Located on the former Maggard Quarter Horse Ranch in Caldwell, Idaho, Rock Rose Ranches is less than 40 miles west of Boise. These pastures have raised over a hundred quarter horses! We have been remodeling this property for 2 years, and in 2018 decided it was time to breed. What a great decision that was! In 2019 the veteran broodmare Magic Sandy, and maiden mare Jessicat foaled easily at home giving us Chip and Skoot who are now yearlings. This year we were blessed with two beautiful fillies, Layla and Lola.
Both our broodmares have strong pedigrees, good conformation, willing minds and exceptional temperaments. These qualities are the inspiration behind this breeding venture. It is our hope that this website gives you a sense of what these mares can contribute. With the cost of performance horses these days we feel buying a horse by pedigree alone is not enough. We invite you to visit us and the meet the horses.
We are semi-retired, farm mint, and stay busy on the ranch. Leeroy is a 6th generation Oregonian who managed cattle ranches before founding his logging company. I am a 3rd generation Californian still involved in family agribusiness. Together we have the passion, time, experience, and a safe facility to provide a great start for foals. With Idaho Equine designing our feeding program and handling veterinary maintenance we have the bases covered.
Personally, Leeroy and I have chosen clinics and barn lessons over a focus on showing. This summer Leeroy is showing interest in club cuttings which will be fun. We enjoy the local shows, futurities, and attending Fort Worth. Watching herd work for hours is no bother for us. We love seeing what talented trainers can achieve with this amazing breed!!!!
We plan to continue breeding to top sires but would consider embryo transfer or raising a foal for you. We do not wish to consign to auctions which was another reason for this website. If you have any questions please call Jason Gay, our representative at (801) 791-6485. He knows all about these mares and foals.
Thanks for taking a look!
Diane and LeeRoy
