Lady Doc Sequoia aka "Kelly"
|Brittany & Kelly
SOLD! Thank you, Janine!!!
Kelly is a 2005 AQHA bay roan mare with a baby-doll head. She is wonderfully
bred, and is a love to be around. She is out of a cutting-bred stallion, Dry Catalena Cutter (by Catalena Boy: NCHA earnings of $13,000), and
is out of a McKeag bred mare. Catalena Boy is by the famous Doc O'Lena: NCHA earnings of $121,991. Dry Catalena
Cutter's dam is out of Mr. Dry Doc: NCHA earnings of $16,607. Her half brother, Double Luck Olena,
is standing at stud in Missouri. Kelly is 15.0 hands high (measured April, 2009). She was started as a late 2
year old and was very easy to train. Wants to please and be your friend. Not a mean bone in this horse.
She has been used mostly for trail rides, but has been taken to a few different arenas for horse shows and a barrel-racing
clinic. Does fine wherever she is in the group on the trail. She is a very easy-going mare, and
is a joy to ride. Intermediate and beginner riders have done well with her. Stands well for clippers and farrier.
She has been used in barrel racing, pole bending, keyhole, egg & spoon, and other events at shows. Not gate sour
at all - will walk in and out of the gate all day. She is just starting to get the idea of staying in a lope around
the barrel. She knows to lope on the straightaways, but not interested in keeping the speed in the turns or weaving
through the poles. She will stand and watch all the other horses work all day! :) She will occasionally spook,
but she doesn't try to run away, just looks at the object, blows her nose, and skirts around it. She has crossed water,
jumped creeks, been through mud and brush. She puts her head down when asked, is very easy to catch, stands tied well,
and trailers easily.
Due to an unplanned "date" with Cruiser last fall, Kelly foaled a blue roan stud colt 9/1/2009. Such a good mother, and such a gorgeous baby!

4/6/10: We weaned Kelly's colt on March 27. Both are doing great. Rode her a few
times this weekend. Poor girl is out of shape from being a mom, but she'll perk up here soon. Did well on the
lunge line & under saddle. She neck reins pretty well, but every now and again she'll ignore the neck rein if she
would like to go in the other direction. She's pivoting on her hind quarters even better, and stops and backs well.
Her trot is real easy to ride. She lopes, but needs encouragement, as she is rather lazy. Will continue to ride
her as the weather permits. Just needs more miles put on her.
August, 2010: We took Kelly to a horse show and competed in barrels, poles and keyhole with her.
She did great! She actually stayed in a lope around one of the barrels. I was very proud of her.
