Great Things Come in "Teenie Packages"
Komokos Teenie Jeanie was another of the top picks in our Legendary Mare category. She was bred by Joel and Alma Bridges of Komoko Ranch. A small mare in stature, she measured 28.5" at maturity, a solid bay with no markings. In 1984, Teenie Jeanie had already produced three foals for the Bridges prior to winning her National title. Amazingly at ten, when most brood mares have finished their show careers, Teenie Jeanie was named National Grand Champion Aged Mare. Quite an accomplishment as most mares at that would have "lost their figure" after having several foals! Her produce record also speaks for itself as she consistently produced small, refined and correct show offspring year after year.
Her first foal was Komokos Little King Supreme who was purchased by Ed and Marianne Eberth in 1984. the Eberth's liked King Supreme so well they purchased both Komokos Teenie Jeanie and her son- Komokos Bay Rum. He was named Reserve National Champion in 1984- the same year Teenie Jeanie won her title.
Jeanie was bred to Boones Little Buckeroo in 1989 and produced Little Kings Buck Echo who was a Reserve National Grand Champion Junior Stallion and a National Champion producer.
Teenie Jeanie was bred again to Buckeroo in 1991 and produced her first filly, Little Kings Buckeroo Dejavu. Dejavu was Reserve National Grand Champion Junior Mare and achieved several top ten placings as well as being a Top Ten Producer herself.
Perhaps Teenie Jeanie's crowning achievement took place in 1992 when her offspring won Produce of Dam at the National show. They repeated the win again in 1993 and took Reserve in 1994 Those same years both her get, Buck Echo and Dejavu, won the Get of Sire Class with Boones Little Buckeroo as the listed sire. To say Teenie Jeanie was a prolific producer is quite and understatement. She consistently out-produced herself as well as complimented all the great stallions she was bred to. Teenie Jeanie produced 9 foals, 4 of which were National Grand or Reserve Grand Champions. There are 425 Teenie Jeanie grandget and 10 of them have been titled National or Reserve National Champion.
In 2005, Komokos Teenie Jeanie passed away at age 29 and was buried in the Little King Memorial next to her son, Komokos Little King Supreme, and several other famous horses of the industry.
