Gambler's Midas Touch WF

Midas 2011

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 2011Disposition.
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 stallion. Midas 2011

Gait.
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.

Conformation.
Midas has 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.

Guaranteed "Gold".
We named "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 buckskin foals.

  • 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.

Bloodlines.
Midas' bloodlines 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.

MidasRegistrations.
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.

  • KMSHA #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.

  • TWHBEA #20700235 *Only accepts foals out of registered and bloodtyped TWHBEA mares.

  • IPWHR *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.

  • PSHR # *Accepts gaited foals out of registered gaited parents of any breed. Any good-quality gaited horse is eligible for registration for a limited time.

Breeding Information.
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.
E-mail us or call Stephanie at 540-825-1300 for more information on breeding to Midas.
