Welcome to Grazing Bit Performance Horses. We are pleased to be able to offer a nice selection of prospects suitable for barrel racing, roping and the race track. We purchase mares that have proven pedigrees, great conformation and wonderful dispositions and expect them to produce the same. Most are own daughters of Champions featuring the bloodlines of A Classic Dash, First Down Dash, Special Effort, Toltac, Coronas Leaving You, Stoli, Ivory James, Special Leader, Corona Cartel, First Wrangler, The Signature, Royal Quick Flash and many more.
We looked over hundreds of stallions and stallion prospects before selecting VF Burrs Eye to head our breeding program. Vegas had a disposition that was second to none. He was well balanced and had the heavy bone structure to breed soundness into his offspring. His foals are eligible for the VGBRA & 5-State Breeders Barrel Futurities as well as the Kansas Jackpot Racing Futurity. For more information on VF Burrs Eye please see his own page.
We raise our horses out in big pastures where they learn to travel and grow as nature intended. They are brought in at weaning to halter break and then are worked with during the winter. In the spring, the colts are castrated and everything is turned out to pasture to be a horse until they are ready to be started under saddle. We usually start them as 2 yr olds in the fall so they are ready to calve on as 3 yr olds come spring.
Horses we've raised and or sold have gone on to be excellent rope and ranch horses as well as barrel racing winners.
