DIAMOND S SAS

 

Sas standing at the porch waiting for someone to come outside and "catch" her. We leave her out there for hours, not tied, she just waits for anyone to come play. She follows everyone around, she is our version of a dog. She stands in the garage with my dad while he repairs things using air tools, hammers and she could not be bothered, she is just happy to be with him. She did poop in the garage once, Dad was not happy about that. Thank god it only happened once in all the times she has been in there. We were all a bit surprised when she strolled in there for the first time on her own with all the noise. Sometimes you can hear my dad when we are outside within hearing distance of the garage, "Sas do not touch that, stop touching that, you are going to hurt yourself, you're going to have to leave if you keep touching that". I do offer to remove her he always respond "no, she is not hurting anything".

She is a black mare, with a few white hairs. Standing at 17.2HH's and still growing. I am guessing she will make 17.3HH, roughly 1900lbs when full grown.

Sas is very curious. Constantly picking things up and carrying stuff away. Which dad does not like when she leaves the garage with tools hanging out of her mouth. This girl will do anything you ask of her.

She weight's approximately 1800lbs, very drafty. She came to us from a breeder is Wisconsin. I purchased her by a picture, I did not have the time to go see her. I took a big chance on her purchase. Never once have I regretted it. She was smaller when she arrived, and seems to be growing over night.

She is the perfect example of the Clydesdale breed, with very calm disposition, willing attitude, and incredible conformation.

She is broke to ride. The picture to the right shows me getting ready to dismount gently, it was her first ride under saddle. With my daughter holding the lead. 

She is still young and sometimes goofy on her huge feet. She has finally figured out how to stop quickly without falling.

 

She is very playful, loves to play dodge'em. A little scary playing a game like that with a 1600lb animal. SAS plays hide and seek also. She can seek and hide, she can be very amusing. We actually could not find her once for about 1/2 an hour. She was standing down a path around a corner, she blended right in.

Finally we surrendered, a little nervous she may have disappeared, called her name and she popped out, very embarrassing when you can not find something that big. Came trotting down the path, head high as if she knew she had beaten us. 

When we are out on the 4 wheeler she is right behind you, we must have 1000 acres of wooded trails behind our farm, no matter what speed you go, or where you go, she sticks with you. She loves to follow the lawn mower too.

She is an all around amazing horse. She will be a permanent fixture on our farm. She has won over everyone's heart.

Sas was nominated All-American at 6 months old. We have been considering continuing her show career.

 

When people come to pick their berries and if Sas is around, she is there to greet them. Some people have no idea what to do or what to think. Especially when she is trying to take things from there hands.

Once they realize she is in no way a threat, they are taken by her. Can not keep there hands off of her and she eats up the attention.

There was a little old woman, she was a little hesitant to get out of her car due to Sas running over to see who was here. She got out of her car, with a little help from us, holding 2 plastic bags, my family assisted her to pick strawberries. She held one bag. While my family helped fill the first for her, she was standing with Sas while Sas tried to steal her plastic bag. I offered to move Sas in fear Sas may hurt her, not intentionally but she is a fragile old woman, it did make me a little nervous. The woman replied firmly "leave her" She played tug of war with Sas, or Sas stood quietly beside her and like a sneak, quickly tried to snatch it from her. She comes back multiple times every year, with friends and family members, and first thing she asks, "where is the big black horse". Now she brings her treats, and always brings plastic bags. We offered her a solid container, she refuses on account Sas likes the plastic bags. She did come by last year when it was out of season for strawberries, she brought a older woman with her that was ill with cancer. She wanted to introduce the woman to Sas. We gladly assisted her.

Sas is sometimes not available, she is doing her own thing, or she is not on the farm, depending on what is going on.

Sas has never been de-spooked, this is her natural behavior. She loves everyone, men, woman, and children.

Nothing like walking through a strawberry patch with a Clydesdale by your side on her own free will, to assist you.  

 

 

Sas has matured into a wonderful horse, She had her first foal on 9-2-09. She is a great mom. The plan is for her next foal to be sired by Mousse.
