Peony von Falkenhorst

Back in 2005 I bought a snow cap filly by Pegasus from Gwen Gregorio of Gestutet Falkenhorst . That filly called Peony von Falkenhorst, has developed into a lovely young mare. In 2008 we started Peony under saddle, and we also bred her to Don Principe, Don Prince is a black Hannoverian stallion belonging to Marydell Farms. Don Principe’s sire is the legendary Donnerhall and he is out of a mare by Prince Thatch (TB). Visit Don Prince’s website;

With Don Principe’s lovely movement and super temperament, this is going to to be one super foal.  Don Prince has had a number of fantastic babies, so watch out for this one! This ones gonna have spots since Peony is a snowcap.

Peony is no slouch under saddle herself.  Started over the Winter by Pam Spearing, Peony is ridden 3 times a week by April Reedy, and shows all kinds of talent as a dressage horse herself.

It is always hard to decide whether to ride or breed these super young mares, which is the way it should be for a broodmare. after all, in that baby you are going to get half of her genes, so it had better be genes that you want to ride.

Peony is due to foal in March 2009, we can’t wait to see what kind of baby she and Don Prince produce.


  1. Wow, Peony has quite unique marks.
