Rocky is a grandson of the legendary Boones Little Buckeroo, and has continued to impress in South Africa, being placed Supreme Champion Miniature Horse at both Horse of the Year and Tswabac Shows. He has sired a number of very fine foals in South Africa and now stands in Knysna at stud to our own and approved mares.
   

OMH ROCKY’S FANTASTIC
Blue Roan Stallion born Nov 07

By Twin creeks Rocky Rapids out of Twin Creeks Dust of Elegance (Ellie). Fantastic is the third Colt of these two Champions, and as his mother, and both full brothers died in accidents he is the last stallion carrying this full combination of the famous Buckeroo and Van’t Huttenest blood lines, and we believe he will father exceptional foals.

 

OMH ELECTRIC’S HAMISH
Dark Bay colt born Nov 2009

By OMH Electric, the second colt of Ellie and Rocky, out of Olivia, a beautifully conformed South African mare who was sent back to our stud for her first foaling. Electric died from a Cape Cobra bite, and his owners were so devastated that they quit breeding and sold us both mother and foal. Hamish epitomizes the lightness and balance that we look for in miniatures to truly reflect their full-sized heritage.

 

Herd Mares

LILORA ANNET
Black mare born Aug 1998

A statuesque South African mare whom we have successfully bred to Rocky, producing three very fine foals – Evensong, Ferrari, and Harriet – all showing exceptional conformation, intelligence, and calm honesty.

 
ARIAGNE
Dark bay mare born Jan 1995

A good mature South African mare whom we acquired in 2004 because of her very correct conformation. Excellent foals by Rocky are Catrina and Hurricane.

A delightful young mare by Rocky out of Disneyland Tinkerbell she has give us the spectacular stallion Figaro by Classic Elegance, (Rocky and Ellie’s first foal), and Hi-Hopes by Hi-Roller.

TURN DIAMOND
Skewbald mare born Sept 1996

Diamond had a dreadful time with her first owners who tied her with wire to another horse, and when rescued by her breeder was found to have been bitten on the nose by a snake as well. After extensive and lengthy treatment she is completely recovered and her last foal, Diamond’s Little Gem, is quite exquisite and living at a well known stud farm in Hout Bay.

OMH ROCKY’S FANFARE
Chestnut mare born Oct 2007

Fanfare is by Rocky out of beautiful Turn Folly’s Fancy a combination that has been highly successful. Fanfare has been slow to develop and only recently gained enough assurance to claim her seniority in the herd. She has not yet been bred, but holds great promise.

TWIN CREEKS FROSTED LACE
Blue Roan pinto born April 2002

Frosty is American, and was Rocky’s traveling companion on the trip from Illinois. She is by Twin Creeks Classy J Bird out of Sleepy Acres Little Beauty ( Ellie’s mother), so Buckeroo and Vant Huttenest lines. She was bred once to Rocky but lost the foal after a viral infection.

OMH ROCKY’S HANNAH
Bay pinto Born Jan 2009

Hannah is by Rocky out of Turn Viola, and has been self assured from birth. She is charming and intelligent like both her parents, and will be ready to breed later this year.

TWIN CREEKS RIVER JORDAN
Grulla mare born Jan 1999

We imported Jordan in 2007 as an eight year old from the same stud as Rocky and Ellie, and she is the daughter of Boones Little Buckeroo Fancy by Huff’s Black Shadrack. As a filly she was shown in 2000 and reached the TOP TEN miniatures in the AMHR National Championships. Some years later her full sister was Halter Horse of the Year. Her colt Gabriel by Rocky, probably has the best pedigree in South Africa.

MEGAN
Piebald mare born Jan 2005

Megan was for many years a pet horse, but her kind owners recognized that she needed the company of other horses and sold her to us in 2008. She is quite lovely both in conformation and character and by Rocky has given us Indigo, a correct and charming colt.

 
OLIVIA
Bay pinto age approx 6 years

Olivia, dam of Hamish, came to us to have her foal in 2009 and when her owner offered to sell her, we jumped at the opportunity as her colt is quite outstanding. She is herself very beautiful and correct and a welcome addition to our core herd.

PRETTY PIXIE
Skewbald mare born June 2000

Pixie has been with us since 2002, and has given us really excellent foals, Calypso, Dazzler, Elfin and Georgia. She is a charming horse, loved by every horse and human on the farm, and her foals have all followed this and are sensible and loving.
