Xqwisit Curly Sporthorses

Lejonhud's Nokwisi

Kwis left side 12-2006.jpg

affectionately referred to as
is simply a sweet mare willing to do
whatever is asked of her

May 22, 2001
A striking palomino
with soft crushed velvety curls all winter
She keeps her mane and tail year round
During the spring months she will shed her curls
and keep a gorgeous wave of shimmer
Kwis has recently been used mostly as
a brood mare
producing two extreme fillies for us

Xqwisit Diva Eivissa

Prior to coming to our Big Sky Ranch
Kwis was bred by
Betsy Lirakis
Top O' The Hill Farm in Vermont
by her stunning palomino stallion
Colonel Reuben
out of her chestnut mare
Honeybee Gal
She was purchased and raised by
Susan Lejonhud of Maine
where she was raised as a
family horse, trail horse and 4H horse.
Due to her calm, easy going demeanor
she is a horse we are very comfortable putting
first time riders on
(under close supervision, of course!)

Kwis is bonding exceptionally well with
our teen age "second son"
and "year round helper"
(don't know what we would do without him!:~)
Chadd had no experience with horses
prior to coming to the Ranch,
and is learning not only to ride,
but how to create a trusting relationship with
the horses.
You can see how
the two of them are forming a great bond!
Just look at how relaxed they are...

We hope to see them continue this lasting rapport and
compete in a few distant rides
and perhaps
a local show or two this summer
