LETTA HANK DO IT
ROSA RUNNER (RUNNERELSE)
WEATHERFORD EQUINE BREEDING CTR
Many references from the west Texas barrel racing community are readily available to tell you about the temperament of Hankerelse, aka Ranger. He 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. I run him in a Bozo side-pull and he is very light. I do not exhibition him as he is very responsible to find his barrels. He is very balanced and level and has exceptionally strong feet and bone. His feet are hard and grow down without flaring or chipping. He has a wonderful natural cup to his soles which holds the ground. We run him barefoot and my husband shoes. He is 5 Panel Negative. His first foals are due now, spring of 2021.
