In 1993 or 4 Chantal Gauthier
saw Charlie at a Quebec horse show and decided
to breed her lovely grey mare, Follie, to him.
In exchange, Mary was to receive the next foal,
then send Follie back to St-Foy in foal once
Follie came by her nick name
when Chantal went to an auction not planning to
purchase anything, but fell right in love with
Follie's big liquid eyes and just had to
"rescue" her. She called her her
'Folly", but with the French accent is
pronounced slightly different. Follie had a
great fear of men, especially in baseball caps
and they spent many months overcoming some of
her fears. Follie was an excellent school horse
for Chantal for her intermediate riders.
Follie first produced a lovely grey gelding
for Chantal, then a stunning grey colt, Ibn Ibn
Bee, for Mary. The next foal by Charlie was an
even more incredible filly, Jalousie de Toscanne
- yet another grey!
Ibn Ibn Bee has been the only one shown so
far and he was named Most Classic several times
as well as Eastern Canadian Breeder's Champion
Top 6 as both a 2 and 3 year old.
Due to financial issues
plus having her lovely daughter, Chantal offered
Follie back to Mary as a brood mare. Mary jumped
at this generous offer and Follie came to Maple
Lane for good in 2001.
In 2003 she gave Mary a
handsome BLACK colt, Bee's Black Magic, which
Chantal has purchased. Mary
leased Follie to Dessia for a 2004 foal by
Hennessy, a look alike black/grey filly of her
Follie is confirmed in foal to Al Hanifa Andohmi for a
2005 filly (fingers crossed).
