If you are interested in breeding to a King Ranch stallion, all three studs (THE BOON, KINEÑOS MOON, and MARSALA RED) are available for limited outside breeding at Brazos Valley Stallion Station.
2008, PEPTOBOONSMAL x BOON SAN KITTY, HIGH BROW CAT
THE BOON is a seventh generation descendant of OLD SORREL. He is a son of PEPTOBOONSMAL and out of the top earning daughter of HIGH BROW CAT, BOON SAN KITTY. He has won $74,000 in cutting competition and he is a combination of the history and of the future of King Ranch Quarter Horses. 2016 will be his first year to breed King Ranch mares and is also available to breed to the public. For more information on THE BOON’s performance record and how to breed to this stallion, please visit the website for Brazos Valley Stallion Station. Five Panel N/N, Herda N/N.
2002, RITAS SWEET BADGER x LIL BADGERS MOON, PEPPY SAN BADGER
KINEÑOS MOON is a seventh generation descendant of OLD SORREL. KINEÑOS’ name is in reference to the title of honor given to our long time cowboys at King Ranch. The word “Kineno” is most closely translated to “King’s men.” This is the name given to King Ranch employees who have as much pride, respect, and ownership for this ranch as any family member. KINEÑOS MOON is a son of RITAS SWEET BADGER (FANNIN SUGAR x LITTLE PEPPYS RITA, PEPPY SAN BADGER). RITA SWEET BADGER was sold to Criadero de Caballos in Mexico, they specialize in ranch horses and Charreada competition. They have built their program around RITA SWEET BADGER. KINEÑOS mother, LIL BADGERS MOON (PEPPY SAN BADGER x IMA MOON JET, NONSTOP JET), was a top daughter of PEPPY SAN BADGER and out of a NONSTOP JET mare. KINEÑO is foundation King Ranch and Quarter Horse breeding, crossed with a top son of FANNIN SUGAR and a top daughter of PEPPY SAN BADGER. Five Panel N/N, Herda N/N.
2003, PLAY RED x MARSALA DULCE, CJ SUGAR
MARSALA RED is an eighth generation descendant of OLD SORREL. MARSALA RED was trained by Rolando Silguero. Rolando has saddled him on multiple occasions to go gather the stallion’s own mare band. MARSALA is almost a mirror image of HIRED HAND, the top son of OLD SORREL. MARSALA is stout, big boned, and easy to train, and that is also exactly the kind of foal he produces. MARSALA is a son of PLAY RED (FRECKLES PLAYBOY x MISS LITTLE DRY, PEPPY SAN BADGER, LTE $135,000). PLAY RED is King Ranch breeding on top and on bottom. We chose to breed to this sire because he is a successful cutting horse competitor, but also because his offspring have been successful in ranching, barrel racing, roping, and reining. PLAY RED is a breeder of all-around performance horses, and so is his son MARSALA RED. MARSALA is out of MARSALA DULCE (CJ SUGAR x LITTLE MARSALA, PEPPY SAN BADGER). MARSALA DULCE was a stout, top producing mare and we bred her to a lot of different outside stallions looking to produce a ranch sire. Five Panel N/N, Herda, N/N.
