Millie and Kirsten, 1997

She has an outstanding temperament, loves attention and is totally people-oriented. Millie always needs to know what's going on and her curiosity often leads her astray, although she'll deny it if she's caught!

Millie's paternal grandsire, Aladdin, won the 1988 ACPS Hall of Fame An Tostal Award, given to a stallion used to promote Connemaras.

Her paternal granddam, Far Above's Katherine, won the 1991 ACPS Hall of Fame Broodmare Award, while her maternal granddam, *Rose of Rosabhil won the same award in 2011.
