This is a cross I'd planned since I purchased Pippi as a weanling in
August of 2000. I knew her movement, temperament and pedigree
were the perfect complement for Splash. The result? A total
knockout in all respects...conformation, movement, jumping ability, temperament and the all-important pony character. Spike was
simply the best of both of his Supreme Champion parents and more. He was totally sweet, lovable and fearless. Pictures DID NOT
do him justice! He was the spitting image of his sire except for coat color and grew into an equally stunning boy. Liseter bloodlines
have a tendency to mature slowly, but when they do, they'll take your breath away!
Spike was destined for glory, but do to unexplained, chronic health issues, it wasn't to be. He definitely had the attitude for the show
ring. Both Pippi and Splash have won countless Championships in halter. Pippi's dam was a member of one of the late JD Orear's
favorite draft driving teams and also a halter Champion. Splash is a grandson of Liseter Carnelian and Liseter Gladness, who
each produced many halter and pony hunter Champions on the East Coast. His winning bloodlines, combined with his huge stride,
unflappable disposition and willing temperament, would have made Spike hard to beat in any discipline. He was a moving machine!
