Martys Fortune ~ "Fortune"
"Fortune" was one of our cornerstone broodmares and had been with us since we started the Double Diamond D! She was just a powerhouse of speed and muscle! Kind and gentle, she was a fantastic mother to all of her babies. Standing 16 hands and having a strong racing pedigree, she passed this speed and agility on to all of her babies. Now saying “speed” may scare some folks, but this mare had such a gracefulness about her: she was just plain elegant when she ran across the pasture! It was like "flying without wings" as the Drivers said! She was a beautiful mare and is sadly missed. She had a traumatic injury to her right back leg in the Summer of 2007 and sadly had to be put to rest. Fortune: May you have greener pastures and lots of sunshine dear friend! Your treasured legacy in your babies lives on.
