In 1976 I purchased some bred Quarter horse mares. Most of them were working horses bred going back to King & Leo. I then purchased a stallion who was a grandson of Two Eyed Jack. In the next few years I purchased a few more mares and started keeping some of my better fillies.
I then purchased a stallion from my uncle Louie Krogman. This horse was named Krog's Laddy. He was a powerful horse with a lot of body and bone. He was very nice headed and had a good disposition. His sire, Leo 3 was a well known horse who ran AAA, but Laddy was known for his heavy bodied colts which made top ranch and arena horses. Laddy proved to be a great cross on my Two Eyed Jack mares.
Today we still have some Laddy daughters in our broodmare band and they have proved to be the kind everyone likes. Currently the stallions we are using are really doing a fine job for us. We are trying to combine color, confirmation and disposition with working horse bloodlines. Disposition is very important to us. Any mare that did not have the right attitude was culled. We also are trying to put a lot of color in our horses.
Our Senior Sire, Krog Classy Cowboy, is a gray son of Redmount Blue (Going back to Robert Redford). The next three generations back on Cowboy's pedigree on his sire's side are all blue roan. Cowboy throws an awful lot of color. approximately 90% of his offspring have been blue roan or gray with the balance being red roan, dun or grullo. We are riding some of his colts now and they have a super disposition and will ride with the best.
My Casino Quincy is a red roan son of Blueboy quincy, going back to Sir Quincy Dan. Blueboy Quincy is a 16 hand blue roan horse who excelled in the arena. Casino also throws a lot of color, red and blue roans. Most have lots of chrome as he has four stocking legs and a bald face. Casino has a super disposition and passes it on to his foals.
In October of 1997 I purchased a buckskin Stallion. He goes back to Two Eyed Jack and Boston Mac on his top side and his mother is a granddaughter of Sugar Bars. I do not think you could put a prettier head on a horse and his disposition can not be beat. We are looking forward to our first foals out of NJAS Silver Bars this spring.
Approximately 15 years ago, my father, Clarence Krogman, purchased a black and white tobiano stallion. We used him on our Quarter horse mares and all of his foals were spotted. He turned out to be homozygous. This stallion's name was King Leo San #118134 , who was by Leo San Man #2400 by Leo San Siemon QH#124417.
We kept quite a few fillies out of King Leo San in our brood mare band. Today approximately half of our paint mares are sisters, sired by this horse.
These mares have a world of disposition and lots of color, many are black and white. They are also very nice to ride and will really watch a cow. There are many geldings that we have raised that are being used for ranch and rodeo use. I have been told by some ranchers that they are as "cowy" as anything they have ever been on.
Our paint stallion that we are currently using is a brown overo, Gumbo Gus. He is a big horse with lots of speed in his background. We have only had two colt crops out of Gus, but they seem to have a lot of brains and a nice disposition. I think he will be a good horse on our mares and I am looking forward to riding some horses out of Gus.
These paint horses will work in any phase of the horse business - whether it be arena horses, pleasure, halter or just anything you can imagine. If you are looking for top quality foundation bred Paint Horses, then check us out. We are sure we can help you get the horse you need.
