COLONIAL LASS, 2014 16h+ bay mare

This beautiful sweet, and flashy mare is a half sister, out of the same dam, as 3 wonderful horses we helped place over the past two years into great homes — Excavator, Butterfly Girl, and Hurricane Andy. All 3 of her siblings are quiet, kind, and sweet with great brains and athletic aptitude. Excavator and Butterfly Girl are taking to eventing and dressage like stars, and Andy is a trail partner par excellence. So we can attest that Lass comes from the best of families, both horse and human, and if she is anything like her siblings she is going to be your sweetest best friend and beloved partner for so many disciplines. Our volunteer who took her photos was head over heels in love with this sweet girl. Her connections report she is a barn favorite and a wonderful home is an absolute must, as she deserves to be loved and pampered always! She is retiring after 32 lifetime starts with 5 wins, 7 seconds, and 7 thirds. She hit the board in 6 of her 9 starts this year, but her connections feel its time to let her move onto a second career where she will really thrive. They report that she is great to work with, very quiet, and gentle. She seemed like a wise old soul during our photo shoot, never putting a foot out of place on a windy, rainy, cold day that had some horses feeling their oats. Her connections report she has no stable vices. They report she has been sound on some old, set ankle osselets. She was stiff from a recent race when we saw her, so we will get a video on our next trip to the track when she can really strut her stuff. We could see her being a good choice for an amateur or someone venturing into the OTTB world to restart with the assistance of a professional. She will be eligible for RRP 2022. She is by Courageous Cat out of Crashing Through, who is by Señor Speedy mare. Courageous Cat is well known for siring great jumpers (his offspring did quite well in jumping disciplines at the recently concluded RRP Mega makeover!).
