The Driftwoods... for the classic Blue Valentine cross • Our concentration of Driftwood blood started with the Stanley and Randy Johnston mares. These mares were a blend of Driftwood, Poco Speedy, Orphan Drift, Sak Em San (son of Peppy San), Doc’s Jack Frost (sire of Sun Frost) and Captain Crusade. We bred these mares to our Blue Valentine stallions. • Another good cross was My Drifty Pride and daughters of Gooseberry. This proven program, through Valentine Drift, has given us genetic strength and diversity for the future.

“Randy” is one of the last sons of Blue’s Beard, and we think he’s the best. He has a nice hip and a kind disposition. He earned points in heeling with limited showing at aqha shows in 2001, ridden by Shot Branham. He also sired the National Foundation Performance Review Champion, Laramie Blues.

“Cowboy” is a big powerful horse that is quick and can really stop hard. He has earned his ROM in heading and heeling, qualified for the AQHA World Show and won the Oklahoma State Fair team roping. He is easy to be around and has lots of personality. He comes to about 22% Joe Hancock blood and over 8% Peter McCue. He has made an excellent cross on our Blue Valentine mares. He’s a true blue champion! Dick Van Pelt

Chip Merritt

We looked around for a stud that met our criteria for preserving the Blue Valentine bloodlines. After breeding some mares to this horse and getting all outstanding colts, we decided to purchase him. Chip remembers roping calves and punching cows on Rowdy Blue Man and Blue Fox Hastings was a full sister to Gooseberry. He’s 50% Blue Valentine and the extra Plenty Coup is a bonus.

We named him this because in blood he is 43.75% Blue Valentine. People who knew Rojo when he was younger have said this horse looks and acts just like him. He is the closest thing to Rojo that has been raised. We believe he has an exciting future ahead of him. 15 hands and 1300 lbs. Randy Dunn

If you follow our breeding program, we don’t use or buy outside studs. But we found “Moon” and bought half-interest in him from fellow breeder and friend Jerry Jeppson. He’s homozygous black and 43.75% Blue Valentine. He’s a little more refined and modern than some of the traditional high % Blue Valentine sires around. We are excited to cross him on our Rojo, Gooseberry, Leo Hancock Hayes and Roan Ambrose daughters. Chip Merritt

Here’s an extraordinary stallion with Blue Valentine Diversity and ideal conformation. He is 43.75% Blue Valentine. This breeding has crossed well with everything. His colts are gentle and trainable and we have some in the sale.

Raider has the whole package. He's 40% Blue Valentine and goes back 9 times. He's quiet and so gentle that we used him as a babysitter when we weaned our colts. He is athletic and we've started roping on him. He's a perfect cross to perpetuate the Blue Valentine blood and complement the Driftwoods.

Bath Bros Ranch

Randy and Laurie Dunn - Carrying on the Bath Family Tradition

My ancestors, the Baths, came to Laramie in the spring of 1868. The railroad followed in the fall, and the Territory of Wyoming was formed. The Baths built the first wood-framed building in Laramie in 1869 before moving to the Little Laramie Valley to start raising cattle and horses. The Bath Brothers had a long and strong tradition of raising good using horses and reputation cattle. In the 1930’s, they raised Remount Horses for the government. They began raising Quarter Horses in the late 30’s, and became AQHA members in the early 40’s. My wife, Laurie, and I continue the 140+ year tradition of raising quality horses on the same ranch. We still use the family’s original AQHA number (#7965) as our Lifetime AQHA number, and carry on the same principles that have been handed down for seven generations in the Bath family. Our horses are easy keepers with good minds, speed, bone, and tons of cow and athletic ability.

Our ranch is one of the oldest working ranches in Wyoming and our brand is one of the oldest recorded in the state. Our horses are raised in big, open pastures along side of the cattle. We use the horses we raise and feel they offer the genetic strength to perform and compete in any discipline or arena. Our program includes 4 grandsons and 31 granddaughters of Blue Valentine. We are ranchers raisin’ good horses! ~ Randy Dunn

Running M geldings - your source for TESTED quality performance horses. Billy Ward - Riding and Selling Bath Bros horses.

PRCA 7-time NFR pickup man and friend, Billy Ward, is exclusively riding and marketing our geldings. To date Billy has taken more than 50 geldings from Bath Bros. As a pick-up man, Billy has to be mounted on GOOD horses. Running M horses have consistently proven to be what he needs to get the job done. Billy has taken, and is taking, over 20 head to Cheyenne Frontier Days and Rodeos all over the country. These horses perform in the various parades, carry dignitaries during the rodeo and both Billy and Dalton (his son) will use them to pick-up off of. There is not much these horses have not seen or done by the time they are 5. This exposure, coupled with trainability and athleticism, is what makes these geldings a perfect choice for anyone looking for a horse to GET THE JOB DONE! Contact Billy at 307-575-0695 and talk to him about a horse that will work for you. Lot 23

Merritt Quarter Horses Chip, Kathy, Brady & Corey The Start of A Tradition...

