Canterbury Exquisitely Framed “Fame"
"Exquisitely Framed" is the perfect name for this ultra-refined and awesome mare. Her beauty, as well as her grace, have been a welcomed addition to our broodmare herd. Fame is a classic frame overo pattern, who also carries the sabino overo pinto gene. Her sire, Willow Creeks Sparks and Fire, is a blue eyed palomino overo pinto who is providing all of the white pinto patterns on Fame. Spark's sire, NXS Merlenes Zip Strip, has driving horses in his blood with the Diamond JS Friday Buttons and the Kays line. Additionally his pedigree includes Flying W Farms Masterpiece, who sired 74 foals including National Grand and Reserve Champions, and also traces to the National Grand Champion, Bond Sir Galahad. Spark's dam, Sugar Creeks Sparkling Sapphire, also a blue eyed palomino, is a Bond Famas Amos daughter, and traces back to Gold Melody Boy, Roan Ranger, and the Great Bond Showboy. Fame's dam, Delight, a solid black mare, is pure Shady acres on her sire's side, and Still R and Lil Ponderosa on her dams. Fame's beauty is matched by her great conformation, lovely movement, and a wonderful "pocket pet" personality. She is a perfect package that we are glad we have. Bred by Nancy and Don Richey, Fame joins two other spectacular Canterbury Farms horses we own, our herd sire Canterbury All That Jazz, and our broodmare Canterbury My Fair Lady.
She has been tested and is positive for the Frame (LWO) and Sabino (SB1) overo pinto genes, Red/ Black (Ee); and negative for the Splashed White (SW-1), and Cream (cr) genes.
