Wasik Ranch features proven producing mares that are own daughters of studs like Smart Little Lena, Freckles Playboy, Wheeling Peppy, and Playgun while other mares show generation after generation of winning in the show pen. We have 5 broodmares on the ranch. We have sold or retired a number of them due to the economy but kept some of the best. In these hard times, we are concentrating on putting only the very best on the ground at a price the average horse person can afford. Here is a closer look at some of our favorites.
This mare has success written all over her papers. Freckles Leo Girl is an own daughter of Freckles Playboy and her bottom side goes back to War Leo. Though Freckles Leo Girl is an earner of $2,000 and 4 points in the cutting pen, it’s her prowess as a producer that stands out. According to Robin Glenn Pedigrees, her foals have won $38,108 at NCHA approved shows. In addition to that, her progeny have earned AQHA Youth Reining points.
Freckles Leo Girl is the dam of the 2003 mare Playgirls Cat (by A Hocus Pocus Cat) who was the 2007 Idaho CHA Derby Amateur Champion and won both the Non Pro and Amateur Derby Championships at the British Columbia CHA Derby. In 2007 Playgirls Cat was ranked #21 in the $3,000 Novice Non Pro NCHA standings. In the Canadian National NCHA stanginhs she was 2nd in the $3,000 Novice Non Pro and 3rd in the $10,000 Novice Non Pro.
Freckles Leo Girl is a big-framed mare and she passes that on to her offspring. We have had the privilege of being around two of her foals; a 2-year-old filly by Joes Irish Barcelena (by Paddys Irish Whiskey) and a yearling by our stallion Boon To Be Wild. Another Boon To Be Wild colt is expected in spring 2012. Her colts are good movers and are very easy to be around. We are very excited about what she has produced so far but at 24 years of age we know that this one might be her last.
Freckles Leo Girl has now been retired as a broodmare. She is spending the last of her days out with Oakoboji Bert. The two of them have become inseperable!
Playguns Smoking (Playgun x Cindy Mambo x My Leo Mambo)came to us from the Babcock Ranch and her career in the breeding barn is off to a fantastic start! Via embryo transfer she produced two foals for the 2011 futurity season and both of them are NRHA winners.
Misters Smokin Gun (by Mister Dual Pep) enjoyed success in the Limited Open by placing 3rd at the Carolina Classic Reining Futurity and 2nd at the Cowtown Classic Futurity in Fort Worth, Texas. The 2008 stallion also had top ten finishes in the Intermediate Open at the Cowtown and the Woosley Darling Ranch 888 Futurity.
Playguns Smoking’s other foal Chic With Guns (by Smart Chic Olena), a 2008 mare, finished 16th at the NRHA Futurity in the Limited Open and 14th in the NRHA Futurity $50,000 Limited Open.
Playguns Smoking is a royally bred mare that has winners and producers of champions all over her papers. Her dam, Cindy Mambo not only produced Shiners Shiner, who was the NRHA Futurity Limited Open Reserve Champion and finished top ten in the NRHA Futurity Open at Oklahoma City, but also has AQHA World and Reserve World Champion reiners and team roping headers and heelers to her credit.
Playgun, the sire of Playguns Smoking, has lifetime earnings of $183,451. Playgun was the 1995 High Point Junior Cutting Horse of the Year. He is an Equi-Stat all-time Top 25 NRCHA stallion and is a Top 30 NCHA stallion.
Playguns Smoking is bred to Oakoboji Bert for a 2014 baby. It should be one heck of a ranch horse with the corssing of those bloodlines.
Play At Bobbin Acres is from Freckles Playboy’s last foal crop and out of a Bob Acre Doc mare.
This big mare has a great confirmation. She’s short to the ground but also has a lot of power and speed. She is breeding good bone and speed in to her foals. She produced an outstanding colt, Playboysdiamondacre, a dark palomino with huge potential. Check him out on his page. She is bred back to Prime Time Shine for a 2014 baby.
Star Decked Legacy was bred to Prime Time Shine for a 2013 foal, her first one for us. And she did not disapoint! Diamond Decked Star is going to be a big horse who we think will excel in either reined cow horse or roping, or both. Check out his page. We liked this cross so much we rebred the mare to Prime Time Shine for a 2013 baby.
This 2003 mare Miss Peppy Martini (Wheeling Peppy x Miss Gin Martini x Tanquery Gin) is bred to be a breeder. By Wheeling Peppy, a sire of NCHA, NRHA and NRCHA money earners and out of a mare by NCHA Futurity finalist Tanquery Gin, Miss Peppy Martini has what it takes to breed on. Miss Peppy Martini has babies sell in several states. She currently has her daughter, Sparkling Tanquery by Prime Time Shine, for sale and is bred back to Prime Time Shine for an early 2014 baby.
Smart Texas is by Smart Little Lena out of Mis Royal Mahogany. This makes our mare one of the very few out there by an NCHA Open Futurity winner out of an Open Futurity winner. Both Smart Little Lena won the open and Mis Royal Mahogany won it (in 1980 under the great Lindy Burch with a score of 225). Smart Texas packs the Atwood Ranch brand on her hip, another great mare from a world class Ranch. She has produced a beautiful filly, the spitting image of her mother, by Prime Time Shine. Check out the filly, Who Dat Shinnin, on her page. Smart Texas will be bred to Cat A Rey in Feburary for a 2015 baby.
