Stallion Service Contract
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. We waited patiently
while he matured and sent him to Joe London to be started as a
coming three year old. We couldn't be more pleased with the
results! Midas has become on of my favorite mounts (tied with my
Midas inherited his sire's incredible
disposition. He has a strong desire to please and that makes him
incredibly easy to train and a joy to be around. His common sense
and honest approach to everything have made him a tremendous trail
horse. He is our three year old son, Gavin's, favorite mount
(though he rides on my lap, as he's not quite ready to ride on his
own yet.) We ride down busy roads
passing barking dogs, motorcycles, tractors, semi trucks, and more
and Midas doesn't flinch. He just carries 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 have been riding Midas alone
and in groups with mares and geldings and he takes excellent care
of us. You would hardly know he was a stallion.
Midas has exhibited a head-nodding, 4 beat running walk since day
one. He also demonstrates 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 has retained that agility and athleticism as an adult horse.
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.
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.
mares: palomino and buckskin foals.
mares: palomino, buckskin, cremello, or perlino
mares: cremello or perlino foals.
Classic/Amber/Gold champagne mares: palomino, buckskin, amber, gold, gold cream, or amber cream foals.
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.

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.
*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.
*Only accepts foals out of registered and bloodtyped TWHBEA mares.
Midas' stud fee is $375/LCFG and mare
care is $15/day or $200/mo (pasture board). We are located in Locust Dale, Virginia.
Cooled shipped semen is available through
We have Midas hauled to
their location in order to collect.
We do not currently offer frozen semen for export.
The fees associated with this would cost around $10k.
