About Us

Near Big Sandy, Montana,

 Our horses graze pastures all year long inside barbed and high tinsel wire and run in rough, rocky and flat terrain. We have extreme weather: very cold in the winter and very hot in the summer and these horses withstand both extremes every year.

Our stallions possess good feet and legs, good dispositions, speed, agility and good looks.  We strive to establish excellence in a working horse; stamina, eye appeal, talent, and substance.  We use performance bred stallions and cross them to raise serious performance and ranch horse prospects. Our broodmares complement our stallions.  Our mares must have pretty feminine heads, friendly dispositions, good minds, good withers, feet bone, legs and size.

Our cattle run in big pastures year round and thrive on the forage grown on the ranch. The cows calve in May and June and wean in December.  The cows also winter on their own and are fed very little supplement. The cattle are rotated often through many pasture paddocks to fully utilize the forage and mimic the grazing habits of a migrating herd.

We have a strong conservation ethic on this ranch and work very hard to enhance the natural beauty of the area.  Our goal is to produce forage while building soils and clean water in a sustainable manner.  We strive to be good stewards of God's creation.

So come on in and gaze at our broodmaresstallions, and sale horses. If you are wanting to look at some beautiful horses, this is the place to look. 

Ranch Raised Performance American Quarter Horses

Our stallions and mares throw colors of black, brown, bay, roans, buckskins, and palominos.

Come! Take a closer look.

The doors are always opened to take a closer look.  Give us a call, we'd love to have you see our horses for yourself.
