his colt is 100% heritage eligible. He comes from a long solid line of working western walking horses and seriously foundation stock. I would love to see him stand as a stud to preserve these excellent lines. He is everything that a walking horse should be. This colt is just SOLID - solid bone, solid mind, solid disposition, solid 4 beat gait. I'm starting to think we should've called him "The Rock" instead of Surprize. He is practical, sensible and simple.... (read more) While that doesn't sound very romantic, he'll absolutely steal your heart.
His sire, Remembrance's Merry Snip, is one of the last closest living links to both Midnight Sun and Merry Boy, with other great horses (Wilson's Allen, Roan Allen, the great mare Merry Legs, Go Boy's Nite Storm, Ebony Masterpiece, Society Man and an incridibly strong dam line through the Ray Corum breeding program, including Midnight Peggie P, Stormy's Ebony Doll and Ebony' Co-Ed.)
His dam is SCW Ange Kerry aka "Velvet" is a great big, POWERFUL mare. She was bred by Slush Creek Walkers in Montana and named for the Louis L'Amour character from the Sackett Brand book. She is by Slush Creek's Jubal S, a great minded, big boned gentle giant of a horse. Velvet is directly by the heritage sire, Slush Creek's Jubal S., a gentle giant of a stallion who was the last horse produced by Calvin Miller's Ranch. He had an exceptionally quiet and gentle nature, a nice natural running walk and a gorgeous head. He stood 16.1 hands with the thicker, heavier, using/pleasure horse body style. He has been given the nickname ,"The Gentle Giant", by those that have met him in person. Through Jubal, Velvet goes to to the 14 time World Champion, Hill's Perfection. (Hill's Perfection's registered name was Reyclif Mid-Merry #561395 and that was not changed; he was only campaigned as Hills Perfection). Sun's Merry Man, the only offspring by Hill's Perfection to reproduce, was owned by and stood at the Double Diamond Ranch for many years.
Velvet's dam, SCW Delight's Zephyr, is directly by Delight's Midnight Legend aka "Gabe", a grand-son of both Midnight Sun and Sun's Delight D. He shares a sire with Tsuniah Sunday, the WGC lite-shod gelding and ambassador of the TWH breed to Germany. He was bred and raised by Kathy Stumph of Amazing Grace Tennessee Walkers. Kathy owned him until he was 18 years old and she retired from breeding and selected Slush Creek Walkers for his final home. There, he was bred to Velvet's dam, SCW Delight's Zephyr. She was out of Zephyr Dakota Breeze aka "Breezy" was owned by Slush Creek Walkers since she was a yearling and they also owned her dam, Dakota Dixie Flash, until her death at the age of 24 years old. Breezy has exceptional bone and muscle with a nice smooth gait. "Her real claim to fame is brains! Breezy is smart, she can open gates and doors, she figured out when we loaded her in the trailer she was going to work so she would walk right up to the back of the trailer and lay down! One time she lay down half in half out of the trailer but that hurt so she didn’t do it again. If you’re not on the ball she will get ahead of you." Breezy also boasts Allen’s Gold Zephyr still on her pedigree!
