Watch for updates on FB of new foals. Most are for sale! I will only be keeping one or two to show. Also look for young prospects for sale. Many halter prospects and riders offered for your consideration!

Now that our 2010 foals are weaned, Clayton Brookwell made a wise choise in "Coolest Pepper". Out of an own daughter of Coolest and by The Peppered Kid, this black colt has the best head and neck of any colt I've ever seen. Watch for Clayton on the show circuit in the future! Good luck Clayton and Congratulations on your new purchase. Please keep in touch and let us know how he's doing!
Tracie Robinson recently achieved Reserve High Point horse at the Lacombe Open Horse show. Congratulations Tracie and Gambler!
She likes Gambler so much that she recently traded her 2 year old Jose daughter for a yearling black colt (soon to be gelding), wanting to train another willing Jose partner and allowing me the opportunity to show a Jose filly myself. I'm really looking forward to showing Zoe in 2011... thanks Tracie!
Congratulations also to Liz on the purchase of Last Little Baggins aka Pearl. I understand you're having a blast with your new girl. How is she doing?
I recently saw Ellie, a 3 year old Jose out of Pocos Diamond Dakota and she's HUGE - at least 16 hh and probably 1300 lbs plus and she's NN and in foal to Call Me Tardee Clu for a 2011 foal. This foal will be a 3/4 sibling to the filly that I showed to the 2010 filly futurity at the Canadian National QH show in August. I'm as excited as you are Kristie!
Good luck to everyone else too! Please feel free to post your accomplishments here!

It is with deep sadness that I announce the passing of Custer, our beloved palomino stallion by GC Hired Gun and out of Featured At Last, a daughter of At Long Last. Custer was the future of our breeding program and the source of many dreams for me - dreams that will have to be put on hold until his foals are old enough to follow in his hoofprints.
He was truly a great one and will be missed by everyone who knew the big boy. We do have 6 mares in foal to Custer for 2010 and 3 foals on the ground by him this year - including a palomino colt "Glimmerman" owned by Michele Smith. "Hemi" as he is known was the 2009 Canadian National Weanling Colt Champion. Watch for Custer's babies in future AQHA shows.

We're about halfway through the breeding season and we've been busy!
The Equine Distemper we experienced early in January 2009 has resolved itself and we are clean. Presently, we have 8 outside mares here and some are just about to head home, safe in foal, happy and healthy.
Our first Jose baby of 2009 is on the ground and she's a beauty with a bald face and 2 matching hind socks. I hope to have some pictures of her posted soon. She's going to be tall and flashy! The Custer babies are going to be typey! The buckskin colt has grown 3" already and he's going to be tall with a "V'ed" chest already. Eva's filly is really starting to fill out and will be a tough show contender in the future! Most of our babies are for sale, so please check them out on the 2009 foals page.
Give us a call today to book your mares or to check out our horses for sale. We are willing to make package deals and take payments.

Welcome to Kirtzinger Quarter Horses, home of the following stallions: "The Peppered Kid" aka Jose; "GC Hired Gun" aka Custer and "Call Me Tardee Clu" aka TC.
We strive to produce horses that have the desired visual traits of a true Quarter Horse - Good straight legs, a long neck, short back, HUGE hip, outstanding forearms and gaskins as well as having that overall 'pretty' that can't be measured with a yardstick or a protractor. Our horses have to be able to ride after they're finished a career as a Halter Horse. Not only do they look good, but they must have the smarts to learn a job and the positive attitude that allows me to enjoy working with them on a daily basis. When I take them to the shows, I'm often asked if they've been gelded. That's how I expect them to act when they're not in the breeding shed.
If you should have any questions about the stallions or any of our horses, please feel free to 'chat'. I log in periodically, although I do have a 'full time job' (one that really pays a wage!) so I may be a day or so getting back to you sometimes.
Enjoy the horse 'eye candy' as you surf the site. Please feel free to pass on this link to anyone who enjoys a good quarter horse. We look forward to meeting you sometime down the road!
