Bad Warrior stallions

FOR SALE: Warrior Seek Justice ABC-3675, 2007 14.2hh grullo curly stallion... Warrior Coyote Crow Horse X Seek Grace Warrior; owned by Killingsworth Ranch, Agra, Oklahoma. Being that Justice is an extreme curly (presumed KRT25/KRT25), and a nice quality all Hammrich bred stallion, he could be bred to any mares (he is "all Bad Warrior," and all his babies to SC or QH mares would be heterozygous curlies) and contribute greatly to the preservation effort. This stallion is available to a Bad Warrior Preservation Program. Ask about him, or about frozen semen.
breeder: Barbara Carroll, Texas, from Ernie Hammrich and Crow Country Curly horses.
owner: Cody Killingsworth
DCC Sioux WarriorDCC Sioux Warrior ABCR-2451; ICHO-432D, 1998 grullo + grey curly stallion, owned by: Annise Finch, Deer Creek Farms, Troy (central) TX. Shipped semen may be available @ I remember lusting after this horse's dam, she was a gorgeous grulla mare. She was not obviously stock type, but she was a beautiful mare. I forget where she came from and I don't know if we ever knew her origin, bloodline-wise? Anyone else know?This stud's sire was Wendy Robinson's big rugged 16hh grey stud, that Ernie had bred, a product of one year when Ernie infused a dab of draft (homesteader type) blood in the mix, to get added power and bone. This horse should be useful in infusing outside blood, and still carrying the Warrior line forward.
Warrior Mead Berndt LakotaWarrior Mead Berndt Lakota, owned by Angie Gaines, Golden Curls Ranch, Texas. With rugged bone and straight legs on four corners, Lakota exhibits a bright flaxen sorrel color like many of the old Berndt horses. I have honestly never seen a straight side-conformation photo of this boy, so mare owners might possibly need to see more of him to use him on the right mares for preservation type efforts.
Warrior Lynx ("Lazy")CCCH Warrior Lynx 1998, 14.3 dun stallion owned by Louise Parker, Llangollen, Wales, UK. Photo by ©Sorrel, Germany. This gorgeous hunk stallion had the temperament everyone thinks of, once they have owned a Warrior horse. These horses make their owners look good. And the better trainer the owner is, the better they get. Louise has bred ole "Lazy" to a number of good mares, and has a nice little herd of curly stockhorses. Lazy is a GBED carrier, so is only bred to negative mares. He is an amazing horse and has made a name for himself on both sides of the ocean.

Jane's coltFOR SALE: Jane's big growthy extreme colt Vinita, Oklahoma [presumed homozygous KRT25/KRT25]. Available to preservation breeders. Jane and I have researched and put back together this colt's probable pedigree. This colt (I believe) is a 3/4 Warrior, 1/4 Damele bred colt. And he might just make a horse.

Bad Warrior X Seekers Foxtail
Warrior Fox Fly 2001
[assumed homozygous KRT25]
Amy Wall says:
"Hi Donna, My friend Amanda Andrews owns this extreme mare, foaled in 2001. Is there still an effort to preserve these warrior lines? She does not want to sell the mare but might be willing to let me get a foal off her. I do not have a stock type curly stallion myself, my stud is out of gaited lines. We are located in Peshtigo, Wisconsin."

I sold this filly to a guy in Michigan in (I believe) 2001. I called her Warrior Fox Fly. I thot she was the prettiest extreme foal I had ever bred.

It is being discussed now, about this mare going to the Crow Reservation, to Joshua Felicity, where if she is not too old, she can be run with a nice big blue roan stud next spring.

CNC Shes Lioras Spot On ICHO-1359D, dun Lp blanket curly mare.

Bad Warrior geldings go to top

After some discussion, it was suggested that owners of geldings may wish to hold off entering their pedigrees on, because we are working on a curly horse database to replace now with Tennessee State University. Geldings could wait to be entered there to prevent duplicate work. (We may need some beta test subjects there anyway right?). But If your gelding is for sale, we could include him here--so you should use allbreed--to help get him sold. Owners of exceptional geldings should gather a good hair sample, for possible preservation genetics later on.

"George is the biggest curly I've seen; last I measured him he was 15.3 and he's super thick as well. His birthdate was 5/29/2006. He was out of Angelica, and sired by a big strong Morgan stud. He doesn't have any of the feet issues that his mother Angelica has. He is fine to ride he just needs someone to consistently work with him." ~ Sara Woods, Utah.
