Here are the producing broodmares of Carter Acres.
Click on photos for individual pedigrees and progeny. Mares for sale are listed first.
Sangria(10) cropped.jpg
Sangria is a young mare that promises to be very productive. She beautifully raised a palomino roan filly in 2019 that is going to make someone very happy! Sangria was purchased from the Lee Elliott ranch in Wyoming. She is only FOR SALE due to downsizing. 
    Remi is a young mare with a stellar pedigree. Crossed on Skye for 2021, we should have the makings of an athlete! 
 We raised Neely. She has the legendary sire, Shining Spark on her pedigree coupled with a solid foundation ranch using horses on her dam's side. She is slightly smaller than our ideal broodmare at 14.1 so she is FOR SALE.  ​
 Lady Collins is a big, beautiful dun broodmare. She has some legendary cow horses in her pedigree. She is young and has her whole life in front of her but since we're downsizing, she is FOR SALE. She was injured in wire and has scars on her back legs, but gets around fine.
BiscayneBay (1) Sz 500.jpg
Biscuit is one of the sweetest mares on the place. She is out of one of the greatest producers at the Lazy JS Ranch in Bowman, ND and has notable greats, Collins Jessie and Jessie Tivio on her papers. Less notable to most, she has Hayden Wano, Tondalayo Two and LJSR Chianti on her dam's side,  three of the all-time favorites at the Lazy JS. She is promising to be an exceptional broodmare. 
    Spice raised her first foal this past summer and did a wonderful job. Can't wait to see what her cross on Skye will look like in 2021!
   JoJo has been our most productive daughter of Queen Jessamun. She has never missed foaling and frequently has the high seller. Her colts have gone as far west as Idaho and as far east as Maryland. We also have two daughters (full sisters) in our broodmare band. 
   We found Lexus in the Kist sale in Mandan; her mother originated at the Lazy JS Ranch and traces back to some early Stearns breeding....horses that have excelled in the rodeo arena for years. Super excited to see what a cross on Skye will look like in 2021. 
We purchased Miah from a reputable breeder in Iowa. She is the daughter of Working Cowhorse Champion, Fuel n Shine and out of a Lazy JS Ranch mare. Performance and foundation at its finest.
Champagne is one of the quietest mares on the place and is proving herself in the broodmare pen. She got very sick last summer so didn't breed back. Therefore, she will take a this year off and hopefully see some good riding time. 
   Everyone loves Scoria. She is the first choice for anyone who doesn't ride much and she takes care of them well. She can "flip a switch" so to speak, though, and get a day's work done when more agility and athleticism is needed. CA Champagne is a daughter. 
We found Duchess at the Twin Cities Horse Sale but we had seen her as the gorgeous foal she was out of our beloved Queenie mare. We picked her up and it turned out to be a good decision as she raised one of the top sellers in 2020! 
Brown Eyes 2014.jpg
    Brown Eyes was purchased from a reputable breeder in Iowa, out of a daughter from Nada's home ranch. She is one of the few daughters of Black n Shiney, a son of Shining Spark that was lost way too soon. 
Karat (11) Sz 500.jpg
   If there was a contest for the most beautiful mare, Karat would win. Faultless conformation and a talented athlete, this mare is proving to be a wonderful broodmare as well. She was used for a training clinic as a 3-year old and behaved better than many of the seasoned horses there!
   One of only three Fancy Cut Diamonds daughters on the place, Vixie has proven an exceptional broodmare, outproducing herself. She was kind and quiet enough for our teenage daughter to start for a 4-H youth training project that advanced to the MN State Fair.
Sapphire 2014.jpg
    Sapphire is the only daughter of Diamond and has a special place in our hearts. The night Sapphire was born, Nada woke bolt upright in bed. Seeing nothing wrong, she went back to bed only to be awoken again. She checked the barn and Sapphire had been born but hadn't nursed....she was mad as a little hornet. God gave us just what we ordered. He is Good.
Sleepy Hickory Sug.JPG
   Our sage advisor told us to buy some of the best. We ran across this beauty at a consignment sale and had to bring her home. Quiet and kind, Navajo has been used for our son as a 4-H youth halter project. She did an exceptional job raising her first foal in 2020 by CA Skye Blue; a drop-dead gorgeous buttermilk buckskin colt that we kept to grow up.
    Pip Squeak is an absolutely gorgeous broodmare. Keen headed with big doe eyes and a HUGE barrel, she is a powerhouse! If she can't raise a team roping horse, nothing will! 
   Pippa is proving to be a tremendous broodmare, just like her mother, JoJos Valley Queen. Big and powerful....ropers should take a look at her foals! 
   Marquee, though not our prettiest mare to look at, is a tremendous producer. She is the mother of our blue roan stallion, Skye and replacement filly, CA Halo, that is listed for sale. They are both stunning individuals.
