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

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.

Sammys Blue Try

The broodmare band includes own daughters of studs like Rowdy Blue Man, Blues Kingfisher, Moms Dream, Leo Hancock Hayes, Blue Try, Twice Roaned, Page Dee Bar, Ruffus Bars, Crowheart Roan, Wrangler Joe Hancock, Fintry Drift Hancock, Lasso’s Windsor,Whiskey River Run, Mira Doc Hancock, Cool Blue Hayes, Roan Ambrose, Blue Man Gist, War Conchos Drifter, Plenty Dividend, Plenty Sage Hancock, Wyo O Blue, Plenty Blue Bonnet, Blue Apache Hancock, and Plenty Coup Hancock. We also have six Joe Hancock Drifter daughters that are proving to be valuable broodmares, plus several Fintry Drifty Roan daughters in the wings.
Perhaps even more important than the stallions mentioned above are the maternal lines, with mares like Hydel Girl, Blue Flashy Kitten, Doll 01, Berrys Babe, Blue Kewpie Doll, Fox Hastings, Blue Hawk 22, Heather Dividend, Heart Hancock, Fintry Roan Amber, Ms Missy Freckles, Heather Gooseberry, Drifting Jewel, Mia Hancock, Linda Mujer, Ms Fancy Page, Zella Hep, Tarvers Pepita, Plenty Blue, Miss Roan Asset, Bunnie Sunday Bar, Lotta Bonnet, Chuckkar Maid 45, Ambrose Sue 30, Wyo Blue Maid, Brown Beaulah, Ceolita Hancock, Bluebird Hancock, Miss Sierra Coup, Dee Reed Roan, Ms Missy Freckles, Leo Lady Hayes, Bonnie Hayes, Mia Hancock, Coups Chick, Mandys Sue Hawk, and Bonny 02 on the papers. We feel that, while stallion selection is critical, these broodmares are the heart of our program.
