Slick By Design X Smoke N Sunshine

Sunny D is destined for greatness! Slick is making a massive showing as a sire in the futurity world and you won’t find a much more accomplished dam (see more on dam below). Sunny D is a quiet, kind, in-your-pocket kind of filly with excellent ground manners. Started under saddle June 2020. She has been ridden in the arena, out in the open spaces, and down a dirt road with traffic. No buck and no spooking. Sunny D would fit best with a rider who has soft hands and a quiet body, as she is extremely sensitive to cues.

Below are videos of her on 4/3/2021 after a two-month break:

She’s only 3 years old and gentle enough to ride with a child. Sunny D and Grant Video. Athletic, willing, kind, and eager to please.

Sunny D is paid in full to Future Fortunes, PESI, and Tomorrow’s Legends. She is also current in payments for Pink Buckle Futurity and Ruby Buckle. Other eligibilities include: Royal Crown, Blue Collar Breeders, Colorado Classic, Cowboy State Stallion Incentive, Select Stallion Stakes, Triple Crown 100, VGBRA, and Western Fortunes.

Price: $45,000. Call 307-399-2107. Located and in ongoing training in Loveland, CO.
