Smart Peppy Date was purchased May 31, 2008 by Victor Almond, owner of 3V Performance Horses in Ponoka, Alberta. This regal stallion left former owners Carl and Julia Gerwien with a long listof accomplishments. He now stands at Vic’s ranch with confidence and anticipation to contine his legacy.

Foaled March 31, 1995 by Wiens Ranch Company Inc. in Sedalia, CO, Smart Peppy Date was an embryo transfer colt sired by Smart Little Lena and Peppys Date. He boasts a deep sorrel colour with a star marking and a left hind white pastern. Smart Peppy Date began his training with his new owners, Carl and Julia Gerwien of Willow Spring Ranch in Nanton, Alberta, after his purchase in December 1996. Carl developed Smart Peppy Date’s talents for both the cutting and working cow horse arenas. Smart Peppy Date suffered an unfortunate injury while cutting at age 3. Back in training at 4, this well healed talented horse won Canada’s Greatest Horseman Competition with Brad Pedersen.
