Behind the sale: Brian and Lisa Fulton had their first production sale in 2000, after starting their breeding operation in 1998. Brian, 12-time all-around cowboy on the Badland Circuit, and 1996 PRCA reserve champion steer wrestler, started breeding horses when he was having a hard time finding the type of horse he liked. He wanted a horse that not only had speed and cow, but also the right mental attitude to do his job. Brian and Lisa are raising three boys--Jake, Jared and John Lloyd.
Best known for: High-level performance horses with ranch-raised trainability, speed, cow sense, and substance. The Fultons stand two stallions—A Streak Of Fling and CS Flashlight. The Fultons have owned Streak of Fling for seven years now, and his get are proving themselves in the rodeo arena. CS Flashlight’s first riding 2-year-olds will be offered at this year’s sale, and he shows a lot of potential in the rodeo arena as well. The Fultons are also known for their work with young riders. Every summer they mentor a group of talented young horsemen who help prep performance prospects for the sale.
Expect to see: 70 weanlings, yearlings, and broke 2-, 3- and 4-year-olds that have been ridden out on the ranch, and are ready for any type of performance work. The sale is held at the Cherry County Fairgrounds, with easy access from I-83.
