Born 4-27-11. We are having a little fun by using a Star Wars theme for names this year. Amidala is a darker bay with just two little dots of white hairs on her forehead and no other white and she is filling out really nicely. Her mother is one of our Mujer Tacky Jay fillies daughters and she is turning out to be a great mother. Mujer Johny Bar JW aka Johny is 81% NFQHA and was purchased from Grantier Quarter Horses as a weanling. Mujer Tacky Jay, now deceased, made a name for himself producing using horses for the family, ranch, arena and youth. Joy Night Jay has all the proven Grantier bloodlines that we know well in many of our proven saddle horses. To Little Johny went back to a lot of greats such as Poco Bueno, Depth Charge, Leo, Chicaro Bill, Chief by Peter McCue and Joe Hancock. We really believe in these well established horse families. Amidala’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. Amidala is 88.5% 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. Her lines will also give you plenty of speed. JK Jay Reed offspring have wonderful dispositions. Her 2010 full sister, Miss Norway Reed JW, is in Oklahoma and 2012 full sister, Swiss Miss Reed JW is in North Carolina. Her 2013 sister, Miss Johny Reed JW, has been retained and we will be ranching on her. Amidala is 10.01% King P-234 and goes to him 11 times. Both dam and sire are HERDA N/N so Amidala is also N/N.
UPDATE 4-16-16: Amidala developed into a beautiful dark bay. She is a powerful filly and yet still feminine. We started her under saddle and kept her for a few years and have recently sold her. We wish her new owner, Tim, every success with her.
