Born 5-17-21 “Juniper” is a palomino filly with a star and some undetermined white on legs. This year our names are flower/tree/rangeland plants themed. It stuck when our first foal was born and we started calling her ‘Posie’ which means a ‘bunch of flowers’. So, we decided to go with it.
Her dam, Bullets Top Lady, aka Kevin” is a sorrel mare we purchased from our friend and daughter’s college professor, Kevin Sedivec. That is why we call her Kevin. She is a daughter of Rawhides Slvr Bullet, AQHA all-time open reining point earner, 351 Open performance points, 27.5 halter points, 18 AQHA Open all-around COM’s and the NRHA Morrison trophy winner. His combined offspring have earnings of over $80,000 in roping, reining, team penning, sorting, ranch, and barrels. Kevin has Topsail Cody on her bottom papers along with Leo and Orphan Drift once off her papers. Cow Lady Drift was known as Orphan Drift’s greatest daughter. She was the earner of 44 AQHA points, was 6th at the AQHA World Show in Senior Reining, and 5th at the AQHA World Show in Senior Working Cow Horse. However, her production as a broodmare was the most impressive. Cow Lady Drift produced fourteen foals. Nine of them were AQHA point earners and four were AQHA Open Champions. Her offspring had a total of 533.5 AQHA points and that is a very notable record. Go a little further back and she has Poco Bueno, Doc Bar and Driftwood Ike. All outstanding horses that contribute to her strong foundation bottom side. Her first foal was 2019, Paddys Oak Arrow JW, that we have retained for ourselves as a broodmare prospect. We are very happy with how she is maturing so far. In 2020 she had a palomino stallion by Walter O Rielly named Galveston Drift JW.
Juniper’s sire is Walter O Rielly aka Radar. He has become a great addition to our program, and this is his 9th foal crop for us. We were looking for a foundation Driftwood bred stallion to hopefully get some replacement fillies out of some of our better mares. Radar is a 90.234% foundation bred perlino stallion who goes to King P-234 ten times, to Driftwood four times with strong doses of Joe Reed, Three Bars and a little Doc Bar. Radar is a 16 hand horse with a huge stride and a gentle personality. He has excellent bone, athleticism and conformation. His lineage tells us that his offspring will have cow and will be capable of performing at any level.
Juniper is a very nice cross of reining lines and foundation. All of Radar’s foals have wonderful dispositions and are BIG horses that can cover some ground out in the open. Her dam’s pedigree tells us she should hopefully be a smooth ride with some nice moves in the arena too no matter what discipline you point her towards. She will be 92% NFQHA and eligible to register. We will be keeping this filly for now but please let us know if you are interested in her.
