Gold Melody Boy was born in 1962 at William Dalton’s farm. His parents are Lightning Bug and Ginns Melody and his pedigree can be traced back to the 19th century. Lloyd Johnston purchased Gold Melody Boy for his breeding program in 1972.
It is the Johnston breeding program that finally made Gold Melody Boy as famous as he deserves to be: Johnstons Vanilla, a palomino Gold Melody Boy daughter, is the dam to the legendary Boones Little Buckeroo - a multiple National Grand Champion and National Grand Champion sire.
Today, the Gold Melody Boy bloodline is as sought-after as it could be. The Gold Melody Boy sons have done phenomenally well siring show horses, such as AMHA National Grand Champion Stallion Skip A Star, Reserve National Grand Champion Stallion Johnstons Starlight Ranger, National Grand Champion Junior Stallion NFCs Sugar Boy, National Champion Sterling Silver, and numerous other National Champions and National Top Ten winners.
Gold Melody Boy offspring have a certain "look" that shows tremendous type, elegance and balance. This bloodline has passed these qualities on for generations and will certainly continue to do so.
Gold Melody Boy was owned and loved by the Daltons, the Johnstons, and the Wagners of Flying W Farms, where he died at the age of 21 in 1983.
