Establo Picasso - our main herd sire
Lacey finally foaled out a beautiful, super tiny filly by Establo Picasso! She is so tiny, she can walk right under Lacey (who is only 34" tall). Introducing Angel! (Click on name to go to her page!)
We started our little herd in 2013. We did our research for a year prior to purchasing the horses and travelled across North America to find the best suited to our vision.
The Vision: Our main focus in the breeding program is for the B sized miniature horses (maturing at 34" and up) .
We will strive to breed for sound minds, sound bodies and above average movement. Our target market is for small equine driving horses that will do well in CDE (Combined Driving) and VSE (Very Small) driving events.
Secondary is for Halter-type horses that will do well in sanctioned AMHR/ASPC shows.
Most of our horses have American Shetland Pony in them or not far back in their pedigree. We will most likely breed for the more Classic/Foundation-type horse/pony.

Silver being ground driven by our trainer, Katrina Joose. We purchased Silver from Katrina two years ago Really looking forward to driving him around all the forest trails here this summer!
Storm took on the show ring the summer of 2015. In just two shows, she placed top 3 in all her classes! We could not be happier with how she's turning out! Thanks to Katrina Joose, she is getting exposure to the show ring and is growing into a beautiful filly! She now became the Reserve Champion in yearling fillies, 34" and under - Solid Coloured, with the Canadian All Star Awards! She also placed in the top ten in 34" yearling filly Canadian All Star Awards! She has matured very nicely over the winter. She has filled out and she will start her show conditioning.
Treasure and Thunder both had Picasso fillies in May, 2016! We are very happy with what we are seeing! I think we are off to a great start with our breeding program!
Willow has been exposed to Picasso for April foal; 04-22-2017 WILLOW IS GETTING CLOSE! CHECK BACK FOR FOAL ANNOUNCEMENTS SOON!
04-22-2017 RYDER IS OFF TO HIS NEW HOME IN NOVA SCOTIA. He leaves tomorrow. Hoping he fullfills their dreams for their breeding program.
Bucky will start his driving training this year and we will be needing another harness and cart for Mike. Bucky is his horse...at least that is what he tells me.
We are not offering Picasso for stud services this year and we are going to take a break from breeding and concentrate on showing next year.
