The 2018 Fulton Family Performance Horse & Production Sale is Friday, August 17, 2018 at the Cherry County Fairgrounds in Valentine, Nebraska! Fulton Ranch has made their mark on the performance horse industry with this annual sale and their ranch stallions, A Streak Of Fling, CS Flashlight, and A Dash Ta Streak. The sale will feature 20 riding two-year olds, 8 weanlings, and 5 broodmares from the Fulton program, as well as several others from their guest consignors.
This year’s offering will feature some extremely special prospects that represent the best bloodlines in the industry, including these two-year-olds.
A Whiskey Fling (A Streak of Fling x Easy April Whiskey, Paddys Irish Whiskey)
’16 Red Roan Mare
Flashs April Whiskey (CS Flashlight x Easy April Whiskey, Paddys Irish Whiskey) ’16 Gray Mare
This mare line is one of Fulton Ranch’s most treasured. 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 $20,000+). There are several broodmares in the Fulton program out of Easy April Lena, as well as a 2002 Palomino Stallion, Frenchmans Easy Doc, who is owned by 88 Ranch Performance Horses.
“She truly loves her job and you can see it with her grit and heart.” Kellie Collier, rider of Streakin Easy April (owned by Kathleen Collier), commented in Barrel Racing Report in October of 2017.
“She runs fast, turns her barrels very square and is very easy to ride. She is kind, humble and always willing to give 110%.” says Sam Flannery, trainer of Lenas Last Streaker (owned by Deloris & Sydney Adamson).
Flingin Flash (CS Flashlight x KR Flingin Bugs, A Streak of Fling) ’16 Brown Gelding
This gelding is an outstanding cross of Fulton Ranch’s most proven lines. CS Flashlight (SI 106) is a proven performance horse sire and his get excel in the rodeo arena and on the track. His dam, KR Flingin Bugs, is a full sister to KR Last Fling (LTE $125,000+) and was raised by the Krebs Ranch in Gordon, NE. They not only raise superior Angus cattle but also superior Quarter Horses. Chris & Cathy Hughes of Sulphur, OK bought this mare on the 2008 Fulton sale as a yearling and gave this embryo to Brian Fulton before he passed in 2015.
“KR Last Fling is the kind of horse that changes your life. I will compare every other horse to her for the rest of my life. With her discipline, focus, and ability, she could have easily been a stand out in any event!” comments Ashley Schafer, trainer and jockey (owned by Joe and Carla Spitz).
