Watrous Valley Horses
Watrous Valley Ranch breeds and trains working ranch and performance horse prospects and competitors. Our bloodlines include cutters, reiners, working cowhorses and ranch horse winners. We breed for color, strength, quickness, and above all, a good mind and disposition in our horses.
Barret Yates, our resident trainer, manages the horse program and is well qualified at caring for, training and showing our performance horses and our general ranch remuda. We pride ourselves on horses that look good, are cooperative and gentle regardless of the task they perform.
Watrous Valley Ranch owns, shows, and breeds Blue Savanah Holli (Buddy), our 2002 award winning homozygous black stallion by multi-million dollar producer Mecom Blue. Most of our mares are bred to “Buddy” and because he is homozygous, will produce only black or black point foals - never a sorrel or chestnut. "Buddy" also passes on his excellent mind and disposition for which he is known.
