Sunrise’s Golden Image named Top 5 Breeding Sire
The MFTHBA congratulates Sunrise’s Golden Image on being named a Top 5 MFTHBA Breeding sire. Owned by Brian and Tara Land of Dora, Missouri, Sunrise’s Golden Image is named a Top 5 Breeding Sire for the first time. Bred by Larry Stevens of Marshfield, Missouri, the Lands have owned Sunrise’s Golden Image since 2014. Sunrise’s Golden Image was sired by Southern Sunrise and out of Traveler’s Sweet Magnolia F.D.S (by Missouri Traveler E).
The MFTHBA thanks Brian and Tara Land for their contributions to the future generations of Missouri Fox Trotters through their stallion, Sunrise’s Golden Image. Sunrise’s Golden Image and Mr. and Mrs. Land will be formally recognized for this accomplishment at the 2017 Spring Show and Three Year Old Futurity.
The Breeding Sire of the Year award was established by the MFTHBA Membership Committee to recognize stallions providing significant impact to the continuation of the breed. In addition, the award was designed to encourage foal registration in a timely manner, something that helps the MFTHBA in its task to preserve the registry of the breed.
The criteria for the award are simple:
- All stallions who submit an on-time stallion breeding report are eligible.
- The 2016 Top 5 list represents the stallions with the most foals born in 2016 and registered with the MFTHBA by December 31, 2016.
