Graceland Voodoo Dr (Grace Ann)
Grace Ann, born in 2016 spring, is a strong and willing partner in everyday ranch operations. Rounding up cattle, sorting or counting, she's ready to go and enjoys the work.
Grace has a huge, well-tuned engine in the back! With her intelligence and easy-going temperament, training progresses quickly. These photos were taken in June 2020.
We recently hauled her to a Boxing Clinic at a new arena, much bigger than any she has seen with new horses, lots of new indoor sounds and overnight stalls. She was a rockstar, and rode the clinic like a pro - both reining circles, run downs and spins as well as boxing cows. Running to stop cows on the fence was obviously a lot of fun for this girl!
Steady, slow training has built a beautiful top line on this young mare as well as strong bones and tendons for daily work. This mare is solid - and ready for a demanding career. She should have the longevity of her grandsire, Elivs (NMSU Truckin Chex) - 6 time World Bridle Horse Champion under Kevin Stallings.
And then there's the cow work. On her very first trip out to cut some cattle you could just see the light going on for Grace. She was keen, with her eyes locked onto the cow and ready to move to keep them from getting past.
Each spring when she sheds out, we see a new version of this gorgeous palomino. Her baby white hair has been replaced by gorgeous gold and that mane just keeps growing. When you enter the show pen, she will be eye catching for sure!
