Firefly is a lovely, gentle mare who has a wonderful trainable temperament and a willingness to please. Along with her sturdy conformation, Firefly is one of only a handful of true black silvers in Western Australia and she has some interesting bloodlines: both parents were rescued from herds in outback stations in WA and she has heritage bloodlines from very well bred and hardy old type horses and ponies. Firefly is registered with Dilutes Australia.
Firefly had a gorgeous black silver filly foal by Powderbark Cavanagh (Connemara) who is also offered for sale. Firefly was an excellent mother who carried and reared her foal well, and she is willing and gentle to handle.
Firefly was started under saddle, but has not been ridden for several years because of her previous owner’s illness. She is currently for sale as a broodmare (which is reflected in her price), however she could easily return to her ridden career. The reason Firefly is for sale is because the Stud is no longer breeding pony-sized partbred Connemaras.
