Rhotens Little Dandy
32" Black pinto
AMHA A 04280 & AMHR 56415A
I love Rhotens Little Dandy and have lots in my herd. To get an idea of his progeny’s movement, here are videos:
This is a grandson of Rhotens Little Dandy http://youtu.be/UMKKCwdKJF4 He is so athletic. We brought him home and he had not jumped for about 6 years. He cleared 42” without any hesitation. I was about ready to kill my youngest who was doing this with him and not warming him up. But he loved it. Yes, the youngest was stopped. Beamer produced the following horse and I think he is one of the finest movers. Beamer also has proven himself in the halter arena placing in the top five at AMHR Nationals.
Another Rhotens Little Dandy grandson I loved was Design.....Woodland Acres Bi Dandys Fire Design. I found him in a backyard untrained and aggressive. But, after working with him for almost 2 years, he went and won World Reserve Grand Champion Country Pleasure horse in 2012. Click here to see him.
This is another stallion that we own that is a grandson of Rhotens L.D. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=moo_J8NlLoY
Here is a Moon Man son. He toed out badly on the front, but does not throw this at all. I believe it was lack of hoof care despite the discussion, for his babies do not get his legs. He is a grandson of Rhotens L. D. The start of this video shows the Christmas Electric Light parade http://www.youtube.com/user/pamperedpups#p/u/30/612emQNIPh8 Here is my love of the year, a 2011 filly of his that trots wonderfully and does not toe out. http://www.youtube.com/user/pamperedpups#p/u/8/64lEG4Hh_Fs This was another filly of his http://www.youtube.com/user/pamperedpups#p/u/58/NdXYj-Pnkfw
This mare is a granddaughter of Rhotens LD and her father is Grosshills Night Rhythm http://www.youtube.com/user/pamperedpups#p/u/48/0gQFZt—8hs. The other filly in the video is also a granddaughter and we just got her going in cart. She is incredibly fast for being so little. About 30” tall and keeps up with our bigger minis no problem. Fancy enough for single or roadster.
Here is still another grandson of Rhotens LD. This horse is owned by Aimee Wheater and is incredibly athletic again http://www.youtube.com/user/pamperedpups#p/u/55/BsNooJu7qeI
Here is a son of Rhotens L.D. that was my daughter’s favorite horse for a long time! We don’t own this boy either. http://www.youtube.com/user/pamperedpups#p/u/83/uyanInOVCmU
Finally, here is another grandson to Rhotens L.D. (this one is for sale) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2bs4lNa7-KE
Rhotens Little Dandy has probably contributed more the the miniature horse driving arena than any other horse. He sired Grosshill Dandys Special Edition, NFC Dandys Moon Man, Grosshills Night Rhythm, NFC Dandys Shady Lady, NFCs Candy Dandy, NFCs Dandy Shonna< Vermilyea Farms Dandys Legend and countless halter chmapions too!
