What's Wanted was bred by Mr. J. Ashmore of Darlton, Nottinghamshire, in 1873.

He was a bay horse 17 hands high, with two white hind-legs and a broad blaze down the face. At two years old he came into the hands of Mr. James Forshaw, Carlton-on-Trent, Newark, in whose stud he continued to the time of his death in 1882. He had for his sire Bold Lincoln, 231, and his dam Diamond was by Oxford, 1683.

At three years old he had sired that good mare Sunshine (Shaw's), and each succeeding year his stock occupied a more conspicuous and prominent position in the prize-ring.

Premier, 2646, his most distinguished son, not only took high honours at the best horse exhibitions in the country, but he proved himself one of the most successful sires of his day, following closely in the wake of his stable companion Harold.

Besides Premier, What's Wanted sired a large number of noted horses, and established a strain, the blood of which is to be found in most of our best shire stock.

Among his best sons may be mentioned Bold Lincoln, 2536; Northern King, 2635; Silent James, 2668; Eclipse, 2571; Old Times, 2861; Union Jack, 2684; Benefactor, 2394; Trade Mark, 2940; Blyth Echo, 2991; Duke of Lancaster, 2566; Candidate 2405; and Royal Stamp 3296.

He had more good daughters than sons, and of the best were Princess Alice, Reciprocity, Brock, Shire Queen, Sunshine, Flower Girl, Maggie (Foxwell's), Lassie, Lady Whiteloek, Shire Maggie, etc. etc.

He died when only nine years old, and at a time when still greater success might have been expected from his services at the stud.
