Finally was able to come up with an update for
you on my gorgeous girl, Hancocks Velvet MA, now
known as Arya. Arya has by far exceeded all of my
dreams. Super smooth, long, athletic, and strong are
all the moves this little girl makes. Something you
would never expect from such a big and powerful
filly. Not to mention the sweetness and softness she
exudes will make you fall in love with her at first
Arya has shown total willingness and
proves the sweet amazing minds you guys breed for.
My bond with her is strong already in the 6 months
I've had her home and the 100 hours under saddle we
have worked together on since November 1, 2016. I
really can't wait to start her on some cows and
really see her full potential. Arya is my first MA
colt but definitely not my last!
again for making this girl from New York City
realize her dream of owning this filly!

Feb 6, 2017 Montoya Sierra 2013 filly
Dear Mike and Delanie,
I wanted to give you an
update on Montoya Sierra's 2013 chestnut filly.
She's without a doubt the neatest using horse I've
ever had the opportunity to work with and I'm proud
to call her mine. She's big boned, great minded,
super athletic, and easy on the eyes. She's got a
great country covering long trot and will really
watch a cow. The moves she makes on a cow are as big
and powerful as she is! She is the second MA colt I
have owned and just like the first Smokin Redbone
baby she is the reason I will be back to purchase
another foal in the future. I just wanted to take
the time to say thank you again, and if Laramie is
still around tell her hello! She helped us at the
ranch the day we purchased our filly, and we are
extremely pleased we picked Montoya Sierra's foal!
Sincerely, Jessica F. Oklahoma

Hey Mike and Delanie, We wanted
to send y'all a picture of one of the fillies we
bought from y'all two years ago. This is Roan
Bones/Miss Bee Bee's 2012 filly, ( we call her
Sage). Both fillies are by far the best horses we
have ever started.

Good morning Mike and Delanie,
We are so happy with your boy! This video is
ride number five and he was a perfect gentleman in a
new environment, indoors for the first time,
trailering for the first time since he has arrived
at our house.
I will attempt his first Trailride
on Monday, which is my next day off. I have enough
horses in training to keep me busy up to 10 hours a
day right now and honestly only get to him two to
three times a week. It confirms the great mind you
folks are producing!!!
Soon I will focus on
Wiley Badger MA more, although same sire as Smokin
Flint MA, he is a completely different horse.
Already the same height as his half-brother at only
two years old. Gorgeous conformation. I will start
him lightly this summer, then let him grow through
the winter and restart him next spring. Originally
we thought we might sell one of the three Colts
after they were started, but that won't happen :-)
Frosted Top Moon MA has embedded himself pretty
solidly into my heart! He demands the most attention
from me and trots next to my truck down the driveway
when I get home in the evening, initiating everyone
else to come down to the house as well.
have been in the horse business for over 30 years
and have started hundreds of Youngsters. I wanted to
let you know that all three boys are not only
Beautiful in their conformation but have some of the
best minds I have worked with throughout my career!
My husband and I agree that all future horses we
will only be purchasing from you out of your
We are already peeking at
this year's crop :-) Thank You!
wonderful weekend, Bjarne C. ~ of Colorado
"HE'S AMAZING US!!!
2015 Blue Roan Stallion - Blu
Dividend MA (DOB - 05/10/2015)
March 20, 2016 - Blu's doing really well.
Everything is new to him so he's unsure and takes it
slow but he has yet to really "spook" or overreact
to something. He's been very level headed and that's
been a huge blessing to be able to keep moving
forward with him. He hasn't come across anything
that he doesn't have figured out within a couple
minutes. He's learning to trust us too which is
great! We can pick up all four feet now, gave him a
little trimming with the file, blanketed him, he
stalls like a pro (better then mine even), and LOVES
his grain. He's learning how to walk and trot on a
lunge line also. Right now he's not ceased to
amazing us. Soon I'll start teaching him western
pleasure as I'll be showing him in halter classes
this summer along with my 5 year old Galahad this
year with both the boys. It'll still be exciting to
see how Blu does with it.

Hello! I just wanted to say thank you to you guys
again! I'm so in love with my filly! She's such a
dream! I love the breeding that made this amazing
horse! I would of never dreamed she would be so
easy. I put the first rides on her last week and she
did everything I asked with ease except into the
canter, a little crow hop, but she couldn't make it
perfectly easy for me!
Absolutely! I'm sure I'll be doing business with
you guys again in the future.
Thank you guys so much! Love Sierra and Sweet

Hi Mike & Delanie just
wanted to share a pic of our stud, "Hank" Hancock O
Redbone MA, with y'all. He is now a 3 yr old, I
never thought he would be as big as he is, he has
really started to spread and fill out the past 6
months. Casey uses him almost everyday and can do
anything from sorting to roping and doctoring calves
in the pasture.

