Escaping the Heat

So now on to my favorite part of the year, Futurity time! My first show will be the Denver Summer Slide, I have been attending this event for 20 years.

Building Blocks

My plan for any horse at its first show is to make sure everything is a good experience, so I can build confidence and create building blocks.

Feed and Supplements

Hi all,

I want to spend sometime talking about my feed and supplement program. We have several companies we have worked with for many years that I am confident have played a crucial part in my horses' good health and well-being. Working together with Purina feed and Omega Alpha supplements, I keep my horses looking and feeling the best they can.

Show season is underway and I am so pleased with my group of 4-year-olds. I showed them for the first time at the Cactus Reining Classic and they all did well, earning good checks in their divisions.

January has been a month of organizing and preparing for the New Year. We take this time to get ready by organizing our paper books, renewing all of our memberships and making sure all of our paperwork is in order.

Hi All!

What a year it has been! We had an incredible NRHA Futurity with all three of my Pale Face Dunnit colts making the top 10, along with my wife's horse winning almost $50,000 in the Non-Pro. Many more of his foals showed well and had combined earnings of almost $188,000 at the Futurity!! This was a huge accomplishment as we bred, raised and trained all of the ones we showed. I want to take this opportunity to thank my family, staff and customers for all of your support. Without you, I would not be where I am.

Return From Congress

Hi All!

I just returned home from the All American Quarter Horse Congress, where my wife, Ginger, and I showed four futurity horses by Pale Face Dunnit that we bred and raised. Between the four of them, they brought home more than $36,000 in prize money. I am very proud of these horses and look forward to their futures in the show ring!

Summer is over, the kids are back in school and we are hitting the road for the futurities. Our next stop is Las Vegas for the High Roller Reining Classic, where we will show both our 3-year-olds and our derby horses.

We are at the National Reining Horse Association Derby in Oklahoma City! So far the weather has been pretty good. We are all set up and ready to show. I only brought one horse to show in the Derby as we had the opportunity to sell several of my others.
