We have carefully selected a band of broodmares that are proven mothers, who produce colts with great dispositions, confirmation, and personality. We are working on expanding our bloodlines, are constantly adding new mares to the band, and have out-crossed the mares with new stallions in order to grow our herd in the right direction for our program. We firmly believe in good mare power, and are working to cultivate that to the best of our ability.
Playboys Handle Bar
'Darlin' has been officially retired from her life as a show horse, and has transitioned beautifully into our broodmare band. She is an own daughter of Freckles Playboy, out of a Handle Bar Doc/Mr. Gun Smoke mare, is an NCHA Money Earner, and has earned her Certificate of Ability from the NCHA as well. Darlin is a very special mare to us, so to see her in this new role has been even more rewarding! She had a beautiful sorrel stud colt by Cat Ichi in 2016, and a beautful filly by High Brow CD for 2019. We can't wait to see what she produces as we move forward into making her one of the capstones of our revitalized program at the ranch.
Miss Smart Dual Rey
'Sweetness' has been officially added to our broodmare band in 2018. She is an own daughter of Dual Rey out of a daughter of Smart Little Lena. Sweetness is an NCHA money earner with very limited showing due to no fault of her own. We were pleasantly surprised by her Cats Moonshine filly in 2019. We are so anxious to see what kind of babies she will raise, as she's such a sweet tempered mare with such expression in front of a cow! We hope those are traits she passes on to her offspring.
Sabre High on Holly
'Holly' is a new addition to our herd. She came to us from Sabre Quarter Horse Ranch, is a daughter of their great stud, Blue Boy Doc and is out of a Sonita's Last mare. Holly has produced beautiful horses with versatility across disciplines, and we are anxious to see what she adds to our program! She produced beautiful sorrel colts in 2018 and 2019, and has been crossed with Alabama Snap again for 2020.
MICN Miss Jose
'Pepper', shown here in the middle, is one of our best producing mares. She is out of a daughter of Royal Silver King, and our original stud, MICN Moore and usually throws a pretty fancy looking colt, so we are always anxious to see what her foals will look like. She has crossed so well with Alabama Snap, producing some fancy looking bay stud colts, that we won’t try and cross her on anything else again. Cross your fingers… cross your toes… we need a filly in 2020!
MICN Dee Bar
'Willy Filly', a cleverly named daughter of Willows Moonglow and MICN Moore, is shown here with her chestnut 2016 filly colt out of Alabama Snap. She has given us the most incredible prospects, and we have crossed her one last time for a 2020 colt by Alabama Snap before she retires to a life of ease.
Jessies Last Lass
Tess was a spur of the moment decision to add to the broodmare band. She's a daughter of MICN Wranglers Lady (Lucy) and sired by Jessie Rae Royal, the stud Melissa's parents used on the ranch in their last years of breeding. After giving us two fancy stud colts in 2018 and 2019, she is open for 2020. We plan to cross her to OSR Golden Playboy, a palomino stud owned by Mike Smith for 2021.. may be this time we will get some color!
Fancy Sheza Doc
Fancy is an 11 year old mare out of Jessie Rae Royal and a broodmare from Melissa's dad's band named Fig Tree. She's incredibly athletic, and rides beautifully. We added her to the broodmare band out of curiousity, and that is where she will stay for us from here forward. Her 2019 filly is an absolute stunner and we couldn’t be more exciting.
