I can recommend two veterinary services with the ability to collect and ship. All arrangements are made by the mare owner who contracts directly with the Vet.

This is the long-awaited linebred cross of Dick Nelsen's Primavera lines of Gay Vaquero and Valdez with Ab Cross' H-Ken. H-Ken was all cow horse, born in Dubois, Wyoming, on the Cross Ranch. As a weanling he was sold to Reed Allen of Wyoming as payment for an old war debt. After 14 years there, he went to Colorado Springs with the Bruhn family, then to North Hero, VT, at age 20. Polly Smith bred her Gay Enchantress (a Gay Vaquero daughter) to Ken, and LBF Gay Enchantment (aka Mandy) was the offspring. Primavera Brio on Mandy has given us Vaquero. There are very few horses now with this much of Dick and Phyllis Nelsen's Primavera lines.

Vaquero was five years old August 2008. He was started by John and kept in training as a reiner with Mark Wilcher for 18 months. He won the five year old snaffle bit/hackamore class at the 2008 Grand National and placed in two other classes. John is trying to build an old time "royal cow pony" that can rein, rope, and cut so that he can team pen and team rope all on a foundation bred Morgan who happens to also be an eyeful of horse. John describes Vaquero as steady, biddable, soft but an "energizer bunny" when it comes to endurance, bottom, heart and try. John says he is cat quick which is no surprise given how coupled he is in structure.

Vaquero is 100% Foundation Morgan breeding.

Below you will find a list of the 32 horses on the right side of Vaquero's five generation pedigree, and the number of generations they trace to Justin Morgan (JM) and principle sires the line passes through. You will find remarkably that 21 out of 32 of these sirelines pass through the US Government foundation stallion General Gates. Also, listed for each of these 32 horses are the generations for the tail female (tf) line.
