"My visit to
I am glad to read you are doing better. I thought you might enjoy some recent photos of Eza Vita, who just turned 19 months. I love this mare, she is calm, intelligent, talented, friendly, inquisitive, enjoys being handled and worked with..... She now stands 15.2 behind, and I am sure she will be about 16.2H. Very early on she understood simple voice commands, stand, back, come, walk, trot, halt, and she responds very well to a gentle signal and a gentle correction. I take her up to the ring a few days a week for just a few minutes and we do some mental games, then go for a little walk together down my dirt road. Sometimes we work free in the ring-which is just a blast since she will walk and trot with me and comes each time I call her. One photo shows her leaving the ring with me free. I will keep you updated, I am so looking forward to riding her..

Here is Adonis at 5 years old and getting more gorgeous by the day. Work has started back up in earnest. Expect to see us in the show ring this summer.
Registration just about complete. Waiting on DNA sample to return. Adonis SSF will now finally be a credit to your breeding program.
Hi Scot and Carroll, I hope this finds you well with new babies
arriving! Ezzie turned 1 year old last week and I thought you would
enjoy seeing some pics of my beautiful girl! She is now 14.2 H at the
withers and 15H+ at the quarters. She is very quiet, intelligent and
affectionate. Now loves the under neck muscles rubbed. She will come
up to me when she is out and just sigh and put her neck close for a
rub! She has cross tied since 4 months, leads, does slight lungeing,
easily follows body commands and comes when called. She loves to jump
the big log I have in the paddock, so once my ring is completely
thawed and I going to bring her up free with some small jumps. If I
can I will send some pictures. Take care, Peg

Donatelli x Kirona by Volkmar
After a year in Virginia, Adonis is growing up in Pennsylvania. Everyone says he is the quietest, friendliest colt they've met. Many, many thanks Scott
Hi Scot--thought you'd enjoy a couple pictures I took of Zirona today, now
This is WendyDaula SSF and she is out of Pioendaula and by Rafurstinels.
I just love Ziroko! Ever since he came to my farm he has been the center of attention, and he is especially gentle and friendly toward children. He has been unbelievably easy to train; I only have to teach him something once and then he consistently responds without ever putting up a fight. He is calm, down- to-earth, easygoing, and reasonable, and he constantly amazes me because he is so brave and courageous. He has been an absolute pleasure to train and I look foward to our future together.
Flying Colors Farm in Tallahassee, FL is thrilled to have their newest addition! A PINTO STUD COLT by Voltaire!!! He was bred last year via frozen semen to Colormarks, a lovely 16.3 bay pinto mare by the Oldenburg stallion, Hallmark. She is 3/4 TB and placed 2nd in her class at the International Hunter Futurity. She was just judged premium at the RHSPI inspection in Florida last summer.
This filly will be 2 in June, she is a registered Dutch WB named "Wregalia", and is just under 16 hands. She is out of TB mare "Veronica Slew"( Can't Be Slew/Seattle Slew ) and her sire is Dutch WB "Zeoliet". "Regal" has a sweet personality, follows me all over the pasture, and is in my pocket, she also LOVES to jump!! Thanks to "Shooting Star Farm", for being willing to sell me some of their limited supply of frozen semen, that was available after Zeoliets' unfortunate death.......

Willioso, a Shootingstar farm baby, is the most wonderfully level headed baby. Before bringing him home I wondered how he would do at my farm, a riding academy, where people come and make many mistakes. I can't believe how well minded this horse is. At not even two yet he is not only even tempered, but the kids can lead him about, he is funny, gentle, and quiet. He learns so quickly, and doesn't over react to minor issues, and then I watch him move around the pasture with the athletic grace and movement of his family. What a great combination. Thanks Scot! You have the talent for breeding, we are so lucky to have you and your horses in NH! Heidi
Here is a collage of some of the pictures I?ve taken through the last three years of Urona SSF (Metall x Volckmar). It has been an amazing experience raising this horse, one simply too great to put any price on despite any trials or tribulations we have had to face over the years. Urona has always been a horse unto her own, a true character from the beginning whom I have watched grow from a goofy foal with a knack for sleeping in all manner of places to an elegant and solid mare. Her strength, intelligence, determination, even out-right dominant attitude make it exciting to continue our saddle training come this spring. It has always amazed me the level of trust this little horse puts in me, being my first young horse I?ve had a lot of learning to do and Urona has certainly been more than tolerant of me. She has allowed me to get us lost us lost in hay fields, followed me boldly onto trailers (tarps, through mud-puddles, woods, and across ice laden fields), and has even allowed me to use her as a make-shift cloths rack from time to time. She is quick to understand and tries to over-please once she figures out what I want, more than once she?s gone sliding on snow pack feet in perfect imitation of a reining horse while trying to stop quickly enough for me. Above all she is a horse that ?fits? me just right and is simply a joy to watch, and we look to a bright and hopefully long future. So thank you Scot for a wonderful equine partner, and indirectly a wealth of memories and experiences."
I first met the Tolmans on a rainy, early spring day
Here are pictures of the two babies we purchased from Scot and Carol, both of which we are delighted with. Valileo "Leo" (Iroko x Hilton) is turning out to be a beautiful, balanced horse who has already been through several months of training with Joe Forest. He will turn three in the spring and I am so excited to start riding him. He has already shown great talent for jumping (leaping in and out of every fence we put up), and I am hoping he shows the same potential for dressage! This fall, I fell in love with another of Scot's babies (of course, I always want to take them all home!). Zirona (Freestyle x Volckmar) just seemed too special to pass up. She has a super sweet and laid back personality, and hopefully will live up to an anticipated dressage future. Many thanks to Scot and his family for producing such quality sport horses.
"I live near enough to Scot Tolman to have become a regular visitor. Scot is a wealth of information, and if you can keep up with him doing his many chores, you are treated to a rich buffet of ideas and observations on many aspects of horse care and breeding - particularly helpful to me as I began breeding. Scot is extraordinary - doing everything in his power to get two difficult mares pregnant - and succeeding! Here are pictures of my lovely Iroko foal out of an Irish sport horse mare. I've got another Iroko on the way this spring out of an Oldenberg mare. Scot, you are just the best! All of my thanks come with this letter! "
"My husband and I first saw Veo SSF (Zeoliet x Oladaula) as a 3 month old. From the moment we saw him move, we were in love and had to have him. I had scoured the earth for the perfect dressage prospect and had seen many lovely horses, but neither Mike nor I could sleep after seeing Freddy. We bought him the next day and brought him home as a weanling a few months later. He is now 2 1/2 and we couldn't be happier. In addition to being gorgeous and a spectacular mover, he has the most wonderful, easy-going temperament. He is a total love and extremely smart. His trainer calls him a true "pleaser". We look forward to having him as a partner for the next 20-plus years and feel so lucky to have met Scot, his wonderful family and all their fantastic horses.
This is a picture of my wonderful mare and Iroko foal. Scot was "the Man" He took care of the breeding of this mare, and I cannot thank him enough. Nobody would have taken better care of her.I will be forever greatful. The filly is absolutely stunning. Personality and a mover. I am a lucky person to have run into Scot.
all the best,
I couldn't be any happier with Pejuta (LaVita x Ichnaz), he is amazing. I fell in love with LaVita the first day I saw her. I knew I had to have her first baby. That was in April of 1996 and Pejuta was born in May of 1997. I'm hoping the next one is a filly!
