Captain Handy                                                            RETIRED

AQHA 4278622

2002 Grullo Stallion

Watch Josey Tyree x Frontier Hand

"Jack" is a 93% FQHA registered stallion. He is 15.1-15.2 hands and weighs around 1100 lbs. Jack has big black hooves, big hip, big shoulder and a big presence. We were drawn to Jack because of his size, disposition and breeding. His kind eye is also something we love about him. Jack loves to greet you wherever you are for a good scratch. 


Jack is 6th descendant of the King Ranch's foundation sire, Ole Sorrel going back to him an estimated 7x. Hired Hand is only 2x off Jack's papers which is very exciting. We are huge fans of the King Ranch program!


His top side also carries speed through Boston Mac. Boston Mac had a great disposition and produced very versatile foals. This is taken 

Jack's bottom side has Watch Joe Jack on his papers. Watch Joe Jack was one of the top earning sons of Two Eyed Jack. Pitzer Ranch website quotes' Two Eyed Jack is one of the greatest broodmare sires. His daughters have not only been a dominant part of the Pitzer Ranch Program, but a big influence for both halter and performance breeders. Great bodies, correct legs, huge hearts and that little "Watch Joe" head and ear have made his genetics greatly sought after."  Watch Joe Jack was an AQHA earner in halter, reining, heeling, heading, and western pleasure. If you can't tell by now, we like Watch Joe Jack!

from Oklahoma Quarter Horse Association website, " He was the fastest qualifier in the 1970 All American trials earning a top triple AAA rating in the process. He amassed 43 first place awards in the 43 times he was shown, placing Grand Champion 35 times and Reserve Grand Champion 8 times at some of the country’s most prestigious horse shows. Frank broke him to a stock saddle and started riding him at horse shows, which resulted in his earning an ROM and becoming an AQHA Champion. At that point Wells and Merrill started a breeding program and bred him to 132 mares. This first year Boston Mac’s foals were eligible to show, his prodigy caused him to be listed in the AQHA Leading Sires of halter winners, and soon as they started being shown in performance classes, Boston Mac was in the list of AQHA leading performance sires. Boston Mac sired 137 open halter point earners, earning 2048.5 points and 207 performance point earners who earned 6067 points. He sired AQHA Champions, World Champions, AQHA High Point Champions in both halter and performance and running horses earning approximately $100,000. Boston Mac earned the distinction of Leading Maternal Grandsire in both halter and performance with 1434 foals. Boston Mac was inducted into the Oklahoma Quarter Horse Hall of Fame in 2011." 

Captain Handy also goes to the great Oklahoma Star who was born in the Oklahoma Panhandle where Jamie is from. Just a neat little fact. This is taken from the Oklahoma Quarter Horse Association website, "Known as “that Tommy Moore horse,” Oklahoma Star earned a reputation as a formidable running horse and an influential sire. Foaled in the Oklahoma Panhandle in 1915, Oklahoma Star was also used as a breeding stallion.  Moore would breed the stallion hours before racing, but it never affected the bay’s performance.  The quality of mares ranged from race mares to Indian mares to buggy mares.  Regardless, Oklahoma Star always sired nice foals. In the early 1930s and one owner later, Ronald Mason, owner of the Cross J near Nowata, Oklahoma, bought Oklahoma Star.  The move allowed

Oklahoma Star to breed higher quality mares. During the years spent at Mason’s ranch, Oklahoma Star excelled as a sire.  He earned a reputation as a sire of broodmares and roping horses. From the mid-1930’s through the mid-1950s, Oklahoma Star was the undisputed premier sire of roping horses.  Ropers Bob Crosby, Buddy May, Ike Rude, the Goodspeed brothers and others roped from Oklahoma Star horses.  A couple of the more noted roping horses were Baldy Boy and “Buster.” Some of Oklahoma Star’s more  renowned sons were Congress Star, Starway, Osage Star, Nowata Star, Oklahoma Star Jr and Sizzler. In the late 1930s, Robert Denhardt visited Mason’s ranch to see Oklahoma Star.  Not long after the founding of AQHA, the stallion received the registration No. P-6, distinguishing him as one of the breed’s foundation sires. The stallion died in 1943 at 28.  He was inducted into the American Quarter Horse Hall of Fame in 1992 and the Oklahoma Quarter Horse Hall of Fame in 2005."


Captain Handy also traces back to Leo, King, Wimpy, and Blackburn all great foundation horses!

Jack is going to add size, bone, great dispositions, speed and hopefully versatility to his offspring, not to mention color! Jack is homozygous dun, which means he can only produce duns. Our goal with Jack is to retain a couple replacements for ourselves and offer his other offspring as ranch, rope and rodeo prospects. His first foal crop for us came in 2020 with 1 red dun colt whom we are retaining.  He had 3 foals in 2021. He finished the 2022 season with 3 foals (2 red dun fillies and 1 dun stallion). He has bred 3 mares for 2023 season and this will be his last. We have retired Jack after the 2022 breeding season.


Joes Okie Blue                                                                                           DECEASED

1996 Gray Stallion

OX Shesa Pie Too x Watch Bobby Joe

"Okie" was owned by Steve Robinson. We bred to him during the 2016, 2017 and 2018 breeding seasons. He is a beautiful grandson of Watch Joe Jack. Watch Joe Jack was one of the top earning sons of Two Eyed Jack. He was a great broodmare sire and had the look and bone to be versatile enough to go from halter to roping. Okie is 96% FQHA registered passing on great foundation genetics to his offspring. Okie's foals have gone on to excel as ranch horses, rope horses, barrel horses and even a couple halter horses. His foals all have speed, athleticism and great dispositions.
