If you have had your horse sired by Sir Plaudi then chances are that you are used to hearing your name in the winners circle. For many years the sign of the Lindsay's familiar brown and tan gooseneck trailer pulling onto the show grounds meant the horses to beat had arrived.
In their search for a new stallion, John and Arlene Lindsay needed the advice of friends and quarter horse breeders, Bill and Sharlis Irwin.  With trailer in tow, a sure-fire way of bringing home a horse, they headed to Hank Wiescamp's ranch in Alamosa, Colorado.  Like kids in a candy store, they looked through the pens of two years olds and discovered Sir Plaudi, a black Appaloosa with a white blanket and spots, a 1969 son of Sir Plaudit.  During a conversation, Hank Wiescamp told the Lindsays that when they go the horse home they could breed him to a fence post and that post would win!  And win they did, with a breeding career spanning 28 years.  Arlene says that every horse that went in the show ring won.  Before heading south John and Arlene had studied the Plaudit line and felt it was the best-known bloodlines in North America.  Sir Plaudi would be the only Appaloosa in Western Canada of Wiescamp blood and the only one in Canada that came directly from Hank Wiescamp.
The Lindsays received Sir Plaudi in May of 1971.  They fitted the colt and had him ready to show that season.  He started his winning ways as Champion Appaloosa Stallion at the Pacific National Exhibition.  The next year at Spanaway, Washington, he  entered a class of 20 three year old Stallions and was named Grand Champion.  He earned his Superior in Hlater, was year-end High Point Stallion in 1973, 1974, 1975 and had many wins in Western Pleasure.  He retired from the show arena in 1975 so that John and Arlene could concentrate on promoting his get.  Sir Plaudi was undefeated in Get of Sire classes in 1976 and 1977 in British Columbia and Washington.  He was a leading sire of Halter Futurity winners, high point award winners, superior halter and Canadian National Champions.
Sir Plaudi bred his last mare at 31 years of age.  He has sired 165 foals during his time.  His offspring have been recognized throughout Canada and the USA winning many top classes.  Many of the offspring have produced several reserve World Champions and Medallion winners as well.
The evening of November 28, 2000 the Lindsays did one final check of the barn, finding everything as it had been for the past 29 years.  The following morning he was gone, Sir Plaudi passed away. Though his stall may be empty now, the offspring he left behind are the testament of a true sire.
