Artist Comments: Here was a famous American Saddlebred stallion from the late sixties. There were very few photos of him for some reason so finding a face marking was rather difficult. He has sired some of the greatest contemporary show horses in the ring today and his name appeares in a great number of pedigrees. I chose him though, not so much for his contributions in that regard, but in his handsome regal look! He is everything a horse should be in my opinion...proud and lofty and fully chromed out with his flaxen mane and tail, white legs, and beautiful face! When I think of saddlebreds, I think of this handsome stallion and all his beautiful descendants. He was truly a gift to the breed and all who love them!
