorite stallions, the Grand Prix dressage stallion Meisterwind, by Donauwind, and out of my incomparable junior event mare, Pine Song.
Nightshade has consistently produced successful hunters, as well as a few special dressage horses. The quality of her offspring shine - but she herself is also treasured here at Solomon Farm for her gentle nature and beautiful gaits -- the perfect lesson horse for working students, or children's trail-riding companion.
Nightshade has produced multiple offspring that have won on the line or over fences at the big shows on either coast. Check out Nightshade's Photo Gallery to see photos of some of her foals!
Nightshade stands 15.2 hands, and as as a sideline, she has also produced one lovely sport pony daughter - SF Goodnight Moon. From riding herd on the broodmare band to being a patient teacher in the ring, as well as a wonderful mother to her foals, Nightshade has excelled at everything we've asked of her.
Nightshade is out of my very special first show mare, Pine Song - a lovely, balanced and typey Quarter Horse mare who was just as good at Training level eventing as she was at herding cows, or performing a half-pass. Nightshade is enjoying a well-deserved retirement at Solomon Farm.
