The first 20 APSHA registration numbers were reserved for stallions, but founding member Rebecca Tyler Lockhart reserved Number 21 specifically for a flashy tobiano mare named Calamity Jane, who won fame in the Quarter Horse-dominated cutting arena by being named the NCHA Paint Horse of the Year for three years running. Lockhart declared that the mare “was an example to the entire world of all that a Paint Horse could be.”

Do you have any more information on Calamity Jane. My granddaughter rode a little quarter horse "Lady" who was a rodeo horse in Dallas, Texas before being moved to Oregon. Her owner told us that "Lady's" mother was Calamity Jane. "Lady" is only part of her name, I can't remember the rest of the name. Would you have a list of any offspring Calamity Jane had? Thank you.
