Little Ginger EVM

Sire—Prime Time TBM

            Bred by Sherry Campbell of Wisconsin, this 1990 chestnut mare is sired by Prime Time TBM who was by Rimlo Black Valiant, by Jubilee’s-Heyboy by Black Jig by Flyhawk. Prime Time was also bred in Wisconsin, foaled in 1982. He had fourteen registered get. His sire, the 1971 black Rimlo Black Valiant, who had 114 registered get, came from the longtime Rimlo program which bred many good old type Morgans. Jubilee’s Hey-Boy was a stout, deep, good looking Morgan. Black Jig, foaled in 1946, had only 16 registered get but they were all from mares with good foundation pedigrees. Black Jig’s sire was Flyhawk, black and handsome, who had so many get who went on into breeding. Flyhawk was by Go Hawk, who was of the Old Midwest Family, and out of Florette, a mare by Knox Morgan and out of a Daniel Lambert descent mare. The dam of Black Jig was Blue Roan mare, aka Bonnie Blue, (unregistered), dam of quite a few good Morgans in the Midwest. She was by Sentiment who was by Major Reade (Charles Reade x mare by Jubilee de Jarnette) and out of Senata, one of Brunk’s Old Vermont foundation mares. The dam of Blue Roan mare was Roany, foaled about 1920 and was by Baron Review by Baron Wilkes, trotting horses who had some Morgan behind them. Her dam was a black mare going back to some Black Hawk blood.

            Jubilee’s-Heyboy was out of Hillview Jubilee who was by Fudge Royale, 1947 sire of 22 registered get many of whom went into the breeding ranks. He was by Tarman, by Tarron, by Tiffany, the Government bred stallion that Brunk acquired late in his breeding program. Tarron was out of African Maid (Allen King x Knox & Lambert mare) Tarman was out of De Ann, that excellent producing mare, who was by Juzan (Jubilee King x Liza Jane). The dam of De Ann is Black Dee, excellent dam of 18 produce with many of those breeding on. Black Dee was out of the great producing mare Sentola, full sister to Jubilee King. Black Dee was sired by Herodon by Go Hawk. Black Dee is also the dam of Justin Dart who appears elsewhere in the pedigree of Little Ginger.

            Fudge Royale was out of one of the Illawana mares. The Illawana program of Illinois was based entirely on the early stock of J C Brunk. The Illawana horses became known for excellent working conformation and excellent sensible temperament. They were often beautiful horses, but some of them were plainer. But overall, these are excellent Morgan to have in a pedigree. The dam of Fudge Royale was Illawana Patsy Red by Captain Red who was by Juban by Jubilee King. Juban was out of Jeanne by Knox Reade (Knox Morgan x Mrs. Lewis—Charles Reade). Jeanne was out of Jean Ann by Sentiment. Jean Ann’s dam was Neoshia by a son of Dan L. by Chetco. The dam of Captain Red was Gizea, another of those excellent Brunk mares, who was by Go Hawk and out of Liza Jane. Liza Jane was a true Blue Hen mare, producing ever so many excellent breeding offspring. She was by Knox Morgan and out of Double Daisy who was by Allen Franklin and out of Senata.  Illawana Patsy Red was out of Gildia by Go Hawk and out of Benita by Knox Morgan and out of Ben’s Daisy (Ben Franklin, by Daniel Lambert, x Daisy, another of Brunk’s Old Vermont foundation mares).

            It can be seen, that except for the Government Farm sire line, Fudge Royale’s pedigree is truly royal old Brunk breeding with the same old Brunk Morgans appearing over and over.

            The dam of Hillview Jubilee was Lizza, 1955 black mare from the Cross Ranch of Wyoming. Her sire was the excellent stallion, Warhawk (Flyhawk x Sentola) and her dam was that lovely palomino Yellow Girl who had so many lovely produce in her image. She was by Glider, by Jubilee King, and she was out of Buck by Imperial. Lizza was dam of some good Hillview prefix Morgans and also Prince Cobra, a good sire. The Cross Ranch bred tough working Morgans.

            Jubilee’s-Heyboy has a strong heritage of the old Brunk Morgans. Then he was bred to his own dam, Hillview Jubilee to get Rimlo Black Valiant. This was closer inbreeding then even J C Brunk ever used, but it seems to have worked very well in this case, doubling up on the same excellent horses in the pedigree.

            Rimlo Black Valiant was then bred to Hylee’s Justintime, a mare also with the heritage of J C Brunk but coming down through some different Brunk horses and with an addition of some other good old blood. The Hylee prefix was that of Robert V Behling of Wisconsin and he bred a lot of very good Morgans based on the old blood available to him.

            Justintime was sired by Hylee’s Justa Parade, a handsome and deep bodied horse sired by Justin Dart who was noted for his baroque looks. Justin Dart was by the great Squire Burger who beat Quarter Horses at their distance of ¼ mile in races in Arizona and also worked cattle there. He later went east to become the foundation for Mabel Owen’s program where she also rode him sidesaddle and hunt seat. Probably his most famous offspring is Whippoorwill Duke, that model of Morgan looks and temperament. His pedigree is classic J C Brunk. Both his parents are out of that great producing mare Liza Jane. His sire, Juzan, is by Jubilee King. His dam, Nella, is by Allen King, the full brother to Penrod, sire of Jubilee King. Nella herself was another great producing mare. And the dam lines of the males in the pedigree were all great mares. Brunk started with great mares and bred more.

