LEGENDS continued from page ??? always been crazy over color, especially pintos with blue eyes.
We didn’t buy any horses, and couldn’t afford the beautiful colt, but I never forgot him and wished I could have owned him.
The next year I went to a sale at Dave Eglins in the Adirondacks in New York State.
Guess who was standing in a stall waiting to be sold? That same colt, 4GS Little Kings Alfalfas Pleasure, there he was staring at me again, with those exotic blue eyes! This was surely my lucky day and we were very happy to purchase him and bring him back to Delaware.
Those piercing blue eyes are why we affectionately named him Hawk.
In 1994 and 1995 my daughter Danielle and I went to work for Grosshill Farms, so Hawk only produced two foals in 1995 and none in 1996.
His first foal in 1995 was Reeces Night Hawk, a beautiful black and white overo stallion, with a beautiful head, those blue eyes, and an elegant upright neck that went on forever.
We were thrilled.
Hawk had produced a pretty head and great conformation with color; everything we were breeding for! Night Hawk went on to be a winning show horse and a great producing stallion. Reeces Secret Hawk Reeces Thunder Hawk Then in 1998 a Hawk filly won two Reserve and one National Championship.
Reeces Ebony Hawk was named World Champion weanling filly and Reserve World Champion Solid Color Mare.
That same National show, Reeces Amber Hawk was Reserve National Champion Amateur mare, level 2.
Reeces Secret Hawk went on to be a Multi National and Reserve National Champion, Honor Roll Winner and Futurity Winner.
She was owned by the late Henry Horrox.
Secret Hawk is now a treasured brood mare owned by Ravenwood Miniatures and has already produced a National Champion. 2007 Get of Sire Reserve Champions were Reeces Gypsy Hawk, Reeces Amber Hawk and Reeces Secret Hawk. At the 1997 National Show in Lexington, Virginia two Hawk offspring were named National Champions.
Reeces Secret Hawk, was named National Champion filly and Reeces Thunder Hawk was National Champion colt.
They both possessed all of Hawks great qualities, with color.
That same year Hawk tied for Reserve National Champion Get of Sire and placed third.
What a thrill that National Show was, things couldn’t have been better, we were so proud! Reeces Ebony Hawk 2 Miniature Horse World February/March 2009 LEGENDS continued from page ??? We also sold Reeces Thunder Hawk at the National Show, and had the opportunity to buy him back in 2001.
