Daltons Queen Chic

1996 black granddaughter of Peponita

Chic has seasonal brindle striping. The photo on the right was taken with the camera flash on.

Chic being brushed with no halter or leadrope while eating (2008).
She loves a good brushing, and is no longer afraid of people.
She is, however, hard to catch without grain.

Offered for Sale!

We are offering Chic for sale because we feel she would be best placed where she would be live covered (we want to only collect and AI our mares). In 2008, we did put her with a stallion to pasture breed, but we don't want to do that in the future. She would probably be fine to AI, but since I collect and breed ALONE without help, I prefer to not AI Chic.

bulletAQHA Granddaughter of Peponita, NCHA Hall of Fame and World Champion cutting horse.
bulletChic is probably around 15 hh.
bullet12 out of the 14 horses on her papers earned points and/or won money!
bulletChic HAS been DNA tested and verified by AQHA's testing lab.
bulletBefore we bought her, Chic was used to raise Paints. Click here to see her APHA offspring records. She has also had at least one black and white APHA foal after this report (2004).
bulletStands tied, has had a leg hosed that had a cut.  Smart mare who just needed a chance to prove she was a good one.
bulletChic has never pulled back when we've tied her, so she can be live covered when tied.  We've also pasture bred her.

Scar on right front heel (see photos) and a scar on a forearm that is haired over.


This mare is a nice combination of speed and cow breeding, and she shows it!  It is a darned shame that she was never broke and used, because she is incredibly athletic.


Chic has done an amazing amount of growth in trusting humans in the last couple years. I can climb over the fence right next to her while she eats and brush/pet her without a halter/leadrope on. I've never tried to pick up her hooves.  She likes to be brushed, but I just don't think she's 100% confident with people yet.

bulletHalter broke and loads in a trailer easily, but has mainly not been handled much in her life. Likes to be petted, but was scared of people unless they moved slowly and won her trust when we bought her.  Now, she always wears a sweet expression (I swear...a different mare than when she came!) but is still hard to catch without feed. 
bulletI can rub all over her head and face, and brush her whole body.  I've never picked up her feet or brushed her tail, but she would probably accept it if I went slowly.  Update, 2008: Chic now lets me catch her without grain sometimes, even loose in the pasture. She probably would not do this for just anyone, as she has learned to trust me. But if her new owner gained her trust, I am sure Chic would enjoy a new friend.

Note:  Chic gets VERY thin around foaling time and during nursing. 


Because Chic is hard to catch, we will not sell her to an overseas home.

Hours after foaling in 2008 on grass hay and oat diet. She is nice and fat until she is nursing a foal.

This is how thin Chic can get while nursing. The more grain we give her, the thinner she seems to get.

Chic is chipper, happy, energetic, and just acts like she feels wonderful!  She was on an alfalfa/grass mix hay and no grain in the winter, and stays  fat and healthy looking all winter.  The rest of the year, she is on a plain grass pasture or mostly grass hay. It's just when she is nursing a foal that she drops the weight so badly. However, a month or two after weaning, she is again slick and rapidly returning to or at her normal weight.
