|What do my stallions have in common?
- Their genetic strength - chosen for
having both sires and dams, in each
generation, who have either performed or
produced...and usually both.
- Each an outstanding individual in their
own right: performance - Confirmation -
- Sweet kind dispositions and intelligence
- Lastly - color.
The goal is to produce beautiful horses
that can be trained and used. Elm Tree is
an affair of the heart, so when I look out
across the pasture, I want to be proud of
what I see.

This splashy Sabino TB was a son of the JC Speed horse Full

Since the Thoroughbred is
considered a "bloodline" color
and dual registration has always
been considered a GIFT!
APHA National Champion Tyne's SteelDust
15'3 Overo - Kind and athletic Tyne's was a multiple halter grand
champion with over 300 points between Class A Paint or Pinto shows.
-Superior Western Pleasure. He was a Champion Producer with progeny
earning Superiors in Halter - Reining & Western Pleasure. We kept daughters
and granddaughters for our APHA broodmare band.
Tyne's Steeldust was AQHA top and bottom - a crop out - sporting some of the
best Quarter Horse lines. At that time, AQHA would not register excessive white
individuals - and they lost a champion to their registry. He is pictured at age 17.
Like his name - he became "steeldust" white as he aged. The original color
was blue roan with huge splashes of body white. His conformation was perfect.
Although a breeding stallion, we loaned him for as a lesson horse for youth. He
was, in all respects, a gentleman and Champion. Pedigree 100% AQHA - but
foaled in an era where excessive white was a barrier to registration as quarter
horse. The owners registered this future Champion as a paint.
APHA AAA Producer Deliver Me Spots 16'1 Tobiano- The
kindest and gentlest horse we have ever owned, Visitors usually mistook Spot for a kid-
broke gelding instead of a breeding stallion - a beautiful and massively built horse with
flawless confirmation. Spot was pedigree was packed with performance top and bottom
with a high concentration of thoroughbreds.
We used this stud as a heading horse and lent him to youth to use in roping
events. He consistently reproduced his elegant head, muscular build and gentle
nature to his off spring. This stallion influenced our decision to move toward the
thoroughbred as a breed of choice. He was used in competitive Jack Pot ropings
- used as both a heading and healing horse. He would breed mares then be
loaded up and used as a roping horse...then back to the breeding shed.
Memory lane - these stallions are deceased and are
mentioned for historical purposes. All lived out their lives
with us. Over the years, I have owned a number of
exceptional stallions - notable for their kind dispositions.
Elm Tree Farm has been raising horses since the early
1980s. Originally, starting with registered Paints, we
slowly moved from the Paint youth market to speedbred
performance. While still preferring chrome - we now
exclusively raise Thoroughbreds - some dual registered