Val arrived bright and early this morning. I'm
already amazed with her! She is a very easy mare
to handle just full of herself!
Well she got a
"new to her blanket" due to all the rain we are
getting. Needless to say I've never had a new horse
take it so easily. Plus she befriended my 2yr old
paint filly. Thanks so much!!!

2012 Blue Roan Filly - Blue Valentina MA
just wanted to write you and let you know what awesome
horses both of the fillies I bought from you turned out to
be! They are both 4 year olds this spring and I love having
them! I bought them as weanlings in your auction and
purchased them online, here they are 4 years later, and I
love them both!!!! They are SO awesome, they are gorgeous
foundation mares, exactly what I was looking for, and I
couldn't be happier. They both have TONS of personality and
they've come so far and learned so much over these 4 years
it's really awesome. I've double registered both as AQHA &
foundation. "Falina" is the appendix bay roan mare, I
wouldn't trade her for the world. She is super smart,
unbelievably curious about everything, outgoing and
friendly, and the bravest little horse I think I've ever
met. 'Mango' is the red roan, the one with the beautiful
blaze face, and out of a mare you told me was the sweetest
mare you had on the property. Well, I believe it, because
she is the kindest, gentlest, sweetest horse I've ever
owned. She loves people and just wants to do whatever you
ask her. Not a mean bone in that horses body! These two have
completely opposite personalities but they are both unique
and special in their own way, and I just love 'em!!! I often
pull up from work and see them standing there or running
around in the pasture, and they are sooo darn gorgeous it
takes my breath away. No kidding, they are that awesome.
They are both great athletes too. Simply awesome equines!!!!
Thank you for breeding and selling them to me! I LOVE my
girls and they are exactly what I wanted. I waited and
waited to find my perfect foundation Hancock horses and
these two are it for me (and they know it,!). I will try to
send you a cute video clip from this winter, have to figure
out where I stored it, it was muddy that day but it gives
you an idea of how much personality and athleticism they
have. Really awesome horses. I'm very proud of them....

2012 Dun Roan filly ~Redbones Diva MA
"We love our MA baby so much!" ~ Mark and Callie
from North Carolina"
Just wanted yall to see how he has grown over the
past year. He is doing great I think he gets better
"I have dealt with Mike and Delanie for years
and have always been pleased with our horses we got from
“MA Quarter Horses
produces outstanding horses with great bloodlines, awesome
minds and stunning color. Our bay roan filly from a Mike &
Delanie was one of the nicest we've ever owned. Going back
(Craig and Laurie Claver)
“I definitely recommend MA Quarter horses, best
crop of stud colts you could ask for even better set of
filly's, & the 2013 set looks even better. We couldn't be
happier with the stud colt we got and we will be back for
another soon. Thank you Mike and Delanie you can definitely
tell y'all put your heart in to having the best.”
~ Angela Shearer
“Thought I would share this photo of Sassy Hancock
MA. She had her first ride today. Absolutely did a
great job. She is so quiet. I've got a feeling she
is gonna be a good one. Thanks again and I will keep
you updated on her progress."
~Harold Stapleton, Dayton, Texas.
“Here's a picture of our yearling filly, Leos
Thistle MA (aka: Sis), that we purchased from MA
Quarter Horses back in November. She is coming along
great! Sis has a very quiet, docile nature and a
great mind. She had her first farrier appointment
last week and stood like she'd been doing it her
whole life, then loaded in the trailer very quietly
to be transported to our new home and she has been
great with tying and leading her around the new
facility. She is really going to make a nice horse!
Thank you MA Quarter Horses for breeding such nice
conformation, quiet and willing horses!"
— Craig and Laurie Claver, California.
“Our yearling filly we bought as a weanling from
MA Quarter Horses! She's big boned. heavy muscled.
great conformation, and an awesome mind. This was
her first time to be saddled, she never offered to
buck!! I highly recommend this ranch if you’re
looking for your next working horse!! Thank
“I acquired one of Smokin Redbone's geldings and
I LOVE him!! He is a 2007 gelding named Redbones Big
Shot MA. He is so handsome and a BIG boy. 15.3
hands, 1300 pounds, big strong bones. I love his big
size, but mostly I love his personality. He is very
confident, brave (even as a 7 year old!) and very
calm but with plenty of go! He's the best horse I've
had. I'm not sure if he was gelded "late," but he
has big jowls and a leading temperament, but very
good with other horses.”
