Hankerelse, aka Ranger, is a gentleman and a joy to be around. He loves to turn a barrel. He is dead quiet until you ask him to run, and then he will fire hard and mean business. He is not stud lazy, just a quiet willing mind. We run him in a Bozo side-pull and he is very light. We do not exhibition his as he is very responsible to find his barrels. He is very balanced and level and has exceptionally strong feet and bones. His feet are hard and grow down without flaring or chipping. He has a wonderful natural cup and depth to his soles which holds the ground. We run him barefoot. He is 5 panel Negative. His first foals were born Spring of 2021. Many references from the West Texas barrel racing community are readily available to tell you about the temperament of this beautiful stallion.
