Our Mares

Rugged Ashley (Ashley)

A bit of a departure for us from the regular cow horse/foundation type mares, Ashley is sired by 2x AQHA World Show Superhorse, Rugged Lark.  Given the fact that speed equals athleticism at it's core level, our idea is to hope to take the positive traits of this 3/4 TB mare and move forward with them in progeny sired by our foundation stallions.  Ashley has a great mind, beautiful movement, and a very graceful, clean, classic front end & movement.   

Ashley had a fantastic, classy, stylish filly by Blue in 2016.  The filly is not for sale, as she'll be retained to be part of our breeding program in the future.  You can check her out under the "Young Horses" section of this website.  

Her 2017 colt is a tremendous, star-of-the-show type colt, with a dun base and a gray modifier, this colt sold very young to Daniel Patton in Ohio, USA.  Congratulations Daniel!    

For 2018, Ashley is bred to Polly Had A Cracker!

Performance Record for Rugged Lark:  AQHA World Show Superhorse in 1985 and in 1987. Also an AQHA Superior Western Pleasure Horse, Superior Hunter Under Saddle Horse, and Superior Trail Horse. In 1987 he was the World Champion Senior Hunter Under Saddle Horse. In 1985 he was the World Champion Pleasure Driving Horse.  Earned AQHA points in Hunter Under Saddle, Western Pleasure, Trail, Hunter Hack, Reining, Working Hunter, Western Riding, Pleasure Driving, and Barrel Racing.


Goldun Bueno Bobbie (Bobbie)

Bobbie is a direct daughter of our very own Jaz Poco Goldun Blue, a proven reining horse & the most recognized grulla horse in the world! Bobbie fits our program in every way.  She has great conformation like the original Quarter Horse, and has the fantastic disposition to go along with it.  She is homozygous for black.  Thanks to Ron & Dory Yelick, for allowing us to own this mare. They called Bobbie the "pinnacle of their lifetime breeding program".

In the interest of full-disclosure, this mare is a GBED carrier.  It is a recessive disease, so this means that she carries it but it will never manifest; it will never affect her in any way.  If she passes it on to a foal, it would be the same for it.  For us, our decision not to eliminate her from the brood mare band was easy, because she's a great mare and a problem only really ever comes in on a filly that's a carrier; it would have to be carefully bred so as to never take the risk of a double GBED foal.  Otherwise, a clean foal is great or a carrier colt is easy, as he can be cut.     

Bobbie had a great dun-factored, homozygous black colt by Roosters Wrangler in 2013, who went on to a ranch near Edmonton, AB where he will become a using ranch horse, a rope horse, and perhaps a herd sire.  

Bobbie's 2015 stunning black colt by Simply A Spark sold in utero to Alberta folks who will use him in Cowboy Mounted Shooting.  Congratulatons, Blair & Myrna Anderson!    

Her 2017 grulla colt by Dun It Ok sold in utero to Jennifer Hall of Michigan, congratulations on choosing such a great prospect, Jennifer!!       

She's in foal to Dun It Ok for a 2018 foal!!

Desire Sum Luck (CC)

Summer 2014
Summer 2014

What a mare to have in the brood mare band!  A direct daughter of Paddys Irish Whiskey, she is out of a mare by Genuine Doc & her maternal tail side includes Doc O Lena & Peppy San.  CC won money reining, and she's a great bodied, very friendly mare with big, beautiful brown eyes.  This mare is a power-house in her conformation, disposition, and genetics.

For 2016, CC had a great colt by Pegasus, who has sold to Trish Booy of Red Deer, AB.  Trish has plans to make him into a great horse for her, and perhaps show him some as a working cow horse.  He has the blood and the build for it!  Congratulations, Trish!    

CC had a beautiful sorrel filly by Pegasus in 2017, who is sold to Diana Luft.  Congratulations, Diana!!   

She's in foal to Pegasus for 2018.... yes, the cross is working, so we go back again!

Jeeps Grand Cherokee (Cherokee)

This very well-bred, well made, proven mare came to us from a friend and is in our brood mare band on a breeding lease, and she had a beautiful Pegasus filly in 2017.  She's already booked for a private breeding for 2018, but will be available again for a 2019 foal, for anyone thinking about future breedings.       

"Cherokee" is an earner of $2751 NCHA & she only started showing at 10 years old!  She's by Genuine Jeep, and out of a mare that won about $70,000 showing weekends only.  Cherokee is a granddaughter of both Genuine Doc & Shorty Lena, and she's one of those mares with no weak spots on the papers, sporting names like Doc Bar, Peppy San, Doc O Lena & Freckles Playboy all on the face of her papers.

She's super quiet minded and used for everything from show to trail rides.  This is a good mare.  

