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. ย After our first approach to you back in February, we instantly knew that we’d found “our” trainer…ย 

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…

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]ย 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 Aurรฉlie 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!!

2nd mare confirmed in foal!

It is almost too good to be true, we are so happy. ๐Ÿ’– Our mare, Smart Kachina Tag has been confirmed in foal for 2018 to NRHA Million Dollar Sire Spooks Gotta Gun! We are beyond excited, and extremely thankful, that after all these years – we finally have our dream NRHA prospect on the way! ๐Ÿ’– Now, all we can do is pray that our sweet mare stays pregnant and that we get a healthy foal next spring!ย ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ’ž๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ’ž๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ’ž๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ’ž

Smart Kachina Tag, yearling video

I just found the yearling sale video of our broodmare Smart Kachina Tag. After watching it what feels like a trillion times, I can honestly say that I am very excited to own this mare. I think, and hope, that she will produce many good foals for us in the future.ย ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ’™

Dixie is still open

Sometimes it doesn’t work out as you planย to. But the trick is not to make it aย big deal! After attempting to breed our mare DMAC Delta Dawn in the 2016 breeding season with the help of imported frozen semen [with no luck I may add] we decided to breed her with shipped cooled semen instead. But due to some bacterias in her uterus, we have had problem with getting her in foal. However, our vet. at the Salsbro Stuteri works tirelessly with the issue and we hope to get her in foal eventually… I cannot thank Aurรฉlie Allard enough for the hard work and passion she puts into this, and I’m so glad to have her on our team!

The second insemination of DMAC Delta Dawn for this season should hopefully take placeย within a week or so.ย ๐Ÿ‘
