And The Beat Goes On

Bud was a once and a lifetime horse.  He will always be missed.

Bred by Jim and Tracy Hangley, and trained during his show career by Bob Hughes and Rock Walker, Bud was a once in a lifetime Morgan.  In 1998 we watched him win his first class, the Three Year Old Park Harness, at the Morgan Medallion.  Bud exploded into the show world that day, and went on to win the World Champion Futurity Park Harness Three Year Old and the World Champion Park Harness Three Year Old. In 1999 he won the Amateur Park Harness as a four year old.  He went on to win nearly every park harness class he showed in.

To us, he was always the gangly, beautiful, superbly athletic goofball who would relax his way through warmups, then dazzle under the lights in the ring with an audience watching him.  He loved the crowd in the show ring, and in retirement he loved people watching him trot and flag his tail through his paddock.  A true Morgan show horse in every sense. Bud lives on through his progeny.

Beethoven

Beethoven’s progeny have amassed many World Championships. He has been a proven producer of world champions in nearly every division in Oklahoma from multi-world champion Dragonsmeade CarnegieHall, RJMF Symphonic Music, Dragonsmeade Virtuoso, and Dragonsmeade Bravura in the English Pleasure, Pleasure Driving and In-Hand divisions, to Dragonsmeade Crescendo in the Hunter division. Beethoven’s daughters, such as Dragonsmeade Aria, have proven to be gems in the breeding shed when crossed to a variety of stallions.  He is terribly missed, but his blood lives on through his offspring in our fields.

Bocelli

This magnificent stallion is by Beethoven and out of the dam of Simply Maserati. Bocelli has left a very important mark on the Morgan breed and have bred our best mares to him, and in return, we have his daughters now having beautiful foals. His daughters immediately became some of our best brood mares on our farm.  He is enjoying retired stud life at our farm.

Dragonsmeade Axios

Along with his half brother, Icon,  Axios may be one of the best stallions we’ve bred. By multi World Champion And The Beat Goes On and out of multi World Champion HVK Obisidian, Axios is a dream cross. While in training with Tim Roesink he went on to win world championships and regional championshops in park harness, park saddle, and in the pleasure division during his show career.  We have bred him to most of our top foundation brood mares.  This big stallion is extremely upheaded and has a dynamic park trot reminiscent of his sire And The Beat Goes On and his maternal grandsire HVK Bell Flaire.  2010 marked the year for his first foal crop, and his offspring are exotic and very upheaded.  Not only was he a dynamic show horse, Axios is a proven to be an amazing sire.

Once and a lifetime horse… he is forever missed.

Dragonsmeade Spectre

Spectre, or better known in our family as Cat, is one of the best colts we’ve bred! He has springy motion off both ends, and he has the look of his multi-world champion sire, Dragonsmeade Icon. Given his young age he has already won three world championships!  Since his sire was such a dynamic and potent stallion we were eager to have Cat mature enough so we could start breeding him.  We now have six foals by Cat!  It is clear after his first two breeding seasons he has proven to be a dynamic sire.  There are several outside foals by him on the ground too.  We thank those breeders for believing in him and his pedigree!

Dragonsmeade Synergy

Synergy is one of the most exotic foals we’ve bred! He has a chiseled head and refined Morgan type. We are hopeful he will carry on his sire and dam’s bloodlines well into the future.
