For the twenty-sixth year, the Van Norman & Friends Production Sale will be held at the Elko County Fairgrounds in Elko, Nevada, on September 16-17 2022. The sale offers something for everyone, with approximately 85 horses ranging in age and ability from weanlings to bridle horses. Most of the horses come from several long-time established ranch horse breeding programs of the northern Great Basin, with the addition of several invited guest consignors whose horses meet the standard of quality buyers have come to expect from our sale. The breeding programs represented include sires by proven classic and contemporary horses, with a predominance of Colonel Freckles and Peptoboonsmal breeding. Other sires of these programs are sons and grandsons of High Brow Cat, Hollywood Dun It, Bert, Smart Chic Olena, Smart Little Lena, Boonlight Dancer, Playgun, and others, with equally strong maternal lines. In recent years several of our breeders have introduced an arena-based component with the addition of stallions with Frenchman Guy bloodlines. Horses in the sale are ranch raised, and the majority of riding horses selling will have been used as working ranch horses, many with “town” experience as well. Sellers follow the vaquero tradition of training, with young saddle horses being ridden in the snaffle bit, and older horses being in the hackamore, two-rein, or bridle depending on their age. Weanlings and yearlings will be broke to lead and load. In addition to watching online videos of sale horses prior to the sale, buyers can preview aged riding horses in person beginning at 10 am on Friday, September 16. This preview will also be live-streamed. The auction will also be live-streamed, with internet and phone bidding available. For details contact Linda Bunch: (775) 756-6508 or (775) 934-7404 or email, For updates and current information visit or the Van Norman and friends Production Sale Facebook page.

“Mac” is the most versatile horse we have ever owned. We use him for everything from picking up bucking horses, branding, gathering, roping, and the kids ride him too. He travels very well outside and gives 110% at whatever you ask him to do. He is very kind and passes his gentle and willing attitude on to his offspring. He has great feet and bone.

“Big Chief” is a finished head and heel horse we found in Arizona two years ago. Proven blood lines top and bottom for cowhorse and reining!! Extremely good minded. Ty’s twelveyear-old daughter started roping both ends off of him after a year lay off without even an ear flicker from him!! Hollywood Dun Its are known for their great dispositions, which is a number one requirement for the Van Norman program. His colts are good looking and well put together. This sire is a great addition, adding top notch qualities that make for great ranch horses that can double as performance horses.

We are really pleased with the progeny he is siring and look forward to showing some of his babies in cow horse events. “Drifter” has been getting his turn as a using horse at the Shelman Ranch and he’s a handy cow horse that is always a pleasure to be around. We look for him to continue to pass on his good looks, brains, athleticism and cow sense. We enjoy working with his colts and think you will also. An investment in his colts will be good property for years to come.Cory and Jaris shelman, Burns, or (208) 539-1567 Bert

MISS COLONEL REDWOOD DOCS REDWOOD REBA Redwood Patti Frenchie brings some complimentary outcross bloodlines to our program. While his ped igree’s bottom side offers classic cutting bloodlines, the top side brings in prominent and highly successful arena horse breeding. Frenchmans Guy and Flit Bar are both legendary barrel horse sires, but in the true spirit of quarter horse versatility, Flit Bar also sired winners in cutting, racing, and halter classes, and Frenchmans Guy offspring are competitors in all of rodeo’s timed events. As a saddle horse, Frenchie is light and quick-footed, with a blend of kindness, sensibility and speed that seems to cross quite well with our cowhorse mares. His foals are proving to be quite personable, easy-going, versatile and athletic. Five panel N/N.

Fret is from a “top 1% family.” Boonlight Dancer won the NRCHA Snaffle Bit Futurity, Crackin was an NCHA Open Reserve Champion and had life-time earnings of $133,04 and produced offspring with earnings in excess of $350,000. A half-sister Kwackin x Crackin produced Smart Crackin Chic another NRCHA Futurity Champion. A full-brother Nabis co Roan has been successfully shown by Jake Telford with multiple AQHA and NRCHA Championships to his credit. Fret was trained for two years by Bobby Ingersoll and shown in the NRCHA Snaffle Bit Futurity. Placed 3rd in NSS Open Snaffle with Cory Shelman. His offspring are receiving high acclaim from their owners for their good minds and ability. 5 PANEL N/N. Photo by Nicole Poyo. (rs)


MISS OAK Gay Bar King / Miss Roan Oak Freckled Lil Pepto, a 2005 red roan stallion is our latest star. “Preacher” is a really well-pro portioned stallion with an amazing temperament and oodles of cow. He is as comfortable in reined cow horse shows as he is weaning calves in the fall or branding calves in the spring. He was trained and shown to several victories by Flint Lee who has to fight with Sharon and Cowboy to get him back to prepare for show season. Both Sharon and Cowboy love to ride him. He is that neat of a horse. Needless to say, he is showing a lot of promise as a reined cow horse, a dependable ranch horse, and as a sire. Colts are eligible for the Nevada Stallion Stakes.

