"Rocky" might as well be the Big Brown of Quarter Horses! This 11 years young gelding is a Big, Brown gelding by the great Holland Ease! Rocky is out of an own daughter of Calyx by Dash For Cash, and his second dam is by the great Azure Te.  Do the math...the stud fee alone to get him as a colt would cost in excess of $6000! But really, who cares when you have such a nice, quiet, gorgeous, and well broke AQHA gelding?  Rocky has been used recently for High School Rodeo barrels, but is also broke in the poles and has been started roping.  He is quiet with a BIG heart and a tremendous amount of speed and athleticism.  This gelding is QUIET, fun to ride, will go up, through, and down anything, he's great at the beach and in the water, and he's just simply a good, safe ALL AROUND type of gelding.  Whether you are looking for a faithful trail companion, a decent rodeo competetor, or perhaps want to indulge in a little Cowboy Dressage, Rocky is definitely your guy!  We love him and a special home is a MUST.  Please contact me for additional pictures and video.  Rocky is UTD on farrier, teeth, and vaccinations.  Vet exams are welcome at the buyers expence.

Has it REALLY been this long?

I am so disappointed in myself for not posting in The Update Place for so long.  Really, this is a place to post updates on GW Horse and Cattle Company, it's partners, and just really what's going on with all of us!!  Rather than write a novel on the past...which I may do someday...I'll just let you know what's going on NOW.  If you want to know how we got here, well then, feel free to ask!  But, WE'RE HERE!!!

Things are really happening.  I have moved to Shandon, CA with my wonderful boyfriend Ron, and on a quaint 6 acres, which is just enough to enjoy what we have, and take on a few sale horses for customers.  We both work full time, and our careers and horses are priority.  But, I will take on a consignment horse, here and there, on an as needed bases.  We have a decent arena, round pen, paddocks, and access to roping steers.  I used to enjoy problem horses, but since I have a handful of young horses to get going myself, I will only take on solid horses to sale for customers.  They must be safe, sane, and fit in to my work schedule.  I will also consider young horses that just need some TLC like good nutrition and "charm school".  Please feel free to contact me if you have a horse in consideration for sales.

Dad and I are off on a new venture, looking in to buying a herd of cattle for investment purposes.  We head out to Colorado soon to meet the ranch managers and (hopefully) pick out our heifers.  Really, this is on Dad, but I can't let him pick out a bunch of leppies!  We'll keep you posted on the progress, but we both feel very optimistic about the opportunity.

I probably should make a promise...that I won't wait 2 years between posts!  Someone needs to hold me to it!!!

Good night friends!

I LOVE the Fall! This is my favorite time of year!

The long yearlings are in and ready to be started. I have a GEM waiting to be your next show prospect. He is a 2008 AQHA black colt by Master Kaweah and out of Guns N Cash, by Miss N Cash. He has that "it" factor we like to see in a performance horse and stallion prospect. This fancy colt has size, color, speed, disposition, and a lot of natural ability. With this terrible horse market, my biggest fear is he will be left behind. So, he will go on to the trainer if he is not sold by winter. If this colt was born 2 years ago, he would definitely be in a show home! Don't kick yourself in the behind later for passing him by now! Please call for additional information.

It was a picture perfect day on August 9, checking mares, babies, and the "retirees". We came across a herd of elk in Priest Valley that was absolutely breathtaking. Rodney was visiting from Mississippi and he had never seen anything like it. I hope you enjoy the pictures!

Hi Everyone,

Spring has definitely sprung, mares are in heat and babies are starting to hit the ground. We had a very nice surprise with a beautiful baby colt by Jonsey, my stallion that died tragically last year. We bred 3 mares about 3 or 4 times each, and they did not take. We randomly decided to breed Sami Jo's older maiden mare, covered her 1 time, about 2 weeks before Jonsey died. She came back in, and since the other mares did not take, we assumed Maria was open as well. Well, she fooled us all! Sami has been away at school and left Maria home. Her parents hauled Maria to meet Sami on her way to the Pomona rodeo. Sami took one look at Maria and had a gut feeling she was bred. She called every vet between Coalinga and Pomona, and got her in to a clinic in Bakersfield. Sure enough, Maria was in foal to Jonsey! Sami tied goats off her Friday and Saturday, brought her home, and she foaled a beautiful stud colt the following Tuesday, March 18. We named him "Pepsi Jones" and he is a spitting image of his mom. This is our miracle baby! Indio also foaled after carrying 3 weeks over. She had a gorgeous, GIGANTIC, breeding stock filly on Easter Sunday. Sami has a daughter of Son O Sugar due any day now, and the rest of the mares start to foal in May. I'll ad pictures as they come.
