We raise 10 to 14 colts a year,
with the emphasis on quality not quantity. We were lucky enough to
start out with a world-class stallion in
Frosty and have been evolving our program
ever since. We strive for performance horses and have had success
in cutting, reined cow horses and all rodeo events (except
roughstock) with horses competing at the NFR and
have a CNFR breakaway National Champion.
We raise horses with good bones and feet. They are
"using" horses with speed and agility, cow sense, and dispositions that
a pro or a novice horseman can get along with. They are built strong to
last and to do the tough jobs. No matter what
you want your new horse to do for you, we have the right
horse to fit your program.
These horses must all make
good ranch or pleasure horses first and,
for that, they must have good feet and bone and have enough
substance to tackle any job. The colts are born at the ranch
headquarters and stay there until the
mares are bred and are trailed to the Mountain where they are weaned
in September. The mares, yearlings, two-year
olds and any extra saddle horses are left there until December if
the snow permits. This is rough, steep, rocky country and these
horses learn early how to travel and keep their feet under them.
We start the colts at two but don't ask much until they are
four. They have to be athletic enough to perform at the highest
level and still be dependable and safe when turned out for six
months or even a year. This is a working cattle ranch first and
foremost, with the emphasis on cow work.
These horses are exposed to
all kinds of work, in all kinds of conditions and some of it can be
very challenging. We sell horses of all ages, but genetics aside,
this environment and work background is
what has created such a strong demand for our broke horses.

We have several promising colts that may
fit your needs.