Not an average pedigree—nor an average horse! Google this pedigree, and you will be reading for days. Several NFR barrel racing qualifiers have run horses with these identical bloodlines the last two years. Frenchman’s Guy has a reputation for good minds and trainability; Dash Ta Fame has the reputation not only for speed, but rate and turning. So far “Puddin’s” first colt crop seem to have a laid-back disposition like him, speed and rate plus quite a bit of stop crossed on Van Norman cowhorse mares!! It never hurts to add a little speed to a cowhorse, or a little whoa to a running horse. Van norman Quarter Horses, Inc. tuscarora, nV (775) 397-2132 • ty ranchhorse@gmail com

“Happy Feet” came to us in a big package when we bought his dam. He has been raised on the ranch. We were happy with him as a colt and he showed a lot of talent, so we kept him for a sire. So far, we are quite pleased with that decision. Happy Feet has been ridden by Michael Vipham and Cowboy. He is another really useful horse in our ranch world. This horse has been exposed to all ranch work including working cattle, roping, and a circle horse. He has been great at all of those jobs and he comes by his ranch name honestly! Our main purpose for him, though, is to further enhance our breeding program. You get a sneak preview of what’s to come with one of his two-year-olds in this sale. He isn’t a real big horse, but he doesn’t know that, and makes up for it with his great mind and equally great disposition.

Ty started JP Colonel Blackcatt and quickly decided to further his training. In 2012 the young sire was in reined cow horse training with Clayton Edsal. He has been shown at local stock horse events with plans to finish his training into the bridle. Now back at the ranch, the upcoming feature horse is pulling double duty as a sire and a stock horse. This horse doesn’t have the size to be an ideal head horse, but no doubt has everything to make a perfect heel horse, reined cow horse, and ranch horse. Cimarron Oakie / Straw Skipbar

This is an excellent up and coming sire out of a top producing Van Norman bred mare and by Sophisticated Catt (a three-time AQHA world champion with lifetime earnings over $192,000 in cutting.)

He is balanced with good bone and feet. His sire High Roller Rey is a 2009 red roan son of Dual Rey, out of daughter of Peptoboonsmal.

IMA SMART REMEDY Little Lena Remedys “Kokomo” is the most recent addition to our stallion line up. He’s the product of proven producers top and bottom, sired by Smart Boons and out of a money earning daughter of Shining Spark. The old adage about the blood running to the brain certainly seems to hold true with him. He’s shown a great deal of natural talent and athletic ability, along with quiet intelligence and a wonderful disposition. These characteristics, combined with his size and shape, might just make him a candidate for an ideal ranch horse sire. His first foals arrived in 2021 and we’re certain they will not disappoint.

Rio’s bottom side bloodlines are equally as strong, with the great Miss N Cash as his maternal grandsire and Bunny’s Starlight (full sister to Paddys Irish Whiskey, Gallo Del Cielo, and Grays Starlight) as his maternal granddam. Rio is exceptionally good-minded, kind, and level-headed. Outside of breeding season, he’s been reliable as a “good-using” saddle horse. He travels out very well with a lot of staying power for big circle days, and handles pressure well. Five panel N/N. Photo by Nicole Poyo.

“Rocco” has what we would call the perfect build. He is 15.1 hands and 1100 lbs. He is athletic, smart and kind, we expect these traits to be passed on to his offspring. He is an NRCHA money earner with limited showing due to recovering from an injury his 4yr old year. His pedigree offers expertise in several disciplines, such as reined cowhorse, reining, and roping. That CD Rocks has earnings of $136,764. CD Lights is the second leading sire by CD Olena with lifetime earnings of $234,000. Rocco’s dam is also a money earner in the non pro and still showing. We have used him in the branding pen and doing miscellaneous ranch work. He is good minded and loves to go to work. Everyone in the family rides him. We look forward to his future in the arena and as a producer. Breedings available. (775) 304-8515. & Leah Mori Paradise VaLLey, NV this rooster rocks (rs)

This cow horse mare is quick and athletic. She has a big resume: ranch horse, brood mare, some heeling as well as patterned and used for junior high barrels and poles. Gentle, but not lazy. Easy to be around - a little hard to catch in a big pen, but no vices. Family horse or a good horse to learn on. For more information, call Ty at (775) 397-2132.

In today’s world of highly specialized, event-specific equine breeding, one might encounter the somewhat de rogatory phrase “just a ranch horse” when in reality, that ranch horse occupies a unique niche of usability and versatility that is sorely lacking in most other disciplines. Modern-day ranch horses are quite often the epitome of the all-around, multipur pose “jack of all trades” mounts that helped build the West— and the foundation of quarter horse breed itself. Before stock trucks or horse trailers, ranch horses were born of necessity on the grasslands and mesquite thickets of Texas, the deserts and breaks of Arizona and New Mexico, and the sagebrush sea of the northern Great Basin. The ideal ranch horse had to be able to withstand a twenty mile gather at dawn, only to meet at the rodear grounds where he was used to sort, brand, mother up, and possibly move on to the next pasture and then finally - carry his rider back to camp. These horses saw lots of miles and wet saddle blankets by the end of the day. Working cowboys would take some of the same ranch cavvy horses to town to compete in rodeo events; there was no such thing as a rope or cutting horse used strictly for compe tition. Needless to say, these horses had to be physically and mentallyWhiletough.modern day ranching might not always demand the rigors of yesteryear, the unmatched qualities of working ranch horses are still essential on the ranch and beyond. The rise of the ranch versatility event is testament to that fact.

