and exhibitor of Hackney Horses and Ponies from 1920 until 1961, he imported
to Canada from England the horse stallions Warwick Footlight in 1950, and
Dufferin Haven in 1952, as well as owning The Bandleader, brought to North
America by Dodge Stables. All which have made a lasting contribution
to the Hackney horse in North America. His stud of Hackney ponies
included stallions Delightful Delirium and Majesty’s Promoter. A number of
choice mares were imported to Canada from the Alasa Farm in New York, Longview
Farm in Missouri, and Dodge Stables in Michigan. Highland Cora
was acquired in 1938 and was considered to be the greatest pony of that era.
Hackney Show Stock from the Dufferin Stock Farm was very much sought after
in the 1950’s and 1960’s, and show stock today can find traces of this breeding
program. His production sale in 1954 made available a number of well
bred show animals and breeding stock that became winners for their new owners.
