Baby Ruth was given as a weanling to our youngest son by Barbra Johnson. When we went to register her, it was discovered that Baby Ruth’s mother had accidentally been missed and not registered. We would have needed to register her mother first. At the time, we decided to not financially pursue getting her registered. We have several other unregistered grade horses that ride great and are awesome individuals and set out to make her another one of those. She was shown in 4-H as a yearling and as a 2-year-old in colt to maturity classes and was started under saddle as a 3-year-old. She is an energetic mare and has a fast walk. Unfortunately, she split about a third of a front hoof off and required rest and re-growth time through most of her 4-year-old year. Spring of 2008 when we got her in to use her, it seemed that she did not handle hard use and was still favoring that foot.
Since she belongs to our son, we wanted to keep her around. She has been helping babysit the yearlings and two year olds and sets a good example by being caught first and then used as the decoy to calm the rest when we first come to the pasture. She has a beautiful dun color with very black points and lots of dun factoring. Take a good look at her pictures. Her bloodlines are accurate even without the papers to prove it. Warren’s 73 year old dad is riding a four year old brother (the palomino saddle gelding in several pictures on this site) by her same sire. Her sire, Docs Monkey Jay comes from the Grantier Ranch at Winnett, Montana. See their link on our links page. He goes back to Dry Doc, Clarks Doc Bar, Lady Bugs Moon and Mujer Tacky Jay. On her bottom side please note Alamitos Bar and Showdown Rick.
This is the perfect chance to get a foundation bred foal with cow, looks and history at a very discounted price. Baby Ruth’s 2009 dun filly, Taz, is now in Tennessee, registered with IBHA and showing in American Ranch Horse Association shows; 2010 dun colt, Yogi, is in Kentucky were he will have opportunity to be shown as well; 2011 sorrel colt, Yoda, is in Nebraska to be ranched on; and 2012 dun filly, Muff, is also in Tennessee with older sibling, Taz. Her 2013 dun filly, Shimmy, is sure not to disappoint. All are by JK Jay Reed aka Pine Cone who is 96% foundation. She was pasture exposed to "Pine Cone" again for 2014 and had a solid dun filly, Chile. Baby Ruth had a 2015 dun stallion, Snuffleupagus. Her 2016 foal is another dun stallion, Maverick. She had a sorrel filly, Cricket, for 2017. Wait to see what her 2018 Pine Cone foal will be!
