KT King of Hollywood

KT King of Hollywood is a phenomenal colt out of KT Copper Doc Lona, “Lona,” and by Doll Docsan, “Leroy.” Lona is out of Docs Sizzle Bar and Copper War Chic, “Chicken”. Chicken was a great cow horse and show horse that we had for many years. We did not start breeding Chicken until she was in her 20s, so we only got three foals out of her, one filly and two colts. We broke Lona to ride and have used her as a broodmare. Lona’s grandsire was Willie War Chic, ROM Race ~ SI 95. Loan’s breeding also includes, Sizzlin Hot, Docs Dee Bar, Ed Echols and more. Leroy is a stallion with a performance packed pedigree along with a very good disposition. He was a very smooth ride with tremendous talent, beautiful movement and huge stop. He was quiet and trainable which he passes along to his foals; he consistently produces fantastic foals with looks, color, conformation and brains. Leroy was unshown due to a wire cut injury that took a long time to heal; it happened just before hitting the showpen as a 3 year old and as a result he was turned out to the studpen. Leroy has produced 1 foal that has NRHA earnings. He also has a 3 year old competing in Western Dressage, was 3rd in Canada in July 2016 and has racked up more 1st place finishes since then. He is sired by Dolls Union Jac- ROM, NRHA earnings, and sired foals that have earnings in excess of $310,000.00 in NRHA, as well as earnings in NRCHA, Buckskin Assoc., and the AQHA world show. Leroy’s dam is Docsan Jeany who has produced foals with earnings in excess of $3700.00 and AQHA point earners. Leroy is also double registered with NFQHA at 92%. He was born 5/2/18. $4,500

Breeding Mares, Angus Show and more

Monday was a pretty normal day, as far as ranch life goes. I guess what I mean is that nothing died, nothing was born, and nothing ran through the fence. Tuesday dad headed to Yakima with Stinger and Pistol, Stinger to get AIed and Pistol for a recheck. Pistol had absorbed her foal, so we decided we would bring her home and breed her naturally. Toni also had to go to a different vet when Dad got back with Lemon Drop to get her ready to move to California. Lemon Drop loaded great and did great. She is a pretty nice 2 year old. Two emergency vehicles drove by with sirens blaring when Lemon Drop was being vetted, and she stood like a champ. She has just been an exceptionally fun young horse. Super happy to be with people. Mil went to her trainer and we are getting lots of updates about how well she is adjusting.


Thursday Blue foaled, and had a fancy colt with two blues eyes and a really cool blaze. I was hoping he was a filly so I could keep him, even though Dad does not like blue eyed horses and never wants to keep them. Madison came out to look at Rosie’s filly and fell in love with her. Madison is currently running high school rodeo and one of her geldings is a Zink son.


Friday dad went back up and got Stinger and Pistol. He had to be back by noon so I could get the trailer loaded for our cattle show. Our Braford heifer calved and had a cute black ballie heifer. Then, in the afternoon Toni, Anna, Kaine, Kade and I headed to Ellensburg for the Jr Angus Field day. We weren’t able to unload until 4, so we rolled in at about 3:45. The heifers unloaded great and acted like the pros that they are. We had five head that we hauled to Ellensburg, four of them were shown last year quite a bit. Both Anna and Kaine have 2 big heifers.


Saturday the kids had a great day showing, all three made it back to the championship round in showmanship. Anna had the Grand Champion Sr. Yearling Bred and Owned heifer with Mal. Anna, Kaine and Kade all did well with their January heifers. We had a great time and got to see our showfamily and cousins. The best part was that there was an art show and auction at the fairgrounds at the same time, and a taco wagon right outside of our barn. The other really great thing was we stayed in a hotel, so all got hot showers.


Sunday we had a VERY busy day. Rachel came out and took Friday up to ride her. Erina and Terry came out to see Katana and they bought Hot Shot of Mocha while they were out. Michelle and John came out for their anniversary to look at the foals, especially their 2 year old colt’s full brother, Big Iron. Then we moved Blue in with Colonel and Pepper out with Gunner. The kids washed their show heifers and turned Darma out. We had three groups of people come out to look at horses on Sunday, along with celebrating our Uncle Skip’s birthday which was on Saturday while we were gone. Sunday was a get everything done day, so we kept at it until we couldn’t keep going. We did get everything that was necessary done, like moving the mares around so we don’t miss their heat cycles. We also decided to try breeding Pistol to Reed, so that could be a really cool combination. This week the kids get ready for a jackpot show with their steers, Lemon Drop left for CA, and we are getting ready to put another embryo in a cow. We are officially done Aiing both cows and horses, and we are not accepting anymore outside mares. With this hot weather coming on, it is time to get the breeding done before the pasture is gone. Looking forward to Summer weather and these last few foals we are still waiting on.

This morning we had a CUTE blue roan colt out of Izzy and by Bishop, this is OUR first Bishop foal, we bred a few outside mares to him and one of those has already foaled.
