Bond Dynamo Image

1979
Measured 30″
Bond Dynamo served as a pivotal link in the legacy of Vern Brewer’s breeding program for a number of years. To this day, his bloodline, especially when crossed on that of Orion-Light Van’t Huttenest, still take their places at the head of the class in the show rings from coast to coast.

Foaled in 1979, Dynamo was an outstanding sire and grandsire early in his career with the renowned Rhoten’s Little Dandy winning National Grand Champion Pleasure Driving Horse in 1987 and went on to be an outstanding champion sire as well. A Dynamo daughter was Reserve National Grand Champion Junior Mare in 1986 (Rhoten’s Thumbelina).

Dynamo was bred by the Bond Miniature Horse Farm and came to my attention when his beautiful daughter, Martin’s Dominique, swept the National Show in 1988, winning National Grand Champion Junior Mare, National Champion Amateur Junior Mare, National Champion Solid Color Mare, and National Champion Two Year Old Mare. She came back the following year as a Senior and won Reserve National Champion 28 to 30″ Mare.

A few months after seeing Dominique win so much, Vern and Betty Brewer, their daughter, Betty Lynne Schneider, and Carol and I were going to the funeral of N. A. Williams’ wife. At this point Vern had had Orion several years and was keeping most of his daughters who were just coming to breeding age. I mentioned to Vern that I didn’t think that he had any stallions that were good enough to cross on those special Orion mares. He said that he had been trying to figure out what to cross them on. He asked, “If you could buy any stallion to use for them, who would it be?” I thought a minute and told him there were two that I thought would be great crosses: Bond Peppy Power and Bond Dynamo. He asked who owned them and I told him that Bob and Sandy Erwin had Peppy and that we were going to be near the other when we got to the funeral because he was owned by Lee and Barbara Martin. Vern said that NFC probably wouldn’t sell Peppy Power, but that he would like to look at Dynamo. When the funeral was over, we talked to Lee and Barbara and asked if we could come by to see their horses on our way back to Texas. They agreed and we made the trip down to the Martins’. There we saw all the horses, but of course, paid special attention to the one that we were really interested in, Bond Dynamo. Lee said that he would sell him, but that he would be pretty high since Dominique had done so well and had sold for around $40,000! I think that he priced him around $100,000. Vern turned it down, but all the way home kept trying to figure out how he could get that horse, agreeing with me that he would be a good cross.

A number of months went by, and I believe that Vern finally bought a package of horses including several Dyamo daughters and one or two horses by Bond Boozer, another of the stallions at the Martins’ at the time. Vern never told me what the deal finally cost, but laughingly said it was a lot.

After joining the ranks of the Brewer Family Miniature Horses, Dynamo continued the winning ways that he had started earlier. Some mentionable, but certainly not a complete list are the following:

Brewer’s Dynamo Topper
1991 National Grand Champion Junior Gelding
1991 National Champion Two-Year Old Gelding

1994 National Champion Senior Mare 32 to 34″

Bond Dynamo is also the grandsire of the only stallion to win the National Grand Champion Stallion title as both a junior and senior stallion up to that time, Winner’s Circle Adonis (pictured below), by Martin’s Dealer’s Choice. We have a Dealer’s Choice daughter, and since we believe in the cross, we currently have two Bond Dynamo daughters and two grandsons in our breeding program.

Bond Sir Galahad Image

1966
Measured 27 1/2″
Sir Galahad was one of the most refined miniature stallions in history. Foaled in 1966, he possessed the qualities that we breed for and seldom get today. He was Mr. Bond’s favorite stallion and held the honor of being pastured in the front yard of their home in Lavonia, Georgia. After Mr. Bond’s death, most of the herd was dispersed at public auction that brought people from coast to coast to bid on the two hundred plus lots. Sir Galahad sold for a remarkable $7,000 in the sale in October of 1992 – remarkable since he was blind and 26 years old!! Purchased by Bob and Janet Lee of Hunt House Farms he was put down in 1997 because of failing health.

The footnote in the catalog shows the importance of the 27 1/2″ sire in the Bond’s breeding program:

“Sire of Champions: Bond Boozer, Bond Apollo, Bond Chauncey, Bond Coppertone, Bond Strut Ur Stuff, Bond Galahad’s Legacy, and Bond Cheerio. Also grandsire of Bond Little Lucy B, National Grand Champion Mare.”

Bond Snippet Image

1982-2007

Sire: Bond Showboy
Dam:Bond Thumbalina

When Kay Pate started showing Bond Snippet she made quite a stir on the Texas show scene. She had bought quite a few Bond horses and claims to have gotten Snippet “thrown in” on a deal for a few show halters! He was in bad shape and had almost been foundered and Mr. Bond thought that he really wasn’t worth much. Kay had been quite successful showing quarter horses for quite sometime and brought that expertise to the miniature area when she started showing Snippet. She proved Mr. Bond wrong in a big way! The previous year I had been very successful showing another Bond horse, Bond Peter Piper, usually winning that size class. When Snippet started showing we placed second to him almost every time, and I must say that I agreed with that placing and so I sold Peter! Snippet was campaigned extremely well for several seasons winning Reserve National Grand Champion Senior Stallion in 1987 and was National Champion Multi Color the previous year.

One of the prettiest headed stallions of the breed, Snippet, passes on quality and show “pizazz” to his offspring, who continue to make their mark. Some of his outstanding get include the following:

Foaled in 1970, the last of his foals was registered in 1984. He is the sire of Bond Miss Rie, who was the Reserve National Grand Champion Mare in 1984. Miss Rie’s daughter, Bond Little Lucy B, went on to be National Champion Mare 30″ and Under in 1986 and National Grand Champion Senior Mare in 1987.

Boone

Winner in 1983. The first time I ever saw Boone’s Little Buckeroo I was showing at the State Fair of Texas in 1983. That happened to also be the National Show for the year. I was going to the arena to watch a class and ran into Lowell Boone. I stopped to visit. He was waiting to go into the ring with the most delicate, gorgeous horse that I had ever seen. I had heard about a buckskin colt that he had been showing and that he had won the championship in the 1980 and 1981 national show put on by the International Miniature Horse Registry.

