Skip Zan Parr

This note from Marion Hoffman who along with her husband Lorne owned Skip Zan Parr tells you what they loved about him. 

Although the info in this packet sets out the accomplishments of Zan and some of his colts, it doesn't say anything about the horse himself. We want to tell you why we think he is an outstanding individual.

When we were looking for a stud we were at the "World Show" where we had checked out quite a few colts. It was getting toward the end of the week and those colts had been penned up for ten days and it was evident on at least one that we looked at. He tried to both bite and kick Lorne in the course of a three minute viewing. When we went to look at Skip Zan Parr, the tack box was locked and the gal's husband had the key, so she kicked around in the straw and found a twine and figure eighted it around Zan's head and stood him up in the alley way. With horses milling all around, up and down the alley, he just stood there, alert but calm. We were impressed. 

He was a dream to train, the only problem being that the trainer didn't want to ride the other horses because he was enjoying Zan so much. When we showed him you could stand him on the rail waiting for a class to begin, right in among the mares and he would have a nap. At his stall he slept while others worked themselves into a sweat. 

When we have inexperienced people wo want to ride a horse, we put them on Zan because he seems to sense their inexperience and takes great care of them. 

When it isn't breeding season, we turn Zan out with our geldings. He lets them know that he is boss, but he is kind and has never kicked or hurt any of the geldings. 

All of this is not to say he is a dead head. When you give him a job to do he is right there, as Lorne can certainly attest to when he comes out of the roping box. You'd better be ready!

One of the fun things about Zan is to have owners of his colts tell us how nice they are to start and how willing they are to learn. In fact, people like them so well that we have trouble trying to find ones people will sell when we have an interested buyer. 

He's a great old stallion, partly because of the super colts he throws and partly because he is talented, amiable and just so nice to have around.
