Watonga’s Lacy Britches is a heritage Appaloosa with valuable bloodlines of ApHC Hall Of Fame Appaloosas and World Champion Performance and Racing Appaloosas.

born daughter of WATONGA JIM (Imp USA): High Point Performance horse, National
Grand Champion Stallion, National Champion Get Of Sire, and multiple Halter and
Performance Champion; and grand daughter of the Race and Performance bred
Champion ENR's SUNDAY WHISTLE (Imp USA).
Watonga Jim (Imp)
ENR's Sunday Whistle (Imp)
Watonga Jim (Imp) and ENR's Sunday Whistle (Imp)
were imported to Australia in 1974 by Gary Itzstein; stallions with performance
credentials ahead of their time - Watonga Jim's sire became a renowned producer
of halter and all round performance champions, and ENR's Sunday Whistle's
forebears were later (1988 and 2012) inducted into the ApHC Hall Of Fame.
Sunday Whistle (Imp) has a remarkable performance Appaloosa pedigree, his lineage is a who's who of prolific foundation
Appaloosas and Champions:
Mansfield Comanche ApHC Hall Of Fame
Double Six Domino ApHC Hall Of Fame
Hands Up ApHC Hall Of Fame

Nava-Patrice Multiple Grand Champion Show mare
Watonga Jim (Imp) and ENR's Sunday Whistle (Imp) were versatile Appaloosa stallions, champions in halter and performance, and excelled in English and Western equitation. Both stallions sired families of champion Appaloosas that competed successfully during the apex of Appaloosa exhibition, and contributed to the identity and performance regard of the Appaloosa in Australia.
Unfortunately due to the passage of time, lost registrations and adverse circumstance, most of Watonga Jim (Imp) and ENR's Sunday Whistle (Imp) descendants have passed on and/or are lost from the Studbook. Through Watonga's Lacy Britches, JIms Donna Karina and Jims Riverdance, I hope to carry on the versatile halter and performance lineage of Watonga Jim (Imp) & ENR's Sunday Whistle (Imp).
