2015 Red Roan Gelding

Wilson Cattle Co., Brooke & Rodey Wilson, Canyon, TX

We are very excited to offer one of our top tier horses at the Rancho Rio Horse Sale, Honkey Tonk! Honkey Tonk is a beautiful red roan gelding. He stands 15 hands, weighs 1,315 lbs., and has a heart the size of Texas. We have owned Honkey Tonk since he was 3 years old, and we have taken no short cuts to make him a great horse. I feel like you will see that in his video. If you have seen a Wilson Cattle trailer at the ropings there is a pretty good chance Honkey Tonk was one of the horses loaded. He is a finished and very seasoned head and heel horse. Honkey Tonk has been competed and won on from the highest to lowest levels in the team roping world. Honkey Tonk will score, runs hard, and finishes so fast! I like to compare Honkey Tonk to a souped-up luxury car. He has all the power you can ask for yet is smooth and easy handling. Honkey Tonk is safe, you can leave him off for months get back on him and he will be the same horse. He is fancy broke. We have hauled Honkey Tonk literally all over the country. He has seen the bright lights in Las Vegas at the World Series Finale. Honkey Tonk has also been hauled to ProRodeos including Cheyenne, Reno, and everywhere else in between. Brooke has hauled him to numerous World Series ropings and jackpots heading on him. We have also hauled Honkey Tonk to numerous ranch rodeos. We have let young kids rope both ends on him and they get along great together. Honkey Tonk is a true gentleman. He aims to please and be your friend. Honkey Tonk has been one of Brooke’s go-to ranch horses over the years. He is steadfast and unwavering. There have been times where Brooke thought she would have to carry him home but he never gave up. Branding, sorting and gathering has all been part of Honkey Tonk’s resume. Honkey Tonk was born and raised on the Tongue River Ranch in Paducah, Texas. Honkey Tonk is an own son of Cats Hillbilly whose offspring have made quite the splash in the ranch and team roping world. Cats Hillbilly has won $30,000 in the NCHA. Honkey Tonk carries the Tongue River ranch brands. The brands convey history and legacy that have been passed down from generation to generation. Tongue River breeds horses that will have quickness, stamina, speed, cow sense, versatility and a lot of heart. Honkey Tonk is no exception to this rule. Day-to-day at Tongue River Ranch, the horse is still just as important as it was in 1898. Tongue River Ranch was very honored to be the 2011 recipient of the prestigious AQHA Best of Remuda Award. We are proud to bring a horse like Honkey Tonk to the best team roping horse sale in America. We welcome and encourage you to come to our place and try Honkey Tonk.
