Wow! Another year has come and will quickly be gone, however we at Zollinger Quarter Horses are thrilled about the modifications and challenges that every year brings. We say thanks to all of you that have actually bought horses from us and look forward to checking out with you at our sale this year. .
Virtually 50 years ago Wade bought his first Quarter Steed mare. She came from Hamilton, MT in the back of a chicken hauling bus. Later on he bought a lovely bay son of Prince Bar by three Bars TB. He ran them on the chariot as well as rode them. Later on, more equines came along consisting of a little bay mare called Bay Ida Mae by Cowboy II by Joe Moore out of Baldys Ida by Baldy Joe by Joe Hancock. she was bit, 15 hands, and could really run. She went on to produce a performance history holder by Lad Leo and 7 other AAA/AA colts consisting of one by the terrific Azure Te.
In 1971 Wade bought Lad Leo, the last own boy of the excellent Leo. Lad, ended up being the foundation of the Zollinger reproducing program. Like his father, Lad Leo stamped his offspring with appropriate conformation, excellent bone, large feet, excellent muscling, intelligence, and, of course, a willing disposition. Lad put Pitch in business, and his son JX Leo Sun Up and the Lad Leo children and granddaughters keep him in company.
After many years working in the Quarter Equine Market, Wade has actually achieved a few of the highest honors there are in the Equine World. The cattle ranch has actually been included in the Quarter Equine Journal, The American Quarter Equine, and several other books and magazines across the world. The Western Horseman in Germany did a five page post about the ranch and its achievements. In 2010, Western Horseman called Zollinger Ranch as one of the Premier Breeders of Efficiency Steeds in the country. We are pleased of our program and exactly what we’ve achieved in the quarter horse industry.
Our goal is and has actually constantly been to breed and raise quality steeds with great minds, excellent dispositions, correct conformation, and athletic ability. We raise steeds you can do anything on.
