Willow Way Fashion
Monty of Woodland x Willow Way Carmen (x Torrs Quicksilver)
Fashion (pictured as a yearling) was shown successfully on halter before taking the position of the wheel in our 2009 Six. This six placed 3rd in the World Champion class at the Calgary Stampede, a great accomplishment in an open class of all breeds.
This big 18+ hand mare has an excellent producing mother line and Fashion has followed suit in producing two perfect marked colts for us. She has a very floaty gait, a trait in most Monty of Woodland offspring, which she has passed to her progeny - both colts are very natural, excellent moving prospects.
Fashion foaled her first filly in 2015, a bay roan with a ton of character & quality by Zoom. She is bred back to Zoom for 2016.

Selma was purchased in December of 2012 at the Westerdale reduction sale. She easily wears a 10.5" front shoe, her neat & tidy pastern completes the package, making her the most extreme bottomed mare we've ever seen. This combined with her action, presence & pedigree made her an easy pick at the sale.
She was shown in 2013 and received the "Best of Show" title at the Central Alberta Draft Horse Classic. Selma was also named the All-Canadian Yeld mare in 2013.
Selma is in foal to Kelso for 2016.
Although the circumstances were unfortunate, we were honoured to be given the opportunity to purchase Pearl along with Caitlyn from the Westerdale breeding program. They have incredible depth of pedigree, with Pearl being a daughter of the great C.I.E. Perfection & Caitlyn a granddaughter who was out of a great line of mares - her granddam Westerdale Sweet Melody was out of the imported horses Doura Sweet Bloom & Bardrill Strathmore. They are both fine examples of the Westerdale program, complete with Dale's trademark of superb bottoms.
We are looking forward to the future with these 2 incredible mares, they will be adding that much more quality to our mare herd.
- Pearl foaled out twin fillies sired by Bacardi in May of 2014 much to our surprise. What should have been a disaster turned into a 2-for-1 deal. For more information on "The Twins" click here. Pearl was given the next year off from foaling, and is now in foal to Willow Way Nightlight for 2016.
- Caitlyn had a big, drafty Kelso filly in 2015. She is bred to Deighton Zoom for 2016.

Jade had a nice colt by Calico Great Galaxy in 2015 & is bred to Kelso fo 2016.
