Tri-Mi Just Jasper
Tri-Mi Just Jasper (known as Jasper) returned to the National Breeders Championship show in 2014 to take championship honors in the Yearling Model Championship class after claiming Weanling Model Championship at the 2013 NBC show. Jasper is owned by Melanie Wynn and Russell Kelley of Grovesprings, MO, and was handled/shown by Wade Hightower in 2014 and Laura Hudson in 2013.
'Jasper' was bred, raised, and trained by Linda Shaddy of Tri-Mi Stables. His dam is 'Dixie Blaze' by 'Blizzards Cowboys Brass' and is sired by NAB nominated stallion, 'It's My Time'.
Wynn says that she "fell in love with Jasper when he was 3 days old," noting that his "personality and demenor are one of a kind, not to mention he is easy on the eyes." Jasper has a "large crowd" of followers, Wynn adds several important people to Jaspers success, "Russell Kelley, Linda Shaddy, Janet Cunningham, Chris Wynn, Laura Hudson (NAB handler in 2014), and Wade Hightower (NAB handler in 2014)."
"The atmosphere at the NAB is truly amazing feeling and the icing on the cake is knowing that Jasper helped in creating that kind of atmosphere," says Wynn. "After winning the NAB people really started watching Jasper wanting to know what stud was he out of, who trained him, because of winning the NAB people now who Jasper is," adds Wynn!
Congratulations again to 'Tri-Mi Just Jasper,' owners Melanie Wynn and Russell Kelley, trainer Linda Shaddy, and handler Wade Hightower on their 2014 NBC Yearling Championship win!
