STALLIONS OF CROSSWINDS
Samis Brilliant Accent
Samis Brilliant Accent (aka ACE)
was purchased from Ron and Sami Scheuring in Fall 2011 as a driving prospect.
We noted his refinement, color, conformation, and awesome trot, and we
have never regretted our decision to make him a part of Crosswinds Farm.
He has matured into an outstanding 32" stallion that is fulfilling our
expectations as a driving horse and as a halter show horse. He consistently
wins multiple grand championships in both driving (Country Pleasure and
Classic Pleasure/Western Country Pleasure Driving) and halter, as well
as many first place ribbons in Liberty. Under the training of Tammi
Nuttall of Winning Ways Training Center, he competed in 2013 in both the
AMHR Nationals and the AMHA World Championship Show. Although we
are still searching for the best division for him in driving, at the 2013
AMHR National Show, he won a Reserve Grand Championship in Western Country
Pleasure Driving and three Top Tens at the AMHA World Show in Classic Pleasure
Ace has an impeccable pedigree in both
halter and performance on the top side and the bottom side. His grandsires
are Champion Farms Sirs Signature and Samis Kid Banana by Shadow Oaks Top
Banana. These bloodlines are among the finest in the miniature horse
industry, and we anticipate a bold and bright future with this combination
This was said about Ace’s sire (Abrias
Signature Accent), “He has the refinement you rarely find in a miniature
and just keeps getting better as he matures.” This is exactly how
I would describe Ace. Approached by total strangers at shows, we
often hear them say something to the effect that “he is the most beautiful
miniature that I have ever seen.” With his “look at me” attitude
and striking appearance, he gets your attention and that of the show judges.
Current plans are to continue showing
Ace and to breed him to a small number of select mares in the near future.
Windemeres Buckeroo Regal
In 2006 we were fortunate to be able to
purchase from John and Janet Hays one of the most exciting Buckerooo grandsons
that we have ever seen, Windemeres Buckeroo Regal Heir (Reggie).
Out of KLS All That Jazz and by Little Kings Buckeroo Comin Thru, both
great show horses, Reggie was campaigned on the show circuit for the first
time as a yearling in 2006. In addition to winning many firsts, grand
and reserve champions, and supremes, he finished the year as the OMHCI
High Point Amateur Junior Stallion; the Southwestern Miniature Horse Club’s
High Point Yearling Stallion, 28" and under; and the AMHA Honor Roll’s
4th place Amateur Junior Stallion, Level 1, and 3rd place Yearling Stallion,
28" and under. We knew we had something special in Reggie and chose
to breed him to a small number of selected mares for 2008 foals; and he
produced some outstanding show horses, including Stormy, Little Bit, and
Prince. In his last year on the show circuit, he did himself and
us proud by ringing up championship after championship awards and culminating
the year by winning AMHA World Show Top Ten (4th) Amateur Senior Stallion,
Level 2, 30" and under, and Top Ten (5th) Senior Stallion, 28" and under.
He was named AMHA 2008 Honor Roll Champion (Amateur Senior Stallion, Level
2, 30" and under) and was second in the rankings of Senior Stallions, 28"
and under, on the Honor Roll. In addition, he received High Point
Awards for Senior and Amateur Senior Stallion by the Oklahoma Miniature
Horse Club and the Southwestern Miniature Horse Club.
Now he stands as one of Crosswinds’ lead
stallions and the Buckeroo bloodline. He is a size reducer with a
beautifully refined head and very correctly proportioned conformation for
a small stallion. With a “look at me” attitude, he has let the other
stallions (and the mares) at Crosswinds know that “there is a new sheriff
|After selling Reeces
Irish Hawk in Fall 2009 so that he could fulfill his potential as a senior
halter and driving horse as well as a herd sire, we decided that we must
continue the "Hawk" bloodline at Crosswinds Farm; and it did not take us
long to select "Twister" to carry that banner. Out of one of our most productive
broodmares (a Colbys General Lee mare) and by Irish, he has Hawk conformation
and an unusually loud color that he passed on to his first foal in 2010.
Shown lightly in halter and color classes, he got the attention of judges
and onlookers. Twister is being bred to selected Crosswinds’ and
outside mares for color and continuation of the “Hawk” bloodline.
Standing at 32", this is a fine looking stallion with a great disposition,
and he produces the kind of babies we want to see.
