7-9-11 Update:  All horses are home and trying to stay cool and healthy in this extreme drought.  All colts have been weaned and Drifty's colt has gone to his new home.  We have had 100+ days since May 2011 with no measurable rain fall since last summer.  Please PRAY FOR RAIN for all the southern United States during this very difficult time.

Ranch Horses ....

 ...... horses that are good minded with excellent dispositions, conformation, pedigree and yes...  horses with color all wrapped up in the total package!!!  


We are not horse breeders... we are ranchers!  Our goal is to breed 4-5 mares each year... producing "using" horses with straight legs and good bone.... horses that have cow-sense and athletic ability that we can use here on the ranch.  Our colts can go any direction:  cutting, reining, sorting, ranch competition, roping, team penning,  halter, show and breeding stock, ranch and/or trail riding and just darn good all-around companions.


We currently have a mixture of contemporary and old foundation bloodlines that include: Driftwood, (through the lines of: Driftwood Ike, White Lighting Ike, Wayward Ike, Whiskey Ike HK, Orphan Drift, Drifts Vaquero, Lone Drifter, Setumup Speedy), Leo Hancock Hayes, Blue Valentine, Poco Bueno, Two Eyed Jack, Wimpy, Bill Cody, Joe Cody, King, Colonel Freckles, Peponita, Leo, Sugar Bars, Hollywood Jac 86, Hollywood Gold, Skipper W, Peppy San Badger, Doc Olena, Smart Little Lena, Three Bars,  Blackburn, Pretty Boy, Cutter Bill, Smooth Herman, Steady Tradition, APHA QT Poco Streke, and many more.  We are continuously developing our bloodlines to improve the quality of our horses.  If you see something you like... let us know.  We LOVE talking horses!

This nice colt has Leo Hancock Hayes, Blue Valentine,  Orphan Drift, and Lone Drifter ON his face papers.  He also has a strong line of Haythorn Ranch horses, (past winner of the coveted Inaugural AQHA Remuda Award) on the bottom side.  NO holes in this nice colt's breeding.  Boo is conformationally correct, smart and very athletic with a laid back and sweet disposition.  I am thrilled how this colt is maturing!  I have searched a very long time for a colt that IS the total package, bloodlines, conformation, disposition and YES color.

One of my all time favorites...


Horses know nothing of money, status, beauty, or accomplishment..... Horses see only our hearts, and they accept or reject us based on what they find within us. In short, horses do naturally what humans can pass a lifetime without ever mastering.
