This stallion was gelded (in order to show up as a reference sire on my website he is still listed as a stallion).
Brilliant blue color and a baby doll head on this direct son of Blueboy Quincy. I bought this stallion directly from the fellow who had purchased Blueboy from Manitoba. This colt was in Alan's opinion the best stallion that he had off of Blueboy.
Alan won a lot of money on Blueboy calf roping and team roping. The sire of Ty Barrel - Tyroan Jet was a horse that Alan owned and used extensively as a rope horse, and sired foals that could go out and ranch, rope, rein, and burn up the barrel pattern. The mare Ty Barrel herself was a super mare with brains and power, and another successful rope horse. When Alan finally planned on retiring her and getting some foals out of her, he searched long and hard for the mating he considered a perfect fit for the mare. He ended up coming to Canada on the advice of a friend to look a stallion that was an unknown - taking Blueboy back to the states. Unfortunately the mare was lost 2 days after foaling Oscar.
I have been to the States and seen the offspring of this stallion and can not put in words how impressed I was by them; pretty, and talented in all fields. The last foal crop sired by Oscar in the US (08 foals) are destined for the reined cowhorse arena in Oklahoma.
With Blueboy Quincy deceased (and the last decade of his life spent in the States) the direct offspring sired by Blueboy that I own are pretty darned special.
Oscar is being used down in a mountain community pasture for the summer, and what a great mount he is proving to be. This horse will do anything that you ask of him, and could be part mountain goat for the ease that he tackles the terrain. There are a lot of gears that this guy is able to grab when you ask him to! No doubt that the foals sired by Oscar will have the serious power to be able to either rope or barrel race. I wish that I had kept more replacements sired by him!!
