New Slybaby on the way!~

We have found a new niche for Sly--more and more of his babies started going to barrel homes, so we are going with it. We have severely limited the mares who are being bred to him, and chose to breed no mares to him at all last year. This year, I decided there were a few that would suit, and I am so excited to announce that Red Dees Lassie checked in foal to him today. She is a top 10 producer of barrel point earners

Red Dees Lassie is the dam of Lassie Lender. I have listed her accomplishments below, but one of the highlights is that she has over 1200 AQHA points. Most barrel and pole stuff though happens way outside the AQHA arena, though, so many of her accomplishments are not tracked by AQHA. At one time (and may still), she was the Quarter Horse Congress record holding pole horse, and is a 3 time World Champion in barrels and poles. She once earned 75 AQHA points in one show. You can read a cute article about her and her owner here

Here is Lassie's AQHA record.

Needless to say, we are thrilled to have a mare of this caliber in Sly's court. We cannot wait to see what happens. Lassie herself is coming to visit as soon as she foals her first baby, which is due July 4.

Talk about making a splash in his first big foray into the speed events, huh?

Would you believe that one of the first shows DL brought Lassie to was a fair show in Fairfield? I'm not sure if he rode her for competition or just put her in trainers, but he let me ride her around the showgrounds. I guess she liked me as she didn't throw me off. She has come a long way. hooves

Good Boy Sly!

Can't wait to see that baby next year!

It's wonderful to see quality speed horses being bred back to quality cow horses.

Barrel horses have gotten way too much 'run' bred into them in the last few years. Yes, they are fast. But they are not holding up. Too light boned and no brain.

Good for you guys and I hope Sly's babies kick some butt in the barrel pen!!
