Long before the American Quarter Horse Association existed, the bloodlines that would
become the foundation of the Quarter Horse breed were being formed. One such set of bloodlines was being developed in South
Texas where Captain Richard King, founder of the King Ranch, began applying the breeding principles he perfected with his
cattle herd to his equine remuda.
King began by mating the native mares that roamed South Texas to imported Thoroughbreds
to refine the native stock and to increase its height for navigating through the brush that covers the land. When King died,
Robert M. Kleberg, Sr., Robert J. Klebert, Jr., and Caesar Kleberg succeeded to the King Ranch’s horse breeding program.
They soon discovered that the infusion of too much Thoroughbred blood "produced horses that were too nervous
to work cattle successfully, too delicate and thin-skinned to live off the country, too leggy, and too prone to sprains and
strains to negotiate the sudden stops, starts, and turns that are necessary" in working on a cattle ranch. What was needed,
they decided, was a horse with more traditional "quarter horse" characteristics.
They found it in the Old Sorrel, who the ranch purchased in 1916 from quarter horse breeder George Clegg,
and the Old Sorrell proved to be the finest cow horse the ranch owned. The ranch began breeding the Old Sorrel to its best
working mares, all with at least a quarter Thoroughbred blood and many with half. From the Old Sorrel's second foal crop came
Solis who proved to be a fine all-around ranch horse. Solis, in turn, was bred to Panda, a daughter of the Old Sorrel--half-borther
mated to half-sister, the line breeding technique that had proven so successful with the King Ranch's cattle. The resulting
colt, foaled sometime in the mid-1930s, was named Wimpy.
Around the same time, Robert M. Denhardt, the true founder of the American Quarter Horse Association, began
touring the American Southwest, chronicling the working cattle horses and the bloodlines that the cowboys used. Denhardt began
publishing articles and several books about his endeavors and discoveries, and soon interest arose across America in the horses
that the cowboys used. By early 1940, sufficient interest had been generated that Denhardt announced a meeting in Fort Worth,
Texas, to organize a breed registry for these ranch horses and to establish a stud book.
That meeting, on March 15, 1940, drew 75 attendees, resulted in the creation of the American Quarter Horse
Association, and produced the following statement of the registry's mission:
"The purpose of this Association shall be to collect, record, and preserve the pedigrees of Quarter Horses
in America, to publish a stud book and registry, and to stimulate any and all matters such as may pertain to the history,
breeding, exhibiting, publicity, sale, or improvements of this breed in America."
What was it about these horses that prompted the people who attended the meeting in Fort Worth to establish
a registry and stud book to preserve and track the breed’s development? Before the meeting adjourned, the 75 attendees
had drafted the following "Conformation of the Ideal Quarter Horse":
HEAD--The head of the Quarter Horse reflects alert intelligence. This is due to his short, broad head, topped by little
fox ears and by his wide-set kind eyes and large, sensitive nostrils over a shallow, firm mouth. Well developed jaws give
the impression of great strength.
NECK--The head of a Quarter Horse joins the neck at a near forty-five degree angle, with a distinct space between jaw-bone
and neck muscle. The medium length, slightly arched, full neck then bends into sloping shoulders.
SHOULDERS--The Quarter Horse's unusually good saddle back is created by his medium-high but sharp withers extending well
back and combining with his deep sloping shoulders so that the saddle is held in proper position for balanced action.
CHEST AND FORELEGS--The Quarter Horse is deep and broad chested, as indicated by his great heart girth and his wide-set
forelegs which blend into his shoulders. The smooth joints and very short cannons are set on clean fetlocks and the medium
length pasterns are supported by sound feet. The powerfully muscled forearm tapers to the knee whether viewed from front or
BACK--The short saddle back of the Quarter Horse is characterized by being close coupled and especially full and powerful
across the kidney. The barrell is formed by deep, well sprung ribs back to the hip joints, and the under line comes back straight
to the flank.
REAR QUARTERS--The rear quarters are broad, deep, and heavy, viewed from either side or rear, and are muscled so they
are full through the thigh, stifle, gaskin, and down to the hock. The hindleg is muscled inside and out, the whole indicating
the great driving power the Quarter Horse possesses. When viewed from the rear, there is great width extending evenly from
top of thigh to bottom of the stifle and gaskin. The hocks are wide, deep, straight, and clean.
BONE, LEGS, AND FEET--The flat, clean, flinty bones are free from fleshiness and puffs, but still show a world of substance.
The foot is well rounded and roomy, with an especially deep, open heel.