Boone’s Little Buckeroo
All I had heard did not do this little horse justice! Through the years I have seen only a handful of miniature stallions that seemed to be in a class all of their own. Bond Sir Galahad, Prince Tennessee of Monashee, and Boone’s Little Buckeroo – such refinement, small size, and elegance that they seem more like gazelles than horses. Justice can never be done by the camera with a horse like this….beautiful pictures exist, yes, but until you walk up tothem in the flesh you cannot imagine the delicacy that they possess.

Boone’s Little Buckeroo
Sometime later I heard that the Eberths were getting into the miniature horse business in a big way. They had bought a group of mares from Bob Bridges and had talked Lowell into selling Buckeroo to head their breeding program. The rest, as they say, is history.

The following two articles were published in The Miniature Horse May-June, 1997, and are used by permission of the authors who can tell the whole story so much better than I. The dictionary defines “odyssey” as any long journey with many adventures. Buckeroo’s story is truly an odyssey. Click on the article titles below to view the articles.

The Odyssey Begins…
-by Lowell Boone

The Odyssey Continues…
-by Robin and Marianne Eberth

The following was a note that John Eberth posted on a miniature horse discussion board, Lil Beginnings, February 26, 2002, when the discussion turned to Buckeroo.

It has been said that “word of mouth is the best advertising”. Growing up, my family did not spend a million dollars advertising Buckeroo. My mom did not put an ad of Buckeroo in every issue of every magazine printed, like some farms have done to push their stallions to try and make people believe that the stallion is that great. My mom still does not do that. If you spend enough money and say something enough times sooner or later people will believe that blue is purple. However, once the farm is gone or once the stallion has died, did those stallions and their offspring still bring the prices and were they considered great stallions by other well established breeders. Buckeroo is just now seeing the “popularity hype” that some other stallions saw much earlier in the stallions lives. Do those stallions still bring high prices, some do because they actually produce great quality offspring, while others totally were valuable because someone spent a lot of money saying the offspring were great quality.

It has also been said that “the proof is in the offspring”. There are very few stallions that their offspring have value after the stallions are dead or non-productive, pay attention to those bloodlines and where they came from and what horses have those bloodlines now, and the values they have. Pay attention to older established breeders and the broodstock they use and the pedigrees behind those horses, that will tell you what bloodlines are truly valuable. Prepotency is the true test of a great stallion. Grand-get and great-grand get with qualities of a famous stallion show dominant genes that are desired and can still be passed on.

Chianti Image

1964
Grandaddy of the appaloosa miniature!
Foaled in 1964, the leopard appaloosa Chianti was imported to the United States from the Falabella Farm of Argentina for use at the Regina Winery in California in the early 1970s. He was part of the famed Regina Winery Hitch until he was purchased by Dixie Blasingame, who used him in her breeding program at Shadow Oaks until he died. He had forty-eight foals, the last registered in 1983.

Chianti head
The following article appeared in the Miniature Horse World in January of 1983:

Many years ago, the Regina Winery of Southern California imported a small herd of Miniature horses from the Falabella Family in Argentina. Among those horses was a leopard appy stallion that the Winery named Chianti after one of their prized wines.

This truly unusually colored horse became quite an attraction in the Winery. They used him as part of their famous Mini-Winery Wagon Hitch seen in so many Southern California Parades. Chianti was also the sire of the first mini foal born to the Winery herd.

When the Winery closed its doors there were a great many buyers for their mares and Pinto stallions since they were very popular at the time. But only one person could see the potential of this unusual leopard–that person was Dixie Blasingame of Vista, California. She saw what Chianti could become and knew how to bring it out. Under her care and management, Chianti began a show career that brought home many halter and performance champion wins. Chianti’s show ring wins were overshadowed only by his abilities as a sire. With careful planning of breeding, he began to sire foals of exceptional beauty, color, and with performance ability. This is what made Chianti the top producing miniature appaloosa in the world.

He was a magnificent little horse. His size was the only small thing about him. A true “Good will ambassador” for his breed, he had a gentle nature and was a devoted mate and attentive father. He was allowed to live AMONG his mares and foals.

His famous heritage, championship show career, and abilities as a sire made Chianti a living legend.

Those who never saw him will never know how magnificent he really was, for pictures cannot capture his beauty.

To Dixie, who saw the potential of the “little spotted horse” and brought him to prominence in the mini world, “Thank you.”

Those of us who knew and loved Chianti share your sorrow at his passing. We hope that his many foals will carry on… “the legend of Chianti.”

WE LOVED HIM TOO! Rod and Dela Anderson

Delmer Moody & His Trick Miniature Horse, “Apache”

For those of you who were not fortunate enough to be able to attend the 3rd Annual Championship International Miniature Horse Show, you really missed a superb performance by a very highly trained miniature horse, “Apache”. Delmer and his beautiful black and white pinto stallion performed at the start of the show. It was a great display of talent and hard work. In addition, it gave the public some idea of how truly intelligent the miniature horse is and how much fun they can be.

Apache can perform an array of tricks – in fact, he can do just about anything. He sits, lays down, rears, and even bows. Everything performed without even the slightest effort. Delmer has Apache well trained.

Apache looked adorable in his little red show harness as he continued to entertain the audience; his tricks becoming more difficult, Apache showed how easily he could jump a fence and then displayed his talent for balancing by performing on a platform balanced on a fulcrum. A trick that would appear to take considerable training. Apache would begin walking up the platform, pause at the center, then as his weight caused the platform to shift down, he would calmly walk down the other side. The crowd really loved this part of his performance. And, to their delite, Apache repeated this trick more than once.

One could tell from Apache’s prancing and the way he tossed his head, that he was enjoying his audience. Miniature horses do seem to enjoy performing for people.

Delmer says he has other miniatures that are trained. If you would like information on how to teach your miniature tricks, I’m sure Delmer would welcome your calls or letters.

Sire: Sligo Stormy
Dam: Ruth Haynes Moto

One of the most beautiful palomino stallions in AMHA history, Cowboy has been an outstanding sire, passing on his quality and conformation to many of his offspring. Early in his life he spent quite a bit of time as the main herd sire for Arnold Landry, then went to Hunt House Farms until their dispersal. At the dispersal sale he went to Robin’s Nest Miniatures, Mark and Robin Miller, Placerville, California.

Ruthie
His dam, Ruth Haynes Moto was the first National Champion Mare of AMHA. I was privileged to own her for several years, until we sold her to Mellis See of Meridian Miniature Horses where she is living out her retirement years.

