Bad Warrior stallions

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 and contribute greatly (all his babies to SC and QH mares would be heterozygous curlies) 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
owner: Cody Killingsworth

pedigree not figured yet:
Berndt 25% + 12.5% = 37.5%
QH 25% + 12.5% = 37.5%,
Owyhee (3.125% x 7) = 21.875%,
Arab 3.125%
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 overly stock type, but she was wonderful. I don't know if we ever knew where she came from, bloodline-wise? Anyone else know? Nothing I recognized. I forget who her breeder was. This stud's sire was Wendy R'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 truly 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.
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 coltJane's big growthy extreme colt Vinita, Oklahoma. Available to preservation breeders. [presumed homozygous KRT25/KRT25]. Jane and I have researched and put back together this colt's pedigree. It was lost when his breeder, Glady, in Oklahoma came down with alzheimers, and the family dispersed the herd. She had a palomino Damele bred stud, and got a bunch of Warrior mares from me. This colt (I believe) is a 3/4 Warrior, 1/4 Damele bred colt. And he might just make a horse.

WYO Warrior Son Spirit 2018 grey son out of one of 6 almost identical close to full-sister curly Waggoner mares that Ernie and I bred (waiting on photos from John). Can't wait for news on this boy. Old original Hammrich bred Bad Warrior lineage all the way. Stay tuned... We have future genetics sharing plans in the making.

Bad Warrior mares

Warrior WYO Starr

Wyoming Star Dust ABC-693-3/4. [assumed homozygous KRT25] 2007 extreme grey mare. Killingsworth Ranch, Oklahoma. Has run with the nice roan AQHA stud all 2020, hoping for 2021 foal. Bred by Ernie and raised & trained by Jeff & Gail Parker, WY.
• 31.25% Berndt curly
• 31.25% QH
• 25.00% Colorado Ranger
• 11.72% Owyhee wild curly
• 00.78% Crabbet Arabian (Nevada Red)

Fox Fly
[assumed homozygous KRT25] Bad Warrior X Seekers Foxtail
Warrior Fox Fly 2001
Amy Wall says:
"Hi Donna, My friend Amanda Andrews owns this extreme mare out of Seekers Foxtail by Bad Warrior. She is Warrior Seeker Fox ICHO 932-D 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 fanciest extreme I had bred.
Warrior ArchAngelica
Warrior Archangelica (bred by CCCH, first called Warrior Latte) copper dun mare DOB: 06/1/1999. [assumed homozygous KRT25] Bad Warrior X Warriors Mayme Maybe (daughter of Seekers Warrior). Owned by informal Bad Warrior preservation syndicate comprised of Killingsworth Ranch (possession), Mountain View Ranch and Crow Country Curly Horses. This is a full sister to the late Warrior Minne Xpresso. This mare and Minne, had some hoof issues, that originated from birth, after a few years of unusually poor pasture on Standing Rock Res. There are solid reasons for this theory, and neither of these mares ever produced a foal with a single foot / hoof issue. Killingsworth Ranch has this mare running this spring /summer with a very nice roan AQHA stud; we are hoping she began to cycle again at her old age, for the preservation effort.
Lynx Warrior Wind

Wrangler Roping winnerLynx Warrior Wind ABC/ICHO 1999 sorrel mare. [assumed heterozygous KRT25]
1/8 Berndt, 5/8 stockhorse. Owned by Donna Grace; being cared for by Tracy Robinson, Charlo Montana.

• 12.5000% Berndt
• 10.9375% Owyhee (wild curlies in Great Basin; most were KRT25)
• 01.5625% Crabbet Arabian (Nevada Red)

This mare is planning to go to the Crow Reservation, to Joshua Felicity, Wyola, Montana, where if she is not too old, she can be run with a nice big blue roan roping stud next spring. Joshua is the guy who won a pickup truck team roping on her SC full brother.

Reddy Maid
Warrior Lotta Spotsa Red (Spotify, Reddy Maid) [assumed heterozygous KRT25] sorrel tobiano owned by Donnetta Bursch, Joliet Montana.
• 25% Berndt
• 25% Quarter Horse (mostly foundation)
• 50% APHA Paint Horse (running bred)

An old ranch friend bred this mare. She had running blood APHA mares and ran them on our ranch on the Crow Rez. This mare's sire was Warrior King, possibly one of the handsomest Warrior studs ever, who went and retired at Curly Coat Junction in MI til he died. 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. Joshua is the guy who won a pickup truck on an SC full brother to Warrior Wind.

Sheryl's curly appy


Formerly owned & sold by Sheryl D'Uva. Not Warrior bred--a curloosa mare, not sure where she ended up... Not sure of her pedigree but she is likely heterozygous [KRT25/N] (she has an appie rattail but she is not a homozygous extreme) She is a gorgeous dun LP, and even more impressive, she is a BIG girl. She might be a daughter of Shelley's sporthorse in BC?

Warriors Alchimia
Warriors Alchimia (AKA Warrior Minnie Me; assumed homozygous KRT25) ICHO-949D; DOB 06/15/2005, (ICHO typo has her as Warrors Alchimia --they missed the i). This mare reminds me a lot of old CCG Warrior Curly Sue (Warrior Billy Jack's dam), in color, size, temperament & conformation. We are looking forward to what this mare will produce.

Seekers Rush R Sayela by Rush River Slash x out of Seekers Foxtail, last owned by Annie Waldow, a Wing N a Prayer, MT

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 allbreedpedigree. Since we are working up an online 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 should include him here (so you should use allbreed). Owners of exceptional geldings should also get a good hair sample, for possible preservation genetics later on. You never know.


Warrior Seek Jake 2018 dun curly gelding. 15 hh; available in Agra, Oklahoma. By Warrior Seek Justice out of a grade Cee Bee Command bred Quarter Horse mare, sired by Leo Rio Prescription AQHA-4125127. He was a scrawny yearling in this photo, but with his heritage, he should body out into a nice stout gelding. Contact


Warrior Custer Dun is a stout 13YO red dun curly gelding with big heart. He is equally comfortable on trails and in the arena. He has been in our riding program and always takes great care of his riders. For more information please contact Golden Curls Ranch, Texas,

"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
