Born 5-31-21 “Sagebrush” is a buckskin filly with a small star and doesn’t look like any other white on her. 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, Angel Lace Reed JW, aka Angel, is a foal we raised ourselves and is a very special mare for us as she is named after her wonderful grandmother, BP Princess Lace, who is now deceased after raising her very last foal for us in 2014. Angel is just a fantastic JK Jay Reed daughter out of a Peponita granddaughter. She is moderately sized and nice and thick. We are pretty excited about what she is looking like. We think we see a bit of the Two Eyed Jack coming through from her maternal side. Angel is 94% NFQHA (F0039271). The dam’s sire is our very own JK Jay Reed aka Pine Cone, a 96% foundation bred stallion. The JK Jay Reed horses have a huge amount of ‘cow’. They are very smart, athletic, kind and fast learners. They are the kind of horses that can go any direction from the ranch to trail to show to rodeo. His pedigree speaks for itself and is as foundation bred as they come. Poco Pine, Continental King, Whiskey Bert, Joe Reed II are all on his papers. It is important to note that King P-234 is very close up in his pedigree and he traces to King a total of 6 times! Angel’s first foal was a 2018 bay filly named Paddys Oak Italy JW by Hiline Whiskey. Her 2020 foal was a palomino stud colt named Amarillo Drift JW by Walter O Rielly. This is a full sister to him.
Sagebrush’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.
We fully expect Sagebrush to have size and speed along with athletic ability and cow to be a nice performance horse or ranch horse. She is also 93% foundation eligible with the NFQHA and we will be keeping her for now as a replacement.
