Fresno-owned stallion honored at Hall of Fame
Poco Tivio, a 1947 bay stallion, was inducted into the American Quarter Horse Hall of Fame at an awards ceremony March 10 in Houston.
The horse was bred by E. Paul Waggoner's Three D Stock Farm. The stallion was owned by Floyd Boss of Fresno.
As a stallion, Poco Tivio was known for passing on his low-key temperament and flashy working style.
Poco Tivio received the National Cutting Horse Association Certificate of Ability Bronze Award and is a member of the Working Cow Horse Hall of Fame.
