Spader Ranch Horse Annual Production Sale & Ranch Horse Contest
August 27th, 2016 - Kansas City, KS
DP Resortfigure-2010 Dun Roan AQHA Mare-2015 AQHA World Show Qualifier, ROM in Tie Down Roping, with 9 points already towards qualifying for the 2016 World Show.
Sired by Popular Resortfigure, a million dollar PRCA sire who had three progeny at last year's NFR, including Trevor Brazile's "Deputy", Monty Lewis's "Squirrel" and "Sweet As Time" ridden by Marcos Costa to become the 2015 PRCA Calf Horse of the Year and AQHA World Show Open Sr Tie Down Champion. This rare and valuable bloodline is made even more rare since Popular Resortfigure was exported to Brazil 4 years ago, and no semen can be shipped to the U.S.
Her dam is SF Belle Dakota Blue, a Blue Max Hancock daughter out of our standby McKeag Dakota Belle mare. SF Belle Dakota Blue is also the dam of "Popular Valentine"-who produced our exciting new young sire "Cielo Roan" This maternal family is one of our favorites, producing several sale toppers and being well-known for their kind dispositions, trainability and style.
Thank you so much to all the great folks that made our 2015 sale a success! We sold horses into 7 states, the colts averaged $1450 and the riders averaged $4050. Many foals sold to repeat buyers that have had great success with previous purchases, a very rewarding aspect for us.
Gerald Stricker won the Open and Overall championship at the K C Ranch Horse Contest, this gelding also sold as lot 25 for $5000 to a buyer in Florida.
Thanks to these great sponsors!

Black N Gold Hancock, by Blue Max Hancock
We purchased this gelding 2 years ago from the Spader Ranch sale. The Spader Family was extremely honest and helpful as we purchased him sight unseen! He has been such a terrific all around horse for us and he has a great disposition. We have used him to assist in training colts, pony horses at the track and as a guest horse when needed! Primarily he is my husband's horse, until we got him him my husband was recluctant to ride very much but now he rides regularly.

"I've owned a number of horses in my day, but none as gentle as the colt we bought from you in last year's sale."

"The horse we got from you, "Drifter", is working awesome! I've been sorting pairs on him all week-he's quick and riding great. He's been at the heeling trainer, and he says he will be a great one! Thanks again for such a great gelding."
