Susar El Khamor "Bucky" is a wonderful, magical horse. Bucky is an embryo transfer baby out of the absolutely irreplaceable mare Om Khamsa (*Tuhotmos x Ra'Adin Hilal) and by the Champion producing *Tuhotmos son Masada El Rabdan (*Tuhotmos x Masada Dahmah). We worked for four years with Om Khamsa before we were able to get an embryo out of her. Om Khamsa was blind and had been unable to maintain a pregnancy for many years. Walter Schimanski did not have a good reproductive vet in his area, so he sent Om Khamsa to Susar Farm so Dr. Paul Morris, a renouned reproductive expert, could try to get a foal from Om Khamsa and Masada El Rabdan thus carring the 50% *Tuhotmos and non-Nazeer genetics into yet another generation. Bucky's name "Susar El Khamor" is in appreciation to Paul Morris (thus the Mor) without whom he would never have existed.
We planned on using one of our mares to carry Khamsa's embryo, but alas, the timing was slightly off, so Bucky was carried by a Percheron mare who was not sure what to do with this tiny, very active and smart baby!
Currently Bucky is winning Regionally in Sporthorse and is a wonderful dressage horse and jumper. He is producing athletic, beautiful foals who are themselves headed into the show ring as Sporthorses.
Showing off his extreme intelligence and good sense, Bucky is side passing a 55 gallon drum. You can see that it is so tall that my feet are almost brushing against it. Bucky considers this kind of challenge fun and games and is an absolute delight to ride and train.
Bucky loves to jump and is currently going very nicely over fences. He is fearless and enthusiastic and considers jumping one of his favorite activities.
Bucky and Mah Sabbah Bedu both won top fives in the 2005 Region 9 Championship show with Keith Kosel showing them admirably. Bucky was top five in both Open and ATH and Sabbah was top five in ATH.
Bucky is extremely well balanced with hard, straight legs and incredible strength and stamina. He is unlimited in his athletic ability, and training him is a delight as his intelligence and curiosity make him up for any challenge. He is at stud to qualified mares at $1000 with a live foal guarantee. Contact Susan for further breeding information.
Region 9 Championship show was great for Bucky. Not only was he Reserve Region 9 Champion Stallion ATH, but he was Top Five in Open as well. Keith Kosel showed him beautifully and although he was smaller than any horse in the ring, the judge rewarded his excellent conformation. Bucky and Susan were Reserve Region 9 Champion in Hunter Hack. Although he did not place in dressage, his scores were all in the high sixties and he was sixth out of large groups.
At age 15 Bucky is continuing his riding career helping riders progress into more advanced work.
