CD Dyna Cee


2012 AQHA Sorrel Stallion • CD Lights x ARC Dyna Cee • 5 panel N/N

For two years, we had been looking for a “cow horse stud” that could meet our high expectations as far as pretty headed, ample bone, good feet and balance, which we were finding was a hard combination to find in the modern bloodlines of the cow horse world. We had seen a few CD Lights offspring that we felt fit this mold, but had not been able to get our hands on the right one, until Luke found “Lights” in the Snaffle Bit Futurity Sale in Reno in 2013. He was drawn to him in the round pen by his look and movement, and was further impressed when he realized how he was bred. When Luke brought him home, we were also impressed. He met the high expectations we held and we were so excited for his future. Luke started him in January 2014 and took him to the 2015 NRCHA Snaffle Bit Futurity. He was a favorite going into the futurity, however, did not make the finals due to tough luck with a cow in the herd work. As disappointing as that was, we were so impressed by his athleticism, work ethic, expression on a cow and willingness to give his all each time he is under saddle, whether it be in the show ring or at home. He currently is an AQHA point earner in 10 events including, working cowhorse, tie-down roping, heeling, heading, reining, ranch riding, cutting, performance halter, poles and barrels. He has $22,000 LTE in NRCHA, $1500+ LTE in NRHA, and $4000 LTE American Rope Horse Futurity. He is a 9X AQHA World Show Qualifier and 2017 AQHA Superhorse Contender. He was 12th Place in the Jr. Heading at the 2017 AQHA World Show and earned his AQHA Open Superior in 2017 as well. We had our first foal crop out of Lights in 2017 and we were beyond impressed with their natural balance, build and cuteness!

CT Show Me Your Guns

2013 AQHA Gray Stallion • Show Me A Song Joes x Seven S Gunsan Roses • 5 panel N/N • carries gray, cream and dun genes

We purchased “Joe” as a weanling at the Pitzer Ranch Fall Sale in 2013, from Terry and Mary Mailander. He is out of their great mare, Seven S Gunsan Roses, who was 9th in the AQHA World Show in 2007 in Jr. Heading shown by Mark Wray and was a qualifier and point earner in heeling and tie-down roping. Joe is sired by 2011 Sr. Heading World Champion, Show Me A Song Joes. His unique color makes him stand out in the crowd. He was born grey and then turned buckskin. He carries the creme gene, grey gene and dun gene, thus the dorsal strip and barring on his legs. Joe has been very trainable and willing from the beginning. He was started as has a cow horse, but after about 9 months of training we thought he had grown too big to continue that route. We gave him a few months off, sent him to a reining trainer to put a nice handle on him and sent him back down to Luke’s to be started in rope horse training. With the help of trainer Rick Rosaschi, Joe quickly became very solid in the roping pen. He qualified for the 2017 AQHA World Show in tie-down, heading, heeling, ranch riding and performance halter – making him a Super Horse Contender at his first World Show at the age of 4. He finished 6th in Jr Heading and 11th in Performance Halter Stallions, and 11th overall in the Super Horse contest. He also ended up 2nd in the 2017 AQHA Honor Roll in the Jr. Heading and 5th in the performance halter stallions. On January 29th, he became an AQHA CHAMPION just a few months shy of his 5th birthday. Joe qualified in multiple events for the 2018 AQHA World Show and was a Super Horse Contender again! His first foals arrived in 2017 out of a select group of mares and he began standing to the public in 2018. Because he possesses three of the color genes, there will be a ton of opportunity for color in his foals in the future and they are sure to be performers! BE AT THE TOP OF YOUR CLASS, SHOW A JOE!

HQ ROJO B BARTENDER

2007 AQHA Red Roan Stallion • Tee J Rojo Jack x Barmaid Glo

We raised “Rojo” and didn’t plan on keeping him as a stud, as we already had Jack. But we had numerous people tell us to keep him a stallion and we started to have second thoughts.  He had turned into a very complete and pretty horse.  His personality has always stood out even when he was a colt.  He had already gained a fan club before he was a year old when he became deathly ill with pneumonia and spent Christmas with the family at River Basin Equine Vet.  By the time he came home he was already missed by their staff and gained the nickname “fuzzy wuzzy”.  He is now most known for his contagious yawn and his crazy tongue when he is waiting for his grain. He is extremely athletic for a horse with his foot size and bone and is extremely balanced in his movement. Rojo’s colts have a ton of shape and his unbeatable personality. His colts have proven to be extremely trainable and versatile. He throws a high percentage of roans. Rojo stands 15 hands and weighs 1250 lbs.
