KOMOKOS SALE Joel Bridges owner of Komoko Ranch poses with two eight year old broodmares. In an excerpt from the July 1981 Miniature Horse World Magazine, Volume 1, Number 3 reported the highlights of a sale held by Joel and Alma Bridges of Komoko Ranch in Newberry, FL. The statistics quoted in this article are somewhat astounding even by today’s standards. “The Bridges sold 304 miniature horses for $473,430.00 at an average price of $1557.34 each. Komokos Little Hustler, a 26.5 inch stallion, topped the sale at $13,500. Some three thousand people attended, sixteen hundred registered as buyers. Almost half the buyers were first time Miniature owners. The Komoko Miniature sale’s success was attributed to a no-minimum, no-reserve, no-purchase by ranch employees commitment. Joel and Alma Bridges are to be commended for their commitment and for their continued leadership in promoting the Miniature horse.” Boones Little Buckeroo 2nd graced the cover of the April/May issue of Miniature Horse World in 1994. JUNE/JULY 2013 Miniature Horse World 55 The beautiful stallion, Ohios Bay Lady Cocoa Butter was also known and shown as Flying W Farms Little Cocoa Butter. Many horses transferred into AMHA from IMHR and the registry with previous show records. Their names were sometimes changed or altered and created much confusion for the office staff of that time.
