Walk on Top
It is with mixed emotions that this article is being written - fond memories of a friend and sadness of the realization that I will never see him again.
Walk On Top died on Sunday, April 24th, at Just A Plain Farm in Cochranville, Pa. He had been leased by Caroline Stern of Just A Plain Farm for the 2004 & 2005 breeding season. Caroline said that he had suffered a heart attack and died instantly.
Walk On Top was owned by Anne Barlow Ramsay of Annie B. Farm and Helmut & Margret Schrant of Meadow Brook Farm. He was purchased in 1992 at the start of the 100 Day Stallion Performance Test. After passing a vet exam at UC Davis he was officially ours. We were now the proud owners of a young and talented stallion and we were hopeful that he would successfully complete the 100 Day Test. And indeed that is exactly what he did - he was 3rd overall with a score of 129.22 points which earned him his first star. We were pleasantly surprised to learn that he had earned 9's for temperament, trot, jumping and working ability and even a 10 for his walk!
When he produced 10 premium foals he earned his second star. Currently he has produced 26 premium foals and this number has the ability to increase because it does not include his current foal crop and future foals conceived via frozen semen.
Walk On Top had a flamboyant, energetic and gentle personality. He was successfully competed in Dressage, eventing and jumping. Confirming him an all around athlete!
Walk On Top is survived by his many multi talented off spring that we now have the great pleasure to observe in various competitions. His legacy lives on!
