It must have been in about 1984 that I saw Dreamazon at the Scottsdale, Arizona, show in February; I am no longer actually sure of the year. I know that I was visiting my sister in Scottsdale, went to the show by myself for a few hours - and quite by accident came across Dreamazon being ridden around the grounds. I followed him back to his stall and saw him unsaddled. He is the only horse I remember from that show - maybe because after I “found” him I was no longer looking much at other horses during my short time at the show. Dreamazon made that show for me.
Dreamazon was an exquisitely beautiful stallion of exceptionally strong classic Arabian type. He had a gorgeous head and other very desirable features, including good legs. He was not perfect, and he was small, but his positive assets totally overwhelmed any flaws. The overall impression he created was unforgettable and more than positive.
Dreamazon strongly showed his close-bred Skowronek heritage (see pedigree); one knew immediately upon seeing him what his pedigree must be - and this proved the case. He is closely bred to Skowronek via *Raseyn (by Skowronek) and his son Ferseyn, via *Raffles (by Skowronek), and with one line to Naseem (by Skowronek); the latter was via *Naborr 25472.
Dreamazon’s pedigree is of further interest became he was of the relatively rare *Nejdme 1 dam line. *Nejdme, an 1887 gray desert bred mare, was imported to the United States by the Hamidie Society in 1893 for what was commonly called the Chicago World’s Fair. She became the first Arabian registered with the American Arabian registry when it was founded in 1908.
Upon seeing Dreamazon, I knew immediately that my friend Janice Siders had to use him in her breeding program. If she took the right kind of mare to him, he could perhaps do for her something similar to part of what *Raseyn had done for the old Kellogg Ranch, what *Raffles had done for the Selby program, and what Skowronek had done for Crabbet. Janice bred exactly the right mare to Dreamazon and the result, her beautiful mare Dream of Liberty, was everything, then some, of what was foreseen and wanted - and, incidentally, Dream of Liberty matured taller than either of her parents.
Dreamazon was owned from his birth by Margaret Haverstock of Murrieta, California. In November of 1985, when Dreamazon was 8, Mrs. Haverstock sold him to Bazy Tankersley, of Al-Marah Arabians in Tucson, Arizona.
Dreamazon had a long and very full show career that spanned the years 1979 to 1995. He was a frequent winner and champion. He was shown in most classic head classes, in western pleasure, and in sidesaddle. His heavy show schedule got him out in front of many people and he attained a large following
