."Fifth Annual Horse Sale in November of 1965 at the West Texas Fairgrounds in Abilene... Joker B sold for $26,500."
"Joker B was the unexpected result of 52 years of planned breeding by Jack and Dan Casement at their ranch in northern Colorado. Blue Vitrol, a blue roan mare the Casements had purchased from Coke Roberds produced a foal with a loud blanket on his hips. The Casements were in the Quarter Horse business. Spotted horses were not welcome at that time in the Quarter Horse world. The sire of this spotted colt was Red Dog – P-55 in the fledgling Quarter Horse Stud Book. Blue Vitrol provided the Appaloosa influence for her foal. Vitriol’s dam was a mare named Leopard. Leopard was by the great Quarter Horse foundation sire, Old Fred."
"*During the bidding (at the horse sale), Carl Miles made an announcement. He stated that he would be willing to sell Joker B into syndication. In his announcement Carl stated that this old horse could still be used to rope calves at age 25. ...the great stallion on November 20, 1965 sold for $26,500.00, a very high price for a 25 year old horse, to a four man syndicate. Carl Miles was a member of that syndicate.

Foaled in Kentucky around 1843, Steel Dust descendants were valued for their speed and were sought by cowboys for use on ranches. Thus, cow horses were often called "Steeldusts."
They were heavy-muscled horses, marked with small ears, a big jaw, remarkable intelligence and lightning speed up to a quarter of a mile. Steel Dust was an American Quarter Horse. He and his kind would achieve fame in proportions every bit as magnificent as that of the mythical Pegasus.”

LEO QUARTER HORSE, 1940 Leo The Great
Leo, a 1940 stallion sired by Joe Reed II and out of Little Fanny, is by any measurement, one of the all time great sires of the Quarter Horse world. Displaying considerable speed himself by winning 20 of his 22 starts, it was his reputation as a sire that made him famous. In addition to speed, Leo’s foals exhibited excellent conformation, Athletic ability, quiet dispositions and common sense. Famous Leo bred cutting horses include Peppy San, Mr. San Peppy and King’s Pistol, and an AQHA Champion reining horse, Okie Leo.
When he was being returned to the States, he suffered the first serious mishap that cost him any further racing fame and almost cost him his life. The trailer in which he was being hauled turned over…
Things were looking up for Leo until Rowe sold his ranch in Oklahoma and moved his operations to New Mexico. The stallion made the trip in a makeshift stall in a railroad car, most of which was filled with household goods.
Somewhere enroute, this car, with Leo sandwiched between bedsprings and other household fixtures, was lost and long overdue at its destination. When it was finally found and the door of the box car was opened, there stood the lion-hearted Leo with his head thrust through the bedsprings and practically covered by other articles that had been thrown into his stall as the car was shunted around in various railway terminals.
It was a badly bruised, hungry, and thirsty stallion that was rescued from the debris; and for a second time it took tenderness and skill to nurse him back to health and usefulness.
He received yet another severe injury. This time it was a breeding accident,… n 1947, Bud Warren, who had been more or less playing around in the horse business for a number of years, decided to purchase the ailing stallion from Gene Moore.
Leading horsemen called Warren the “biggest chump in horse business” when he paid $2,500 for a horse so badly crippled that his owner had considered destroying him. …Leo is past 20 years of age, he is still the No. 1 stallion on the Warren Quarter Horse Breeding Farm, and the current breeding fee is $2,500….
Leo the Great has had more than 400 sons and daughters registered with the American Quarter Horse Association.
Wimpy…received the honorable and respectable P-1 in AQHA’s first stud book.
See our mares - Wakon Serene Snow crossed with Wimpy x2.
Wimpy was born on the King Ranch in South Texas. Sired by Solis and out of Panda, Wimpy was a grandson of Old Sorrel on both the top and bottom. Old Sorrel was the foundation sire for the ranch, and was bred by noted breeder George Clegg.
King Ranch, Wimpy went to work as a sire. He produced 174 registered foals, the majority of which stayed on the King Ranch. However, the few that left the ranch left a lasting impact.
Wimpy P-1 – The AQHA was founded in 1940. Its founders had decided that the first stallion recorded in their studbook would be the horse who took home the title of Grand Champion Stallion at the 1941 Fort Worth Fat Stock Show. That horse was King Ranch’s Wimpy.
The chestnut stallion produced sons and daughters that went onto produce AQHA Champions. A few of Wimpy’s better known progeny were Lauro, Silver Wimpy, Wimpy II and Bill Cody.
In 1958, Kleberg gave Wimpy to Clegg, a tribute to the fine horseman. Kleberg hoped the 21-year-old stallion would finish out his days in green pastures.
