    greys

    The Bumblefoot grey was originated by Curtis Blackwell of Jasper Alabama. I knew Curtis all of my life and I know for a fact that the Bumblefoots were originated as follows. Curtis acquired a Law grey from his partner and friend Harold Brown of Red Fox Farms who had gotten it directly from Law himself. The grey got stepped on by an old plow mule Curtis had while still on the yard as a really young stag. It left him bumblefooted. He took that stag and put it over his own Blackwell Clarets and Blackwell Hatch( 1/2 and 1/2's)(mclean he and harold obtained from the man himself) and the clarets were madigan direct as well. I have seen many variants of Bumblefoots out there. I have seen the blood claimed by many but actually owned by very few. I have seen many many supposed Bumblefoots online that have black blood in them Curtis NEVER owned black blood on his life.

    Warrior_River, great story & info, you sound like the person to ask, who has good clarets, & if I wanted a bumblefoot grey,who to purchase from? (It almost sounds as if I purchase a regular grey, mcclean, & claret from Red Fox I might be closeto repeating history) Jim