STANCE--The Quarter Horse normally stands perfectly at ease with his legs well under him; this explains his ability to
move quickly in any direction.
ACTION--The Quarter Horse is very collected in his actions, and turns or stops with noticeable ease and balance, with
his hocks always well under him.

Wimpy P-1 1937 -
Wimpy P-1 became a legend in 1941 when he was selected to receive
the first registration number in the new American Quarter Horse Association. When AQHA was established in 1940,
the founders agreed to reserve that first registration number for the Grand Champion Stallion at the 1941 Southwestern Exposition
in Fort Worth, Texas.
Wimpy was foaled in Kingsville, Texas, and was the product of a solid breeding
program in place at the King Ranch. He possessed excellent cow sense, good temperament, endurance and intelligence.
He passed these traits on to 174 offspring. In 1959, at the age of 22, Wimpy's life ended and he was buried on
the Cauble Ranch about 20 miles northwest of this location off FM 542 in Leon County. Wimpy is honored with a
statue that stands at the entrance to AQHA's International Headquarters in Amarillo, Texas, and was inducted into the American
Quarter Horse Hall of Fame in 1989.

King P-234 1932 - 1958
King was foaled in 1932, sixty-six years ago, some eight years before the
formation of the Quarter Horse registry. He was purchased by Jess Hankins for $800 in 1937. Foolish, some folks thought, but
by today's standards ... a downright bargain. Remember, this was the height of the Great Depression. King was a 5 year old
stallion when Jess bought him, then becoming King's third owner. He had been used for roping, general ranch work, and had
sired a few foals by this time.
King was blood bay and he had a magnificent hair coat. When he shed out in
the spring, gold flecks appeared, giving him an unusual sheen. He was quick to learn, easy to get along with, and possessed
plenty of cow sense. King, at maturity stood between 14.2 to 15 hands, well muscled and weighed from 1,150 to 1,200 pounds.
His excellent conformation became the standard for the Quarter Horse breed. He was greatly admired for his outstanding disposition
and willingness. For years Jess Hankins advertised King as the cornerstone of the breed ... in retrospect, an apt description!
Byrne James and his wife were driving down a street in Laredo,
Texas, one day in the early 1930's when they saw a yearling colt they had to own. He was a blood bay colt with black mane
and tail and black feet. Here was royalty on four legs.
A Mexican boy led the yearling down the dusty thoroughfare at a
walk. James slowed his car for a better look. Yes, it was quite a colt. And they followed the boy and the colt all the way
to their destination--the home of a Laredo horseman named Charlie Alexander. There, after a brief bargaining session, they
bought the yearling for $300.
It turned out this was no run-of-the-mill cowpony. Alexander had
acquired him from the Mamie Benevides Ranch at Laredo, and the youngster was a son of the noted running sire, Zantanon. That
$300 James paid for the colt was a flock of currency in those days and no doubt some of his neighbors in the sagebrush and
rattlesnake country around the James Ranch at Encinal might have figured Byrne got the short end of the deal. Turned
out this was more than just another horse. He was to become King P-234, the most famous Quarter Horse that ever lived.
Once back at the James Ranch, Byrne's missus didn't take long to
hang a name on the yearling. You've heard the expression "King of Beasts"? Well, to me, he was the King--superior to all the
rest..." Some thirty-five years later she recalled that the colt was a good-natured kind with an even disposition, yet a good
In those days Byrne James was a professional baseball player
in the spring and summer and a rancher the rest of the time. There was plenty of hard work to be done running cattle and in
those days it was mostly still done on horseback. As soon as he was big enough, young King found himself with a saddle and
a ranch hand on his back, doing general ranch work. King's future as a sire of "registered" Quarter Horses wasn't even dreamed
of. The formation of the Quarter Horse registry was still some seven years in the future. In those days, James remembers,
"ranchmen used horses for work. Very few of us ever took the trouble to find out the exact breeding on one."
But James did take the trouble to find out about King. Not only
that but he took the trouble to go out and buy both the sire and the dam of that colt. He paid $500 for Zantanon and he also
acquired Jabalina, (by The Strait Horse) King's dam. Further, James put a bunch of miles on his car to establish that the
colt is bred just like his papers say he is bred. The colt's birthdate was June 2, 1931. Byrne was to own two full sisters
of King before the young stallion passed into other hands. One of these came to a tragic end. She was about nine or ten months
old, as James recalls, and we had to rope her to get a hackamore on her. She fell over backward and broke her neck.
King's other full sister, Maria Elena, had a long and productive
career as a broodmare, producing some outstanding colts.
