Its Tuff To Be Smart

Its Tuff To Be Smart, 2019 AQHA Bay Stallion, “Nimrod”

A young stallion with a lot of potential, we will be breeding him to our mares this year for his first crop of colts in 2023. We think his cross of being an own son of Woody Be Tuff and out of a daughter of High Brow Cat, he will add cow and athleticism to our already well-bred mares. As of January 2023, Nimrod has been in great hands with Pullara Performance Horses for a few months, and is headed to rope horse futurities in February!

Nimrod is already proving to be of good mind and sensibilities, and we look forward to riding him more this summer and being a part of his bright future! The name “Nimrod” comes from a place of affection. Mary-Anne’s late grandfather, an amazing international polo player in his own right, had a fantastic polo pony named Nimrod. This horse was one of his favorites for his athleticism and great looks as a big flashy bay. We felt that the name fits, and we are excited for this stallion’s future here at Rafter 54.

Woody Be Tuff is an NCHA lifetime money-earner of $351,063 and a National Cutting Horse Association (NCHA) Open and Non-Pro Futurities semifinalist. He is the No. 2 All-Time Leading Sire of Ranch Horse Money-Earners, the No. 5 Leading Sire of Reined Cow Horse Money-Earners, and is a 2021 Top 12 Leading Sire of Cutting Money-Earners. He is currently owned by Solo Select Horses, LLC, and we are thrilled to have an own son!

For the 2024 breeding season, we will be standing Nimrod at Copper Ridge Equine in Phoenix, AZ for limited breedings. Please get in touch with us if you’re interested in more information!
