Breeder: Walter Merrick
Foaled March 1, 1969 (OK)
At the time of his death, Fairy Adams was thought to be in foal to Three Bars,
was nursing one of his colts, and her yearling filly by Three Bars was not far away.
She was also one of the last mares bred to him before he died. Like many noted stallions,
Three Bars had his attachments too. One was a mare named Fairy Adams. If it
can be possible for a stallion to be in love, Three Bars had this feeling for
this mare, by all accounts.
Sid Vail first brought the mare from Jay Frost in 1962. She was blind, he recalled,
and was kept in a paddock next to Three Bars in California.
They became very attached to one another. Three Bars would get excited and upset(CLOSE)
when she wasn't in the paddock. They just sort of fell for one another. So when
Walter came to take Three Bars to Texas I just gave him the mare...I had never seen
Three Bars lie down in all the time I had him. But after Walter put Fairy Adams
in the stall next to Three Bars, he'd lie down and rest...she was good for him.
