1 } BUSTER — 2005 ROAN PINTO GELDING. Sire: Belgian draft stallion. Dam: Missouri Fox Trotter mare.
This is a big, stout, good-looking gelding. Buster stands 16 hands and weighs about 1450#. He has excellent bone, straight legs, a good back and a lot of muscle. He is gaited with a natural Fox Trot that he got from his registered Missouri Fox Trotter mother. He will walk flat footed so he can ride with Quarter Horses, etc and he can be gaited out and travel fast with other gaited horses. He DOES NOT trot and canters out when asked. This is a strong gelding that can carry a big rider all day. He has easily and safely carried 250# – 300# riders all day. He has really good legs and feet. He should stay sound forever.
He has great manners. He loads, ties, shoes, hauls without a single problem ever. He is an easy keeper and easy to keep. He will stand quietly behind a single strand of hot wire.
He is an absolutely solid trail horse. He has perfect manners and will go anywhere for any rider. He is sound and healthy and ready to go.
2} BUCKSHOT — 6 Year old dark buckskin gelding. Sire: Drifter (AQHA War Chiefs Pride). Dam: A quarter Pony mare that we used for several years for children for lessons. Full brother to BUBBA (number 4 below).
He, like his brother, is home-raised, very gentle and easy to get along with. He has been ridden by several different people and has worked well for all of them. He has a little bigger motor than his little brother and is bigger — just over 15 hands. [So much for raising Quarter Ponies! Call it a failed experiment.] He is not yet as ‘finished’ as most of the trail horses we sell because Cheri can no longer train them due to severe back problems. He still rides ‘two-handed’ but goes everywhere, is sure footed and very confident. He will ‘booger’ sometimes but is not hard to ride. He is a very ‘aware’ horse and not a dead-head so may not fit a beginner rider. The 75 year old rider shown here has ridden him many miles in rugged country. He is big, sound and solid and can carry a big rider every single day — all day. He has the best feet and bone you can put on a horse. His price will also go up as he gets more ‘handle’ and gets to work cattle.
3} FLASHY BLUES — 2013 Bay Filly — SIRE: CALL HIM THE FLASH (Colonel Freckles / Doc Bar / Zan Parr Bar breeding) with AQHA reining points. DAM: Elegant Blues – Own daughter of Bart Bartender, World Show qualified with AQHA Points in 5 events. Her dam also had AQHA reining and cowhorse points.
This is ‘LEFTY’, a good looking bay filly with excellent conformation, sound and very correct in every way. She is named ‘Lefty’ because of her partial white pastern on her left front leg. This is the only easy way to tell her from her 3/4 sister, RIGHTY, listed below.
Lefty is a very well-made attractive mare with excellent conformation. She is absolutely correct and sound in every way.
Lefty was ridden quite a bit last year. She was ridden another month this year by professional horseman, Ben Wright (who starts many colts for NRCHA trainers). She rides very gentle and is easy to get along with. She has had a lot of ranch riding out in the pasture as well as arena riding. She is a good mover, smooth gaited and athletic. She is a very good ‘Extreme Trail’ or AQHA ‘Trail Challenge’ prospect. She is very suitable for a ‘project horse’ for the novice trainer / rider. She is laid back, easy going and ‘user friendly’. She could take a rider ‘all the way’ in the AQHA Ranch division, the ranch or stock horse shows or the foundation shows. the AQHA ranch division, the Stock Horse shows or the Foundation Shows. She is a natural ‘stopper’. She is shod and currently being trail ridden in the Arbuckle Mountains by one of our apprentice trainers. She has gone endless trail miles in very rough country with her, by herself and with other horses. She rides like she is 5 or 6 years old. She is priced very reasonably at $3500.00 before further training.
3-B} FLASHIN LADY –2013 Bay Filly — CALL HIM THE FLASH (Colonel Freckles / Doc Bar / Zan Parr Bar breeding) with AQHA reining points. DAM: Lady Blue Drifter. She is sired by ‘Drifter’ and is out of Elegant Blues by Bart Bartender.
This is ‘RIGHTY’, a good looking bay filly with excellent conformation, sound and very correct in every way. She is named ‘Righty’ because of her partial white pastern on her right front leg. This is the only easy way to tell her from her 3/4 sister, LEFTY, listed above.
Righty is a very well-made attractive mare with excellent conformation. She is absolutely correct and sound in every way.
