Breeding and raising outstanding Quarter Horses for barrel racing
We may be a small farm, but our produce is big in barrels
call us at 319-276-3511 for your next prospect
To create bloodlines that will consistently produce quality barrel horses in the way that the well known bloodlines of quarter horse racing, or more recently, cutting have done. We do this with an emphasis on temperament. We also try to have a number of barrel horses and prospects for sale at all times.
We do not believe that great speed indexes necessarily translate into great barrel horses. We do, however, believe that certain lines of race horses lend themselves to barrel racing extremely well because of their minds and athletic abilities. We also believe that of the rodeo horse bloodlines, which feature extreme quickness. Some lines blend with the racing blood better than others. In order to compete in barrel racing today it now requires the top speed of the best race horses combined with the exceptional athleticism and quickness of the rodeo horse.
In 2000 we wrote the following: "We believe that within five to ten years you will be able to look at extended pedigrees with barrel racing information including earnings and placings similar to that which is available for race horses now."
The industry is not there yet, but the statistics are accumulating and getting more available all the time.
How We Are Doing It
Our mares have included daughters of Marthas Six Moons, Rare Jet, Bugs Alive in 75, St Bar, Master Hand (TB), Fire Water Flit, Dr Nick Bar, Deal the Cards and Tommy De Great. Granddaughters of Lady Bugs Moon, Three Bars (TB), Jet Deck, Coup De Kas (TB), Easy Jet, Bold Chic, Special Effort, A Sharp Leo, Master Hand (TB), Vikingson (TB), Fleet Kirsch (TB) and Maudie Leo. These mares are selected for their performance, their minds, trainability, willingness and their bloodlines. Our mares performance records include AAA and AA ratings, AQHA performance points in barrels and pole bending, AQHA superior award in barrels, congress wins, futurity and derby wins and earnings, and NBHA 1D State Champions.
The stallions we breed them to are selected for the same reasons. We are using proven producing stallions here such as Fire Water Flit, Dr Nick Bar, Bully Bullion, Dash Ta Fame, Marthas Six Moons, and ones we think will be some of the sires of the future La Jollas Gold, Perks Master and Alive N Firen. We do not look for stallions that produce a flash in the pan or just once in a while. These stallions produce numbers of futurity and rodeo horses year after year. These stallions crossed with our quality mares will give you an excellent opportunity for an outstanding barrel horse. For more specifics on our mares and these stallions and more check "Our Mares" page and "Reference Stallions" page.
