“Hickory” is a big fancy blue roan gelding that steals hearts everywhere he goes. 15.3 hands and will weigh 1300#, gorgeous conformation with sturdy bone and foot under him and a beautiful jet-black head. “Hickory” is royal bred to make a cow horse, rope horse, show in ranch versatility, or sort/penning. His sire HickoryDickoryDoc is an NCHA money earner. His grandsire, Doc’s Hickory needs no introduction either. He is an AQHA High Point Cutting Stallion himself and his offspring have earnings of nearly 20 million in Cutting, Reining, and Cow Horse events. “Hickory” has been a full-time employee on our ranch since he was just a 3 year old . He has an outstanding work ethic, a willing disposition, and an eagerness to learn. He meets you at the gate ready to face the day. Although he is kind and gentle, he also has a lot of heart and willingly puts in long hours when needed. “Hickory” has been used by our entire family in the Idaho mountains on a forest association where he has learned to be reliable and handle the rough terrain with ease. Down timber, bog bridges, boulders, and creek crossings are normal elements in his every-day job. We have used him to doctor cattle outside, in the feedlot, and at many brandings. The past couple years he has also been used on the head side at team roping jackpots and he LOVES his job. “Hickory” scores rock solid, runs hard, rates cattle extremely well, and faces sharp. He will fit a broad spectrum of ropers as he is easy to get along with yet athletic enough to perform at a high level. One of Hickory’s important attributes is he handles time off while remaining levelheaded, quiet, and capable of doing his job. We have given him several months at a time off and when we put him back in the work force, he returns to work like he never missed a day! Hickory is hobble broke, good to bathe, a gentleman to shoe, stands tied quiet, polite to haul and will load in any type of trailer. He is the special kind, and while it is an honor to offer one like this for sale, it is also TOUGH, we will miss him for sure!!

“JBar” has been my personal horse the last several years and is reliable and safe in EVERY way! He stands 16 hands, will weigh 1400# and is gorgeous. He wears a #2 shoe, has heavy bone, and a flawless foundation under him. 11 years old and has had a full-time job most of his mature life creating years of invaluable experience that makes him the super star he is today. “Wet saddle pads and long days make good horses”! Many of the ancestors in JBar’s lineage are known for producing levelheaded ranch horses that hold up to hard use and the western lifestyle. Leo Hancock Hayes is a producer of many money earners in the rodeo arena. They make high caliber rope horses, and some have gone on to show in ranch versatility classes as well as team penning/sorting, mounted shooting, and trail. Our whole family has used JBar extensively on our ranch. I trust him 110 percent with my kids, my inexperienced friends, or my 82-year-old dad. No matter what we ask, he willingly tries his best and always keeps us SAFE! Time off doesn’t bother him in the least. JBar is most at home in the mountains. He is an outstanding traveler with a comfortable ground covering walk, and is a very sure footed, confident partner. Down timber, steep shale rock hill sides, brush, boulders, bogs, and rivers are all normal terrain to JBar. He never gets worked up when you get him in a tight spot, he just stays quiet and picks his way through it all. He is a true bridle horse that will ride in ANYTHING. Yields to leg pressure and is soft in the face and ribs. We have ridden him bareback swimming in the ponds, used him at town in the ranch rodeos, and even in a few parades. He has branded a zillion calves, ponied race colts, and even packed salt. JBar has truly seen and done about everything we ever dream of doing a horseback! He is very polite to shoe, bath, hobble, load, etc. Overall respectful horse that is eager to please. He is the special kind that has become part of our family. We invite you to come meet him in person prior to the sale to see if he is a good fit for your family! Text or call Dan or Becky Miller 208-221-1090
