Well if anyone's looking for a nice no-buckeroo-blood stallion, we're offering Viking for stud. He's got a super disposition, easy to work with, and stays pretty darn clean. These pictures were when we first bought him, and I need to get some new ones made now that he's clipped and conditioned... I'm pretty sure he's homozygous black - we're going to get him tested but I know he's NEVER sired a sorrel colt in his four years as a breeding stallion.

Which now I should state, these are of him in pasture condition. AMHA registered, 31.5"



He's only being bred to approved mares. Willing to give a discount to proven mares and show homes. We also may hardship him into AMHR soon.

He is nice :)....there are a lot of nice horses/stallions out there they don't have to have buckaroo in the pedigree for them to be nice. I have 3 stallions(no buckaroo) and they are either champions themselves or at least produced a top ten( he has only had 5 foals so I'm sure it will only get better). Btw I love your guy's color

Thanks andb - it was pure luck finding him.

I think the problem with Buckaroo, is that he was pretty 'rare' back in his time - he stepped away from the really pony-ish look... and naturally, his get did well in the ring because of this, and it created a bunch of hype and EVERYONE wanted a BLB horse. I'm really not that fond of them anymore. There are a few of his offspring/greatoffspring,etc. That I'd have snatched up, but they are few and far between anymore.

I agree....I've talked to people (not going to name names)that are really well- known in the miniature horse industry. They say that they wouldn't have a buckaroo because he is everywhere. I do think that when he was showing in the 80s that he was one of the more refined minis out there. I really don't think that he is a really that great of a producer when you look at how many foals he has had. If I had 400 kids I would hope that ten or fifteen would make something of themselves. If you look at a horse like Roan Ranger who had 69 foals I think 5(that I know of maybe there are more) of them where champions. To me he was a better producer of champions than Buckaroo is. Just saying lol

Well I have a grandson of BLB. His sire is Psyched Up Buck. This colt is the most cowhocked thing I've ever seen. If you look closely in the smartly-angled shot of PUB, you'll see he looks a bit cowhocked too, and all of his get that I've seen are showing the same characteristics... Now answer me this... Psyched is a World Champion... How does a cow hocked horse get a world championship?

We now have three no-BLB lined horses. The new filly, her momma and the stallion above. Hoping to keep that motion going.

Oh and aandb - I want your gray stud. LOL I've been wanting a gray mini so bad!

Lol I have no idea how he is world champion. I have been told that a lot of it is politics.
Btw, it's not that I don't think BLB is a bad horse I just think that there are a lot of other horses out there that are as good if not better. I also think he doesn't reproduce himself well considering the number of offspring he has had. There are a lot of other horses out there that I think produce great horses but just don't have as many foals as he does so of course they don't have as many champion offspring.
Thanks, that's my old man, I think I might put the other 2 in training next year so he will be the only man around here....I'm sure he will appreciate that lol.
