Losing a stallion is always a sad and emotional experience whether it is through death or onsale. That was never more true than when Proud to be an Okie (imp) passed away in 2009.
Scott, in partnership with his father, bought the imported Quarter Horse Stallion, Proud to be an Okie, in 2000. Proud To Be An Okie (imp) was one of the very few stallions to sire both NCHA and NRHA Futurity Champions as well as numerous draft winners (eg SB Okie Starlette who placed first at Comet River Futurity Cutting, A Okie Quixote 1995 AQHA Res. High Point Cutting Horse, Strokin’ Okie – 1993 NCHA Futurity Champion, Count on Okie – 1995 Non-Pro Reining Classic Champion) and the only son in Australia of Triple Crown Winner Doc’s Okie Quixote. He was an NCHA Open and Novice winner, the Wagga Futurity Reserve Champion (1988) and has an AQHA Register Of Merit in Cutting and Performance. In short, a successful performer and a joy to own! Adding to his broodmare stock with the best of Proud to be an Okie’s progeny (Okie’s Dutchess, Okies Return, Proud of Okietee, Sonitas Little Okie, Tiffany Oak and Okie’s Princess) Scott has since bred a number of strong performers in the cutting pen including most recently Okie’s Princess (Sire: Proud to be an Okie/Dam: Kings Lawsons Lassie). Okies Princess was broken in and started by Scott himself before being sent to Tamworth to be trained and ridden by Ian Cox, TEXOMA STALLION STATION. Her wins include the Dorrigo Silver Spurs Cutting where on 5 December 2009 she came 1st in the 10000 novice and 3rd in the 3500 novice and on 6 December she came 1st again in the 10000 novice and 2nd in the 3500 novice.
Unfortunately Proud to be an Okie passed away in February 2009 and hence the search for a new stallion began…
