ATWOOD MORGANS IN NEW HOMES


ATWOOD FIGURATIVELY
(MEM The Patriot x Perfect Cut)
2014 brown colt

The beauty of both Futurity French Command and Cartier is evident in Fig. He looks a great deal like his sire, with his perfect star and laid back shoulder. Fig is high headed and proud, and moves like a show horse. He has inherited the exceptionally kind nature of all of Diamondís foals.

Fig is one of the most photogenic foals we have bred, and in the United Kingdom, Alexandra Connor saw his photos and became his biggest admirer. For nearly two years, Alexandra followed Fig's development and progress; with just a few months remaining until her husband's tour of duty in England is over, Fig became a member of the Connor family. They will be united late in 2016 when Jordan, Alexandra and Clayton return to the U.S. Alexandra has future show plans for Fig; we wish them much success and offer our congratulations on the purchase of this beautiful colt.

ATWOOD CINCINNATUS
(Aljaks Double Whammy x JJF Bell of the Ball)
2011 chestnut gelding

One of our goals when we established Atwood Farm as a breeding operation was to breed a national champion. Atwood Cincinnatus was a standout from day one, with an exceptional length of neck and a natural ability to move off his hocks. He had the good looks and temperament of his excellent sire, Aljakís Double Whammy and the refinement and trotting ability of his maternal grandsire, HVK Bell Flaire. Nat took quickly to saddle work, and with his intelligence and good work ethic he blossomed under his training at Lookaway Farm in Medina, OH. His debut under saddle at the 2014 Buckeye Morgan Horse Show was a phenomenon; he traveled to OK two months later where he demonstrated his ability to compete on a national level, and brought home the Grand National Championship in Three Year Old English Pleasure- Stallions and Geldings.

-In 2015, Nat continued building his show ring resume under the direction of Lookaway Farm, with debuts in both the Ladies and Jr. Exhibitor divisions. His win at the New York Regional and a top eight finish in an extremely competitive World Championship Jr. Exhibitor English Pleasure class were highlights. Beth Wilber of Medina, OH has been a member of Natís fan club since his early days of training at Lookaway Farm. We couldnít be happier that he will now be a part of Bethís family. We wish Beth and her daughter, Erin, great success with this phenomenal show horse and look forward to following his career under the continued direction of Lookaway Farm. Congratulations, Beth! We hope you love him as much as we always have.

ATWOOD FORENSIC TOPIC
(RWJ Commanding Topic x JJF Bell of the Ball)
2014 brown colt

We so looked forward to the birth of this colt, as he would carry close up crosses to Tughill Commando on the top and bottom of his pedigree. He didnít disappoint us: Topper is built like a model Morgan- from his tiny ears and beautiful head to his close-coupled body and high set tail. Bellís foals are always full of personality, and Topper is no exception. He has loved people from the moment he first stood up. This colt has halter horse written all over him as well as the potential to sire excellent foals one day.

Kristy Pojda was looking for a young prospect when she saw Topperís photos and video on our web site. Within days, Topper was in his new home in Guthrie, OK, where Kristy will train him with the guidance of her sister, Kelly Kraegel of Cottonwood Creek Ranch. We know this colt has a blue ribbon future and wish Kristy much success.

ATWOOD COLORS ME SPECIAL
(Ancan True Colors x Nonesuch Very Special)
2011 palomino mare

MeMe is everything we hoped for when we crossed Iris with Ancan True Colors. Iris always puts a pretty head on her foals; this might be her best effort yet. Fine and feminine, with a dished profile and large soft eyes, MeMe also has good length of leg with her sire's ability to move off her hocks. It would be difficult to find a better example of a palomino filly in the breed. With her size, attitude and ability, MeMe's future in the show ring will be golden. We were so pleased when the Bogars of Walpole, NH chose MeMe to be a golden addition to their family, and we know that MeMe will represent us well in the New England area. We are looking forward to following her success with Averi. Congratulations to Averi Bogar of Walpole, NH.

NONESUCH VERY SPECIAL
(Yellow Iris Stevens x Nonesuch Secret Storm)
1998 dark chestnut mare

Back in the 1970s and 80s, one of the top breeding stallions was the beautiful Chasley Superman. Those who saw him will never forget him. He passed on his particular beauty to his get and one of his best sons was Yellow Iris Stevens who headed the breeding program at Leslie Blanchard's Yellow Iris Farm. We were fortunate to locate and purchase Nonesuch Very Special, one of Stevens's last daughters to use as one of Atwood's foundation broodmares. Bred by longtime Morgan breeder, Carolyn Warman, "Iris" carries a second cross to Superman on her dam's side through World Champion Rapidan Apollo. A couple of generations back she also has a cross to Troutbrook Playboy through the good breeding horse Shaker's Rio and plenty of government breeding to round things out. Iris has the look of the Superman bred horses, including the clean throatlatch and smooth lines. She also has an incredibly beautiful head and eye and consistently passes these traits on to her offspring.

