Born 4-17-17. Some years we do a fun theme for names. This year we decided to go with names of characters from The Lion King Movie from 1994. Some of the characters will be more well known than others and some names are from the sequel movies. This filly is named Nala who was Simba's girlfriend.
‘Nala’ is a brown filly with a star and matching rear white ankles. She’s built just right with a super nice cowhorse pedigree and a sweet disposition and is just about a carbon copy twin of her 2015 sister, Chinks. Her dam, Blondy Bueno, is cutting bred with Doc Bar, Bueno Chex, Peppy San and Tianna Leo x Leo on her papers. She has very quickly become our top mare. Blondy is a palomino and produced a smoky black filly, Bueno Macy Reed JW, in 2010 by JK Jay Reed that is carrying the cream gene. Macy broke out great and after using her on the ranch, she joined the broodmare bunch and had a 2014 buckskin filly Paddys Gin Timber JW who has stayed here on the ranch with one of our employees and a 2016 buckskin stallion,Paddys Gin Falcon JW who is now in Arkansas. Blondy’s 2011 Obi Wan Kenobi Reed JW went to a roper here in ND. 2012 Bueno Kotoa Evans JW is now in Texas as a steer tripping prospect and broke out well. Her 2013 foal, Paddys Gin Bueno JW, is in Montana as a reined cowhorse prospect. Her 2014 filly, Whiskey Up Chloe JW, went to Missouri and her 2015 filly, Whiskey Up Chinks JW, has been retained here on the ranch with us and is currently in reined cowhorse training. Her 2016 colt, Whiskey Up Rebel JW is now in Oklahoma with a family and giving rides to little kids already.
This is Blondy’s fourth foal by Whoop Up Whiskey. ‘Whoop’ is a 2010 son of Paddys Irish Whiskey and out of a great John Scott mare, My Little Sugar Babe. The Paddys Irish Whiskey horses are making a name for themselves in everything from cutting to cowhorse events to roping horses and are very versatile. A key difference between Whoop Up Whiskey and our other PIW son, TRR Paddys Texas Gin, is the dam pedigree. While both dams go back to Doc O Lena, Whoop’s goes to Doc O Dynamite who also stood at the John Scott Ranch. Doc O Dynamite was an Equi-State leading cutting sire from 1999-2005 who produced money earners and according to his performance record, his daughters have produced many money earning foals in AQHA, NCHA, NRHA and NRCHA. Doc O Dynamite has a pedigree that traces back to Three Bars giving a bit more stretch and speed to his offspring and shows up on the pedigree of many arena and speed event horses. Whoop Up Whiskey aka Whoop brings that little more height and length and speed to our program as compared to TRR Paddys Texas Gin. He has excellent bone, athleticism and conformation. His lineage tells us that his offspring will have cow and will be capable of performing at any level.
We fully expect this to be a top foal for the year if she develops to her genetic potential. Blondy and Whoop are disposition plus horses. Nala will have all the right moves to go any direction in the cowhorse world from cutting, reining, versatility, reined cowhorse, rodeo performance or just all around ranch horse. We are seeing a lot of style and grace in these Whoop babies. .

UPDATE 8-13-17. Nala is a very stout chunk of a filly. She is hanging on to her baby fuzz but we expect her to continue to shed out very dark bay/brown. We still have her sister in training and her brother with the kids and family in Oklahoma. Nala is friendly in the pasture and quite the challenge to get pictures of. She currently has a pretty bushy mane which is typical of her mama's foals. Eventually it tames down really nicely.
