1965-Voice Of The Tennessee Walking Horse 1965 March Voice - Page 24

(Continued from Page 4) A check of the 1964 record indi­ cates that horses by SHADOW are achieving a notable reputation as outstanding individuals. They are consistant winners in the show ring. They bring top money in any age class at the best auctions and SHADOW-bred mares are in greater demand than ever before. PIDDLEY, also a superior horse by modern standards, is best de­ scribed as a very alert, extremely fine specimen, that is fast making a reputation for himself as an out­ standing breeding stallion. Also by MERRY GO BOY, the fabulous PIDDLEY offers a con­ trast in ALLEN blood that has proved to be valuable. His dam, ANN’S DIXIE MAID was by SO­ CIETY MAN who was by WIL­ SON’S ALLEN. This combination blends with almost any blood line and should nick well to produce outstanding colts from most mares. Called “the find of the century,” PIDDLEY, as is well known, sus­ tained a severe leg injury at the peak of his pre-season training as a two year old. He never entered the show ring, but the natural abi­ lity and outstanding conformation that attracted the attention of the Walking Horse World when he was in training, still persists. PIDD­ LEY, now eleven years old, was almost forgotten after his accident and it was not until several years ago that he attracted the attention of Mr. Jack Montgomery as a pro­ spective breeding horse. This proved to be a wise move on the part of Mr. Montgomery, for re­ cent years have proved his belief. PIDDLEY colts are now making their way into the show ring and 1965 will see more and more win­ ners bearing the PIDDLEY name. The Bailey-Montgomery Stables, located on the Lewisburg Highway a short way out of Shelbyville, is considered one of the best breed­ ing establishments anywhere. They have excellent facilities for caring for brood mares and colts and along with their breeding operation at the main stable are actively work­ ing some top SHADOW and PID­ DLEY colts for the show ring.
