At Painted Sky Ranch we strive to produce AQHA all around ranch using horses, as well as high caliber AQHA show prospects, with the highest quality of pedigree, confirmation, and all around performance ability.

Our colts are all bred and raised to have kind dispositions, good sound minds, trainability and the durability that ranch horses of the past were made of... 

Our colts are all handled daily with love and understanding, from the day that they are born.  Starting at birth we play and  handle our foals,  in such a way that encourages their natural curiosity. Then after their milk teeth come in they are taught to respect, but not fear, their human handlers. They are taught to halter, lead, tie, pick up their hoofs and stand to be groomed.  Through out the first month of our foals' lives they are slowly introduced to our herd of broodmares, foals, yearlings and our stallion.  Then at about 1 month of age they along with their mother join the herd and are from then on ranch raised...

Ranch raised means that our colts are raised on the land and in a herd environment. Raising colts off the land develops strong bones, hardiness and durability. They also develop the instincts and confidence that nurtures a strong mind, that is unmatched by barn raised colts. Ranch raised colts are also slower growing, but made solid and built to last! Ranch raised colts tend to mature later then barn raise colts and typically mature around 6- 7 years of age. 

Growing up in a herd environment also teaches colts valuable social skills and to respect authority.

Daily handling involves everything from just a simple scratch and some love, to being haltered and groomed, to wearing a baby saddle and being ponied, down the trail.  All colt handling is designed to create a learning environment that encourages curiosity, respect for authority, a desire to please, and an eagerness to learn, all of which develops a good sound mind and trainability.

         2002 sorrel Apendix AQHA mare


Open Broodmare. Sells as a broodmare only due to an injury she received this summer, on her front right pastern. She may heal and may get sound, but as of right now she is still pretty sore on it. The wound is closed up and trying to heal, does not appear to have an obvious scar, but she is sore on it still. This mare is broke to ride and has had a lot of miles up in the back country, so if her leg heals then she could make for a nice trail horse, would just need a tune up because she has not been ridden for about a year or so.
Rocket is a really nice mule colt that will be 2 next spring. He is an outstanding all around prospect! Extremely athletic! This guy could take you any place you want to go...up mountains, through rivers, work cows, dressage, jumping, pack you name it! We own and trained both  his sire and sister and they are both amazing... Both are soft, supple and responsive, they ride off your body and legs and barely need any rein at all and both ride in a halter. Both also have been packed, ridden heavily in the mountains, through rivers, on the roads, and they both work cows and rope. I've been around mules and donks my entire life and nothing compares to the athleticism and responsiveness of these guys. With this guy you wont be disappointed!!!  text.
