The objective of Wagonhound Land and Livestock’s horse breeding program is to raise high-quality ranch horses for both our own cowboys’ use and that of the public. The strong, well-proven quarter horse pedigrees within our breeding program not only support this goal, but also routinely produce ranch horses and performance horses for sale with the ability and talent to compete successfully in the most prestigious cutting, reining, reined cow horse and ranch competitions.
Wagonhound’s broodmare band is anchored by some of most famous mares in the industry, such as all-time leading reined cow horse producer KINGS MASTERPIECE; all-time leading cutting money-earner LITTLE TENINA, winner of the NCHA Open Futurity, Derby, Classic and Finals; NCHA World Champion producer A SMART LITTLE GAL; all-time leading cutting producer TASSA MIA, whose foals include an NCHA Super Stakes Open Classic Champion and an NCHA World Champion, and numerous other highly bred individuals.
A number of Wagonhound mares are own daughters of some of the breed’s most legendary sires and broodmare sires, including the #1 all-time leading cutting broodmare sire SMART LITTLE LENA; #4 all-time leading cutting broodmare sire PEPPY SAN BADGER; #1 all-time leading cutting sire HIGH BROW CAT; #1 all-time leading reining and reined cowhorse broodmare sire SHINING SPARK; #5 leading reined cowhorse broodmare sire GRAYS STARLIGHT; #3 all-time leading reining broodmare sire SMART CHIC OLENA; top ten leading cutting sire PLAYGUN; #1 leading reined cowhorse sire and #1 reining maternal grandsire SHINING SPARK; and PEPTOBOONSMAL, the current #3 cutting and #5 reined cowhorse sire.
These mares are currently being crossed on Wagonhound’s own stallions: NCHA Open Finals Champion WR THIS CATS SMART, earner of more than $236,000 and a 2010 Top 10 Leading Sire in the NCHA and NRCHA with his first foals to show! A ranch horse cross favored by the Wagonhound cowboys is Potter Ranch’s famous PRCA stallion PC FRENCHMANS HAYDAY (“Dinero”), earner of more than $350,000 in PRCA events and the #1 sire at the 2009 NFR. This infuses the blood of the Driftwood family through SUN FROST, the #6 Leading Paternal Sire of Barrel Horses, siring nine-time Barrel Horse of the Year “BOZO” (French Flash Hawk) and the #2 Leading Barrel Sire of the decade FRENCHMANS GUY, whose foals have earned more than $1.7 million.
Today’s most fashionable cutting and reined cowhorse bloodlines from other ranches are also being infused into the Wagonhound bloodlines through such prominent stallions as NCHA Horse of the Year METALLIC CAT, earner of $637,000; NCHA Horse of the Year REYS DUAL BADGER, earner of $313,000; NRCHA Open Futurity Champion and World’s Greatest Horseman Reserve Champion CHICS MAGIC POTION, earner of $314,000; leading reined cowhorse and NRCHA Supreme Reined Cowhorse PLAYBOYS BUCK FEVER; NRCHA star A SHINER NAMED SIOUX, earner of nearly $100,000; the top 20 leading cutting sire CATS MERADA, earner of nearly $178,000; history’s first AQHA World Champion Versatility Ranch Horse, SIXES PICK; and the NCHA’s #2 leading sire of 2009, DUAL REY. Wagonhound is also a syndicate member with lifetime breeding rights to the 2009 NCHA OPEN FUTURITY CHAMPION ROCKIN W.
Wagonhound horses of all ages are generally for sale by private treaty, and are also available by way of the nation’s most respected national and regional public auctions. Wagonhound Land & Livestock is a proud supporter of Colorado State University’s Legends of Ranching Sale and the CSU equine program in general.
