Highlands and Harlems

5/21/13  Looking through my files I came upon a meager amount of horses whose names started with an "H".  Harrison Chief was so old it was merely a drawing.  Hideaway's Firefly Supreme was pictured in my 4/9/13 post. Harrodsburg was pictured on 4/20/13.   That left a few horses with Highland as their prefix. Meager dwindled to sparse. Not much to go on, so the search continued.  Harlems!  Of course.  There are a bunch. 

Highland Dale
Liberty Dale X Marian Higland by Lord Highland, he was foaled in 1943.

His movie star good looks landed him is movies like Black Beauty and TV shows like Fury. 

Highland Denmark
foaled in 1890, he was sired by Black Squirrel

Two of his daughters were BHF, Lena Jemison was the dam of American Born, and Japanette was the dam of another BHF, Kathryn Haines. 

Highland Squirrel King
Here is another oldie foaled in 1899 and sired by Forest King.  He also produced two daughters that made it to the BHF.  Hazel Simmons produced Anacacho Princess (BHF), the dam of Beau Fortune and Beau Gallant, both pictured back on 1/29/13.  A full sister to Hazel Simmons was Sally Cameron (BHF), dam of CH Anacacho Shamrock. 

The youngest of the Highlands mentioned here was foaled 70 years ago.  The Harlems mentioned here began with Harlem Globetrotter in 1980.  This wonderful stallion just passed away last year.

Harlem Globetrotter
New Yorker X Putting on Airs (BHF) by Mr. Magic Man

Harlem Globetrotter was a World's Champion, winning the 5-gaited stallion stake twice.  He had a wonderful career as a sire. 

CH Harlem Town
Harlem Globetrotter X CH Town Dance by Yorktown

Also a World's Champion, he was a winner in the Amateur 3-gaited division.  He has sired Champions Brookhill's King of Kool and Ninety Eight Degrees.

Harlem Spats Waller
Harlem Globetrotter X Raven Wing by Wing Commander

He traces back to Carolina (see her page on 4/18/13) and CH Wing Commander appears three times on his registration papers.  Can't find his picture, but it is somewhere, so I'll keep searching.  *note: I found his picture and put it with the Carolina post*

Harlem Globemaster
Harlem Globetrotter X Tashi's Gift by Kourageous Kalu

This stallion stands in Texas at Blue Bonnet Farm.  .

Harlem's Hot Dice
Harlem Globetrotter X Dice Girl by Genius Bourbon King

His daughter CH Audrey Hepburn is breathtaking.
