Winter update…

I figure it’s time for a quick update. Because of personal illness I decided to cut back my numbers during 2019 and sell a few horses. At the time, I only have my favorite horse [SK Candybox] with me and I won’t part with this amazing mare in the near future. However, that means that during this summer I’ve sold the following three horses;

SK Miracle Box

SK Miracle Box (Wimpys Littlecolonel x SK Candybox, by Snackbox). Mira sold to Styrbjörn and Mona Persson of Quarter Hill Ranch. Thank you so much for your continued belief in our breeding program! This is the third horse they’ve purchased from JonssonQH!

DMAC Delta Dawn & SK Snowstorm

DMAC Delta Dawn (Royal Fletch x DMAC Boss Lady, by Smart Little Lena). It was an extremely tough decision to advertise Dixie for sale, she’s my first horse ever. She’s the reason I fell in love with the American Quarter Horse, and she’s made a major impact in our breeding program. The first foal we ever raised is of course out of her, SK First Timer also earned a few NRCHA checks this summer!! SK Snowstorm (Shine N Spook x DMAC Delta Dawn, by Royal Fletch) Dixie’s 2019 filly by NRHA Open Futurity Champion SHINE N SPOOK sold together with her mother. Snowie and Dixie are sold to a wonderful home with Matilda Lundstöm in Boden.

SK First Timer

“Taking both the Limited Open Championship as well as Open Reserve honors was Sweden’s Styrbjorn Persson with Kurt Byquit’s SK First Timer. With the 4-year-old gelding by Acres of Time out of Dmac Delta Dawn between the reins, Persson earned a 199 composite (herd work 63/reined work 67/fence work 69). “I’m happy with these results because after we decided to geld him last year, I only got to ride him for six months due to weather conditions in our country,” he said. “I only started riding him three months ago this year and, because he is still a little green, he was a little insecure and nervous here. In the fence work he was great and I truly felt he loved what he was doing! I would like to take this opportunity to thank Markus, Otto [De Fazio] and all the ERCHA board for the work they do to promote our sport in Europe.” Persson and his mount also claimed the ERCHA Open Hackamore with a 127.5 composite score (reined work 66.5/fence work 61). Aboard Docs Smart Baron, owned by Hakan Hakansson, he went on to win the ERCHA Novice Horse Open with a 133.5 (reinerd work 67.5/fence work 66).” (from the ERCHA website)

SK First Timer

SK First Timer is the FIRST product from our breeding program, and this gelding by Acres of Time (Italy) won his first NRCHA check this past weekend! We’re extremely proud of “Turbo” who’s a son of our great broodmare, DMAC Delta Dawn.

Huge congratulations to owner Kurt Byqvist and rider/trainer Styrbjörn Persson!

Sold horses.

When my life drastically changed earlier this winter I had to make some hard decisions which involved reducing our number of horses for a while… Therefor, I sold Smart Kachina Tag to Austria, PG Lynnie to Belgium and Shine Ice to USA. I am so glad I found such good homes to these great horses and I wish their new owners the best of luck…

Now it’s time for me to focus a little more on our foundation horses; DMAC Delta Dawn and her two daughters SK Candybox & SK Royal Refletchion, as well as her granddaughter SK Miracle Box. These girls are truly amazing! Time will tell what and where to go from here but I’m so proud to have these ladies in my barn! And I’m excited to see our foal by Shine N Spook this spring!!
