Here are our broodmares pedigrees. For now I don't have much for great photos but will add them as I get them. These mares have been producing some outstanding foals for us and we hope they continue to do so. We have raised a good share of them and purchased some to add other great genetics. We only breed our mares if their colts are of great disposition and are worthy of producing us some top of the line prospects. It gives us a sense of pride knowing that the colts we put on the ground or sell as a prospect or broke horse are something we would want to keep for ourselves. Thank you for taking the time to look these over.

We purchased "Jackie" as a weanling at a local sale. Her pedigree interested us and when we seen her we decided we had to have her. She is a very neat red dun color and has been a 100% color producer. Her 2017 foal will be her third and we always look forward to see what wild color she will throw. As you can see she has Peptoboonsmal on her papers as well as Hes A Peptospoonful. When Hes A Peptospoonful died in 2012 his offspring earnings exceeded $3.4M. In 2011 he was in the NCHA Top 10 Leading Sires and NRCHA All-Time Leading Sires. He was a great athlete producing over $72k NCHA earnings. He was named 2006 NCHA Freshman Sire of the Year. Not only that but Peptoboonsmal has a long list of achievements as well. On the bottom side "Jackie" has a little running blood going back to Jet Deck and Moon Deck. She also has some foundation going back to King, Jackie Bee and Poco Bueno. The bottom side of her pedigree is very dynamic and we have been excited to see what she gives us every year. She is a very sweet mare as one day a neighboring colt slipped under the fence into the pen with her and when the colt was hungry it just buddied up with her foal and she fed them both! Not very often do you have one like that. Be watching for her 2018 foal by Dmac Salty Spoon. The full sister to the foal listed on our sale page sold this fall for $1300. What an phenomenal producer!
We purchased "Fireball" right out of the Bob and Karen Meyer program. We are very pleased with the Young Gun stallion they had in past years. They recently sold him which made us value our daughters even more! Young Gun was the 1975 NCHA Futurity winner and had LTE $34,750. He also reigned Champion at the 1992 Bonanza 4 Year Old Open. Being the athlete he was he managed to sire 210 money earners which won close to $3 million! He also passed down his ability being known as a leading maternal grandsire. In 2006, he was listed 23rd by Equi-Stat for maternal grandsires with grandbabies earning over $250k. On the bottom side of "Fireball's" papers we really appreciate the Drop of Frost line. A great line going back to Doc Bar and Sugar Bars as well. "Fireball" had a phenomenal foal for us this spring that we plan to keep and breed. Her disposition and build are simply what we look for in breeding prospects. Be watching for her 2018 foal by Boon To Cat. We expect another excellent foal.
As mentioned above we LOVE these Young Rio Gunner foals. Their disposition is just second to none and with 4 kids at home that means something to us. Not only that but when looking to sell foals later on who doesn't want one that is kind and has the build we all look for. Young Gun was a phenomenal horse and passed that down through his offspring. On the bottom side of "Tawney's papers you can see she isn't lacking pedigree there either! Grey's Startlight is just as well known for his abilities and offspring. His LTE +$35k in the NCHA and also was a stallion who passed his ability to his offspring. He surpassed the Million Dollar Sire Mark in both Reining and Cutting, with total offspring earnings over $10 million. This will be "Tawney's" first foal and we can't wait. She has a solid build and is expecting a 2018 sired by DMAC Salty Spoon. This cross will produce a strong solid performer for sure!
"Mouse" is a 7/8 sister to "Fireball". Remember I said we had a real love for these colts, well we breed several of them! We just can't get enough of their disposition or just how great of foals they are giving us! Young Gun and Doc Bar really need no introduction but if you want some statistics check out Gunners Frosty Girls notes. They are nearly full sisters! "Mouse" is special to us due to the oddness of her color. She is a black/grey rabicano which is very intriguing. Be watching for her 2018 foal by Boon To Cat.
