Kamelot’s Dancing Ballerina

Foaled: 4/13/91 – 45″
Sire: Michigan’s Mighty Mike
Dam: Bar G’s Flash Dancer

ASPC Classic Shetland mare Kamelot's Dancing Ballerina, our very first shetland and the dam of our shetland girls.

ASPC Kamelot’s Dancing Ballerina

We fell in love with this mare the very first time we saw her as a 2 year old filly. At that time, we knew nothing about Shetland Ponies but she was just too beautiful to resist! We purchased her and brought her home and just started playing with her. Eventually, we showed her in halter classes, showmanship classes, and broke her to drive. Our youngest son, Ethan, rode her in Lead-line 6 years and under. We had so much fun showing her! She was always at the top of her class and she always wanted to please you and show for you. We retired her from the show ring in 1996 and in 1997 we bred her to Raven of Bird Haven, ASPC Superior Sire, the leading sire at Wilkinson Pony Farm, Grand Island, Nebraska. “Blu” didn’t disappoint us – she produced an awesome bay and white filly, Outlaw’s Raven’s Dancing Beauty, that we added to our show string for the 2001 season. We repeated the breeding again in 1999 and in 2000 she blessed us with a spectacular black and white colt, Outlaw’s Raven’s Dancing NightStar.  Since then Blu has gone on to produce 3 more beautiful fillies for us, all of which have been added to our broodmare band.  Blu was a wonderful introduction to the Classic Shetland Pony – versatile, curious, gentle, faithful, and absolutely beautiful!

Sadly, we lost this mare on January 15, 2016. ‘Blu’ will always hold a very special place in my heart as she was our introduction into the Shetland world. She was fun, full of personality, sweet, faithful, and always my friend. Rest in peace dear friend. I will miss you.

ASPC Outlaw’s Raven’s Dancing Beauty

“Beauty” is the very first ASPC foal that we raised. All of us, including the owners of the sire, were anxiously awaiting the arrival of this bundle. For some reason our youngest son, Ethan, laid claim to this foal before she was ever born. Ethan was 8 years old at the time and he was really excited about this foal. The first words out of his mouth when he saw her were “Oh, she is beautiful!” and they were said with such reverence. And beautiful she is and that is where her name comes from – Ethan’s own choosing and he picked it well! In her first show  – under 4 judges –  Beauty received 2 Grand Championships and 1 Reserve Grand Championship. WOW! And she was the Area VI Area National Reserve Grand Champion Mare! Since then Beauty has been retired from the show string and started her career as a broodmare. We are very excited about her 2018 foal sired by MO Critical Acclaim EDV – Outlaw’s Speed Diva.

Foaled: 5/28/96 – 44″
Sire: Raven of Bird Haven (Superior Sire)
Dam: Wilk. Pipi Longstocking

This mare also caught our eye and we wanted another beautiful Classic Shetland, so she was purchased and added to our herd. She is totally breathtaking to watch running free in the pasture – tail flying high and legs popping up. ‘Illi’s’ sire, Raven of Bird Haven, is recognized as a Superior Sire in the American Shetland Pony Club. What an awesome feat! We enjoyed showing Illi for a few years but she didn’t enjoy the show ring. So she was retired from the show ring to begin her career as a broodmare. She certainly has not disappointed us in that department! Her first foal, Outlaw’s Just Wanna Lil ‘MO, was kept as a gelding for us to play with and enjoy and he has been so much fun! Since then Illi has gone on to produce 3 beautiful fillies for us, all sired by our herd sire, D&S Tom Collins. We plan to keep all the fillies for our broodmare band. The fillies from this cross, Outlaw’s TC’s No MirageOutlaw’s Tru Picture, and Outlaw’s ‘Til Unveiled, have all been hardshipped into AMHR.  This has been such a fun cross! So far we’ve had 3 different colors from this cross so we are anxious to see what the fillies themselves will produce!

Outlaw’s Catipult’s Blu Moon – 

Foaled: 4/8/03 – 44″
Sire: Town & Country’s Catipult (HOF)
Dam: Kamelot’s Dancing Ballerina (see photo above)

This foal was anxiously waited for and she didn’t disappoint us!

The filly had a brief career as a show mare before she was retired to our broodmare band. Mooney is the dam of Outlaw’s Tara Rose and the granddam of our new Junior Stallion, Outlaw’s Maximum RPM’s. Mooney is a part of our new venture so what for future updates!

