I have small band of quality brood-mares that have been exposed to Spooks Delta Dude for 2018 including QH own daughters of High Brow Cat, Smart Beckett, Smart Aristocrat & Pepinics Master, as well as an APHA daughter of Color Me Smart & an APHA grand-daughter of Strait from Texas. All but one of my registered Quarter Horse mares are either money-earning producers or money-earners or in some case both.
DO BE COLORD
DO BE COLORD aka “Princess”
I was VERY EXCITED to have added this lovely lady to the broodmare band at Down The FENSKE Cow Horses just in time for breeding season 2016.
APHA cutting/cowhorse breeding at it’s finest, a daughter of the great COLOR ME SMART out of a DUAL PEP/FRECKLES PLAYBOY mare, I could not wait to see the foals she would put on the ground with the one and only, SPOOKS DELTA DUDE! Princess had a really nice COLT in 2017 and if she continues to produce more like "Charles" I am predicting some future champions are in the making!!
Princess was unshown herself due to injury but has some pretty nice offspring that are making it up for her
She had a very nice colt by Spooks Delta Dude in spring of 2017 and is in foal again for 2018.

OMEGA KITTY, also known as Kat joined the broodmare band at Down the FENSKE Cowhorses in February 2012 to produce some quality cowhorse babies when crossed with Spook. She is a sweet-sweet mare who practically floats across the pasture and with the superstar sire High Brow Cat we are expecting her babies to be full of COW and very likely in a fancy colored package as well. So far I have been very impressed with the colts from this cross.
Prior to coming to Saskatchewan, Kat was already a proven producer having produced a non-pro snaffle bit Champion at the Canadian Supreme as well as money earner in reining and cutting so her colts have proven to be versatile already - Kat's colts with Spook should be very versatile & cowy and they've already proven they are smart and good-looking little rascals. Watch for her 2015 gelding "Larry" (aka DFN SPOOKY CAT) in the futurity pen in 2018 - we are VERY excited about this little guy!!

HICKORYS BAND AID
HICKORYS BAND AID fondly knows as Lady is one of only a few own-daughters of Doc's Hickory left around. I am very excited to have added her to the band in spring of 2012 and was not disapointed with her fancy splash-bay stud colt born in May 2013. Lady is getting up in years and is now past her time of having any more babies of her own, but she has earned her place regardless & spends her time out in the broodmare pasture in the summer and babysitting babies in the winter.
Lady was already a producer of cutting and cowhorse money earners we are in the process of adding to that with "Doc" her one and only offspring with Spooks Delta Dude.
Lady’s first and only Spook offspring “DFN SPOOK A DOC” was in cowhorse training with Tyler Darroch and was showing promise as a cowhorse early in his 3 yr old year however a pasture injury to his eye resulted in a major surgery mid-summer 2016 and some significant time off to recover. After returning to training in early 2017 Doc entered the show-pen for the first time early that summer and ended up making the trip with us to APHA WORLD show in fall of 2017. He had a very respectable showing for his experience level and ended up coming home with top-5 ribbons in all 4 of his classes.
Doc will be showing again in Sask Reined Cow Horse events in 2018 and may possibly be offered for sale in the future.
THANK-YOU very much Susan Echlin for allowing me the opportunity to breed Lady to Spook.
Elphabelena, also known as Ella was added to the broodmare band at Down the FENSKE Cow Horses in Feb 2015, and we are very excited with the offspring she has been producing when crossed with Spook. A daughter of Smart Aristocrat out of a Doc O’Lena daughter we’re expecting to find some awesome cow smarts and athleticism in the foals from this cross.
Ella comes to me from Jesse & Elyse Thompson in Alberta and was originally from Slate River Ranch in Texas. She was shown as a cutter, earning approx $5000 and has earned her Open & Amateur Performance Register of Merit and since then has produced offspring with earnings of approx $55,000 in NCHA.
Ella had her first Spooks Delta Dude foal in May 2016. A very sweet and very fancy FILLY who I have decided to KEEP for myself !! Bella has just recently started training (March 2018) and is showing good promise so far.
Ella's second foal with Spook was a fancy and strong colt. "Elvis" can be found on the sale-page

