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… 

No 2017 foal….

It is with mixed feelings that we must share these news, DMAC Delta Dawn came back empty after three A.I. attempts to NRHA Million Dollar Sire Spooks Gotta Gun. We are really sad as we’d hoped for this combination, but at the same time we feel a little positive as her last breed date was in the middle of August… That would’ve meant a VERY LATE 2017 foal if she’d been in foal, which she’s not…

Now we’re trying to figure out our options for the re-breed contract in 2017. We may buy another mare, in the U.S., and breed her to this amazing stallion before shipping her home to Sweden. Let’s see what we’ll do!

Cow Work

This weekend Candy and I, for the first time ever, got to work cattle together. It was such a joy and I could definitely see – and feel – a lot of talent in our little sweetheart. I can’t wait to see what the future has in store for SK Candybox!


We are very blessed to have these four amazing horses, all with an exceptional pedigree, in our barn. We are blessed to live on such a beautiful location along this river, and we are certainly blessed to have each others. Have a great day!
