‘Kitty’ is a solid black, 86% foundation mare that is owned by Barbra Kennedy Johnson until she was given to our daughter, Ella. This has been a favorite, good producing mare for Barb. Her foals have gone on to become successful riding horses. Kitty came off the Schiffer Ranch at Rosebud, Montana as a weanling. It is hard to find any holes in her pedigree—Hired Hand, Jet Deck, Poco Bueno, Little Freckles In 2005, when our daughter was looking for a new 4-H colt to maturity project, she chose Kitty to be bred to JK Jay Reed aka Pine Cone. The resulting foal in 2006 was our My Kittys Belle JW. That was Kitty’s first breeding with Pine Cone and we were very impressed and have continued to breed her back to him. She has produced a 2008 bay filly, Leta Reed JB; a 2009 bay filly, My Kittys Melody JW and a 2010 sorrel stallion, Little Diego Reed JW. She out produces herself every time. All of Kitty's offspring with JK Jay Reed are 91% foundation eligible with NFQHA.
UPDATE 3-15-12. This GRAND old mare has passed on. She will be missed but will continue to be a cornerstone in our program. Her 2008 daughter, Leta, has entered the broodmare bunch. Thanks for the great memories, Kitty!
