Coalie A Streak FD is sired by the black, gaited stallion Sharthunder, a 1985 son of Wyoming Flyhawk. Wyoming Flyhawk, a 1973 son of Domino Joe was out of Lily Black, a 1955 black by Warhawk, son of Flyhawk and Sentola. Domino Joe’s sire was Stetson by Flyhawk. Thus Wyoming Flyhawk was linebred to Flyhawk, who was bred by J. C. Brunk and was by the Old Midwest Family stallion, Go Hawk, and out of a mare who was Daniel Lambert and Knox Morgan. More of the Lambert and Knox comes in with the dam of Stetson, the great producing mare Sentola, who was a full sister to Jubilee King. Yet more of this old Brunk breeding is behind the dam of Domino Joe, Midnight (1944, L U Sheep Co., Wyo.) as she was by Highview King , who was also out of Sentola, and was by King de Jarnette (Jubilee King x Deura). Deura was by Senator Knox for more of Knox Morgan’s blood and out of a daughter of Penrod who was the sire of Jubilee King. The dam of Midnight, Lupine (1940, L U Sheep Co.), was a granddaughter of Flyhawk. She also carried the ancestry of Elmer Brown’s breeding being by Plains King (foaled in 1936, bred by Heibert Bros. of Kansas) and out of a daughter of Linspar. Even though Plains King was registered as being bred by the Heibert Bros., his breeding is from Elmer Brown, who, along with J C Brunk and Richard Sellman, was one of the great master breeders of this breed. Plains King was sired by Romanesque, Sellman bred, and out of a Linsley daughter. Linspar was also by Linsley.
noted previously, the dam of
Wyoming Flyhawk, Lily Black, was by Warhawk. Her dam was by the Jubilee
son Glider. Thus Wyoming Flyhawk has an impressive amount of the old
breeding behind him. Most of the horses behind Wyoming Flyhawk were
bred to be
true using horses, either by J C Brunk or by various western ranchers.
Black and her dam and the second dam were all from George Cross &
In looks, Domino Joe had more of the looks of his bottom mare line which went back to the LU Sheep Co. mares coming from the son of Dan Patch (ATR). Some of his get also had this look while others had the baroque Brunk look of the rest of his pedigree. However, all of this line are known for their wonderfully kind and sensible temperaments. Wyoming Flyhawk also had less of the old baroque Morgan look and has been a popular sports horse sire with many get fitting the image desired in the open sports horse world. Wyoming Flyhawk was mostly of the old Brunk breeding with the same horses being repeated over and over. It is this level of careful close breeding that set the traits for solid using horses.
dam of Sharthunder is also from
ranch breeding. She is Triple S Ebonella a black 1977 mare from the
program in northwest
Correll, foaled in 1965
& bred by Wallace Mills of northwest Nebraska, was a tall, solid
handsome horse, but not as typey as some, and was sired by the great
Correll (1940, Nebraska), an upstanding correct stallion sired by Will
(1935, Iowa) who was pure linebred Old Midwest blood with many crosses
Hawk. This family came from Morgans who went to the Midwest, especially
Lady Rockwood (1951, Wallace Mills) is the dam of Blackwood Correll. She was by Shenandoah Red by Red Correll. Shenandoah Red was out of Shenandoah Queen who was out of Rarette, a daughter of Jubilee King and Nella. Nella was out of the mare Liza Jane, a true Blue Hen mare who produced many excellent breeding horses, both sons and daughters alike. Nella herself was also a Blue Hen mare and was by Allen King, full brother to Penrod, the sire of Jubilee King. Again, this is another example of how J C Brunk danced the intricate dance of closebreeding so very well.
Rockwood was out of May
Rockwood, another Elmer Brown mare, but she was by the Government
stallion Rockwood, whom Brown had later in his career. Rockwood was by
central states have a long
history of breeding good using Morgans. Many Morgans were bred in
dam of Coalie A Streak FD is Westcrest
Bunny, 1963 ch. mare. The Westcrest prefix was used by R. G.
Quicksilver was out of Ailsa, by Senator Graham. He was by the good
Senator Knox (Knox Morgan x Senata) and out of Fanita. Fanita was by
Government bred Tiffany (
dam of Westcrest Silver was
Mountain Queen, another LU Sheep mare. She was by Plains King, bred in
Westcrest Silver carries an intense heritage of Brunk breeding along with that of Elmer Brown. All were being bred to be true working Morgans.
The dam of Westcrest Bunny was Scarlett Mite, 1957 mare bred by Ramul Dvarishkis. Her sire was Jubilee’s Quicksilver, making her a half sibling to Westcrest Silver so that Westcrest Bunny was the result of half siblings. Scarlett Mite’s dam was Copperflame Girl. Copperflame Girl was also bred by Dvarishkis and she was by Prince Dandy and out of Mountain Queen. Prince Dandy was bred by Eddie Dvarishkis, and owned by Ramul Dvarishkis. His sire was King De Jarnette (seen behind some of the LU Sheep Co. horses). His dam was Box K Scarlett, a 1942 mare bred by Antlers Ranch of Wyoming. Her sire was Plains King and her dam was Syble, an unregistered mare by Night Tide and the second dam was Jane, also unregistered, but sired by Flyhawk. This was all the same horses that LU Sheep Co. used. One can assume that the Antlers Ranch and LU Sheep Co. were neighbors as other Antler Ranch horses were also from the LU Ranch breeding. This entire line comes from ranches that mostly ignored the mares; they were left to fend for themselves on the range so only the tough ones survived.
The dam of Copperflame Girl was Mountain Queen, an LU Sheep Co. mare sired by Plains King and out of Spruce, by Flyhawk, out of Sox who was by Linspar and out of a Flyhawk daughter. The same horses keep appearing in the pedigree of Scarlett Mite. And they are the same horses behind Westcrest Silver, so that Westcrest Bunny was very much the product of close breeding and breeding done by ranchers who wanted the best of using horses and who had the mares and young stock living under natural conditions.
Coalie A Streak FD has a pedigree with solid ranch breeding and some of the older programs close up (note that her dam was foaled in 1963). The same horses repeat over and over in her pedigree and each section has much closebreeding. There are ever so many excellent horses behind this mare.
