    Default Anyone have a photo of Minnesota Mac?

    I've Googled and come up with nothing. Does anyone have a suggestion of where I can find a pic of the stallion Minnesota Mac?

    Try his breeders to see if they have one. Tartan Farms, now called Winding Oaks Farm. They have a website called windingoaks.com.

    Hmmm, I don't believe any of the original ownership interest of Tartan (heirs and otherwise) is involved in Winding Oaks. McKnight died a while ago and we all remember when Mrs. Genter's horses were dispersed, even Nerud is gone. I think Winding Oaks just has the privilege owning the grand old farm and tending to the plots of really famous Tartan bred horses like Dr. Fager, My Dear Girl and In Reality.

    The Florida Horse might have some old pictures or old issues with his picture - I used to remember seeing it all the time.

    Just thought Winding Oaks may have inherited some of the photos of the greats of the farm and have them online or the ability to do so. They have a very nice website.

    I'm sorry, I forgot to look! I will make a note now though.

    Very impressive - he is a good looking boy.

    I was looking for a photo of him sometime in the last year as I have a horse with MM in the pedigree, and now I cant remember which one it is.

    Wow, he is a handsome dude! Could you send that in to the Pedigree Query site so that they can add him into their photo files?

    I did add his picture link to his pedigree. I don't know anyone actually ON the site that does that, if anyone does tell them to feel free to use any of the pictures of him or the real horses in my photobucket for their site.

    Summerhorse,

    Thank you so much!!! I had been searching for a while for a picture of him and turned up nothing. He was a really fabulous looking guy.

    Here's the pedigree for my mare that prompted my search. She has him twice in the bottom.

    Here's a picture of her. She's currently in foal to a welsh stallion.

    Thanks again for the picture. I really appreciate it.
