Nifty Jo Jackie


2015 AQHA very light silvery grulla colt with no white

EE aa DD & no cream gene

Reeds Poco Vandyke x Nifty Jo Jackie




Bred & raised by Shining C Grulla Horses and one of the last foals by Reeds Poco Vandyke! You will probably never get the opportunity to own another colt like him, a double homozygous, light silver, no white, high foundation bred son of Neal! He is already breeding age, has settled his first mare safely in foal and has 60 days training under saddle with Stuart Rybak. He is quiet, relaxed, VERY WELL SOCIALIZED with other horses so you do not have to worry about any frustrated stallion behavior! He knows how to act like a gentleman and lives with other geldings, can ride around other horses without a care, etc. We raise all of our horses that way, stallions included. He has been started slowly on cattle and has a cute little stop, roll back and turn around. Walk, trot, lope on his correct leads in the inside arena and out as well as ridden outside and stays just as quiet, relaxed and happy. Has not offered to buck or act silly, however he is a 2 year old stallion. He will be 3 years old in June of 2018 and has been slow to mature. He currently stands at 14.0 hands and string tests to 14.2 hands at maturity. That is the only reason that his price is not double but in a couple more years you will not even recognize him! He should also be an outstanding producer! Color wise he can ONLY produce grulla and dun foals no matter what mare he is bred to. He is sound, straight, correct and blemish free with great bone and nice feet. 5 panel tested N/N and shipping is available if needed.



2008 AQHA cremello mare

Mr Boomerjac x Miss Lena Benita (Lean With Me)




“Bunny” is an extremely special mare who has never been over worked or over shown. She is absolutely safe for absolutely anyone to ride and has proven tolerant of kids literally climbing all over her but she can also step in to the show pen and WIN! Very stylish, honest, talented and automatic. She has been ridden outside as well as is great! Always the same, even if kept at home with time off in between! Fantastic youth or prime time horse!! She is totally sound and already a proven producer with a foal by SPOOKS GOTTA WHIZ! Ride her, breed her and enjoy her wonderful personality!! With her color producing guarantee she can only produce buckskin and palomino foals! Shipping is not a problem if needed.



2006 AQHA bay mare

Topgun Whiz x Clever Chex



“Marlee” is SAFE, SAFE, SAFE and even after time off at home she rides off just as broke and honest as if she is ridden ever day! Natural low headset, carries herself very round and is VERY soft. She’s a comfortable ride! You can ride her in a bosal, a snaffle or straight up in the bridle. Was shown for a couple of years but has had some time off while having a couple of colts by SMART SPOOK who are having success in the show ring. Great stop, nice turn arounds, easy flying lead changes. Very sensible mare, great temperament and awesome to be around. Easy keeper, ties, cross ties, good for farrier, trailers with ease, etc. Can’t say enough nice things about her and to top it off she’s very easy on the eyes. Currently getting a tune-up, should be more than ready to start showing her again in the spring. ALSO GREAT OUT ON THE TRAIL! Originally came from Stroud Ranch in Washington state. 5 panel tested N/N and shipping is available if needed.






Buyer Etiquette & Responsibility

Buyers have an obligation to represent honestly their skill level and intentions. Buyers who don’t take the time and trouble to learn good horsemanship ruin good horses quickly.  Remember no horse is ever “finished.” They are sensitive creatures that continue to learn new behaviors throughout their lives.  A novice horse person will “undo” professional training in a matter of minutes. At Shining C Grulla Horses we don’t want to sell you an unsuitable horse. Help us help you with accurate representation of your riding limits, experience and goals. If a horse’s price is more than you want to spend, ask whether it’s negotiable before you make an appointment. If you need to sell your existing horse before acquiring a new one, please address that issue first. If you are serious about one of our horses consider putting a deposit to hold or buy yourself first right of refusal to avoid the heartache of finding out your ideal horse has sold out from under you. Another important realization is that our horse prices can increase every month in direct proportion to the cost of full care, training and competition. Expect that the horse will perform better for the professional trainer it has bonded to than will be the case with a new owner/rider. Subtle differences in riding technique produce very different responses from the horse.  It may just be a matter of time and a little professional help before you and your new horse become a team, do not expect it immediately, they are live animals.
