Dessia had been very aware of Penzhina in the
area ever since she purchased Hennessy. Knowing
that the potential was there to produce some
awesome horses along the line of Amber Satin,
she talked to Leslie Lloyd off and on about her
and admired her foals by Amurath Baikal.
was bred by Jerry Vanier and brought to Canada
by Joyce Coons in 1988 as a 7 year old in foal
to First Class. Prior to this Penzhina had had 3
foals, one by Strike and 2 by Medalion.
carried one foal by Three-B Rashiek for Joyce
who then sold her to Leslie Lloyd who bred her
to Amurath Baikal for 4 foals. The oldest of
these is Aaristocat who is excelling in
Endurance & Competitive Trail.

by one of the best known and loved Russian
stallions imported to the US, *Muscat.

US and Canadian National Stallion Championship
Leslie made Dessia an offer she
couldn't refuse and Penzhina came to AES to be
bred to Hennessy. The resulting colt is
everything expected and shows lots of promise as
a performance horse.
Penzhina is a very sweet
mare, she is now 23 years old and pregnant with
a foal by Ibn Bee. She has been used in the
lesson program since she weaned Farley last
summer (2003) and is several of the kids'
favorite mount - especially Holly's!
