AQHA/WPRA Barrel Horse of the Year Perculatin is the product of a strong maternal line of barrel horses.
When you breed a barrel horse to a sire of barrel horses, you should end up with a barrel horse, right? When Reijan Pickens of Kiowa, Okla., crossed her great barrel mare Curiocity Corners on Dash For Perks, an all-time leading sire of barrel horses, she created a great barrel horse—Mary Walker’s AQHA/WPRA Barrel Horse of the Year Perculatin (“Latte”).
While pictures of Latte’s famous paternal side are easily attainable, his maternal line, like so many others, remains a mystery to the public. Pickens, who has a long history with Latte’s maternal side, has graciously shared a few of Latte’s family photos from his dam’s side.
Be sure and pick up a copy of the December issue of Barrel Horse News to read in-depth profiles on the horses slated to appear at the upcoming Wrangler National Finals Rodeo. Get to know the top horse and rider teams to watch in Las Vegas, December 6-15!
