JAY DEE was my friend and companion for eighteen of his nineteen years. He came to PANDEMONIUM at ten months of age, generating high hopes, to be the first stallion. I was just out of college, and he was a bum looking for someone to clown around with.

He ate my liver sausage and lettuce sandwich halves that stuck out of my mouth as I was using both hands to adjust some piece of equipment. He drank my milk right from the carton sitting on the trailer wheel at the outdoor shows. Radishes. Hot dogs. Once at the International Championship Pinto Show, when I was for once striving for a modicum of decorum, his former owner, Jane Pfister, Pinto Point, NJ, fed him half of her hamburger as I was showing him to visitors. In Minnesota, in his first performance class, he took a bite out of an ice cream sandwich a man had negligently dangled into the arena.

JAY DEE's show career resulted in many state and national titles. He showed in a wide variety of events simultaneously. JAY DEE was the High Point Pinto Stallion in the nation in Dressage his first year under saddle. He won ROM's in both Parade Horse and English Pleasure.

He was shown to Reserve High Point Pinto awards here in Iowa in five events: halter, English Pleasure, Parade Horse, Show Horse, and 880 Stock Saddle Competition (racing), even though a mid-season trailer wreck sidelined him. He went to one more show, finishing his PtHA Championship with a Grand Champion Stallion at halter, a win in a large hunt seat English Pleasure class, and a High Point Pleasure Type Horse of the show for both days, under two different judges. If I had told him to jump over the moon, he would have turned his limpid brown eyes on me trustingly and said, "Show me which path!"

Over the years, his get have earned numerous PtHA Championships, futurity class wins, and high point state awards.

PANDEMONIUM ANGEL, a JAY DEE granddaughter, finished her PtHA Legion of Merit in 1987. ANGEL was purchased by Faye Robar, ANGEL ACRES, then living in New Hampshire, at age four months, and was owned by her during her show career, but returned to PANDEMONIUM upon Faye's death from cancer.

JAY DEE sired better than 80% Pintos, in later years, mainly out of solid colored purebred Arabian mares. His foals have consistently had gorgeous dispositions, generally taking readily to training on foal after foal after foal.

JAY DEE was humanely destroyed several weeks after a crippling heart attack, when the damage was pronounced irreversible at the Iowa State Veterinary Clinic in Ames, in September of 1986, but he's left a solid legacy of Pinto mares to continue to brighten my life.

He's sorely missed.


Miss M'Lu and Jay Dee


While the JAY DEE daughters that used to grace the broodmare band: PANDEMONIUM DE NADA, the GAI CAROUSEL daughters PANDEMON CANTA LIBRE and PANDEMONIUM CARIÑOSA, PANDEMONIUM FANTASIA, and PANDEMONIUM PUNCTUATION are all gone, their influence lives on via two daughters, PANDEMONIUM ADAGIO and PANDEMONIUM FORGET ME NOT.

His winning son PANDEMONIUM DESTINY also made a significant contribution to the breeding program in its heyday. His daughter HAAP LOUISE is now the oldest broodmare in the band.
