Not that this is helpful, but my old magazines have photos of this horse and all remember is "Plastun trots on!" The slogan. I wish I could be more helpful. I am sure someone else will know more. Good Luck!!

*Plastun came into the showring at the East Coast Arabian Horse Championship show in Devon, PA back in '79 or '80 (can't remember exactly) and awed the crowd. He was a tall, irridescent chesnut with the most amazing, big trot! Because he was so different and could move like a locomotive, the crowd was mesmerized.
He was one of the better Russian bred horses but definitely different looking than what was being shown at that time. I believe Hugh Parker used to show him in park classes.
I've not paid attention to his offspring and how he stacked up as a sire.

Amanada, Plastun I think was owned by Carol Thompson of Salisbury, CT-- El Hamel Arabians---( if I am thinking the of the right one) A few years back ALL of the remaining horses at El Hamel where dispersed---- quite cheaply.
