"Our program has its foundation the first time I saw the great mare Cow Lady Drift in the late 1960's. I traveled to the Flying S Ranch to see her sire, Orphan Drift, and all Stanley Johnston's Driftwood mares."
Reference Horses Click on the horse's name or photo to see more about them.
Cow Lady Drift - I first saw Cow Lady Drift in the late 1960's. She went on to produce 4 AQHA Champions and finish in the Top 10 at the AQHA World Show in Reining and Working Cowhorse.
Orphans Bar Girl - Photo taken at 30 years of age. This mare was the foundation mare of our program producing the stallions Snippys Driftwood, Arielwood Red, Driftwood Smoke and Arielwood Gold.
Snippys Cowboy - AQHA Champion son of Lady Cow Drift. I saw Snippys Cowboy many times and knew he represented the sire line I wanted.
Snippys Driftwood - Snippys Driftwood started us in the breeding business. Several of his offspring have earned over $50,000 as rodeo horses, made the finals in HS rodeo, etc.
Arielwood Red - I raised Arielwood Red out of our program mare, Orphans Bar Girl.
Just Driftwood was selected to replace his sire, Snippys Driftwood. He was put down in August of 2011.
Snippy Rain - He was purchased by John Robinson of Oklahoma and he has him still. He is a rodeo $$$ earner in Heading.
Snippys Becky - Our Open / Youth AQHA show mare in the 1980's accumulating 17 halter, 17 heading, 16 heeling and 1 western pleasure point, achieving her ROM.
Driftwood Bailey - full sibling to Snippys Driftwood who was successful on the rodeo curcuit.
