We have welcomed yet another keen cow horse to our battery of Stallions. Smooth Sir, (an own son of Smooth As A Cat), is a young stud we found in Sandy Collier's training barn. Caesar stands 14.3 + HH with just enough Rabicano markings to catch this Paint breeders eye! He's smooth, a big stopper, catty and just dynamite on a cow ~ and possesses a pedigree which would be hard to improve upon. This stallion is all business when you put him on a cow! With his super disposition and ability, we'll be producing some talented performance and ranch horses within our breeding program.
