If you have ever wanted a Black Beauty of your own, here is your chance! SPOOKSICLE, A.K.A. Olivia, is the epitome of bold and beautiful! At just over 14.2 hands, this sturdy black AQHA mare is gorgeous! She is both curious and confident. She is sired by the powerhouse stallion SG FROZEN ENTERPRIZE. While he boasts lifetime earnings over $274,000, he has really begun to make a name for himself in the breeding barn. Iceman has now sired NRHA offspring with earnings over 2.3 MILLION dollars! The bottom side of this mare’s pedigree reads like the – Who’s Who – of the reining and ranch horse industry. Olivia’s mother, SPOOK WHIZ A SPARK, earned $38,467 in NRHA competition and is sired by legendary $7 million dollar sire, SMART SPOOK. Her grandmother, WHIZIN OFF SPARKS, is an earner of over $112,000 and has produced nearly $300,000 in money earning offspring. The great granddam, SETTING OFF SPARKS, has earnings over $90,000 and has produced winners with an excess of $678,000! Whether you choose to ride or breed this mare we are confident you will enjoy her for many years to come! Along with an excellent pedigree, Oliva has that heavy bone that so many of today’s performance horses lack. She carries her neck nice and flat and reads your seat very well. You can pitch her away and ride her on a loose rein or you can bridle her up and put her right in your hand. She has been ridden extensively both inside and outside of the arena. She is confident with gunfire, whips, tarps, ropes, etc. She is sure-footed out on the trail and navigates handily through water, woods, and up and down steep terrain. She has nice quick stops, spins, and is an easy lead changer. As with all our horses, Olivia leads, ties, hobbles, lays down, clips, stands for the blacksmith and loads in a trailer with no fuss. If you are in the market for a nice mare, please feel to give Nick a call at 740-255-0715 to schedule a visit.
They say you will always remember your first and Big Boy has been exactly that for us! This 2019 gentle giant is the first draft cross we have ever owned. The first time I saw Big Boy I knew he was going to be special. This 16.2 hand draft/paint cross gelding has been one of the most fun and most memorable horses we have ever trained. His contrasting color and handsome stature catch your eye and his personality will capture your heart! He loves attention and enjoys having a job. Big Boy is extremely agile for his size and has that smooth, flat necked fancy lope that the quarter horse industry craves! He can be ridden western one handed in a bridle, English with two hands in a snaffle, or simply bareback in a halter and lead! He has a good “whoa” and a nice handy spin and side passes with ease. He is extremely efficient at the lope and not hard to keep going, yet he is content to mosey along the trail at a nice leisurely pace. Big Boy is happy in a crowd of horses or off by himself. He has had concentrated training in the arena as well as countless hours out on the trail. Big Boy is confident going up and down hills, through the woods, across water, or out on the road. He is very well acclimated to gunfire, whips, tarps, wildlife, ponies, dogs, and rambunctious children! We have used him to pony young horses as well as push colts and cattle. When I was young we were lucky enough to meet Baxter Black. He jokingly commented about my dad’s old gelding, That’s a real farmer’s horse, the kind you can use to check cows on in the morning and plow your garden in the evening! Big Boy exemplifies that type of horse, but in a much prettier package! He does have some old splints on his front cannon bones and they are purely cosmetic and have never caused him any issues. Please give Nick a call at 740-255-0715 for any additional information or to schedule a visit!
Remember The Titans! SS TITANIUM, A.K.A. Titan, is a horse that you won’t soon forget! This big boned, beautiful, gentle gelding checks all the boxes for versatility! His sire SG FROZEN ENTERPRIZE has earnings over $274,000 and has produced money earners of over 2.3 MILLION dollars!! His mother is by the legendary broodmare sire SHINING SPARK, no introduction needed! His maternal grand dam, the great roping horse BAR J JACKIE, was shown by J.D. Yates! Titan has proven himself both in and outside of the arena. With his graceful movement and quiet demeanor, he excels in AQHA ranch riding and ranch rail. This past season Titan was hauled and seasoned for both AQHA and jackpot classes. Nick and Titan achieved their personal best ranch riding score of 81.5 in September! More recently, Titan was a 4-time finalist at the 2023 All American Quarter Horse Congress, competing in both Open and Amateur divisions! In 2023 Titan garnered 21 AQHA performance points. He was awarded his performance ROM (register of merit) and has already qualified for the 2024 AQHA world show in Junior Ranch Riding and Junior Ranch Riding level 2! Titan has his whole 5-year-old show season ahead of him he is ready to make a big splash in 2024! We would love to keep this horse in our 2024 show string if his new owner so desires! If horse showing isn’t your thing, Titan still has plenty to offer! He is a solid 15.2 hands and wears a size 1 shoe! He is built to work, or play, all day long! We have used him to push colts, pony horses, and have trail ridden him extensively in all types of terrain. Titan is more of a push type horse but is a big mover! He has a soft collected trot, an amazing extended trot, and a rhythmic rocking chair lope! He will happily side pass to a mounting block or lay down for mounting. Titan can open and close gates, cross water, logs, bridges etc. He is good with traffic, whether it be motorized vehicles, equestrian, or pedestrian. He readily accepts gun fire, whips, tarps, and can handle a rope. He simply loves having a job! He gets along well with other horses. By March we will have had him just shy of 21 months and he has been extremely sound and is an easy keeper.
