Merry Weedo's first foal set the standard for his brothers who would follow him in the show ring. Kingweeds Houdini, a 1989 blue roan, was sired by Alias King. While being shown first by Kara Baker, then by Tricia Mohana, titles won include:

National Champion - Senior Western Riding
Seven Youth National Champion titles in Western Riding, Western Equitation, Hunt Seat Equitation, & Hunter Under Saddle.
Five Non-Pro World/National Championships in Western Riding, Showmanship, Western Equitation, and Hunt Seat Equitation.

A 1994 buckskin son of Merry Weedo, DZ Weedo, was sired by Dandy Zippo. In the story of "like begets like," Odie (as he was called while owned by Patty Baker (1995-1998), has already proven himself as a champion in Western Pleasure/Riding and Trail classes. Owned by Doug and Sue Schembri since late 1998, watch for "Odie" to pass on the winning ways of his bloodlines as he stands at stud at their Char-O-Lot Ranch in Myakka City, Florida.

Some of Odie's accomplishments:
World Champion - Western Riding and Non-Pro Bareback
National Champion - Western Pleasure and Trail

Then along comes Merry Weedo's 1996 son, Ditto Weedo, another son of Dandy Zippo. After a reserve world championship in Non-Pro Yearling Longe-Line, he was 1999's World Champion in 3-year-old Western Pleasure for Pam and Amy Wollowick. Prior to the 1999 World show, his breeder and previous owner, Victoria Ennis, commented about how much he looked like his dam and went on to describe him as "the next superstar out of the mare (Merry Weedo)."

Ditto did it:
Reserve World Champion - Non-Pro Yearling Longe-Line
World Champion - Western Pleasure
