This 2002 bald face overo stallion is out of French Broad Lunar Eclipse. His first foals in 2006 are both fillies and overo. One is a red bald face splash and the other a black and white medicine hat filly. Extremely slim elegant neck. His grand-sire, Flying W Farms Legionaire, was highlighted in the February, 2003, issue of Miniature Horse Vide, as a legendary sire for producing refined foals with a tiny head, enormous eyes, level top line and natural championship “presence”. The mark of a truly great sire is his ability to pass on the essential characteristics of refinement, conformation, balance and class, and Legionaire was such a stallion.
He is considered to be one of the greatest broodmare sires that ever lived, and his celebrated daughters possess the refinement, elegance and inherited beauty that reproduces itself in their foals. Many old and new breeders covet the "Legionaire" pedigree in their breeding stock as it crosses well with other bloodlines to consistently produce refined foals with his tiny head, enormous eyes, level top line and natural champion "presence". At the time of his death, from one registry alone, Legionaire had sired 128 foals, was the grandsire of over 500, and great-grandsire of over 700. There is no doubt that the entire miniature horse industry will continue to benefit from the genetic impact of this great producer for many generations to come. Those who are lucky enough to own any of his progeny possess a treasure to be cherished. This grand old man will be dearly missed, but will continue to live on through his legacy of superior quality miniature horses all over the world.
