Zip is a full sister to SMARTLITTLEJRFRECKLES and to FRECKLES SMART COLORS. She is living up to the family tradition and has become a champion with her win at the Colorado State Fair. She is quiet and gentle and loves to investigate what her people are doing. She has roaned out in her coat pattern from when she was foaled and is now a beautiful true bay roan color. In November of 2013 a photo of Peggy and Zipper was on the cover of the Paint Horse Journal with a full article inside about Paynter’s Paint Ranch. Go Zipper!

For 2018 and 2019 she was bred to Gunner on Ice and has had two beautiful tobiano stud colts. One is Bay Roan, Color Me On Ice, and the younger one is a bay, Zips Icy Gunner.  Color Me On Ice has been sold to Tasha Grissom and is in training.

Zips Icy Gunner is now in training at Laubscher Performance Horses to see what his talent tells us.

2021  Zipper foaled a beautiful red roan OVERO filly by This One Time.  “Princess Zip” is quick and talented.  She is hiding all of her white on the underneath of her body.  Imagine our surprise when she rolled over to display all of her white spots.  We expect her filly to become a Championship Reined Cow Horse.
