We are proud to have had the opportunity to introduce the bald-faced Paint stallion Colonels Smoking Gun (Gunner) into the Reining Horse Industry... only the second horse to reach NRHA Ten Million Dollar Sire status

The first reining horse Paul and Pam Rohus ever owned was "Gunner". Paul and Pam Rohus took Gunner to trainer Clint Haverty, who brought him along and competed him as a 3-year-old to win the 1996 Open Reining Futurity at the APHA World Show as well as the 1996 NRHA Futurity Reserve Championship. Gunner was sold to Kebra Ranch at the 1996 NRHA Futurity in Oklahoma City. Gunner continued on with his show career winning the APHA world championship in 1997 in Junior Reining, was the 1998 NRBC Open Reserve Champion and the 2001 United States Equestrian Team Festival of Champions National Reining Champion in Gladstone, New Jersey. He retired with an Equi-Stat record of $177,386. His accolades earned him immortalization as a Breyer model horse in 2001, and NRHA inducted him into their Hall of Fame in 2003. In 2005, Tim and Colleen McQuay bought Gunner and stood him at their McQuay Stables in Tioga, Texas, where he lived out his life. Gunner was a phenomenal reining horse and we are grateful to have owned such a great horse in our lifetime. He had a big heart and the crowds always loved him! ...Everyone loves Gunner! 

 In Memory of Gunner...3/18/93 - 7/8/2013. We are honored to continue his legacy with a bald-faced dual registered Quarter Horse / Paint stallion Colonels Lil Gun.

Paul and Pam Rohus were blessed with the first son of Gunner...Colonels Lil Gun

Lil Gun, taken to trainer Clint Haverty who competed on him as a 3-year old and placed 6th at the 2000 APHA World Championship Reining Futurity.
