We have a wide variety of stallions. From ranch/rope sires to cutting/reining, we have a little bit of everything. We're not afraid to cross the ranch/rope horses with our cutting/reining horses to add some of that good foundation quarter horse bone back into the cutting/reining horses either. We feel not only do they get some added body and confirmation but also make them a well rounded prospect that really can go do anything asked of them.
MM BLUE RICOCHET
“Rico” is a 2013 AQHA “true” blue roan stallion. He is 5 panel N/N and a solid 15.2 hands. We purchased Rico as a weanling from Moose Mountain Ranch’s production sale. Rico's sire, Ricochet Black (Drifts Chip x Tontos Tiki), was bred at the 6666 Ranch and has produced ranch and rope horses. Rico himself was started but suffered a hoof injury leaving him behind in training while he healed up. Rico’s disposition is very gentle and affectionate. His foals are taking on his disposition of being good minded, affectionate, easy going and SMART. Every one we’ve worked with after weaning has been easy going and picks up everything very quick. Rico's first foal crop hit the ground in 2017. We are excited to see what his foals go on to do in the years to come.

Cat is a grandson of Rowdy Blue Man (Blue Valentine) on his sire’s side and Wyo Blue Bonnet (Leo Hancock Hayes) on his dam’s side. Hancock horses are known best for their grit and go-all-day work ethic. These horses are built to last. Cat and his foals are no different. So far, Cat has sired black, grulla, sooty buckskin and roan foals. Cat has the typical disposition of the LHH/BV horses. He’s not only a gentle soul, but has that big, beautiful, black frame, complete with good feet and an even better mind.
In his younger years, Rowdy Blue Man was used in the arena for steer roping. Wyo Blue Bonnet left his mark on breeding programs across the country.
Leo Hancock Hayes helped shape his sire, Blue Valentine’s legacy. Most of his foals have been used as ranch or rodeo horses.

Bar Star Danger, a 2002 son of LHH has points in tie-down and breakaway roping. He qualified for the AQHA world show in Junior Tie-down roping and earned his ROM in 2006. Blue Fox Hancock, another son of LHH, has AQHA points in Working Cow Horse and Heeling. He earned his AQHA Open Performance ROM in 2007. Bar Star Sadie and Pros Velvet Seven both have points in tie-down roping as well.
During Blue Valentine’s lifetime he was not only a sire but a rodeo horse including being roped on at Cheyenne Frontier Days. He spent his time back and forth between Arizona and Wyoming rodeo and breeding seasons. He was roped off and ranched on, a true cowboy’s horse. He was even barrel raced on, taking third at the annual Casper, Wyoming pro-rodeo. He was voted top ten ranch sires in AQHA history by Western Horseman Magazine (October 2007).

Magneticat (Metallic Cat x Wanda Rey) won the Montana Reining Cowhorse Derby and placed in the Utah Reining Cowhorse Derby and made the finals in several other derbies in 2016.

He recently became the fourth horse in history to sire the earners of more than $40 million, including closed incentives. Metallic Cat was able to achieve that honor the fastest of the 4 horses with eight show-age foal crops. The only three Western performance stallions whose offspring have won more money than him are his sire, all-time leader High Brow Cat ($85.4 million), Dual Rey ($47.7 million) and Smart Little Lena ($42.5 million).

Don’t let that height scare you, our mares are crossing extremely well on Patron and his foals are hanging right with the biggest of them at our place.

LCB DRIFTWOOD PRINCE
“Prince” is a 2001 AQHA buckskin stallion. He is 5 panel N/N and 15.3 hh. Prince was born on the ranch. His coloring and size have garnered him admirers over the years. Not only is Prince passing his beauty onto his foals, but they are also smart, correct and easy to work with. Prince like Sonny is being bred on a limited basis. The opportunity to own a son/daughter of Prince is slimming down.
ITS SONNY PINE BAR
"Sonny" was purchased by Grandpa Soren out of Spencer, Nebraska as a 2 year old. Sonny is 15.2 and 5 panel N/N. He has consistently sired beautifully headed colts with good bone and stocky structure. He leaves his mark on his foals whether it be their beautiful confirmation or his laid back personality. He has produced many wonderful ranch/rope working horses as well as ranch versatility and trail partners. His babies can go out and work but are also refined enough for the show pen. Sonny's a client favorite as he's brought clients back on several occasions. We've kept back 3 of his sons to keep his beautiful good-natured lineage in our breeding program. Two of which are expecting their second foal crops in 2021. You'll also find we have a good foundation of Sonny daughters & granddaughters in our broodmare band. We breed Sonny on a very limited basis now so the opportunity to own a son/daughter of him is almost non-existenet.
Sonny is of old-school show horse lines. If you know the basis of our program, you'll know we keep our Grandpa Soren's prized Saltys Devil 5 lines in our breeding program to this day as well.
Sonny is a grandson of Sonny Dee Bar, show horse & successful sire.

