    OK It does seem that during the 1970's we had horse shows full of great ponies. I am going to take a walk down memory lane here.

    Any info/insight on what happened to these wonderfull ponies is welcome.

    Liseter Gold Coin
    Liseter Goldilocks
    Shenandoah Opal
    Tid Bit
    Southern Grey
    Dresden
    Rapunzel
    Easter Sunday
    Millbrooks Make Believe
    SlipStitch
    Hi Noon
    Hi Fly
    Added Touch
    Martini Mouse
    The Flying Dutchman
    Liseter Brilliant Ovation
    GlanNant Primrose Lane
    Kiss Me Not

    This is a start, and just from memory.
    Grant it, some of these ponies have passed away but I hope they had a wonderfull life.

    Easter Sunday died in a barn fire in NY,
    GlanNant Primrose Lane became a great broodmare for GlanNant Farm. I believe Dresden passed away in the last few years. Anyone else know "What happened to.....?"

    While Kiss Me Not was foaled in 1974, she was more a pony of the 80s.

    She was last shown in CA, by Jennifer Stillman and retired in 1997 at the Garden. She is living at the Forte's farm in PA, who have owned her since the early 90s.

    She had one foal, by Viscount.

    Here's another one, a bit earlier than the 70's....Midget and Nancy Baroody. AHSA High Score Champion Small Pony Hunter for 4 consecutive years in the late 60's. I'm looking at a picture of her in an old HORSES magazine, and she was such a darling dappled gray pony! She looked to be reaching the "sadly outgrown" point, and the ad mentioned she had been sold to Sindy Paul.

    Another Great One -
    Liseter's Fan-tan - AHSA Small Pony Finals Champion 1976,1978. Was eventually sold to a riding stable in Moorestown New Jersey and became the first pony of Robert Allen's son at his Woodedge Stables. Was then used in Woodedge's lesson programs until 1995 when she was retired to Cape May County. She passed away in early April, 1999.

    A friend of mine had one of Greg's old ponies an era after he did - she was a Millbrooks, and her barn name was Kipper, but I don't remember the rest of her show name! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif[/img]

    Dresden was Gerry Goldman's. She was a fabulous pony. Unfortuneately, Dresden died in a barn fire.

    Heehee Short Stirrup is the cutest name for a pony!

    I believe Evan Coluccio used to show Shenandoah Sundowner a few years back. . .

    Were there any babies from Dresdan? Had heard she died Dome, but didn't know in a barn fire, how awful! She was a wonderful pony.

    Wasn't Ready Penny the pony from A Very Young Rider??? Was Wet Paint the other? Or was it Fresh Paint? Were they even real ponies? They seemed real in my mind! http://www.chronofhorse.com/ubb/rolleyes.gif

    I believe that Short Stop was last owned by the Sorensen's. Holly passed the reins on to her younger sister in the late 80's. I believe he was retired after that. Not sure where he is now.

    I thought that Channel and Anisha Maya both died while owned by David Ziff. I'm not 100% sure, though.
