Texas Holdem High
(All Round Texas X High Falutin)
View Movie of Casi at Nationals
Casi is a 15 hand, flat
muscled filly with a very pretty head. She is sweet natured and loves attention.
She is 86% Appaloosa by blood and an F4, the highest designation of Appaloosa
that you can currently get in Canada. She loves to work cattle, has been over a
few small fences, has done some gymkanas, enjoys to be out on the trail and
doesn't refuse any obstacles. With a bit of practice Casi is ready to take on
her Training Level I and II Dressage tests this spring. She is versatile,
willing and has try. She ground ties, clips, bathes and does pretty much
anything you ask her without hesitation.
Casi's only been shown one
year, 2007. In that year she
started with the Claresholm Super
Circuit. She came first and second in
Yearling Halter and won Grand Champion Mare - all ages. She placed second under
both judges on Sunday behind her sister Lacy and also earned points in lunge
line and in hand trail with only a month of training and conditioning. In July
she went to the ApHC show in Drayton Valley where she came first under all 3
judges in Yearling Fillies and was awarded two Grand Championships and a Reserve
Casi had a great show at the Canadian Nationals that year and proved herself to be very versatile. She won Canadian National Champion in Yearling Lunge Line, went unanimous Canadian National Champion in In Hand Trail and earned Reserve National Champion in F4 Halter and 3rd in Hunter In Hand - Mares.
Casi was at the Appaloosa Congress
which was a dual approved show. She made us proud coming 1st under all 4 judges
in both the ApHC and ApHCC Fillies of 2006 class and winning several Grands and
Reserves. She is now qualified for Worlds in both Yearling Fillies as well as
Lunge Line and has earned enough points to get her ApHC ROM in Halter! She came
2nd under all 4 judges in both ApHCC and ApHC Hunter In Hand mares in a large
class of really nice mares.
The last show of the season was the Thanksgiving show at Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan. Casi won Yearling Fillies and went Grand Champion Junior Mare under both judges. She earned a first and second place in Lunge Line and In Hand Trail class. She also earned 2nd place money at the Saskatchewan Canadian Bred Appaloosa Futurities in a large combined yearlings class of stallions, geldings and fillies.
Overall that year Casi earned 113 points and received the 2007 High Point Awards for Yearling Fillies, Yearling Lunge Line and tied for High Point in Yearling In Hand Trail. She was the top earning CAIF yearling and got a pretty nice cheque for that too!
Her pedigree demonstrates her great potential. Her dam and sire are both Canadian Champions. Her grandsires are both World Champions. Two of her great grandsires have been inducted to the Hall of Fame while the third was a World Champion.

1999 full sister, Salutin
Texas a black roan filly had several months professional reining training
and was considered exceptional. As a result we have moved her into the broodmare
band. She naturally works off her hind end and has the spark necessary for
reining without being too aggressive. Her first filly is in reining training
with Kim Smith.
2001 full sister,Texas
Tornado , a black roan filly was bred to rein or
work a cow. She is sky eyed (not blue eyes, rather eyes with a slight upward
tilt) and would be a 100% color producer, same as a snowcap (her sire All `Round
Texas) or a few spot (dam's sire High Sign Nugget). As a two yr old, Tori was
lunged twice, ponied once and then stepped into the saddle. Tori took everything
in stride with no fussing. We had a nice little wander through the pasture.</>
Tori was confirmed in foal to Rein Dancer SSH for a 2005 foal and was sold to a
stud farm in London, England bordering on the Epping Forest.
Her 2002 full brother, Luke N Back Texas, is a BIG black snowcap stallion prospect who has been sold. His new home is in Texas and his owner's intention is to have him trained in Canada and eventually stand at stud. His first two foals are due in 2006.
2003 full brother,
Austin Texas, is another big black colt with a blanket over his hips who was
sold to Timber Ridge Appaloosas in Spruce Home, Saskatchewan as their herd sire.
Her 2004 full brother, High Tex Solution, is another snowcap stallion who will be starting his training in 2006. He will be standing at stud after his show career is established.
