7/10/16 Longview's Supreme

Longview's Supreme was sired by the great Valley View Supreme and out of  A Sheer Delight BHF.  He was a chestnut foal with no markings, and was born in 1960.  Always the inquisitve colt, he was good natured and friendly.  One trait got him into trouble and the second saved him.  An eye injury as a yearling took away all possibility of being shown, but with his strong pedigree, and great disposition, it was decided to breed him to some mares.  While his results were good, mare owners stayed away from Longview's Supreme.  There were other advertised stallions that drew more mares, so it wasn't until Lonview's Supreme was an older stallion in his late teens that he started getting the recognition he deserved.

    1. He's pretty modern by my standards, but I'll see if I can come up with something. Did you see the post on Desert's Supreme Admiral? They were bred by the same farm.
