With the rich history of Royal Pony Farm it is only fitting that some Royal ponies have gone on to have very interesting lives. Two such ponies are “Boomer” and “Schooner”. When the “Sooner Schooner” was in need of a pair of white ponies to pull it Royal Pony Farm was happy to provide. The photos below are of Boomer and Schooner both before and after they resided at Royal Pony Farm.

When a well known university in Oklahoma needed white colts to pull its prairie schooner Howard was happy to help out. The photo above and at right are of Howard with his white boys who later became known as Boomer and Schooner.

Below right they are shown pulling the Sooner Schooner at half time.

Included on this page will be a few more historic photos from the Royal Pony Farm collection. We hope you enjoy them!schooner

Karma Leland passed away in late April 2004 and will be greatly missed by the Royal Pony Farm family. She was a wonderful friend to Arris and always a veryFabFour supportive wife to Bob.

The photo at right was taken at a pony show with the orginal Royal Pony Farm sign which now hangs in Donna’s house. Clockwise from left to right: Bob Leland, Howard Richardson, Arris Richardson and Karma Leland. An 8×10 of this photo was on display at Karma’s funeral service.
