Our Horses

We have carefully researched and selected our horses to achieve our goals described by the 3 Es:

Sundoctor SunDoctor-Logo-TINY read-moreOur stallion, SunDoctor, is an own son of the great Mr Sun O Lena and out of the producing mare Docs Sparta. His grandparents are equally impressive and include Doc O Lena with Sunflower Sana by Peppy San and Sparta Tiveo with Docs Debutante by Doc Bar. This is original cow horse breeding at its best! And, SunDoctor exhibits the same traits that made his ancestors greats of the breed – gentle disposition, athleticism, cow sense and classic conformation. He is currently in training with Zeke Entz (NCHA Hall of Fame and Million Dollar rider) and has taken quickly to his job!

Our mares represent the same qualities we see in our stallion:
