Born 5-12-19 ‘The Matchmaker’ is a dun filly. We have chosen two movie themes this year to name our foals, one is Aladdin and the other is Mulan. We decided to name this beautiful filly The Matchmaker after the matchmaker in Mulan who is responsible for arranging marriages and evaluating potential brides and grooms; thus, she holds a great deal of influence.
Please read about the dam, Baby Ruth, and you will see why she is important to our family. The Matchmaker will not be able to be registered with AQHA, but her background is all quarter horse and fairly high percentage foundation. Baby Ruth is an athlete and this filly should be too with a proven background and not a thing wrong with her other than the lack of AQHA papers. You don’t ride the papers and if papers don’t matter to you, she should easily have a future as a riding athlete. The Matchmaker’s 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. She is the ELEVENTH of full siblings. Her 2009 dun full sister, Taz, went to Tennessee where she is now registered with IBHA and has stood 3rd in the world for American Ranch Horse Association (ARHA) for yearling mares and 6th in 2 and under youth mares in 2010. She was started under saddle there and had one foal for them. We had the chance to acquire her back and are ranching on her. Taz is very mellow and wonderful to have back! 2010 dun full brother, Yogi, is in Kentucky, started under saddle and we continue to hear good things about him. 2011 Yoda has been started on a ranch in Nebraska. 2012 Muff is in Tennessee with a repeat buyer purchase. 2013 filly, Shimmy, went to be the family ranch horse in Oklahoma. Baby Ruth’s 2014 filly, Chile, was injured as a weanling and is unfortunately no longer with us. 2015 stallion, Snuffleupagus, was in California and then on to Calgary Canada; 2016 Maverick is now in Michigan with a great family. Her 2017 full sibling, Cricket, was sold to a sweet family near the ND/SD border. 2018 Sibling, Sunkist, is also for sale.
The Matchmaker’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. All her siblings have easy going personalities and have been gentle to halter and saddle break. They are all like peas in a pod. If you know one you know them all. This is a VERY CONSISTENT pairing. She will mature at 15-2+. Her siblings have often been offered towards a 4-H youth. They have all made family horses. We are potentially thinking about keeping her as a replacement for her mother at this time.
