For several years, I hauled our broodmares around the Interwest breeding to the many great stallions this area offers. I never felt like I was achieving the look and disposition I was after. It was then I realized I needed to breed my own mares and find the right stallion to get it started.
I searched ranches and production sales in Utah, Nevada, California, Idaho, South Dakota, Nebraska, Wyoming, and Montana. I purchased several weanling colts from some of the most well known producers, looking for color, conformation, pedigree, etc. After much trial and error, and several years, I had one outshine the rest. The decision was an easy one - Macha Roany Music. He fit all the criteria I was working for. He has not disappointed me or the folks who either purchased foals from me or bred one of their own mares to him.
He is one in a million, all the concerns I had about standing a stallion, with all its responsibilities, worries, and hard work were quickly banished. He became a part of our family, a true gentleman, but so full of life and never a dull moment, a character or goof-off is the best way to describe him. He is full of life and personality but always as gentle as a kitten. His foals all have that full of life personality, athletic and balanced, kind hearted, pretty heads, big hips, and color - color - color. Roans in all colors; colors the AQHA have a hard time naming. His foals have competed and won in many areas- cutting, reining, barrels, and haltering. They are being used in High School Rodeos, 4H, adult riding groups, drill teams, roping, and as great family friends for trail riding and baby sitting grand kids. Look over the photos we have of him and a few of his foals. You will want to look over and study the pedigree. A great out cross for all the many families of the Quarter Horse.
We do not breed outside mares.

Easy Music Missile 2008 Buckskin Roan Stallion
I am so excited about this Stallion! I took some chances when I bred for him. I had a hunch we might get his pedigree to "Nick" and boy did it! He needs to be seen in person to appreciate his Balance and Conformation. Now he is in training. I also see his Athletic Ability is amazing. This truly is the complete stallion. His first foals were Halter Quality, short backs, long legs, pretty heads, all colored Buckskin or Grullo Roan, and were the first to sale very early this past Spring. He will be promoted as a Barrel Horse and should be on the Show Circuit by Spring.
Missile is now 6 and hopefully done growing. He is 15.3 and 1400lbs, he is a muscled giant. Very imposing and intimidating, but very gentle. He is a supreme athlete, very fast, loves to go, but with a big stop. His hind quarters are always up under him when he works. Is maybe a little "too Cowy" will catch a steer or calf by the back of the neck and shake them like a rag doll, ears pinned. A breeder from Montana was watching him play on the Hot Walker and claimed "He would kick a Grizzly Bear's Butt" He is doing just what I hoped, breeding a larger framed and muscled horse without losing athletic ability. We only have a few foals sired by him and folks love them. We bred more of our mares to him for 2015 foals.
Color is one in a million. Light colored Dun with all the Dun characteristics very pronounced. And with about a 75% Roan hair pattern is very striking. To say I am excited about his future as Performance/Arena Horse and as a Sire would be a gross understatement.
I raised this colt's Sire to get some high % Blue Valentine fillies to cross on the "Music" Studs and in the process I got this tremendous Stud Colt that was Superior to his Sire because of the out-cross on the best three performance bloodlines of all time, King Fritz (Chex), Peppy San Badger, and Doc Bar. This gave me a little more refinement without losing that big Hancock frame and muscle. It added some "Sting" back into Family.
