We are extremely proud of the broodmares that we have assembled for our breeding program here at Hooper Crossing Ranch. They are all double registered in both AQHA and FQHR. Each one produces a quality foal with their own unique characteristics when bred to our Stallion, Spatz Harland.
Late Night Chocolate (Breeze)
2000 AQHA, FQHR Bay Mare

We have assembled a band of quality broodmares that we believe when crossed with our stallion, Spatz Harland produce something for every rider.

Poco Holly Page (Holly)
2007 AQHA, FQHR Brown Mare
Holly is our horse with the highest Foundation percentage on the ranch. She can claim many of the greats in her pedigree including Hollywood Dun It, King, Black Bud and Page Lee.
Holly is another good minded Hooper Crossing horse with a lot of athleticism. Her babies are super friendly and full of personality!
This cross with Spatz Harland will throw some beautiful, trainable babies. Their get is 94.63% Foundation.
Reeds Zan Joey (Joey)
2004 AQHA Red Dun Mare
Joey is out of Charlie Reed's last foal crop, bred to excel as rope horses and to work for a living. This sweet tempered gal is 88.9% Foundation bred, with the classic quarter horse look - the face of an angel with the power of a locomotive. Her foals are extremely easy going, well muscled and straight.

Smart Movin' Michelle (Bobbie)
2009 AQHA, FQHR Smokey Black Mare
Hooper Crossing Ranch has found our 'NIC'! This cross between Spatz and Bobbie produces some of the most outstanding foals you will find anywhere!
Bobbie is a sweetheart, and quite often the first to greet you in the pasture. She is a granddaughter of High Brow Hickory, and her sire is 3/4 brother to High Brow Cat, sire of more than $74 million in money earners! Her bloodlines are impeccable, including many of the Foundation greats, and going all the way back to AQHA #1 Wimpy. When crossed with Spatz Harland, their get is 91.50% Foundation. Crossing her color, exceptional cow working bloodlines and conformation with Spatz's looks, athleticism and disposition, has produced babies that have people standing in line.
We knew this would be an outstanding cross! Meet 'Spatz Hibrow Cotton'....... Bobbi's 2017 filly as a 2 year old!
Rubys N Cash (Ruby)
2012 AQHA, FQHR Bay Roan Mare
Ruby comes to us by way of Nevada. Her grandsire on the bottom side is ‘Nevada Red Pepper’, owned by the Van Norman Ranch, winners of 2001 AQHA Best Remuda Award. This line is the ideal ranch horse, with lots of ‘cow’, and the ability to cover big, rough country, many showing well in working cowhorse classes. Her top side is bred for speed and cow working ability.
Keith put 60 days of training on Ruby as a 3 yr. old. She was one of those horses that impressed you from the very start with her great mind. You could introduce her to something new, (flag, rope, tarp, saddle), she would work it through and it was never an issue again. The next day it would seem as if she had been doing it for months!
Ruby is a good sized girl…. About 15-2 to 15-3 hh.
Together with our stallion, ‘Spatz’ and his extreme athleticism and laid back attitude, this cannot help but be another outstanding cross.
Meet Ruby's 2019 filly,
Spatz Pepper Mercede
HPM Smart Lil Meg (June)
2010 AQHA, FQHR Palomino Mare
This laid back mare has oodles of great foundation bloodlines loaded with proven cow horse and performance abilities. June goes back to Peppy San Badger, Freckles Playboy, Hollywood Gold, and High Brow Hickory, just to name a few. We are excited to add her to our lineup of ladies.
Our Spatz/June filly is stout, strong and straight! What a beauty!

Spatz Thirsty as Heck ~ 2020 stud colt
2014 AQHA, FQHR Brown Mare
Driftin Cowboy Girl
This year we welcomed our first foal out of Cowboy Girl and she did not disappoint! Her stud colt, 'Spatz Thirsty as Heck' was just what we hoped he would be!
We picked Cowboy Girl for our broodmare band after owning several of her siblings. It is a privilege to add the Driftwood line to our breeding stock, one of the best roping/rodeo horses in history. We were attracted to their temperament, good bone and strong feet, and nice back that allows your saddle to stay where you put it. These horses are good to rope off of.... they take to the job with confidence and can handle dragging or pulling what is on the other end. They have plenty of cow and travel outside in different terrain extremely well.
Crossed with Spatz Harland she produces one heck of a good using horse.