Outlaw’s Tap Dancer

Foaled: 5/22/06
Sire: D&S Tom Collins – 34″
Dam: Kamelot’s Dancing Ballerina – 45″

Wow! We were anxious to see what this cross brought us and again, we were not disappointed! She has Daddy’s attitude plus looks and her dam was so much fun to show. Timing didn’t allow us to show this filly so she will be added to the broodmare band. She was bred to our Senior Stallion, AE Bey Star, for a 2012 foal and produced a beautiful red & white filly, Outlaw’s Bey Blitz. Tapper was bred to MO Critical Acclaim EDV for a June 2019 foal & gave us a bay colt, Outlaw’s Out for a Spin. We are looking forward to seeing this guy in the driving arena someday!

Outlaw’s Dancin’ A Tune

Foaled: 6/21/08
Sire: D&S Tom Collins (HOF)  34″
Dam: Kamelot’s Dancing Ballerina  45″

‘Tune’ is a solid black filly with a large white star on her forehead. She is a full sister to Outlaw’s Tap Dancer but she shows very different characteristics from her full sister. She has the movement and body type to be shown in today’s Modern Pleasure Division. We decided to add her to our broodmare band and in May, 2015 ‘Tune’ foaled a black filly for us, Outlaw’s ElizaBey Waltz. ‘ Tune’ was bred to MO Critical Acclaim EDV for a May 2019 foal and she gave us a sharp bay filly, Outlaw’s Tune Up. Sadly we lost this filly due to a freak accident but believe me, she could move!

Wow! We were so excited to acquire this filly! Her dam has won many Congress Championships and was truly an amazing sight to see in the performance ring! Dancer was bred to D&S Tom Collins for an April 2015 foal. She gave us a black & white colt, Outlaw’s Tango Kid, and we like what we see! In fact, we repeated the breeding for 2018 & while Ray didn’t get a match for Tango to start a team, we did get an exceptionally nice black filly, Outlaw’s Twist’N’Shout!

Mo Sweet N’ Saucy EDV 

Foaled: 4/5/2006 43 1/4″
Sire: Harbrooks Mo-Mischief
Dam: Sweet Surprize FMF (HOF)

This is a gorgeous mare! We have always loved Elli Verba’s MO babies – their personalities, charisma, and presence definitely make them a contender in the show ring and a great addition to a breeding program. Thank you Elli, Verba Shetlands, for giving us the opportunity to add ‘Lexy’ to our broodmare band! ‘Lexy’ as she’s known to us, was bred to AE Bey Star in 2012 and in May, 2013 she foaled a wildly marked colt, Outlaw’s Bey Mayhem. ‘Hemi’ as he’s known to us, is an awesome colt! He has color, personality, & he can move! We are bred Lexy to our Senior Stallion, D&S Tom Collins, in 2019 and we are looking forward to the arrival of this foal!

 Dragon Fire’s Electric Blue

ASPC Dragon Fire’s Electric Blue

Foaled: 5/22/01  42″
Sire: E’s Pistal Peet
Dam: Georgetown’s Last Chance

This mare was such a find! We delivered a mare to Lynn Bateman, Arabian Echo Miniature Horses, and this mare came home with us. She literally made me catch my breathe the first time I saw her! She has a presence and a beauty about her that is irresistible plus she has a wonderful personality. Honestly, she could be competitive in today’s show ring but we were anxious to add her to our broodmare band. She gave us a beautiful filly, Outlaw’s Twice the Appeal in 2011, sired by our stallion, D&S Tom Collins.  We repeated the breeding again for 2012 but sadly the bay/white pinto colt didn’t make it out of the sac. Her 2013 foal, Outlaw’s Bey Voltage 220, was sired by AE Bey Star and we are just as thrilled with that cross! Thank you Lynn for allowing this beautiful mare to make her home with us!

‘Lucky’  was added to our shetland family in 2000. He is proudly owned by Ray and Ethan. We have enjoyed getting to know Lucky and learning how to handle and show a Modern Shetland. He has a super disposition, is very friendly and loving, and has put up with our amateur status very well! We want to thank RFP Ponies for allowing us to purchase Lucky and for all of their help and encouragement! ‘Lucky’ crossed over the Rainbow Bridge at the age of 20. We loved Lucky and are sorry we never had the opportunity to drive him. We are sure he is having fun now, running and jumping, and being the very curious, sweet pony he was. We miss you Lucky.
