     This boy is a beautiful stallion... He is 100% Foundation Grullo,( double registered with NFQHA & FQHR  ) He is one of the ONLY  grullo stallions that is truly 100% foundation. He is 100% in all of the foundation registries. Poco is  color tested and is (EE) Homozygous Black,proven for the black gene / pigment.  He will NEVER produce a red foal. ( no chestnuts or sorrels, regardless of the color of the mare)  "Poco" stands around 14.3hh, has the true bulldog style build with a great disposition,  an easy going nature and a wonderful mind. He has Foundation QH's who's who in his bloodlines: Poco Bueno, Leo San, double bred Beaver Creek, and goes back to Blackburn and Waggoner mare's . He is also registered with the International Buckskin Horses Association (IBHA) His foals are well built, classy and great to work with. If you are looking for a stallion that has the whole package take a look at "Poco" Whether you are looking for a prospect for the show-ring, ranch or just to enjoy , with his breeding, color, good looks and build you can't go wrong with "Poco" as a sire. Bred to be & produce what the Foundation Quarter Horse is. To date he has mostly produced dun's, black's and LOTS of grullo's. He has produced offspring that have excelled with earnings  in Reined cow horse / Working cow horse and Western Pleasure. Foals by Poco are pictured below...
We would like to thank all the mare owners over the years that have bred to Poco. As of 2013 we are no longer standing him to outside mares. We will continue to breed him to a select group of our mares every year, and have offspring of his offered for sale.
