Born 5-27-23. Some years we do a fun theme for names. This year we decided to go with Geology and things that come from the ground. Many of these names are a little loose in thoughts regarding if they are elements, minerals, rocks, gemstones or colors etc. Chalcedony is the form of Quartz that is compact and microcrystalline. It occurs in many different forms, colors, and patterns, and many varieties have been used as gemstones since antiquity. In the gemstone trade, the term Chalcedony is often used specifically to describe the white, gray, or blue translucent type of Chalcedony, but its technical term includes all additional varieties.
‘Chalcedony’ is a palomino stallion with a white blaze and left rear stocking. There may be white on his other feet, but we can’t tell this early and will update as he ages and sheds. His dam, Angel Lace Reed JW, aka Angel, is a foal we raised ourselves and is a very special mare for us as she is named after her wonderful grandmother, BP Princess Lace, who is now deceased after raising her very last foal for us in 2014. Angel is just a fantastic JK Jay Reed daughter out of a Peponita granddaughter, Peponita Laceyed JW. She is moderately sized and nice and thick. We are pretty excited about what she is looking like. We think we see a bit of the Two Eyed Jack coming through from her maternal side. Angel is 94% NFQHA (F0039271). The dam’s sire is our very own JK Jay Reed aka Pine Cone, a 96% foundation bred stallion. The JK Jay Reed horses have a huge amount of ‘cow’. They are very smart, athletic, kind and fast learners. They are the kind of horses that can go any direction from the ranch to trail to show to rodeo. His pedigree speaks for itself and is as foundation bred as they come. Poco Pine, Continental King, Whiskey Bert, Joe Reed II are all on his papers. It is important to note that King P-234 is very close up in his pedigree and he traces to King a total of 6 times! Angel’s first foal was a 2018 bay filly named Paddys Oak Italy JW by Hiline Whiskey. Her 2020 foal was a palomino stud colt named Amarillo Drift JW by Walter O Rielly. We kept her 2021 filly, Sagebrush Drift JW, and her 2022 filly, Pearl Drift JW, as replacement broodmares for us.
Chalcedony’s sire is Walter O Rielly aka Radar. He has become a great addition to our program, and this is his 10th foal crop for us. We were looking for a foundation Driftwood bred stallion to hopefully get some replacement fillies out of some of our better mares. Radar is a 90.234% foundation bred perlino stallion who goes to King P-234 ten times, to Driftwood four times with strong doses of Joe Reed, Three Bars and a little Doc Bar. Radar is a 16 hand horse with a huge stride and a gentle personality. 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.
Chalcedony is a very nice foundation bred foal. All of Radar’s foals have wonderful dispositions and are BIG horses that can cover some ground out in the open. Chalcedony will be 93% NFQHA and eligible to register. We fully expect him to mature into a bigger horse with a kind disposition based on his two sisters here. He is for sale.
