Muleshoe Ranch
Gail, Texas

The Muleshoe Ranch is a 33,280-acre working cattle ranch with history dating back to the early 1900s. The sixth-generation operation and 2014 recipient of the prestigious Zoetis AQHA Best Remuda Award is located in Gail, Texas, and is currently managed by John and Kevva Anderson.

The Muleshoe, which has been consecutively registering AQHA horses for more than 70 years, currently runs 60 head of broodmares and 5 stallions, including Riata Buckle stallions Boy Boon and Lena Stylish Doc.

Riata Buckle stallion Boy Boon (Cee Play X Sugar Boon) was purchased in 2006, making the perfect addition to the Muleshoe’s breeding program. At 15 hands, Boy Boon produces babies that are athletic and quick-footed with great dispositions and good bone. Boy Boon has close to 200 AQHA-registered babies.

Riata Buckle stallion Lena Stylish Doc (Lena Barbie Doc x Playin Stylish) was then purchased in 2019 and used as a heel horse until an injury fated him to the breeding barn, exclusively. At the 2022 National Finals Rodeo, Cody Snow won money heading on Play Sleeping by Lena Stylish Doc. Play Sleeping was the first ARHFA finalist to make a debut under the lights of the Thomas & Mack.

“Muleshoe Ranch wanted to be a part of The Riata Buckle because of Denny Gentry,” John said. “Stallion incentive programs like Riata Buckle will help the horse market. Despite the economy, the horse market is still strong.”
