Reference: Golden Sunshine

Golden Sunshine F-44 (gelded in 1929), out of Golden Lady, was the only yellow foundation horse out of 115 foundation horses recognized by the TWHBEA. Golden Sunshine's most famous son, Barker's Moonbeam, was called "the foundation sire of the Palomino Walking Horse" in 1948 by Dr. H. Arthur Zappe, secretary of the Palomino Horse Breeders of America.

"Burt's daughter, Jean Hunter, remembers well her family's golden horses and described Golden Sunshine F-44 to me in vivid detail. "He was the most unusual color you've ever seen," she says. "You could put a gold dollar up against him and stand back in the sun, and you couldn't see the dollar. And he had white skin and yellow eyes. His mother, Golden Lady, was the same way."
