Rugged Lark - Original Release
American Quarter Horse stallion Rugged Lark was a two-time AQHA World Show Superhorse and three-time World Champion! He is only one of two stallions to go on to have foals that later became AQHA Superhorses as well. He was inducted into the AQHA Hall of Fame in 2006. After his death, his owner, Hall of Fame horsewoman Carol Harris donated all of his memorabilia, trophies, and larger-than-life bronze statue to the Florida Agriculture Center and Horse Park in Ocala, Florida, saying that the horse’s legacy should be in public hands... “I don’t think there is another horse in the country that was as loved. We offered him to everyone. We let everybody touch him. We let kids sit on him. He would stand there for three, four hours at a time. Never once did he not offer to let anyone love on him,” Harris said.
She said the gift was a way of giving back to the area that gave her so much. [Source: www.ocala.com]
Breyer honored the handsome stallion with his own sculpt in 1989. It was available through 1999, with the exception of one year (1996). It shows his calm disposition and solid red bay coat.
This fellow is still attached in his box. His box is in rough shape, but it still protects him well.
