Jim Farnsworth bought this stud as a yearling because he needed better colts to start. He hunted one that scored high in the five traits Greg Kesler once told him dictated great value (disposition, conformation, color, pedigree and athletic ability). Wary of a cutter too small or a reiner too slow, Farnsworth notes this stud is not only out of a Miss N Cash daughter, but is by an NRCHA Hackamore reserve world champ “that could really run.” Plus, he’s super trainable.

“There’s a lot of great rope horses out there, but you don’t know what kind of time-consuming nightmare it was to make them, you know?” asked Farnsworth, who crosses the stud on his Colonel Freckles-bred mares. “I didn’t want to go through that. This stud was a joy to make, and was always safe to have around our five kids.”

Smoke Em Dash will be a Riata Buckle stallion.
