"Barbone" is a cowboys horse. We work cattle on him in the morning, breed mares after noon, and off to a roping for the evening. "He's a Natural", says Jeff Bourquin, who is our trainer. "Barbone's" sire, " Heart A Tack", was the ranch sire for the Big Bull Ranch at Canadian, Texas. Ole Tack was a well kept secret and has less than 20 registered get, with two of those having over 300 APHA  performance points. On the top side, is "Garver's Two" and "Hy Diamond " bloodlines. The bottom side of the sire ,"Hart A Tack", goes back to "Hank H" and "King" on top, and  "Midnight" ( this is word of mouth) on the bottom side. "Barbone's" dam, "La Scooters Belle", on the top side, is a grand-daughter of "Otoe" (by Sugar Bars) who was an AQHA  Champion and producer of champions. The bottom side of the dam goes back to "Peppy" and the King Ranch. "Barbone" is a beautiful horse to look at, but that is the outside, what really makes him majestic,  is his disposition. He is quiet and reserved when he is supposed to be, and a stud when he is in breeding mode. Jeff Bourquin's second grade daughter rides barrels on him in the summer. "Otoes Heartatack" ( Barbone) is a  Cow Horse  with foundation blood lines and he is passing these great traits along to his get.
