STUD FEE: $3,000
SIRE: Blazin Jetolena
DAM: Dasher Dude by Texas High Dasher
While the Busbys weren’t looking for a new stud to add to their lineup, it was hard to pass up A Blazin Dude, a full sibling to Blazin With My Dude that Andrea Busby jockeyed in the barrel racing to a win at the 2022 Cheyenne Frontier Days and later became the 2022 Mountain States Circuit Horse of the Year.
A son of Blazin Jetolena and out of Dasher Dude, an NFR go-round winner with lifetime earnings surpassing $570,000 and progeny earnings of more than $118,000, A Blazin Dude inherits a legacy of champions.
“The stallion game is tough; it’s a long process, to say the least,” Andrea said. “I’d watched A Blazin Dude, and I just thought, ‘Man, what better horse to add to our program?’ He’s had success, and we’ve had so much success with his full sister.”
As a team roping sire, he brings enough cow to watch one and enough speed to catch one. What really sets the stallion apart, though, is his demeanor. Echoing the well-known traits of Blazin Jetolena horses, he is kind, willing and easy to work with. This makes him the type of horse that can effortlessly switch from event to event.
