Her name says it ALL!! SFF's Sweetness in a lovely 2 y.o. 3/4 Hackney Horse, 1/4 Clydesdale filly that is a light, bright bay with 3 whites socks and a blaze. She is sometimes overlooked by the visitors to my pasture full of her bling and bedazzled siblings but that is their loss and your gain?!
This is a quality filly with an understated elegance and presence. Her dam is one of those once in a lifetime mares. One of the really good ones that are wise, honest, kind, generous and then some. Sweetness is not only a more refined spitting image of her Mother but she possesses those same hard to find characteristics. She is a beautiful blend of her parents and we couldn't be more pleased.
Sweetness was bred to excel in a variety of disciplines - Eventing or Dressage, Coaching or Combined Driving, Jumper or Field Hunter- the choice is your's and and she will take you far no matter her job?! ....We see her in the Hunt Field but she would really make a lovely driving partner as well.
As with all our horses, Sweetness, has received extensive groundwork and has excellent manners. She leads, loads, stands tied, LOVES baths (she will hunt you down for a spay when it's hot), and is good for the farrier and vet. She has also been desensitized to a wide variety of things, including: dogs, goats, chickens, assorted other farm animals, traffic, heavy equipment, tarps, flags, and children, to name a few.
Her training will continue in a manner respectful of her age and size. Sweetness has been crawled all over and is comfortably carrying a saddle. We will add some walking around with a rider just to get her used to the idea but that will be the extent of her "being ridden" for awhile. She has been ponied down the road and is currently being ground driven/long-lined around the property. We do our best to ready our youngsters for their new lives and strive to make each transition from newbie to partner as easy as possible- for all involved.
We bragged in an other ad on her brother, Thunderstruck, and how easy he has been to start but we have to admit that Sweetness is right there with him in terms of being straight forward and easy to train. Horses like these two make us look GOOD?! This filly is another Steadfast Farm prospect with an Amateur friendly personality!

*Please excuse the video quality! Due to the rain we have been getting the round pen and smaller paddocks are deep and slippery so we made the best of it?! (The older mare in the footage is NOT for sale.)*
