Western Fortunes inducted Perfect Possibility into the Legends program in 2020.
The great, "Perfect" will never be forgotten and his legacy will carry on for generations to come.
It was with great sadness, owner, Dee Butterfield of Butterfield Performance Horses in Ponoka, Alberta had to say farewell to her beloved and beautiful Perfect Possibility.
Perfect Possibility, a 1996 sorrel by First Down Dash and out of Perfect Arrangement by Easy Jet, was laid to rest at his home, in the pasture at the front the house overlooking the arena.
Not only did Perfect Possibility make a remarkable impact on the industry with offspring earnings, titles, and recognition, he proved to be a notable broodmare sire as well.
The legacy started over 20 years ago when Dee Butterfield purchased him as a 3-year old at the Heritage Sale in Oklahoma City.
Perfect Possibility was a full brother to, Dashing Perfection (SI 123), who was a 2x World Champion, a Speed Index of 123 and over $500,000 in winnings as a 3-year old.
Perfect Possibility surpassed the Butterfield’s greatest expectations as he went on to become one of the most predominant, versatile sires over the next 2 decades. His offspring have excelled in racing, barrel racing, pole bending, goat tying, steer wrestling, hazing, team roping, & 4H. He produced offspring that competed at the CFR, NFR, PRCA Circuit Finals & a qualifier in World Barrel Racing Futurity finals. He produced provincial race Champion, High School Rodeo Champions, Canadian High Point Futurity & Canadian High Point Derby Champions, ABRA 1-D & High Point Champion plus multiple Futurity & Derby winners in Canada & the US. He has been the CBHI # 1 leading sire 4 years & # 2 five years. In the 2 years of the Western Fortunes he has been #2 leading sire. These are just a few of the many progeny accomplishments as the list is endless.
Perfect Possibility turned dreams into reality, as he changed the barrel industry with his many living legends, who will carry his legacy on for years to come.
The hardest thing is saying goodbye to one of the all-time greats. His legacy will be carried on through his daughters. “It will not be the same without this kind dispositioned guy who was always looking to be loved on. We are so grateful to have had him in our lives for the past 20 years. Thanks for all the years, until we meet again friend” ❤