Cherokee's 2017 foal by Pegasus sold to Jocelynne Palin of Chestermere, AB.  Congratulations, Jocelynne!!  

She's in foal to Pegasus again for 2018... a much anticipated second foal for this mare!

Peppy Levana (Demi)

"Demi" is a beautiful, well-bred mare that has been a great producer.  Demi is broke, beautiful and carries some great cow-horse bloodlines - as an own daughter of Got Pep by Peppy San Badger, and out of a mare by Ian Tyson's Docs Summer Wages. 

In 2010, Demi  foaled out a filly by Simply A Spark who is a full brother of Shining Spark. The filly was a sweetheart of a filly, the in-your-pocket type.  She sold to Chrystal in northern BC.  Her 2011 buckskin colt by Jax Fed Ex was popular from the moment he hit the ground, a beautiful, stately, and decidedly male colt that made you think "stallion".   Demi had a beautiful buckskin filly by JFE in 2013 & she sold at 2.5 days old to our friend Joanne Block from Vulcan, AB.  2014 saw a beautiful, big, strong, striking bay filly "Princeess Layha" who will be staying with us.  2015 filly was by Blue, she's dun and very lovely!  Congratulations to Sharon Davis on having a good eye and picking out a good one to take home!  Demi's first Pegasus foal is a sorrel, flashy colt born in 2016, and now belongs to Jackson Holm.  Demi had a fantastically beautiful filly by Pegasus in 2017, who now belongs to Diana Luft of BC.  

Demi is in foal to Dun It Ok for 2018, and this foal sold in our Designer Foal Program, where you pick the stallion and the mare for your AQHA dream baby!

Peppys Foxy Star (Foxy)

Spring 2012
Spring 2012

This beautiful and well-bred mare is one that we are very happy to be counting in our brood mare band.  She can trace 25% of her blood to the mighty Peppy San, so there certainly should be a lot of cow in whatever she produces!  Granddaughter of Chunkys Monkey (NCHA Finals, 1974 4th Open Non-Pro; 1975 4th Open Finals)  She has done some cutting, some reining, been used as a ranch horse, and has even done some hunter under saddle.  A stunningly beautiful mare to see in person, she is also a great-minded mare who deals with everything you can throw at her.  The kind we like, a think first and react second type of horse, instead of being the opposite.  

She produced a great stud colt by Jaz Poco Goldun Blue in 2013, and a perfectly beautiful grulla filly by him in 2014 who's making her home in Indiana, USA.  Foxy's 2015 dun filly by Jaz Poco Goldun Blue is as pretty as her full siblings before her - and sold in utero to Jerry Morphy - congratulations, Jerry!!     

Foxy has a stunning bay colt at side by Champ Silverado for 2017.

Jaxed Cinch (Frankie)

"Frankie" is a Jax Fed Ex daughter, out of a grand ol' foundation bred mare that was used for a little of everything in her life.  She still has Leo on the face of her papers.

Frankie is a strongly made, 15.2HH old style foundation bred mare, the kind of 'base mare' we like in the band.  She had a fantastic silver bay filly by Champ Silverado for 2017, and this filly will be making her home along the Washington coast with Stacy Day, congratulations, Stacy!!    

She's in foal to Champ Silverado again for 2018!    


Heidi Dun Hickory (Heidi)

We are so very happy to have a mare of this caliber to add to our mare power.  Heidi is sired by Docs Hickory & out of a mare by Holidoc by Doc Quixote.  Her mother's maternal grand sire was Doc O Lena, so Heidi is actually line-bred back to Doc Bar, carrying 37.5% of his blood.  She is very powerfully built, strong legs and joints and proper balance throughout.  She's a sensitive mare, but kind to handle.   

The great part is this package is all wrapped up in a dun color, with minimal white.  

Heidi's 2016 foal by Simply A Spark is just what we wanted; a filly with minimal white, and after color testing, she's actually a grulla!  She's sold to Alan Leys of Alberta, and she'll go to live with Alan's previous filly he purchased from us - who was by Pegasus and out of a Grays Starlight daughter.         

Heidi is not in foal for 2018.

Lenas Nightmare (Lena)

Here is a marvelously bred aged mare, with a small NCHA earning of over $500.  She's easy to be around and packs quite the punch as a daughter of Badger Starlight (full brother to Grays Starlight, Paddys Irish Whiskey & Gallo Del Cielo) and her mother was a daughter of Smart Little Lena.  She's 5 panel negative.  She's a "go to" mare for riding around this ranch!

JAS Skips Little Lil (Lil)

"Lil" is a 2002 AQHA brown mare by Pepsi Max, and out of a line-bred Skipper W mare that we used and showed. She is a very well put together mare, lots of muscle and good bone, and very straight. She was started as a three year old, and shows the trainability and willingness of her daddy. Superior, free flowing movement at the jog and lope. Lil has the easy-going great mind of her sire, and is just an excellent horse.  She's also 5 panel nn.    

