some things haven't changed... A lot of people came to our early sales, and started creating their own programs around horses they bought here. It was the horses that brought people to Laramie then, and it's the same today. Some things haven't changed... It's rewarding to see many successful breeding programs that started out with horses from The Source. People come up and say these horses are the best they have ridden. They write in with stories how their kids are growing up and competing on them. We want to thank all of these customers, especially the ones who have been here year after year. We started out as one of the few places you could get horses with Blue Valentine bloodlines. Our vision took a lot of hard work and planning. We're fortunate to have a sale that still brings new customers and welcomes back repeat buyers. After all these years, the Original Source is still here. Look at the pedigrees - the names are the same as they were back then. Some things haven't changed... We appreciate you sharing your passion with us, and are grateful for the continued support.

This stud was a big part of our breeding program. He was big (15.1 and 1460 lbs) kind, gentle, an easy mover with a lot of athletic ability. He had a disposition that was hard to beat. There are a lot of nice horses by him out there.

Plenty Try was around when Chip and Kathy got married, and was the foundation of their Blue Valentine journey. Plenty Try daughters left their mark and there are only a few of them left. An Original Come To The Source Stallion.

This horse was an important piece of our puzzle in preserving the Blue Valentine bloodlines. His pedigree worked with all our mares. He was 50% Blue Valentine and had extra Plenty Coup a bonus. Chip remembers roping calves on Rowdy Blue Man. Blue Fox Hastings was a full sister to Gooseberry.

M

y 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 woodframed 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. Our program includes 4 grandsons and 31 granddaughters of Blue Valentine. We are now successfully crossing these with Driftwood to make exceptional multidiscipline performance horses. We use the horses we raise and feel they offer the genetic strength to perform and compete in any discipline or arena. We are ranchers raisin’ good horses! ~ Randy Dunn

F

rontier Rodeo Company, one of the premiere rodeo companies in the world (based out of Winnie, TX, and Freedom, OK), provides world class bucking stock for rodeos from Florida to Oregon, and most states in between. They are one of the largest suppliers of stock at the National Finals Rodeo, and the primary stock contractor for RFD TV’s “The American”, the world’s richest one-day rodeo competition. Owner, Jerry Nelson, and his staff, take pride in continuing to raise award-wining livestock, as has been proven by Frontier Rodeo’s winning of over 19 international and National Finals Rodeo awards since 2005, including 2015, 2016, 2017 & 2018 Stock Contractor of the Year and 2016 Remuda award.

Several years ago, Frontier Rodeo began laying over bucking stock (hundreds of head of horses and bulls), at Bath Bros Ranch, between summer rodeo events. During this venture, we have fostered a great relationship with Heath Stewart, Frontier’s Geneticist and Rodeo Administrator. Being the man behind Frontier’s slogan, “Breeding Ground for Champions,” Heath has a remarkable eye for high quality horses and superb genetics. In 2012, Heath began using Bath Bros mounts into his saddle horse string, where they continue to perform exceptionally for pick-up men and dignitaries alike. Our goal is for Heath, and the Frontier Crew, to continue developing and offering 6-8 excellent minded, well-travelled, and well-broke, Bath Bros horses for sale annually. Heath can be contacted at hstewart302@gmail.com or (580) 7470233 for further information.

It is quite a process to bring in all the mares and sort them, and their foals, into these groups. It is quite a sight to see over 100 mares at the home place. The studs always put on a good show gathering up their mares.


Carrying on the Bath Family Tradition The Ward Family -

Riding and Selling Bath Bros Horses…

P

RCA 7-Time NFR pick-up man, and friend, Billy Ward, and his family, have been exclusively riding and marketing Bath Bros geldings since 2007. Each year, the Ward Family takes over 20 head of Bath Bros horses to rodeos all across the United States, including Cheyenne Frontier Days. To date, they have taken, and ridden, well over 100 geldings from the ranch! By the time these horses are five, Billy Ward “pickin’ up” there is not much that they have not seen or done. Most of them have worked cattle on the ranch, drug calves to the fire for branding, spruced up several parades at Cheyenne Frontier Days, moved stock in the back alleys, and picked up cowboys at rodeos across the country. This exposure, coupled with the Bath Bros trainability and athleticism is what makes these geldings a proven choice for anyone looking for the perfect horse for any job. Billy “retired” as a PRCA pick-up man in 2015, but the Running M Tradition continues in the Ward Family, as his son, Dalton and wife Charla, continues the need for exceptional mounts in his pick-up man career and Charla’s arena horses. Contact Billy at (307) 575-0695 or Dalton at (307) 575-2146, to talk about these great horses!

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.

Gathering Blue Valentine Two and his mares.

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. We work diligently with the future of these horses in mind. 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.

However, I have frozen semen on Wyo Blue Valentine if you are interested.

I’m sure you will find some good looking prospects from our progam in the sale this year. Maybe even this one, shown here with Sander Hillman.

Weston Hurst will be riding Lot 20, a horse Riyatta started. Riyatta got married last year and they are starting a family, so I’ve lost one of my good horse trainers. Seems like they all grow up! I met Weston at the Come to the Source sale when he was riding some horses for Roy Gillham. I liked his way with horses and I was lucky enough to have him ride this outstanding well-bred gelding. Weston lives in NE Colorado on a small cattle ranch and does everything from working cattle and horses to maintaining heavy equipment on wind turbines! Married with one little girl; he is a busy guy. Weston tells me this horse did not skip a beat – he began earning his keep on day one. We have a great video on this gelding. He turned out to be one of our really exciting “chocolates” out of our “Box of Chocolates!

We kept two full sisters to be potential broodmares, so we’ll let you enjoy this one. Her dam acted broke from the first saddling, but has enough energy to really make it happen when you need to sort a cow. My Dad was so disappointed when we turned her in with the broodmares because he loved to ride her. We love the pedigree, and believe the bottom side really adds to the agility of these horses. This filly will be kind and capable.

Want a speed horse? Want a power horse? Want a gentle horse? It’s all right here, and how often do all those ingredients get mixed into one product? This nice mare should ride as good or better than her Mama who always wanted to please...met me at the gate, saddled and rode mellow, until I asked for speed, then the racing wind pulled tears from my eyes. Jun Jun Ni (great great grand-sire) was a horse who never placed lower then 3rd in the Quarter Horse Triple Crown races.

Carrie Frisbee has been with Come To The Source since back when Sam was with us. She's bringing 6 colts by her stallion Dun Blue Bonnet. "He's so easy going and laid back anyone can ride him, but he will also get down and work for you when asked. This is his first foal crop for me this year."

Travis McNiven has been in partnership with Dick in the past. This year he is bringing 5 colts by his staillion Wyo Rowdy Hayes. Travis says this horse has a good mind and stamps his foals with his disposition, clean head, and nice hip. 15.2 hands and 43.75% Blue Valentine.

Roy and Brandee Gillham are fourth generation ranchers in northeastern Colorado. Gillham’s have been in partnership with Dick and are very honored to be involved in the sale again this year. They have four young sons learning to be horsemen, so they are finding that cattle and kids are both good for making a dependable using horse. Roy is riding his stud Mahalas Blue Cash above - the picture says it all. "We are very honored to be involved in the sale again this year. A HUGE thank you to the partners" Videos and pictures available on Facebook at Cross I Quarter Horses
