(foaled 1/5/2000)

As many of you know, a serious bout with breast cancer derailed much of our trademark zest for living from June, 2005 until March, 2007. So many of our plans were derailed and simply put on hold. Among the joys that were pushed to the back burner were the frequent updates of this website and contacts that buyers of our young stock furnished us so that we could keep tabs on all our "babies" and their owners, our extended family. Cancer taught us much about ourselves and our own mettle, and at last we are delighted to be able to backtrack and bring these pages  up to date!

As far as we know, WIW Royal Tstarbucks was bought as a two year-old by Ann Van Atta, who lives in Newark, Ohio. She calls him Zach, just as Steve Marlow did. She notes that she uses Zach as a western pleasure and trail horse and that he really enjoys being out on trails. She also notes that our Tstarbucks is roaning out on his sides and in his tail. We figure he gets this quality from his sire, Royal, because Tsammie, his dam, has few white hairs and no areas of roaning at all. It is great to be able to keep tabs on all these foals, who grow up to be really great using horses!

Royal Tstarbucks is the second foal sired by purebred chestnut Crabbet stallion, Royal Pride Rythm. His markings nearly duplicate those of his sire, but looking into his eyes is like looking into those of  his black-bay dam, Supreme Tsamaz (HU-Sohda-Nohta x Supreme Tsolitaire, by Champion Supreme Tsultan), who has  multiple black crosses through her sire to *Fadl and Babson black stock.

This boy has lots of action; his long neck, well-shaped ears, good sloping shoulder, and his powerful hind quarters look like his sire's, but he has his dam's very pretty dish. This very agile youngster with tons of speed has his sire's canter, large, kind eye, and gentle personality. He has been  handled continuously since his birth, and he is now loved and treasured by Steve Marlow of Columbus, Ohio. At two years old, he is a good  fifteen hands and it appears that he may exceed the 15.1 height of his sire.

WIW Royal Tstarbucks competed in 4 shows in July and August 2000. He took a third place in a class where he was the only non-quarter horse in a field of eight. Additionally, he took a third out of a class of thirteen two-year-old and younger all-breed, where he was the youngest in the class. He  took a fifth in a class of fifteen saddle/pleasure horses of all ages, where he again was the youngest in the field. The judge's comments: "This little SOB [cleaned it up to be able to put it on our website!] has one heck of a frame! Just give him a year to show his stuff!"

On August 6, 2000,  Tstarbucks took the blue ribbon for a class in Two and Under Open Halter. At age 8 months, he was the youngest entrant in the class and bested one pinto, one paint, one quarter horse, and 1 purebred Arabian. The judge asked to see Tstarbucks' floating trot 3 times and thought he looked good enough to be a Purebred!

At left Steve and Buck (Steve prefers the name Zach) are enjoying each other's company in the Columbus suburb of New Albany just a week after Zach placed third in Sport Horse in Hand at the annual OHAHA Spring Show on April 20, 2002. He was the youngest horse in the class once again and still managed to attract the judge's attention and outscore seasoned Half-Arabians. We know that Steve and Zach will do great things together in the future.
