Many of our American Quarter Horses are imported from their ranch homes in the USA, to settle in South Wales - where the grass really IS greener.
To ensure superb temperament and stock working sensibilities in our foals, our foundation breeding is to the strictest (NFQHA) standard.
• Athletic Performance Conformation
• Top Quality performance pedigrees
• Versatility with cow sense
• Great with people, and children
• High NFQHA Foundation Breeding
• With interesting color as a bonus
Izzy is NOT a palomino.
She carries no cream gene.

IMPORTANT MISSION STATEMENT
FACT: It is not unusual for a Registered Purebred Quarter Horse
to carry 75% - or even 94% - Thoroughbred Blood.
Over the past several decades, the original Quarter Horse Type and
Character have been steadily eroded by the constant influx of
Thoroughbred blood, via AQHA's Appendix Registry.
At the Lonesome Dove, our purebred Quarter Horses are either Certified, or Percentage Confirmed, by NFQHA to contain less than 20% added Thoroughbred blood over 11 generations.
The higher the NFQHA rating, the greater the actual Quarter Horse
(Stock Type) content in the horse. Learn more about this urgent threat to QH Type & Character in the article linked below.
