2021 Solid APHA Registered Dark Bay Filly
Angie produced another really good one – perhaps her best yet. After blowing off my attempts to move them to another pasture the first day, she was very happy that I had learned my lesson and just delivered breakfast pellets without expectations as she feels I should. At least I got some pictures.
This filly will make someone a really nice, easy to get along with barrel prospect. If you want one you can do everything on – she’s the one you want. And it would be best if someone would snap this filly up quickly because it is really tempting to keep her! She’s feminine and floats over the ground even at a day old. Look at that nice, sloping shoulder – those are hard to find in horses with a little cowhorse breeding like she has.
Her dam is a daughter of the great barrel sire Raise Your Rocket – a fast, quick-footed stallion who sired 1D and futurity horses. She is fast and athletic herself as well as being good to get along with. Despite her cowhorse bottom side, I’ve seen her outrun racehorse mares at short distances. She has just been a broodmare for us but we did have her started and the trainer really liked her.
This filly’s tail female line goes directly to two horses who were foundations of Merle and Rose Marie’s program and instrumental in their early success as breeders. Her third dam, Reeds Little Queen, was a daughter of Rose Marie’s great stallion, Reed Silvertip. He was the last grandson of Joe Reed P-3 and a very successful local sire. Her dam was Merle’s great little mare, Chief’s Queen Bee. In addition to many other successful horses, Queen Bee’s first foal was Kristin’s Appaloosa gelding, Apache Joe A. He was a World Champion team roping horse, a 7 time Canadian National Champion and 4 time Reserve Canadian National Champion in a variety of timed and cattle events including barrels, poles, and team penning. His versatility was amazing, but this was back in the days when that was still possible. He was a state and regional year end high point performance horse and high point youth horse more times than we could count. He won at everything from western pleasure to jumping to reining to all the timed events. He was also an amazing ranch horse and he worked all week. He had just 30 days breaking by a professional and another 2 weeks tune up a year later. After that, a pre-teen Kristin rode him and Merle roped on him. He was just a natural at pretty much anything you asked him to do.
As exceptional as the foundation of this pedigree is, each generation since has added more speed, turn and competitive ability. If you are looking for a cow-run cross barrel racing prospect this filly is a great prospect.
If you want to read more about this family of horses, Merle’s autobiography features them prominently.
If you can ride a really good one – you’ll enjoy this filly!
