Come To The Source Production Sale
August 28, 2010 • Laramie, Wyoming
The legendary Quarter Horse Blue Valentine was well known as a performance horse with trademark color, and his offspring also offer that Blue Valentine color, good dispositions, substance and minds.
Twelve years ago, Randy Dunn of Bath Bros. Ranch, Chip Merritt of Merritt Quarter Horses, Sam Shoultz of KeSa Quarter Horses, and Dick Van Pelt of Vista Grande Ranch wanted to preserve the Blue Valentine bloodline and make it available to other horsemen. They created the Come To The Source partnership, using their wealth of experience and the depth of their Blue Valentine bloodlines to offer top quality horses.
“At one time, there was a chance that the Blue Valentines were just going to quietly slip away,” says Kathy Merritt. “We knew there were people out there who liked these horses. What none of us knew at the time was just how much interest would develop. Blue Valentine was well known in rodeo and roping circles, but his offspring have shown they can do just about anything, and that’s a big draw.”
At the sale, you can expect to see high-quality, highpercentage Blue Valentine colts with that trademark color.
“You can’t go anywhere and see a group of horses like these all in one place,” Kathy says. “Because of the depth and diversity of Blue Valentine genetics, we can concentrate on the high percentage of Blue Valentine and blue roan color while producing a quality horse.”
