This 1997 Bay Roan AQHA stallion was shown extensively by Wayne from 1999 to 2003. He was named numerous times Grand Champion Stallion, High Point Versatility Champion, and carries AQHA points. He was also a money earning rope horse. He produced offspring who are correct, colored, pretty, cowy, trainable and on-the-whole gentle for anyone. We lost Roany unexpectedly in 2010 and he is buried in our yard.
This 2000 Sorrel AQHA stallion is royally bred! His sire, Freckles Playboy, is the 2nd all time leading NCHA sire. His dam was a daughter of the great Doc's Hickory.
Patriot John, or as we know him "Pig", was trained as a cutter. He was unshown at the futurity due to injury. As he went through his four and five year old years, he grew to over 15'3 hands and 1300 pounds. We sold him to our neighbor Paul Williams for a head horse and we've heard that he is no longer alive. We were fortunate to have kept a couple of his daughters.
Nothing about McCutchen Ranch would be the same if it weren't for Old Dominion. His stud fees and colt sales basically paid for the land McCutchen Ranch now sits on. He taught and took care of our daughters when they were small; he furthered Wayne's reputation as a horseman; he provided years of enjoyment for our family and all those who loved him.
He was by Poco Bueno's great son Poco Club and out of a Leo granddaughter. Old Dominion was the epitome of everything we tried to breed - conformation, pedigree, cow, athletic ability, disposition, etc.
We showed him successfully all over the country. He excelled in conformation classes, as well as all cow and performance classes. In the days before AI, mares came to Bronte, Texas, from all over the United States.
Due to severe arthritis and old injuries, we were forced to put him down on March 5, 2005. He is buried in our yard.
