Endowed with championship breeding, Yellow Mount’s (registration number 3,300) contribution to the breed is second to none. Owned by Stanley and Jodie Williamson of Iowa Park, Texas, the big red dun overo stallion has contributed a total of 102,963 descendants to APHA’s registry, accounting for 10.1% of the total. The image of his head has become the face of APHA and is used on all logos.

  1. About time “Yellow Mount” receives the notoriety deserved.
    I own a grandson of “Yellow Mount” on his maternal side and a grandson of the APHA Ch. “Bachelors Dancer” on the sires side

  2. I own a grandson of “Yellow Mount”, I have owned many stallions and “Watta Rocki Mount” is the best I think I have ever had the pleasure to breed/own.
    He throws exceptional foals with “Lots” of color, conformation and willingness to please!
    Great bloodline!
