to Mitch L. &/or Clayre Moiola
HQH Melody Blue Roan Filly. She's as cute as she can be. She always wants to be petted, and comes right up for the attention.
Sire: NU Hollywood King a 2001 grullo stallion. He has 96% Foundation breeding with the NFQHA, and he is UC Davis tested;with the double EE homozygous black gene His sire is: Hollywood at Dawn a grullo stallion that was mostly used at home, but did some cutting at the shows, and has won some money in the NCHA. His Sire is Hollywood Bill a Superior Cutting horse with 133 cutting points in the AQHA. His sire was a legend, the great Hollywood Gold. He was used on the ranch, and a great sire. The owners said they didn't know what they had, until he was gone. His offspring became a sensation in the show rings.
Hollywood at Dawn had to be quite a horse. Can you even imagine owning a horse that was a grand son of Hollywood Gold on the top, and a grandson of King P234, on the bottom, as he was the dams's sire! Queen Dawn won 11 halter points.
NU Hollywood King's Dam, Dun In NU Jewels, was sired by NU Bar Twist a buckskin stallion, an honor roll Working Cowhorse and Champion Bridle horse. He was a grandson of NU Bar; A Reserve World Champion Cutting horse in the AQHA, and a Top Ten Finalist (tying for 6th place) in the NCHA 2 different years.
HQH Melody was breed, born, and raised at Hillmans Quarter Horses. She was sired by Smoky Music Too; a son of Snipper Music, a Kaniksu Snaffle Bit Futurity Champion.
HQH Melody's grandsire on the bottom was Sierra G Son, a Big good looking palomino horse that we bought from Ernest and Bernetta Patterson in 1985. They were going into Paints as that was the fad at that time, and we needed a stallion as Paul's Zebra had died that winter. Rockey owned Paul's Zebra when we got married in 1978. He had purchased him from Virgine Miller, close to Seattle. She gave color clinics and Rockey aquired much of his knowledge on color from Virgine back in 1976 and has been breeding good quality horses that happen to be colored athlete's ever since.
You can bet this new 2011 Blue Roan Filly will be one of them!
