Del's Cowboy

Year: 1981
Sire: Sligo Stormy
Ruth Haynes Moto

One of the most beautiful palomino stallions in AMHA history, Cowboy has been an outstanding sire, passing on his quality and conformation to many of his offspring.  Early in his life he spent quite a bit of time as the main herdsire for Arnold Landry, then went to Hunt House Farms until their dispersal.  At the dispersal sale he went to Robin's Nest Miniatures, Mark and Robin Miller, Placerville, California. His dam, Ruth Haynes Moto was the first National Champion Mare of AMHA.  I was privileged to own her for several years, until we sold her to Mellis See of Meridian Miniature Horses where she is living out her retirement years.

We also were fortunate to own Brewer's Cowboy Classic, who I feel was the most beautiful mare that we ever owned.  She was what sold me on Del's Cowboy, in the first place.  Unfortunately she had a problem delivering her first foal and we lost her and the foal!
