Hancock Bloodline Qtr Horses


We raise our horses out on the range, where they breed, foal and grow up. They know how to cross a creek, turn around in a tight spot, and come off the mountain.

Blue Valentine bred horses are a big part of our program. We stand three Blue Valentine bred studs and most of our mares have significant Blue Valentine influence. 

We will be marketing individual colts throughout the year. Stop by and take a look, the coffee’s always on.

Promised Land Ranch Mares

Mares for Sale

Been putting this day off, but it's time. We've decided to offer some of our favorite older mares. The winters here are rough and we just aren't set up well enough to easily provide that extra care to give them an easy winter. These mares are from the heart of our program and we have offspring from all of them that are a big part of our breeding program going forward. The pedigrees of these mares are rare and getting rarer, packed with legendary horses, with daughters of Guatemala Canal, War Conchos Drifter, Blue Man Gist and Blue Try, three are out of Mr Roan Hancock daughters. I strongly feel these are the kind of mares that can build a powerful foundation in a breeding program, and they aren't making any more of these. Taking on older mares is always rolling the dice, but they are in good health, several foaled this year and I see no reason they aren't able to deliver a few more foals with a little TLC. They sell exposed to Okanogan Blue. Consideration given to anyone keeping Bambi and Sealpup (The Browns) together, they are pretty inseparable. Pedigrees and prices posted under pictures. I'd be glad to give my opinions and input on any of these mares, feel free to call.

We run about 60 mares and fillies. The brood mares live out on the range. They foal out, breed back and raise their colts out on the range. We round them up in the fall for sale time, wean the colts and kick the mares back out to rustle, paw snow and come down for hay when it’s time. In other words, they live like horses.

The mares are of foundation breeding, take a good look at the horses in their backgrounds. We have tried to select mares from lines that go back to good using and performance lines for generations. Most of them spend time in the saddle string, in fact, all the saddle horses we are using now are mares born here on the ranch. The mares bloodlines run heavy to Joe Hancock, Blue Valentine and Driftwood, blended with proven Northwest lines like Page Lee and Ruffus Bars.
