The IX Ranch added some color to its historic horse herd this year. These dun-colored registered Quarter horse colts are the result. For 60 years this Montana legacy ranch has raised its own working cow horses. Their 25-head remuda is supported by six foals a year from eight foundation broodmares and the new Plenty Dun, double-bred Hancock stallion. These “weaners” will be trained this winter to lead, load and be trimmed. This spring they’ll be turned out on the ranch for a year before starting training by ranch employees.
