Sir Galahad was one of the most
refined miniature stallions in history. Foaled in 1966, he possessed the
qualities that we breed for and seldom get today. He was Mr. Bond's
favorite stallion and held the honor of being pastured in the front yard
of their home in Lavonia, Georgia. After Mr. Bond's death, most of the
herd was dispersed at public auction that brought people from coast to
coast to bid on the two hundred plus lots. Sir Galahad sold for a
remarkable $7,000 in the sale in October of 1992 - remarkable since he was
blind and 26 years old!! Purchased by Bob and Janet Lee of Hunt House
Farms he was put down in 1997 because of failing health.
The footnote in the catalog shows the
importance of the 27 1/2" sire in the Bond's breeding program:
of Champions: Bond Boozer, Bond Apollo, Bond Chauncey, Bond Coppertone,
Bond Strut Ur Stuff, Bond Galahad's Legacy, and Bond Cheerio. Also
grandsire of Bond Little Lucy B, National Grand Champion Mare."
