Wesco Farms Rogers Easter Bonnet

33" Buckskin Mare

Sire: Samis Roger Rabbit x Dam: B ZS Starry Night

Samis Roger Rabbit x


Bonnie was born here on Easter Sunday while I was away at a horse show. Her dam comes from the driving horse lines of BZ's Ranch and go back to the Shetland bred Dunnings and Hashs. Her sire, Samis Roger Rabbit, and shares the same great movement of his well known driving siblings - Samis Quo Vadis and Rocket Squirrel.

Bonnie is a super mom, very devoted to her babies and protective although not aggressive. She is not the friendliest horse on the place (definitely not a pocket pet, but is food motivated!). Having had her dam here, she learned that "Don't trust humans" from Starry Night who had a history of neglect and was left pretty hands off most of her life.

Bonnie is easy to handle - once caught - and does well with the farrier, grooming, etc. She just doesn't seek out human interaction. We're okay with that. Bonnie is not an 'alpha' type mare - she might be given the opportunity, but here she's more at the lower end of dominance with our herd.

Bonnie was tested for the ACAN Dwarf genes in July 2020. She is N/N for all four known types (D1, D2, D3 & D4). That means she cannot pass dwarf genetics and her foals have inherited her NN from her.


Bonnie produced three foals for her former owner and produced this lovely pinto filly in 2017 for us

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!
