Thanks to 6 Shoe Quarter Horses for these photos of Kingfisher:

Kingfisher retired in winter 2004...  in a nice warm sunny climate!

Blues Kingfisher; retired 1977 blue roan stallion, last living son of Blue Valentine; owned by Charley Mahler, Allen, Nebraska. Most photos courtesy of Mary Scruggs, 6 Shoe Quarter Horses, MS, where Blue is now enjoying his retirement.


Blues Kingfisher the last living son of Blue Valentine, foaled in 1977, shown here fall 2008 at 31 years young babysitting his grandget. Mary said "the babies love to go over to Kingfisher's stall to visit, so we let him out to visit." According to Mary and Lee Scruggs, "Kingfisher is doing great! He still trots and lopes around his lot playing and aggravating his son Mr Blue Tom Hancock in the next lot. Years ago Kingfisher had a reaction to banamine, so the Scruggs have been scared to give him anything since. They always take him to CSU College of Veterinary Medicine for all his vaccinations just in case he has a bad reaction (he never has). Kingfisher was so cute to watch the last visit to CVM; "He bowed up and nickered at the girls and totally thought he was 10 years old." There is no doubt that the slick, fat & sassy Blues Kingfisher is enjoying a healthy and happy retirement under the loving and watchful care of Mary & Lee Scruggs of 6 Shoe Quarter Horses.
