The advertisement below appeared in NATIONAL HORSEMAN and BLUEGRASS HORSEMAN, as well as in several other magazines  in the early 1980s. (Please note that the area code has changed to 256.)  Before there was a computer search, I purchased a set of Registers and researched every available hour.  It was a labor of love for the American Saddle Horse.  The horse pictured with me is Hell Cats' Reveille.  The dog is Field Marshall MM, purchased from Walter McIlhenney's Rhodesian Ridgeback pack in Avery Island, Louisiana.  I am proud of the Morgan and Standard Trotting blood in our horses.  Our foundation stallions did not trace to my Great Grandfather's Trotting Horses at Fairlawn Stock Farm, Lexington, KY, but  in today's roster of stallions, Pacific Mist traces to both Almont and C.M.Clay, Jr.   Several broodmares also trace to these stallions, so General William Temple Withers' stock lives on today in the blood of  The Long Grey Line Farm. This makes me very proud of our heritage.
