Born 5-16-10. ‘Yogi’ is certainly destined to be a big, good looking gelding. He looks to be a red dun with lots of dun factor, a big round star, a white right front pastern and rear right ankle. His sire is JK Jay Reed. He is 96% foundation and he throws wonderful dispositions on his babies. Most of his foals are born looking for people to be friends with people and Yogi is no exception to that. He came right up to us the next day. Please read about his mother, Baby Ruth, and you will see why he is important to our son and to us. Yogi will not be able to be registered with AQHA, but his background is all quarter horse and fairly high percentage foundation. Baby Ruth is an athlete and this colt should be too. He’s got that gorgeous color, a proven background and not a thing wrong with him other than the lack of AQHA papers. You don’t ride the papers and if papers don’t matter to you, this colt should easily have a future as a riding athlete. His bloodlines are accurate even without the papers to prove it. This is the perfect chance to get a foundation bred foal with cow, looks and history at a much discounted price. We would gladly discuss Yogi with anyone interested in him as a 4-H or FFA project. His 2009 full sister, Taz, went to Tennessee where she is now registered with IBHA and is being shown there in American Ranch Horse Association competitions. We will be pursuing those registries for Yogi as well. $800 (US)
UPDATE 11-20-10. This colt has developed the 'WOW Factor' as he matured. Yogi surprised us as his points came in black and he isn't a red dun after all. We are very happy with how he filled out, how smart and easy he was with haltering and again he will make an awesome gelding. His sister, Taz, stood 3rd in the world for ARHA for yearling mares and 6th in 2 and under youth mares in 2010. Yogi left of Kentucky where he will be part of the Thomas Workman family. Please take time to view their family website, The Horseman's Retreat LLC, and see all the wonderful opportunities that Yogi is going to have with them. We wish them much success!
