Video 2) September 22, 2020 - 72 head. Ranger ran a 15.967 to win with just 4 others in 1D and the next closest time Patty Clark with a 16.238 on her awesome Dashin Bob. Thanks to all my fellow racers who have watched him grow up and cheered him on. I am blessed. Oh, and thanks to Jamie Pritchard for amazing video and commentary.
Video 3) September 6, 2020 - West Texas Fair and Rodeo jackpot. He was 16th in the 1D with a 16.657 out of around 240. The 1D included some of my all time favorite horses, including Jackie Ganter's Howes A Tycoon 16.175, Smoken Lane 16.506, and Guys French Jet 16.616; and Crystal Love Nichols NB Ladybird 16.583. I am so tickled that our Ranger is in the hunt with horses I have been in awe of. Beyond blessed.
Many references readily available to tell you about the temperament on this stallion. He is a gentleman and a joy to be around. He is still lightly hauled for an 8yo, as we were very busy this spring hauling him 4 hours round trip for each collection at Weatherford Equine Breeding Center. I tried to run some during breeding season and he did very well . His first crop was born this year and they are really stamped with beautiful heads and big apple bootys like their dad. We got awesome mares bred this year including daughters of Stoli, Chasin Firewater, Perks Alive, Hollywood Vintage, Bullys On Fire, and Mr Sun Olena.
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 give considerations for direct daughters of top proven stallions, multiple breedings, and also for mares who have themselves performed as 1D or rodeo earners in competitive markets/circuits. I will honor live foal guarantee for up to 1 week of age on the foal as so many die after the stand and nurse clause standard in the industry. If we breed your mare it is because we want a foal out of your mare out in the industry.

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.
