Buckeroo, her father and the most famous miniature horse
in the world. On this photograph, he is 30 years old.

Elegant Lace, is Buckeroo's first daughter arrived in Europe with her own sister Aaprina in Buckeroo's Snowy Lace.

Today, only four are in Europe and three are in France. Two of them are at Modello's Farm and the third one, the beautiful Zha Zha Buckeroo, is at "Maryhorse Miniatures", our friend Maryline Tournier's farm.

For those who are not familiar with the bloodlines of this marvellous breed of purebred American miniature horses, let us say how important Buckeroo is in the world of miniature horses.

Buckeroo is no doubt the most famous miniature horse in the world. Today, he is 31 years old and has produced during all these years an inescapable bloodline as well as a multitude of "World Champions". As everything beautiful and having worldwide success, he has often been criticized! And today some people say his standard is over...

The best American breeders know that it is not the case and they cross breed him with specific bloodlines who keep on producing horses of an always unequalled beauty.

The best evidence: each year, the Dallas World Show has among its top winners sons and daughters or granddaughters or grandsons of the incomparable Buckeroo!


At Modello's farm we have two daughters and a son of Buckeroo! It has not been easy to acquire them but we are delighted. Phantom Buckeroo stands up to the legend, he is the father of the best current champions in Europe: Modello Blue Phantom Forever and Hallmarks Phantom Stetson.

Without talking of his other foals, all equally winners in shows.

Elegante Lace does not either fall short to the Buckeroo tradition: so far she has participated in only three shows but each time she won awards.
