AHH MAZING "Macy" 2006 buckskin mare. I purchased Macy in 2013 after being very impressed with her talent. She came to me on consignment as a 6yo. She had been through several owners according to AQHA and I was waiting for something to be "wrong" with her. She has since gone from 4D to solid 2D, even 1D at many shows, to placing/winning at WPRA and other rodeos. She has become a barn favorite and is a life long resident at Magnolia Farm. She is a money earner at WPRA, IPRA, and SPRA rodeos. Shown below is a video of us winning the WPRA rodeo in Lauderdale, MS and our latest run on the right.
High Rollin EZ Jetta "Jetta" 2013 AQHA sorrel mare. Jetta came to me as a late yearling to start under saddle. We put 45 days on her and she went home to grow. We got her back in February 2016 to start on the pattern. During the time she was in training she was also listed for sale. It came time for her to go home and I had a different feeling about letting her leave. I have many many horses come and go at our farm and I try to not get attached. I had a feeling about Jetta so I purchased her for myself with the idea of trying my hand at futurities if the time was right. Jetta has progressed very well and she is very solid and sound. She competed at the BFA in Oklahoma City, OK in December 2016 and gave me two solid 3D runs. Unfortunately, we lost Jetta in August 2017. In her short barrel racing career she never hit a barrel. She was going to be awesome in my opinion.
A SHARPER CARDINALE 2007 APHA mare. Sharpie is out of my 6x World Champion mare, Victoria Cardinale. Sharpie is 100% try. She has a late start due to her small size but she caught up quick. She's very quick on her feet and is very good at tracking a cow (bull) in an open pasture. In 2016 her reins were handed over to my 6yo son, Gage. He and his pony were doing well but I thought he needed a little more horse power in the barrel pen so they became a team. Within a few months they were placing in ALBRA and MSLBRA competition and by the end of 2016. Gage & Sharpie are 2016 & 2017 APHA Dixie National Youth Barrel champs. Sharpie won 6 World titles at the 2018 APHA World Show and is a NLBRA World Champion Pole Bender!! She finished 3rd in the World in 2019 NLBRA Pole Bending! She has a permanent stall at Magnolia Farm and I'm looking forward to breeding her in the future.
SAM CARDINALE 2006 solid sorrel APHA gelding. Sam is also out of my mare, Victoria Cardinale. Sam had a rough start with having colic surgery as a weanling. Physically, the surgery set him back a year or so but you can't tell that now. He stayed a stud until age 5 but after becoming aggressive he needed to be gelded. He started his barrel racing career as a 6yo in 2012. He's solid and honest just like his mother and older 1/2 sister, DJ. He's not very fast but can find another gear when asked. Sam is suitable for most anyone to ride so he's used as a lesson horse to earn his keep. If I'm not mistaken, 5 different riders earned money on him in 2016. His reins have also been turned over to Gage!! Gage has proven to be the perfect jockey for him! They are the 2018 SPB Barrel Racing World Champion, NLBRA short go/average placer at the NLBRA Finals in Flags in 2018 & 2019!
