AN UPDATE ON AVIATA BRIO… WE FOUND HER (and one of her get! Mama Tess’ GrandGelding!)

WE FOUND AVIATA BRIO!

In case you missed it, last week I was pondering where I might find a horse I had bred and raised until she was 4 named, Aviata Brio.  (You can read that story linked here.)

Aviata Brio (Stella) was Mama Tess’ third foal.   I had raised her and sent her into training with Tess’ trainer… She did well – a big girl with a huge Park motor.

Stella sold before we could show her.  She went to a woman who was in the military and just loved owning show horses back home.  I thought it was great that she could be a remote player in this field… and I also knew that she would have steady income and that Brio would always be cared for, fed and honored.

I did hear that the new trainer and Stella didn’t get along… so sad when that happens.  I also heard that they made her into a brood mare instead of a show mare because of her pedigree.  I knew she had 2 foals for her new owner – but then I had lost track of her when she was sold again.

You readers were AWESOME in helping me find her.   I can sure tell that there are some Super Sleuths out there!  (You know who you are! Thank you!)  Not only did we find Brio, but we found on of her foals as well!

Aviata Brio!  We found her in Nevada!

WHERE SHE LIVES!

She lives just a few hours from me in Reno, Nevada!  The woman who owns her was gracious to write back to me.  She said that Brio is a lovely and kind mare who never gave her any issues when riding or on the ground.

I think they tried to breed her but that was unclear.  They did tell me that she was a bit (ahem) overweight.

I gently told her that Mama Tess has the same tendencies to be a bit too curvy… and suggested the few things I know had helped MT.  I didn’t want to overstep here but I did want to warn Stella’s owner about IR and Cushings in Tess.

I also said that Stella would always have a home here if there were any issues in the future.

The new owner thanked me and said that Stella was her favorite mare and that she would send a new photo when she could.

That made me happy.

ONE OF AVIATA BRIO’S BABIES!

So, one of you Super Sleuths found several lovely photo of Brio’s colt,’Hollywood Twenty-Four’.  He is now in the hands of a young trainer in Ohio.  I think they are a great match, judging from the FB page comments!

But first, we found a show photo of Hollywood 24 with Craig Hummel of Vantage Point Stables in Ohio. 

That photos led us to Tiger Eye Performance Horses who have him now… Evidently Hollywood Twenty-Four has shown in several division – Yay!  Diversity keeps the mind fresh!

Here is a note from Hollywood 24’s new owner’s Father:

“Hollywood went third in the grand national 2 year old park class. He showed English pleasure as a 4 year old, hunt at 5, and now actually does reining.”

First we found this photo of Hollywood Twenty-Four.  He showed in the  Park Harness division, just like his Grandma, Mama Tess! But, it ends up he was sold from here...

PHOTO WITH HOLLYWOOD 24’S NEW OWNER AND STABLE GIRLS!

Hollywood 24 (Brio’s son and Mama Tess’ grandgelding) is now at the training stable, Tiger Eye Performance Horses, owned by ‘Tyler’.  I think Tyler is the main trainer’s son, but I’m not sure.

I don't know who this is, but she is showing Hollywood 24 under saddle in English Pleasure. He looks very cute!

I know this photos is Hollywood 24, but I don’t know the rider.   She is showing Hollywood 24 under saddle in English Pleasure. He looks very cute!

I don't know who this is either... but the note under the pic says she is in with Hollywood 24. They both look happy!

I don’t know who this human is either… but the note under the pic says she is in with ‘Hollywood 24′. They both look happy!

THANK YOU, VANTAGE POINT STABLES, HERITAGE FARMS AND TIGER EYE PERFORMANCE HORSES… for taking such good care of MT’s GrandGelding, Hollywood 24!
