A Valuable Breeder's Resource 23 Jun. 2008
By Toni Leland - Published on
Format: Perfect Paperback
When using the pedigree as a guide to an individual horse's genetic possibilities, one must consider the fact that pedigrees are only as good as the records that were kept on the individuals involved. Names alone do not predict the potential of an individual, and without good tracking back, the serious Miniature Horse breeder must rely more on the individual's conformation, performance, and production records. Outstanding Miniature Horse Stallions presents the best of the best in easy to understand, attractive volumes-valuable research tools for breeders.

Elder begins the stallion book with a detailed discussion of the foundation sires of the American Miniature Horse, and touches on the importance of the mares to which they were bred. She then continues with a discussion of the "right nick"-famous bloodline crosses that have repeated themselves many times over: Rowdy daughters to Hemlock Brooks Egyptian King, Boones Little Buckeroo crosses with Komokos Little Kings Supreme, and Orion Light Van't Huttenest crosses with Bond Dynamo, to name a few. The book contains 230 featured stallions, each with a photograph, pedigree, owner information, production and performance records. Elder goes on to tell the unique stories of several famous stallions, including Boones Little Buckeroo, Flying W Farms Little Blue Boy, Rowdy, and Gold Melody Boy. A glossary and full index complete this 304-page resource.

Entertaining and educational, in this reviewer's opinion, Outstanding Miniature Horse Stallions would be a good addition to any horseman's library.

A MUST-HAVE!! 14 Sept. 2005
By Mary Baskin - Published on
Format: Perfect Paperback
I got my copy of this book last weekend and couldn't put it down! It is jam packed with information about the most influential stallions in the Miniature Horse breed. I particularly enjoyed the owners anecdotes describing how they found their horse, his most important wins, etc. Run, don't walk, to get your copy!!!

I bought the book to learn about the best of the breed and I am not dissapointed. I found my horses Grand sire and a mention of his sire.
but it gives you great info on past greats of the miniature horses 2 Mar. 2015

The book is dated, but it gives you great info on past greats of the miniature horses. Mares on pedigrees can be harder to find info on than the sires. Being a pedigree buff, I'm happy with the book.
