Welcome! Thank you for attending our 11th Annual Ranch Horse Competition and Sale, and our 21st Quarter Horse Production Sale. We have enjoyed raising Quarter Horses continously for 47 years, and strive to produce versatile, trainable athletes with incredible dispositions and soundness. Our goals are centered around creating a planned breeding program, utilizing performance foundation bloodlines that have been proven to consistently meet our expectations. We take an organized approach and you will see many three-quarter, seven-eighths and full blood siblings in the offering. As we find great crosses and combinations of bloodlines, we then strive to find or create a new sire to compliment this maternal base. This results in multiple generations selected for the same program principles-allowing us to increase the consistency of our foals and ensure they are exactly what our customers need. This “Foundation Forward” approach allows us to create new genetics that still fit the time-tested needs of our customers-ranchers, cowboys, and families. All Spader Ranch foals are also AQHA Ranching Heritage eligible! There’s a great set of riders from our friends included as well-we encourage you to call them, watch them in the contest or try them prior as we understand the importance of finding the right fit for you. Thanks again for attending, we look forward to seeing you at the sale.

Reata Valentine is a dynamic blue roan Blue Valentine performance stallion with a pedigree filled with rodeo credentials. His sire, Vals Blue Charge, is a talented money earner in heeling, and tie-down roping. His paternal great-grandsire, Drews Hancock, is a multiple PRCA & NFR sire with outstanding progeny in heading & heeling. Another great-grandsire, Blue Zan Parr, sired “Honeypot”, a great bay roan heel horse with two trips to the NFR to her credit. His grandsire, Azul Caballo Amigo, sired a PRCA Heel Horse of the Year and a Senior Rodeo Horse of the Year. Not to be outdone, Reata Valentine originates from one of the strongest maternal famllies in our program, which also produced a PRCA Calf Horse of the Year (“Mr Ed”) owned by Doug Clark. All in all, his pedigree is responsible for producing more than a dozen pro-level roping horses who share the same speed, big stop and athleticism that Reata Valentine demonstrates. Reata has done an exemplary job in a short time as a sire-producing colts with a real “look” about them. He’s a perfect combo with Blue Max Hancock daughters to ensure the utmost in disposition, ability and style. Look to Reata Valentine to produce colorful, blue roan athletes that excel in the arena and on the ranch!

A great chance to own a willing, smart, and game youngster! Started on cattle work (1 year of light ranch experience as a 4 year old). Recently in professional training for 3 months, “Lane” would excel on a working ranch. However, recently, the owner has not had enough time, so “Lane” is regrettably offered for sale. He’s also been rode though pasture and cattle pens in a feedlot type setting. Recommended for an intermediate level rider or above, “Lane” enjoys having a consistent job. Don’t miss out on this opportunity! Patricia McEwen (316) 253-8823
2008 Red Roan Gelding
Roby, a gorgeous,easy going, put together, 10 year old red roan ranch gelding that has been used all his life. This is a super nice gelding that I have used to day work cattle , pull calves to the fire with at branding time, and do just about any kind of job on the ranch that requires moving a cow, Roby has also seen a lot of use as a head horse and has alot of rate and will give you a shot every time. While he is not a finished horse he would not take alot of time to make him one, Ronny Graves said that this horse with a little work could have a big future in the roping pen with his speed, rate, and pull. He is a stout 14.3 hands and is a looker to boot, In the pasture or the arena, Roby is a horse that can get the job done. if you have any questions call Mark Birch at 573-822-9318
2006 Buckskin Gelding
Buck is a 12 year old gentle broke ranch gelding that has been used as a head horse all his life, Buck has most recently been used as a practice horse for a 10 year old girl to rope slow cattle and practice on the hot heels, he has a wonderful gentle disposition and is willing to go anywhere he is asked but is patient and wont get excited no matter what kind of situation you put him in, we have used him on the ranch and in the branding pen as well he stays calm and takes care of his rider and would be a great addition to anyones string, for more info call Mark Birch 573-822-9318

I raised this gelding from a baby so this is his first sale. He stands close to 14.2 and is very solid. Beautiful standout red roan is very athletic with bursting speed to burn if you want it, turn him on and off, super calf roping potential!! Light in the mouth and moves well off your feet, open and close gates etc. Has had an easy life so his future is ahead of him. I have a younger horse that needs riding and don’t want to see him wasted in the pasture. Paul Coblentz (816) 560-0386