A Horse Matters By Baxter Black

The essence of true ranch horses is a combination of nature and nurture, from their carefully curated bloodlines to the manner in which they are raised. Their qualities start develop ing when they are foaled and raised outside, in a herd, as horses have been for centuries. It’s the kind of outside that’s not just a pen out back of the barn. It’s the kind of outside that is big country—steep hills, thick brush, rocks, badger holes, running water, thunder storms, wildlife, miles of barbed wire—the kind that brings forth the most elemental, important instincts and abilities in a young horse. As foals, they learn to take care of themselves while being part of a group and following the leader—qualities that can’t

I like living someplace where a horse matters.There is just some country where horseback is the only way to get the job done. Places where the four-wheeler is a poor second, not to mention a noisy, track-leaving unnatural conveyance. Besides, it’s hard to throw a rope from.Helicopters can spot and scare, if that’s what you need, but it’s helpless when you have to doctor a calf. It is a great feeling to be pushing a cow out of a mesquite thicket, packing a dude down the Grand Canyon or tracking a mountain lion on a high ridge, knowing you’re on the perfect tool for the job. You look at a horse different when he’s on the payroll. I like being a person to whom a horse matters.Itputs me in such good company, Robert E. Lee, Teddy Roosevelt, Rudyard Kipling, Ray Hunt, Queen Elizabeth, Jerry Diaz, Casey Tibbs, cowboys, Mongols, Gauchos, teamsters, Lipazzaners and vaqueros of all kinds. Granted being a horse person doesn’t make me easier to get along with, better at spelling or richer. It simply gives me a direct connection to one of the most ancient, mutually beneficial interspecies relationships on the planet.

Winston Churchill said, “There is something

Just A Ranch

anch Horse

I like being there when a horse matters. When you can’t do the job alone; a cow in the bog, a race against time, a boulder to move, a detour to take, a mountain to cross, a crevice to leap, a war to win, a sweetheart to impress, or...when you’ve gone too far to walk back.

I’ve also come to believe that you either are a horse person or you aren’t. Many who are, never know it because they never have the chance. It’s a primitive acceptance, often mutual.

A ranch horse can serve many roles throughout his life and be called many things—good using horse, all-around horse, circle horse, rock-pounder, kids’ horse, grandma’s horse, cow boy horse, to name a few—but never is he “just a ranch horse.”

Shakespeare’s King Richard III said when fate hung in the balance, “A horse! A horse! My kingdom for a horse!”

be duplicated in small pastures with small numbers. As adults these horses naturally will take care of themselves as well as theirJustrider.asranch foals’ minds develop with a wide variety of stimuli, so do their bodies. From the time they’re born, they have myriad opportunities to use all gaits in varying types of terrain and conditions. All of the natural, daily exercise in creases blood flow and strengthens muscles and bones, produc ing an inherent fitness that makes ranch horses more likely to stay sound throughout their lifetimes. When it comes to training, ranch horses are usually in a better frame of mind and generally more likely to learn their jobs without resentment. They have grown up around livestock and understand cattle from the start, which leads to greater confidence and enjoyment in their job. When you watch a crew heading out in the early morning, you can see it’s fun for the horses too—their ears work happily back and forth as they take in their surroundings and trot into the day. They learn to associate satisfaction with a day’s work—which can have a much different outcome for horses that exist only within the enclosed barriers of a barn and arena. While having young performance horse “burn outs” is unfortunately the norm, very rarely will you hear of a “burned-out” ranch horse. A ranch horse is more than a uniquely capable and willing partner, however. He is a functional, beautiful celebration of the ancient working relationship between man and beast. Very few things today are as relevant and necessary as they were 100 years ago. An exception to this rule is the modern ranch horse. As the legendary cowboy poet Baxter Black wrote in his final column, “I like being there when a horse matters. When you can’t do the job alone; a cow in the bog, a race against time, a boulder to move, a detour to take, a mountain to cross, a crevice to leap, a war to win, a sweetheart to impress, or... when you’ve gone too far to walk back.”

I like living a life where a horse matters.

A lack of fear. You see it in some children when they are first introduced to the horse. It always gives me a sense of wonder to be there and help them make their acquaintance. I believe the horse can sense the child’s innate trust. It is the beginning of a natural bond.

Baxter Black (1945-2022) is a cowboy poet, former large animal veterinarian and entertainer of the agricultural masses. Learn more at (

about the outside of a horse, that is good for the inside of a man.”

I count myself very lucky that I get to be a part of the wonderful world of horse sweat, soft noses, close calls and twilight on the trail.
