O'Donnell Quarter Horses currently stand two stallions and run a small herd of broodmares along their 160 acre ranch in Cardwell, MT. Each stallion is backed with proven speed lines that have been not only experienced success on the track, but in the barrel arena, as well. O'Donnell Quarter Horses are very selective when it comes to their broodmares and have built their program primarily through the mares they own.

"Our mares represent some of the most successful lines in the industry, consisting of own daughters of Streakin Six, Dash Ta Fame, Dr Nick Bar, Fire Water Flit, Shawne Bug and Paddys Irish Whiskey to name a few," says Tim. "Our broodmare herd has an emphasis on successful barrel lines, but we appreciate and have some cow bred mares in our program, as well."

Not only do the O'Donnell broodmares have proven pedigrees, but most have been successful as proven race horses, barrel horses and performance horses, as well as proven producers.

"Our daughter, Amber, is currently hauling a Dr Nick Bar daughter and has a couple of the colts we have raised in training. We plan to embryo transfer Amber's mare, until she is retired from the barrel pen. Cody has a has been focusing his time and energy on some of our up and coming two and three year olds, which we plan to retain and promote as barrel futurity horses. These fillies are made up of both Toro The Blurr and Finish Line Express daughters, along with an O'Donnell bred and raised daughter of Letta Hank Do It."

The O'Donnell family first became involved with raising Quarter Horses following the purchase of Weavers Doc Ima Poco (aka "Rope"), a 1999 buckskin stallion. "Buying Rope was a big step for us. Rope allowed us to initially experience the breeding business. It was a definite learning curve, being a first time stallion owner, but it was a milestone in our lives as Quarter Horse breeders," says Tim. In order to completely commit to producing barrel racing horses, the O'Donnells made the decision to sell Weavers Doc Ima Poco in the spring of 2012. He is now proudly owned by Jennifer Johnson of Deep Creek Quarter Horses in Townsend, MT. "We are blessed to have Rope go to such a worthy home. Jennifer has experienced several halter class victories with her 2010 Weavers Doc Ima Poco filly and aspires to show Weavers Doc Ima Poco, along with several more of his get, in the near future." ...read more...
