My career started with Mighty Rustler and rolled over to his two exceptional sons (below). I owe them for what they did for me and the Appaloosa breed.
This is the fella that started it all. All of his foals to show qualified for the World, in every category offered! He was a Multiple Medallion Sire, sire of Res. WC, Superior Halter, Canadian National Champion Sire, ApHC Champion sire, Roping/Reining winners (rodeo), Regional and State Champions in halter and performance. Of only 10 foals to show at World, 5 finished Top 5 and the others finished Top 10. Not bad for such a small offering!!

It’s been an honor and a joy to have Bart in my life. There will never be another like him.
Bart was a very versatile horse who is a pleasure to watch and ride.
He was the Senior Stallion at Forest Edge. Color average is 80%. 60% black, 65% fillies .

Rustler’s Jazz Man – 1992-2009
Futurity Winner & World Qualifier
An outstanding show record for Jazzy, who was “left at home” while Bart was heavily campaigned.
RIP Big Guy
We tragically lost “Jazzy” this winter due to a freak accident when he was showing off as only Jazzy could do and hit a patch of ice in his pen. His shoulder was irreparably damaged. Thankfully we have a couple of his fillies to carry on his legacy.
Jazzy’s massive body, loud color and amazing resemblance to his grandsire, Mighty Tim, have made him a popular stallion at Forest Edge.
Jazzy sired 90% color, with appx 50% dark/black and 50% fillies. Jazzy has been trained in English and Western, and started in Dressage and Reining. He is very catty and his foals are equally catty.
Jazzy sired plenty of muscle, color and capabilities. His foals win Futurities and Halter, Color, WP, HUS and Trail. Versatility plus disposition and willingness.
