Curly’s notable offspring include Minnie Gun, the 2022 San Angelo barrel racing round two winner and round one winner of the 2022 Denver Stockshow and Rodeo, PC This Dude’s Got a Gun, the two-time PRCA/AQHA reserve steer roping horse of the year, and Fiesta Cantina, the 2023 National High School Rodeo Association barrel racing champion. These achievements highlight the stallion’s versatility as a roping and barrel-racing sire.

Fiestas Gotta Gun’s unique pedigree makes him an ideal outcross for race-bred mares, offering breeders an opportunity to tap into his exceptional genetic qualities. Standing 15.2 hands, Curly is known for his strong build, great bone and good foot, traits he passes on to his foals. His offspring are highly trainable and good-minded, excelling in various disciplines.
