The forerunner of a bloodline of pure Nez Perce Horses.
Lamb owned Knobby (foaled in 1918) and Hickman decided to breed his exceptionally good mare, Spot, to that salty ol' blue roan.
From this alliance came a colored colt that would live to be an excellent foundation sire. Hickman called him Dan, or Little Dan, or Dan Patch. He was no relation, of course, to the famous harness horse. His name simply described his hip pattern of white.https://ashillappaloosas.webs.com/historyofourbloodline.htm
