In 1980 Bob Erwin bought his wife Sandy a Christmas present; now that's not unusual, but the present was. Sandy's present was an 8 month old miniature horse named Egyptian King. Initially Egyptian King lived in the Erwin's backyard in Dallas where Bob operates a successful insurance business. Bob and Sandy became more interested in miniature horses, and they decided to make their miniature horse hobby into a business with the same goals as other large successful big horse breeds, simply to produce superior quality horses.
Now, through acquiring the best breeding foundation stock available, an organized professional breeding program designed to improve the breed, a facility to enable professional breeding, training and showing, and most importantly securing the best available personnel, the Erwins are beginning to realize their goals.
proof of the pudding is in the eating. When the smoke had cleared at
the 1986 National Championships, NFC had won 6 out of 8 of them, and
most interesting, Sandy's little 8-month-old stallion Christmas Gift,
now an 11 year old, was the National Grand Champion Stallion.
