Born 4-23-18. “Rocco”’ is a nice dark bay roan colt with a star, snip both rear ankles, front left half pastern and a right front coronet higher in the front. Mama, Tiff, is one of our top mares and comes through with friendly top babies every year. They all have broken out well and that makes us extra excited about this little guy. Rocco’s dam, Mujer Lady Dial JW aka Tiff, is one of our Mujer Tacky Jay daughters. She is 81% NFQHA and was purchased from Grantier Quarter Horses because her mare line is very close to several of our VERY PROVEN ranch horses. Mujer Tacky Jay, now deceased, made a name for himself producing using horses for the family, ranch, arena and youth. We really believe in these horse families. We really like Tiff’s stout build and kind personality. Her foals should be a very friendly and well-put-together with this mare as their mama. Her 2010 buckskin filly, Paddys Gin Dakota JW and 2011 bay colt, Paddys Gin Boba JW have stayed in ND. Both have broken out well and are currently being used on ranches. Her 2012 palomino filly, Paddys Gin Sage JW is in TX and showed tremendous potential in ranch versatility and now is being used as a broodmare. Her 2013 bay filly, Paddys Gin Boogie JW, headed to North Carolina with a repeat buyer and will not disappoint. Her 2014 foal, Whiskey Up Stitch JW, was the first pairing from this cross and headed to California and has started nicely and her 2015 foal, Whiskey Up Amigo JW, is now in Nevada as a roping prospect. Her 2016 bay colt, Whiskey Up Torino JW, is now in Oklahoma. Her 2017 baby Whiskey Up Shenzi JW is now in Nebraska.
Rocco’s sire is Jacks Our Bartender, a new stallion for us. Jacks Our Bartender is a son of Bartenders Memory by Two ID Bartender and out of a granddaughter of Two Eyed Jack, Watch Miss Jo Jackie, born in 2003. Unfortunately, due to a stifle injury from being kicked by a mare, Jack was not able to stay sound enough to enter the show ring, but was able to prove his athletic ability. Since then several of his colts have ended up in the roping arena and continue to prove their athleticism and great minds. By 2015 Hockenson’s realized that he was producing some really great roping horses and decided to see if they could keep his stifle sound enough to show and sure enough in a very short time he quickly earned 5.5 AQHA Heading Points of his own proving that his offspring accomplishments were not by chance. He is a great horse to be around and out produces himself every time. Jack has 3 AQHA performing offspring. Many of his other foals have gone on to be great rodeo horses or rope horses competing and earning money in different associations.
We are excited about this pairing and can’t wait to see how Rocco matures and develops. With both Jack’s and Tiff’s proven offspring, Rocoo should be able to really shine rather it is in the arena, breeding barn or show pen! Rocco is now located at Brazoria, TX where his buyer said she was at a point in life where she wants to mounted on one the best looking horses on the ranch. We wish the McCray family all the best with him.
