We keep a few really great horses around for our breeding program.
Ima Cowledge Star
2002 AQHA Chestnut Mare, 14.1
This is my BIG horse in a little package! She is all power, but so solid minded she can ride our 2 year old daughter and the two truly adore each other. Solid NBHA Jackpot Barrel Racing and Pole Bending, money earner, fantastic cattle sorting mare and AAA gymkhana high point earner. Daughter of Ben To Cowledge (NCHA money earner by High Brow Hickory by Doc's Hickory), and out of Tamulena Ladystar a NCHA and NBHA money earning daughter of Tamulena by Doc O'lena on bottom. Star is a very quick and talented barrel racing mare and pretty good at pole bending too.
Star has foaled several SBR Formula One foals and the cross has proven to be very athletic and trainable.

2013 APHA Dun Roan Overo Mare, 15.2h
Donkey as we affectionally refer to her name as...no she doesn't look or act like a Donkey but she looked a bit like one when she was foaled LOL and so the joking name did stick. She is one of the most magnificent fillies by SBR Formula One and we feel privileged to have her. As a yearling she earned APHA points in In-Hand Trail, won many 1st-3rd places in Halter, Showmanship and In-Hand Trail at APHA and local open shows. At 2-4 years old she earned many year-end high point and reserve high point awards. Our future plans for her are big, she is a special girl with a lot of talent and will to work. She has sat a bit due to me having 2 kids so no fault of her own. My focus will be to make her a truly BROKE and TRAINED all-around performance horse now in her mature years and will include ranch horse classes, speed events and many others. Super excited for the future with this girl!
To be bred to Shootin For Chics in 2020 for a 2021 foal (photos below and owned by Hardin Ranch Performance Horses).
