“Arrow” 2012 AQHA Black Gelding $35,000.

Arrow is a 15.1 hand, 1250lb, 10 yr old fancy black ranch gelding with some chrome. This is one of those ol’ timey type QH’s that you don’t find very much anymore. The kind they used to take in the show pen and win the halter with, throw a saddle on and go win the cattle events, throw the kids on, go home and ranch on him till the next show. He is very gentle and an in your pocket type personality that is real easy to get along with. This is a superior ranch horse that is as good a horse outside as we have had, cross any water, pile thru rocks and thick brush with ease. Lots of cow sense and will be easy and quiet when needed and fast and catty when asked. Arrow will be excellent at all ranch duties in and out of the pen, roped a lot of cattle outside and is very stout by the horn. He is a finished head horse and has been hauled and won on. I believe this is the fastest horse I have ever owned. Big, stout, square made, good looking stick! Arrow is a son of 6666’s stallion Bigtime Favorite, earner of $325,000 and offspring earning over 7 million. He is one of those jaw dropping, head turner kind, that has all the ability and talent to back up his looks and pedigree.

“Cat” 2010 AQHA Brown Gelding $35,000.

Sold: Thank you Jordon-Wyoming

Cut, rope, ranch gelding gentle enough for the whole family! Cat is an 11yr old, 14.3 hand, 1100lb seal brown cow horse. This is an exceptionally nice horse that is as broke as you can get one. An own son of the 33 million dollar sire, Metallic Cat and out of Playware earner of $88k NCHA. He is a trained cutter that has also been ranched and roped on both ends. Cat has been in the best of hands in the industry for all his training. A pleasure to be around with a very kind, laid back personality, but all the talent and ability anyone could ask for in a ranch horse. This horse could easily go back in the cutting pen and be shown right now. Horses of this caliber and ability, that are safe for any level rider and fit for the boss to ranch on, are not easy to come by. He’s the goods!

“Charlie” 2012 AQHA Gray Gelding $25,000.

Sold: Thank you Chuck-Virginia

Charlie is a 9yr old, 14.3 hand, 1150 lb gray ranch gelding. We bought Charlie straight off the 300,000 acre Wagonhound Ranch in Wyoming, where he was bred and raised, and he is packing their brand. An own son of WR This Cats Smart, a NCHA & NRCHA all time leading sire whos get have won over $14.5 million and out of an own daughter of Playgun.  This is a very nice gelding that came out of a great program, started as a working cowhorse, and has been used as a ranch horse since broke. He will have a flying lead change, stop and turn around like one should and hook up on a cow and fence one in the arena. A really nice horse to ranch on, sure footed in any terrain, cross water, big ’ol trot with lots of bottom. Tended lots of cattle in BIG country, roped outside and in the pens, drug lots of calves to brand. Real handy in the pens stripping or sorting, automatic on gates. Charlie is gentle and stays gentle, very talented with a show horse handle, and enough umph to run a cowhorse pattern and work a cow, but better outside than most trail horses. Been ridden with dogs to gather cattle and gets along great. Make a team roper on either end in a heartbeat.

“Crow” 2016 AQHA Sorrel Gelding $25,000.

Sold: Thank You to repeat customer Chad-Kansas 

Crow is a 5yr old, 15.1 hand, 1250 lb stout, solid built, Sorrel gelding. Bred by the famous Matador ranch in Texas and carries their brands. This is a sure nuff top end, high caliber ranch gelding that has and can do it all on the ranch. He is very broke in the bridle, big stopping, very cowy, quick footed and catty on a cow especially for a big horse and is as nice a horse to rope on as you’ll find. He is gentle and stays gentle even with being thrown out in the pasture for weeks. Crow has been in my string for the past year plus and because of us moving this summer from NM to Texas I know he can be caught out of the pasture fresh, cinch up and go rope or do anything asked of him without a hump or question. He had been started in the arena roping, hauled and won on at several double mugging and ranch rodeos by a very good hand, when we bought him. Crow is a superior horse outside and will get through the thickest of brush, rocks, cactus and the steepest terrain you can ride in, and rope anything in that same country. Tended lots of cattle in big country, Texas and NM. Double tough nice young gelding that has seen and done as much as most old ones, but will last you for many years.

“Grit” 2017 AQHA Buckskin Gelding $30,000.

Sold: Thank you Jake-Texas

Grit is a 4 year old, 14.3 hand, 1150#, Buckskin colored Dun ranch gelding. He has a big soft kind eye and put together right. This gelding is super gentle and broke for the whole family to ride. If you need to rope or get something done you’ll enjoy being on him but he’s also safe to put the grandkids on. He was bred by the XL Ranch and has been used outside extensively for all ranch duties, is very cowy and will sure watch one. He’s handy broke with a big stop and can really ride around if asked to. Grit is good to rope on and will work a rope to tie one down. Hobble broke, rides one handed with a smooth trot and lope, great with the dogs, cross any water, and very nice to ride outside. Moves off your legs and good on gates. Easy to catch and has a fantastic personality with good manners. Horses like him at his age, with his looks and good mind, don’t come around very often.