We also were fortunate to own Brewer’s Cowboy Classic, who I feel was the most beautiful mare that we ever owned. She was what sold me on Del’s Cowboy, in the first place. Unfortunately she had a problem delivering her first foal and we lost her a few days after losing her foal!

We also had a son of Cowboy, the late Little America’s Rowdy Cowboy.

The picture on the left is one of my favorite pictures of Little Man.

The picture shows how small Little Man really was, as he is straddled by his original owner, Delmer Moody. Del Moody is the breeder or original owner of all the horses that you see with the “Del’s” prefix.

Del’s Little Man
Little Man was one of his favorite stallions and one of the best he had. Vern Brewer bought Little Man in the mid-80s and he lived in Gainesville, Texas, until he died in 1984.

Probably some of his best known are the two National Grand Champions, Contender and Summer’s Mucho Macho. After the birth of Contender, Vern Brewer bought Moonman and he came to Gainesville where he lived the short time until he died.

When I first started showing miniatures, Blue Boy was the rage! He had an absolutely gorgeous head and eye, and was undefeated in his size category. In 1981 he was the Reserve National Champion Senior Stallion, both in AMHA and IMHR. He died around 1986 or ’87 when a power line caught his barn on fire during a storm. It was a huge loss to the Wagners, who loved and promoted him for many years, but his foals have continued the winning way that he began.

Goforth Littlebit Image

1969
Measured 28 3/4″
Foaled in 1969, Goforth Littlebit, was a beautiful-headed red roan stallion that was bred by Lloyd Johnston, who owned Gold Melody Boy. His papers show unknown background, but looking at his foals, I have always wondered if he might be related to the Gold Melody Boy line. Many of his foals have been palomino. He has forty-seven foals registered from 1973-1990.

Among his accomplishments were numerous national champion titles with the International Miniature Horse Association. He has sired three National or Reserve National Champions in AMHA: Amy’s Tycoon, 1990 National Champion Junior Amateur Stallion. Another was Bar B Littlebits Touch of Class, 1989 National Champion Two Year Old Mare and Reserve National Grand Champion Junior Mare. Still another is a mare that we own, Littlebit’s O Honey, who was the 1988 Reserve National Champion Youth Mare.

Modern Day Gold Rush
(reprinted from The Miniature Horse, February 1998)

Gold! Throughout history, man has desired and pursued gold. It is no different in the horse world. The gold sheen, the snowy white mane and tail have been an elusive element in horses. The palomino horse has been celebrated in myth, legend and recorded history from man’s earliest beginnings. Since man first domesticated the horse, the golden horse has been highly prized by emperors, kings and queens. Palomino horses are found among the finest bloodlines of breeds from all over the world; their appeal is international. In Shetlands, one name stands above the rest for golden color: Realization.

Scott Uzell wrote in The Journal: Realization 24304, bred and owned by Colonel Leon Robinson of Dunkirk, Ohio, lived but 11 short years (1944-1955). However, during that span, Realization put Dunkirk on the map and turned Robinson’s Pony Farm into “the fountainhead of palomino Shetlands.”

Realization was aptly named, for he was indeed just that – the “realization” of Col. Robinson’s dream of producing a strain of palomino Shetlands.

Although it was his beautiful golden color that brought him fame, a look at Realization’s background reveals there was much more than just color to his credit. Realization’s sire and dam, Radiant Leon and Marilee M, were both cream-colored ponies bred by W.H. Sloppy of Marshalltown, Iowa. Sloppy was renowned as the originator of the Linnwood family, a strain of predominantly silver dapple, white mane and tail Shetlands.

Radiant Leon’s sire, Hesitation Leon, a silver dapple bred by Sloppy, was a son of Jolly Boy Polk. Among Jolly Boy Polk’s other progeny were Blondie Ann, the dam of Crescent’s Copper Penny and Crescent’s Golden Penny, Strawberry Ann, Hillswick Houdini, the dam of Little Masterpiece, and Bonnie Bride, the dam of Hillswick Oracle (purchased by Vern Brewer in 1959 for $35,000) and the great-grand sire of Rowdy!

It is easy to see how Realization came by his talent as a stud. He sired a trio of famous full brothers out of Red Lady Bug. One, Ver-Ken’s Golden Ken, made quite a name for himself as the sire in the hands of Ken Reisinger of Eldora, Iowa, and The Real McCoy brought $10,000 at auction in 1957. The third brother was a magnificent palomino stallion by the name of My Golden Toy who sold for well over $50,000 in the 60s.

At the 1952 Ohio State Fair, My Golden Toy, as a two year old, won Grand Champion Stallion honors. Highly regarded British Judge Albert Hargreaves said he had never seen anything like him. My Golden Toy was later sold to Bill Marks of Winchester, Virginia, who by 1958 was selling foals by My Golden Toy for $5,000 at weaning!

It is a credit to the great sire Realization that, 43 years after his death, another “Gold Rush” had taken place through one of his grand-get, Gold Melody Boy.

In 1961, William Dalton of Hendersonville, North Carolina, bred Lightning Bug to Gin’s Melody. Lightning Bug was bred by Col. Robinson and sired by Realization out of the great producing mare, Daffodil. Lightning Bug was a striking palomino with a strip and hind socks. Gin’s Melody was a sorrel mare with a blaze and three socks, a mare rich in the Larigo breeding, another successful line of champions. The mating produced on June 19, 1962, a golden palomino colt Dalton named Gold Melody Boy.

William Dalton’s son, Danny, of Timber Ridge Farm in Tennessee, continues: Dad was a Shetland breeder specializing in palominos which evolved from midget Shetlands to miniatures. He would guarantee a palomino foal when allowed to study the pedigree of a mare and select the stallion to which she was bred. Lightning Bug was one of the stallions he used to produce this popular color.

“We had two sales, the first in 1963 at which time Lightning Bug, Gold Melody Boy’s sire, sold for $1,125. Gold Melody Boy was in the sale as a yearling, but did not sell. The second sale was in 1968 and was the first event ever held at the Western North Carolina Agriculture Center in Fletcher, NC, where many miniature shows and sales have since been held. More than 100 palominos of all breeds and several midget Shetlands were offered in this sale.”

