Legend was bred, born and raised by Kathy Stumph
of Amazing Grace Tennessee Walkers.
Kathy says "I knew when I bred Glory
(Sun's Lady Glory) to Shad (Delight's
Shadow Man) I was going to get something
special and Gabriel is definitely
Gabriel or Gabe as he is affectionately called is a grand-son of both Midnight Sun and Sun's Delight D. He shares a sire with Tsuniah Sunday, the WGC lite-shod gelding and ambassador of the TWH
breed to Germany. Kathy owned him until
he was 18 years old and she retired from
breeding. She was very particular about
who and where he was going to go. He
arrived at Slush Creek Walkers on
Legend has an abundance of natural gaiting ability. Gabe loves people and attention.
He especially loves to share dill pickle sunflower seeds with Mark. Anyone can ride him and he is easy to handle when breeding. In spring of 2010 we had our first foals by Gabe and we are very pleased. The foals are very walky and so easy to train!
All initially certified Heritage Horses required a minimum of 5 stallions or
mares with registration numbers from the 1930s and 1940s still showing
on their pedigrees.
Delight's Midnight Legend has 22 such horses still on his pedigree. Alone,
Delight's Midnight Legend will still put 6 of these stallions
and mares from the
'30s and '40s on his foals pedigree. What
this means is that even if your mare has no
registration numbers from that period to
contribute her foal would still be eligible
for certification with the Heritage Society,
providing it meets all of the other
criteria. There are only a very few
stallions that can provide this and
Midnight Legend is one of them!
We no longer breed
outside mares to our herd sires,
but we have a new crop of foals for sale by
them, every spring.
An examination of Delight's
reveals that the amount of genetic input from Midnight Sun is
greater than that of a grandsire; the percentage of both Sun's
Delight D., and Wilson's Allen genes is equivalent to that of a
grandsire; that the degree of Roan Allen F-38 blood is nearly equivalent to that of a grandsire; and the percentage
of Merry Boy blood is greater
than that of a great-grandsire. The percentages of old walking
bloodlines are as follows:
