Smart Lena Boon
Smart Lena Boon is Ranked #1 for Non-Pro money-earning offspring in the 2008 NCHA Futurity.
During training, the 2002 colt became injured. It may have kept him from the performance arena, but it didn't prevent the folks at D4 Quarter Horses from recognizing Boonie's stallion potential. For starters, they bred seven mares Ã¢â‚¬" the next year, people started paying attention.
To date, Boonie is sound and healthy and has over 125 babies on the ground that reflect their sire's balance, temperament, and solid bone. Many are currently in training.
The DeFoors showcased the power behind that progeny at the Western Bloodstock's 6th Annual Super Stallion Saturday, held this past December at the NCHA World Championship Futurity in Ft Worth, Texas. Public reception was extraordinary, Kip said, and Boonie spent more time out with his admirers than in his stall. When it was all over, the DeFoors walked away with numerous breeding contracts and the assurance of many more in the coming weeks.
Smart Lena Boon is very easy to handle and has a wonderful disposition that he passes along to his offspring. The interest from potential breeders about this fine stallion has been phenomenal. I truly believe that Smart Lena Boon will prove to be an outstanding sire and produce winners for years to come.
