The heart and soul of any ranch is it’s crew. This is the heart of the Rising Heart Ranch! These
horses work hard for a living and truly enjoy their jobs. They work in all kinds of weather and
take care of their riders. They are horses who have a lot of heart and try. This is what our
breeding program is about.
Melba is a 1991 Grade AQHA
Bay Mare. She is well worth her
weight in gold!! After working on
the ranch for several years she is
now enjoying her semi retirement
as Riley’s horse. She is also the
matriarch of our ranch horses
being the dam of Molli, JD and
Melba and D with their “boys” at
the 2011 Lincoln County Fair
Cabio Diablo is a 1994 Grade AQHA
Brown Gelding. He was a range stud
before coming to us. Now he is one of the
best horses on the ranch. There isn’t a
job that I wouldn’t trust him to do. He has
a LOT of cow in him and can often out
think even the cow! D is now semi-retired
from ranch work, but also enjoys his time
with Kade in the saddle. He's still a super
handy horse for starting colts too!
D’s Hot Ta Molli is a 2000 Grade AQHA
Bay Mare. Her dam is Melba and her sire is
Cabio Diablo. It is a great cross and she is
a great hard working mare! She is following
in the footsteps of her parents becoming
one of the best horses on the ranch. Molli
also produced a super nice colt by Macs
Yeller Feller. I look forward to using her colt
on the ranch. He's a perfect combination of
all of the "greats" here on the ranch!
Cattle Kate is a 1996 Grade AQHA
Buckskin Mare. She is the only horse that
my Grandpa ever owned. (Half of.) In a
partnership with my Grandpa I got this
great mare. She has a HUGE heart in a
13.2 hand body. Don’t tell her she’s small,
she wouldn’t believe you anyways! Kate
has been on maternity leave for the last
few years. I wanted to get foals out of her
for my sons to have a part of their Great-
Grandpa's horse. So far, Riley has a
buckskin colt by Macs MK Bar, Kade has a
bay filly by Macs MK Bar, and Michael's will
be born in 2015 by Twenty Four Hour Sun.
JD is a 2004 Grade AQHA Pale Palomino
Gelding. He is sired by Macs MK Bar and
out of Melba. This is one big hombre!
Standing at almost 16 hands and 1300lbs
JD is a super stout using horse that will
stand up to years of work!
HM Shez Justa Star is a 2001 APHA
Breeding Stock Bay Mare. Dingo is a great
mare for most anyone to ride. She is
gentle and smooth as can be. Due to mild
lameness issues she can’t be used hard on
the ranch.

that will forever be in our hearts!
Thank you Melba for all that you did
for us!
