Macintosh, out of Apple, was our youngest ’08 Hustler foal. Sometimes overshadowed by his older paternal brothers and sisters he is now coming into his own. He has, without a doubt, the prettiest head and ears on a Gypsy I have ever seen. He is also what we call a “pocket pony”, one who would be content being in your pocket all of the time, just like his mom Apple. Mac got very sick in early 2009 and we almost lost him. Once healthy, we had intended to geld him but despite being behind in growth, when Tom Price visited in July ’09 he suggested that we “run Mac on” for another year as a stallion prospect. Whether he will of will not make a stallion we still do not know but Tom’s eye is much more experienced than ours and Mac is definitely coming on. His ’09 full sister SSFR Anna, also named for a variety of apple, demonstrates what we now see as the quality of this cross. Watch for Macintosh in the show ring. 7/10
