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.
 Crossing him on daughters of Willowlawn's Mr. Unique (HOF) has proven
to be everything we expected and more.
I would like to thank Dennis Robison/Grassmere
Farm, Paris, Kentucky
for breeding this exceptional LITTLE stallion!  "Mister" does not stand
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.  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.

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!  
We offer a limited
number of outside breedings to Grassmere's Lil' American Idol each year.  Email for details.