Iris is as special as her name would suggest. She is a kind and sweet mare and a good mother. She is a breeder's dream: she conceives easily and foals on schedule. She has produced seven good foals, three of which carry the Atwood Prefix. When she isn't nursing a foal, we enjoyed riding Iris around the farm. Iris was one of our foundation broodmares, and we love her as an individual and for her excellent and rare bloodlines; it was disheartening when she could no longer produce foals. But we were so happy when our friends, Connie and Roger Stitzlein invited her to be a companion to their retired Saddlebred mare on their beautiful farm. Weíre certain that Iris is convinced she has died and gone to horse heaven. Congratulations to Connie and Roger Stitzlein of Loudonville, OH.

ATWOOD DEBUTANTE THYME
(Winterset Thyme n'Agin x JJF Bell of the Ball)
2012 black filly

Minutes after Deb's birth, we knew she was a good one. Crossing Bell with Winterset Thyme N'Agin doubled the blood of HVK Bell Flaire, and the results are exactly what we'd hope for. Deb is as correct as she can be, and has a gorgeous head with a perfectly upright neck. Aubrey Alford, of Indian Hills. Co. recognized Deb's quality and has a high opinion of Deb's dam. Deb will now grow up in the Rocky Mountains, just as JJF Bell of the Ball did. Deb was one we hated to part with, but we know she will have an excellent home in Colorado. We wish Aubrey much success.

ATWOOD ELYSIUM
(MEM The Patriot x Stage Rage Ruby)
2013 bay gelding

Ruby was carrying a foal by MEM The Patriot when we bought her. We like Patriot as an individual as well as on paper. Who wouldn't be excited about obtaining the blood of Futurity French Command and AFF Beulah!

Eli is big, long legged and athletic. He shows much promise as a performance horse and will have the size and beauty to get noticed in the show ring. His athletic ability and size make him an outstanding hunter or dressage prospect. Congratulations to Sam Bowman, Jr. of Millersburg, OH.

(Hollybrook Stage Rage x Julianne Command)
2002 chestnut mare

Daughters of Hollybrook Stage Rage are appreciated for their beauty and athletic ability, and Ruby is no exception. With a very respectable career in Park Saddle classes and natural athletic ability, Ruby was a wonderful addition to our broodmare band. Her colt by MEM The Patriot (see "For Sale" page) shows a great deal of promise. Although we will miss Ruby, we were pleased when Kathy Pierce of Kinzu Morgans, Warren PA, wanted to add her to her excellent band of mares. We wish Kathy much success with Ruby.

ATWOOD DIAMOND MILLENNIUM
(Minion Millennium x Perfect Cut)
2012 chestnut filly

Millie was her damís first foal, and convinced us we had made a good choice when we bought Perfect Cut. She greatly resembles her sire and has her motherís beautiful neck. Both intelligent and sweet, Millie has much potential, both in the show ring and later as a producer. Debby Mudler of Dallesport, WA recognized Millieís qualities and Millie will now reside in the Pacific Northwest. We congratulate Debby on her choice and wish her much success.

GOLDEN LEGACY STARBRIGHT
(MEMC Tequila Cuervo x No-Bil Starlight Lane)
2003 palomino mare

Gary admires palomino Morgans, and was looking for a horse to enjoy riding around the farm. He found what he was looking for in Golden Legacy Starbright. By MEMC Tequila Cuervo, the sire of many beautiful palominos and cremellos, "Lacy's" dam also carries the blood of Trophy through Dee Cee Mr. Trophy and government breeding through UVM Gates. Lacy had several years of successful showing in hunt seat and English Pleasure. Lacy provides a beautiful splash of golden color against the backdrop of all of our dark brown, bay and chestnut, and visitors to Atwood Farm seem to notice her first. Lacy produced a beautiful buckskin colt by Rio's Promise in April, 2012.  Congratulations to Margaret Turner of Nescopeck, PA. We hope Margaret enjoys Lacy as much as we have.

ATWOOD ARABELLA
(HVK Dragon Beat x JJF Bell of the Ball)
2009 black mare

With HVK Bell Flaire and And The Beat Goes On as grand sires and Sun South Capri as her maternal grand dam, Atwood Arabella was certainly bred to be a show horse. And from birth she has looked and acted like a show horse. She was a Reserve Jr. Champion mare at the Gold Cup regional as a yearling, and had a very successful season in Jr. Hunter Pleasure classes as a three year old, including a Jr. Championship at the Buckeye Morgan Show. Arabella has been professionally trained as a yearling, two year old and three year old. She has the temperament for junior exhibitors or amateurs, and her trainers have remarked about her intelligence and sweet disposition. She should be very competitive in her last year as a junior horse in 2013. Arabella is also trained to drive and with her breeding should produce excellent foals when she has been retired from the show ring. She is currently in training and may be seen at Lookaway Farm in Medina, Ohio.

It was tempting to keep Arabella for ourselves. She was the first to carry our prefix and she will always be very special to us for her beauty, kind disposition, and athletic ability. But we couldnít be happier than to congratulate Stacey Buehler of Concord, OH on her purchase of Arabella, and wish her much success. Stacey, you got a good one!

