May Show Horse Today Cover Story: Black Creek Crossing
For Lori Watkins at Black Creek Crossing, the excitement is building as the 2013 foals start to arrive and the breeding season is in full swing. The significant changes in late 2010 in moving Vested Pine and Pure Dynamic to Cooper Quarter Horses~ Camelot Stallion Station in Georgia have proven to be wonderful for the stallions and great for their mare owners. Adding The Good Ranger to her stallion line up in late 2011 has really completed the full spectrum of bloodlines that Lori can offer to mare owners. “We feel confident that the communication and service to our customers has been second to none with Clarice managing the stallions and any mares that are there for breeding. Clarice is also great for consultation with those mare owners that are being shipped to help them get the best result too,” Watkins commented, adding “Clarice treats each horse like it’s her own.”
Pure Dynamic is the last of the AQHA western pleasure sires available who are direct sons of Dynamic Deluxe. Add to that his dam, Pocos Unique Fashion, being listed on the leading dams list, his pedigree is very strong on top and bottom with the advantage of crossing so well on all the modern lines today. After a short show career as a two- and three-year-old where he attained his Superior in Amateur (58 Amateur WP points) and Open Western Pleasure (101 Open WP points), he had very limited breedings for a few years, then a long hiatus before Lori found him in 2004. He has built his reputation producing athletic, trainable, gorgeous offspring that have longevity in the show pen and the strength of bloodlines that cross well on all other families. Leaving nothing to chance, he was thoroughly tested for OLWS, GBED, and HERDA (all negative) so Lori’s customers can be assured that crossing him with their mares will not bring any genetic disorder which can be a marketing problem for resulting foals later on. He is also homozygous for the black gene, so he cannot produce a red based foal such as red dun, palomino, sorrel, or chestnut. Lori explains, “Building credentials is a long process and we are happy to report that Pure Dynamic’s offspring have been amassing many great accomplishments that we list on our ‘in the news’ page on our website, as they happen.”
