VT StillThymeToPass, “Sage,” is a sleek 2019 gray AQHA appendix filly sired by Amber Pass, an AQHA ROM earner in several hunter disciplines.... (read more) She’s out of Blues Stiletto, a daughter of NSBA Hall of Fame stallion, Skys Blue Boy, who has sired 260 World and Reserve World Champions. Sage has a diverse pedigree suitable for a variety of disciplines. Sage has worked closely with her student trainer in the Equine Youngstock Training and Marketing course to successfully encounter new objects and complete necessary skills, such as lunging at the walk and trot, standing tied, and picking up feet. Her calm demeanor makes her a pleasure to train especially when introducing new concepts. By sale time, we expect her to additionally carry a bit and saddle, stand for bathing, and load into a stock trailer. Sage is up to date on all routine health care and has no known health issues. The following paperwork will be provided in her sale portfolio: original AQHA registration, transfer of ownership form, health record with vaccine, deworming and farrier records for the past year, current Coggins, and a health certificate if traveling out of state lines.
