Cheri originally came from Colorado 38 years ago bringing several horses. One of those horses was Bay Elegance, a daughter of Cheri’s original mare, Miss Keck, the producer of 7 AQHA horses with race and show records including several state champions in both Colorado and Oklahoma and AQHA World Show qualifiers. In 2001 at age 27, Bay Elegance produced her last foal, a gray filly, Gunners Babe, by GUNS OF MARIETTA, a PLAYGUN son. The sire of Bay Elegance was Cheri’s old foundation stallion, AQHA CHAMPION, DOTY’S SOCKS JR. Besides becoming an AQHA Champion in May of his 3-year-old year, He was a superior halter horse, a superior pleasure horse, and had a total of 239 AQHA points in 10 events! (Before circuits and multiple judge shows.) He was an NCHA cutting champion and had an NCHA Certificate of Ability. He sired AQHA champions, APHA Champions, NCHA cutting champions and numerous ROMs, and producers. “He was the kind of ALL AROUND horse the Wolfe Ranch still strives- to produce today!”
Pete had a heart attack in 2000, a brain hemorrhage in 2001 and had quadruple by-pass open heart surgery in September of 2007. Cheri has battled Arthritis and Degenerative Joint Disease for more than 20 years. Since we can no longer ride and handle as many horses ourselves, we are offering many of our broodmares and fillies for sale. We have bred and raised many outstanding young mares and are offering ALL of them at very reasonable prices. We have an apprentice starting all of our prospects the same gentle "no buck' way we always started them, but are unable to 'finish' horses any more, except for our solid, seasoned trail horses. Thanks to you (the public), this web site has been so popular and so successful.
Each year we sell several horses over the phone or internet ‘sight unseen’ to people we have never met. We try to be absolutely up front about every little detail of each horse. Each year, many of the horses we sell like this are to people that we have sold horses to before or they have friends that have bought horses from us. We can furnish many references World Wide and there are probably people near about anyone that are riding horses we sold.
Since we can no longer show competitively ourselves, we are now taking out trail riders on trail rides in the Arbuckle Mountains of southern Oklahoma. We use our ranch geldings, broodmares and many of our home-raised fillies and geldings for our trail riding string. We think that testifies as to the disposition of our brood mares. We have ridden most of our broodmares. If we were still able, we would ride them all. We think everyone should. Check out our ‘Arbuckle Trail Rides' website and ‘Trail horses for sale’ page in this website. www.arbuckletrailrides.com
We have sold many horses to Europe and the UK and recently sold a stallion and several mares to central Mexico. We can arrange quarantine and all shipment details for buyers and deliver horses to the quarantine station and can do all of it on a credit card. Our Driftwood stallion was recently sold to the UK where he had many ‘girlfriends’ waiting for him. He also sold to a repeat buyer there. We have sold all of his sons, but still have a few of his daughters in the mare band and some of them are for sale. Due to our age and declining health, we are offering many mares that we have never offered. Some are 3rd, 4th and 5th generation of our breeding. It breaks our hearts, but our health has failed too much to keep doing this right, so we have to let go of mares we would never price in the past — no matter how many times some people tried to buy them. We would make a really attractive package deal to someone wanting to buy a group of them and keep some of these great producers together.
If you are interested in a proven broodmare or a young mare that is ready to breed, call us. We will send you information on the mares that we have. ALL of them will be priced reasonably. A couple are trail and pleasure breeding and the others are cutting and cowhorse breeding or old ‘Foundation’ ranch breeding. They have made reiners, cutters, ropers, cow horses and great ‘all around’ horses for more than 40 years. Several have made great USTRC roping horses.
