Stylin With Pepto, the 2009 son of Peptoboonsmal out of the $100,000-producing mare Docs Stylenaetta, has been a well-kept secret in Abilene, Kansas, for the bulk of his life.

Until recently, the Brown family has kept their stallion to predominantly breed their own mares, perfecting the crosses and ensuring the quality of the colts they produce.

“We have a horse that’s structurally and physically what the industry needs and is looking for,” Brown said. “He’s producing foals that are really trainable, but they’re sure gritty when you crawl on them. We’ve been so fortunate to pair up with West Ranch because we can provide a tremendous breeding service through them—either on-site or with shipped semen. Especially being paid up in the Riata Buckle, he’s a great opportunity for the future of the rope horse business.”

The stallion is as at home in the branding pen tied next to other horses as he is with Brown’s 8-year-old daughter on him bareback in the front yard. He’s made a great using horse, and his colts have topped out at 15.1 hands crossed on moderately sized mares.

“He’s such a typy, right kind of animal,” Brown said. “He’s versatile. He just fits, and he really shows a lot of the Docs Stylish Oak look. He throws a lot of color, and a lot of chrome even on mares without any. He’s produced about 65-75% roans up to this point.”
