"Lee Miller" <>. Owner of 2 "pure" Berndt mares in South Dakota: I asked Lee to give me (or a preservation breeder) first right of refusal if he ever sells these mares. He says they are a blessing in his life. He did talk about breeding them, but I have not been able to get in contact with him recently. I emailed him again, awaiting a current update. ~ September 2020.

"I live here on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota. Iím not looking so much into selling horses or making profit from them but mainly for preservation of the old Lakota /Native Lines, reintroducing them back to our people, healing for our children that are hurting and lost, taking the horses on the annual Chief Bigfoot /Crazy Horse memorial rides and other rides we have throughout the year. We do traditional Lakota young menís and womenís camps so I want to teach them about our relationship with the horse nations. Also I work at an all girls school and will like to incorporate the horse into the curriculum. One of my horses is a 2 yr old Mustang/Appy Grulla stud, a 3 yr old Mustang/Nakota Grulla mare, and a 1 year old blue roan mustang filly (Yvette said they are from Lakota lines but I am not sure exactly what lines)?. The 2 yr old Bay Curly filly is different then the rest. Sheís more docile and acts like will be a breeze to train. The grullas are a little more on the wild side."

Jon Eagle Sr.Jon Eagle Sr <> Wednesday, August 12, 2020. FB Msg from Jon Eagle Sr., Tribal Historic Preservation Officer, Standing Rock Sioux Tribe. "Hi Donna. Iím curious now. Curly horses came up at a recent meeting with Hunkpapa horsemen. Iíd like to track these horses down if there are any left? Are there any from the Bad Warrior line available? They came up in a conversation with older relatives from Little Eagle, SD. They kept saying SanSan. I never heard that word before so I asked. Thatís our word for curly horses. They told me the story; then I remembered you reaching out to me years ago. I went back through my messenger and realized that was the same horse(s) they were taking about. The sorrel stud (Teddy's red dun brother) on the left looks like what they described. Also the mare on the left in the photos you sent also looks like what they described. (Angelica) I speak Lakota but I have never heard anyone speak of these horses before and didnít understand “SanSan.” There was a sadness in their story. They asked me to track them down if I can. I promised them Iíd try. Ernie was a friend of my dad's. I didnít make the connection before. When foals are available weíd be interested."

Joshua and Warrior TornadoJoshua Felicity, from Wyola Montana (Crow Reservation). Joshua as a boy (a few years back, let's not go into how far), took an SC colt (Warrior Tornado or "Nado") off my hands, when I was losing ranch. He raised the colt who (2018) won a pickup truck, team roping on him. This colt is a younger full brother to Warrior Wind.

Curly Spanish Stockhorses

Unicorns of the Horse World: The way a Spanish Curly Stockhorse is identified and defined is simply by its Spanish pedigree. It must be identified with a verifiable pedigree, and/ or registered by an existing Spanish Studbook Registry. These unique curly horses will also be checked to see whether they are hypoallergenic to people allergic to straight haired horses.
