Paddys Shota MeradaPaddys Shota Merada, "Paddy," was purchased as a weanling at the John Scott Dispersion Sale in 2000. We were instantly attracted to his outstanding conformation and physical presence. We were looking for a stallion prospect that had winners throughout his pedigree, but was also versatile enough to perform in any aspect of the performance world. "Paddy" Is an NCHA money-earner, has his NCHA Certificate of Ability and is an aged event winner with limited showing.  In 2004 he was one of only two horses to make it to the finals in both the Open and Non-Pro Derby at the Canadian Supreme.  He was the MCHA Open Derby Champion, SSCHA Winter Series Open Champion, and has won or placed in nearly every event he has entered.

The Paddys Shota Merada colts are versatile all-around horses and we have never had a bad report on one in five foal crops.  We are riding quite a few at the ranch and I can't say enough about them. They have a lot of cow, they are quick, athletic and yet they are really easy to start; as they just give you "what you want" kind of attitude. For several years we have bred  "Paddy" to our good daughters of Justaswinging Peppy, Travalena, Jewel Dun It, Royal Quick Dash,  Cat Silver, and others.

The "Paddys" are performers as well;  they are doing well in Reining and Team Penning. One of his colts, Paddys Shota Spark (pictured below) won the Montana Reined Cowhorse Stallion Stakes Futurity in 2009.  Look for them again at some major Reining and Reined Cowhorse events in 2010. 

Paddy's colts are eligible for the Montana Reined Cowhorse and the Canadian Supreme as they become of age.

Congratulations to the new owners of Paddys shota Merada, Bob & Karen Meyer of Glad Valley, South Dakota.