In 2009, Lil produced her first foal, a showey colt with a ton presence by a beautiful and gentlemanly horse out of Texas by the name of CD Chico, by CD Olena, out of a Peppy San Badger mare.  In 2010 Lil had a really beautiful, growthy filly by Simply A Spark, full brother to Shining Spark.  Lil is the kind of mare for what we believe in - perpetuation of the original AQHA principle - versatility.  2011 saw a really great, true QH type brown filly born to Lil by JFE.  2013 - a grulla filly by Jaz Poco Goldun Blue who has made her home in BC, and in 2014 she had a black colt by Playguns Poco Bueno who will live north of Edmonton and become a heel horse.  Cara Frew is the lucky owner of Lil's 2015 black filly, again by Playguns Poco Bueno.  

Lil is in foal to Rollin In My Dually for a 2018 foal!!

Simply Nu Moves (Nancy)

This mare came to us just recently in 2017 from our great friend and mentor in the horse business, Elizabeth Hunton.  She is a daughter of Simply A Spark (full brother to Shining Spark) and out of a daughter of Nu Cash, by Colonel Freckles.  She is being bred to Rollin In My Dually for a 2018 foal.  This mare is big and deep bodied, well made, and carries a ton of the style her daddy had.  We are very happy to have such a good daughter of Simply A Spark in our brood mare band!    

She's in foal to Rollin In My Dually for a spectacularily bred foal in 2018!  This foal will be a grand-baby to CD Olena & Simply A Spark (Shining Spark full brother), and have Doc O Lena, Dual Pep, Dazzling Pistol (Playgun full sister), Genuine Doc & Nu Cash all on the face of its papers.

Miss Pistol Player (Player)

Miss Pistol Player was brought up from Texas to Alberta for use in an Australian Stock Horse breeding program, and then came to us from there.  Not many people have an opportunity to own a mare bred like this one, and many thanks are owed to the friend we were able to acquire her from!  

She was started in cutting training with an eye on NCHA Futurity competition, but an injury sidelined her and she was retired from training and competition.  This mare is a full sister to Playgun and one of only 20 that were ever produced from Miss Silver Pistol.  Embryo inquiries are welcome on this mare; the only one of her pedigree in Canada that we know of.  Player had a fantastic red dun stud colt in 2014, who is going to make his home in northern Alberta, in the Peace Country.  

Player had a dun filly by Jaz Poco Goldun Blue in 2016 - she sports one of the best bottom side AQHA pedigrees to be found anywhere in the world!  This filly is staying with us, you can see her under the "Young Horses" page of this website.

In 2017, Player had a dun filly by Dun It Ok, who sold in utero to Jacki Knight.  Congratulations, Jacki!  

She's bred back to Dun It Ok for a guaranteed dun or grulla foal for 2018!

Pepsis Promise (Promise)

Born in the final year of foals from our late, great herd-sire Pepsi Max.  Out of the mare Impression Ability, a mare whom we showed succesfullly in open & AQHA shows.  Promise is one of the prettiest, most eye-catching mares that you will see.  She is quiet, responsive & correct.  Promise is now started and will spend a few years being ridden before we decide what stallion to breed her to.   

Promise's first foal was a striking silver filly by Champ Silverado, born in 2016.  She was bred back for her 2017 colt, who is sold to Joanne Mott and going to spend at least part of his life being a pony horse on the race-track!  Congratulations, Joanne!  

Promise is not in foal for 2018.     

Pedigree:  http://www.allbreedpedigree.com/jaf+pepsis+promise


Lookinattareata (Reata)

This young silver bay mare came to us from friends, although they didn't really want to part with her!  She spent a number of months in training with our friend and good horseman Adam Thiessen in Saskatchewan, and is now a go to horse for anyone that needs a quiet minded, capable mare for a ride.  She's taller than most of our mares, and an overall sturdy mare.  We appreciate her "user-friendly" mind the most!  5 panel nn through parentage.  

Reata's first foal is a 2017 bay dun, silver dilution carrying colt by Jaz Poco Goldun Blue!!  He sold to Brandon & Rosalyne Thoma of Alberta, congratulations, you guys!  

She's in foal for 2018... to Silver Assured!!

