A Lad N Magic, We call him Gunny. 2009 Stallion.

Gunny is everything I have been looking for in a stud for years. I love his conformation, color, temperament and movement. He won the National Championships in weanling colts in 2009, He was Reserve National Champion Hunter In Hand Yearling stallions in 2010. He lead the Nation in points  for the same class and was Reserve high Point Yearling stallion.  He earned his Yearling Lounge Line ROM and was top ten at the Worlds in Hunter Type Lounge line. 2012 Gunny won National Champion Hunter In hand 2 and 3 year old stallions. Gunny will stand to outside mares for a stud fee of $750.

He is beautiful inside and out.

Anthony Leier did a great job showing Gunny for me at the 2012 Nationals.

He is straight legged, balanced, athletic, correct, and drop dead georgeous! He has the movement too!

These eyes say multitudes about him. He is intellegent, kind, willing to please, gentle and attractive.

Sired by Lads Strawman. He comes from a along line of Champion Halter and performance horses

Gunny and his full brother,  stood Champion and Reserve Hunter In Hand Stallions, 2 and 3 year olds at the 2012 National Championships. Showing  consisitancy of type and breeding genitics.

He looks great from any angle.

Yearling picture taken at the 2010 Nationals

His is so nice to be around. Mares have backed into him, urinated right next to him at shows and he hasn't even twitched wrong.

Pictured as a yearling here.

Gunny sired two beautiful fillies in his first foal crop this year. Both regular papered appaloosas. Friendly and sweet temperments on both.

Photos are on the foal page. They both  started under saddle as nice as you please. Just rode right off with no trouble. Both are willing to please and easy to train.

We took delivery of Gunny at the Venis, Florida show in March of 2010. Rose showed him at those shows and this picture was taken then.

Gunny has been a winner in Texas, Florida, Illionois, Indiana, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Kentucky, West Virginia, Oklahoma and Ohio.

I look for correct conformation, athletic ability, temperment, genetic color producing ability without grey or roaning factors and that something extra.

He has it all and more!

2012 National Judges agree, he is a great mover.
