FEATURED BREEDER; December
Bar Shoe H
Breeding the Using Horses of Tomorrow
Larry and Flo Hix, Colbert
The whole family is involved with the
horses to some degree or another.
We produce a number of foals each year
along with offering several yearling and two year old prospects.
Bar Shoe H Livestock is new in the breeding business
but not the horse business. We breed line bred Hancock and Driftwood/Hancock
cross horses. We provide seed stock and arena prospects each year. Our goal
is to provide top quality individuals with special attention paid to conformation
and disposition. We love the roan color but do not breed for that specifically.
We produce a number of foals each year along with offering several yearling
and two year old prospects. Occasionally we have finished horses to offer
but not often. The whole family is involved with the horses to some degree
or another. Our horses are involved in events from USTRC ropings to local
hunter jumper events.
We believe these horses can do anything you wish them to do and do it with
a big heart and good mind. We chose the Hancock bloodlines for their good
bone, work ethic, exceptional conformation, and willing disposition. We have
been very pleased with our choice in bloodlines.
Our lead herd sire is Gila McCue Hancock who was the former lead sire for
Broken Bones Cattle Company following the untimely death of Hancocks Blue
Boy. We were very fortunate that the Whipps called us first when they decided
to sell this outstanding sire. McCue was started as a young horse but then
used exclusively as a breeding horse. Making sure he hadn't forgotten what
the saddle is about we rode him as recently as last summer, however, because
of his value as a sire and his inexperience as a riding horse he does not
compete. We hope to compete some of his offspring but at this point we have
sold all of those old enough to compete. He has a number of offspring, however,
foaled before our purchase of him competing in all arena events as well as
breeding and proving themselves worthy in all areas.
