I asked a gal at church who competes about some possible sources for a good prospect. She was able to point me in the right direction with some names and numbers so today I started calling around. Not having much luck I remembered a horse I had bought one time from Faster Horses' daughter and son in law. Well I called them and boy was that ever the wrong thing to do. FH's SIL had just what I was looing for. Bred right, colored right and priced right. Yeehaw, I thought I was doing good but he kept talking. He allowed as to how they were selling out and we should come have a look at some mares that were a 3 in 1 package. Well I called up the Hostile Native just to see if I could get a rise out of her and holy smoke the joke was on me. She said,"I'll be home in a little while let's go look". UH OH. My usual voice of reason and sanity has done been abducted. We got out there and upon seeing the little filly I called about I'd made my mind up on her. Now we get to the mares. We ended up buying two of the 3 in 1 packages and also another broodmare. I'm pretty excited and looking forward to picking them up tomorrow. The bloodlines are pretty neat. Names on the 3 generation pedigrees consist of Mr.Gunsmoke, PeppySan, Leo, Wilywood, Orphan Drift, RocketBar, HollywoodDunIt and ZanParBar. As you can see I'm pretty excited and still in awe of the Hostile Natives escaping good sense. Today was completely out of character for her.

There was a lot going on today so I wasn't able to go and pick them up until late afternoon and then I had about a 1 1/2 hour drive back to the ranch. The Hostile Native is still thinking we lost our mind. I had no inclination to buy a bunch of mares or babies when we went over there. I did get the one I was after though. I'm just wondering why I bought her dam and full brother and the others. Oh well. I'm glad we did it. Now I'm going to be racking my brain trying to figure out what kind of stud to breed them to. The gray mare is double bred Leo and also has Rocket Bar on her papers. A good friend of ours who is a barrel racer and also owns and runs "TURN" Barrel Horse Magazine has a Streakin Six son that I think will cross nice on her. I'm still thinking on a stud for the Orphan Drift mare and also the Hollywood Dun It mare. I've got till next spring after they foal to come up with some answers, but I need to start saving up for stud fees now. Any ideas ?

Are you talking about Bill Smith of Spur, Texas?
If so, we have met him and seen his horses--have much
respect for his program. He's quite a guy. So down to earth
and genuine. He actually let Mr. FH ride his Possum horse.
What a treat!
What are your thoughts on Bully Bullion breeding?
We have a friend in Texas that sure likes these horses, if
not for him, I wouldn't know anything about them. I do
thinkk they are not little horses, more stout type ranch
and rope horses. Looking forward to your reply.
