1998 W.P.C.S.A. Legion of Merit Sire
In Loving Memory
Sired by top performance stallion, *Cusop Sheriff, and out of black Duntulm's Two Step, herself a daughter of *Coed Coch Ballog, Tango carries a good percentage of Criban Victor blood, 5 times National Champion in Wales.
Tango began his breeding career at Westrum's Welsh Ponies in North Dakota, and produced numerous daughters including Champion Westrum's Bay Beauty.
In the early '70's Larry Gates of Open Gate Pony Farm, Shreveport, Louisiana, purchased a large group of Tango daughters from Westrum's. These daughters figure in pedigrees in many farms across the country.
In the fall of 1975 Tango was purchased by Bristol Pony Farm and brought to Texas. He was the first "big" B at Bristol and became a pillar of the breeding program there. While at Bristol he was trained and shown, winning in English and Western Pleasure.
In 1976 Tango was Grand Champion at the American
National Welsh Show and was the W.P.C.S.A. National Champion Section B Stallion.
In 1981 he was purchased by RosMel Pony Farm where he has produced numerous champions in all disciplines. He was the foundation Section B stallion at RosMel and two sons and eight daughters have been retained to carry on Tango's legacy.
The two sons of Tango that we have kept are National Champion RosMel Cotillion, a 14 hand chestnut, and Champion RosMel's Quadrille, a 13.1 hand black. They are both full brothers and are out of Supreme Champion HW Gwyndy Glo.
The Tango daughters that we have retained for our breeding program are:
The ponies contributing to Tango's Sire Legion of Merit are RosMel's Sun Promenade, 480 points; RosMel Cotillion, 486 points; RosMel's Raphael, 599 points; Bristol Solome, 376 points; and Buandwrs Lightning, 300 points. These points were won in hunter, pleasure driving, English and Western Pleasure and breeding classes. Tango has a total of 3,456 points.
We at RosMel Welsh Pony Farm feel very fortunate to have had the influence of this wonderful stallion in our breeding program.
