Sold! Lil Easy Tootsie -- 2005 AQHA Gray Mare
Lil Easy Feature x Miss Lil Tootsie   
Full Pedigree:

        This gorgeous gray mare should have a great future in the barrels or roping. I have owned this mare since she was two. She's been brought along slowly, and has a good foundation. I started her on the barrels last year, and am currently hauling her to jackpots. She seems like she will be able to handle different types of ground.
        "Bloomer" has a lot of natural bend and rate, and is a push-style runner. I still ride her in either a smooth snaffle or twisted snaffle, but occasionally ride her in a beetle hackamore. She has done some ranch work as well. She is very conformationally correct, with good bone and feet.  
        Her pedigree is made up of run on the top and cow on the bottom. Lil Easy Cash had a speed index of 104, and Frosty Feature was AA and had his ROM on the track. Stage Bar Ted is the sire of many rope and barrel horses. Dorky was a World Show qualifier in 1981 in five events: barrels, poles, heading, heeling, and calf roping. 
        More videos at She ran in the 3D at the Mason City, IA Barrel Bash May 20-11, 2011, on her fourth run ever, with over three hundred entries each day--1.1 seconds off the fast time of the weekend. 
Thanks to Sherri Cass, Pierre, SD, for trading me 3 Sun Frost Country colts--4 year old, 3 year old, and 2 year old!  I'm looking forward to their futurity careers.
Sold! French Man Dorky -- 2003 Daughter of Frenchmans Guy 

This year she has made a lot of really great runs, so my job is done, and it is time for someone else to go have fun on her! This mare is very broke. I ride her in a snaffle, she flexes easily laterally and vertically, and it just takes a touch of your heel to move her shoulder, ribs, or hip. Bill Myers and Troy Crumrine have both complimented how broke she is. I run her in something with a medium shank and simple mouthpiece, or a beetle hackamore, and no other headgear. 

“Shy” runs 1D in a smaller pattern, and 1D/2D on a larger. She excels when the ground is good as she turns with more confidence. I entered three futurities on her as a five-year-old and then hauled her to quite a few amateur rodeos in 2009 and 2010, so she’s been there and done that. In late summer of this year I started her on THE’s Muscle Mass. After it started to take effect, she’s made the best runs of her life, so I wouldn’t be surprised if she starts clocking even better. I only had a few runs on her when it kicked in, and it seems to have shaved off a couple tenths, so her stats could improve even more. I really think she would be a little faster with a smaller rider than I. 

I didn’t run her at many amateurs this summer, since I was hauling several horses, and she runs great indoors. Shy has never been lame, hasn’t had injections, and has good bone and feet. She can run barefoot, but runs more aggressive with front rims. I leave her backs bare. She is outstanding at the gate—run in or walk in and set up. She waits for you to let her go. She has done ranch work, and we’ve pen roped calves on her a handful of times. She would be an incredible breakaway horse—very powerful to calves, tracks nicely already, and has a big stop. Never mare-ish--I don't even know when she's in heat. 

Shy needs at least an intermediate rider, since she is so broke. Her only vice is that she is fearful when being caught—she is an extremely sensitive type. This makes her a dream to ride as you never have to ask her twice, and she gives 100% every day. She does not pull back, stalls great, is an easy keeper, no buck, no rear, and I just can’t express how much fun she is to run. 

Email me for a stat sheet of this year’s runs, and/or just google “French Man Dorky” and “Frenchman Dorky" (sometimes her name is spelled incorrectly). Lots of videos of her at

Thank you and good luck to Terra Micek of Nebraska. She will be competing in college rodeo in the Central Plains region.

2007 Bay Gelding
Sun Frost Country x Plum Especial/Especial

This fun little gelding can scoot!  He will be solid and experienced.  He is being futuritied at South Dakota and Nebraska futurities this year, and currently usually runs 2D.  He's starting to learn to stretch out and run, and with a small rider, I have no doubt that this can be a 1D horse.  He is very soft and bendy and is already showing great maturity and consistency.  I did run him at one amateur rodeo this year, and he ran four tenths out of placing, during his first loud nighttime performance.  This shows that he will be able to handle rodeo conditions soon.

This horse is loaded with try, giving you his best effort with no attitude, every day.  He could make a great youth horse for a confident, as he is safe to run, has no buck or rear, and is just the same horse every day.  He is a push style runner, and will go your speed.  There are no tricks to riding him--just send him hard to the first, and guide him through!  He hauls very well--stalls well, and eats and drinks on the road.  

KK Lonsum Frost has a proven pedigree, top and bottom.  Sun Frost Country has sired many WPRA and futurity winners, including TM Sakem Drift.  On the bottom, Especial has sired champions like Jess Routier's Especials Smoothie and Linda Vick’s AR Will He Tell.  Country Rebel and John Red were rated AAA in South Dakota.

KK Lonsum Frost is eligible for most of the northern breeders futurities, and has been entered in most of the breeders and open futurities this year, so he will be eligible for many derbies and maturities next year.  He is paid into the BRIF incentive, and is eligible for PESI.  

Thank you and good luck to Lorie Cline of Hildreth, NE.

KK Sun Frost Twister is a 5 year old red roan (dark now, but will probably lighten with age) with a flaxen mane. He is nicely broke--not real fancy yet, but has all the basics and is ready to go on. Twister has not been pushed physically, and has a solid foundation. He is loping a nice barrel pattern. Quiet but works for you, gentle, and has been ridden outside. Don't let all that Sun Frost breeding fool you--this is a kind, gentle, sweet gelding. No buck--I rode him sporadically this cold winter, and he was the same every day even if if had been two weeks since I'd gotten on him. He has been ridden out in the pasture and does great. Great all-around prospect! 

Sun Frost Country is proven both as a champion competitor and as a champion sire. He is a Derby, 1D and rodeo money earner. He has sired many futurity, derby, and pro rodeo champions including TM Cider Ike, TM Sakem Drift, TM Seeker Drift, Heza Sun Frost, KK Bay Frost, and KK Country Cougar.

SOLD! KK Lonsum Frost
SOLD! MRQH Spectacular Guy
Available -- AMR Uno Bueno


I have this very pretty, classy, 4 yr old (2013) solid bay filly in on consignment/for sale. 

 AMR Uno Bueno has had about 30 days of riding before I received her, and I’ve had her for a week. She is 14.2 but has some growing left to do. She’s in the middle of a power pack, so just keep feeding her, and she’ll shed out gorgeous next spring. She is put together very correctly. Her neck comes out of her shoulder high, and she has that nice round hip. Her personality is very kind and sweet, will be quiet but not lazy, and is very smart and aware. She has that confident personality that says she will perform. She naturally wants to be very soft in the face and body. 

 Her pedigree is stacked with performance, and she is athletic, so she should be able to go in any direction. Majors Gold Bars is a competitive barrel horse running in South Dakota. She was ridden outside quite a bit during her first 30 days, and I will be working on her foundation until sold. 

 Riding, my fifth day on her. Working on face, shoulder, ribs:

 I apologize that we go out of frame sometimes. I ride by myself most of the time and the barrel is my videographer.
