Fame's Pushy Lady

 

Fame’s Pushy Lady is affectionately known as “BJ” around the farm.

We first met BJ in 1999 while visiting another horse in training at Joe London Training Stables.  She was a supremely talented mare whose short but brilliant show career was cut short due to a leg injury involving a fence that left her with a severed tendon. The injury forced her show career to a halt and left her unable to be ridden.

Even with her injury, when Joe allowed me to ride BJ for a few passes around the riding ring she absolutely blew me away. She is one of the best natural walking horses I’ve ever ridden, injury and all. I can only imagine what she might’ve done in the show ring if the injury hadn’t sidelined her. When BJ moves, you feel like you are walking with purpose. Her powerful natural rhythm echoes through your body, but in a good way. It’s like feeling the rhythm of music. The video on this page was taken right out of the field at 14 years old and 10 weeks after foaling. She hadn’t been ridden in six years and just watch her! We tried to acquire her older pictures and videos to help create a better picture, but they were sadly lost in a fire.

Joe chose BJ as a youngster. From the moment he laid eyes on her, he felt she was destined for greatness. She came out of the womb walking and shaking on a level that usually takes years to reach. Everyone who knew BJ will tell you that she is one of the most natural, talented horses out there.

When she was first put under saddle, she just went right into walking and shaking. Everything with BJ was just…easy! She was easy to work with and just so naturally talented. She loved trail riding and showing and walked a show level gait no matter if it was a dirt road or a mountain path. Although she is a high caliber show mare we expect her foals to do well in any venue --- just like BJ!

Though I hinted (OFTEN) that I’d like to own BJ, we never dreamt we’d have the opportunity. When Joe told us she was available in 2013 we jumped at the chance. We feel so blessed to have her.

When we think of BJ, the first thing we think of is her talent and AMAZING way of going, but there is more to her. She is as beautiful on the inside as she is on the out. Just a sweet, solid, good tempered lady.

BJ has proven her worth as a broodmare. Joe London has her firstborn foal, Wise and Famous, under saddle and he is just amazing. He also acquired her second foal, a liver chestnut filly by Golden Gambler (This Lady Likes to Gamble) For a trainer of Joe’s caliber to retain her two foals should tell you just what kind of quality she is producing.

BJ foaled a chestnut filly by Rowdy Rev on May 22, 2015. We were hoping for a filly to keep in our program, and now we have her! 

BJ is in foal to Gambler's Midas Touch WF for a guaranteed palomino or buckskin foal in 2017.

She is available for sale at $2,500 as a broodmare only due to her leg injury.

Here is a video of her first son, Henry (Wise and Famous):
