Rock Rose Ranches is located in Caldwell, Idaho . We are in the foothills of the beautiful Treasure Valley just 15 minutes from the Idaho Horse Park.
Our broodmares have strong pedigrees, willing minds and exceptional temperaments and NRCHA and NCHA earnings. These qualities are the inspiration behind this breeding venture. It is our hope that this website gives you a look into how much these mares can contribute when bred to top stallions. 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 meet the mare power.
Magic Sandy and Jessicat are at the center of our program. Their 2022 foals are both fillies out of Once In a Blue Boon. Last year we added a new broodmare. Snorty Little Pep is a handsome buckskin with NRCHA earnings. She was bred to Metallic Rebel. Her gorgeous colt was foaled out under the care of Oswald Cutting in Wilton, California.
Our 2019 colts are competing in NRCHA futurity events. This year Chip Off The Boss, Jessicat X CD Lights in the non pro classes while Show Biz Skoot, Magic Sandy x Smooth Talking Style, will be competing in the limited open.
One Time Lola has become our newest broodmare. She looked extremely promising when she was started but a pasture injury could not sustain training. Lola has the build of her sire and Sandy’s personality. We can hardly wait until we can breed her. Call Me Layla was sold to a show home in California and is in training for 2023 cow horse futurity. The new owners love her and send glowing reports!
LeeRoy and I give our young horses a lot of exposure to life outside the pasture. The fenced trails throughout Maggard Equestrian Estates provide countless opportunities to learn about the world at large. On these trails the young horses encounter a myriad of barnyard animals, cattle, farm equipment, pump house noises, cats, and dogs. Our long yearlings leave here with a big dose of confidence and curiosity.
We are so very thankful for these broodmares and the time shared with their babies. They constantly brighten our lives and keep us grounded.
Rock Rose Ranches might not have the quantity found at other breeding farms, but our small herd most definitely has superior quality and outstanding mare power.
Diane and LeeRoy
