No exhibitions and first step ever into this pen he was solid middle of the 2D with lots to fix. Congrats to Top Gun Lisa Nicholas with another amazing run on Stoli My Guy, who topped 336 of the baddest in TX. He was again a total gentleman and cool as a cucumber waiting for his turn to run.

Thursday, Oct 10, 2019: Ranger went last Monday to Weatherford Equine Breeding Center to learn to be collected and for semen evaluation. He was well behaved and semen quality is excellent. I picked him up Thursday at Noon and drove back to Abilene. Turned him out for 2 hours and then reloaded him and headed for a jackpot at Clyde TX. His attitude was calm and pleasant as always. He was a model "gelding" at the jackpot, and warmed up so quiet I thought he was exhausted from being at the breeding project. I decided to let him coast/run at his own pace as my mission for the night was to test his demeanor after breeding. He flat walked up to the alley, and then dropped the hammer running a 17.752 behind Jan Burns with a 17.634 and Pam Deaver with a 17.751, both on their good horses. His time would have been 3rd in the 1D but his hip caught the second barrel leaving as I think he was a bit stiff in the shoulders from mounting the phantom. He cooled calmly and loaded gladly to head home. I cannot over state what a joy this horse is for me. I am so blessed.
Many references readily available to tell you about the temperament on this stallion. He is a gentleman and a joy to be around. We have only entered him a handful of times due to family matters. This horse loves to turn a barrel. He is dead quiet until you ask him to run, and then he will fire very nicely. Not stud lazy, just a quiet willing mind. I run him in a Bozo side-pull and he is very light. I rarely exhibition him. If you are looking for good feet and bone, he is your guy. His feet are hard and grow down without flaring or chipping. He has a wonderful natural cup to his soles which holds the ground. We run him barefoot and my husband shoes. He is 5 Panel Negative.
Stallion fee $900 – We will certainly give considerations for direct daughters of top proven stallions, and also for mares who have themselves performed as 1D or rodeo earners in competitive markets/circuits. I have a specific list of maternal sires that I am offering for $450 as we need foals out there. Contact me and I will send you the list.
