Reference: Sir Joseph's Rocker

Sir Joseph's Rocker was a talented gold champagne stallion who was well known in the Mid-Atlantic Region. He held many championship titles and produced a legacy of colorful, talented foals. Sir Joseph's Rocker passed away in 2005 he was owned and loved by Curtis and Kathy Tibbs.

"One of the best known gold champagne stallions on the east coast is Sir Joseph's Rocker #833066, a long-striding plantation show horse owned by Curtis and Kathy Tibbs of Kearneysville, West Virginia. Although bred sparingly, Rocky has sired well over a dozen gold champagne foals.

Rocky's dam, Flame's Gold Honey #782972, was sired by Wilson's Gold Flame #691191, sired by Wilson's Band O Gold #591699, sired by Wilson Strollin Gold #540189. But here's where things get tricky. Strollin Gold was by a son of Allen's Red Eagle #390381, whose mamma was the buckskin mare Hendrixson Bonnie #410642 (the grand-dam of the dark-skinned palomino stallion John A.'s Chance #491026, which means that Allen's Red Eagle was also probably dark-skinned). But Strollin Gold's dam was Kate Vaught #444177, a yellow mare by, aha!, Barker's Moonbeam, grandson of Golden Girl."
