"I really like that pony" - I said that every time I saw him show.  I never in my wildest
dreams ever imagined I would someday own him!  From the first foal that hit the ground
we knew we had something special on our hands.  His first foal crop produced Plattes
Undeniably Royal who was named ASPC Shetland Congress Modern Country Pleasure
Driving Stake Champion "Under" in 2011.  His second foal crop produced Plattes
Unparalleled (HOF) and the multiple time All Star Champion mare Plattes Unrepenting.  We
offer a limited number of outside breedings to Willowlawn's Mr. Unique (HOF) each year.

A fellow breeder passed away and when given the opportunity to acquire a few of her
mares that I admired I jumped at it.  I didn't know I'd also end up bringing home a
stallion, and not just any stallion, but a stallion who had achieved his AMHR Hall of
Fame in Country Pleasure Driving and has a laundry list of Top 10 placings at AMHR
Nationals. We are thrilled to add this small, refined, spectacularly bred stallion to our
line up!  
SOLD! Watch for our final Adonis foals in 2018.

Barn Name: Triffic

"You bought your stallion's full brother?" "What?" "Why?"  Yes, I fielded a lot of
questions when people started to discover I'd purchased Triffic! As always, there was a
method to my apparent madness. Unlike Unique, Triffic will pasture breed, giving me
other options for hard to catch in heat or silent heat mares. Then there is the fact that
he is absolutely gorgeous and though they are full brothers, Unique favors their dam in
looks and Triffic favors their sire. It's the best of both worlds!

We have several foals expected from Triffic in 2018.
Barn Name: Sharky
Foaled: 5/19/02
Color: Black Tobiano
Reg: ASPC 151204A - Foundation Certified ~ AMHR 230533B
Sire: ZJ's Windwalker (The most Awarded Superior Sire in ASPC *AND* AMHR
history)
Dam: BHR Marsha (HOF Superior Dam in ASPC *AND* AMHR)
Height: 39.5" / 37.75"

It was an opportunity no sane person would pass up, the opportunity to add
one of Jolie Cheval Farm's multiple HOF producing, multiple Congress
Champion producing, and multiple AMHR National Champion producing sires
to our stallion line up. We will be using Sharky for the first time in 2018 and
are beyond excited to see what he produces with our ASPC/AMHR mares.

For those of you who wonder about his name - Sharky gets both his barn
name and registered name from the shark shaped white marking on his right
side.  No, he doesn't bite. LOL  In fact, he's one of the sweetest stallions
you'll ever meet!
