A Little More Info and Photos

StardanceÕs pedigree comes from very colorful roots of the early Appaloosa. His sire Leopard Cortez F-1072 was a well colored horse bred by early Appaloosa breeder Dan Morgan of Billings, Montana, and later sold into California to Viola Raibourn. Leopard Cortez was sired by the noted leopard stallion, MorganÕs Leopard F-437, bred in Wyoming by Mary Morgan, and also owned by Dan Morgan in Montana. He was later sold back into Wyoming to L.H. Mereness.

frosty ann

StardanceÕs Sundance heritage comes from his dam, Frosty Ann F- 1336, described as a red roan with light over hips and a blaze. She was bred by Phil Jenkins of Douglas, Wyoming, and owned by Lola Parks. Frosty Ann was sired by a registered Arabian stallion, out of a leopard Sundance daughter named Sundust F-1335. Sundust was bred by Otis Barber of Glenrock, Wyoming, and owned by Phil Jenkins. SundustÕs dam was Rosalie F-21, bred also by Otis Barber and owned by Merton Aldrich of Clinton, Minnesota, another early member of the ApHC.

Stardance's bloodline found its way into many well known Appaloosa breeding programs, such as the Timberline Stock Ranch owned by Ralph and Helen Brown in Broadview, Montana, and Money Creek Ranches of Houston, Minnesota owned by Ed and Evelyn Weber.

Stardance was sold to Wisconsin in 1960 to Grayce Larsen. He spent 11 years there. In 1971, the Larsens moved to the Black Hills. In 1972-1973 Stardance was leased to Dan and Mary Kee, Sand Springs, Montana. He also sired foals for John Taylor, Wolf Point, Montana. Stardance died December 1976 of heart failure, 24 1/2 years old.
