Breed to a Blue Roan Stallion-High Brow Cat/Peptoboonsmal bred

This Blue Roan Stallion, Cat Blues DR, is homozygous black (will only throw black colts) and bred for performance.

His sire, High Flyin Cat, is a son of High Brow Cat. High Brow Cat is the all time leading sire of the cutting horse industry and he is the sire of a record 7 NCHA Open Futurity Champions. High Flyin Cat also goes back to Smart Little Lena and Bueno Chex.

His dam, Pepto Blue Belle DR, is a daughter of NQH Mossy Boon and grand-daughter of Peptoboonsmal. NQH Mossy Boon was an AQHA JR Reining World Show Open finalist and a Finalist in the NSHA Open Futurity and the NSHA Reining Futurity Champion.

SDP Blu Rey is a gorgeous blue roan colt by TR Dual Rey.  TR Dual Rey has over $350,000 in NCHA earnings and he quickly showed that he was equally as impressive as a sire by winning the coveted AQHA Freshman Sire of the Year award in 2008.  His offspring earnings have already exceeded $3.6 million.  And what makes TR Dual Rey so special is that his offspring are winning money in cutting, reining and reined cow horse events.  He is one of the most versatile young stallions in the industry.

5 year old blue roan mare



This mare is stocky and built to carry you all day long. She is all muscle, has a very nice hip, short back and strong and straight legs with a lot of bone. She is 14.3 hands tall and has a gorgeous head. She is a very intelligent mare and has always been the leader.

She has a pedigree full of big names. She goes back to Poco Bueno a few times, Doc Bar, Blue Valentine and other horses with great confirmation, versatility, athleticism and speed. She will make a great ranch horse. She has been started and now has about 20 rides on her. She is learning very well. She has great manners on the ground and leads and loads great. We will continue to ride her 4-5 times a week all spring and summer.

We also plan on breeding her in April to our (homozygous black) blue roan stud, Cat Blues DR. With this cross the colt next year has a 75% chance of being a blue roan and a 25% chance of being black. No other color is possible. The foundation and ranch breeding crossed on the cutting bloodlines of our stallion will make her colt an excellent ranch, rodeo or cow horse prospect.

She is located in Draper, UT

2008 sorrel cow horse mare


Truckin Reba Lena is a great looking mare with great cow horse breeding.  She was doing very well in training as a 2 yr old when she hurt her leg and when the owners put her in the pasture to recuperate she foundered pretty bad. We have found that as long as she is trimmed and shod every 6-8 weeks and has pads on that she is still a great horse. She has only gotten sore on us when she doesn't have the pads on and she gets a bruised sole. We bred her in 2012 and she had a great looking filly. She is open now so you can take her and put more hours on her (she already has a great foundation) or you can breed her again. She will make a great broodmare. She has great breeding and is a very well built horse with a pretty head. She is at least 14.3 hands tall.

She is by NMSU Tuckin Chex (Elvis) who has NRCHA LTE of over $200,000 and he is by the great reining horse and sire Nu Chex To Cash.

She is loaded with reiners, cutters and cow horses. She is a versatile horse that wants to please. She is very trainable. She will be bred to our blue roan stud Cat Blues DR this April. He is homozygous black. We are riding her in the arena about 3 times a week right now.
