(Black Velvet Dark Knight x Teluras Black Gold)
1997 Black Mare

This lovely mare has a pedigree that is mostly Western Working Family. Her sire Black Velvet Dark Knight is by Edelweiss Magic Man, a typey correct sire who passed on his many good traits consistently. Sire of well over 100 get, his pedigree is mostly Government with some Brunk in the top portion, some Old Vermont scattered through the pedigree, and Old Midwest and Western Working Family in the bottom mare line.


The dam of Black Star’s sire Black Velvet Dark Knight is mostly Western Working Family. The sire line goes to Green Meads Richmond who has some Old Vermont through his sire and also a cross to Upwey Ben Don through his dam. However, the rest of Black Star’s paternal granddam’s pedigree is Western Working Family. There is Sid Spencer breeding behind Shasta Daisy who is by Sid’s beloved working ranch stallion Antman. There is Dapper Dan and an Impala mare—all of old California lines. Impala Claudette has two crosses to Redman through her dam and a sire line back to Clark Ringling’s breeding. When bred to Waseeka Peter Piper, she gave that stallion some of his very best get.


The dam of Black Star, Teluras Black Gold, is pure Western Working Family. She is by Hedlites Micky Waer, by Waers Black Rascal by Monte L by Major RM and out of Jumina. This is a sire line of Romanesque with Linsley and old Brunk. Black Rascal is out of Gontola by Flyhawk and out of a Jubilee King mare. The dam of Micky Waer, Hedlites Kitty Clover is all old California breeding and is the result of a Mountcrest Sellman daughter being bred to her son. Mountcrest Sellman was an excellent Baroque stallion who was very important in helping to establish the early ranch Morgans in California. Teluras Black Gold’s dam, Danni-Jo, is also pure old California Morgans. She has Dapper Dan and his brother Muscle Man behind her, both by Trilson, and a full sister to Muscle Man also. The mare lines are nearly all tracing back to the mares of Richard Sellman who came to California to establish the breed in this state. One mare line goes to Elmer Brown of Kansas, that other cornerstone of the Western Working Family.
