Sassafras is the last foal Eagleview Skybeau (aka Calypso) will carry herself. We count our blessings that Calypso was able to carry this beautiful filly full term. I have not wanted to part with this beautiful girl. She is the last of this breeding – and the only Cortez x Calypso filly.
Sassy has all those wonderful attributes of her Dam and Sire that we love … sound mind, intelligence and athleticism beyond her years, sweet nature and the ‘look’ and temperament that we love. Sassafras appears to be taking after her older, smokey black, siblings and will be over 15hh.
Sassafras has exactly the same colour genetics as her three older brothers who are also smokey black – homozygous black with one cream gene – EE aa Crn.
Good sense must over-ride my desire to keep this beautiful girl. However, her home will have to be one where she can excel as a riding horse. Sassafras has so much to give as an athlete, it would not be fair to deprive her of the opportunity to display her talents before she is put to the task of producing babies.
The description of the Sassafras Tree:-
‘Sassafras is one of the wild treasures of North America. Legend has it that the windborne fragrance of the trees enabled Columbus to persuade his mutinous crew that land was near, and the herb is still one of the spicier delights to be found on a walk in the woods.
Sassafras is versatile. While the wood is light and strong, it is soft and easily worked. The leaves, bark, fruit and roots of the sassafras are used for many varied medicinal purposes.’
