At the 2016 IBHA Convention, Vegas was awarded several Honor Rolls as well as being presented with his ROM (Register of Merit) in Dun Factor - the very first IBHA ROM awarded to a Miniature horse. We are very proud of him!

At the Great Lakes Buckskin Association (GLBA) 2015 awards banquet, Vegas was awarded the first ever annual Barbara E. Beckel Memorial Award for Supreme Champion Miniature Horse for 2015! This award is based on points earned during the 2015 GLBA / IBHA show season. We can't thank Bob Beckel enough his training, fitting, love, and dedication to Vegas! 

Spunky s a 31.5” dark brown mare, AMHA / AMHR registered, born in 1991 at Buck On Ranch, Clearwater, MN. She is the dam of Buck On Ranch's multiple National Champion mare, Buck On's Dangerous Curves.


Spunky was retired until in spring 2014, when a 5 year old Mini Whinnies Clover Bud member needed a quiet, easy going show horse for the year, so Spunky took up her second career in 4-H and she loved it!  She's back to retirement as of 2015, but you never know... !

Retirement is Good!

Our plans for Vegas in 2019, now that he is retired from breeding, is to geld him. Vegas will travel with Bob Beckel (part owner and Vegas' biggest fan) to Florida in the winter months and back up to Michigan in the summer months.
