2006 AQHA Bay, Mare, 16.1

Registered Name: KR Robin Be Quick

Barn Name: Cassie


Cassie is a very well built with conformation that truly represents correct balance, substance and power! Beyond well bred with a pedigree of all generations packed with big time performing producers. Best of all she is as solid minded as they come.

She has a nice big ground covering stride however also has the nicest jog naturally you could ask for and has no problem brining it together and going slow and pretty, and also has a very nice extended trot for hunter type movement, and of course loves stretching out and moving and chasing some cans quite effortlessly. Being so good minded and natural in a variety of movement she should produce great all-around show prospects as well as speed performance prospects. She was in professional barrel training as a 4 year old and was futurity bound as a 5 year old until she was injured and needed to be put on long term rest. She is proving to be a great cross with SBR Formula One for extremely versatile prospects! In 2013 she produced a handsome dun colt with a balze and 3 high socks currenlty in pro training for all-around, and in 2014 she produced as super speed prospect that is owned by a gal that WILL be barrel rcing her in futurities, derbys and rodeo come time. She is back in-foal for 2015 and foal will be availble for purchase.
