Our Foundation Stallion — Hi Voltage +/

3/4/75 - 9/11/05

Like many little girls, Patience was "horse crazy" at a very early age. After owning several horses and taking many lessons, she and her mother, Kay, found the "perfect horse" for her—a half Arabian mare, Angelia, sired by Aurab. Angelia was a "typey" mare and Patience and "Annie" were a good pair. Showing at the Carmel Valley Trail & Saddle Club and doing well there, they moved on to the Arabian horse show circuit, winning there as well. Finally in 1972, they entered the U.S. Nationals in Oklahoma City. There were no Youth or Amateur classes at that time. Patience and Annie were Top Twenty in Halter and English Pleasure and won the National Championship in Native Costume.

On their return trip home, tragedy struck. With rain in the morning, the temperature started dropping and by afternoon, there was "black ice" on the highways. Somewhere in Kansas, the truck skidded and the trailer flipped over, popping the roof open. Somehow, Annie managed to jump out of the trailer and slashed her neck on the sharp edge of the trailer. She ran down the highway where she was struck and killed by an oncoming car.

To help Patience get over the loss of her precious Annie, her mother thought Patience should have another horse. She leased a mare to breed to Aurab—Annie's sire. The prospect of having a new foal of her very own was very healing and exciting.

After many months of anticipation for the big event, the foal was finally due. Patience and her mother slept in the stall and were on hand to see the foal, a colt, being born. What a beauty he was, with markings that Patience had hoped for. At the tender age of three days, the mare and baby were put out to pasture which was surrounded by a hot wire. The baby was curious and checked everything along the way, especially that "hot" wire. He ran through the hot wire, not once but three times; hence his name Hi Voltage.

During his life as a show horse, Hi Voltage+/ won many, many Regional championships as well as numerous National Top Ten championships. He sired many champions—both Regional and National. Hi Voltage+/ was a favorite in many parades as a Side Saddle horse. He participated a number of times in the New Year's Day Rose Parade in Pasadena as Patience's Side Saddle mount.

Hi Voltage+/ had limited breedings before Patience and Chris purchased their Glynnsong Farms because he was often "farmed out" for breedings.
