Notice Our Nvestment
My Final Notice x CustomizedandNvested
2011 blue roan mare

  Notice Our Nvestment turns heads everywhere she goes and every time someone visits BJQH!  Starlet is stunning.  What makes her so tremendous is her correct build, sweet personality, fabulous movement, and brilliant color.  Starlet was an answer to our prayers the year she was born and a reminder of God's goodness in a year that Shelli and I experienced great loss.  People have asked to purchase her numerous times for significant money but we have chosen to keep her as part of the BJQH family due to her exceptional qualities.  I tell Gianna she is her mare!

Starlet is 15 hands tall, is very stout, has straight legs that neither toe in or out, and is a gorgeous loper and jogger.  Her forearm and hip carry powerful muscling.  Starlet loves people and was born a "people horse."   She lopes like a Dynamic Deluxe, with her withers up, head hanging out in front of her, and her hock buried deep underneath her.

Notice our Nvestment is a full sister to International superstar Notice My Investment, and maternal sister to numerous outstanding  show horses including Congress Top 10 Master's winner A Good Celebration and Reserve World Champion Amateur Elite Western Pleasure horse Customized Portfolio.

Starlet's first two foals of performance age are AQHA show winners! 

In foal to RL Best of Sudden for 2018.
