Over the years, we have built a set of broodmares we are truly proud of.
This is Western Sweets, a Western Bugs daughter out of a daughter of Valid Appeal TB. She is one of TWO Paint Valid Appeal g-daughters in existence,,,,We were so fortunate in having leased a beautiful daughter of Valid Appeal who raised two Paint daughters for us. Years after Valid Appeal’s death, his name still graced the ”Leading Broodmare Sires” list. This mare is a great example of Western Bugs genetics,,,,,,,she’s tall, about 16 hands, correct, and a beautiful mover….and an outstanding producer. Her promising performance career ended when she was kicked in the shoulder by another horse. However, her value in the broodmare band is quite obvious. Her 2009 filly Basically Sweet, by Basic Black Spruce, is shown here. Basically Sweet lives in Arizona,,,,,,where she’s shown in English events by the youngsters in the family, trail ridden in the desert by her owner, and is used also as a polo pony!
