Specializing in good minded horses with speed and athleticism We breed for VERSATILITY!
We'd like to share some emails from some of our horse buyers.
Wranglers LiL Scoot was purchased by our niece, Shalee Lemmon, at our 2004 Production Sale. Scooter has been a true blessing for Shalee and has made the transition from placing at the World Show in Team Penning to placing at 4-H and NBHA Barrels and Poles. More importantly, she has made a wonderful diffenence in a young girl's life. The following poem is Shalee's tribute to her friend, Scooter.
ODE TO MY FRIEND By Shalee Lemmon
You gave me confidence when I was scared. You showed me that I could achieve anything. Your have always given your best and asked little in return. You have shown loyalty beyond compare.
Now it is my turn to give back to you...
I will always provide you with a happy life. I will never let you come to any harm. I will always be grateful for all you have done for me. I will return your gift of loyalty.
All of these I do solemnly swear to my friend, my horse.
Shalee & Scooter
I was just checking our your site and saw a pic of Chex there. I just
wanted to let you know that he is doing well. We absolutely love him.
He has fit into our place just perfect. I've been roping on him and
have taken him to some US Ropings/Jackpots. I get great comments on him
everywhere I take him. Jeff has really good luck roping on him also,
but I think he's mine and have taken him over. Anyway, I just wanted to
let you know he is doing well and he will be at our place for many
years to come.
Happy Holidays, Kristen and Jeff Hudson
Wanted to let you know how good the palomino colt is doing - we call him Dinero also! (original huh?)
still at Gene Von Ahns (guy who rides my colts) they keep trying to buy
him but I'm not ready to part with him yet. He must be nice if he
wants to buy him! REALLY excited now that Sherri did so well too!
When I can get you an updated photo of him I'll send it.
Hope all is well - take care, Renea
New Year Finneys! Josie is the best little mare--not a single turn for
the worst, just better all the time. She is so mannerly and gentle to
handle, just a real pleasure to be around. We took her out of the pen
with the other weanling, (getting too fat on free choice feed!!) and put
her out with the 'herd' (yearling, two year old, 4y/o, 9y/o, 11y/o and
15y/o bred mare). She is not one bit of trouble (obviously raised in a
herd), very respectful toward all the other mares, quiet and humble in
the barn. She has such good sense about keeping her distance in the
barn, moving as soon as another horse moves toward her, so very quiet
which pleases the old mares. The young mares delight in keeping her
moving, but Josie never gets shook up about it, just moves along at
their direction and keeps in close with whoever is the most receptive,
or keeps her distance without anxiety. She has a bigger hip on her than
the April birthday yearling, although she is a little shorter.
Absolutely the easiest keeper I have ever owned--her back has to be 10
or 12 inches across, and just filled out and pretty already! She has a
little hay belly on her, but we feed with the idea that they will have
some to come back to later in the day, and I do not think she stops
picking around on hay. The most beautiful, baby doll head, and such a
lovely eye. We are anxious to start riding her next summer and see if
we can make her into a barrel horse!
The young lady that bought
the Seneca Bunny mare is enjoying her, too. I have seen her just in
the last several days, and she is growing tall, filling out and loving
life. She is living with 2 other horses and getting along well. She is
fat and pretty. We are also looking forward to starting this filly too
(likely we will break her and start her on barrels.)
especially like to have a catalogue of your Fall 2005 sale. I would be
very interested in owning a filly from your stallion, especially bred to
a running mare. I will look forward to receiving that.
Hope your holidays are happy--ours are, as they are filled with family and HORSES! Look forward to seeing you in the future!
Finney’s, just wanted to tell you that we still love old Sancho. We’ve
ridden him on trails all over Oklahoma, and he never messes up. I take
friends that don’t ride much, and Sancho always gives them an enjoyable
ride. My wife wouldn’t take for him. He has given her tons of
confidence. Thanks again!
Thought I'd send a pic. of Ricky (we call him Finney). He is a good ranch horse. Sure gets people's attention at the brandings. When he starts roping on him I'll try to get a heading picture of him to send to you. - Tammy

Joe & Diane, I've ridden "Rocky" several times since we bought him at your sale last weekend. I have to tell you that he is the best colt that I have ridden in many years, rock solid and a real pleasure to ride. Represented exactly the way he is.
Next time you have a sale be sure and send me some flyers. I would sure do some advertising for you in this country. Although Rocky is probably the best representation of your program that you can get.
Thanks for a great horse.

Just got this picture back today. It was taken
just a couple of weeks ago. Thought you might enjoy it. Rocky is
awesome, started heading a few steers on him and he is doing great !
Hope all is well in your neck of the woods.
Hope your trip home was uneventful Saturday. I just wanted to share this story with you, it is kind of sappy. I had a gelding that I trained and finished, and the Fall of 08’ he was really doing great, hitting the 1d consistently, placed me at a rodeo, and ran 12th out of 250 head on our last 2 runs. Unfortunately, he got into something in the pasture and cut his already damaged hock, and last Feb. the vet said no more barrels . I was devastated to say the least. After a few months, and not knowing what to do, I had the opportunity to place him in a home as a trail horse. The new owner had served 2 tours in Iraq, and just wanted a horse, and I thought this was something meaningful that I could do for my Country in a roundabout way.
As we left Shawnee Sat. Ricky got the filly’s papers out and was reading off of them as I drove. He got to her date of birth and it was April 23, immediately I realized that was the date I gave my “Tex” away on, last year. It just brought tears to my eyes, and moments like that I call “God moments”. So, I really think your special little filly is exactly where she should be, and is already a blessing to me.
On a lighter noted, she has settled in good at our place and put my 3 yr. Old mare, who is a bit bossy and twice her size in her place right quick, with a swift kick…..which is exactly what she has been needing! LOL. I am going to call her “Harlow” coming from the Slash J Harletta mares name, and Jean Harlow who was known as the “Blonde BOMBSHELL”….so I think that is fitting.
It was a pleasure meeting and dealing with you.
Thanks so much for this opportunity,
china is doing great.i gave her a few days to settle in,then put her to work.she is working well,walk trot and lope.bucked a little the first time.i just love her.she is so people friendly and quiet.going to shoe her next week.when the weather breaks i will haul her to some small shows to let her look around.
thank so much for the chance to own such a nice horse.
