Our family has a long of history of ‘giving away a little’. Pepsi will be either free or greatly discounted to the right individual/family. Adults & anyone can apply. Special considerations will be given to 4-H, FFA & College Equine Students! Please apply—we’d love to hear from you!
Born 6-7-10. Pepsi is a one-of-a-kind filly for our program. Her dam, Leos San Ella JB aka Pepper, is our only APHA broodmare. Unfortunately, her sire, JK Jay Reed is not approved by APHA as a sire due to a long ago glitch—feel free to ask us to explain this to you. Had we known, we would have chosen a different stallion for Pepper. Pepsi will NOT be registered. Regardless, she is a top-notch filly from very proven bloodlines and using ranch horses. She has a crazy white face, a right front white ankle and her right eye is the characteristic APHA blue. Her sire, JK Jay Reed , is 96% Foundation with Poco Pine, Joe Reed II, Whiskey Bert, Continental King and Senor San all on his papers & going to King P-234 six times! He puts a super disposition on his foals and most of them are born looking for people to be friends with people. Leos San Ella JB is registered with APHA but her pedigree is ¾ quarter horse. She was used on our ranch and has several using siblings who are currently the backbone group of horses on the ranch. Pepsi is a foal that is the result of the cumulative efforts of Barb Kennedy Johnson’s breeding program these last many years. Pepsi will be a very eye-catching and unique individual that will mature around 15-1 or 15-3 and will be built stout and solid with a shot of speed and LOTS of cow instinct.
UPDATE 11-20-10. We had several essay applications, it was a very hard choice and Pepsi finally was awarded to Jessica the end of August. She stayed with us until November to grow a little more. Pepsi is a little smaller in stature, but thick and well proportional. She is a quick learner, quick on her feet and has a nice disposition. With Jessica she will have the opportunity to develop into an all round family horse and get lots of exposure to roping. We wish them all the luck together!
