B&L's Rock "E" Philharmonic

ASPC Classic Stallion

2003 National Champion Get of Sire
2006 ASPC Superior Sire

Sire: Bar-G's Rock "E"
Dam: B&L's Moonlights Lacy Lady

After purchasing Lady of Fashion from B&L Pony Farm in 1995, we very quickly decided that we wanted a Rock "E" son as a herd sire.

Enter Philharmonic, a fire-engine-red weanling whom we purchased in 1996. Always intending to have Philharmonic shown, that plan was derailed when a yearling buddy chewed off his tail.

So rather than a show career, Philharmonic spent his two year old summer learning how to be a pasture stallion courtesy of four experienced broodmares, and never looked back.

Phil sired many foals for us and turned out to be a particularly good sire of mares, who went on to have great show and breeding careers.

After keeping several daughters, we eventually sold Philharmonic. No doubt he will continue to be an asset to any Classic Shetland breeding program in the future.

"Duck" as this gelding became known, had an absolutely stellar show career, winning several national championships in halter. He then went on to a second career in obstacle, lead-line, and any other discipline asked of him. This is what a great gelding looks like !

One of the first few fillies sired by Philharmonic, Showgirl went on to a great show career and ASPC Halter Hall of Fame.

Desi was a lovely Classic show mare and has become one of our favorite ASPC/AMHR broodmares.
