29+ year old mare
'mother or grandmother to today's Coronado Quarter Horses'
'Poopi' (Assured Seas), was sired by Assuredville. He had a short but promising racing career until an injury retired him to stud. He is by the great thoroughbred Nashville TB a top race horse producer and stakes winner, and out of the black type mare Miss Assured who produced 2 All American Derby winners, including Streakin Six after the age of 18. She was also a multiple stakes producing mare .
Assured Seas' dam was Queen's Oceanette TB. There are pictures of her roping on the 'Our Horses' web pages. She was a tall stout Thoroughbred mare that was one of the best head horses ever, yet could easily rate and adjust to heeling. She loved to cut cattle and run barrels. Though she was a TB, her first love was anything to do with working cattle. The love of working cows is very strong in these bloodlines. We team penned on very successfully Assured Seas for a couple of years until a bad injury forced her into the broodmare business. She has produced some fine colts from sires such as Royal Go Go; Keno's Golden Sun, APHA; Eyes A Twist, APHA; Tiger Stripe; Tardy's Redwood; and Tiger Stripe Doc.

At nearly 30 years old, our beloved 'Poopi' is still going strong despite the move from sunny California to the snows of northern Washington. She loves helping to raise babies and looks forward to them in the Spring (that has to be what keeps her going in the Winter). Her extremely strong heart and willingness to please has always been passed to her foals. She was my best friend and partner for many years under saddle. Her kindness and gentleness is unbelievable. Though she was such a high strung, spirited horse, she could be controlled by the hair of her mane. I always felt she knew what I was thinking, therefore I didn't have to waste time cueing her. We are so thankful to have been able to get her up here where she can live out her well deserved retirement days on green pastures as God had intended.