TLJ SONNY SALTY BEAU
"Los" better known as "Squeaker" is a 2016 AQHA red roan son of our beloved Sonny. He is 5 panel N/N and a very stout 14.3 hh young stallion. Squeaker had a rough start in life. Baldy, his dam passed shortly after foaling and we were left to mother him. We vowed to do whatever it took to see him through and we did. He picked up his nickname,Squeaker,during those late night bottle feedings. You can't tell now that he was ever an orphan. He is a thick horse much like his great grandsire Salty.
With Squeaker, you could say we stuck to tradition. We got the best of both worlds with him being a son of Sonny as well as him being a great grandson of Grandpa's beloved Salty.
These stallions may no longer be with us but still influence our broodmare band as well as our stallion prospects today and will continue to do so. Gone but never forgotten.
MIGHTY MAN OTOE
"Pinky" was a 2004 AQHA Perlino stallion. He was 5 panel N/N and 15.2 hands. He was bred and born here. Eventually, finding his place as one of our sires. We made the very hard decision to lay Pinky to rest in 2020 due to declining health. During his time, he gave us some of the most beautiful, correct and obviously colored foals we could've ever asked for. We have several of his daughters in our broodmare band. He enabled us to cross our oldest bloodline Saltys Devil 5, typically known to be sorrels, chestnuts and bays, and get guaranteed buckskins, palominos, and duns to diversify our ranch/rope horses. Many of his offspring have gone on to be using horses on ranches as well as trusted rope horses,trail partners and even barrel racers.
"Dual" was a 2005 AQHA blue roan stallion. He was 14.2hh and 5 panel N/N. We lost Dual unexpectedly in early 2019. We purchased Dual out of California in 2014 where he had been a finished cutter. In the short time that we had the pleasure of having him here with us, he gave us some smart and beautiful foals. We have a select group of daughters that have been added to our broodmare band as well as young son we're currently growing up. Dual had a lovable personality and was known to come running up to us in the pasture and long stay past his mares moving on. Dual's foals have proven to be versatile so far not only as cowhorses but in chasing barrels as well.
Dual is a son of Duals Blue Boon, LTE $210,000 (Dual Pep, LTE $313,192, PE $28.5 M+ x Royal Blue Boon, LTE $ 381,764, PE $2 M+) and out of Doc Sugs Royal Miss, LTE $16K (Doc's Sug, NCHA money-earner x Royal Princess Miss).
AUTUMN BOON DOC
"Boon" was a 2013 AQHA bay roan stallion. Boon was 14.2 hh and 5 panel N/N. We acquired Boon at the same time as Pepto. In 2017, we bred a handful of mares to Boon. Boon suffered an injury mid-winter after his first breeding season and after some mending, he re-injured himself furthering the damage to the point that we had to make the difficult decision to lay him to rest. That following spring we had 5 stunning foals from him. We retained one filly and two stud colts. One of the stud colts will be listed shortly as we are keeping the other for a stallion prospect.
Boon is by Autumnator, unshown due to injury (Smart Little Lena, AQHA Hall of Fame, NCHA Triple Crown Champion, LTE $ 743,275, PE $ 43.4M+ x Autumn Boon LTE $258,185, PE $1.9 M+) x HA Sienas Dual Doc (Nitro Dual Doc, LTE $53,826 x Sienna Tari, LTE $16,574).
"Lil Dual" was a 2017 AQHA blue roan stallion. He was 14.2 hands and 5 panel N/N. Lil Dual was a homegrown we had sold as a weanling. When we unexpectedly lost Dual, we decided to purchase Lil Dual back mid 2019 as a 2 year old to fill Dual's void in our program. Little did we know his time with us would be short as well. He passed away during the night shortly after finishing his first & only breeding season in 2020. We are expecting 5 foals in 2021.

SALTY SONNY PINE
“Pine” was a 2002 red roan AQHA stallion. Pine was 15-15.1hh and 5 panel N/N. He was a son of our Sonny. We bought him in hopes of him taking Sonny's place later on in our breeding program as well as bringing in Grandpa Soren's beloved, Salty Devil 5 bloodline, up closer among our herd from the stallion side. Pine bred his first herd of mares with us in 2015. Pine had such a laid-back personality that we decided to send him off for a riding tune-up where he immediately got sick at the trainer's. We ended up losing him after a stay in the nearby equine hospital.
