THE BOON

2008, PEPTOBOONSMAL x BOON SAN KITTY, HIGH BROW CAT

THE-BOON-owned-photo3-e1454448364102

THE BOON is a seventh-generation descendant of OLD SORREL, King Ranch’s foundation sire and a son of HICKORY BILL, a foundation sire of the American Quarter Horse. He is a son of PEPTOBOONSMAL (Lifetime Earning (LTE) $192,772; Progeny Earnings (PE) $26 million), and out of the top earning daughter of HIGH BROW CAT (LTE: $126,252; PE, $70 million) and 2004 National Cutting Horse Association Horse of the Year BOON SAN KITTY (LTE: $565,504; PE: $833,628). THE BOON has won $76,156 in open cutting competition. In 2017, the first King Ranch bred foals by THE BOON will be born. (Five Panel N/N, Herda N/N.)

KINEÑOS MOON

2002, RITAS SWEET BADGER x LIL BADGERS MOON, PEPPY SAN BADGER

Kineños-moon-pri

KINEÑOS MOON is a seventh-generation descendant of OLD SORREL as well. KINEÑOS’ name is in reference to the title of honor given to our long time cowboys at King Ranch. KINEÑOS MOON is a son of former King Ranch stallion, RITAS SWEET BADGER (FANNIN SUGAR x LITTLE PEPPYS RITA, PEPPY SAN BADGER). RITAS SWEET BADGER produced a calm, polite horse with unparalleled ability. KINEÑOS mother, LIL BADGERS MOON (PEPPY SAN BADGER x IMA MOON JET, NONSTOP JET), produced well-built, fast, ranch horses for King Ranch for 15 years. KINEÑOS MOON was born, bred, and broke on King Ranch and is a foundation of King Ranch’s breeding. (Five Panel N/N, Herda N/N.)

MARSALA RED

2003, PLAY RED x MARSALA DULCE, CJ SUGAR

Marsala-red-pri

MARSALA RED is an eighth-generation descendant of OLD SORREL as well. MARSALA RED was born, bred, and broke on King Ranch. Rolando Silguero, who used to serve as King Ranch’s Remudero (wrangler) for the horse operation, used to saddle MARSALA to gather the stallion’s own mare band. MARSALA is almost a mirror image of HIRED HAND, a top son of OLD SORREL. MARSALA is stout, big boned, and was easy to train. He passed on all of these qualities to his foals. MARSALA is a son of PLAY RED

(FRECKLES PLAYBOY x MISS LITTLE DRY, PEPPY SAN BADGER, LTE $136,088; PE: $334,380). PLAY RED is King Ranch breeding on top and on bottom. 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 many outside stallions looking to produce a ranch sire like MARSALA RED. (Five Panel N/N, Herda, N/N.)

For more information on MARSALA RED, or to breed to this stallion, please visit the website for Brazos Valley Stallion Station.

Find Horses for Sale

From looking at the studs above, one can see that every horse on King Ranch is a descendant of OLD SORREL. Every horse on the ranch goes back to MR SAN PEPPY or PEPPY SAN BADGER. King Ranch horses are heavily influenced by the bloodlines of DRY DOC and CJ SUGAR. Our mares are broke and used under saddle before they ever go into the broodmare band. Our horses are bred to be gentle and relaxed, without sacrificing ability. Years of experimenting with different bloodlines and breeds has provided us with superior performance horses, some pure quarter horses and some appendix bred (Thoroughbred influenced).
