No one may ever unlock all the secrets of Hank’s breeding program.  The name Hank Wiescamp is one of the most recognized in the horse world.   Wiescamp is one of the all-time leading breeders of AQHA Champions and Register of Merit Qualifiers.  Hank built a huge breeding program with many stallions and his best mares who never left his ranch.   He is the only man ever inducted into three breed association Halls of Fame: American Quarter Horse Association; Appaloosa Horse Club; and Palomino Breeders of America.  Hank continually strived for excellence and what he believed was a perfect Quarter Horse.  He looked for crosses to provide all-around athleticism, beauty, straight legs, muscled, perfect conformation, small heads, muzzles, and ears, beautiful eyes, high color (“chrome”) and speed.

The “look” of Hank’s Skipper W lineage of horses became known as the “Wiescamp Look”.

Skipper W was not the most head-turning, gasp-out-loud stallion upon first glance.  He was chosen for the position of lead stallion by Hank due to the early death of his sire, Nick Shoemaker.  At the time, Hank had three of Hank Shoemakers’ sons to choose from to carry on his name.  Two were buckskins (“Nick W” and “Joker W”) which Hank did not want to put on his predominantly light colored mares.  He also felt they were too lightly muscled.  That left Skipper W who was a chestnut and Hank liked his muscled conformation, temperament and his dam’s pedigree.

Like most breeders making calculated guesses, with a lot of trial and error, Skipper W became most famous as a sire of both high producing sons and daughters, and in completely out-producing himself, one foal after another.  Most stallions either cannot produce quality at all, or produce only good sons or daughters, but not both.  Hank came to create one of the most enduring Quarter Horse bloodlines in history.  Skipper W lived his entire life on Hank’s Colorado ranch, and he was never bred to outside mares, thus diluting what Hank set out to achieve.  He was only shown a few times.  Despite this, the name Skipper W remains one of the most easily recognized Quarter Horses in the world.

Many folks don’t realize that a large percentage of the top reining, cutting and halter horses in the world descend in part from Skipper W.  That in itself speaks volumes for the enduring quality of this incredible line of horses.  Bloodlines come, and bloodlines go in popularity, but few are still as pure, undiluted, and effective in improving other lines, as the horses by Hank Wiescamp.
