Welcome to Gum Drop, home of champion [and rare] ponies!!! All of my ponies will be listed on these pages, including the rare Highland stallion Amazed and the
even rarer Xerxes and Sabbath Storm, Caspian stallions. Other rare breeds harbored here are the Criollo, Chincoteague, New Forest, Argentinian Poly Pony, British Spotted, and the Haflinger.
Go meet all the ponies, and check out the foals in the front pasture!! View our Mission Statement, too.
GDPS is a traditional British pony farm--located in Massachusetts, USA. Victorian
stables complete with tall spires and curving banisters are all part of the landscape. It is
actually a renovated inn, previously known as Queen Elizabeth’s Own. The inn house
has been totally redone to hold guest quarters and the living space of the owner.
The small number of ponies kept here has helped greatly in regards to space. There is
a thousand acres to the estate, but most of that is conservation land where only trails can
be maintained. The barns themselves are kept on 50 acres of well-spaced land. Corrals
and storage sheds take up another 100 acres. All in all, there is plenty of land for the
place to grow, but a small number of ponies keeps the traditional method alive.
Sir Edward deLuc, the head horsemaster and main trainer at the farm, has stated that
this setting is the most relaxing and promising method of training younger ponies. The training of
all our foals starts at birth, with accepting the halter. Learning is associated with treats and
pats, making the younger (and older) ponies come to their stall door or pasture gate whenever
they hear the jingle of their halter!
Silver dapple was thought to be a rare color, but those specialists have never come to
Gum Drop!! Silver dapple is our specialty, and we show off the best of the best at every
Xerxes, Tabriz, Sabbath Storm, Macy Gray, Rum Tumbler, The Thong Song, Taillefer,
Calliope, Kokiri, Gray Area, Thong and Dance, Black Sabbath, and Julian, thirteen of the
fourteen Caspian ponies in the game, also reside here as well. Two of the mares foal each year,
increasing the population both at GDPS and gamewide.
Our Highlands are also rare breeds in this game. GDPS is currently housing 21 Highlands,
which are the only Highland ponies in Hoof Prints, and Morning Light and Quartz Crystal are
expecting foals next year. I will keep you posted!
Harboring rare breeds seems to be a specialty. Our blossoming Criollo project has
expanded from two show horses all the way up to twenty-nine, with our original horses still
showing! As Yet Unknown, Like Gold Refined, and Ginger Ice (who was welcomed back after being traded),
Haflingers, are rare breeds too. But do not be fooled. We also house some of the most common
pony breeds in HP--such as the Welsh. Rockaround Twizzler, a champion Welsh stallion, has
unlimited possibilities. He is an advanced eventer and has also competed successfully in jumper.
He is up for stud, inquire if interested! We also stand the pioneer polo pony, Woodland's
With the moving of all my Miniatures to Nothing Gold Can Stay Stables, the place is much more uniform...no tiny ponies running here and there! The stallions are also much more at ease...they were a bit rolly-eyed at those hock-high mares!
THIS IS NOT REAL. THIS IS PART OF A SIM GAME, HOOF PRINTS.
