The Ladies of Carter Acres
Here are the producing broodmares of Carter Acres.
Click on photos for individual pedigrees and progeny.
Sangria is a young mare that promises to be very productive. Sangria was purchased from the Lee Elliott ranch in Wyoming. Sangria's first foal, CA Morganite is in training with Fullmer Performance Horses in Idaho and they love her!
Peanuts, as Jewel is more commonly called, is the spitting image of her mother, Karat. Based on her first foal this year, she's going to be a stellar producer as well. She did a tremendous job raising him and he was so quiet a little 5 year old was leading him around a week after weaning.
Without a doubt one of the prettiest fillies we've ever raised. She injured her shoulder as a foal and after a host of vet work, massage, MagnaWave, and chiropractor visits, we have determined she has too much scar tissue to ride. However, she is a gorgeous mare with a pedigree to produce some outstanding versatility prospects.
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. Now owned by our son, Quincy.
Aspen as this young mare is affectionately called is a stocky, beautiful mare. She was a bit of a challenge to start, largely because we made some pretty big mistakes with her training. She has since come around but if you're going to ride her, you better be dang handy in the saddle or you won't stay on!
Spice is a gorgeous young mare that is proving herself as a broodmare. She has raised two blue roan stud colts and a blue filly for us so far and has done a wonderful job. Stellar foundation breeding in a complete package; she will produce riders!
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. Lexus produced a beautiful red roan filly in 2021 and did an exceptional job raising her; she will be a standout broodmare.
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. A favorite of some friends in Minnesota who own 3 daughters!
Champagne is one of the quietest mares on the place and is proving herself in the broodmare pen. We're excited to see what her 2021 daughter CA Piper will do in the Ranch Horse Extravaganza; she's gorgeous and such a honey!
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 and we retained her 2021 colt for futurity purposes!
Kitty is the result of pairing our best producing broodmare with Cat Smart Boonsmal. She was supposed to be blue...but she's pretty fancy regardless. She placed 12th in a yearling futurity in a class of 47 and with limited riding is quiet enough for most anyone. We can't wait to see her foals.
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 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.
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 and her 2021 buckskin colt went to Missouri.
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 has produced a sale topper.
