How D Barleo is a home raised gelding. We foaled him in April of 2011. We own both the mare and stud. They are both on site. He has quiet and calm disposition. He is the horse that will come find you in the pasture for a little attention. When he was about 6 weeks old we rode his mare in a parade ponied him from his mare. He should mature be 14.3 He halter broke to lead, trailer load and unload, stands for the farrier, picks up his feet, enjoys grooming, has been bathed, takes wormer with out fuss.
How D Barleo is sired by Poco Nico Bars (see his pedigree description below) and out of Dun Up in Trouble. On his dam's pedigree you will find Mr Poco Straw going back to Bar P Straw and Bar Pistol, The New Yorker, Benito Bar Misty, The Continental, Dandy Bar Money, Justabout Roman, How D Roman, Tee Jay Roman, Three Bars, Bruce's Charge.

Mk Farms -
Our mission is raise quality registered horses that are a joy to handle and be around. We firmly believe that a horse's disposition is combination of genetics and learned behavior. It also our belief that learned behaviors from the foal's mare and human interaction at a young age dramatically influences a foal's developing disposition.
In our breeding program you find disposition of the mare to be a primary concern due the fact that we believe that a foal will learn much from their mare starting at day one. (All of our mares are broke to ride.)
Second, you'll find that during the first weeks of the foals life, there is nearly daily interaction between us and the mare with her foal at her side. This allows the foal to learn by example. During this time we introduce the foal to a halter and lead rope. This allows the foal to begin learning the most basic of skills without removing the foal from the safety the foal feels when it is near its mother.
We have found the early interactions described above have created exceptional results and laid the ground work for foal with a disposition is quick to trust, enjoys to be around people, and is also enjoyable to be around.
We currently own one stud, Poco Nico Bars.
Poco Nico Bars (aka Chip) is bred for disposition and work. He is a Palamino color but has dorsal stripe so he is registered Red Dun. He is foundation bred and is registered with the Foundation Quarter Horse Registry. His pedigree includes Sonny Dee Bar, Eternal Sun, San Saba Lady, Coed's Son, Sugar Bars, Three Bars, Barleo, and Wimpy's Pistol.
