He's SUPREME again!

Here are a couple of new pictures of Alliance Piano Man taken at the May 2006 show in Okeechobee, Florida.  Piano Man got a Supreme Champion award with Joe Lyon (of Critter Creek) showing him in Amateur Level 1 Jr. Stallions.  He also swept the Multi Color class and got a Reserve Grand in Open Junior Stallions!  Thanks to Jess Coffey for taking these photos of Piano Man.  Piano Man is co-owned by Mini Eagle Miniatures and Critter Creek!

 

Alliance Piano Man

Pictured above and below are new pictures of Alliance Piano Man (co-owned by Mini Eagle Miniatures and Critter Creek!).  These pictures were taken in April 2006.  We think he is maturing nicely... :-)  Watch for Piano Man at the 2006 World Show with Alliance Miniatures!

 

 

 

 

 

 

There's a NEW SPOTTY in town!

 

Sweetwaters Texas Spotty is a 4 year old buckskin leopard appaloosa stallion that we have added to our incredible stallion line up.  Spotty is pictured above after basically just being pulled from the pasture.  How many mature stallions do you see that are naturally this fit and trim?  We are thrilled to have Spotty and have selected our very best mares to cross on him this year.  Rita's mom, Bad Bad and Legend's mom, Charm and Princess's mom, and Christy and Charisma's mom are all being bred to Spotty this year.  WOW!  We know these crosses have the potential to produce some incredible appaloosa show babies.  Thank you to Patty Wilhoite for sharing Spotty with us!

 

 

Our 2006 foals are arriving!  Pictured below is CCMF Crystal Carousel (aka Christy).  Christy is a filly by Carousel Designer Legacy that we are keeping to show and for the future.  Further down is a leopard colt from this year named CCMF Ramblin Royale.  Check our Foals page to see some of our other beautiful foals!

 

Pictured below is CCMF Ramblin Royale, a 2006 leopard colt out of a Rowdy/Ramblin Starbuck retired show mare and sired by Mountain Highs White Cloud, our 30" appaloosa stallion.  Ramblin Royale is very upright, has a beautiful head and short back and long refined legs!  He is AMHA/AMHR registration pending and is being offered for sale.  E-mail ginny_long@yahoo.com for more information on Ramblin Royale.  

SOLD!

CCMF Ramblin Rita is SUPREME!

Introducing CCMF Champagne Delight!  Our first foal of the year has arrived.  Foaling season has officially begun and what a way to start... with a champagne appaloosa filly.  This beautiful filly already has a new home and when she's weaned she will be heading off to Utah to live with Lori Lancaster of Magic Mist Miniature Horses.  Lori already owns CCMF Spotted Illusion, a two year old leopard appaloosa colt and this new filly CCMF Champagne Delight will be joining Lori's herd of beautiful horses... :-)  Congratulations Lori!

CCMF Clouds Charisma - Rowdy/EK/Orion bred appaloosa mare

CCMF Clouds Charisma is a truly beautiful appaloosa mare with heavy appaloosa breeding on the bottom and top of her pedigree.  Her pedigree also includes Rowdy, Egyptian King, Orion Light Vant Huttenest, Mountain Highs White Cloud and Flabys El Tigre.  Charisma will be bred to either CCMF I'm All That or Alliance Sign On The Dotted Line in 06.  Either cross has the potential to produce a beautiful appaloosa show baby with an incredible pedigree.

Below is a baby picture of Charisma

 

CCMF CAROUSEL PRINCESS - WOW!

 

When Princess was born we mistakenly thought she was a colt (it happens... LOL) and about an hour after she was born we realized she was a filly and we jumped up and down with joy!  She was so leggy and refined with a beautiful long neck and dainty little head.  Her sire is Carousel Designer Legacy and her dam is a National Champion Driving horse producer.  This filly is already an AMHA World Top 10 winner (7th of 21 beautiful fillies) and has been retained for our show string and later for our breeding program.  You can see pictures of Princess taken at the 2005 World Show farther down on this page.  Thank you to Donna Lavery for convincing us to take Princess to the 2005 World Show and for believing in her.  Princess is a maternal sister to CCMF Enchanted Charm and a paternal sister to CCMF Legacys Legend, CCMF Legacys Color Maker, CCMF Legacys Ruby Red and CCMF Legacys Ebony Design.  Princess was a Supreme Halter Champion at her very first show!

Princess is pictured below as a baby.

