CM Misty Mist-1997 AQHA Mare
"Mare" is Johns mare he bought from the sand hills of Nebraska back in 2006. She is trained roping and ranch mare, she is also patterned on the barrels. Mare has a wonderful disposition and conformation that is hard to beat. She has produced one foal for us, Diesel, who has turned out to be a great all round gelding for us. Mare is a double bred Tiger Leo on the top and out of a Short Cut/Sheel Blow(Leo) mare.
Joe Mac Bugs- 2004 AQHA gelding
"Rusty" Jo got from a good friend when he was a yearling and is her main horse. Rusty has traveled all over with Jo and she has trained him for a wide variety of disciplines both western & english. Jo started to haul him lightly in 2011 to local barrel runs & pole bending competitions and he did very well, but their year was cut short due to a family emergency in Iowa. Sadly they haven't been able to return to competing full time yet but hopefully will in 2014. Rusty also loves cutting, roping, and reining cow horse events, but also enjoys just working the ranch, trail riding, pasture roping, and just going for a relaxing ride down a gravel road.
King of the Roxy-2007 AQHA gelding
King is one of Johns cutting horses. Currently John has about 120 days of training on him in the arena and has been started on the flag, cattle, and trail rides. King is showing great potential to be a awesome all around gelding when he is finished. This gelding loves attention and to be rode no matter what he and John are doing. King is by Slide To Jamaica (Smart Chic Olena X Hurricane Jamaica (Ciclone)) out of Comos Leo Bird (Doctor Como(Son ofa Doc)X Blue Leo Bird (Doc Clabber/War Leo)).
Joyful Storm- 2001 AQHA mare
"Tequila" came off the track and is Jos main barrel horse. This mare had a great deal of issues when she came to us but Jo and her clicked. Now you will find them doing anything from arena work to trails and road riding to ranch work. This mare shows a great deal of promise as a top notch barrel horse and Tequila thoroughly enjoys it. Jo started lightly hauling her in 2011, loping in a standard pen she was winning or placing in the high 3D.

After months of re-training, Steve is now a horse that anyone can ride and nothing bothers him. He has tracked cattle, worked the flag, worked out of the boxes, roped a few steers, trotted the barrels and poles, and used on trails. This gelding is in training for roping but also has a great desire to get down and cut a cow.