In the late 60s and early 70s, Dalton said Gold Melody Boy was bred to their mares and also used by J.C. Williams, Dell Tera Farms, NC. “During those years, Dad and J.C. would buy a herd of ponies together, then divide them, keeping the smaller ones and selling the big ones. One such trip even included a llama and a dead horse. It had a heart attack while being loaded!”

Dalton said several horses sired by Gold Melody Boy were registered with an unknown sire and dam because at that time “it was not cool for a miniature to be related to a Shetland.”

In 1972, Lloyd Johnston was looking for a palomino stallion. Williams told him about Gold Melody Boy and the possibility of buying the stallion. On October 7, 1972, Gold Melody Boy sold to Johnston for $775.

Dalton’s last foal crop by Gold Melody Boy was 1973, and Johnston’s first foal crop was the following year.

“It is kind of ironic that Dad was the judge of the 1983 AMHA National Show when Boone’s Little Buckeroo was named National Grand Champion Senior Stallion. This Gold Melody Boy grandson had a big role in starting a miniature revolution,” Dalton added.

Wayne Booker, of Old Mulberry Hill Farm, said his bloodline started when he went to a miniature horse sale in the early 80s. While at the sale, he heard about a local lady who had beautiful palominos. The woman was difficult to locate, but he was finally successful only to find she had nothing to sell. He inquired where she had found her beautiful golden miniatures, and was told William Dalton of Peaceful Valley Ranch, NC.

“That was the start of my friendship with a fine gentleman and renowned horse breeder not just of Shetlands and miniatures, but of all breeds.” Dalton acquired his original Shetland stock from Robinson, who in the late 40s bred the incredible Realization, the foundation head of a dynasty of the highest quality palomino line during the Shetland heyday (approximately 1948-1961).

Realization sired My Golden Toy and Lightning Bug, sire of Gold Melody Boy. Dalton purchased Lightning Bug and an inbred son of My Golden Toy to his full sister, which produced Little Toy. Little Toy and Lightning Bug were the “golden key” in Dalton’s breeding, according to Booker.

“I purchased two palomino mares: a palomino filly and a 33″ son of Little Toy from Dalton. Over the next several years, I purchased another cremello stud and ultimately bought my Gold Melody Boy son, Gold King. This was all before the Gold Melody Boy bloodline became so immensely popular. I remember Dalton was amused and pleased that I wanted both the Shetland and the miniature registration papers. Of course, during that era most people did not want a connection made between the miniature horse and the Shetland pony. I am a very small breeder and much of my success with my Shetlands and miniatures has been because of the friendship and knowledge Dalton graciously shared with me,” Booker said.

According to the AMHA Studbook, Gold Melody Boy produced 34 registered offspring, 8 stallions and 26 mares. Of the 8 stallions, only 4 are alive or have produced any foals since 1985. The 4 who remain, trace offspring all over the country and form the foundation of many successful breeding programs. The names are familiar: Roan Ranger, owned by Joe Spino and Al Glass of S & G Miniatures, Chapel Hill, TN; Wittmaacks Mickey Mouse and Johnstons Gold bar, both owned by Judith Kurth of Alameda Farm, Lufkin, TX, and Johnstons Gold Boy, owned by Jane and Randy Walls of RoseHill Ranch, TX.

These stallions have done phenomenally well siring show horses. Roan Ranger has sired an AMHA National Grand Champion Stallion, Skip A Star; Reserve National Grand Champion Stallion, Johnston’s Starlight Ranger, and National Grand Champion Junior Stallion, NFCs Sugar Boy. For AMHR, he produced two-time National Grand Champion Stallion, Gingerbread Farms Rapid Transit. Wittmaacks Mickey Mouse has produce a National Champion, Sterling Silver, and numerous Top Tens. Incidentally, the dam of the ’97 National Grand Champion Junior Stallion is a Mickey daughter! Johnston’s Gold Bar has produced several Top Tens himself. Johnston’s Gold Boy has produced daughters who are proving themselves to be superior dams of champions.

Gold Melody Boy daughters have been priceless treasures in breeding programs. Among the most familiar is Johnston’s Vanilla, owned by Lowell Boone of Indiana. She has secured her place in history by producing Boone’s Little Buckeroo (featured as the “Sire of Significance” in the May-June issue).

Examine the pedigrees of the horses bred by the Johnstons and Wittmaacks and you will find they used inbreeding and ine breeding extensively. The offspring they produced have a certain “look” that shows tremendous type, elegance and balance. This bloodline has passed these qualities on for generations and will continue to do so, because many of the farms that have miniatures from this line are practicing the same principles of breeding today.

Gold Melody Boy was owned and loved by the Daltons, the Johnstons, and the Wagners of Flying W Farms, where he died at the age of 21 in 1983. The story could have ended then, but in the late ’80s and early ’90s, Charles Penland, of SweetWater Farm, Greer, SC, was buying miniatures from all over the country and ended up with a few Gold Melody Boy offspring. He like them so well he began researching and located the Wittmaacks who had many of the line left. Penland was able to purchase a few, but the Wittmaacks were not interested in selling the entire herd… until Wittmaack was diagnosed with cancer. At that time, Penland purchased all their horses and asked Norma Wittmaack to trace the horses she and the Johnstons had owned and bred.

Many advertisements were placed in publications offering to buy horses bred by the Johnstons and Wittmaacks. This tactic proved to be very successful. Another lucky break came when Jane Zebus, of Cedar Grove Farm, leased Roan Ranger from Fredericka Wagner for one year. Penland purchased Jane’s herd (all the mares were bred to Roan Ranger) and was able to keep Roan Ranger for the remainder of the lease. At the end of the lease, Roan Ranger was sold to Joe Spino and Al Glass and came to his final destination. Penland bred all the horses he acquired for many years until he began selling these horses to breeders around the country. The rest is history!

Winner in 1986. THE King, who started a dynasty! Certainly one of, if not the most well-known, best-promoted, and most outstanding sires in the history of miniature horses. King, as of the end of 2001, has sired 234 foals, with 37 of them garnering the title of National Champion or Reserve National Champion! And his grand-get and great-grand-get continue the tradition so nobly started by the King! The 1999 National Show showed the strength of the line with over 150 Top Ten finishers being descendants of King!

