2004 marks a highlight for Gunner. On May1, 2004 Gunner obtained his AQHA papers. Not only is he now a Quarter Horse, but his offspring will have the option of either being Quarter Horses or Paints.

The NRHA elected Gunner to the Hall of Fame! Gunner (APHA Colonelsmokingun) is an amazing equine individual. 2001 was a year that probably will never be matched in the NRHA.

More importantly, he never received a penalty during the runs.
In the same year, his get were the APHA Futurity champion, the APHA Junior World Champion, and money earners in almost every major NRHA futurity. Those combined facts made 2001 a very special year.
