Douglas, WY – Wagonhound Land and Livestock believe in investing in the future and are proud to join forces with the Colorado State University through various programs that develop young horsemen and horsewomen from across the country. The ranch is proud to support CSU Equine Sciences Program through the endowed Wagonhound Land & Livestock Chair, as well as the annual CSU Legend of Ranching Equine Student Competition and Performance Horse Sale.
This year Wagonhound has consigned four horses to the CSU Legend of Ranching Performance Horse Sale (LQR), which were assigned to undergraduate students to train and prepare for the sale held on Saturday, April 28th. The LQR sale is used as an educational tool in preparing CSU Equine Sciences students for success in the diverse multi-billion dollar horse industry. This program offers students a unique hands-on learning opportunity as they work with young horses provided by consignors as well as catalog and sale management that will be useful to them as they prepare for their equine careers.
Wagonhound Land and Livestock consignments include a two-year-old gelding whose pedigree include that of NCHA Leading Sire Peptoboonsmal and NRHA Million Dollar Sire Grays Starlight; a three-year-old black mare by 2011 leading NRHA Junior Sire Wimpys Little Step and out of an NRCHA money earner by #1 All-Time Leading NRCHA Shining Spark; a five-year-old ranch bred and raised son of Peptoboonsmal with experience in all aspects of ranch work; a five-year-old reliable ranch gelding that has been used in all general ranch work.
Horses consigned to the LQR Sale can be purchased on site or by absentee bidding. For more information on this program, the sale or to view a catalog please visit CSU Equine Website.
