COUGHLIN’S NIKI PHOENIX PLUNTON
Niki is a daughter of the late SBH Phoenix out of a Thistle Ridge Argyll Enhancer mare.
She is a broodmare deluxe with size, color, feather, and plenty of foot.
She is started under saddle, she will continue riding training. The video above is her first day actually having to work under saddle. She was broke to drive years ago and certainly retained some info.
We have owned her for many years and are offering her for consideration for someone else to take advantage of her genetics to produce more show clydesdales.
If we have had success with her, why are we offering her??
Well... we are moving more and more away from the show world and focusing on our tour business... quite honestly, her foals have had too much attitude, drive and spunk for what we use our horses for. We have sold all of her offspring to show homes.
Her first foal, Sandy Acres Blazin Dice was champion foal at wisconsin state fair and showed well for us as a foal and yearling. She continued her show career and most recently finished well at the 2018 world show in bred and owned cart placing 9th out of a large class as well as 4th in junior team.
Her second foal was Sandy Acres King of Spades, who we showed only a few times and was 5th at the 2018 World Show in halter. He was s..d as a stallion prospect.
Her most recent foal was Sandy Acres Calamity Jane who made a very short appearance at MGLI for the foal spectacular placing 3rd in that class. She now resides with the Mann family and entered in the 2021 National Futurity Cart class.
There is no doubt Niki will put some exciting offspring on the ground.
She is strong willed which is passed on and makes for exciting show horses.
We are currently in the process of breeding her to our stallion Freedom Royal Venture and if offered bred, her value will increase from $7,500 to $10,000
At this price, a steal from what the horses brought at the National Clydesdale Sale.
Niki is a very quick foaler. She generally reaches just shy of 365 days but when her water breaks, she is fast and has delivered without assistance. Her foals are quick to stand and nurse and she is a mare we have froze colostrum from for use on other mares.
