RHA Taffy Valentine 

    ASPC/AMHR 

SIRE

In 2010 on our way home from a local show where we had seen Buckeye WCF Hot Hot Hanna showing we stopped in to visit Getitia at Buckeye.   There was another beautiful buckskin pinto filly, Dynamics 1 Hot Valentine, bred by Getitia's Daughter-in-law, Christina Melton, and she was for sale!  She was linebred King Lee and stunning. Valentine was not AMHR registered at the time and this was prior to us showing at ASPC Congress, so it took a few years before Valentine was given the chance to shine in the ring, but at the 2013 Congress she was named Congress Senior Champion Foundation Mare.

Valentine then joined the breeding program at RHA where her foals proved to be some of the most consistent we have ever bred.  Every foal has had Valentine's stunning head with huge eyes, forward ears and strong jaw.  They all have her beautiful hooked neck that is set far back on their shoulders and of course her "just enough white" to be flashy. 

Valentine's first foal, RHA Unique Infatuation, was named Congress and National Champion and has already produced a National Res. Champion. Her second foal, RHA Unique Temptress, was also Congress Champion and National Res. Champion. Her third foal, RHA Trou Dangerous Mood, her first colt, has been named National Champion multiple times and was the 2019 National Champion Get of Sire! Proving the same consistency and potency as his dam. Valentine's fourth foal, RHA Trou Lee Toddy, bears a striking resemblance to Hot Toddy and was named after him.  Toddy also was named National and Congress Champion. Valentine's latest foal, RHA Unique Obsession, was named Congress Champion and National Champion and we have retained her for our breeding program at RHA.

We are very excited for Valentine's 2020 foal sired by TSH The Chrome Factor "E".