What delighted Byrne James and other ranchmen in the area was that
King represented an ideal stock horse, despite the fact that his sire was a small horse. Zantanon (See Texas & Southwestern
Horseman, Nov., 1965) has been described as standing slightly under 14 hands in height. Yet he was, in his prime, a heavy
muscled animal of excellent balance and conformation. Many of his colts, including King, inherited his muscle and some had
more height to boot. King's dam, Jabalina, stood 15 hands or taller. As King reached maturity, says James, he stood
between 14:3 and 15 hands and weighed from 1,150 to 1,200 pounds. By that time, King's obvious quality had attracted wide
attention in the south Texas area. King became a roping horse in 1933 partly because of James' pro baseball career.
When he took off his boots in favor of baseball spikes that year he decided to loan King to a friend and neighbor, Win DuBose.
In those days, DuBose was one of the good young ropers in that part of Texas--where roping has long been almost a way of life.
And while Byrne James played infield for the New York Giants, his young stallion was back home learning to "rate" a calf.
The work came easy to King. Win DuBose, who lives near Uvalde, Texas, remembers how easy it was to teach the horse.
"He was very quick to learn," remembers DuBose, "and good natured
for a stallion. He had a lot of cow sense. I wouldn't say he was the fastest horse I ever rode but there was no lost motion.
He was quick out of the box and quick to get to a calf." "A neighbor named Lester Gilleland and I would take turns roping
calves in the arena and after about thirty days we started taking him to small ropings...at first we had used a hackamore
bit on him but then we changed to metal."
Soon Win and another roper, Johnny Stevens, were hauling King to
the tough ropings throughout west and southwest Texas and they were winning their share. By the time Byrne James got home
from the baseball wars he could see that friend DuBose wanted to own the stallion. And so King changed hands for the third
time, on this occasion bringing $500. "That was a big price then," James smiles now. "We were in the depths of the depression."
During the following eighteen months that Win DuBose owned King
he recalls breeding about 25 mares to the stallion..."but we didn't keep a record, not knowing at the time that Quarter Horses
would ever be registered." "After a few years," DuBose wrote in 1966, "most of his (King's) colts in this immediate
vicinity were bought and taken away...I sold every direct offspring of King's that I owned and started breeding a few mares
to King April, owned by Morris Witt."
While he owned King, DuBose stood him to outside mares at a stud
fee of $10. And sometimes, unusual as it may seem today, he would keep visiting mares as long as three months--free. One of
the things about King that intrigued DuBose in the summer was the horse's color. Gold flecks would show up in King's bay coat,
giving him a striking sheen. "I never saw another like that," he says.
In 1937, when there was still no hint of the booming Quarter Horse
industry two decades in the future, Win DuBose decided to sell King. He had been in conversation with Jess Hankins of Rocksprings,
Texas, a few times about that subject but DuBose understandably was not eager to let a producing stallion go. Still, money
was always needed and a man couldn't own them all. In July Win told Jess he would sell the horse. The agreed-upon price was
$800. The deal hit Hankins at precisely the worst time.
"I had just that day spent all the money I had for a bunch of calves,"
Hankins recalled later. "So I borrowed the money from Lowell." (Lowell Hankins, Jess' brother). The deal was closed July 7,
Not just everybody figured in 1937 that a cow horse was worth any
$800. "People said I was crazy and would go broke," Jess chuckled long afterward. For a few years there, of course, King did
not create any surge of wealth for the Hankins family. The stallion was offered at a $15 stud fee the first year of breeding.
Jess raised the fee to $25 the next year--although he remembers "I didn't get too many mares in those days at any price."
But the south Texan hadn't bought the horse on a whim. "I liked his conformation," Hankins says, "and I hadn't seen a horse
around like him. I saw his colts--he was producing some fine ones by all kinds of mares--and he had the speed to produce fast
As the years passed and the Quarter Horse registry was formed (in
1940) King began to produce the colts that would make him the most famous sire of the breed. It would take pages to list them
all. At the time of his death, King had produced 520 registered foals.
In Jess Hankins' own judgement, two horses that helped establish
King's breeding fame were his sons Poco Bueno and Royal King--both great sires in their own right. By the fine mare Queen
H, King produced Squaw H and Hank H, outstanding running horses. And 89'er by King also ran and produced running horses.
But it was in the conformation and "doing" department that this stallion joined the ranks of the immortal breeding animals.
