19th Annual Fulton Family Performance Horse and Production Sale
Written by: Siri Stevens< Back to Articles
The 19th Annual Fulton Family Performance Horse and Production Sale is quickly approaching this August with an exciting change to the location. The sale will now be held at the Central States Fairgrounds in Rapid City, South Dakota. “Rapid City is a hometown area for me,” explains Lisa, who grew up 75 miles southeast. “This location is a central hub for our customers coming from all over the nation and is a larger facility that will help us accommodate the horses and our customers.” The sale will take place on Friday, August 9th with the preview beginning at 2:00 PM MST and the sale at 6:00 PM MST.
The sale will feature 45 horses with a majority of the offering by Fulton Ranch stallions A Streak of Fling, CS Flashlight, and A Dash Ta Streak. “Our draw has always been our riding two-year olds that are well started and ready to go in any direction you want to take them,” said Lisa. Her and her late husband, Brian Fulton started this program based on their desire to raise the horses that Brian couldn’t find while he was on the rodeo road. They found that in A Streak of Fling in October of 2003. “We knew he could produce the kind of horses that Brian would like to ride.”
The Fulton program has since produced very diversified, athletic horses that have achieved championships in several disciplines – from barrel racing to steer wrestling, team roping, calf roping, reined cow horse, and Quarter Horse racing. “We were looking for confirmation, mind, and speed, and we have proven that these horses have all of that and more,” said Lisa.
“We are evolving and I keep carefully researching the best program I can put together. I learned about horsemanship, confirmation, and how to pick out a good horse from Brian and I continue to get a lot of advice from key people that walk me through my ideas and steer me in the direction I need to go. But you can’t beat life experience to teach you, either. From marketing to time management to knowing what I like and what other people like.”
This year’s sale has bloodlines for every discipline. A Streak of Fling and CS Flashlight sired two-year olds make up over 25 head of the offering, but Fulton’s also have the largest ever showing of A Dash Ta Streak two-year olds with over 8 head and counting. These include several exciting prospects brought in from outside consignors.
Two full siblings out of A Streak of Fling x Give Me A Wink (Doc O Dynamite) are headliners of the sale this year. Give Me A Wink is a standout barrel racing mare who was a 2007 NFR Qualifier, California Circuit Champion, and Cheyenne Shortgo Champion, among other winnings. Give Me A Fling, a 2017 Bay Roan Stud, is an exciting stallion prospect and his full sister, Giveawinktostreaker, a 2017 Bay Filly, offers top genetics for a performance horse or breeding investment.
Fulton Ranch broodmare Queen Fa Tima (Dash Ta Fame) has always produced top sellers and has two sons on the sale this year. Flingin Corona, a 2017 Sorrel Gelding, is sired by A Streak of Fling and is a full brother to proven performers, Streakin Queenie (LTE +$65,000 – owned by Shoppa Ranch) and Streakin Ta Corona (LTE $40,000 – owned by Corny & Maria Wiebe). A Dash Ta Corona, a 2017 Sorrel Gelding, is the first son of A Dash Ta Streak x Queen Fa Tima to sell.
Another top bloodline is a 2017 Bay Roan Filly, A Easy Streak (A Streak of Fling x Easy April Whiskey by Paddys Irish Whiskey). Easy April Whiskey was a top calf roping performer for Jake Fulton and has since been a huge part of Fulton’s broodmare program. Easy April Whiskey’s dam, Easy April Lena (Doc O Dynamite), has produced Streakin Easy April (LTE $250,000+ and NFR Qualifier) and Lenas Last Streaker (LTE $25,000+) who carried Sydney Adamson to the 2018 Nebraska High School Rodeo Reserve Barrel Racing year-end championship.
