Monico is a sweetheart, always wanting a kiss even when she is pregnant. When we saw Monico on her Stone Brook Farm's listing, we we enthralled with her 2010 white female cria, Mandolin, by Bruxo's Legolastone for her impressive coverage and density.

From Stone Brook Farm's listing: "Saber’s Monico is an exceptional female with fantastic coverage of light locks and luster from her nose to her toes. Monico is a daughter of Peruvian Saber (Grandson of Accoyo Baron) and Windrider’s Zoe [and the 2010 Futurity Reserve Herdsire of the Year]. Monico’s dam, Windrider’s Zoe, is a solid female with fantastic regrowth and coverage... Monico's sire, Meadowgate Peruvian Saber, is a rich medium brown male with fantastic luster and locks. His density and coverage is supurb. Saber has a fantastic head that he is putting on his cria. Saber has a fantastic pedigree that includes Accoyo Baron and Sergeant Major Jax."

Monico came to our farm with a small, lightly draining hole on the bottom of her jaw. She is the opposite of skinny being above average in weight on a well-developed frame. Monico didn't breed for us that first year, due to a combination of weather/timing and our seasonal breeding schedule. At our vet's advice we gave antibiotics and just watched her drainage hole since surgeries are so dangerous and she has never had issues keeping weight on. In the last several years there hasn't really been anything to watch and in the last few years she's been closed up. As far as we can tell she doesn't have any jaw or teeth issue

Her first cria for us was a brilliant and fine light fawn male we named Firefall. He has kept his fineness and locking well into his maturity! The next year we tried to breed her to a colored herdsire from the Northwest, but we lost the cria at its birth -- a terrible loss of a beautiful light brown well-covered and locked male. Later, Monico surprised us with a beautiful light brown female that we named Caught By Surprise! We thought she had not taken based on spit testing. She did a great job managing her pregnancy and was a great mom to her locky little girl! This girl has a lovely greasy feel, tight little locks, and a wonderful luster!
