Alright I remember reading a post by GreenWoodMinis about her stallion FLIGHT OF FANCYS GREAT EXPECTATION Being put in a new book about the great mini stallions. Congrats by the way. It got me wondering, does anyone else have any stallions being put in the book? I found out the other day my geldings sire, Mochas Cherokee Wardance & Lucky Four Look of Eagles, Both beautiful stallions I have had the pleasure to meet up close & personal, will also be in the book.

Ive got to say this looks like a very interesting book that I will deffinently get a copy of.

None of my horses will be in it, but two of my pictures will be! One of Greenwoodminis stallion and one of Stacy Score's Baylee. Guess I had better get a copy for posterity's sake!

I found a book description, with a general list, but not all 300 stallions. It looks like a worthwhile purchase! And Congrats to all of you who contributed, pictures, horses, information etc.

Appy (Woodstock North's Who's Appy Now) and his sire Dakota's Lille Guten are both in the book, I think!

Hi, everyone! Pat Elder of Rosa Roca Miniatures here. I'm the author of the book you're talking about, "Outstanding Miniature Stallions, Past and Present." I'm thrilled to see you discussing it. It turned out even better than I ever hoped!

There are over 300 stallions included, most of them on their own pages, with photos, stories, show and progeny records, pedigree, color, etc. I have a complete list of who's in it, but it's WAY too long to post here. If you want to know if your favorite sire is included, please feel free to email me at rosarocaminis@yahoo.com and I'll tell you yes or no.

There's also a long article about great foundation sires, horses who didn't have enough offspring or about whom I couldn't find enough info to give them a full page. And, an article that includes a number of great mares, and lots of other stuff.

You can order a copy from Small Horse Press, at http://www.smallhorse.com

I suggest you order at least 2, and donate one to your public library system. What a great way to promote the Miniature Horse in your area!

There will be another volume of this book in the next couple of years, and right now I'm working on "Outstanding Miniature Mares, Past and PResent." KNow any mares that should be included? Contact me!

Thanks, and I hope you all enjoy your books!

In answer to the question about what criteria was used to select the stallions, it changed a few times while I was writing it. Basically, though, I chose 1) famous foundation sires such as Rowdy, Gold Melody Boy, and FWF Little Blue Boy, 2) stallions with National Championships, or 3) stallions who are the sires of multiple Nationally-titled offspring.

There are TONS of outstanding stallions that I missed, mostly because I either didn't know about them, or didn't know who owned them. The current owners, or final owners if the horse is deceased, provided most of the information about their horse, along with a photograph and a 3 or 4 paragraph story about him. The story could be about how they acquired him, how it felt to show him, or just some interesting experience that's happened with him.

I will be writing Volume 2 of this book in a year or so, after I finish the mare book. So, for all the owners of *other* great stallions that I missed, please contact me! I'd love to have your stallion in the next book!