 

Pictured below is a 3 year old mare named CCMF Legacys Ruby Red (by Carousel Designer Legacy!) and Jess Coffey showing at the 2005 Mini O Rama show. We think Jess and Ruby look fabulous!!!

Introducing - Mountain Meadows Just A Tease!

We at Critter Creek are pleased to announce our newest addition: Mountain Meadows Just A Tease (aka Tess)!  Tess was bred by Stacy Score of Mountain Meadows Miniatures and Tess has an impeccable pedigree with a strong dose of halter and driving champions in her immediate background.  Her sire is Celebrations Legacy Royale, an AMHA World Reserve Grand Champion Senior Stallion in Open Halter and his sire is Charles Legacy Royale who is also a World Reserve Grand Champion Senior Stallion in Open Halter.  .  

Not to be outdone, Tess's dam is a daughter of Stacy's driving machine, the many times World Grand Champion driving stallion Century Farms Bey Masquerade.  And Tess definitely got a good dose of her sire's spunky attitude.  Tess will be a part of our show string for the next few years and then will be a welcome addition to our brood mares.  We will have updated pictures and video of Tess on our website as her show career progresses.  A huge thank you to Stacy Score of Mountain Meadows Miniatures for trusting us with Tess... :-)

READ BELOW TO FIND OUT ABOUT ALLIANCE PIANO MAN AND ALLIANCE SIGN ON THE DOTTED LINE!

 

 

ALLIANCE PIANO MAN

Grosshill Boogermans Fine Line X HSF Serendipity

(sired by a National Grand Champion Jr Stallion and out of a double Orion bred mare)

Co-owned with Debbie Foster

For several years we have searched worldwide for the perfect colt or stallion to add to our herd to cross on our Goldstrike, Legacy and Cloud daughters.  We wanted a horse that was exceptional in ways that most appaloosas are not, and we believe we have found what we were looking for at Alliance Miniatures.  We found not one, but two exceptional appaloosa stallions at Alliance and both have something to offer our breeding program.  So we now are now the proud owners of Alliance Piano Man (pictured above) whom we co-own with Debbie Foster, and we are also co-owners of Alliance Sign On The Dotted Line with Alliance Miniatures and Debbie Foster.

ALLIANCE SIGN ON THE DOTTED LINE

Grosshill Boogermans Fine Line X NFC Egyptian Kings Stardust

(sired by a National Grand Champion Jr Stallion and out of a Reserve National Grand Champion Mare)

Co-owned with Alliance Miniatures and Debbie Foster

 

We are extremely grateful to Terry and Mike Hlavatovic for breeding such beautiful horses and for allowing us to have the privilege of co- owning Piano with our good friend Debbie Foster and co-owning Dotted with Alliance and Debbie Foster.   We believe with careful planning and strategic crosses of these stallions on our incredible mares that we will truly have a World Class breeding program producing appaloosas that CAN compete with the best non apps out there.  

 

 

Click on the Alliance logo below to visit Alliance Miniatures Website.  Mike and Terry Hlavatovic are responsible for breeding Piano Man and Dotted Line... wow!

 

CCMF Chasing the Dream - 2004 leopard colt.  His dam has the prettiest head on our farm and Chase inherited it.  What a looker!  Chase is owned by Tracey and her family at Country Lane Miniatures in Canada!  

 

BAD BAD is an AMHA WORLD TOP 5 CHAMPION and EASTERN CHAMPIONSIP SHOW RESERVE CHAMPION!

CCMF I'M ALL THAT (aka Bad Bad) is our awesome little 2004 snowcap appaloosa colt.  His barn name is Bad Bad because he has such a bad boy attitude with the other weanies!  Bad Bad went to the 2004 Eastern Championship Show and won Reserve Champion Weanling Stallion in a class of 11.  He also went to the 2004 AMHA  World Championship Show and was World Top 5 (4th!) in the Open Weanling Stallion class.  We are extremely proud of Bad Bad... :-)

 CCMF Willows Whisper - 2004 blanketed filly!  WOW, we love this filly!  She has Gold Melody Boy and Little Kings Napolean (lots of trot!) in her background.  We're hoping that someday she can be an AOTE driving mare for us.  Only time will tell!

 

CCMF Enchanted Charm - 2004 leopard appaloosa filly

Charm is a 2004 filly we have retained for our breeding program.  Watch for Charm at the shows!  She is just breathtaking.
