Flamboyance of Genesis

AHR Registration Number: 33318-15
USDF Registration: 1158337
USEF Registration: 5847511

Breeder: John & Michele Dunkel, Genesis Farm

We excitedly welcomed “Flame” home in January 2023. She is sired by the AHR Gold Classified and 3-time AHR National Champion, Alfa of Genesis, and out of the AHR Gold Classified and 2-time AHR National Champion, Faith by Fire DAF. Her breeding was the result of crossing the two highest rated horses in the AHR Inspection and Classification program, and this exceptional young mare is everything you’d expect from that match.

Flamboyance: n. the quality of being bright, colorful, and very noticeable; the tendency to attract attention

Flame was shown very successfully by Genesis Farm in 2015 at the AHR Futurity, winning her Weanling Pleasure Filly class before ultimately being named Junior Weanling Pleasure Champion. She went on to earn Reserve Champion in the highly competitive SIP class. She continued to impress in hand throughout her early career, taking third place with Erwin Slabaugh in her Yearling Filly Class, as well as a remarkable third place in the acclaimed HBC Yearling Futurity, followed up by finishing top two in the Two-Year-Old Filly class in 2017. Purchased by Twin Birch Farms only a few months prior, Flame finished 3rd in the 3-Year-Old Mare class at the 2018 AHR National Show at Kentucky Horse Park, before beginning her career under saddle. At the 2019 Central Ohio Haflinger Show, Twin Birch Farms’ rider Elizabeth Murphy showed Flame in dressage and hunter classes, garnering impressive wins over fences and scores over 70% at Training Level.

Royally bred, expertly trained, and – most importantly – as sweet as can be, we’re thrilled to add Flame to our herd.

Some of Flame’s show results include:

  • 2018 AHR National Show 3 Year Old Mare – Third Place
  • 2017 AHR Futurity Two-Year Old Filly – Reserve Champion
  • 2016 HBC Breeders Co-Op Jackpot – Third Place
  • 2015 AHR Pleasure SIP – Reserve Champion
  • 2015 AHR Junior Weanling Pleasure – Champion

In 2021, Flame had her first foal, an exceptional colt sired by the AHR Gold Classified Wrendition of Genesis. As a weanling, Wrenaissance Man YES placed 1st in the 3 & ↓ Stallions class at the AHA International Haflinger Celebration, and then went on to be named Reserve Champion Stallion. At the 2021 HBC Futurity, Wren placed 3rd in the inaugural Weanling class, and then earned the 2021 Stallion Gelding Reserve Champion neck sash. In 2022, he placed 2nd in the Yearling Colt class at the AHR Futurity, and finished Top 10 in the competitive HBC Yearling Futurity.

This outstanding gelding is currently available for sale – contact Twin Birch Farms.
