Scotch Bar Time didn’t remain an unknown in the American Quarter Horse world for long.  He came to the attention of not only astute mare owners, but everyone who appreciated a good sire.

The 1974 sorrel stallion by Sonny Dee Bar and out of Chubby Time by Spot Time, was bred by Douglas W. Hobbs of Waukee, Iowa.  At seven years of age, “Scotch” had never been shown due to an injury and only had around 60 foals on the ground.  Jim and Renae Dudley purchased Scotch Bar Time in 1981, but they didn’t stand him until 1982.  During that year, they bought as many of his offspring as they could and borrowed many of the rest to haul and promote.  The stallion was purchased in 1986 by George Stauffer, but remained at the Dudleys’ place in Latimer, Iowa.

Scotch Bar Time’s foals have earned open world championships, reserve open world championships, amateur world championships, youth world championships and youth reserve world championships.  This great stallion has also sired world champions in the American Paint Horse Association and the Palomino Horse Breeders Association.  He sired world champions in events such as western pleasure, hunter under saddle, reining and halter.

Scotch Bar Time is the sire of such notables as Time To Cash In, 1987 Congress all around; Sheza Kinda Fancy, 1985 National Snaffle Bit Association high point money earning mare; and Mr Oakie Scotch who carried a Justin Rookie of the Year to victory.  Scotch Bar Time was inducted into the NSBA Hall of Fame in 2003, and is one of the only sires to appear on all 12 of AQHA’s leading sires lists.

Scotch Bar Time was inducted into the American Quarter Horse Hall of Fame in 2009.