MAGNIFICENT STING (aka "Maggie")
Maggie joined the broodmare band in 2015 just in time for breeding season and had her first foal sired by Spooks Delta Dude in May 2016. "Pretty" is not a strong enough word to describe Maggie & her personality is a nice as her looks.
Maggie boasts an impressive show record having NRCHA earnings in the neighborhood of $25K so we expect her offspring to have some talent and some "cow"
I am VERY excited to see what she continues to produce with Spook. So far she has produced two VERY nice fillies and we are excited to see where they are headed in the future! Maggie's 2017 filly (fancy sorrel tovero) sold at only a few days of age to a repeat-buyer in Alberta. Her bay-splash 2016 filly is still available and is currently being offered for sale.
Maggie's DNA work is 5 Panel N/N meaning that ALL of her offspring with Spook will also all be 5 panel NEG
thank-you again to Susan Echlin for helping me to add such a nice mare to my quality herd.
SMART LIL KIT - aka "Skittles" AQHA #5383326
Skittles arrived at the ranch in fall of 2015 and joined the broodmare band in the breeding pasture in spring of 2016
A cute little mare with some rabacino markings and ALTHLETIC written all over her, she seems to just bounce around the pasture, with what I think I'd describe as intensity at all times. With a pretty impressive pedigree that is "cow" through and through, we can't wait to see what her babies look like and even more excited to see how they work!
Skittles first foal was a VERY FANCY Bay SPLASH COLT who had everybody who saw him drooling right from day one!! "Chrome" (DFN GOTTALOTTA CHROME) was recently sold to a great show-home in Pennsylvania USA & we can't wait to see him burning up the show circuit down there !!
Skittles was exposed to Spook and is once again in foal for spring 2018
Thanks to Ken Anderson for the opportunity to add this cute mare to my herd
REIN DANCIN STRAIT
REIN DANCIN STRAIT, better known as Rein, is a special sweetheart of a mare. Born and raised on the ranch, the first foal out of the first foal ever raised on the ranch, she holds a special place but has a lovely temperament to go along with it. A wonderful mother, she has raised a few nice "Spook" foals in the last number of years.
As a grand-daughter of the great Strait from Texas we are expecting some cow-horses from this cross for sure!
Rein is tested To/To (homozygous) for Tobiano so when crossed with Spook we usually get a lot of white or some pretty funky combinations of color.
There has been some questions as to the OLWS status of some of Rein’s foals. Rein has officially been tested OLWS N/N so combining that info with Spook’s N/N status means that ALL of Rein’s offspring with Spook will also be guaranteed OLWS N/N no matter HOW much white they are showing!!
Rein's foals so far have proven to be very nice minded, trainable and easy to work with and I am expecting nothing less in her future foals also.
REIN has been DNA TESTED N/N on ALL 5 of the genetic diseases on the 5 panel test and is also confirmed OLWS (Overo Lethal White) N/N
Rein is once again in foal for spring 2018 with Spook as sire

Pippi is an unregistered mare but don’t let that make you think that her pedigree is unworthy. She is out of an unregistered daughter of Doc O’Lena and is sired by the great Pepinics Master. Unfamiliar with the total reason for lack of papers, I do believe in the potential of this mare. Pippi has had full siblings do well in the cow-horse and ranch-horse arenas & she was in training and on her way, almost ready to be shown when a pasture injury sidelined her show career, but I do believe that she is producing some awesome foals regardless of the fact that they do not carry “papers”. Now that a few of her foals have reached riding age I think I can say that the quality is there and we're definitely seeing offspring with not only the potential of becoming some good using ranch horses, but also quite possibly show-horses as well.
When bred to Spooks Delta Dude, Pippi's foals do quality for paperwork with the Pinto Horse Association for identification/pedigree purposes.
Pippi was once again bred to Spook & will foal late-May or early June 2018
LUCKYDEE TEENA is the matriarch of the broodmare band. My first broodmare, she has raised me some awesome working ranch horses. The first horse I showed in Reined Cow Horse competition was a son of Teena’s and he was a very good horse to learn on and was forgiving through lots of mistakes! She has produced many nice-minded working & family type geldings.
Teena's foals have been in good demand and have been selling quickly - her 2015 filly sold at less than 2 weeks of age!! I think it's fair to say that buyers so far have not been disappointed as it seems that all I'm getting is good reports back from happy new owners. Teena's 2014 filly sired by Spook is currently in reining-training in AB and her owner loves her so much she not only sent a good mare out to breed last spring but also picked another filly out of my 2017 foal crop!
Unfortunately Teena checked back open for 2017 but is definitely in foal again for 2018 and should foal later in April
