2/9/14 Stonewall King

2/9/14 Since we've reached the "S's" it seems reasonable to review Stonewall King and some of his get.  He was foaled in 1920 and sired his last colts in 1950, so he was a fixture in Missouri  literally for decades.  Although he had many stallion sons, there aren't many lines tracing directly back to him anymore.  However, he was a dominant stallion and he appears in pedigrees today by one means or another.

Stonewall King and his long time owner, Murray Cason.

Stallion sons included Stonewall's Main Event, Rita's Star, Starheart Peavine, Leslie Lane's Grand Slam, Prince Starheart and Star Recruit.  Some of his best show colts were WGC CH Technistar, CH Starheart's Black Magic, WGC CH Carol Carson, WGC the Thunderbird and CH Love Note.

Stonewall's Main Event by Starheart Stonewall was Stonewall King's grandson.

He was also a #1 ranked breeding stallion, so that was three generations in a row.  .

In addition to the horses pictured, Stonewall King sired two daughters in the Broodmare Hall of Fame, My Heart Throb (she was the dam of Sandalwood Stonewall who produced New Yorker and Sandalwood Supreme) and Bobbie Stonewall.  His daughter Stonewall Symphonette was the mother of Barham's Reality (BHF) who produced CH Home Town Hero and Local Hero.  His daughter Scarlett Harrison was 2nd dam to my husband's old broodmare Watch My Step.  Other stallion sons of note were Strutter and Jaunty King.  And don't forget his gelded son CH Oak Hill Chief, 3 time World Grand Champion 5 gaited horse who was out of a grade mare.

Stonewall King also had an interesting pedigree.  His dam was by Rex Peavine, and his 2nd dam was a half sister to Rex Peavine.  Montgomery Chief and Bourbon King were full brothers, so he had a fair amount of Chief blood, however all four of his great granddams were Denmark or Morgan bred.
