2015 Red Roan

Tom Lohse / Agent: John Hall, Buffalo, WY

Rising Pepto aka “Bird Dog” is a 7-year-old, own son of One Time Pepto, whose offspring has earned over $1,000,000 in NRCHA competitions, and the dam is Rising Starlight, who has won the Superhorse title at the AQHA World Show and has several other accolades! He’s following in their footsteps and there is truly nothing he can’t do. He took John to the pay window for $40,000 just during Vegas week this past December! We have been beyond impressed with his athleticism and level head. You can head, heel or breakaway on him and you would be hard pressed to find a flaw in any event. He has been hauled to several rodeos and jackpots from the 13's to the 9's, winning money on both ends at most everywhere he goes. He has also been used at the Indian National Finals in Las Vegas and the bright lights of the big city never phased him. He competed in the 2018 NRCHA Snaffle bit futurity and will ride around as collected and correct as you could want one. On top of him being a jam-up arena horse, you can drag calves to the fire at the ranch or gather miles in rough country and he will go all day. Nothing phases Bird Dog and he is all business but is very gentle and saddles up the same whether he has had two days off or two months off. We truly can’t say enough good things about this horse.
