This gentle giant, standing 17 hands, was such a kind and talented stallion – a great disposition and phenomenal mind. With very few foals, he produced World Champions, National Champions, NSBA, European Champions, and Congress Champions. This is truly a remarkable statement for a relatively young sire.

They have been dedicated breeders and promoter of exceptional AQHA Hunter Under Saddle and fence horses -raising Multiple World and Congress Champions. And because of this the Blues Brothers may be gone but not forgotten.
