Heart-J Lady was born on May 12, 2007 the morning of the services held for Mayme Jessup who had passed away January 9th. All the Jessup family and friends were there to honor the memory of Mayme and her beloved Maurice, who’s services were held on May 12, 1993.
It was a beautiful bright sunny morning and I came out early to see if Sun Sails had foaled. There she was, a beautiful little palomino filly, peeking out from behind her mother. She had long straight legs and large dark eyes fringed with beautiful white eyelashes. She was very shy just like her two sisters before her. Right away I thought we should name her “Heart-J Lady” in honor of Mayme Jessup. Mayme was known as the Heart in the Heart-J brand.
Heart-J Lady’s bloodlines trace back to three of Sylvan Dale’s best sires, Sparkie Y Sweet, Baronet Bar, and Thirsty’s Sandy. Her mother “Sun Sails” carries the blood of many famous cow horses. Heart-J Lady has two full sisters, “Foxy Trail West,” and “Silky Trail West,” both are beautiful palominos. There is one baby brother, a sorrel named “Gold Dust Rustler.”
I really enjoyed halter training and doing the kids program with Heart-J Lady as she is kind, willing and likes attention. Our trainer Barry McAleenan completed Heart-J Lady’s training and has turned her over to the wranglers to finish her trail training before our guests begin riding her.
She is a smart sensitive horse who should be great at trails and cattle work. Guests should be riding her sometime in 2013.