My Blonde Ex (Shelby)

Born here in 2011, Shelby is a daughter of our very own Jax Fed Ex.  She is also a show-stopping, big, strong, growthy, yet very feminine, fine-featured mare.  This is the kind of horse that makes you sure about breeding those two parents again.... and again.... and again....  if it aint broke, dont fix it.  Though sadly we never got this cross again, we are happy to have Shelby and all she brings to our program.  This is one of the nicest mares we have ever raised.  Shelby has 12.5% Poco Bueno blood, along with Doc Bar, Poco Tivio, Poco Tab, & Rocky San (by Peppy San) all on the face of her papers.  Her mother was one of those tremendously producing mares, and after 2 foals with us, it appears that she is too.      

Shelby's first foal, a filly by CE Poco Cara Blanca was born in 2016, a nearly perfect red filly.  She sold to Natasha Teri of Alberta.     

Shelby's 2017 grulla filly by Jaz Poco Goldun Blue sold in utero to Jessica Justinick, 2013 Calgary Stampede Queen!   

For 2018, Shelby is in foal to Rollin In My Dually!

Crossed My Heart (Smoke)

Smoke is a beautiful buckskin daughter of Jax Fed Ex, who came up to us from Oregon.  She is out of a daughter of Jab O Lena ($4,500 + NCHA), by Doc O Lena.  She is a very nice, easy to be around mare who should cross nicely with a couple of our stallions.  

She had a great buckskin colt by Rollin In My Dually in 2015, and he sold to Cynthia Dyck of Leduc, where he'll be going into the reining pen with her! 

Smoke has not had a foal since 2015.

Anns Badgerette (Sugar)

Summer 2014
Summer 2014

A direct daughter of Peppy San Badger (the Texans call him "Little Peppy") out of a daughter of Colonel Freckles, and her maternal great grandsire is Doc Quixote, this is a no holes pedigree mare, with proven performance success in the show pen, & as a brood mare!  We can't thank our friend Kip True of Diamond Land & Livestock in Wyoming enough for the opportunity to own a mare like this.  Sugar had a beautiful chestnut/gray filly by Pegasus in 2015, who went back to live at the ranch her mother came to us from, in Wyoming.  Sugar had another Pegasus filly in 2016, a sorrel filly named Spice.  Spice will be staying with us to take her mothers place in the brood mare band, eventually.     

It looks as though the 2016 filly will be the last one we get from this grand ol' mare, though we are hoping to freeze some oocytes for the future.

Jaz Poco Tiara (Tee)

This sturdy true black mare was bred at the Jaz Ranch, and is a paternal half-sister to our very own Jaz Poco Goldun Blue.  She is a daughter of Little Steel Dust, and she's out of a daughter of Continental King, by King P234.  So, she indeed packs King & Poco Bueno on the face of her papers!   

Tee had a fantastic, tall, elegant silver filly by Silver Assured in 2017, so we've bred her back the same way for 2018!    

Pedigree:  http://www.allbreedpedigree.com/jaz+poco+tiara


Sun N Roses (Tori)

A beautiful and sweet mare, who also happens to be a direct daughter of Mr Sun O Lena.  Originating from the good stock on the Perkins Ranch in Texas, we couldn't be more pleased to have this great set of genetics in such a pretty package to add to the female power here.  

Tori's 2014 colt was a tremendous liver chestnut colt by CE Poco Cara Blanca, who, rightly so, sold to a home where he will have the chance to prove himself and be a stallion.  Tori had a beautiful, great-minded sorrel colt by Pegasus in 2015.  For 2016, Tori had a classic chestnut colt by Pegasus.  He is happily living with a repeat customer of ours from Airdrie, AB!  Congratulations and many thanks, Kaylea!! Tori's 2017 gray colt by Pegasus is going to be a herd sire in Saskatchewan!  Congratulations Dwayne & Lori Chute!   

She's bred back the same way for 2018, to Pegasus.... the old saying goes 'If it ain't broke, don't fix it!'     

Tori is a GBED carrier.  It is a recessive disease, so this means that she carries it but it will never manifest.  If she passes it on to a foal, it would be the same for that foal.  To us, it's not a huge issue because our stallions are all, always 5 panel nn.

Bar IJ Poco Sugar (Zoey)

Zoey came to us afer we got her daddy, CE Poco Cara Blanca.  Injured in a gate sometime in her life before us, she sometimes shows stiffness getting around and so she is not a riding mare.  Zoey is the old style Quarter Horse, thick and substantial, but she's very pretty and feminine through her neck and head.  We are very happy to have this red dun, old-bred mare in our band; thank you to Barry & Sylvia Webb for the chance to have this super mare.    

Zoey had a fantastic, super quiet minded sorrel filly by Rollin In My Dually in 2016, who now lives with her forever family near Chicago, Illinois.  Thank you to the Hunter family!   

Her 2017 red dun filly is from the same cross; only this one will be staying here with us!  You can see her and other "keepers" from our program under the "Young Horses" tab of this website.   

She's bred back the same way for 2018!!
