Wades Sugar Bar Quarter Horse

There's her lines, here's some pics... they're not great, forewarning.

This mare belongs to a friend of mine, and I don't know enough about her lineage to really make an assumption as to why she was bred...

But Mary wants to know a little more about her. I found Advocator and his sire's a pretty big deal, just wondered if there was something closer to her that would be worth getting excited over? Two Eyed Jack of course, too, Watch Joe Jack... just wasn't sure about the rest.

These are all the pics I have of her...

I like big horses like her. I don't know any of the horses in the first two generations but she has a lot of good breeding further back. She's big and kind of plain looking (but so am I) but she has nice big feet and I"ll bet she can run when she wants to.

Thanks Kevin!

Oh man, Mary brought her to us because all she did was run! Every time you pass a gate she practically jumps through it. Chris has really worked hard with her this last month. And I think she's about 15.2. She's not overly tall, but plenty bigger than the cutters we've been circulating lately! ; )

I looked up as much as I could all day long now, and all I found was running blood... I guess that's what she's good for, lol.

She is beautiful, I can't critique, but I just wanted to tell you she is very pretty.

She looks a lot like the pair of Watch Joe Jack brothers that we used to have. Agree with Kevin, she has got some marvelous solid lines back a ways. She is a good looking mare and I don't know about her but all the Two Eyed Jack horses I have ever seen or messed with had the most amazing temperments.

She's a doll on the ground, she doesn't stand over you, or breathe down your neck, but on her back she just wants to move, Move, MOVE! All the time! She's got a good mind, and she tries hard to listen, I just think that whoever broke her really pounded on her because she can be over-willing... she will respond, but over-respond, you know? Like she doesn't know what you're asking, and she's trying to figure it out FAST FAST FAST! It's really taken a lot to get that out of her head, and she still does it quite a bit, I'm just hoping Mary can keep her on the right track and push her to be better! She would be absolutely wonderful for me, but I have quite a bit more experience than Mary. (Yes, this is the gal that I didn't want to end up being the free trainer, that I thought the horse was too much for...) Mary just doesn't know when to tell when Penny is giving her attitude or not! So getting her legs slammed into gates, her feet dragged along the fence, her shoulder rubbed on, toes stepped on, etc. She thinks it's all by accident.

I told her she's welcome to come up any time while Penny is here for training... so far it's been twice this month. She's in nursing school, and 1.5 hrs away with 5 kids, 2 handicapped, so it really hasn't been as big of a deal as I made it out to be in the first place.

But Penny would be a great little project mare, period. For sure. I just thought that maybe the last couple generations have really just been bred due to their lineage, not for performance. But I wasn't sure if maybe one was some kind of champion barrel racer or something.
