Heritage Hancocks, registered American Quarter
Horses. Beautiful line bred Joe Hancock quarter horses with
an emphasis on his grandson Blue Valentine. Cowy horses, that
are smooth moving across the pasture, and quick on their feet
in the arena.
Blue Valentines have a long history of being topnotch working
ranch and competitive rope horses, as well as enjoying success
in barrel racing and working cowhorse, and have won literally
hundreds of thousands of dollars (more likely a million dollars
or better) at amateur and PRCA rodeos, jackpots, and in USTRC
competition. More than one good Blue Valentine has been used
as a rodeo pickup horse: A demanding job that requires a courageous
constitution, and the ability to turn on to get a bronc rider
out of a bad way, and turn off;, to stand quietly while waiting
for the next rodeo competitor.
Blue Valentine bred horses have been finding their way into
AQHA, FQHR and NRHA arenas as more people discover their trainability
and sensible, affectionate temperaments, old fashioned quarter
horse type with a modern competitive edge. Our horses are
superbly suited for ranch horse versatility and ranch roping
(Vaquero/Buckaroo style) competitions and clinics that are
becoming so popular. These are quarter horses bred to have
a good work ethic.
Our horses trace to Joe Hancock through get such as Red Man,
Texas Blue Bonnet, Roan Hancock, Buck Hancock, Julie W, Seminole
Sue, Little Joe The Wrangler and Joan.
