4B Farms Mares
The old timers will tell you that the mare is substantially more important to the genetic make up of the foal than the stallion. For this reason we have made sure that we have excellent bloodlines, excellent conformation and temperament in our mares. A couple of our mares came from bad situations and may not be the prettiest horses anymore, but their breeding is beyond reproach and they are excellent Mommas. All of their pedigrees can be seen on www.allbreedpedigree.com just type in their registered name listed below their picture and you will see a 5 generation pedigree.
Holly is the Grand daughter of Holidoc x Doc Quiote and also of Seven S Baldy x Son O Leo. Wade won Grand Champion in Speed events and Judged events with her at the Sheridan County Fair. She is very catty and loves to work cattle. She is also an excellent mother!
In Memory of Its A Zippy Babe
1992 - 2011
RIP Babe, we miss you! Babe died in November 2011 from a twisted gut. She gave us several beautiful foals in the 6 years we had her. Babe was a Granddaughter of legendary greats Zippo Pine Bar and Jackie Bee. She had got the most amazing moves I have ever seen. She could sit back on her hocks and turn on a dime. Her maternal instinct was unbelievable, in the picture above she is nursing HER SISTER'S foal! How many mares have you ever seen that will let someone else's foal nurse just because it wanted to???? The buckskin colt is Babe's, the sorrel is Copper's, her sister. Copper wasn't as close as Babe so Skipper decided to get a quick meal from Babe!
In Memory of Zippos My Beau
We lost Copper to colic Feb 9, 2010. We will miss her, she gave us some gorgeous stud colts, and they will carry on her excellent lines. Rest in peace old girl.
Belle is the only paint mare we have. She is a Granddaughter of Mecca Jewel x Mecca San Leo and the Midas Touch. She is a phenomenal mother and seems partial to throwing Palomino color!
Jazzy is a grade mare, we are pretty sure she was registered at one time but her paperwork didn't keep up with her. She is another Grand Champion in Speed events and in 2007 Wade rode her to two PERFECT reining scores in 4H. Wade rode her in 4H again in 2008, she took him to state in barrels and won Reserve Grand Championn in Speed Events at the County Fair. For State Fair he started working with her on calf roping, she did well, but unfortunately he missed the calf. In 2009 and 2010 she had a colt by her side so she got to stay home.
Tiff had a tough start in life but she is a really sweet mare. We will be working to get her finished this summer, she has had foals for us the last two years.
Lilly is Babe's 2006 foal. She has a fantastic pedigree as well, her sire is Smooth Sailin Tiger x Topsails Skeets and also has Tiger Leo on the top side with of course Zippo Pine Bar and Jackie Bee on the bottom! She is a big beautiful mare that has a very kind eye and calm disposition. Unfortunately she ruptured her suspensory ligament last fall and although she can walk on it, she will probably never be able to be ridden. We were told by a leg injury specialist to just give her time, she may fully recover from her injury. That would be a blessing because this girl has tons of potential!
Sugar is a Cremello, she will not produce a sorrel, chestnut or bay foal. You are guaranteed color from this mare. She is the daughter of Mr Two Eyed Red Buck x Two Eyed Red Buck x Mr. Baron Red. Sugar suffered a severe injury to her right front foot when she got tangled in barb wire. She litterally removed 1/2 of her hoof. It has grown back but she will only be broodmare sound for the rest of her life but she produces some beautiful babies!