It all began in 1880 when my great-grandfather, Vince Hayes, trailed a herd of good mares from Ft. Riley, Nevada to Thermopolis, Wyoming. His two sons, Buster and Laurie, continued the tradition of raising and riding top horses and sought ways to improve them. Around 1951, they purchased Texas Blue Bonnet, a son of Joe Hancock. They started crossing him on their own mares and in 1955 a Patron mare bred to him produced a foal named Plenty Coup, who went on to also produce many top colts.

Vince Hayes in the late 1800s.

At about the same time my grandfather, King Merritt, brought one of the first Quarter Horse stallions, “Old Red Buck P-9” to Wyoming. As a respected horseman, King had judged the first Quarter Horse show in California. He and all his children were well known for their horsemanship skills. King and his son Hyde brought additional stallions to Wyoming, including Ambrose and Patron. Hyde inherited from his father the satisfaction of riding a good horse he knew he had raised. In the fall of 1956, Ken Gunter gave Del Haverty the pick of the Red Man colts. Del picked a blue roan stallion named Blue Valentine. Del trained Blue to rope Buster and Laurie Hayes calves, tie-down team rope, and haze dogging steers. Blue later was most famous as a steer roping horse but Del always felt he was a better calf horse than anything. Del sold half interest in Blue Valentine to Buster and Laurie Hayes. Buster and Laurie stood Texas Blue Bonnet, Plenty Coup, and Blue Valentine. It was quite an experience to see these studs out with the excellent set of mares Buster and Laurie had accumulated. The tradition continued when my mother, Dede (Buster’s daughter), married my father, Hyde. Hyde started breeding his Ambrose mares to Hayes’ Plenty Coup, then took that cross and bred to Blue Valentine. This program produced the stallion Gooseberry, Crow Creek (Lory’s top calf horse), and many good mares.

Buster Hayes with three sons of Texas Blue Bonnet.

Hyde and Dede then bought the other half interest in Blue Valentine from Del. Hyde felt like it was a great privilege to rope steers on Blue. In 1970 Hyde roped at his last Cheyenne Frontier Days on Blue. Everet Shaw, who rode his share of great steer roping horses, told Hyde that Blue was the best horse at Cheyenne that year. Hyde and Del both felt that Blue started out of the box quicker and could catch cattle easier than any horse they had ridden. The combination of Blue’s athletic ability and Del’s training made him hard to beat.

The Tradition Lives On...

Gathering Blue Valentine Two and his mares. Kathy and I continue this tradition by raising horses with as much Texas Blue Bonnet, Plenty Coup, Ambrose and Blue Valentine as possible, hoping to preserve the heritage of these great bloodlines. Offering the best horses we can raise is what we work on all year round. What we bring to the sale each year is no accident. Kathy & I work diligently with the future of these horses in mind. We know what the two of us like in a horse, but the direction of our breeding program involves a lot more than that. Each year’s colt crop represents our efforts to improve upon the last. People tell us that these horses have such good dispositions. No matter what different things we do with a horse, we all want to ride one that’s gentle, versatile and athletic.

This is the mother of Lot #6 and grandmother of Lot #36 Blue Bonnie Hayes (Brady's mare)

A HUGE THANK YOU to our family and friends, and our Come To The Source partners. To those of you who love these bloodlines and give us a reason to keep them going...OUR ENDLESS APPRECIATTION!

Blue Bonnet was a part of Come To The Source since the start. Even though Kathy and I knew early on he would made an outstanding stud, we had no idea the kind of name he would make for himself. He was an incredible individual. A number of sons and daughters have been high sellers and we are riding sons and a daughter of his at home. He was the best.....we were lucky to have him as long as we did. RANCH RAISED • ATHLETIC

It is nestled at the base of the Laramie Range of mountains at about 7400 feet above sea level. The high plains of Wyoming, its good hard grass, cold mountain water and acres and acres of bright blue unpolluted sky is home to the Van Pelt string of top quality ranch bred working cow horses going back to Blue Valentine, Joe Hancock and Leo. We know everyone likes a choice and we're here to offer it to you. From working ranch horses, to team roping and winning barrel horses that can run a hole in the wind......we'll have it all, and we'll have one for you.

