Smokey The Bar
an own son
|From the beginning, mares with working bloodlines
were selected for the ranch breeding program. In 1964, two mares were bred to
Doc Bar. One of the resulting foals was Smokey The
Bar, born in 1965 to the foundation mare Chubber Cheeks (by
Nevada King, by Lucky Blanton). Chubber's dam traced to
Tony and King. Smokey was bred to ranch mares and a few outside
mares, but not widely promoted to keep the ranch operation low key.
In 1976, the ranch focus was changed to promote and
campaign Smokey at age 13. He successfully competed at AQHA cutting shows until
in April 1978, when he was seriously injured in a breeding accident. By the
following year, Smokey became sufficiently sound to resume stud duties. Smokey
lived to the age of 33. His last foals were born in 1992, when he was 27. Some
of Smokey's notable get are:
- Wyammy Holly, NCHA Certificate of Ability and
dam of the Priolo's good stallion, Colonels Reflection.
- Fancy Wyammy, finalist at the 1976 Pacific
Coast Futurity and dam of Tio Doc (by Mr San Peppy), 1982 Super
Stakes Finalist and 4th in the Tropicana Futurity Finals.
- Chule Wyammy, High Point PCCHA Junior Cutting
and 1979 WCQHA Junior Cutting.

Trail, Trek & Durability
|JoAnn has always
believed in well-rounded horses and uses her horses on local trails and on
longer treks packing in the Sierra wilderness. She provides her horses with
variety and a chance to unwind from the pressures of training and competition.
Her horses reflect her philosophy that a good-minded, sound horse should be
able to do many jobs over a lifetime.
||In testament to
her horses' durability, JoAnn successfully campaigned her 21 year old cutting
mare, Wyammy Sangria, in 1999 at local club cuttings.
Wyammy Ranch is proud of producing high quality,
sound minded and bodied, athletic horses.
