3 years as Leading Sire, Zips Chocolate Chip

     Zips Chocolate Chip has not only filled the pleasure industry with pretty, good- minded and winning "Chips," but also owners and breeders' pockets as well, this time, with money! The 13-year-old stallion by Zippo Pine Bar and out of Fancy Blue Chip by Custus Jaguar, had 54 offspring earn $173,644.60 in 1997 prize money. That is $56,207.60 more than last year's total. He also is the leading sire of 2-, 3-year-olds and the second leading English sire.
     One Red Hot Zip is Chip's leading offspring, with earnings of $25,737.96. The 3-year-old sorrel gelding, owned by Misty Lane Hayre, Sheffield, Texas, is out of Tinkys Windy Star by Mighty Tink. The second winningest Chip offspring is Chipped In Chocolate, with earnings of $21,613.73. The 3-year-old brown stallion, out of Belle O Boston by Boston Mac, is owned by Richard Sokolwski, Ashland, Ohio, and was shown by Bret Parrish, Pavo, Ga.
     Chip's enthusiastic owner, Ann Myers, is usually seen "Chippin Around," as she calls it, at horse shows. "Chippin Around" includes handing out homemade cookies to owners of Chip's offspring and anyone else lucky enough to get ahold of one of her delicious cookies, at the major events.
     Myers raised Chip, as she owns his dam, Fancy Blue Chip.
     " To think about owning him is just overwhelming, " Myers said. "When I think about how famous he is, it just blows my mind. We have really been lucky."
     "It is a little like winning the lottery, to have everything fall into place like it has for Chip is very fortunate".
     Chip has stood at the Perry's since he was 3-years-old, in 1988
     "It really worked out to be such a great place for him to be, "Myers said. "it gave Chip a real boost in the beginning and this is another reason why he is the leading sire early in his life because of his fortunate beginnings". Myers said the late Zippo Pine Bar and Chip were very compatible.
      "Chip and Zippo were so cool," Myers said. "in fact, we would sometimes get to the point that they got too ho-hum about the photo sessions. We would, finally, have to get a mare in heat and walk her up and down to get them to put their ears up."
     Myers said they have even taken pictures with Zippo, Chip and Chip's dam, Fancy Blue Chip, all standing side-by-side.

     "They are both really good-minded horses and I know that is why their offspring have been so successful," Myers said. "Ann Perry and I have talked a lot about that; not every offspring is going to be world champion quality, but if they are mentally good to be around, people can get a lot accomplished."
     Ann said it is funny because she has the best horses she has ever had in her life, and she hasn't ridden in ages.
     "I have the best horses that I ever had in my whole life and, now, I don't show anymore," she said.
     Zippos Mr. Goodbar is the second leading sire with 43 offspring earning $111,838.36. The 13 year-old red roan stallion is by Zippo Pine Bar and out of Tamara Wes. The Saul family recently sold their share to John Narmount. The stallion stands at Richland Ranch, Auburn, Ill.
     Ima Due Goodbar Too was Zippos Mr. Goodbar's leading money-earner, with $31,799.30 in prize money. A Good Luv, owned by the Strumpf family, was the second leading money-earner, winning $9,669.12.
     The legendary Zippo Pine Bar continues to remain at the top of the charts. The stallion by Zippo Pat Bars out of Dollie Pine, ranks third behind his two sons, with 41 offspring earning $85,960.64