Dick and Dianne

On Friday Afternoon we will have a warm up of our riding horses for Saturday’s preview. So come take a peek.

Every year we like to elevate our program to a higher level. We are still striving toward that goal. We think you will see the results of that effort again this year. As I have tried to slow down, I have leased out some mares to Roy and Brandee Gillum who help run the family ranch at Peetz, Colorado. This year, in addition to having some nice color, they are bringing some fine riding horses. This is a wonderful family who have met all my highest hopes of junior partners as I slow down in my horse operation.

The Gillum Family

Greg Frye and his family continue to be an important part of our horse operation. Greg starts most of my horses and his son and daughters have become excellent hands over the years and they will do a lot of work with these horses that will show on sale day. Their horses will be gentle and accustomed to being in a lot of different situations including bull whips, umbrellas, tarps, slickers and dogs. It's an amazing family and what they produce is also amazing. Clayton Van Aken has had lots of irons in the fire this summer. After the college finals, he started four two year olds for us. Lydia Cole has also helped so Clayton could go on the PRCA Rodeo circuit with Laramie local, Paul Beckett. Together they have had lots of success and on Sunday the 28th of July he and Paul competed in the short round of the "Daddy of them All" Cheyenne Frontier Days.

Everyone has a choice...thank you for choosing us. It was very rewarding to receive pictures of Linus Clark and Clay O’Brien Cooper winning the 4th Annual Sweetest Loop Pro-Am Roping in 2009. Linus is riding an 8-yr-old son of Blue Hancock Cowboy out of a Leo bred mare. Linus trained this horse himself and Clay was impressed with the horse’s consistency. He commented on the excellent handles knowing all he had to do was come around the corner and do his job. Congratulations to both Clay and Linus and their good horses.

Danny Schicke has won a lot of team roping on this big blue horse and we have more like him this year.

If you like this color of blue and this level of quality horses - you're gonna love what we have coming to the sale this year. Sorry, these 3 now speak French & are being shown in Europe.

The ultimate reward for me is when a youngster like little Wylee Cheney takes one of my horses and goes on to win. She won this saddle with one of Vista Grande's versatile horses - Good job Wylee and good luck this year! This is Bay Roan Dividend who I have chosen to replace Blues Roan Hancock (Randy). He is by Blues Roan Hancock and out of a double bred Dividend Coup mare. If my wife has her way I will cut down the number of mares I run and he will be a replacement for Jimmy, my good rope horse. Although I do not plan to sell him....I have found myself pricing him recently.

I've always liked to put a little speed in our horses, but really wasn't thinking about barrel horses. I've been excited to see how well Laramie's own Stacey Smallwood has done with her son of Blues Roan Hancock,who is a grandson of Blue Valentine who goes back to Jet Deck. Stacey qualified "Right Flashy" to go to the BBR World finals in Oklahoma City this year in April where she placed 39th out of 1800 head of barrel horses! Congratulations Stacey and thank you for being such a good example of what horses from Vista Grande Ranch can achieve.

Out of Kathy's favorite mare, this black stud almost didn't leave the place. JoAnn had him really broke when he was three. We had the opportunity to get him back, and since we have 2 full brothers to him, we decided to offer him in the sale. Brady has started roping on him. We'll have videos on the website middle of August.

This one is hard so lets get it over with. Ms Berry Blue has treated me very well. She needs to go to a warmer country. She was bred on May 17, 2013 to Blues Roan Hancock so the the foal will be a full sibling to Laramie Blues, a National Foundation Champion. Take care of this mare and she will take care of you.

We've sold a lot of nice colts out of this mare. One of her earlier sons, Wyo Blue Hayes, is now in the midwest where they use him as a stallion and to rope calves on in AQHA. Miss Plenty Coup and Miss Coup were both nice mares from the Hayes' breeding program. You can have this hard-to-find mare as a result of our cutting back. She sells with her 2013 filly by Bonny Blues. Not sure if she'll be roan.

"Orlando" was one of Jennaya's favorites and she has gathered lots of yearlings on him. Besides being a good using horse, he is 17% Joe Hancock by blood and should work on lots of mares. He has an old injury on his right front ankle that doesn't bother him and the x-rays show he’s clean. He will lope smooth and stop hard.

Thank you for coming to The Source. Hope you are having a good time.

I believe this horse can live up to his name, meaning that by sale time he should be ready to just get on and go to work. He has a great disposition and is showing some interest in cows already. He was ridden a little this spring to sort pairs and move them to summer pastures, and he is making some wet saddle blankets this summer to check those cows.
