Congratulations to Ann Livingston of Dripping Springs, TX on the purchase of our beautiful baby.  We are so excited that this special horse will be living just down the road and has the best home EVER!  

  • Enrolled in the ApPHA Mare Incentive Program

  • Enrolled in the ApHC Breeder's Trust
  • Nominated for the Just For Pleasure

This colt was scheduled to be our Junior Stallion from the day he was born.  Unfortunately, nature wasn't on our side.  Jack Jr's second testicle never descended and was deep in his abdomen.  He was successfully gelded on 20 Nov 2006.  He is offered for sale only because we have no real need for a 17 hand gelding on a breeding farm.

His sire, All Hands on Zip is one of the leading Huntseat horses in the Appaloosa industry. He has proven his ability in the show ring year after year in a variety of events. His crowning achievements are his World Champion wins in Junior Hunter Under Saddle.

This colt's dam, Super Swankie, is a 16 hand, Incentive Fund registered AQHA mare. She is by Super Star and a granddaughter of both Sierra Te and Skipa Star. Though she has not been shown out on the QH circuit, she competed and won in classes at the Texas A&M Horse Center Show in Hunter Under Saddle and Showmanship. She is a big, beautiful moving mare, with a long stride and slow legs.  She is a very elegant and pretty mare.

Jack Junior is one of the top huntseat prospects in the industry. He will be tall -- approaching 17 hands, or more. Powerful mover with a great future in the show ring.  He has points in Hunter In Hand as a stallion and we will continue to show him this coming year as a gelding.  He has competed at the National and World Show as a yearling colt, placing 3rd and 7th.
