NFQHA & The Peter Stone Horse Company
Announce Foundation Quarter Horses Model
Bower & Clark Quarter Horses’
"Lowry Star JR"
NFQHA is proud to announce that The Peter Stone
Horse Company has chosen an NFQHA certified horse as their model for the
Foundation Quarter Horse. “We are thrilled that Peter Stone contacted
NFQHA when his company decided they wanted to produce a Foundation
Quarter Horse model.” said NFQHA President Gail Zscheile.
After much thought and deliberation The Peter Stone Horse Company chose
Bower & Clark QHs’ Lowry Star JR.
Stone said his company wanted to produce a Foundation Quarter Horse
model because they wanted a model of the working ranch horse. “These
horses are the unsung heros. They are not going to shows with silver
bridles and saddles, they are using horses.” said Stone.
Peter also said that Lowry Star JR was chosen over several other horses
after a lot of deliberation. “We looked at a lot of Foundation Quarter
Horses. But we felt that the Lowry Star horses were authentic horses.
The Bower family make their living with their horses. They are not
investment horses.” he stated.
“Also there has not been a lot of focus on the roping horse in model
horses. The Lowry Star horses have a long history and reputation of
being really good rope horses.”
Jim and Dena Bower of Worland, WY own Lowry Star JR and are excited that
he was chosen. Lowry Star JR is by their outstanding sire Lowry Star and
out of Charm N Miss Kitty. The Bowers breed and raise rope horses who
suit everyone from a #1 USTRC team roper to a NFR cowboy.
Peter also said he was pleased that the Lowry Star horses are located in
Wyoming. “The horses in this part of the country are bred to be working
ranch horses. The terrain and weather are tough and so are these
Lowry Star JR will be sculpted in an action position that has never been
done before. The sculptor is Kitty Cantrell who has done many models for
the company. She has the photos and will be visiting the Bowers and
Lowry Star JR to see the horse in person.
“We have had an appendix-type Quarter Horse in our line for many years.
It was sculpted by Carol Williams of Kansas and it has served us
extremely well and been used in many replicas. We expect our Foundation
Quarter Horse model to be equally successful.”
Stone said they are hoping for a release date around the end of the
