Monico is a sweetheart, always wanting a kiss even when she is pregnant. When we saw Monico on her Stone Brook Farm's listing, we we enthralled with her 2010 white female cria by Bruxo's Legolastone for her impressive coverage and density. Knowing what she could produce, we jumped at the chance to bring her into our herd.

From Stone Brook Farm's listing: "Saber’s Monico is an exceptional female with fantastic coverage of light locks and luster from her nose to her toes. Monico is a daughter of Peruvian Saber (Grandson of Accoyo Baron) and Windrider’s Zoe [and the 2010 Futurity Reserve Herdsire of the Year]. Monico’s dam, Windrider’s Zoe, is a solid female with fantastic regrowth and coverage... Monico's sire, Meadowgate Peruvian Saber, is a rich medium brown male with fantastic luster and locks. His density and coverage is supurb. Saber has a fantastic head that he is putting on his cria. Saber has a fantastic pedigree that includes Accoyo Baron and Sergeant Major Jax."

Monico came to our farm with a small, lightly draining hole on the bottom of her jaw. She does not have any weight loss and in fact is well developed, leaning toward the 6/10 in body score. Monico didn't breed for us that first year, due to a combination of weather, timing / our breeding schedule, and a desire to watch her to make sure she didn't have any issues with her jaw. She has never gotten 'lumpy' jaw, showing no change in her jaw over the years (even when given an antibiotic treatment to see if would completely resolve it). Our vet did not recommend the often very risky jaw surgery route if she is doing well, which she is, so we just check it periodically to make sure she has no changes.

Her first cria for us was a brilliant and fine light fawn male we named Firefall (after the legendary waterfall that glows like fire in certain sunsets). He has kept his fineness and locking well into his maturity! The next year we tried to breed her to a colored herdsire from the Northwest, but we lost the cria at its birth -- a terrible loss of a beautiful light brown well-covered and locked male.

Well, this year Monico surprised us with a beautiful light brown female! We thought she had not taken in last year's breeding based on behavior testing but she did a great job managing her pregnancy and has been a great mom to her locky little girl! This girl has a lovely greasy feel, tight little locks, and a wonderful luster!
