Equine Obituary - Jazz Talkin'





 

On Saturday, November 26, 2016, Jazz Talkin' passed away unexpectedly following a bout with colic. Earlier in the season the amazing vet team at Mississippi State Veterinary College did colic surgery on him that appeared to be a success. The strong stallion never completely recovered from this intense procedure. Jazz Talkin' was the 9-Year-Old sorrel stallion who was owned and loved by Dr. Renee Montgomery of Cammack Village, Ark., and was trained by the Abernathy Stables training team.

Foaled on April 1, 2007, he sired by A Jazz Man and his dam was Cotton’s Talkin'. Jazz Talkin' began his training under the direction of Chris Zahnd winning his first blue at Savannah Lions Club show in the Two-Year-Old Stallions class. It was later during his Four-Year-Old season that Jazz Talkin' caught the eye of Edgar Abernathy and Dr. Renee Montgomery at the annual Abernathy Stables Colt Preview. Both knew instantly that he was perfect for what Montgomery was searching for.  He had the look and style followed by an amazing personality. Under this new ownership the talented stallion was shown over 100 times capturing wins at the Delta Fall Classic, Alabama Jubilee, Gum Tree Classic, Heart O’ Dixie, Money Tree Classic, Marshall County Horsemans Association, Mississippi Charity and Woodbury Lions Club just to name a few. Jazz Talkin' was a great ambassador for the breed and will be sadly missed by all who knew him.
