When Kay Pate started showing Bond Snippet she made quite a stir on the Texas show scene. She had bought quite a few Bond horses and claims to have gotten Snippet "thrown in" on a deal for a few show halters! He was in bad shape and had almost been foundered and Mr. Bond thought that he really wasn't worth much. Kay had been quite successful showing quarter horses for quite sometime and brought that expertise to the miniature area when she started showing Snippet. She proved Mr. Bond wrong in a big way! The previous year I had been very successful showing another Bond horse, Bond Peter Piper, usually winning that size class. When Snippet started showing we placed second to him almost every time, and I must say that I agreed with that placing and so I sold Peter! Snippet was campaigned extremely well for several seasons winning Reserve National Grand Champion Senior Stallion in 1987 and was National Champion Multi Color the previous year.