As reported in The Horseman’s Report by Ron Youngblood , and later noted in the NFC sales catalogs:

Hemlock Brooks Egyptian King
“In 1980 Bob Erwin bought his wife Sandy a Christmas present; now that’s not unusual, but the present was. Sandy’s present was an 8-month-old miniature horse named Egyptian King. Initially, Egyptian King lived in the Erwin’s backyard in Dallas where Bob operates a successful insurance business. Bob and Sandy became more interested in miniature horses, and they decided to make their miniature horse hobby into a business with the same goals as other large successful big horse breeds, simply to produce superior quality horses.

“Now, through acquiring the best breeding foundation stock available, an organized professional breeding program designed to improve the breed, a facility to enable professional breeding, training and showing, and most importantly securing the best available personnel, the Erwins are beginning to realize their goals.

“The proof of the pudding is in the eating. When the smoke had cleared at the 1986 National Championships, NFC had won 6 out of 8 of them, and most interesting, Sandy’s little 8-month-old stallion Christmas Gift, now an 11-year-old, was the National Grand Champion Stallion.

“King is retired to breeding and Sandy continues to enjoy and love her favorite horse, anxiously awaiting his get each year and closely following them in the show ring.

“Miniatures are fun, heart warming, a good investment, and can fill a big part of your life.”

Kings Andy
Bob and Sandy Erwin and NFC Miniature Horse Farm continued to set the standard for the industry throughout the eighties and then, because of many other business interests, dispersed their herd in 1993, with the exception of King and Meggin, a mare that had come along with King that Christmas, some thirteen years earlier. In 1995, Bob died very unexpectedly and suddenly. I wrote the following article at the request of The Journal:

“Bob Erwin, noted miniature breeder, died at his home in Dallas, Texas, on Thursday morning, May 11, 1995. He founded NFC Marketing Associates in 1976 and also founded National Family Care Life Insurance company. A Christmas present to his wife, Sandy, started him in the miniature horse business, and set the standard for the industry, winning an unprecedented six National Grand Championships in 1986. His production sales in the 1980s set the price standard for the industry. The following is an excerpt from an article that I wrote in 1993 on the occasion of his dispersal sale in Oklahoma City:

A Weekend to Remember–
The Sale of the Century
-Tony W. Greaves
Heritage Place in Oklahoma City was a fitting setting for what was billed as “The Sale of the Century” as miniature fanciers from coast to coast gathered for the opportunity to purchase one of the horses of the famed NFC Farm dispersal. Those who came were not to be disappointed… the offering of 356 animals was excellently fit and presented for its walk into history. Bob and Sandy Erwin, owners of NFC Farm, were on hand to play host and answer questions from the hundreds of spectators. This endeavor started some thirteen years ago, in 1980, when Bob bought Sandy a Christmas present, an eight-month-old miniature horse, Egyptian King!

Those who have been in the business for a few weeks or more know, as Paul Harvey says, “The rest of the story.” But for those who are new, let’s take a look back.

At first, King lived in the backyard of the Erwin’s home in an elegant section north of downtown Dallas, not far from their insurance company office. He was joined shortly by a filly, Meggin. From that first pair of miniatures, their interest grew, and soon they were looking for a place to board their pair so that they could add to them.

They called around and found that there was a nun down in Corpus Christi who raised miniatures. Soon they struck a deal that was a WIN/WIN situation. They would help the Monastery in their plans and in return they would show King and take care of the Erwin’s growing group of miniatures.

Perhaps the late Sister Bernadette said it best in her book, Sister Bernadette, Cowboy Nun from Texas: “One day I received a call from a gentleman in Dallas who told me he had purchased a miniature horse for his wife for Christmas. ‘I think it’s a nice looking horse,’ he said. ‘Would you be willing to show it for us?” That began a long association with Bob and Sandy Erwin who, after their horse Egyptian King shot to stardom the first time we showed him, started buying small mares which we kept in our stables. Soon they owned forty minis. With Bob’s financial help, we built a beautiful sixty-stall show barn….'”

Later, after Bob and Sandy decided that they wanted their horses closer to home, they bought the farm near Whitesboro. They continued to help Sister Bernadette. In fact, later in her book she refers to a time when she needed $25,000 to put down on the new location in Brenham. She notes that a phone call was made and she had the money. Not noted in the book is that the phone call was to Bob Erwin.

Their place in history of miniatures was secure when, in 1986, they won six of the eight National Championships that were available at that time. Their showstring was well known from coast to coast for the following years with records too numerous to elaborate in this article, but suffice it to say that their record will stand for a long time to come.

The charity of the Erwins is great, and much greater than publicly known. A donation of a filly to the KERA Public TV station started one family in the business and whetted the appetite of many more. Donations of other horses have helped raise money for many other groups including the Southwest Miniature Horse Club and the National AMHA Youth Group to name just a few.

They took a great interest in our young people, sponsoring my daughter, Lisa Greaves, and Cheri Chauvin in beauty pageants. They helped Keeble Carmichael stay in the miniature horse business and with the dispersing of her horse that Bob had kept for her, helped finance her education through law school. They also helped many people upgrade their stock when they couldn’t afford it by financing their purchases.

Starting in 1987, the Erwins had an annual production sale and one consignment sale, culminating May 14 and 15, 1993, with their dispersal. The sales set the standard for the industry with the sales averaging from $8,293 to $14,295.

All in all, it was an emotionally thrilling and draining weekend. When Boogerman walked into the ring I got choked up talking about him and his history, and more than a few teary eyes were noted as the audience applauded the final buyers and Jackie Crisp and groom, Tito, who had figured so heavily in his career. It took all of the muster I could find to finish reading the pedigree of the last horse, because he was led into the ring by Sandy. When I finished my talk and the auctioneer started to sell him I had to turn my back on the crowd, spotted Bob, and broke into tears… it wasn’t a funeral, but to me, it was just as emotional. Thank you Bob and Sandy, for what you have done for the industry, and thank you for your friendship. I hope that this is not the end of an era, but only an intermission in a great, great show… after all, you still have King and Meggin!

Unfortunately, the intermission is over, and Bob will not return for an encore. Many people who did not know him only thought of him as a fierce competitor, and that he was. He loved to win at everything he did, and usually did. But to all who really knew him, he was known as a true humanitarian who was more than generous with all whom he came in contact. I join the many who mourn the loss!”

After the sale of their horses, King was leased to Grosshill Farms until the year 2000, at which time he returns home to Sandy. He will be twenty at the start of the millennium….who knows, could it be that “He’s only just begun?”

