Some of our ranch remuda.
Twister, a black gelding
by Midnight Bullit, a black paint stallion we, unfortunately, had to geld
early on due to having too many stallions at the ranch. As an after thought
- a big mistake, because he and his son Twister are two of the best ranch
horses we own, tall build, big boned, and great dispositions.
Flash, a sorrel gelding by
Docs Sabre Glo, the sire of many of our good broodmares.
Amigo, a gray gelding by
MB Smart Smokey, who can also be found in the blood lines of many of our
A hot day in July. Our saddle
and broodmare prospects enjoy a swim in the lake.

of the horses back to the ranch.
Her rides Cherry, a sorrel
gelding by our bay stallion Dualin With Cows.
Coming home are
- saddle horse Whiskey, a
brown gelding by Plenty O Paddys Lena.
- saddle horse Pablo, a Peppy
San / Utopian Wix bred gray gelding who had a very promising first foal
crop but was gelded due to having too many stallions at the ranch. Truth
to be hold - every good stallion makes an even better gelding when it comes
to using horses.

2013 buckskin filly by Dualin With Cows and

Tee Bar Jeep (sorrel),
and Ame Go Red Glo (chestnut).
Our broodmare prospects,
all half sisters by a Doc Olena bred stallion. Except the chestnut with
the big star and snip, she slipped in this group. This is Cowgirl Up Smartie
who, at least, shares a grandfather (Mr Sun O Lena) with the other mares.

Spike - 2013 APHA stud colt,
in halter training with my nephew who is visiting from Germany. Obviously
he doesn't take his job very seriously :-)
Two Step - 2001 gray gelding,
stands only about 14 hands, a sometimes stubborn little bugger who gets
along with everybody - but the roping dummy ;-)
Silver - 2012 gray Half-Arabian
stud colt. His half brother had me impressed so much with his smarts that
I purchased this little guy when he came up for sale, to see if the smarts
are from the sires side. They sure are!
Dancer - 2008 dunskin gelding.
He stands about 16 hands, sure a tall horse. He was used as a ranch horse
since he was broke, working cattle, brandings, doctoring, you name it,
he's done it. Most cowboys prefer a horse with a lot of go, while Dancer
is more on the laid back side, not lazy but also not high strung. This
is why his owner traded him in for a higher energy horse from us.
We use Dancer at the ranch,
most anybody can ride him and push cows around with him.
Dancer will be for sale
later this fall.
Picasso - smartest horse
I ever worked with. He is by a purebred Arabian out of a speed bred APHA
mare. Someone would think that produces a very high strung horse - wrong
thinking. He is very easy to work with. Unfortunately life is getting away
with us, he had a ride on him in the roundpen, but no further training
Smoking Hot Roxy (2012 AQHA
filly), Picasso (2010 AHA gelding), and Silver (2012 AHA stallion) check
out their new toy.

||Horses in the Lake Pasture
(dry broodmares and young horses). The Lake Pasture has very rough, rocky
footing and teaches the young ones to become very surefooted.
Riding horses in their winter
pasture, fully visible here Red, Scrupino and Babina. Cowboy Tav makes
a head count.
Mac - 2004 APHA gelding.
He stands about 15.3 hands but looks like 17 - a huge horse with a lot
of energy. He is my personal saddle horse - not the kind of horse for many
riders, we have an agreement who controls whom, this agreement falls apart
even if shared with experienced other riders.
You think you can fly? Ride
this horse ... :-)
Too Foxy - 1994 APHA gelding
Foxy was a life insurance
of a horse, equally great for beginners pushing cows as for cowboys getting
the work done. He was the one the bottom of the pecking order in the herd,
yet he was a breeding stud with his own band of mares until he was gelded
as a 6year old. He had an accident that deformed his left eye, a cut in
his ear, and his coloring was not to everybodies taste, thus he was referred
to as "Heike's ugly paint" at the ranch. But when a crew of Chicago photographers
came out to ask to borrow a horse for their next motorcycle calender -
they picked Foxy out of a herd of twentyfive horses - go figure.
Foxy passed away way too
early due to colic complications.
