Carter Acres Horses in Sales

A wise individual told us that sometimes you have to sell the good ones--and sometimes at less than they're worth--in order to gain a following. He was right. He also told us that he always hoped that everyone who bought one, made money when they sold one (if they chose to do that.) That way everyone wins and hopefully they'd be back when they need another good mount. We agree with his philosophy. Here are a few that we know of that are doing us and their new owners proud.
Craig Hostetler
and CA Tanzanite (aka Boulder)


Only four years old and the sale video shows him on trails, in water, in and out of the arena, multiple riders, tarps, standing for a big ball bouncing, etc. You can catch it here (not sure how long it will be available) if you want to look! His new owner in Oregon loves him! He's gotten around; born in Minnesota, moved to Missouri, sold in Utah and now home in Oregon! Pretty well traveled for four years old! He made the Top 20 in the sale selling for $23,000. 
Melissa Arnold
and CA Genuine Valentine (was CA Chief) aka Woodrow

Woodrow is a 2017 sorrel gelding by RC Calcetas and out of CA Vixie. We sold this colt as a foal in the fall of 2017. Melissa has done a great job with him; the video for his upcoming sale is truly impressive. Check it out at 
There are many requirements for this sale and it takes a special horse to make the cut. We look forward to seeing how Woodrow sells for Melissa.

Amos Yoder 
and Sunnys BLK Tator Tot (aka Creed)


Creed is a 2018 black gelding by RC Calcetas and out of Kings Miss Sunny. We sold Sunny in foal the fall of 2017. Her new owner was kind enough to let us brand her colt since he was all our breeding. As just a young five year old, he commanded an impressive $13,000 in The American Classic online sale put on at (sale ending June 5, 2023.) 
Kevin Raber 
Diamond K Horsemanship
and CA Duke of Bolton


Pepto is a 2018 Blue Roan gelding out of CA Pippa and by Chex Peppy Doc. He sold as a foal to Missouri and somehow found his way to Ohio. He sold as one of just five, 4 year olds (all the rest were older) in the August 2022 League of Legends sale, hosted by Turner Performance Horses, in Helena MT for a whopping $50,000! Pretty exciting for a Carter Acres debut in that sale!

CA King Chex is a 2018 gelding out of Queen Jessamun, our best broodmare and by Chex Peppy Doc, a stallion we leased for two years. 
He sold for a top 10% sale price of $9000 in the Hermanson Kist Sale
September 2022.
Annie & Josh Wood
and Fullmer Performance Horses
(JD and Bailey Fullmer)
and CA Morganite

On the tremendous showing of CA Morganite for the Billings Livestock Sale in October 2021. Though she didn't sell, she commanded an impressive $6000 bid, the best seen for a two year old while we watched. We'll look forward to seeing more of her on the riding performance page as her training continues! (CA Morganite is eligible for the Ranch Horse Extravaganza in Mason City Iowa in September 2022. Idaho is a long way to come, but maybe!!)

A Carter Acres bred gelding made the cut into the prestigious Diamond McNabb gelding sale! We sold Four L Lady Jackie in foal to LJSR Sterling Roan and "Cherry Bomb" was the resulting foal. He didn't grow up here, but he was bred here! Congratulations to Houck Horse Company for making him into the horse he is today and for the impressive top 20% sale price of $23,000 as just a four-year-old!
