Our handsome boys are two of those we have from our Rocki stud and full brothers. Stetson is the first foal of Rocki, and has been the mainstay of the herd for years, while Resistol has held the title of Best Cow Horse. Unfortunately early in 2019 we lost Resistol. He will forever be in our hearts.
Named by Naccona when she was a little bitty girl, Big O, as she has come to be known as, moved over here with us as part of the old herd. She's big girl that has helped us pack out game, move cows, and serve as a saddle horse.
Sunrise is out of Caseys Spider, an old mare that we moved over with who was DeeDee's horse Squirt's dam. Spidey and Squirt have since passed on, but Sunrise is here as Skyler's main mount and eye catcher of the herd.
Snips is the first horse Naccona trained and has been a wonderful boy to have around. She's shown him in everything under the sun, with both her and other people using him, and has helped teach many people to ride.
R.I.P our beloved Buttons
Originally purchased as our second stud prospect, Easy, is also from Open Box Rafter Ranch! With Colonel Freckles and Easy Jet as his maternal great grand-sires and Dr Nick Bar, sire of Sugar Moon Express (Martha) and Flos Heiress (Babyflo) both World Champion Barrel Horses, as his Paternal Grandsire, Easy has some fantastic lines!
Sundance was Naccona's AQHA Young Horse Development Program filly. Donated by Open Box Rafter Ranch in South Dakota, she has shown what 50 years of breeding can do! Well on her way to becoming an all around saddle and kids horse, Sundance is currently in training and has been shown the last year on the Eastern Montana Horse Show Circuit.
Shilo is off of Tom Shilo's place in North Dakota. A gift from David to DeeDee (Mom and Dad), she has proven to be a phenomenal mare with the possibility of becoming Dillon's next horse!
Also from Tom Shilo's place, Tommy was bought from a friend and is half sibling to Shilo. He will be added to the herd as a saddle horse, one that Skyler hopes to show.
The most recent addition to the herd! Naccona bought Monte to use in the stockyards and eventually become a broodmare. Originally from the Stearns Ranch in North Dakota, Monte comes to us with some amazing lines including Watch Joe Jack, Harlan, and Alamitos Bar.
Another Open Box Rafter Ranch horse! Wily will eventually go on DeeDee's saddle string as a gelding. He was originally going to be registered, but after a DNA test, Hunt's discovered that they did not know who his dam's sire was after all. However, his sire is none other than Mi Cisco Frost, a 7/8 sibling to our own Cisco Mr Trouble, who's pedigree includes Sun Frost, Frenchman's Guy, Azure Te, and numerous old foundation horses. His dam's bottom lines include Wilywood, an own son of Orphan Drift, as well as Poco Pine.
