Hi Jan,

It's been awhile since I talked with you.  I thought I'd let you know that it looks like I'm going to be selling my Sir Wrangler gelding later this summer.  The girl that has been riding him seems to be at the age where she's losing interest.  I'll keep him thru August 19th, which is the end of our Jr. Horse fair, so she can finish up the year in 4-H.  Since I bought a young quarter horse filly last fall to cut cows on, Quester has only been ridden a few times.  He's way TOO good of horse to be left standing around to grow old alone!


Quester is now 15 years old.  He has been shown western, hunt seat, saddleseat, trail, costume, & even driven twice at shows.  He was Washington State Horsemen Hi point Appaloosa, both english & western in 2001.  That same year, he was also the top trail horse & saddleseat pleasure horse among all-breeds.  Since then, all he has done is trail ride & work cows.  He loves cow work, but is too slow & lazy to be really good at it.  Elizabeth has shown him a few times in local 4-H shows & has done real well both english & western.  She's a real timid rider & he just seems to know to be good with her ( & not try any of the stunts he's tried with me over the years!).  He would also make a great lesson horse.  Since I've been away from the show world for awhile, I'm not sure what a horse like him is worth.  I think I'll price him at $7,500.  & would make considerations to the right home.  I've had Quester since he was two, so finding a good home for him is of the utmost importance.


Since I'm only doing the cutting shows now, I'm also selling my silver show saddle & equipment.  If you would pass the word around, I'd appreciate it.  I'll probably endup listing it on e-bay later if I don't sell it locally.  I will try to get some pictures of it taken soon.


It's been a real pleasure to own & show a Sir Wrangler son.  I hope you can help me find a really good home for Quester.  Thanks!

I just wanted to thank you for putting Dusty up on your site. He has now sold he fell in love with him from the moment she first laid eyes on did 12 other college-aged girls! My old trainer coaches the WWU Intercollegiate riding team and she used Dusty for their lesson. Amber is sooo excited, because now she has a horse her and her husband Scott can ride (he fell in love with Dusty too) and a couple of the WWU students are going to do a partial lease on him as well. Dusty has touched many hearts and will be greatly loved up there. He is in the exact situation I wanted him to be in...he lives on 80 acres and will be riden almost daily and loved beyond belief. I just wish you could have seen all the college students, Amber and her husband's smiling faces as they all tended to the gelding with the biggest heart I've ever seen! Thank you to you and Sir Wrangler for producing such wonderful, gentle horses that are not only a true asset to the Appaloosa industry, but to the whole horse industry in general.

 Desperado Moon (Dusty- on right).   I would like to tell you about this sweet gelding. I purchased Dusty last December as a project horse. He lived his whole life in Shelton, WA, as a trail horse. I purchased Dusty and took him back here to Idaho and put him in training with Tami McClure. Since that time I showed him at one ApHC regional show here in Idaho where he earned 1.5 points in Novice Non Pro Hunt Seat Equitation and 1 point in Non Pro Hunt Seat Equitation. Also, a friend of mine's daughter, Brittany, rode him in the youth walk-trot and he won the all-around walk-trot (out of three walk-trotters) at the I.O.N. ApHC Sun Sizziling Spots show here in Idaho. Brittany also won the I.O.N.'s year-end champion walk-trot award on Dusty. But it doesn't stop there, a friend of mine wanted to go to the World show and so I said, "Let's go." Needless to say, I rode Dusty in the Novice and Non Pro Hunt Seat Equitation classes and we placed 10th (out of 20 riders) in the Novice Non Pro Hunt Seat Equitation class at the 2005 ApHC World Show.
I just wanted you to know that Dusty has been a wonderful horse and has done so much in so little time.  He stands about 15.2 hh, is registered chestnut gelding (looks more like a red roan), and is sired by sir wrangler and his dam is Baby Bright.

The Blue Eyed Wrangler 

Sire:  Sir Wrangler, Dam:  The Texan Blond by Mighty Texan by Mighty Bright

2001 Solid chestnut appaloosa gelding.  This lovable colt has been shown in open showmanship and halter.  He has a 45 degree shoulder angle creating smooth movement.  Blue's easy-going attitude makes him a wonderful prospect for performance, trail, kid's horse, or maybe just a fancy lawn ornament.  All of which would be fine with him!  He was imprinted at birth and will pick up all his feet.  Worming is a breeze as well.  No fuss.  He will even stand still while you band his mane in the cross-ties!  I hate to let him go, but I have too many other horses to work with and he is being somewhat neglected in that department.
