The centerpiece of Leroy and Nora’s professional life at their Monte Vista ranch was developing their quarter horse breeding program and performing in the quarter horse show circuit. Leroy had developed the necessary skills and knowledge during his tutelage under Wiescamp, knew the prerequisite importance of the right bloodlines, and became immediately successful. Pawnee Eagle was his first stallion, and he was a great one.
. . . Leroy stated that “I have had the pleasure of riding some exceptionally great horses, but the most outstanding was Pawnee Eagle. His character, size, and ability left nothing to be desired. As a sire, he passed on all these characteristics to his offspring.”
