Bum's Warrior came into my life 25 years ago - it was love at first sight. Not only was he a very well bred stallion - by World Grand Champion Delight Bumin Around, by WC Sun's Delight, by WC Midnight Sun and out of a mare that goes back to Society Man in just 3 generations...he was a strikingly beautiful horse with sharp ears, a small chiselled face and great presence.

Warrior has been a very popular breeding stallion for 25 years. He's also been my "mount of choice!!"  He is so much fun to ride...he loves to go places and do things...some horses are barn-sour and want to go back to the barn...not Warrior...he wants to see what's over the next hill...and he never gets tired...he would have been a great endurance horse.

Even up to just a couple months ago, Warrior would run more than any other stallion when he was turned out to exercise.. ..he would come when called and he would rear on command. He all but talks...

And then the years started to catch up with him...his rear legs have grown weak (too much rearing probably!!!) and he is no longer able to mount the mares. But he hasn't been fired from his other job because of age...he still talks to the mares and tells us if they are ready to be bred. He is the world's greatest teasing stallion...always a gentleman.

Warrior will always own my heart....

On July 6, 2006, Bum's Warrior was sent ahead to pastures, ever green.  He will be sorely missed by all who knew him.

Bumís Warrior, at 28 years old, was one of the last living sons of World Grand Champion Delight Buminí Around.  He was also out of a Mack Kís Castro mare whose pedigree goes back to Society Man in just two generations.   That is very old blood!
Elaine Morrill brought a Pushover mare in to be bred to Gold Rush, all the way from Fayetteville, TN. She took this shot of Warrior on Sunday morning, Nov. 10/04
Is this beautiful ... or what!!!!

Warrior was a 15.2 hand elegant mahogany bay with great presence.  His neck came straight up out of his shoulders and he had a beautiful, small head with hooked ears and large, expressive eyes.

Warrior was a show horse in Tennessee as a two and three year old, and then was an outstanding trail and pleasure mount with a willing attitude and the smoothest of gaits.
