Not Standing to Outside Mares

  • "Rye" is a grullo roan 2004 stallion who is linebred Hancock/Blue Valentine bred, and also goes back to Leo multiple times.

  • Rye is about 14.3 hh, which is much smaller than many Hancock horses. We like 14.3 hh...it's a very versatile height, allowing for more athleticism/quickness than a huge, bulky horse. However, he doesn't reproduce his size very well. Most of his foals are much larger at maturity than he is regardless of the size of the mare.

  • Rye is different than many high-percentage Blue Valentine horses in his height, but also in his beauty! It is rare to find a high-percentage Blue Valentine horse with such a pretty little head!

  • His sire is a roping horse, WYO O Blue, who weighed 1325 pounds at age 7.

  • His dam is a homozygous black daughter of Plenty Try.

  • Rye is not "just" a Blue Valentine-bred horse.  In my opinion, the best Blue Valentine horses are those that were outcrossed with some more modern breeding to add athleticism.  Our former stallion was a great cross of BV and Leo.  Rye has some shots of Rip Rip and Texas Blue Bonnet in him to add to his inclination for athleticism...and for some "pretty!"

  • HERDA: We have not tested Rye for Herda because he doesn't appear to be descended from Poco Bueno.

  • Guarantees: I can't offer any guarantees on Rye's soundness or fertility because I have not ridden him since his kick in 2007. I have not collected him in 2011 to look at his semen to see if the 2010 dental float issue caused damage. For a better description of Rye's dental float problem and other history, click here.

  • This is the type of comments we have heard from Rye's foals' new owners. I haven't kept all the e-mails, but thought I'd share this one because it reflects the other comments we've had about Rye's foals: This colt is probably one, if not "the," SMARTEST colts I have worked with EVER..... I mean I have calm ones, willing, smart but this guy acts like he has had lessons before and knows he just DOES........ he never fights pressure just comes to you and faces you like he knows to face you. First time I asked him to walk forward he walked like a broke dog ! NO BABY DOES THAT ! - he's shy from being out since he was born so like to touch him but he is curious and kind of doesn't care just doesn't know. VERY SMART!
