Pusher's Misty Lady

The Pusher C.G. x Generator's YaYa

June 15, 1993 - April 19, 2010
Pusher's Misty Lady is our awesome black sabino 1993 Pusher mare. She was purchased for her overall outstanding quality - she has everything one should look for in a broodmare, including pedigree, proven genes, and an outstanding production record. 

Misty has bloodlines that are highly sought after in the breeding world today. Sired by WGC The Pusher, her dam is by Prides Generator, and her second dam is by WGC Ebony Masterpiece. These three stallions are arguably three of the very most influential sires of our breed today, particularly when they are crossed with each other. 

Although never shown herself, Misty is the only full sister to the great Kodachrome, one of The Pusher's most famous sons. Kodachrome was a great padded show horse, winning prestigious titles at most major show cases, including a Reserve World Championship in Fine Harness at the Celebration. Kodachrome went on from there to secure his place in the history of the breed by producing numerous World and World Grand Champions in every division.

Not unlike her brother, Misty has already lived up to her family's expectations. She is the dam of the well-known, 3X WC, 3X RWC, Yao Ming, despite having produced just four foals.

On March 26, 2010, Misty foaled a gorgeous chestnut sabino filly by to multi-WC and RWGC Insomnia, who has enjoyed a stellar show career and is already producing show horses although he only has 14 foals registered to his name. Insomnia is sired by Prides Generator, so not only is Misty's new filly by him a 3/4 sister to WC Yao Ming (Yao Ming's sire is Gen's Armed and Dangerous, who is also by Prides Generator), but she has identical breeding to Ambien, Insomnia's most famous offspring. Ambien is out of a mare who is by Pusher Busting Loose (by The Pusher) and out of a Generator mare who is out of an Ebony mare. With the parents' production records and the close relations to famous siblings this foal will have, we are understandably excited about this filly! She has the bloodlines to be a fabulous prospect for show or breeding.

We had planned on breeding Misty back to Gen's Armed and Dangerous for a full sibling to 3X WC Yao Ming, and were just about a week away from the breeding, when we lost this outstanding mare for unknown reasons. She was in perfect health on the evening of April 18 when we brought her in from the field and took care of her, and the next morning, she was gone.

The filly she left behind is to be the last sibling of the great Yao Ming, and the last foal out of Kodachrome's only sister. She is also the closest to a full sibling Yao Ming will ever have, being a 3/4 sister to the 3X World Champion. We have decided that, due to this filly's rare, never to be found again pedigree, stunning conformation, and flashy color, she will not be offered for sale but will remain here to be a potential broodmare. We have hopes that she will follow in the footsteps of her wonderful mother and produce many champions in the years to come.
