foals. They have the good conformation along with the
disposition and athletic ability that we like to see.
Charlie’s sire speaks for himself. His dam is Chick
Bonanza. Her progeny have earned over 270 AQHA
points. One of her foals is an AQHA Champion with
superiors in three events.

Loren was a kid in the dirty 30’s near
Rockville, Nebraska. Horses were a part
of his life from then on. He had to quit
school when he was 13, farming with
draft horses with his brothers. Over the
next 72 years he broke, used and raised
horses. In the 1960’s he would buy 5
horses at a time to start. The kids got
their first 4-H horses that way. Bruce
was the oldest so he got the $75 palomino. Mike was next oldest,
so got the $50 sorrel. Both made it to the State 4-H Horse Show,
when it was still held during the State Fair. Loren was a 4-H
Leader in both Polk and Custer Counties.
He helped start the Goldenrod Saddle Club in Osceola and
competed across the state. Horses were also used with the Angus
herd and when working for several ranches. The ranch jobs were
intermixed within his career as a mechanic. Tiny, Babe, Smoky,
Connie and Barzee were all horses that made his horse experiences
Loren was an inspector for the Model Quarter Horse
Association, (a precursor to the Foundation Quarter
Association), with all horses having to visually qualify. For
nearly 50 years the family has registered AQHA foals. Loren
took great pride in the horses he raised and the success they
went on to have. Watching grandkids
ride home-raised horses was special. He truly loved visiting
with horse people and swapping stories.
Loren never stopped riding and passed away right after giving
the cattle and horses some extra attention before the January 22
blizzard arrived. He was a true cowboy and horseman.
