We, at S Heart Horses, are in the business of breeding colts with the bloodlines that gives them the potential to be performance horses. Generally speaking, we do not show or compete in rodeo events, (we leave that up to you) but we breed the horses that will. This has been proven many times over by the evidence that most of our colts that have been sold over the last 25 or so years are proven performance horses—-ranching, roping, reining, showing, and more. We have strong roping genetics in our mares and stallion with many of the colts going to ropers who compete and use the horses on the ranch as well. We also have been developing the genetics that we are confident that will be attractive to barrel racers by crossing cow and speed genetics to develop colts that have cow sense, but can really run. We are looking for barrel racers who are interested in helping us prove that for a very reasonable cost!
Our colts have been sold to people who use them—-a good ranch horse is one that can do it all. He/she needs to have cow sense, be fast enough to outrun a cow, quiet enough to sort pairs, gentle enough for almost anyone to ride, drag calves to the branding fire, doctor calves in the pasture, and then go to the show arena—-reining, roping, barrel racing, or whatever your passion is. Our horses have the disposition that allows young people in the 4-H program to start a colt and continue with that horse through maturity. The horses are athletic and intelligent and bred to perform.
Our stallion, Mr Tardy Roller, has been our primary stallion for many years, and his sire, Freckles Priority, for years before that. You can read all about him on our website, www.s-hearthorses.com or our sale site, www.horsesofthewest.com on our Breeder page. In 2012 Tardy was with 18 mares and they will be foaling in late May/early June. There will be lots to pick from this year! We will be posting them on our web sites as they are born. Some of them will be sold with their dams, as we will be having a partial dispersal this summer. The mares are too well bred not to produce colts, so we are planning to sell them at reasonable prices to breeders who are looking for good mares to add to their herd.
In 2011 we bred three mares to Print It Hot as a test. He passed with flying colors. Accompanying this news flash are pictures of the 2012 fillies when they were young foals. In 2012 we bred 18 mares to him. We are anxiously waiting for his first foals this year starting in late March. Print It Hot is owned by Kim and Tom Cohn (our daughter and son in law) and he is just beginning his barrel racing training this Spring. We provide the good mares—-many are cow bred and some are cow/speed bred—and they provided the stallion power. If his 2012 fillies are any indication, his 2013 foals should be Hot! Print It Hot is the son of Hot On My Heels and goes back to Go Man Go on his top side. You can read more about his pedigree and characteristics on our web sites sited above.
