Bred to Buckskin for 2015
16.1 HH JACKIE BEE / KING FRITZ broodmare in foal to my Buckskin stallion, CLASSIC POCO CASH with bloodlines of OLD TOM CAT, POCO PINE, MR TAILWIND, RED D CASH for April 2015. She's "one of them kind of mares" you hope to have but unfortunately she is crippled now with navicular. I had her legs X-rayed some years ago and was told that the farrier at the time taking her heels off caused it. If she was not already vet ultrasounded in foal I would have had my vet put her down. Bee has her good and bad days. It is too hard for her anymore to try and keep up to the rest of the herd here in my large pasture with the hills. She needs a new home with a small area to travel, lots of feed and grain. A very big mare and will drop weight rapidly if not fed well, especially when nursing a foal which she is now. He will be weaned earlier than I normally wean but he is in great shape, big and strong, he will be fine and it will be better for her. Bee has been an awesome broodmare over the years and is out of the best broodmare I've ever owned. Bee even raised an orphan foal along with her own when she was in good shape. I have kept back two of her daughters that are now in the broodmare band. She always produces tremendous babies, 3 buckskin, 4 bay, 1 sorrel and 1 red roan. If she has a buckskin you can easily figure it worth $2000 and it will be big. Her offspring all stand 15.2 to 17 HH and get great dispositions. Bee was broke to ride when young which makes her easy to handle. Again, she is NOT capable of riding anymore even with bute and you are not going to " shoe " her out of it. With the number of horses here at this ranch it is just too hard to care for the high maintenance ones. Stud fee is $500 and am selling her for same. Her foal will be worth 4 times her price. Very sad to see her leave but I want to give her the chance to have this hopefully last foal. Picture of the buckskin with someone holding him is the stud she is bred to. The other pictures are some of her foals at different ages. ( Added note: I took her out of the big pasture into a smaller area and she has gotten much better in a very short time with weight gain back. She does not drop grain so her teeth are fine. I suspect another foal in the pasture may have been robbing off her milk ) I will not let this mare go to anyone with a long haul, plan to wean very soon now. I am considering keeping one weanling filly back for the broodmare band, this mare could go with her for the winter possibly. I am still considering having her put down even in foal.
