Stallions that left their mark in our breeding program
2004 World Grand Champion Senior Stallion/Gelding Open Model
Sire: Southern Sunrise
Dam: Bobbie Sue's Peggy Sue
Trip My Trigger was bred to be a Champion and to sire show quality, pleasure companions or show ring prospects.
He was sired by WGC Southern Sunrise, undisputedly one of the most influential sires of the breed.
His dam was the well planned cross of the famous Missouri Outlaw and the forever memorable Missouri Bobbie Sue.
A beautiful palomino stallion out of Southern Sunrise. Gentle and easy to handle, natural foxtrot.
Trigger was a joy to share for his short time with us. He left Hi Hopes Farm with many daughters as his legacy. Thanks to all for your support.
Sire: Merry Boy Sensation
Dam: Fury's Free Spirit
Chief's top side is Merry Boy Sensation, sire of many World Champions.
Sensation's tradition of producing ribbon winners goes back several generations and Chief has proven that his offspring are show ring winners too. Chief's bottom side is the product of Blue Daniel and a walking bred mare going back to Mack K's Handshaker.
There are few direct sons of the great Merry Boy Sensation left but here was a good one! Merry Boy Sensation was the sire of the 1986 and 1987 World Grand Champions as well as the 1988 World Grand Champion 3 year old. He produced ribbon winners for years before passing away in 1995. Merry Boy Sensation became known for consistently producing both fillys and colts with deep sloping shoulders that allowed the colts at maturity to reach out with great extension. This has become known as a "Sensation" front end. In addition his trademark was extremely gentle dispositions. For years countless amateurs have trained their own "Sensation" offspring as they are so willing. "Little Big Man" was the result of crossing Merry Boy Sensation with a wonderful little grey mare, Fury's Free Spirit.
Fury's Free Spirit was out of Blue Daniel, a former Model Champion and a walking bred mare that goes back to the well known Mack K's Handshaker. Little Big Man was brought out to the show ring as a 3 year old. At the 1987 Futurity he won 2nd in the studs and geldings qualifying class. He proudly placed 8th in the championship out of 145 total entries ridden by a rider he had never had before that night.
Little Big Man went on that year to place 9th in the overall 3 year old World Grand Championships against horses from all over the United States, many who had started their careers as 2 year olds. As a 4 year old he won numerous Hi-point awards in Performance, Model, and Ladies displaying his versatility and willing attitude.
Little Big Man (Chief) has passed on, but left many great mares as legacy, most remain here to carry on these old genetics. He was crossed with the mares on our farm, the colts we didn't keep to show ourselves were sold out every year. Most were bought and trained by amateurs and shown successfully in both Model and Performance or ridden for pleasure with smooth gaits and gentle attitudes. Our mare lines included Yankee, Traveler, Frosty Zane, Black Cloud, Master Tom, and Zane's Go Boy, all these made excellent foals - with colors from black, grey to palamino. Chief even line crosses well with other Sensation daughters. It's in the bloodlines - get some Sensation - up close! One of many winning offspring is Sensation's Little League.