ATWOOD DJIBOUTI
(Rio's Promise x Golden Legacy Starbright)
2012 buckskin colt

Ti is Lacy's first foal and we weren't disappointed. He appears to have inherited the ability to trot through his dam's Trophy blood as well as her size and excellent legs . His beautiful head and large eye are compliments of his sire's crosses to Shaker's Rio and UVM Promise. He also is one of the friendliest, most people-oriented foals we've had at Atwood Farm.

ATWOOD CAMEO
(Notahoby Independence x LGR Moriah)
2011 bay filly

Atwood Cameo is her dam's first full Morgan foal, and she greatly resembles her mother, with the same solid, rich bay coloring and classic Morgan type. She did inherit her sire's pretty head and kind disposition. Cameo loves to run and has been curious since birth. She would be suitable for many disciplines, and would make a beautiful western pleasure horse. One look at her pedigree supports that she is also an outstanding broodmare candidate, with crosses to great stallions such as Beamine, Waseeka's Skylark, Tedwin Topic and Ultimate Command. She also carries the blood of the great producing mares Pleasant Lady, Azurewood High Time, Brentwood Elegance, Fieldcrest Falina and Overlook Jessica. SOLD

LGR MORIAH
(GVF Proper Command x Popas April Fool's Day)
2002 bay mare

Randy accompanied his longtime friend and cousin, Rhoda McKown of Pine Ridge Farm Morgans, to the Cochran Auction back in 1993 when Rhoda was looking for a young stallion prospect. Both Randy and Rhoda were impressed with the two year old, GVF Proper Command (Ultimate Command x LCS Stardust [by Tedwin Topic]). Proper Command went on to sire several nice foals before his too early death. When Cindy Hallet of Locust Grove Ranch switched her breeding operation from Morgans to Arabians, LGR Moriah became available and was added to the Atwood herd. Moriah was one of only three daughters that Proper Command sired and she looks a great deal like her sire. On her dam's side, she has lots of Brunk breeding as well as crosses to Waseeka's Moonshot through the beautiful Kinglow Charade and Kingston through Applevale Storm King.

Moriah was bred to Locust Grove's Egyptian Arabian stallion and produced one foal for Locust Grove before coming to Atwood Farm. The result was a beautiful black Morab filly (pictured at right; click to enlarge). Moriah has the typey good looks of many of the Morgans that attracted Randy to the breed in the 1970s. Her Brunk breeding gives her plenty of spark. In April 2011, Moriah produced her first Morgan foal, a beautiful, bay filly sired by Notahoby Independence.

JACKRABBIT SLIM
(Pot of Gold x MSV Victoria)
2002 bay gelding

World Champion stallion, Pot of Gold, has produced many athletic and beautiful horses. When Jackrabbit Slim was offered for sale at the 2010 Signature Sale, we couldn't pass him up. Out of the Arboria Noble Victor daughter, MSV Victoria, Slim was bred and trained to be a show horse. Trained and shown by Kurt Hufferd, he has had wins from New England to Oklahoma City, in Park Harness and Pleasure Driving. More recently, Playmor Farm showed him in Classic Pleasure Driving. Even barefoot, Slim has a trot that thrills us. He seems to be enjoying a break from the show ring and loves his pasture turn out. In the stall, he is a sweetheart to be around. We're planning on hitching Slim and driving him around the farm, but won't rule out bringing him back to the show ring, as Slim could have many years of showing left in him. SOLD

ATWOOD BEGUILING BATIK
(Notahoby Independence x Nonesuch Very Special)
2010 chestnut colt

Our friends Jack and Becky Caley of JRC Morgans were fortunate to obtain a grandson of both Beamine and Waseeka's Skylark from the Cochran Auction. Sired by Wildtime and out of Brentwood Elegance, Notahoby Independence is a beautiful example of a classic Morgan. We were so impressed by his looks and his offspring that we chose him as a breeding choice for Nonesuch Very Special. Atwood Beguiling Batik is the first foal bred by Atwood Farm and we couldn't be happier with him. Batik has shed out to his mother's dark chestnut color and has a perfect small star and snip to accent his head which is a beautiful combination of his parents'. Batik is easy to work with and enjoys being around people. At only a week old he was flagging his tail and trotting level. SOLD

ATWOOD AGAMEMNON
(AEM Lucky Wynne x Nonesuch Very Special)
2009 chestnut colt

When we purchased Nonesuch Very Special ("Iris") in March of 2009, she was carrying a foal by AEM Lucky Wynne. Lucky Wynne has two crosses to Waseeka's In Command, (one through the beautiful Duke of Wynne) as well as a touch of Funquest breeding. Atwood Agamemnon was foaled in May of 2009, and from the start he entertained us with his curiosity and zest for life. He had his sire's brilliant red color and full blaze and his dam's beautiful head and neck. Never has a foal loved to run more than Agamemnon, and he also quickly showed a talent for jumping fences. Despite his boundless energy, Agamemnon has a sweet disposition and loves people. SOLD
