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. He has two small foal crops from before we purchased him on the ground, his first foal crop is just old enough to be started under saddle. He is performance bred and should make excellent barrel, ranch and rope prospects.

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. Having finished up our first breeding season with Joaker in 2021 we are impressed with him so far. He was a very respectful stallion and it was easy to handle him with the mares. He was not started under saddle before coming to us. We decided to sent him to a trainer for 60 days in the fall of 2021 and not much progress was made due to his age. In the summer of 2022 we were contacted by someone who owns a maternal half brother to Joaker and we learned that he had been started and was doing well working with his trainer. They were planning on using him to run barrels.
