Why we breed Foundation Quarter Horses:
The bloodlines have changed a little over the years as we work in new stallions, but Don and Jason have always been careful to keep the best possible mix of newer and quality foundation cow working Quarter Horse lines.
When it comes time to pick out your next horse, give some thought to the qualities that will keep you happy & save you money for the long haul. We breed for those same qualities. Our top priority is breeding horses with good genetics. This gives us high level performance caliber talent & ability, good minds, work ethic, low maintenance teeth & hooves, strong thick bone structure, horses that will last. Throw in some color and quintessential QH good looks and there you go!
We enjoy offering something a little different than the mainstream. We strive to provide our clients talented, strong, sane horses that they can use, show, & enjoy for many many years.
All are/can be double registered with foundation AQHA organizations & are nominated/eligible for AQHA's Ranching Heritage Breeders Challenges. Everything we have tested to date has been 5 panel N/N (mares and studs both)
We breed between 15-20 of our personal mares every other year. Most of them were born and raised here on the ranch and have bloodlines going back to Ranch Colonel, Sky High Leo, and Flying X Six. Some of our best broodmares are also our best show and ranch horses. Below are some pictures of our 2015 and 2017 Foal Crops.
Below the Foal Crop Galleries, you will find info on the 3 studs that sired the 2015/2017 crops below.

CATS ROYAL BOON: 2009 AQHA Black Rabicano Stallion
Cats Royal Boon is 2009 AQHA black rabicano stallion. He is talented, good minded, athletic, and an absolute charmer to be around. He has a successful track record in Working Cow Horse, Versatility, Heeling, and a little Ranch Sorting. Standing 14h, but you would never know it as his heart makes him a giant and his thick build make him strong. 2015 is his 1st foal crop, they are proving to be a pleasure to train just like poppa. We are crossing him on our larger foundation mares, and the cross is exactly what we wanted. The mares are amplifying the talent and ability of the stud and adding what we love them for (great bone structure and muscle, great feet & teeth, and a double shot of talent). The foals are built right, talented, extremely smart, trainable, and have hearts of gold.

Berry was an exemplary rope and ranch horse. He was tough, talented, and worked all day without complaint. You will see his name often as a sire and grandsire on our current horse's papers.
Standing at 15.3h. his size and stature ended up being a wonderful asset to our broodmare band. His get are much like him in build, attitude, talent, and color.
