DOCS GLORIOUS GENIE
In the summer of 2008, Genie was purchased by a family from western Canada, who drove all the way to Missouri to pick her up. We hope she is doing well north of the border.

What a sweetheart!
Genie wants to please, and she was having fun on this trail ride in August 2005, after only about a dozen rides ever. She never did anything wrong on this ride - led the group of three horses, followed behind, stopped and stood nicely, didn't hardly fuss when she had to wait behind for a while. At this point she was still just a baby and had very little experience, but had a willing disposition.
Since then, Genie has had about two months of professional arena training, and now takes her leads, moves off the rider's legs, pivots and sidepasses. She has some additional trail riding experience.
Genie is gorgeous, with a beautiful head and near-perfect dun-factor (big dorsal stripe, zebra stripes on the legs, and minimal white markings). She's a pale cream color, a sharp contrast to her black mane and tail, but her mane complements the cream with a light frosting of white hair.
Color breeder's dream. Anyone looking for a future brood mare should look twice. We haven't tested her, but Genie is almost surely homozygous for black legs. And since her daddy carries the cream gene that produces buckskins and palominos, there is a chance that she inherited that as well, hidden under the dun markings. To top it off, she's a Doc Clabber granddaughter, with a cutting horse build - a wide chest and well-muscled rear end. Genie is double registered with AQHA and ABRA (American Buckskin Registry Association.)
