Hopefully you have a "Big Red" Saddlebred or Thoroughbred with four white stockings and a white diamond blaze. If so, this is the oil on canvas painting for you.
This is a painting of "Redwood Emperor" (1947-1965), a saddlebred, I believe, ASHR 22664, a grandson of the famous " Bourbon King" ASHR 1788, who I believe was foaled in 1930 and lived til 1930. If I am incorrect please send me the correct information as I'm unfamiliar with the ASHR registration.
In Kentucky, an unusual colt of predominantly trotting blood with a dash of Denmark was foaled in 1900. Bourbon King was sold as a weanling to Allie G. Jones, North Middletown, Kentucky. He was a sensation as a five-gaited show stallion, winning the grand championship at the Louisville Horse show as a three-year-old. Living to the age of 30, Bourbon King was the great progenitor of the Chief Family.
