All of a Sudden - 2017, Sooty Buckskin Shire Sport Horse Gelding
2017 Shire Sport Horse colt - "Oliver" registered name is All of a Sudden. We cannot determine his color yet as he was born buckskin but will likely darken to bay or black. He has a big splash of white on his face and four high white socks. He is oh-so-friendly and gong to be a show stopper.
Dam: Buttercup is the sweetest, most friendly mare in the world. She will come right up to you for attention anywhere! She was used in the mountains when she was younger and will let anyone climb all over her. Buttercup is a stunning mare with impeccable confirmation. I fell in love with her when I first saw her. I cannot wait to see what she will produce from this cross. Buttercup is broke and was a nice riding horse but due to an injury, she is being used for a broodmare.
Sire: Sudden is a beautiful jet black Shire stallion. He has a winning disposition - even for an aged stallion, he is kind and gentle. He absolutely loves people and attention. Update 2018 - Sudden passed away. We are lucky to have one last foal by him.!
It looks like he is a buckskin and we are calling him Oliver.
Update September 2019: Oliver spent a few months in Cambridge, Idaho learning the basics - Walk, trot, lope and following cattle. I brought him home and rode him about 10 times. He was amazing. Oliver may have a huge future as a hunter. Oliver had a tune with the trainer, March 2020. He is being prepared for the Billings Horse Sale in Billings, Montana, April 25, 2020. He can be purchased for $7,500 until April 5, 2020. After that, bids must be placed through the sale.
