Normally I don’t toot my own horn, but I felt that you would like to know. At the 2001 MT Breeder’s Sale, I purchased Zippin Classy Pine (Pretty Classy Zip x Ribbons Jessica) as a bay weanling stud colt. While we tried many different events over the years, nothing seemed to be what either of us wanted to do, until we tried dressage. Finally Zippy and I hit on something that really made sense. This year was our first outing at rated United States Dressage Federation – USDF – shows and I was lucky enough to find AQHA approved shows in Idaho and here in Montana. This week I checked with AQHA and we have earned 19 points in Dressage Training Level, Amateur and currently are sitting 2nd in the nation. And we have just begun!

Nancy, this horse is my FB cover photo and Pretty Classy Zip is his grandsire. This is Zans Echol Pine, a 10 year old out of Zips Panda Page (a PBQH broodmare again) out of Kizzie Page x Ribbon Page, and by Pretty Classy Zip. Pine's sire is Zandular x Zan Parr Bar and a Sugar Bars daughter.
Pine has turned into a great horse and will do just about anything you ask of him. I have had great success with him as a barrel horse running mainly 1D/2D times, but my son heads and heels on him with equal success.

If all Profit colts had temperaments like this, and were this athletic, willing, and had this kind of personality; I would NEVER own anything else!!

Thought you would like to know that the filly has settled in without a fuss. We already have a “Breeze”, so we are calling her “Prairie”. My vet came yesterday and freeze branded her – again no fuss. So she is officially part of the Hayden Ranch, joined the family so to speak. She follows me around and says hello when she sees me coming to feed. I’ve got her acclimated to grass now so tomorrow she will join big sister in the pasture. I talked to a really good trainer about starting her late in the summer. He specializes in reining and I think that will give her a good start. Hope things are slowing down a little for you now. Keep in touch if you have time. Have a great summer! Thanks for a really nice horse.

My Profit Wiggins is doing great. I love roping on her and
won money at jackpots team roping on her as a 4 year old!! She has finally
matured enough to barrel race but she wants to go too fast! Nothing
major...just needs to figure out how to drop her ass a little more when
going mock 80 into a turn! This mare can flat fly. I have only entered her
4 times. The first time she clocked a solid 2D time..I thought it was good
for her cause I never know what to expect.

Hi Nancy, thought you might like to see this video of Taryn and Zips Classy Jolie x Pretty Classy Zip. Taryn Brown purchased Jolie from me about two years ago and has won several thousand on her in Canada and the US.

I thought you might like to hear that Breeze, aka Dashin Jet, who is by Royal Three Dash, earned her first paycheck at a barrel race last weekend. It was only the second time I ran her too! I am so happy with her. She really wants to please and is a big lover with me. Seems like each time I work with her I see improvement. One of the nicest things about her is how she takes everything in stride and doesn’t get upset about things. You need to get some more of your young stud’s colts out there competing!
How is Lea doing? When is she due to foal? We didn’t forget that we promised you some turkey feathers, but all our turkeys vanished as soon as the snow melted last spring. It was a terrible spring for nesting last year and not much snow this winter. I don’t know where the turkeys are. Hope the wolves didn’t eat them!
Hope the foaling season goes well for you and your horse business does well.

Dear Larry and Nancy,
Well, we made it home after the Sale with Dashin N Cashin x Dr J. We are so excited. I have walked him every day. He has such a calm personality and such a long stride. It is amazing. Looking forward to spending a lot of time training him and seeing how fast he will be. I'll keep you updated.

Here is a picture of Mr Profiteer that I snapped the other day after riding him. He appears near black but he had just received a bath after a long ride. It was hot!
However, he is now a gelding....really due to no fault of his own. I am getting to many horses in comparison to my time to ride. I knew if I kept him a stud that I would just continue to breed him and have colts. Then the next problem is....I can't seem to sell them!!!! :)
Regardless, he is still as awesome as ever and I can't wait to start running him this coming winter!
I hope that you have a great sale. We got the catalog....what a beautiful set of colts!

Subject: Dr J filly
Hi Nancy -
I just got in the house from admiring the filly (Dashin Classy Chick). I have never seen a horse with such common sense and wonderful mind. She hauled like a champ and when I got her home she simply looked around, and walked out of the trailer as quietly as though she had done it a hundred times. I took her to her pen and she started eating and just walking around - I couldn't believe my eyes - what a smart little filly!! Well I could brag on her for longer than I've even know her :o)
Anyway - the point is - she has a new knick name. Her adoring public were arguing about her mark on her face. Some thought it was a heart and others a diamond.....soooo....her new knickname is dart (diamond/heart). It is kind of cute and dart's are usually fast so I agreed. I wanted to name her Dolce (spanish for sweet) but no one could pronounce it so I caved in to popular demand and "dart" it is.
It is going to be hard to sleep tonight because if I ever saw a chance for the NFR it would be her. Speed and that amazing disposition - the possibilities are endless!! But that will be many years from now so with that thought - good night and thank you!

Are you booking Profit and Dr J for the 2012 season soon?
We have a 3 y.o. filly that we bred for out of Pretty Classy Zip that we are so happy with!
When my daughter was 11 y.o. we researched many stallions that would cross well on her Dash for Cash mare and found three that we liked in Montana , and she ultimately picked Pretty Classy Zip out all by herself. She has taken the little filly for her colt to maturity project and we just love the way she is progressing. She is smart, quick, black and absolutely beautiful ~ Thank you so much!

Just thought I would send you a quick message. Not sure if you remember, but my husband Rod and I bought Mr Profiteer (we call him Profit) in your 2007 sale. I just wanted to tell you how much we love him, and are so proud to call him ours! We ended up leaving him a stallion and have two very nice colts out of him thus far. We have a yearling gelding and a 2011 filly. I can't tell you how many compliments I get on him! I will send some pictures of him soon!
I always enjoy your pictures of your beautiful colts.....how blessed you must feel to own "Profit" who sires such awesome horses!

Wiggins x Profit is doing great...the guy that I had start her took a job on a ranch this summer. I just got her back after spending a month there. I haven't ridden her yet because she had a nasty abscess on one of her feet. He doctored cattle on her and fenced and all the works... and wanted to buy her. She has a big brain. She is amazing. I just watched her run across the pasture. I have a fast horse. Effortless. Take Care!! I will try to get you some pics... I am bad about that..sorry!

I rode my Profit filly for the 1st time today. She is two. I had my guy put 15 rides on her first. You cannot believe the things she can do already. He is a great trainer but I have never had one do the things she is doing after 15 rides. I feel truly blessed. She is the last foal I had out of my mare before I sold her. She has a big motor and a huge brain. And her personality..my gosh, she is "impossibe not to love". If something happens to my 7 year old mare I am bringing her to be bred by Profit. I feel so blessed! I hope you guys are doing well.

The absolute highlight of my trip was to be in the same pen with "Profit Increase"; What a thrill!
