Carolina parading with General Castleman Carolina and General Castleman racking on!
Carolina only had three registered foals and two were by Bourbon King. Her stallion son, Torpedo, was foaled in 1915 when Carolina was 16 years old. He sired quite a few horses, including Magnolia's Ann Rutledge. Shown as just plain Ann Rutledge, she was the 1949 World's 3-Gaited Grand Champion.

Royal Wave Ottawa's Miss Vanity
In 1981, I got to accompany these two lovely ladies to Lakeview Farm in
Washington Pennsylvania to be bred to Penny's Superior Stonewall.
Buddy's sister Miss Vanity and I both produced in 1982.
Penny however, didn't catch, and she made a return trip to Lakeview
and had her colt in 1983. That's me in the middle wearing my sun-goggles!
WGC CH Lady Carrigan
She was sired by Society Rex and out of Mountain Raven (BHF)
Raven Wing, unlike her mother, had quite a few colts, including show and breeding stallion Harlem Spats Waller (love the name) and her CH status daughter, CH Carrigan's Gift. After a successful show career in both 3-Gaited and Fine Harness, CH Carrigan's Gift retired to the broodmare ranks and raised a number of babies. She had a daughter named Mia Carrissima by CH Foxfire's Prophet. Mia Carrissima is the dam of current two times World's Champion Wild Carrissima. Seven generations removed from our subject, Carolina, but nonetheless under her influence.

There was a reason Carolina was beloved by her owner, General Castleman. She was far more than just a pretty face, and she lives on in the pedigrees of great horses today.
6/3/13 Here's an update. I found a couple more pictures
of Carolina's descendants.
Status Symbol X Raven Wing
Raven Wing was the daughter of CH Wing Commander
and out of CH Lady Carrigan.

Harlem Globetrotter X Raven Wing
Both of these handsome breeding stallions were black,
just like Carolina.
1/9/14 Located another photo of one of Carolina's descendants. This is a picture of Lady Carrigan and her only foal, Raven Wing. Raven Wing was by CH Wing Commander and foaled in 1963.
Lady Carrigan died the same year at age 15.