I made a special stop in Florida to see Little Champ because we had been using one of his sons, Komoko’s Little Dude, for many years and had been so pleased with his foal that we wanted to see his sire. He was a very pretty stallion, a little heavier than some would prefer, but really cut the size on his foals. With forty-two registered foals, he also had the following National Champions:

Sire: Komoko’s King Tut
One of the smallest miniature stallions of his time, Komoko’s Little Husseler set a world record when he sold to Robert Pauley of Hobby Horse Miniature Horse Farm, Bedford, Virginia. It was 1982 and Joel “Bob” Bridges had a production sale, where Husseler sold for $12,500. After three years with Hobby Horse, Husseler was sold to Bob and Sandy Erwin, who were looking for a tiny herdsire to add to their newly formed NFC Miniature Horse Farm. For $25,000 they felt that he was just the right stallion to join the likes of Hemlock Brooks Egyptian King, Rowdy, and a host of other stallions.

Komoko’s Little Husseler He remained as a mainstay of the NFC program until their dispersal in 1993, when he sold to Eric and Marilyn Meyer, World of Miniatures, in Canada. Sometime later, they moved to Texas where, at the age of twenty-six, he made an impressive appearance at The Miniature Event’s Stallion Avenue.

As a sire, he has seventy-two foals registered with AMHA and appears in literally hundreds of pedigrees as grandsire and further back. He was very notable for his wide-set large eyes, which I see continuing in his get for generations. I have one of his daughters and several of his granddaughters that you can pick out by their pretty heads and very prominent eyes. He is one of the special stallions whose get continue to show his mark.

Here is a post on Lil Beginnings by Belinda Bagby on the death of Red Boy:

Lazy N Redboy
1980
“Today is a day that no one here at the farm wanted to see come !! We laid Redboy to rest today Aug 23, 2010 after failing health this summer. We had to make the decision to let him go . Dad , My Husband , ours and Redboys close friend Clyde , myself and Dr. Tilley were all with him as he Passed on to those Green Pastures where so many of his friends and family have already gone..

My friend you made us who we are today NO doubt you own this farm now and forever !! Enjoy running and taking care of all those Girls again.

Redboy has left his mark in History with all his sons and daughters , and their get and the line just goes on..

Redboy is the sire of “CROSS COUNTRY CALL ME SIR”*** “CROSS COUNTRY PRIVATE TERMS”*** CROSS COUNTRY TAKE MY BREATH AWAY”*** CROSS COUNTRY CALL ME AWESOME *** CROSS COUNTRY STEPPIN FOR THE MOON” ** CHAMPION FARMS NIGHTHAWK** CROSS COUNTRY ROWDYS REFLECTION** CROSS COUNTRY NATIVE DANCER*** CROSS COUNTRY WIZARD** All these sons have been National Champions and /or gone on to sire many National Champions also. And many more these are just a few of the great stallions that Redboy has left to carry on his legacy.

Redboy is also the sire of many National Champion Mares and many of his daughters have also gone on to produce many National Champions, Redboy is the sire of “CROSS COUNTRY BAY MIST” a two time AMHA World Grand Champion Mare she won her titles as a Junior mare and then came back the Next year to Win it as a Senior Mare.. Bay Mist has many many Supreme Halter titles and was quite the talk of the Town during her show Career .. Cross Country Miss Amy , Cross Country Cherish and the list here just goes on and on also.

We have kept 4 Redboy sons, and all have already proven to us that they will make their Father Proud.

Redboy you are gone but Never FORGOTTEN ! I Already Miss you so much!!”

In 1984, I was fortunate enough to be able to attend the dispersal of the Lazy N Stables, in Winters, Texas. The stables, owned by a long time friend of our family, belonged to Jno. W. Norman. I always wondered when I was a kid why they pronounced “Jno” as “John”. My parents told me that there had been two John Normans in town and so Mr. Norman, an attorney, adopted the name Jno. to differentiate the two of them. He carried that name until he died in his late eighties. When his health started failing, his good friends, Vern and Betty Brewer, volunteered to help put on a dispersal sale of his miniatures, Shetlands, and an extensive museum quality collection of horse drawn carriages.

Truly the big draw of the sale was the carriages which brought ten’s of thousands of dollars, but truly the big draw of the “livestock” was a bay stallion who had been making quite a name for himself and several of his sons and daughters. That bay stallion was, of course, Rowdy, who sold as lot number eight. Right behind him was a gorgeous two year old son with blue eyes, flaxen mane and tail and a striking blaze! That beautiful young stallion was Lazy N Red Boy! He was purchased by A. W. Huebsch of Madill, Oklahoma, and only a few months later was sold to Max Lawson, of Cross Country Farms, Hot Springs, Arkansas, where I am sure he will stay until his death.

I asked Belinda Bagby, Max’s daughter about Redboy. Her sentiments were expressed, as follows:

It is kinda a standing thing around here when people come to the farm and ask, “Do you own this farm?” (sightseers) We tell them, “No, you see that horse right there? He owns this farm because he paid for it!” When Bob (Irwin) kept trying to buy Redboy and had made an offer that I saw Dad was really getting itchy about accepting, I told Dad, “Well, if you do that, tell Bob to send the biggest trailer he has, and just load Redboy and all the mares because you just sold your program…!” Needless to say he thought about it and Redboy was a permanent fixture..

That “permanent fixture” has proven to be an outstanding choice. Just a few of the outstanding get of Lazy N Redboy, include the following:

After sending a copy of this page to Belinda Bagby, she responded with this note, which I hope she doesn’t mind my sharing. It sheds a little light on the way that many, so-called “big breeders”, feel about their special horses:

Thanks !!! It all but brought tears to me,,, You know I think sometimes you are only allowed one great horse in a life time, but I have been allowed Two the first was my Barrel Horse whose name is JOHN he won more saddles and the State Championship over several hundred entries and also was a great pole bending horse, won saddles there also , he is now believe it or not about 32yrs old and has been doing nothing but enjoying life for the last 10 yrs. The second is Redboy who as you said will be here until the day he dies………..S0 if I never get another great horse , I will not feel cheated as I feel that I have had my share. Thanks for putting Redboy up there with the other Great Stallions as King and Rowdy.

The following is an article that I wrote and was published in 1997 for The Miniature Horse.

