Born 5-1-11. We are having a little fun by using a Star Wars theme for some of our names this year. Wow—this is a great solid bay colt with NO white. ‘Chewie’ is very photogenic and sure has the look of a top notch gelding down the road. If you like the look of his mama, we think you will like this colt. He will probably size up to be a solid 15+ hand gelding. He will be a rider and will cover ground smoothly. Chewie is the second foal out of Mujer Dusty Bar JW aka Dusty who is 83% NFQHA and was purchased from Grantier Quarter Horses because her mare line is very close to several of our VERY PROVEN ranch horses. Mujer Tacky Jay, now deceased, made a name for himself producing using horses for the family, ranch, arena and youth. There are a lot of great horses in Dusty’s pedigree from Jet Deck and Leo Tag just off her papers to other greats Three Bars, Poco Bueno and old time horses like Old Sorrel. Dusty also fantastically goes back to King 7 times! We really believe in these horse families.
Chewie’s sire is JK Jay Reed aka Pine Cone, a 96% foundation bred stallion with Poco Pine, Continental King by King P-234, Joe Reed II and Whiskey Bert all on his papers. Pine Cone has King P-234 fairly close up and goes back to him six times. Pine Cone puts a lot of ‘cow’ into his foals. Chewbacca is 89.5% foundation eligible with the NFQHA and will be able to go any direction from trail to ranch horse with plenty of ‘cow’ and stoutness for roping as well. His lines will also give you plenty of speed and he’s going to be big enough to be one of those geldings to go all day. We expect a very sweet disposition from both dam and sire. Check out two other JK Jay Reed riders, My Kittys Belle JW and Whiskeybertshadow JW. Chewbacca is also very closely bred to Whiskeybertshadow JW’s dam. Chewie’s 2010 full sister is Zanzibar Reed JW. Don’t forget that he goes back to King P-234 a combined 13 times at 9.79%!! Both dam and sire are HERDA N/N so Chewie is also N/N.
UPDATE 1-20-13: Everything above says it about this colt. Chewie is a top notch colt and we are happy to announce that he's now in Nebraska and ready to start a ranching job. Thanks Pat!
