Welcome to Berton Quarter Horses.
Berton Quarter Horses have raised and stood some great ones.
We began in the early 70's with Sir Raleigh which we stood in 1971 & 1972 and went on from there to raise some of his best known daughters that crossed extremely well to our next stallion in the 70's Leo's Otoe who was the Pacific Coast Reserve Champion Stallion in both 1971 and 1972 before retiring to breeding. Bred to Poco Dixiann, she produced us Skip's Sweet Dixie a mare that produced us champion after champion and most of all had all fillies except for Windridges Breeze who in the 80's sired us horses for that time that were pretty, balanced and very correct. He could take a mare and clean her up everywhere. His daughters are extremely strong producers. Then in the 80's we bred Peggy Roan 42 to Pretty Impressive which gave us Western Impressive which we sold as a 2 year old and reserved breedings to. From there we also raised Western Impress. The dam of Western Impress is a Leo's Otoe daughter.
He went on to become an awesome producer as well as Western Impressive which we had a chance to stand again later on.
Also at the same time we raised Imperial Snips a stallion in his time that had no Impressive bloodlines and stood 16.2H tall. He would throw us the size we needed to grow with the industry and his daughters were extremely strong producers crossed with the Sir Cool Skip and Sir Cool Star daughters. That brings us to the 90's. Changing with the times we knew we had to get another outside cross as everyone on the ranch was very closely bred. We then bred Sweet Rosie Reed (a daughter of Imperial Snips x Snip Imperial Reed and dam was Sweet Oto a daughter of Leos Oto) to Ima Cool Skip and created Sir Cool Skip. From here the rest of the story is history. Sir Cool Skip went on to make his mark in the Quarter Horse Industry Worldwide. Stamping his foals one right after the next. Winner after winner. He will be missed dearly. 1993-2010
