Windermere King Cong Blackhome Duke X Camille D.O.B. 2/3/93
King Cong followed closely in the steps of his sire and dam. He continued their legacy of winning championships all throughout North America. A Royal Winter Fair Champion as well as a National Champion and two time All-American, Cong was one of the premier show horses of the '90's. Cong's show career can only be bested by his highly successful career as a sire during which he sired many champion offspring and Get of Sire groups. His Gets continue to win even after his death and his offspring command a dominating presence in the show ring even today. He has sired two National Champion mares, a World Champion mare, World Champion gelding, a World Champion Get of Sire, Several National Champion Gets, numerous All Americans and is the grand-sire to the current Supreme World Champion Percheron. This abbreviated list of his offspring's accomplishments sheds at least some light on why Cong was able to become the Premier Percheron Sire for two different years.
Cong's strength will be remembered by his ability to produce quality mares with tremendous knee and hock action. His daughters continue to be some of the most powerful broodmares in the breed. Cong was a horse unequaled in balance. His powerful shoulder and long flat hip are largely why he was such an extreme moving horse. Cong consistently threw flat bone with clean, tight hocks and a smooth curb. His heel was among the widest you will find and he carried his front end with the best. At the height of his breeding career Cong serviced 225 mares. The full extent of his contribution to the breed may very well still be unknown but one thing is for sure, Windermere King Cong will go down as a renowned sire who had the ability to accelerate breeding programs across the continent.
