"Elvis" has everything that we are looking for in a sire. Great conformation, strong bone, straight legs, good feet, train-ability, grit, and athleticism. He wants to please and is just a true gentlemen.
Elvis's sire, Frenchmans Guy needs no introduction as one of the leading sires of barrel horses. His dam, Midnight By Lucky, is a full sister to Smoky By Lucky Boy (3x NDHSRA Horse Of The Year, NDHSRA Barrel Racing Champion, twice Reserve Champion, NPRA Qualifier) Smoky is 20 years old and is still running in the 1D against some top horses in ND. Elvis' maternal grandsire, Dollys Lucky Boy has produced several top 1D barrel horses from TX to MT. His maternal granddam, Pokeys Peppy, I was told was a tough barrel horse in TX and was a HS Champion at one time. His pedigree is proven through and through!
With very limited training (due to a breeding injury) and hauling, Elvis is already a barrel money earner, including placing in the only futurity I entered him in. From the very first time I took him anywhere, this guy came into the arena and did business. Every time I entered that gate, I know Elvis is there, wanting to do his job and focus at the task at hand. He was a natural on barrels and has a gritty attitude that I haven't seen in many horses. Not only does he run barrels, but he's earned his keep at the ranch. He's cowy and will not back down from a cow. He's a favorite to use on those all day rides with his rocking horse lope, sorting cows and if you need to rope a calf, you know he's going to catch them. I can't stress enough that if you show this horse a job, he shows up to DO his job. Doesn't matter if he's tired and had a hard days ride, he'll bare down and prove to anyone just how much heart he really has. I've breakawayed a little on him and I have yet to have a horse break to the pin as hard and fast as him in such a short amount of training. He gave me a shot right out of the box every time. He's a versatile horse and wants to please!
His first foal crop was born in 2010 and we could not be happier with what he produced. These colts all have good bone, feet, and balanced conformation. In addition to good looks, they've been gentle since they were born and were a breeze to halter break. We've started a lot of his colts from a wide variety of mares and they all are stamped with Elvis' great mind, trainability and want to please. His first colts to the arena have proven to be performers and the best is yet to come! We constantly get reports from others on these foals with the same sentiments that we have. They make things fun and every day is a joy to ride!
