Wow, it sure has been a very busy fall and winter for us here. I would like to give a huge thanks to all of you who brought horses to us this winter, we really had a lot of fun. I would also like to thank all you you who come out to the barn for events. We're starting off the year right with lots of roping practice and some open riding nights.
Well now that spring is fast approaching, its about that time to get excited about the babies to come and start thinking ahead to what stud you are breeding to. Of course, we have the wonderful little stud TC here standing at the Top Hatt, and I will be breeding most of my mares ot him this year. I am very excited to see how the more racy mares cross on the little cutting horse - they will be nice! I am also adding some different blood in there too, I'm breeding Super, my race bred paint mare, to a stud out of Deaver, WY named Passngoeffortlessly, SI-107 AAAT. He is a nice stud and you can bet that little colt from this cross will have some get up and go.
There have been two new recent additions to the Wavin' K family. Two palomino mares that will be a huge contrabution to the rodeo and competition horses, as well as the brood mare band. Once is a coming 9 year old names Pheonix. She is an elegant, classy mare that turns heads everywhere she goes. She was born and raised on the renowned Cowan Ranch, breeders of Sun Frost. Her bloodlines are the very ones found at the root of Sun Frost, and the great Frenchmans Guy. Doc's Jack Frost and Sugar Bars, and you bet her colts look at a cow. Next is her daughter, Vegas. She is a bigger mare, but still has her mom's class and refined beauty. She is out of Firem Jet, by Fire Water Flit. What more is there to say, definately within the next year - watch for these lovely golden girls at all the big ones!!
Well the college rodeo season is finally drawing to a close. Old reliable, Clancy, brought me through to a Reserve Championship in the Breakaway Roping for the Central Rocky Mountain Region, and we are CNFR bound! This is very exciting for me, I am looking forward to this amazing experience!
Now that summer is at a head, I have a lot of work coming in. This spring, I have had some colts here in Laramie, and they have been progressing very well. I am getting a whole new bunch as soon as I get back to Wheatland, and the busy summer begins. I am looking forward to rodeoin' a lot this summer and seasoning a couple of my own younger rope and barrel horses. Also, the new addition, Bubba, has proved himself this spring at the college rodeos heading, and I am looking forward to riding him this summer. My "project" for this summer, a gelding named Otter, should be fun as well. I am starting him on barrels and he is already showing a ton of potential.
Well that's all for now, I hope the summer is shaping up to be a wonderful one for all of you! See 'ya down the road...
Hi all. Well this semester of school is over. Finally. Now only three to go (lord willing). Now it's crunch time at the Barn. I have a lot of colts coming in this month, plus I've got to get a leg up on some of my own. I'm looking forward to getting away from school for a while and getting to ride a lot this winter in the nice Barn. We have a lot of things scheduled in the arena too - barrel races, team ropings, practice cuttings, etc. Be sure to check out www.tophattequine.com Event Calendar to see the schedule! Also, I have put a couple of my good horses up for sale, sadly. I have up and coming prospects and expenses to take care of (like buying hay ugh) so I am letting them go. Smoke and Ace will be greatly missed, but when they are sold I know they will greatly BENEFIT their new owners. Well, that's all I have for now. I hope all of you have a very Merry Christmas. And remember, Jesus is the reason for the season. Take care and God Bless.
