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.

Cavalli

Cavalli is the first foal out of this cross.  Donny’s full brothers are World Champions Zanetti and Dragonsmeade Varvatos.   He is an extraordinary western horse for Ling.  He has Bocelli’s refinement and smooth body while also inheriting his dam’s gorgeous head.  Ling and Donny have been very successful in the very competitive western divisions. Among the many regional titles they won the Reserve World title in the 2011 Western Pleasure Amateur class. We wish Leslie and her family all the best with Cavalli!

May Spot live on through her offspring…. She is forever missed. 1992-2018

Diana Victoria

We are happy Lora Lyons gave us the chance to have two time world champion Diana Victoria be part of our broodmare herd! Her pedigree works well with all of our stallions.  She had Dragonsmeade Vesper Lynd by multi world champion Dragonsmeade Spectre in 2020.  Diana is in foal with a colt by Dragonsmeade Axios for the 2021 foaling season!

Dragonsmeade Adele

Our 2012 foal crop was a stellar year, and Jan is one of the best fillies born that year!  She has size, presence, talent, and show horse attitude.  Jan is very hot so we are so happy with how well she handled the show ring during the 2014 show season, and she won Reserve Futurity World Champion Park Harness Two Year Old! We can’t wait to see her under saddle for the 2015 show season! We wish lots of luck to the Johnson family at Arcola Farm!

Taylor is an extraordinary mare out of our world champion producer Donatella!  She has size, quality, and she has strong, beautiful motion.  We are thrilled the Lyon’s family chose Taylor for their granddaughter Sylvia Peterson!

Dragonsmeade Anthracite

Marcus could be one of the most beautiful colts for 2011! He is extreme yet has type, and his neck and shoulder are ideal. We are so happy Pete and Sandy Hendrick chose Marcus to be a show horse for Sandy!  We have loved every moment of watching Sandy show Marcus!  What a pair!

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.

Dragonsmeade Balenciaga

Patty is one of our favorite and important brood mares.  She has show horse attitude, and she has always been known in our family as “Princess Patty.”  Mike Carpenter trained her during her multiple world championship and regional grand champion show career.  She has proven herself beyond our expectations in the breeding shed.  Patty had had two fillies by And The Beat Goes On, two foals by Dragonsmeade Icon, and she had a filly by Dragonsmeade Spectre in 2020.  She is in foal with a filly by Caffeinated for 2021!

Dragonsmeade Bell Song

Bell Song is an extraordinary daughter we have out of our foundation brood mare Simply Apropos and by one of our favorite stallions HVK Bell Flaire. She had a short, but very sweet show career that started with her winning the 2002 $13,000 Futurity at Far West Regional with 16 quality yearlings competing. For her only appearance in 2003, she added a Reserve World Champion Futurity Two Year Old mare title to her record. Bell Song has now entered our foundation broodmare herd. She had a beautiful filly by Beethoven and two gorgeous fillies by Dragonsmeade Axios.
