Last Night...

Journal Entry: Sun Aug 31, 2014, 12:42 PM

I got to ride 2 cutting horses :D One that was going to be sent down the futurity route and then the other who is good, but has been known to buck when you work cows on him. The futurity filly did really well once I got a snaffle back on her, with the curb she pushed on the cows a lot, and it was just too much bit for cattle work, so I put her in the snaffle and she did fantastic. The colt, like I said is known to be a bucker, and he didn't try to buck at all with me in dry work and on cattle. He even got quite a few good low cuts in on the cattle, which was really fun. I now realize I'm a better snaffle cutter than I am in a curb. Especially on young horses who are used to being in snaffles and getting a little help. Lot of leg work obviously, but you still have to keep their noses tipped in. I have soft hands, but even when I use my cow leg to try to keep them off the cow, it seems most horses really like to push up on the cattle, so for me, it's easier to ride in a snaffle where at least I can help keep them back if they need it, otherwise my hands get down to where they should be and stay there. It was a lot of fun, but I didn't get home till like 11pm, and after riding both of them, I was exhausted. They hadn't been ridden in 2 months, and despite being on the hot walker for a few hours, after they were saddled up and put in the round pen, they both needed a few laps in there to get some "bucks" out. The filly mostly did just kind of a rolling jump type buck, but the colt just did a few jumps when I sent him out then was good. Learn from this kids, don't get on long 2 year olds or early 3 year olds without lunging them with a saddle first. If you don't, you're probably asking for trouble, especially if they haven't been ridden on a daily basis. Just sayin. But yeah, lots of fun :) Super exhausting fun, but very fun still. Wish I could have got some pictures, but my camera turns on, and the screen stays black, soooo need to get it fixed. However plan to go out there next week or so and take out Destiny, so I will probs take out my tablet or something so I can video with that and then I can ride 2 of the other colts I really liked. A 2 year old filly with about 9 rides on her that is flat out BUILT, and then a 3 year old gelding who just needs work. It's funny, the filly is out of a running bred mare, but is built like a tank, and the colt is out of one of their thickest mares, and he's a rail. Same sire, but it's weird how different they're built from their dams. The colt needs a lot of saddle work, and the filly just needs work in general. I'd take her over him as far as barrel horse things go, as I like her build better for turning, but he's got a big running build. Both are going to the auction, can't afford the asking price for them as it is right now, but I'm gonna try to go to the auction and watch for what they sell for. Not sure if they'll pull them if they don't get the asking price, but who knows. I just can't afford their price right now, but at auctions they usually go cheaper in this market. Wish I could afford them, I just can't. The colt is the gelding I rode twice as a 2 year old and was not impressed with, but I pushed on his nose to see if he'd give to me (since last time I tried it, he did not and pushed against me), and he did, which means he's probably had some softening work done, which he NEEDED badly, but if  go out there again, I'll probably ride him and the filly to see how they do and see if I'd be interested in either of them if the time comes and I can afford them. The filly is really pretty, thick bay thing with a nice mane and tail, and the colt is a dapple grey, but I'm thinking he'll turn fleabitten. I love greys, but the colt has never impressed me, so next time we go out, I'll def have to ride him and see how much he's changed. I like the filly better bloodline wise because she's Dash for Cash (she doesn't look like typical DFC's though, much thicker build and prettier head than most of them got), but the colt is out of one of my favorite mares of theirs, so it's a toss up. I think with work, he'd be nicely muscled, but this filly already has muscle and is only getting bigger.

Painted Desert Ranch

Raising the Dust,
One Horse at a Time

"Legends don't come and go,
they come and impact,
forever leaving hoofprints on our hearts."


Is home to some of the best quality stock horses of all HARPG and other RPGs. We have a lot of stock to chose from and provide a huge variety of bloodlines that are proven in and out of the arena. Our main discipline is barrel racing, and with 25 entries at different shows in it, it has became our strongest event. We also take a lot of pride in our rope horses, with 15 entries in roping.

We were put on the map after our mare Holly(see left) became a Hall of Fame horse(at HARPG-The-WD). She was the first of many, and has become our icon here at the ranch. Holly semi-retired in January 2012, and now is producing the next line of champions.

Our second horse that was accepted as Hall of Fame (again with the WD), is PD Handdown Hancock. A blue roan Quarter Horse stallion. He was the little roan that showed everyone little horses can have big hearts. He is currently finishing 2014 as his last large year of showing, attending only the largest and most prestigious of shows.

My current foundation stud horse that is rising the ranks is PD He's Greek to Me, a 14 year old crazy colored gene bomb of Quarter Horse stallion. Known as "The Cream Ghost" around the barn due to his color, he sticks out in any arena. Keep watch for Willie, his get, and his grandget in the arena :aww: His current total with HARPG-The-WD is around 100 points.

And the Paint mare I've decided to run along side him recently came back home to her birthplace, Kasey from Zephyrra, who was a Top finalist in the HARPG Next Top Horse show, will be joining our ranks. The mare is something special and placing as the highest western horse in the HARPG NTH was a huge accomplishment, and we hope to prove to the world that she is indeed, the next top horse. She's currently over 280 points with the WD and is of Best of the Best ranking :)

We also have PD She's Done Gone, aka Fly, who is my next mare I really wanna work with. After only entering a couple times, she's well on her way to Best of the Best with 50 points. You can't miss her with her gorgeous douple pearl coat.


:pointr: Spanky and Holly's foal, Lou, will have her new owner announced August 26 or 27. This filly will be the highest pointed horse at the WD sold to date, going to her new owner with a expected 200+ points with HARPG-The-WD! Thank you to everyone who entered her sale, expect more foals from Spanky soon as Holly rests in the pasture :aww:
