When her son Jess Hankins was registered, his dam was listed as Spider, by Headlight Morgan x Big Sorrel by Wheat`s Tony. Later when she was registered herself, her name was given as Spider H., and sire as Darity. No Darity can be found in any studbook, QH or TB. Most historians believe the original sire is correct, and by the time the mare was registered, they were trying to distance themselves from the Morgans that were used in the early days of the breed.
Two T Ranch owned Rocksprings horses in the earlier days and they had Spider H by headlight Morgan on the certificates. AQHA has now removed Headlight Morgan from their certificates. Steel Dust Horse Assoc still recognizes Headlight Morgan to maintain accuracy.
