I spent three years searching for just the right "under" stallion to replace Roadrunner
Cody's Copy.  I knew exactly what I wanted and would not compromise on quality, color, or
size.  Mister filled every requirement and more!  His get and grandget have been making
their mark on both the Classic and Modern divisions for years racking up win after win in
halter and driving.  I would like to thank Dennis Robison for breeding this exceptional
LITTLE stallion!  "Mister" will not be standing to the public.

"I really like that pony" - I said that every time I saw him show.  I never in my wildest
dreams ever imagined I would someday own him!  From the first foal that hit the ground
we knew we had something special on our hands.  Crossing Unique on Royal Red Viking
daughters has been hugely successful as has crossing him on Red Rock mares.  His first
foal crop produced Plattes Undeniably Royal who was named ASPC Shetland Congress
Modern Country Pleasure Driving Stake Champion "Under" in 2011.  His second foal crop
produced Plattes Unparalleled (HOF) and the multiple time All Star Champion mare Plattes
Unrepenting.  We offer a limited number of outside breedings to Willowlawn's Mr. Unique
(HOF) each year. Email for details.

There is no greater pleasure as a breeder than seeing your hard work and planning pay off
in the show ring.  Plattes Unparalleled has met and surpassed all expectations - a Congress
Champion as a yearling and Modern Halter Hall of Fame as a two-year-old.  We haven't
decided just what the future holds for Perry yet but whatever he does we know he'll do it with
his usual zest and flair!  Perry is, in my opinion, the best son Willowlawn's Mr. Unique (HOF)
has sired to date.  
Congratulations to Kristen on her purchase of Perry!  We can't wait
to see him in the show ring again!
Plattes Unparalleled's show accomplishments include:

I had no intention of adding another stallion to the herd, but sometimes when opportunity
knocks you have to listen.  Grassmere's Mr. Sho-Dee-Oh Kid's 2007 foal crop was
exceptional, but I truly believe the old boy saved the very best for last and Idol was the very
last.  Watch for him in the show ring in the future, he has some big hoofprints to fill being
from the 2007 foal crop but I believe he'll do it and do it with style!
