Sweden “welcomes” another Metallic Cat stallion!

It is with immense excitement for the Scandinavian market I announce that our dear friends at the Quarter Hill Ranch has acquired a colt by the one and only, Metallic Cat! This investment was made together with Peter and Ingela, fellow cutters from the north part of Sweden!! SMART AND METALLIC is definitely one to keep an eye on, he comes with an amazing bottom side which I’m a keen fan of!! I love his 2nd and 3rd dams!

We are so happy to have played a small part of the journey to make SMART AND METALLIC a Swedish owned superstar! Congratulations to all involved!!

NRCHA Training

Exciting times are laying ahead of us here at JQH. Sally is now moving to California! There he will be in training with NRCHA Professional Phillip Ralls. We want to take this opportunity to thank Phillip and his wife Teresa for your dedication to our special colt.  After our first approach to you back in February, we instantly knew that we’d found “our” trainer… 

DMAC Delta Dawn

This is our first AQHA mare, DMAC Delta Dawn [a.k.a. Dixie]. We are slowly trying to build a program around this fantastic individual. Dixie was bred by the McDavid family in Texas (owner of the late Hes A Peptospoonful). We imported her from South Dakota, USA back in 2012. She’s by NCHA Open Futurity Champion and Million Dollar sire Royal Fletch and out of a money earning and producing daughter of NCHA Open Futurity Champion, NCHA Triple Crown Champion, NCHA Hall of Fame & Multi-Million Dollar sire Smart Little Lena. What makes this mare special to us however is the great maternal side of her pedigree, her second dam is a money producing daughter of Freckles Playboy and her third dam is no other than the great LENAETTE who should not need a further introduction. BUT, she was the 1975 NCHA Open Futurity Champion and she is the dam of horses like Young Gun, Freckles Merada and Playboys Mom! Other descendants are Metallic Cat, Moms Stylish Pepto, Peptos Stylish Oak, Smart Letha and many, many more…

This is our newly acquired broodmare by Whiz N Tag Chex.
Don’t y’all agree that SMART KACHINA TAG is a real good looking lady?
We are so excited about her, and her 2018 foal by Spooks Gotta Gun!!!!

Thank you Veronika Photography for your photos!

DMAC Delta Dawn, finally in foal!

It is with absolute excitement we are announcing that we are expecting not only one, but two foals by Wimpys Littlecolonel in 2018!! Earlier today our beloved mare DMAC Delta Dawn was confirmed in foal to this fantastic son of NRHA Hall of Fame member, NRHA Open Futurity Champion & NRHA $9 Million Dollar Sire Wimpys Little Step!

As many of you know: we had originally booked Dixie to the great Spark N Whiz in Italy, however, after some consideration we decided to use the last dose of frozen semen [by Wimpys Littlecolonel] due to some minor shipment issues with the cooled semen from Italy. We love Spark N Whiz and hope to use him in 2019 instead!

We can never thank our amazing reproduction veterinarian Aurélie Allard enough for her hard work and dedication! She is absolutely amazing and a pleasure to work with! I can only hope that she will help us more in the future!!
