Guest Post | RIP Surfer Dude

My friend, Madison, posted this post today, and I asked her if I could post it here. Madison has her own blog,Gyrfalcon Studio. I'd been trying to think of a way to write this, and Madison wrote it better!
A few days ago, fans of Chincoteague Ponies got word that one of the most popular stallions in the herd, Surfer Dude, had passed. It had been suspected for a while because he didn't come in during the Spring round up. This stallion has contributed so much to the breed.

To pay tribute to this beautiful guy there is a movement to get him immortalized as a Breyer Horse. Please email Breyer or use their contact form to help express interest in this idea. Collectors have wanted a new Chincoteague Pony for years and it would be amazing if it was Surfer Dude.
To check out more about this amazing breed look up I Love Chincoteague Ponies on Facebook.


  1. I just emailed Breyer. I would love to help! These ponies are my favorite and I've loved all the stories that have been written about them. I always thought it would be cool to own one or at least go to the roundups.

  2. Aw no! That's so sad!!! He was my favorite chinco stallion... He will be missed :(
