JBJ's Sweet Art Kidd

February 2013
JBJ's Sweet Art Kidd

The 2012 season ended on a very high note with our yearling filly "Maddie'', JBJ's Sweet Art Kidd. Maddie earned 546 National points, earning the title of Year End High point yearling filly and her ROM. It was a long show season for us, starting with the dry unbearable heat and ending with freezin for a reason. We want to send a big Thank You to Jackie and Nicole for giving us the opportunity to purchase Maddie back in 2011. Last fall Linzy purchased a weanling colt from the Strunk & Webel breeding program, Illini Leo. Linzy and Leo received Reserve Grand Champion Stallion at the Color Breed Congress and Circuit Grand Champion Stallion at the Wisconsin sponsored Thanksgiving shows in Sterling. We are excited to see what they will accomplish this show season.

We stand POA stallion Tribute to Hollywood. Hollywood has his ROM in halter and was number 1 in the Nation as a Two year old. He stands 53 inches and is a buckskin few spot leopard. DNA tested Homozygous and high percentage dun factor producer. Hollywood has produced winners including International futurity champion, Handsome Hollywood Star. He produced a great group of foals for us in 2012 and we are excited to get the 2013 foaling season under way next month. Hollywood is Select Sire Nominated! We recently had the opportunity to purchase MM Mags Son of A Gun from Maple Meadows POA's. He has proven himself in the show ring, bringing home the title of Grand Champion Stallion in 2010 at the International Show (aka National Congress). Bruiser is a beautiful bay and white blanketed stallion, standing 55." He will be standing to a limited number of mares this year, and is also Select Sire Nominated!

Our farm is located on 85 acres in Huntington, Indiana. Along with POA's we raise miniature donkeys, miniature horses, miniature Hereford cattle, and Grant Zebras. We have had POA's on our farm for about 17 years now. We have put together an outstanding band of broodmares from some of the top breeders in the industry. Z Animal Crossing is home to World, National, International, and Regional Champions. There are always POA's available for sale, ranging from weanlings to broke ponies.

We would like to thank the friends and families that helped us during the 2012 season. Thanks to all the new friends that we made, the great conversations and all that made us laugh over the past year! We are lucky to belong to such a great organization!
