One of my favorite combo's is a Dreamazon and Sea Captain. The beauty, disposition and ability to work for a living is really special.
Now, here's an odd little story I will tell on one of my friends. Gives you an idea how people are treated in barns before becoming the "management" and maybe give a reminder to people about how they speak to people. Most all apprentices are experienced horse people before they ever join the program, it's a matter of continueing the education and being able to network and get a foothold in the industry. So, people are visiting the farm and comment on what a beautiful Andalusian that Dreamazon is. The girl who had been showing them about the farm politely remarks that no, he is a PB Arab and one of Mrs. T.'s favorites. Something to that effect anyway. This visitor stated that she knew an Andalusian when she saw one and she didn't need some STALL CLEANER educating her on the horses. Hmmmmm. Sign out front at the gate says something about it being an ARABIAN farm. Oh well, but I guess Dreamazon was quite talented, he could even portray a different breed!

LOL, I know what you mean about the 'stall cleaner' remarks as an apprentice...sometimes we were the only staff on the farm when visitors would drop by (Al-Marah Micanopy in FL, early 80s). Often most of the stallions would be gone to a show, but I loved showing off their babies, especially AM Count Pine's...I know they made a great impression. Dreamazon came much later, so I never knew a lot about him except that he was beautiful and Mrs. T was so happy to have him. I've seen a few of his daughters and granddaughters, beautiful and substantial mares, even though I've heard Dreamazon himself wasn't a big guy.

He was a little guy until he decided to show off. Beautiful guy and he knew it. He really seemed to adore Mrs. T. as well.
Funny, I guess, but as much as I loved his offspring, since he was so vastly adored by so many, I have an obtuse personality that ends up gravitating to the ones that are getting less attention. Sea Captain was still breeding and pretty much big man on campus, Dreamazon was the darling. Count Pine was a quiet gentleman. Ibn Gidason, an other quiet gentleman. Canadian Beau, a gentleman with a mischievous spark that would suprize you on his daily walk down to his pasture by the office! Lea Baron an other gentleman that loved having a run off his stall because he didn't like extremes in weather. Not too bright, not dark, not too cold, wet, hot....etc.

Does anyone happen to have the picture of him when he is in a halter and it looks almost like coins that are on the halter too?

There's a few Dreamazon sons I always wondered what happened to. Seemed like nice guys, Clem Dreamon (think he was out of Demittasse, C. Beau daughter), Dreamy Smile (probably out of Centime, an other C. Beau Daughter), Mr. Dream (maybe out of Missea?). I think it was Dreamy Smile that Becky Hart did a critique and presentation on conformation my first winter forum. As I recall, he did well.
Funny how the learning experience works. I always figured when my favorite wasn't the breeder's favorite, I still had some learning to do! I still feel very blessed to have met the horses and people that I did though. It's amazing to be at a farm where you may not bond with each and every horse on the place, but that every single one of them have such lovely dispositions that if you did have the chance to handle them individually a bond would surely be made.
Edited because I wanted to add a compliment to OakLawn on Mia. Very pretty little girl. I'm jealous you have a Pine daughter. I saw a little while ago that Yeo Girl was for sale and if I had the time, money and a more understanding husband I would have tried to get her. I always loved anyone Pine related. Has Seafilly ever told you any of her stories? She has lovely memories of him too. She nicely gave me a little thrill and told me some past history.
