Stallion Service Contract
This perfect perlino is the product of two
phenomenal horses. Both of his parents are tremendously athletic,
supremely intelligent, naturally smooth gaited, people-pleasing and just
all around wonderful horses. He is EXACTLY what we had hoped to get - a
perlino colt to keep as a stallion prospect.
Midas has common sense and an honest approach to everything. He is
respectful of his handler's space. Before his knee injury I rode him with
my then three year old son, Gavin, on my lap. We rode down busy roads
passing barking dogs, motorcycles, tractors, semi trucks, and more and
Midas doesn't flinch. He just carried us along as smooth as silk - I
couldn't ask for anything more. In the field, Midas follows Gavin around
and nuzzles him. Just like his Gambler, he's fascinated by children and
knows to be gentle. We rode Midas alone and in groups with mares and
geldings and he took excellent care of us. You would hardly know he was a
Midas has exhibited a
true gait since day one. He has a perfectly timed rack and a true 3-beat
canter. He is tremendously athletic and agile. As a foal, he looked like a
little reigning horse - spinning, sliding, and cantering around. He
retained that agility and athleticism as an adult horse.
excellent conformation. He has excellent bone and muscle without being
coarse or unrefined. His back is strong and short, enabling him to collect
with ease. He has his sire's beautifully arched neck and natural
"waterspout arch" to his tail. Midas has a beautiful head with a broad
forehead, soft eyes and his sires tapered muzzle with fluted nostrils. His
hooves are as hard and strong as a mustang's, just like his sire's.
"Midas" for the mythical king whose touch turned all into gold. Midas is a
genetic goldmine (literally!) He has been DNA tested by UC Davis and is
homozygous for cream (CrCr) and the agouti (AA.) This means that we can
offer a GUARANTEE of a gold (palomino or buckskin) foal from bay, black
and chestnut mares. Color possibilities:
Black/Bay/Chestnut mares: palomino and
Smokey Black/Buckskin/Palomino mares:
palomino, buckskin, cremello, or perlino foals.
Smokey Cream/Perlino/Cremello mares: cremello
or perlino foals.
Classic/Amber/Gold champagne mares: palomino,
buckskin, amber, gold, gold cream, or amber cream foals.
are a unique blend of working and show lines. On his sire's side he
carries the blood of the western working horses from Calvin Miller's ranch
on top and the eastern bred old-time show horses on the bottom. Midas' dam
boasts industry greats Pride's Generator, The Touch, Ebony's Senator and
Another Grey John. Midas' bloodlines are also unique in that he does not
trace back to The Pusher C.G. This makes him an EXCELLENT outcross for
mares who are heavily Pusher bred.

We do not require that mares bred
to Midas be registered, we judge each horse as an
individual, not by papers. We would rather breed a
high-quality gaited un-papered mare than a low quality
papered mare. However, foals with papers are more valuable
than those without. For that reason, Midas is registered
with several registries.
#200710050 *Foals out of registered KMSHA/SMHA mares are
eligible for temporary papers until proven under saddle,
at which time they will be inspected for gait and
disposition and given permanent papers. The mare and
gelding books are still open.
#20700235 *Only accepts foals out of registered and
bloodtyped TWHBEA mares.
*Accepts foals out of TWHBEA, CRTWH, or unregistered
purebred Tennessee Walking Horse mares only. SOUND
HORSES ONLY. No padded, heavy shod, or sored horses are
accepted into this registry.
# *Accepts gaited foals out of registered gaited parents
of any breed. Any good-quality gaited horse is eligible
for registration for a limited time.
Midas' stud fee is $375/LCFG and mare care is
$15/day or $200/mo (pasture board). We are located in
Locust Dale, Virginia. Live cover only.
