The first time I saw Phantom Storm was at the AMHA World Show in 2007. He immediately caught my attention, so much so that I looked up his owners, Don and Mary Lou Knapp. Turns out that they was customers of our, having bought one of our mares at on of the World Show sales some years earlier. I visited with them and told them how much I liked their stallion who, by the way,at that show won FIVE World Championships including World GRAND Champion Single Pleasure Driving! He offered to breed a mare if I was interested. I thanked him, but since I was in Texas and he was in Florida, gave it no more thought.
Fast forward several years and many World Championships and in 2012 Lauren happened to get to come to more of the World. Previously she just came for the youth portion and had to be in school during the rest of the show, but this year she stayed for most of it. I was sitting on one side of the arena and she on another when Single Pleasure Driving came into the ring. A couple of minutes later my phone rang. It was Lauren telling me to LOOK AT THAT HORSE!!! I laughingly told her that that was Phantom Storm that I had told her about several years ago and that his owners were sitting just a few rows in front of her and for her to introduce herself. Needless to say, she did and the next year we were on the way to the AMHA Annual Meeting in Florida in our trailer with two mares bound for Classic View Miniature Horse Farm with dates with Phantom Storm!
One of the mares that made that trip foaled a gorgeous black pinto colt, Little America's Phantom Knightfall, who has been a fantastic addition to our operation. He is a multiple Supreme Halter Horse, Liberty winner, Top Ten in several classes and was in a three way tie for World Champion Multi-Color, but finished third. We are waiting for him to mature more before putting him in driving training.
Meanwhile we have a couple more mares that went to Florida earlier in 2016 and just a few days ago brought back nine sons and daughters and grandget of Stormy to market. Our enthusiasm and friendship with the Knapp's cemented this deal which puts his offspring much closer to many miniature enthusiasts all over the nation.
Meanwhile, here is Stormy's fantastic AMHA Show Record. He is also HOF and much more with AMHR.
