Texas Tornado SSH
ApHCC # 41923
foaled April 30, 2001
This big black roan Appaloosa filly was bred to rein or work a cow. She stands 15 hands and weighs 1000 lbs as a two yr old so should finish around 15'3. She is sky eyed (not blue eyes, rather eyes with a slight upward tilt) and would be a 100% color producer, same as a snowcap (her sire All `Round Texas) or a few spot (dam's sire High Sign Nugget). This filly goes back four generations before you find that one of her eight great grandparents was a solid Appaloosa. The other seven were all colored. She will will produce 100% Appaloosa color or characteristics when bred to any stallion. A real benefit given the new CPO rules.
As a two yr old, Tori was ready to start this fall. I lunged her twice, ponied her once and then stepped into the saddle. Tori took everything in stride with no fussing. We had a nice little wander through the pasture.
Tori is confirmed in foal to Rein Dancer SSH for a 2005 foal and is on her way to London, England to live with her new family at their stud farm bordering on the Epping Forest. Congratulations Mandy on acquiring such a happy and easy going mare. We look forward hearing about her show career, as well as her new foal.
Her sire, All `Round Texas, is Cdn Nat Ch and two time Alberta Champion Stock Horse of the Year with Championships in Reining, Roping, Cutting and Working Cow Horse.
Her dam, Eyes High Falutin' , is Canadian High Point Champion Working Cow Horse by High Sign Nugget, multiple world champion, and out of a double bred Dial Good mare. Her dam's full brother was one of the high selling horses at the 2001 World Show sale. "Tori" earned her name at playing in her coral by spinning in circles. A real whirlwind, she plants a hind foot and works off her hind end already!
Tori's 1999 full sister, Salutin Texas a black roan filly had several months professional reining training and was considered exceptional. As a result we have moved her into the broodmare band. She naturally works off her hind end and has the spark necessary for reining without being too aggressive.
Tori's 2002 full
brother, Luke N Back Texas, is a BIG black
snowcap stallion prospect who has been sold. His new home is in Texas and his
owner's intention is to have him trained in cutting when he is old enough to
start under saddle.
Tori's 2003 full
brother, Austin Texas, is another big black colt
with a blanket over his hips who is listed on our sales page.
