Bred by William & Thomas Noble, UK.
Sonny Boy, an untouched three year old when he arrived at Roundthwaite had a pretty pony head, exceptional feet, legs, bone, joints and feather, and was as wild as the proverbial hawk. If he had a fault it was in the top line of his neck and in his temper which was none too sweet in those early days. It was a couple of months before he was tame enough to commence breaking in; his main aim during this period being to trap you in the comer of the stable and kick you to pieces. On more than one occasion I had to leap into the manger to escape has flailing hooves.