A Horse called Orion…
In July of 1982, Vern Brewer and I took a trip to the east coast, one of several such trips over a couple of years, looking for miniature horses. On this particular trip, we visited Ray and Ruby Lee, of Shady Acres Miniature Horses, in Hardin, Kentucky, Bond Miniature Horses in Lavonia, Georgia, and J.C. Williams’s Dell Tera Miniature Horses, Inman, SC. We finished the tour with a stop at Mark Verhaeghe’s animal park where he had his miniature horses. We enjoyed seeing his gift shops, petting zoo, and all the atmosphere of his “resort”, but had to wait until the next morning to see his miniature horses. We then found that the wait was worth it. Mark had come from Belgium some years before and his herd of mares averaged 29″ in height, very small for that time. He also had a group of oversized mares that were mostly POA mares for another breeding plan that he had in mind.

He took us up to the barns after touring all the pastures and the girl that was working for him turned out into the paddock in front of the barn, a young stallion that excited us both. We asked about him and Mark said that he just used him in his appaloosa program because he was afraid that at 31″ refined and leggy, he would not cross well on his little draft-type mares. This beautiful pintaloosa stallion that we could not take our eyes off of, was of course, Orion-Light Van’t Huttenest.

While Vern was talking to Mark, I pulled the trainer aside and asked if she thought that Mark would be interested in selling Orion. She said that she thought that he ought to because he only bred him to the big app mares and she thought that it was a waste. I pressed further and she said that she figured that he would sell him if he was offered around $35,000.

While we were standing there watching Orion run from one side of the paddock to the other, Mark’s wife called him to the phone. While he was gone, Vern and I both were excited about what was in front of us. We both thought that he was the most beautiful, refined, elegant stallion that we had seen on any of our trips looking at horses. I told him what the trainer had said about the possibility of selling.

When Verhaghe returned we visited for a while and he said that he really did not want to sell. We both told him that we would really like to see some foals from him and some of the little Belgium mares. He said that his trainer had been trying to get him to breed some, but that he thought that the foals would just be too big. We discussed the possibilities at length and he finally said that maybe he would breed some mares to him that season just to see what would happen. All the way back to Texas our conversation seemed to drift back to that beautiful stallion. Vern said that he really did not like his color but really liked his conformation. I said that I thought that he was the most beautiful horse that I had ever seen regardless of color or even of breed!

Time passed, and the next year, Vern was able to buy some of the foals resulting from those breedings since Verhaeghe was still not willing to sell. Among the group he got two colts, Happy Appy and Xenon-Light Van’t Huttenest. When they were yearlings, the Brewers had both of them in their showstring, and late in the year decided to sell the bigger of the two, Xenon (which he had allowed his son Roy to purchase). I bought Xenon from Roy at a show in Austin as he came out of the ring after winning the class and before he got junior grand in the show. It is a purchase that I have never regretted. He is still, many years later, one of my premier herd sires, and I have many daughters and granddaughters in my broodmare band. In fact, more than twenty-five horses in my herd are direct descendents of Orion.

After several years of negotiating to purchase or lease Orion, Vern Brewer finally bought the entire remaining herd of forty-two head in order to get Orion. It was a long and arduous negotiation, but Vern was up to it. Since the early 1950s he knew that the importance of a stallion could not be over emphasized, and the time and money that it took to get the right stallion was time and money well spent. History seems to continually bear out that opinion.

Some years later, after encouraging Vern to buy Bond Dynamo (that’s an entire other story), he gave me a breeding to Orion and Dynamo for Christmas one year. Another of my herd sires, 28 ½” Little America’s Orion Mr It, was the result of my breeding to Orion. His first foals are proving to be a great asset to our program, too. The prepotency of the Orion line continues to amaze and please me after all these years.

The following is an article I wrote at the request of David McBride for The Miniature Horse before it ceased being published:

Generation after Generation of Excellence – Rowdy
One of my favorite remembrances of being a child with parents in the Shetland pony business is going to shows and sales all over the United States. At one such show, I saw one of the most fabulous black and white show ponies that ever existed, Kewpie Doll’s Oracle by Hillswicke Oracle, who was foaled in 1945. He was as refined and elegant as any horse that ever stepped into the show ring. Some years later, in the mid 1960s, my parents took me to a production sale at the J. A. Stovall farm in Era, Texas, where I saw the reason behind that beautiful stallion, his dam, Streamliners Kewpie Doll, who was the model mare of the Shetland Congress in 1948 and 1949. She was a beautiful-headed, tri-colored mare with the highest tailset that I had ever seen. I begged my parents to buy her, but to no avail. She was in her late teens and brought around $10,000, which was way out of our budget! One of Kewpie Doll’s daughters and a full sister to Kewpie Doll’s Oracle, Hillswicke Q P Doll, Grand Champion Mare of the National Shetland Congress as a yearling in 1952, had topped the sale in Perry, Oklahoma, not once, but twice. The first time, she was in show shape and had a beautiful foal by her side. I couldn’t believe that she could have a foal and still look ready to go into the show ring. For those miniature readers who have never shown Shetlands, show shape meant with a four inch “show hoof” with weighted shoes, tucked up, and looking like a million!

Fast forward to 1980. Carol, my wife, and our daughter, Lisa, then only six, had just returned from almost four years of living in New York City. We were back in Texas building a quarter horse stud farm in Valley View, Texas, thirty miles north of Dallas. I still had a stallion from the Shetland years who was the smallest that we had ever raised, Greaves Big Un, 31″ tall and a grandson of one of the stallions that we had bought at that Stovall sale around 1960-61. I told my dad that I wanted to get some miniature mares to breed to Big Un. He told me that his long-time friend, Jno. W. Norman, in Winters, Texas, still had quite a few Shetlands and he thought he also had a few miniatures, too. On a trip to West Texas to pick up a quarter horse for my dad, I decided to swing by Mr. Norman’s Lazy N Stables to see what he had. At this time Mr. Norman was in his mid-eighties, I think, and was fairly incapacitated. I remember visiting him when I was eight or nine and riding in his stage coach. It was pulled by six ponies trained by his trainer, Vern Brewer. It was called the Red, White, and Blue hitch – Two white, two sorrel, and two blue roans!

