4/20'/14 Japanette and her string of BHF descendants

4/20/14  It's springtime, which means it's also foaling time.  This post celebrates some of those special mares who were in the American Saddlebred Broodmare Hall of Fame.  This particular group of mares all stem from Japanette, who was foaled in 1902.  She was the beginning of a string of five generations of mares that all entered the BHF, plus she had several other granddaughters and great granddaughters who were BHF, but not from that unbroken string.  There is only one string of six continuous BHF broodmares that I can think of, so five in a row is pretty amazing.  Here are these mares, with some of their famous sons and daughters listed.

Each generation is indented and at the bottom are some links for other posts which contain more pictures and info on these particular horses.  The generations are also labeled one thru five with Japanette being "1" and Sparkling Delights being generation "5".  The unbroken chain of BHF are marked with an **.
