Joaker sold at the 39th Annual Lopez, Meyer & Lauing Quarter Horse Production Sale as a weanling. As a foal he was born palomino colored with blue eyes and distinctive white markings.
We purchased Joaker in 2021 after losing our stallion, RD Bet Hesa Catari, in 2020. Joaker is able to be pastured with other stallions and geldings. He’s also been used as a babysitter for yearlings. His previous owners had nothing but good things to say about Joaker’s personality and disposition.
We have color tested Joaker and with his results, Joaker will always produce a palomino or buckskin depending on what he is bred to. He will never produce a smokey black. He also has a 50% chance of giving his offspring a copy of splash (SW1) or Gray (G).
In the summer of 2022 we were contacted by someone who owns a maternal half brother to Joaker and we learned that he was currently in training for barrel racing. They said he was working very well with his trainer.
We have spent a lot of time with Joaker over the last few years and we are very impressed with him. He is very intelligent and respectful. He does an amazing job as a stallion. He is great with the foals, even those who are by other stallions. He is great with the mares, keeping them in line, looking out for them in the pasture, his breed up rate is impeccable. The foals themselves are impressive, they have great body, great bone, very inquisitive but respectful. Joaker was not started under saddle before coming to us in 2021.
