Horse Named After Gerry (Sort of)

Recommended Posts

Could be the owner is a fan...as 300 was released in the states 3/07 and this young stud is 2 years old. In looking at his blood line, there are no other sires or dams with any name pertaining to Spartans or 300 so it's a good possibility the owner was thinking of Gerry when this horse was foaled. :leo2:

Hmmm, he reminds me of Gerry: Studley, lots of muscle and gorgeous!

It's a possibility, but Leo is the name of one of the four foundation sires for the AQHA ... so there's that connection as well.

Interesting! thanks for sharing it :)

You're welcome. The other foundation breed sires were King, Peppy, Joe Reed, Poco Bueno, Wimpy and Joe Hancock (I said there were four, but when I went to double-check their names I found out that there were a few more, LOL).

What a name like King Leonidus tells AQHA afficionados is that this horse has both King and Leo bloodlines. Another very famous horse later in the breed is Doc Bar; the mare I rode was Doc's Golden Pep, which meant that she had Peppy and Doc Bar blood lines. The breed has very specific naming traditions in this regard.

My American Paint mare, BranDee's pedigree comes out of Sunny Dee Bar, APHA, out of Sonny Dee Bar AQHA another famous quarter horse distant relation to Doc Bar. King Leonidas looks like he has a weak pastern. Buyer beware!

Wow! I'm getting lots of good replies! I didn't know there were any horse people on the board! Sweet!

I myself have got three horses. One can be registered with the AQHA, while another one is said to be Poco Bueno bred. The AQHA filly is Dash For Cash and Bayou Bar bred. But anyway, back to Gerry!

I agree that he's a nice little stud, and more than likely was named after Gerry's character. *lol* It's kind of amusing to think about it, isn't it?

I was thinking along those same lines....A STUD! Gorgeous Horse and I think someone is a fan of Gerry's! :cunning:

My cheeky comment would have to be edited since we're not in the over 18 forum :spit: , so I'll just say...

nice horse!

Glad you discovered some AQHA friends, Mask!

I belong to the ASHBA (ASHA - American Saddle Horse Assoc.). Not familiar with AQHA lines but now I know about "Leo" :D