Consider these other King colts, picked at random: Old Taylor, Captain Jess, Little Tom B., King Joe Boy, Beaver Creek, Major
King and Zantanon H. Among his outstanding broodmares was O'Quinn's Midget, one of the few Quarter mares ever to produce six
At his death, King had sired Quarter Horses which thoroughly dominated
most phases of the breed's performance activity--particularly cutting competition. Among his get were 46 Register of Merit
qualifiers, eleven of which earned their AQHA Championships. On the list of leading sires of cutting horses, from 1951 to
1956, King led with 24 qualifiers. Poco Bueno by King was second with 24 and Royal King by King was third with 16. Another
of his sons, Kings Joe Boy, was fifth with seven qualifiers.
Statistics, however, fail to fully measure this animal's impact
on the Quarter Horse breed. Space prohibits a full list, not only of his own get, but of the thousands of third and fourth
generations of King-bred horses that are today the living proof of his potency and quality. Further, the animal's appearance
and the performance of his offspring excited the imagination of thousands of new horse owners in the 1950's when the breed
began to grow rapidly--and the term "King-bred" became a household phrase among horsemen.
Near the end of his long career, Owner Jess Hankins could legitimately
advertise King P-234 as the "Cornerstone of an Industry." That many shared this view was proved by the number of owners who
paid substantial fees in the 1950's to get a colt by King. His breeding fee at the time of his death was $2,500.
To the Hankins family, the stallion represented a lot more than
a successful investment. He was one of the family. He remained a gentle horse all of his life and Jess often noted that "any
kid who had ever handled a horse could ride him" Mrs. Hankins remembers too that there was one thing in particular King liked:
"Every time Jess went out to the corral, he'd stick his head over Jess' shoulder--for his ears to be cleaned out."
At the age of 26 King's life ended--March 24, 1958. He died of
a heart attack. Noted the Quarter Horse Journal: No other stallion now living can boast such a record as King's and only time
will tell when another will equal it. Wagon Wheel Ranch Quarter Horses; Elaine C. and Fred G. Gist, Owners, believe
that the blood of King are needed! Therefore, we have gathered together, and are currently producing the highest percentage
King P-234 bred horses in the world today, to the best of our knowledge.

Poco Bueno 1944 - 1969
The young Poco Bueno was given the name of his dam's sire.
He might have been called Muy Bueno -"very good" - if he'd inherited King's regal blood bay color. As
a yearling at the 1945 Fort Worth Stock Show in early February, he placed fifth. Hankins priced him at $1,250, but there were
Poco Bueno filled out considerably by the big show at Stamford, Texas, on July 4. He won his class,
and even generated some interest from breeders like Calfornians Frank Vessels and Channing Peak. But Hankins had raised the
yearling's price to $3,500.
Too rich, they decided.
In October, Poco Bueno was loaded onto the trailer headed for San Angelo, Texas, and
the Hankins Brothers' first production sale. Jess's brother, J.O., told him he thought he might be making a mistake letting
the brown colt go. But the breeding program's loss was the sale average's gain. The little brown colt topped the sale with
a bid of $5,700.
His new owner, E. Paul Waggoner of Vernon, Texas, was a flamboyant heir to the 500,000-acre
Waggoner ranch and the rich oil deposits below its surface. Waggoner had Poco Bueno shipped to his Three D Stock Farm at Arlington,
Texas, between Dallas and Fort Worth, Texas, where the Three D's trainer, Bob Burton, broke him to ride. Burton nicknamed
the brown stallion "Pokey," and while he was making a calf roping horse out of him, discovered ol' Pokey had an innate talent
Poco Bueno stood 14.3 hands and weighed 1,150 pounds. His show career
started when he was named champion yearling stallion at the Texas Cowboy Reunion Quarter Horse Show in Stamford. He was grand
champion stallion in the '40's at Denver's National Western Stock Show, the Southwestern Exposition and Fat Stock Show in
Fort Worth, State Fair of Texas in Dallas and the American Royal Livestock Show in Kansas City. As a 4-year-old, in 1948,
Poco Bueno started his performance career as a cutting horse, and his amazing ability helped him to quickly acquire an impressive
record - and a legion of fans. He was the first quarter horse to be insured for $100,000.00. Poco Bueno died November 28, 1969 and Mr. Waggoner left specific instructions in his will
that Poco Bueno was to be buried in a standing position in a grave across from the ranch entrance on Hwy. 283. The plot of ground was landscaped with trees and grass. A granite marker, weighing 4
tons, was engraved with his name, picture and the following: Champion and Sire of Champions. In 1990, Poco Bueno was inducted
into the American Quarter Horse Hall of Fame.