            The dam of Justin Dart was Black Dee, found behind Rimlo Black Valiant. She was also the dam of the wonderful Congo. The dam of Black Dee was another of those grand Brunk mares, being Sentola. Black Dee’s sire was Herodon by Go Hawk (sire of Flyhawk). The dam of Herodon was Galva, by Billy Herod by Herod, the same Herod as behind Go Hawk. Galva’s dam was Chista by Chetco by Ben Franklin by Daniel Lambert. Chista’s dam was of the Old Vermont blood.

            The dam of Hylee’s Justa Parade was Easter Parade by Parade. Parade was the very famous stallion owned by J Cecil Ferguson of Rhode Island. He toured in the 1960’s with the Royal Lipizzaners of Austria and sired many good Morgans with the Broadwall prefix. His sire was that baroque stallion Cornwallis (Sealect x Cornwall Lass) who brings in more of the Old Vermont blood along with some Daniel Lambert. Parade’s dam was Mansphyllis, a lovely and typey mare out of the great Brunk bred Paragraph, she by Jubilee King and out of Nella. Mansphyllis was by Mansfield.

            The dam of Easter Parade was Corrine, sired by Congo, who was out of Black Dee. Congo was a big, handsome and correct horse and is a source of excellent rear ends even to today. His sire was Tarron by Tiffany and out of African Maid (discussed previously). Corrine’s dam was Cynthia, by Pride of King by King Shenandoah, by Shenandoah by Bennington. The dam of King Shenandoah was Violet King, inbred Old Midwest Family. Pride of King was out of Rarette (Jubilee King x Nella—that was a proven cross). The dam of Cynthia was Cinnamon Doll by Cinnamon Lad by Plains King, that excellent Kansas bred son of the Sellman bred Romanesque. Plains King was out of one of the excellent Elmer Brown bred mares sired by Linsley. Cinnamon Lad was out of yet another Brunk mare, this one Allana (dam of many good breeding Morgans) by Allen King and out of Ruby Reade by Charles Reade. The dam of Cinnamon Doll was Babe, unregistered, by King Shenandoah. The second dam was Peggy by Duke, a half Morgan, and the third dam was Pal, of Morgan type. It can be seen that there is a line of breeders who stuck with Morgans and took each generation further forward.

            Jumping down to the next part of the pedigree, note that the bottom mare line of Hylee’s Justintime goes to Cyanna, full sister to Corrine, thus repeating that excellent blood. The dam of Justintime is Hylee’s Jacktop by Hylee’s Top Brass, a handsome stallion of true Morgan looks. Top Brass was out of Dolly Mae, by Captain Red (discussed above) and out of Golden Honey who was by the grand and baroque Winterset of the old Midwest Family. Golden Honey’s dam was by Linsley and out of a mare with the Old Midwest Family lines The sire of Hylees Top Brass was Max Hi-Ho Kid, by Quizkid, by Ulysses (Bennington x Artemisia). Ulysses seems to have done a better job with Quizkid then he did with some of his other get as Quizkid was a better horse then many of his half siblings, although some of that certainly can be attributed to his dam Glady who produced many excellent Morgans. Her dam was Lady Sealect who was by Sealect (Sir Ethan Allen x Bell Marea—a pedigree of Old Vermont with Daniel Lambert) and out of a mare by Knox Morgan. Glady was by Mansfield which brought in another cross to the great Old Vermont mare Artemisia, dam of Mansfield.

            The dam of Max Hi-Ho Kid was Hyray, a LU Sheep Co ranch mare sired by Highview King by King de Jarnette and out of Sentola. Highview King, like his sire, was a stylish, correct Morgan. King de Jarnette was by Jubilee King and out of Deura, by Senator Knox and out of Penala, (Penrod x Galva). Luray was by Plains King and out of a Flyhawk daughter.

            And so Hylee’s Justintime’s pedigree continues the theme of Rimlo Black Valiant with plenty of excellent Brunk blood. And this is continued in the dam of Little Ginger EVM as her dam, Hylee’s Justinstyle is out of Hylee’s Justa Parade so that Ginger is the result of breeding the grandchild of a good stallion to the child of that same good stallion, in this case Hylee’s Justa Parade.

            The dam of Hylee’s Justinstyle, Top Brass Ideal is by Hylee’s Top Brass, also sire of Hylee’s Jacktop, dam of Hylee’s Justintime. Top Brass Ideal was out of Laroann, another Brunk based mare. Her sire was Lamont (Juzan x Nella). Both of his parents were out of Liza Jane. His sire was by Jubilee King. Laroann was out of Lady Rhoflin, Illawana Rubin (Juban x Gosette). Juban was by Jubilee King and out of Jeanne (Knox Morgan and Charles Reade ). Gosette was by Go Hawk and out of Daisette, dam of Jubilee King among others. Lady Rhoflinn was out of Sentide by Night Tide, who was by Tiffany and out of Glenalla who was by Allen King and out of Ruby Reade by Charles Reade. Sentola was the dam of Sentide.

            Little Ginger EVM is the result of breeding a grandson of Hylee’s Justa Parade to a daughter of Hylee’s Justa Parade. Plus, in each case, Justa Parade was bred to a daughter of Hylee’s Top Brass. And on the sire line side, Rimlo Black Valiant was the result of breeding a mare to her son. And there is all the closebreeding behind all the Brunk horses in each generation. But closebreeding is a tool to use carefully as it can increase the undesirable genes also. It must be used with knowledge and the willingness to cull. J C Brunk was a master of this intricate dance and bred Morgans with strong Morgan traits that passed the test of other knowledgeable horsemen—both breeders and users of working horses. Little Ginger has a very intense Brunk pedigree to bring that heritage down to this century.
