Price Ranch: Well-broke horses leads to marketing success

Photo by Jan Swan WoodThis foal's question mark marking seems to ask the question "What's the future of the horse business?" For this youngster, the future holds a career as a saddle horse on the Price Ranch.

The big chestnut gelding rides off nicely when Dennis Price steps on. The Buffalo, SD, arena is slick after extensive rains, but the pair is used to that, after a spring spent in deep mud. In town to be the pickup man on some green broncs, it’s just another day at work for the gelding and Price.

Later, while walking through knee-deep grass to look at broodmares, pride in the horses is evident as Dennis tells about each mare and her family. The mares are all very similar in type: deep through the heart, good withers, nice heads, big hips and straight legs with plenty of bone. Mostly bays, browns and sorrels, it is evident that type outweighs color selecting for the Price broodmare band.

Coming across the pasture with the mares is the stud Have Some Cat or “Cougar,” as he’s called at the Price Ranch. He makes his way to Dennis and stands to get petted and rubbed on. In his everyday clothes, he’s still an impressive individual. A son of the renowned High Brow Cat and out of a daughter of Miss N Cash, he excelled in the cutting pen before moving to South Dakota to become a ranch horse and sire.

With a short piece of rope around his neck, Dennis swings on Cougar bareback and rides him around. Disposition like that is what Dennis looked for when he bought the horse.
