Currently For Sale

Bert, 2010, sorrel gelding

(Meradas Truckin Chex - Meradas Blu Starlite x Leapin Lindy Chex)

This is a rare opportunity to acquire a performance ready bridle horse.  Bert is a big, solid gelding who has all the basics for Reined Cow Horse competition but has never really been shown.  This means that he is strong and healthy, unlike many futurity horses.  He is an easy ride trailing cattle or in the arena.  With his size and quiet demeanour, he makes a great turn back horse in cutting or a perfect mount for heading.


Dora, 2003, bay mare

(Mates Footsteps - Smart Mate x Peppys Lil Footsteps)

Another rare opportunity - this time a chance to acquire a stellar brood mare.  Dora brings the pedigree from the very successful Smart Mate lines.  She is no longer sound for regular riding, but could tote a youngster or enjoy a pasture retirement.

Dora's pedigree includes many historical winners in AQHA history; Smart Little Lena, Freckles Playmate, Peppy San Bader and Dora Creek.  Behind these horses are the memorable Doc Olena, Smart Peppy, Freckles Playboy, Nip Nap, Mr San Peppy, Sugar Badger, Docs Eldorado and Paula Creek.  This mare brings the foundation lines alive.


Breeze, 2009, sorrel mare

(SG Aech She Smart - Chics In The Male x Smokin Aech)

This brood mare is reining bred.  She has flaxen hairs in mane and tail and a refined narrow blaze.  We've ridden her in the arena, at the show and out to gather cattle.  She is a solid worker, rarely injured.  And she throws correct, beautiful foals.


Reye, 2007, sorrel mare

(Purple Dual Rey - Marque Dual Rey x Purple Pistol )

This brood mare has cutting in her blood and cutting training and performance in her history. 

A pretty little sorel with a lovely white star on her face, she is as friendly as they come.

Star, 2018, chestnut mare

(Greys Peppy J - Diamond J Star x Star Reys)

This mare goes back to Peppy San Badger, Doc's Starlight, Freckles Playboy (x2), Grays Starlight and Miss Smart Rey Jay.  She's built to compete and although started a bit later, she's learning fast.  Take her home and head to the Derby next year.

Star Aug 22-1.jpg

Buzz, 2018, bay gelding

(Filos Big Bee - Filos Sugar Bars x Honey Bee Lynx)

With papers going back to Docs Hickory, Dry Doc 17, Gay West and Doc Peppy James, this strong gelding has classic quarter horse lines behind him.  He has the basics for roping, reining, cowhorse or ranch work.




KitKat, 2019, sorrel mare

(PC Pretty Smooth Cat - Smokin Smooth Dually x Great Red Peppy Chic)

This quick footed mare goes back to High Brow Cat, Dual Pep, Smart Chic Olena and Great Red Pine.  She's got the bloodlines and the attitude to show off in roping or cutting events.


KitKat Aug 22-2.jpg

Smartie, 2019, sorel mare

(Smart In My Jeans - Dulces Smart Dude x Genuine Jean)

Smartie's papers include Smart Little Lena, Holidoc, Genuine Doc and Peppy San amongst others.  She's as smooth as they come, smart and easy minded.


Smartie Aug 22-2.jpg

Chiclet, 2020, palomino mare

(Sheza Diamond Chic - Heza Diamond Chic x SG Aech She Smart)

Chiclet is a fine young mare by John Swales'winning mount at World's Greatest Horseman. With her breeding and conformation, her smooth start is no surprise.  Given her fine pretty look,
consider her for reining or cowhorse.  Pretty as they come, she'll take you to the winner's circle in style.

Chiclet Aug 22-1.jpg

Shiner, 2020, red dun gelding

(Shiners In The Bar - Shiners Got Swagger x Toris Big Step)

Shiner is an easy-going, big, solid gelding going back to Shining Spark, Doc's Oak, Miss Torima Jac and Bar Money Sunny Doll.  This one takes everything in stride and just follows your cue.  Consider this prospect for roping or cowhorse futurities.

Shiner Aug 22-1.jpg

Riley, 2021, sorel mare

(Truckin Heavnly Reys - Reys From Heaven x Truckin Lisa Marie) registration pending

Riley is a pretty sorrel mare with plenty of  mane. Her dam is by NMSU Truckin Chex, a multi-time champion in NRCHA Reined Cow Horse under Kevin Stallings.  Her sire is the gorgeous and talented Reys From Heaven, although she did not inherit the roan colouring. 


Riley is a smart, spunky filly that we look forward to starting next year.  She has completed her ground work early and will now be out at pasture, being a young horse in the herd, until spring training resumes.

Riley Aug 22-1.jpg

Our 2022 Babies

These three will be available after weaning (mid December).  Our preference is for performance homes.  We would love to see El Nino remain intact and follow in his sire's footsteps in the competition ring.  All three are well put together, nicely mannered, healthy foals.  They have spent the summer together in a large pasture with their ever attentive dams building their athletic skills.

Nino Aug 22-2.jpg

El Nino, by BK Spark of Genius and out of SG Aech She Smart.  This is one splashy colt!  He is offerred for sale but strong preference for a performance home that will keep him intact.

Luna Aug 22-1.jpg

Luna, out of Truckin Lisa Marie (NMSU Truckin Chex) and by Cats Picasso.  She's smart and sassy and will likely be a dark chestnut like her dam.  She's already showing that winning attitude!

Pistol Aug 22-2.jpg

Pistol, by Hickory Hello and out of Purple Dual Rey (own grand-daughter of Dual Rey).  She's going to have some size along with her friendly attitude and athletic moves.
