Hall of Fame?
So hopefully this is in the right section, if not I apologize. But we are trying to get a horse all you appaloosa lovers should know into the hall of fame. I was up all night with Lynn and Urcula last night putting the finishing touches to the book for this year. Last year he missed out by only 2 votes. So we are hoping with all the new additions we made, he will be accepted.
Who is this horse you ask......
Foundation stallion of Wallace Barbee's Bar-B Ranch, which was home to many world and national champion Appaloosas. King Plaudit himself was retired from the show ring undefeated. Among other awards, he had earned 37 Grand Championships. He has produced many World, and National, champion sons and daughters.
Thats right.... the horse on all of you ApHC members.... membership card.
What are my connections with him.....
Lynn is a friend of my family and was also married to Wallace Barbee. And I have 3 awesomely bred appaloosas from her.
So keep your fingers crossed. We will know if he made it by Dec. 15th. And im sure to let you all know. If we didnt.... we will shoot again for next year.
Good luck and I hope you get in, please let us know what happens.
Wow I hope he gets it. Would make sense since he is on the ApHC cards....
Oh I will. And if he doesnt get in.... any one with appaloosas goin back to him.... it would be helpful if you sent pictures and info (i.e. show records, experiences with that horse, bloodlines, age, ect) for next years book. Im hoping with the extra added 50 pages this year.... will be enough.
Well they pushed the Dec 15th response back to Jan. 20th! So still waiting to hear.
We made it =)
Well... they put off and put off. But we finally got the results.
King Plaudit did make it in to the hall of Fame. Im so happy. Now all of my horses have over 10 Hall of Famers.
King Plaudit was a great horse and Appaloosa sire-- congrats!
Just one correction though-- Orren Mixer was commissioned to do a painting of King Plaudit by his owners. The horse on the ApHC membership card is not King Plaudit-- it is from a painting by Orren Mixer commissioned by the Appaloosa Horse Club, and it is not a specific horse, but an "idealized" image. The stance and build Mr. Mixer portrayed ARE similar.
Here is the ApHC painting on the left, and the King Plaudit painting on the right--
Congratulations on King Plaudit's being added to the Hall of Fame!!! He was an outstanding horse and sire.
