Toad HIll's the Great Gatsby

Toad Hill's the Great Gatsby (AMHA/AMHR) has been the herd stallion at Toad Hill for a number of years. While he was young, I was not able to show him, so late in his third year he went for one months worth of training and was shown only once at Rantoul, IL. For a three year old in his first show we were delighted with his placing (Reserve Grand Champion) and even more his manners while at the show with all those mares around. I am tempted to show him this year in aged stallion (2008) in a couple local shows if I do not sell him
Gatsby is a 32 inch tall dapple grey pinto, foaled in 2001. Two of his foals (Picasso and Phantom) are both Multi-Color Top Ten Champions.

Sire: S Bar P's Sir Prince (32.25", black) by Stout's Blackberry (30.50", black) out of S Bar P's Missy Misty of Marion (33.00, black)
Dam: Koch's My Angel Baby (32.50", chesnut pinto) out of Little Hoof's Midget Mite (27.25, bay) by Koch's Little Brandy (36.00", chesnut)
Currently almost all the fillies at Toad Hill are by Gatsby, so we purchased Rebel. With Rebel (black and white tobiano stallion) and Rusty (overo stallion) we have thought of selling Gatsby.
