Born 5-3-17. 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. Sarabi was Mufasa’s mate and Simba’s mother.
‘Sarabi’ a special palomino roan filly with definite roaning already present. She has a star and at this time we are unable to tell how much white she has on her legs if any. She is the second foal for her dam, Dry Biscuit Mujer JW. But a first for this pairing. ‘Biscuit’ was purchased from Grantier Quarter Horses as a weanling. She is multiple generations of Granter’s breeding program. On her damside, Kingsburys Buck was often referred to as Larry Grantier’s best mare at that time. Maternal grandsire is Mujer Tacky Jay who sired too many ranch, family, 4-H, performance horses to count in his breeding career. The Zans Banjoe lines are also cornerstone in their program. Last but not least is her sire Dry Pages who as a 1995 stallion has also sired more than his share of excellent using horses. We are very proud to have this Dry Pages daughter in our program. You can read more about Biscuit on her page. Her first foal was with Whoop Up Whiskey JW, 2014 Whiskey Up Cowboy JW in a bay roan gelding in the Sandhills of Nebraska ranching.
Sarabi’s sire is TRR Paddys Texas Gin aka Tex. This is Tex’s ninth foal crop. He puts very thick and muscular foals on the ground with very nice muscle expression on them as well as a lot of athleticism and as they develop they have a lot of vigor. The oldest ones have been started under saddle by various buyers and we are hearing good things from all of them. 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—Tanquery Gin, Doc O’Lena, Docs Starlight, Poco Tivio, Peppy San Badger.
Sarabi is an example of a foal produced when we breed a taller, bigger mare to Tex. This is a stout filly that should mature definitely at that 15 hands plus. She will have plenty of ‘cow’ to go any direction whether it be performance horse, rodeo horse, or an all-around ranch horse. She is pretty, feminine and should have an A+ disposition. We are pretty darn thrilled with this nice correct filly.

UPDATE 9-6-17. This filly is fantastic and continues to display a high degree of roaning. By the looks of her she really should hit that 15 to 15-2 height. She is halter broke, weaned and ready to go. More pictures and videos available upon request.
