"Chilly" is our Junior stud, King, Poco Bueno, BlackBurn, and Plaudit bred. A royally bred colt...a gentleman on the ground...already has the moves to be a cutter or a reiner! Our thanks to Cripple Creek Farm, formerly LaPradds Paints and Quarter Horses in Moneta VA for the opportunity to own this outstanding young stallion.
Chilli's puts solid, even tempered babies on the ground. We are keeping his first filly...a gorgeous buckskin, for ourselves. He puts color on his colts..and that sought after foundation conformation and ability.

Royal Score Three 05/10/1988 - 04/21/2008

Regal, gentle, mischevious...and 20 years was not nearly enough. Score was our Senior stallion..bred, born, and spent his life here. His Sire and Grandsire were both here as well. You could not meet him and not fall in love with him...and he passed that on to his foals...we were blessed to have two lovely fillies in the year before he passed and they will stay here to continue his legacy. He was the King of Larkspur Ranch, he knew it and so did every person and horse here. He will be missed more than words can ever say.

Bens Barred

AQHA 1717729
Crossed over the Rainbow Bridge all too soon at age 23, on October 12, 2004 from a sudden attack of colic. Benji will be sadly missed by all of us here at the ranch..he was a true Gentleman and a good boy right up till the end. We are diminished without him. His beauty, grace, sweet temperment, and elegance can never be replaced.

1981 Sorrel Stallion. Three Bars, Barred, and Blackburn breeding. Benji is a total gentleman on the ground and under saddle, produces well built, well behaved and intelligent babies. Truly one of a kind, our senior stallion certainly doesn't show his age. Rides out alone or with groups...amongst our herd of mares and geldings...always a pleasure to be around. Benji's front knees were injured by a shod mare early in his breeding career which left him unable to be shown. His babies are all beautiful and carry his elegance and sweet temperment.

Book Closed.
