Good POAs

To Our POA family I have been involved in the horse industry since 1975 with Appaloosa and Quarter horses. I started judging in 1980, my mentor in the horse industry, OJ Martin, Appaloosa Hall of Fame inductee who passed away in 2012. His philosophy in life, God, Family and Horses in that order. That philosophy has always been my guide. 2008 brought me in a new direction when I was introduced to the POA world. This association has led me and my wife, Teresa in a new direction. We find the POA world to be family oriented where friendships are built inside and outside the showpen. It began when I became involved with the Breeders Challenge winning the first weanling stallion class. I became acquainted with Larry & Crystal Myers and began showing halter ponies for Crystalviewpoas. CVs Silent Starlette, CVs Silent Star, DKs Bright Comet, Zippos Starchex, regional and International winners. I campaigned Handsome Hollywood Star who was International Yearling stallion in 2009 We began breeding our Appaloosa mares to CR Star Kid. Secret Romance bred to Star Kid produced CA Secret Star who was International yearling champion in 2010. CA Star Kid Rock was Reserve High Point 2 yr old in 2012 and the Super Pony of the Breeders Challenge.

We acquired Ima Impulsive Star in 2010. He had already produced 2 champions, Spectacular Impulse and Hot Commodity. Bred to Secret Romance he produced CA Secret Impulsive Star 2013’s Congress and International Futurity Champion owned now by Russ and Carol Davidson and 2013’s Breeders Challenge Futurity Champion, Laura Richardson’s, Cowboy’s Ain’t Easy to Love.

With the dispersal of Crystalviewpoas, we plan to focus our breeding program on Ima Impulsive Star. A Fewspot son of A Sudden Impulse and Strand of Pearls, a CR Star Kid daughter, he offers us color, conformation and movement with a calm disposition, all the qualities that the modern POA should offer. Our motto is Quality not quantity, so you will find Teresa and me at the fall futurities presenting a “Few Good Poas” for your consideration. God Bless CA & Teresa Good
