We raise and sell Quarter Horses and tobiano Paints and with the speed, size, and trainable minds it takes to compete in today’s arena, track, and show pen. Our pedigrees stress the time-tested old names in speed and include Indians Image, Raise Your Glass, Rocket Wrangler, Dash for Cash, Jet Deck, Blushing Bugs, Easy Jet, Western Native, Look of Dreams, Possumjet, One Slick One, On A High, Shawne Bug, Firewater Flit — and those names are in the first and second generations, where they count! Our horses are raised in the badlands of eastern Montana — an ideal place to grow up! They learn to handle their feet and they build strong bones, feet, and muscle in our challenging environment. Have a look—and let us help you find your next winner!
We have several stallions including two very exciting additions in 2014. Two young stallions should be covering their first mares for us in 2015 – Ata Boy James by Ivory James and Famous Double Frost who is a grandson of both Sun Frost and Dash Ta Fame.
CCs Last Warrior is an own son of Leading Barrel Sire Dash For Perks. His dam, Charmin Cherokee was an exception barrel mare who won such rodeos as Odessa and San Angelo, TX before selling for $100K to Canada where she continued to win. Her only other foal is a CNFR qualifier, according to The Barrel Racing report. “Perks” as we call him could not have a better pedigree for our program. He’s a good looking, powerful horse with an astonishingly good disposition. His first foals arrive in 2015. If you want a really fancy barrel prospect consider his 2015 foals. They won’t get cheaper.
Perks is not standing to outside mares in 2015. We expect an exciting crop of 2015 foals by him and out of daughters of Firewaterontherocks, My Indian Money, and Raise Your Rocket.
Golden Slew is an own son of Triple Crown winner, Seattle Slew and out of a granddaughter of Mr. Prospector who was a G1 winner of over $500K. “Slew” is a stunning 16.3 horse who is as pretty and efficient a mover as a person want. He is excellant to handle and has a truly entertaining personality as a bonus.
We think Slew is the type of Thoroughbred that will make a real impact on QH and Paint mares. First, his conformation is outstanding. He is correct and solidly built. This is not a frail Thoroughbred! And, don’t forget that his pedigree, while famous for classic distances, is also solidly sprinter. Seattle Slew was bred to sprint and his first stakes win was a sprint – it just turned out he could win at any distance.
Golden Slew will stand to a select few, approved outside mares in 2015. Mares must be halter broke, broke to tie, and gentle to handle. Good mares of any breed are welcome. His 2015 stud fee is $1500.
Our Paint stallion, My Indian Money, is a 16.1 bay tobiano stakes placed winner and stakes placed sire. Money has been the cornerstone of our breeding program since 1999. His foals are succeeding on the track, in the barrel pen, and even as hunter/jumpers. They have the size, substance, speed and athletic ability to excel in many disciplines!
2015 Stud Fee: $1000 with considerations to performance or producing mares.

We were also proud to be the final home of the great Paint barrel horse sire, Raise Your Rocket. And own son of the immortal Thoroughbred sire Raise Your Glass and the Champion 2 Year old Paint Wranglin Kate, “Grandpa’s” pedigree was a who’s who of speed horses. That class came through in his foals – they are uniformly good-looking, smart, athletic and pretty-moving. They are also uniformly easy to sell and we will certainly miss him for that as well. However, he left us with a beautiful set of daughters out of very well bred mares. Our first foals out of his good daughters will start arriving in 2011 and we look forward to raising a lot of his grandsons and -daughters for years to come.
