2011 Breed: Palouse X Height: 12.0hh (est.) Colour: Black Sire: Gunnadorrah Tom Thumb (Black Silver Pony) Dam: Jennellerine Celebration (Palouse/Caspian) Registration: APPA pending Pedigree
Rumpelstiltskin is Gunnadorrah Tom Thumb’s last foal, and Jennellerine Celebration’s first foal. Tom and Celia were so much in love with each other that we decided to let Tom serve Celia against our better judgement because he was two hands taller. From the one service Celia went straight into foal and not long after that Tom died.
Rumpelstiltskin is everything such a miraculous foal should be: he has elegance and presence and is bold and energetic, thinking nothing of bossing his sisters around, even though they are twice his size.
It is difficult to identify Rumpelstiltskin’s future colour: he will probably colour up as a palouse like Celia but he might also develop a mature black silver coat like Tommy. We have decided to geld Rumpelstiltskin as we believe he will make a phenomenal leading rein / first ridden pony in the future. Rumpelstiltskin is named for the “little man” in the folk tale with the same name who was unscrupulous but could spin straw into gold. We anticipate that Rumpelstiltskin will have a golden future in whatever role lies ahead for him.
