For as long as I can remember I’ve loved horses. Can you relate?
There is just something about them that sets my soul on fire. I have a special place in my heart for the stout ones too. 🔥
Almost 15 years ago, my husband and I got our first big boy. This is him and his name is Shark. He is the reason we set out to make our dream of becoming half-draft breeders a reality. ❤️
Shark is a no nonsense kind of guy. He is in essence a “work horse”. There isn’t much he can’t do...and there isn’t much you can’t do on him. He doesn’t mess around and he gives 100% all the time. He came to us quite young. He never bucked around or has never been cold backed. We don’t have time for that. We want horses that want to get along and once broke stay broke. We’ve had several people hand us a blank check for him...and we’ve handed it back every single time. Horses like him just aren’t for sale.
However, we know there is a need for more like him. That is why we wanted to breed and raise horses just like Shark for ourselves and for others like us. Folks who want a great ranch horse that they don’t need to tip-toe around. One anyone can ride and feel safe on. One that can handle anything thrown his way.
We decided to go the half Percheron and half Quarter Horse way to begin with. We have 4 studs. We are beyond excited to offer our first colt crop for sale at the end of October as weanlings. If you are interested and want to see what we’ve got so far follow us at @lazysixnineranch
We have 12 stud colts and fillies to choose from this year. Next year we plan to have more than double that to offer. This is only the beginning for us in this regard. We hope you come along for the ride!