Anyway, after a nice visit, Mr. Norman called the man who worked for him and told him to take me out to look at his ponies. He did not want to sell any of the smallest, but he would sell me some of the “borderline” miniatures if I was interested. When I saw his weanlings, I knew that they were a special lot. They were much more refined than most of the miniatures that I had seen. Looked much more like the modern show horses but in miniature! My guide told me that they were all by a bay stallion that Mr. Norman was using. The name of that stallion was Rowdy. I picked out three yearlings that I thought were the best along with six mares. When I went back to the house to talk to Mr. Norman, he said that the three yearlings were not available because he was giving them to a friend. I later found out that that friend was Vern Brewer, and those three started the Brewer Family Miniature adventure! By the way, one of those three turned out to be the National Grand Champion, Rowdy’s Charm, some time later! It turned out that Mr. Norman had persuaded Vern to come out and look at the horses. Always having an eye for a show horse, Vern had accepted the gift of the three miniatures and bought three more to go along with them. Vern had never liked the little Shetlands in the early days because they were so coarse and heavy boned, but these were an entirely different style. Anyway, I made a deal with him and bought six mares all bred to Rowdy. After getting home I started doing some investigation and found to my amazement that the sire of Rowdy was Kewpie’s Sun who was a son of the horse that I had admired as a child: Kewpie Doll’s Oracle!! I had wanted him as a child, but now I had some of his descendants. In 1984 because of advanced age and failing health, Mr. Norman had a dispersal sale at which time Rowdy was sold. Vern and Betty Brewer were putting on the sale for their long-time friend and encouraged Bob and Sandy Erwin of NFC Farm to purchase the 34″ stallion to add to their stallion roster. They bought the 1973 stallion for $5,500 along with two daughters. After the sale I asked Vern why he didn’t buy Rowdy. He replied that because of Rowdy’s size and Vern’s age he felt he couldn’t use him. He wanted to breed them down and already had five Rowdy daughters and one son to start his breeding program.

The rest, as they say is history. That bay stallion sired some of the leading winners in the AMHA history including, but not limited to:

Lazy N Boogerman
who sold at the NFC Dispersal sale in 1993 for an unprecedented $110,000 and is the winningest stallion in AMHA history being the 1992 National Grand Champion

Quality will tell and goes on telling through generation after generation. Rowdy died in 1990 at the age of seventeen, but the show records of his future generations are still being written.

He had one of the nicer groups of small stock that we were able to find. Jo Jo and his sire were two very pretty stallions that were his main herdsires at the time. The next few years, Vern bought most of the mares that the Lees had, but none of the stallions.

Bay Pinto Stallion AMHA #A160412 34″ AMHR
March 14, 2004

Sire: LEPRECHAUN ACRES TOPPERS DAN #A91366 32″
Dam: SOUTHERN CHARM PHANTOMS FANTASIA #A86359 34″

Video is of the World Grand Champion Single Pleasure Driving Class in AMHA 2012. Lauren and I were able to tape the award from two sides of the arena. Anita Ray whose deceased husband trained him took the final victory pass in honor of Richard Ray.

The first time I saw Phantom Storm was at the AMHA World Show in 2007. He immediately caught my attention, so much so that I looked up his owners, Don and Mary Lou Knapp. Turns out that they was customers of our, having bought one of our mares at on of the World Show sales some years earlier. I visited with them and told them how much I liked their stallion who, by the way,at that show won FIVE World Championships including World GRAND Champion Single Pleasure Driving! He offered to breed a mare if I was interested. I thanked him, but since I was in Texas and he was in Florida, gave it no more thought.

Fast forward several years and many World Championships and in 2012 Lauren happened to get to come to more of the World. Previously she just came for the youth portion and had to be in school during the rest of the show, but this year she stayed for most of it. I was sitting on one side of the arena and she on another when Single Pleasure Driving came into the ring. A couple of minutes later my phone rang. It was Lauren telling me to LOOK AT THAT HORSE!!! I laughingly told her that that was Phantom Storm that I had told her about several years ago and that his owners were sitting just a few rows in front of her and for her to introduce herself. Needless to say, she did and the next year we were on the way to the AMHA Annual Meeting in Florida in our trailer with two mares bound for Classic View Miniature Horse Farm with dates with Phantom Storm!

One of the mares that made that trip foaled a gorgeous black pinto colt, Little America’s Phantom Knightfall, who has been a fantastic addition to our operation. He is a multiple Supreme Halter Horse, Liberty winner, Top Ten in several classes and was in a three way tie for World Champion Multi-Color, but finished third. We are waiting for him to mature more before putting him in driving training.

Meanwhile we have a couple more mares that went to Florida earlier in 2016 and just a few days ago brought back nine sons and daughters and grandget of Stormy to market. Our enthusiasm and friendship with the Knapp’s cemented this deal which puts his offspring much closer to many miniature enthusiasts all over the nation.

Meanwhile, here is Stormy’s fantastic AMHA Show Record. He is also HOF and much more with AMHR.

Measured 29 1/2″
Sire: Dell Tera’s Moonman

Winner in 1980. What a flashy little guy Mucho Macho was! The first time I saw him, I thought that he was one of the most correct little horses that I had seen. Although as a foal, he must not have been too impressive because his breeder, J.C. Williams, Dell Tera Miniature Horses, sold him as a weanling to a pet store in Dallas for a pet! Jayne Summers was looking through the Dallas Morning News’ classified for a gift for her young son. Under the heading of “Exotic Animals” she found the ad which listed “miniature horse”. She had had horses when she was young and thought that it sounded interesting, so they went to the pet store, saw Mucho, and bought him. That was the first of many they had during the ten or so years they were in the miniature business. During that time, Jayne’s husband, Jim, became the volunteer executive secretary for AMHA after Dr. Blair, the founder, stepped down.

Summer’s Mucho Macho
Pictured with “Jimbo” Summers

A son of Dell Tera’s Moon Man, Mucho Macho turned out to be much more than just a flashy little pet. In fact, he turned out to be the National Grand Champion Stallion in 1980 and the National Champion 28 to 30″ in 1982. When the Summers sold out of the miniature business, Mucho and many of their horses were purchased by Vern Brewer who bred him for some time and then sold him to Guy and Virtus Hyatt of Tinker Toy Ranch where he lived until his death.

One of Mucho’s sons, Summers’ Mucho Machisimo, was well known on the show circuit as the wonderful performance horse that was shown to the “super amateur”, the late Orville Suddarth. With Orville’s training, Machisimo won seventeen National Champion or Reserve National Championships in performance!
