Rudolph's Golden Comanche


2008 ASPC Superior Sire
2009 AMHR Superior Sire
2013 ASPC Double Superior Sire

Sire: Bar-G's Rock "E"
Dam: Martin's Peaches & Cream

As we were beginning our search for an ASPC/AMHR herd sire in early 2000, we always had Comanche (or "Mr. Ed" as he was known) in mind, and could never find any colt we liked quite as well. In 2002, Kevin & Nina Rudolph gave us the incredible opportunity to buy Comanche, for which we have been forever grateful.

Over the next few years, Comanche quickly became our main herd sire. His foals competed very successfully in the Classic and Foundation Shetland divisions, as well as in AMHR.

Alas, in December 2009 we were devastated to learn that Comanche had developed an aggresive form of cancer, and lost him shortly thereafter. We didn't get to spend near enough time enjoying this fantastic little pony, but are very thankful to have several sons & daughters to remind us of him.

Like her full brother Reign Man, Pearlz was a phenomenal show horse, and like her sire, left us far too soon.

Red Cloud is an exceptional show gelding, earning many titles in Shetland as well as AMHR shows.
