The Atwood Ranch stallions have legendary pedigrees. All are sons of such Quarter Horse greats as Doc Bar, Peppy San Badger, Doc O’Lena, Colonel Freckles and Dual Pep. And all have not only proven themselves in the show pen but in the breeding shed, as well. But just as important as their show and produce records are their minds and temperaments. Calm, confident, willing, and trusting.

COLONEL DOC BAR CHEX (Colonel Freckles x Shirley’s Doc Bar) was breeding our mares right up until his passing earlier this year at the age of 31.  We will continue to breed our own mares via frozen semen to continue his legacy. An Atwood-bred stallion, he was an NCHA, NRHA, NRCHA and ACHA money earner, as well as an AQHA point earner. His accomplishments included the 2000 World’s Greatest Horseman Reserve Championship.

The 1995 stallion, ONE SMART PEPPY, has also been on the Atwood roster and we continue to use his frozen semen on our mares. He is the only own son of Peppy San Badger out of One Time Soon, whose foals have earned over $753,000. He is a three-fourths brother to One Time Pepto and Peptotime as well as a half-brother to Faith N Risk.

MR SKYLINE PEPPY (Peppy San Badger x SR Docs Serenade), although deceased, produced his last offspring in 2016. With LTE of nearly $250,000, a 2nd dam who was the NCHA Futurity Reserve Champion, and offspring following in his footsteps, we are excited about the mark he has left on our bloodlines.

A full brother to Smart Little Lena, ILL BE SMART (Doc O’Lena x Smart Peppy) continues to have an impact on our breeding.  With earnings of $77,740, his offspring have earned well over $1.3 million and counting in multiple disciplines.  Although under new ownership, we have frozen semen on hand for our ranch mares.

BOOT SCOOTIN DUALLY (Dual Pep x Jae Bar Maisie), BOBBY BO BADGER (Peppy San Badger x Doc’s Bo Peep), ESPECIAL (Doc Bar x War Leo’s Lady) and POWDER RIVER PLAYBOY (Peppy San Badger x Playboys Reward), as well as the thoroughbred RED FIRE (Hennessy x Miss Firefly) have all been members of the Atwood Ranch stallion register over the years, along with some others.  The influence they have had continues today and into the future.

Our Atwood Ranch broodmares are legendary, as well. They are among the finest Quarter Horses and consist of three bands.  Delineation is primarily by breeding, earnings and produce records. Collectively these mares have performance earnings of nearly a million dollars while their offspring have earned well over that million dollar figure.  

These remarkable offspring, weanlings, yearlings and a select group of young riding horses, are available for sale, all with a natural start.
