Doug and Lacey Kremer
Stud Fee: $750
Defending World Champion Heeler Junior Nogueira pulled back several times on a mare named Miss Sunny D that was also campaigned with success in tie-down roping by C.R. Bradley. Her sire, Mr Sunolena Letters, also sired Doug and Lacey Kremer’s flashy black stud, MrBuddyToYou.
Their daughter, Audrey, was just 8 when she fell for the cute foal during a visit to Smith Performance Horses. She called him “Buddy,” so her parents bought him and gave him that registered name. He remains owned by Audrey, 15. MrBuddyToYou sports the double Doc-Bar blood of Mr Sun O Lena on top and is out of a Mr San Peppy granddaughter.
“We weren’t even going to keep him a stud,” said Lacey. “It wasn’t even on our radar. But he convinced us. He was absolutely the most laid-back horse we’d ever been around. So intelligent and so easy-going.”
The Kremers’ neighbor, Bryce Bott, started him and was taking the colt to a jackpot literally within a month, she said.
“This horse has had more runs in jackpots and rodeos than he has in practice, because he’s just so smart,” added Lacey, who noted his progeny are eligible for Riata Buckle, Royal Crown and NILE Gold Buckle futurity incentives.
Now 7, the stud has been hauled to high school rodeos with mares. He’s already won PRCA money in tie-down roping and been hauled all over the country in breakaway, taking Audrey to the short round of the Tuffest Jr. World Championship Breakaway in Las Vegas.

“He makes my job so easy to go rope,” Audrey said. “It’s just easy for everybody with everything you do with him.”
