Fallen Ash Scouts Oscar x

Lucy is simply pretty pretty pretty! Big goal to get decent photos! Lucy has a beautiful head, tight throatlatch and great conformation - my horrid photography skills leave much to be desired!

Lucy has been tested for the D2 Dwarf gene as her dam's result indicated she was positive for this dwarf trait D2. We were thrilled that Lucy is negative for all known ACAN dwarf genes, as her sire is negative and her dam is negative for D1, D3 and D4.
So, Lucy cannot pass the known ACAN dwarf genes to her foals!



We do call Lucy 'Snake-bite' when we're teasing her, only because she was our first victim to a rattlesnake bite at four months old. She ended up spending time at UCD in ICU (where she caught the flu and had an extended stay in isolation - another story!), but she's been fine since then. We're hoping her natural curiousity will at least stay away from snakes, but seeing how she likes to try to bite the cat's tail, we're wondering if she's be Lucy scar-face or Lucy one-eye! She can't seem to help herselif.

Lucy on th left post snake bite. On the right, at UC Davis right before getting a tracheotomy so she could breathe. You can see how swollen she was. She was bit right near her right nostril.

Our Breeding Philosophy


Wesco Farms has an unconventional breeding philosophy, in that we like a short foaling season (April foals ideally for our climate), and have chosen to NOT breed mares every year.

Our preference, is to put stallions to mares around May 1 and take them out May 31st for those April foals. Our stallions get a brief window - maybe one-two heat cycles depending on the mare. We're fine with a less than ideal cover rate, as we've dealt wit winter, summer and fall foals, April is our sweet spot!. We just don't want people to "assume" mares are at fault for what appears to be a sketchy foaling history as many mares do not get bred for a couple or three years depending on life circumstances; stallions chosen for that year; etc. AND rarely, do we breed a mare back after foaling.

We're including individual mare's breeding history below.
Please contact us! with any further questions or clarifications!


Lucy's breeding history:

  • 2019. Pasture bred to First Knights Wizard of Oz for an April 2020 foal. Not bred.
  • 2020. Open. We're not breeding in 2020.
  • 2021. Planned possible re-breed to First Knight Wizard of Oz.
