Welcome to the site featuring Gail's Holsteiner


    She was foaled March 30, 1991 in Aroda, VA, and is a registered American Holsteiner!  I never thought I could afford a German warmblood, but I found her April 7, 2000 at the Thurmont, MD Horse Auction.  Other than being smaller than most of my horses--15.3h, she was nicely built and a lovely mover, so I knew she would make a nice broodmare.  She is a calm well mannered mare, and I have had no problems with her, but then I am not asking her to do anything other than to be a horse! Her bonits are listed here.
    After a few hours searching the net, I located "Future," an affordable, 17.2h Holsteiner stallion [now 18h] and made arrangements for her to be bred by artificial insemination.  AI was a totally new experience for me, requiring coordination and cooperation between the stallion owner, the vet, Northwest Airlines, my boss, and of course Thomas and myself.  Did I mention the mare? Our first attempt was successful--the May 13, 2000, ultrasound showed an embryo, so she conceived either April 28 or 29, 2000 when the AI was done.
She has a lovely head
