April 1949 National Horseman

1/27/14  The April 1949 issue of National Horseman had a roadster on the cover and an entire section on the development of roadsters.  It also had a lot of stallion ads.  Here are a few of them.

American Masterpiece
American Born x Edna May's Delight by Edna May's King
He was bred by Wm M.M. Robinson of Nawbeek Farm in Pennsylvania.
At the time of the ad, he was owned by Ward Acres in New York, but was
later owned by George Gwinn.

He only sired 15 colts and stood in Virginia..

Kalarama Colonel
Kalarama Rex X Edith Gatley (BHF)
He was bred by Kalarama Farms, but purchased as a yearling by Ike Lanier of Grasslands Farm
and owned by him for the rest of his life.

King of Rose-a-Lee
Royal Kalarama X Joy Light by American Born
When crossed with Lucy Kilmer (BHF), this pair produced 15 colts,
including CH Miss Helen, CH Look at me from Rose-a-Lee, CH Rose of Fremar, 
Knollandaire and CH Miss Lib.  He was owned by Rose-A-Lee Farms
in Harrodsburg, Kentucky.

Lord Baltimore
AKA Rex Lee Lewis
Maid's Rex by Rex Peavine x Lina Lee Lewis (granddaughter of Bourbon King)
As Rex Lee Lewis, he sired Conowingo. 
He was also a half brother to Fiery Crags, WGC 3gaited horse in 1935.

Marshall Genius
King's Genius X Young Lady McDonald by Marshall McDonald
He sired a few colts from the early 1040's thru the early 1960's.

Rex Story

Veiled Prophet

Mrs.Weil ( owner of Vanity), Kalarama Farm, C. Leake Fain, Chester Caldwell 
and finally ended up with Walter Burke.

American Bourbon
American Born X Marjorie Ann by Bourbon King
He stood right here in Michigan at Dama Farm.
The site of this farm in Howell Michigan is now a condo.  
He was grandsire of my husband's broodmare Sis.  

Grassland's Jackpot
Kalarama Colonel X Grassland's Dream by Moreland Peavine
World Champion 2 yr old Fine Harness horse.
He was bred at Ike Lanier's Grassland Farms but had just been sold to
Oman Stables in Nashville Tennessee.  He was supposed to be shown and
then become the herd sire for Oman Stables.  This didn't happen since Oman bred
and raised Oman's Desdemona Denmark just a few years later.

Love the ads in these magazines.  Wouldn't you love to have trailer like this one?

There was also an obituary for James K Robinson Sr, owner of Crebilly Farms in Westchester Pennsylvania.  He owned such greats as Sensation Rex, my favorite broodmare Wild Wind, and Beau Fortune.  He bred Vanity's Sensation of Crebilly and Lady Jane of Crebilly.  His son James K. Robinson Jr succeeded him as owner of Crebilly Farms, and his brother William M. M. Robinson was the owner of Nawbeek Farm in Paoli Pennsylvania.

  1. This brought back memories. I owned and showed a 3-gaited gelding in the 50's. His name was Reverie's Nutmeg. He came from Reverie Knoll Farm I believe.
