time, and they took the blue! Janis purchased Bandit from

in speed events, mountain trail classes, halter classes and
ranch horse classes. Congratulations Team Bandit! We love
hearing from you and seeing your success.
Toyin With A Cat 2015 AQHA Gelding
Pretty, athletic, super smart and a winner! It’s fun
to own this gelding and he’s been my ride to a whole
new world of Ranch Versatility and Cutting competitions. He’s
the star of the 2022 summer having already won high point
novice horse at three Arizona Versatility Ranch Horse Shows
and placed in a couple of NACHA beginner cuttings. He’s
even a steady and safe trail horse on the steep rocky trails
in Arizona. His giant personality makes everything fun!

love our Billings Horse Sale customers! Jeff Strowbridge from
Minnesota purchased this gelding at the BLS July Sale.Jeff
says he's a good horse on both ends roping, double tough outside,
and rides good in town for the ladies and IN THE BAR! That's
not a first for a BLS buyer. Once there was a bulldoggin inside
a bar in Dillion - not naming names. It's good to know the
younger guys are still as crazy as the old ones. Bill Parker
would have got a kick out of this. I hope he's looking down
laughing. Good luck Jeff and Ole Dunn and keep that Montana
tradition going in Minnesota!
"Ya he’s rode like a million bucks we were in medora
riding for 4 days rode to town everyday nothing bothered him
I even rode him on the deck at the bar had 3 guys try to buy
him and 4 women rode him around the town" . OMG!

an update. Tank and Austin won the Oregon High School State SW Championship.
Drew the runner at nationals in the first round and threw him well
for a 9.5. Needed to be a 5.25 on the second one to make the short
go and was a 5.04 and thought he got out but broke. So Tank and
Austin are off to Douglas, AZ on a FULL ride scholarship. What a
blessing Tank has been. The accolades just keep rolling in. I put
several kids on him in high school rodeo and they all did well.
I was hit up several time by guys that wanted to travel and ride
him this year. He does not look that fast because he is so big and
strong is the deal. But he is a proven winner anywhere in the arena
and on any steer.
and Austin have brought me so much pride and happiness already over
you again for the pleasure of working with us.
John, Ronna, and Austin
is a the second go at State and the short go on YouTube.
When Chip was in high school I scraped up the money to buy him a
good horse that we couldn't afford and it was the best investment
I ever made. Chip was able to get college scholarships and that
paid many times over for the price of the horse. I'm so glad that
we were able to sell Tank to you and that he has done so well with
him. Austin is talented and smart and that is the key to his success
but it helps to be mounted. Tell them good luck in AZ. I'm planning
to go to Wickenburg AZ for 2 weeks this winter. I have a new barrel
horse and I'm enjoying the 4-D races and winning a little money.
I'll let you know when I go and maybe I'll see them down there.