She is also very well-started and rides gentle but has a bit bigger motor and makes some very athletic moves. She already has a pretty good ‘turn-around’ and is a nice reining, cowhorse prospect for the ranch and Foundation shows or a nice roping prospect. She is also smooth gaited and a natural ‘stopper’. She was started last year. Then, she was ridden a month by Ben Wright, professional trainer that starts many colts for NRC?HA trainers. She is now being ridden on the trails in the Arbuckle Mountains by one of our apprentice trainers. She is already a very nice trail horse and a good ‘pasture’ horse for checking fences and cattle. She is very suitable for someone that is a pretty experienced rider to take on as a ‘project horse’. She is not quite as laid back as Lefty, but is safe and not ‘bronchy or spooky at all.
We would really like to see this nice young mare go to a show home. She is a show prospect. She is priced very reasonably at $3500.00 before further training.
3} CLASSY GOOD GIRL — 1997 Gray Mare . Sire: Classical Silver. (reference sire) Dam: Jackies Good Girl, granddaughter of Doc Clabber by Doc Bar and Padre Sonoita by Dick Sonoita. ‘Jackie’ was a cutting money winner and used for several years as a top ranch and roping mare..
This beautiful 15.1 hand mare is a very solid trail horse. She will go anywhere you point her head. She is safe for an experienced child but has a lot of ‘go’ in her when you need it. She is 100% sound and gentle but has a pretty big motor. You can ride her 20 miles a day every day and she is waiting to go again tomorrow or you can rider once every 6 months without a problem. She has impeccable manners. You would never guess that she is 19 years old. She was ridden in our trail rides for several years and bred again. Good Girl has been one of our best producers. Her foals all really ride and ‘Cow’. Good Girl had a gorgeous 2005 Palomino filly by a son of Dunit It With A Twist. She had another really good looking filly by him in 2013 and a palomino colt by him in 2015. She is open and being ridden now, but will breed again if you want to raise more foals from her. She has always conceived on her first and only breeding every year that she has been bred. She is a very good broodmare weaning the biggest foal every year. SOLD
4} BUBBA — A 5 year old Dun Gelding. Sire: Drifter (AQHA War Chiefs Pride). Dam: A quarter Pony mare that we used for several years for children for lessons. Full brother to BICKSHOT (number 2 above).
He is home-raised, very gentle and easy to get along with. He has been ridden by several different people and has worked well for all of them. He is not yet as ‘finished’ as most of the trail horses we sell because Cheri can no longer train them due to severe back problems. He still rides ‘two-handed’ but goes everywhere, seldom ever spooks at all and never spooks ‘big’. He is 14.2 1/2. [A tiny bit too tall or register in the Quarter Pony Registry. Did I mention that this was a failed experiment?] He is pretty, very well made, completely sound and really gentle. His black dorsal stripe, jet black mane and tail and zebra stripes make him a real eye-catcher. He is a really SOLID trail horse. His price will go up when we are able to get him ‘finished’ with more handle on him. This is a really cute gelding.
Priced right now at $3000.00
5} FLASHY DRIFTIN ZAN — shown below.
5} FLASHY DRIFTIN ZAN –2007 Dun Filly (Incentive Fund Nominated) — Sire: Call Him The Flash (Colonel Freckles / Doc Bar / Zan Parr Bar breeding) with AQHA reining points. Dam: A very good looking dun mare sired by War Chiefs Pride (Drifter) Double bred Driftwood horse that has conformation & ability.
Driftin Zan is very well started. She has had 2 or 3 years of trail riding experience but still does not have a great handle on her. We still consider her rather ‘green’. She is another horse that we raised and started and that has never bucked or made a mistake. We do not think horses should need to be ‘warmed up’ or longed before they can be ridden. When we start them, we train them to just stand quietly for saddling and mounting and they just ride right off. This pretty young mare rides like that. Anyone can catch her, saddle her, bridle her, climb on and ride off. She has been in traffic, around cattle (is ready to start working cattle now) and has been ridden in the roughest country in the Arbuckle Mountains. She, too, rides equally well in a large group and rides just as well off by herself. She loads, hauls, ties, bathes, shoes, you name it. She goes absolutely anywhere you point her head.
UPDATE — She pulled a ligament high in her hip last year during all the rain and mud. She was still traveling a little ‘off’ in that hind leg so she was bred for a year off. The Vet thinks she will be OK after foaling. She is still for sale but with full disclosure. She was bred to a son of Dun It With A Twist and just had a gorgeous dun filly in April, 2016. She appears sound, but we do not know that she will be 100% OK later with hard riding and are selling her that way. We have so many, she will probably be bred later this spring if she is still here. She and her filly are pictured below. The filly is 6 hours old and was born as straight and strong as she appears here.
She is for sale with her foal right now for $5000.00
