Tosca came to us as an older mare who was passionate about life.  She was resilient and devoted.  We loved her and she touched the lives of so many. We believe that she is one of the highest quality red mares on the continent, on so many levels.   Not one creature on earth could resist but to fall in love with her.  

Two days after her 23rd birthday, and 2 years in making, our one and only beautiful red mare MH Tosca gave birth to an incredible red Smedsmo filly.  Sunnyside Smedsmo’s Talene was truly born with diamonds on the soles of her feet!  Initiating as an older mare who had suffered neglect and starvation, Sunnyside brought Tosca back and gave her a chance at making a new life.  We’re so thankful to her for giving us Talene.

It didn’t come with ease and we faced many hurdles.  With dedication, devotion, passion, perseverance, care and love, we truly learned that there is a guiding light, and that the very themes from which Sunnyside has been built are indeed true.   We’re fortunate to have Tosca’s little red legacy living through Talene.

We were blessed to have had the opportunity to love and be loved by Tosca for the last years of her life  She was a colossal cornerstone to our therapy program and a light of our lives.  Rest in peace, lovely mare, spread your unicorn wings and fly far and wide, bringing a smile to every soul in the heavens.
