Above is Monica left at our home, and Arlin right on his buckskin gelding Jos Dandy Investment, he has owned for 12
years, My website unfortunately I took down, I was going to quit doing it, we had alot of things going on last year and
this year, with my folks, so I did erase everything, but my husband talked me back into putting it back up, which is
work, I lost everything, so it slowly but surely is coming back up, we do have 3 foals, but I am keeping them through
the winter, to work with and it helps keep your mind off other things, therapy, so by the time spring rolls around they
are big baby dolls, in your pocket, and not only that, their dispositions are awesome, bred, and color color color. We
had a buckskin stud colt this year sold so fast, he is sold, out of my mare, DBR ZIPS GOLDEN LADY, on the MARE
page.  But I always keep my site UTD so keep browsing around.  I am taking a 2 year old next year as a 3 year old to
have trained, he is a bay dun on here, peppy san badger and colonel freckles, freckles playboy, king fritz, Continental
and so much more awesome breeding, DISPOSITION quiet and he is super built with a gorgeous head, also may take
blue onyx, depends on how big she is, she will be a big beautiful blue roan mare, surely filling out now and long
mane/tail.  We have 7 main horses, and we WILL center on them next year and not babies. WE could have sold Chex
our bay dun so many times, he not only is super laid back, his conformation is flawless, why we kept him back.  Blue
roan is the same, but only a year and a half, till a 2 year old next year in 2018, although she looks older with her build
We are located 2 hours NORTHEAST of DesMoines, Iowa, by Waverly, Iowa where the big draft horse sale is held twice a
 We have a indoor riding arena, 66 x 144 and our other barn is 45 x 63.  Stalls in both.  When we do sell our
weanlings/yearlings we do require a DEPOSIT of half down nonrefundable, and coggins is up to the new owners to pay, which
entails a health paper too, and if you want a vet check, that is your bill too, We will not hold a horse without a deposit.  
have the right of refusal to any buyer if we think it is not a good home.
You can reach us at 319-404-3814, ask for Monica or
Arlin and leave a message please. All shipping is up to the buyers, we do require box stalls, on our youngsters. Calling is best,
leave a message, some of our emails do not get through to us.  WE are honest and expect the same COURTESY from you, we
will never sell any sick horse, our horses get the best of care, farrier, shots, and any other unexpected medical problems that
may come up.  We hope they go to the same kind of home, we know once they leave they are no longer in our hands.
This is the inside of our indoor arena, it is 66 wide by 144 long, we have stalls down
at the other end, above industrial fans so when you ride you stay cool and I work the
young ones alot in there as weanlings. 2 overhead electric doors We have another
nice barn 45 x 63 with stalls and alot of room for the horses to run in and out of as
they please, with alot of FANS!!!!! they appreciate it!  Always comes in handy.
Although we enjoy riding outside more then anything, training comes in handy in the
arena, and in cold weather and rain.  The best still is the sun on our faces and smiling

2017, they are so cute, first time
meeting. Pharoah has two eyed
red buck, and skips artist on
his papers, he is bred well and
doing awesome in N.J. with
Jesse training him!  Thanks so
much Jesse. He is loving the
new family dog  and gorgeous
golden Pharoah.  Keep the pics
coming, we like when people
always send updated pics,we
enjoy seeing how they mature!
Above is our place, to the left is our 45 x 63 barn, and in the background our indoor arena, 66 wide by 144 long and then
our ranch home, our 8 goot high fence and driveway gates around our whole property, Pastures go all the way around the
back of the indoor arena and wraps like a U all the way around, and we have it cross fenced.  Been cutting trees again, if
you want trees don't have horses, as we had tons of trees, we have done a lot of work, you can't fence around every tree!
Arlin and Monica WELCOME you to Desibar Ranch. WE have had horses our whole lives, We have our own private riding
geldings, and also a few mares, and foals.  We do not sell broke horses, only weanlings/yearlings, as I enjoy teaching them
through out the winter
, and by time spring comes, our then yearlings are so gentle, and we have a lot of repeat buyers and
also alot of referrals. Our vet does our vaccinations
, and they were done the 2nd of June this year, we give 5 way, West Nile,
and Rabies, Also wormed on a time schedule.  Farrier work always done every 6 weeks.  We always believe in starting the
foals hands on, everything, main thing we believe is first of all an excellent DISPOSITION/conformation and color.  Too
many folks make the mistake of just picking for color, that is not the way to go. WE have sold to
France, Canada, Minnesota,
Missouri,  Mississippi, Nebraska, New Jersey, Connecticut, Vermont, Texas, Wisconsin, Iowa, North Carolina, West Virginia,
Ohio, Florida, New Mexico, Arizona, Pennsylvania, Georgia, Illinois, Alabama, South Dakota, North Dakota, Alaska and
more, we are proud.
We do have a indoor riding arena if you want to see the prospects movement, we do NOT do videos on
weanlings!  We believe highly in an all around horse, some are bred for reining, ranch work, or A
LL AROUND Versatility,
depends on their breeding, also Trail riding.  We like our horses to have good bone, nice hipped
, and baby doll heads, strong
short backed, above all, an AWESOME DISPOSITION!  If you don't have a good minded disposition on any horse, you
have nothing.   I don't let these weanlings go till 2018 spring, I enjoy them so much,
When we say worked with, they are
worked with on a daily basis, even through winter, and our winters are not that nice, but we have our indoor arena to mess
around with them.  After next spring, we are centering on our trained riding horses, so we can enjoy riding, and enjoy life
instead of all the work with the foals. Plus my parents are old
er and life is harder now, they need us too.  We definitely need
to spend more time riding our horses, we raised, and
they to, are now getting older fast, time flys.  Our 2017 Foals were
already trimmed, by our farrier at 4 months, starting them early, makes it so much easier for them
, then fighting with them
when older.  We like to be treated with HONESTY, as we ALWAYS are with our buyers, and repeat buyers.  Our 2017
weanlings as of november 2017 are all doing fine,
and growing by leaps and bounds, but then we feed them well, and ALSO
taken care of
the best, and worked with.  Won't be long and snow will fall, UNFORTUNATELY!  None yet as of end of Nov!
Above is Jos Dandy Investment, (buck) Arlins Buckskin gelding we have had for 12 years, he is a very
pretty gelding, done a bit of everything, we enjoy the horses so much and when the babies are weaned I take
over, I adore them.  ONE THING WHEN I SELL THEM I ALWAYS SAY  first buyers right to purchase
right, well lately that has not been happening  it is sad that people can't be more honest about things, but
they put themselves in that spot!  Picture taken July 14th, 2017.  Been so hot here whole summer so far, can
hardly ride, in our indoor arena, yes with all the fans, but we like to take them out.  WE use to NEVER
charge board either on the  weanlings/yearlings when sold, but like everyone else, we guess it is time, as
people are taking advantage and leaving them here, so after the money is put down, you have 2 weeks, and
after that, $75 a month will be charged, to board, once deposit is put down, if anything happens to the horse,
it is the buyers responsibility to pay for any vet bills incurred. Shall the horse die, beyond anyones control,
money will be returned.  We do take into consideration some shippers are back logged, and we require a box
stall for our horses to travel in with shippers now. Coggins will be between 80 and 100 dollars, which is health
papers and coggins.  WE always keep our horses farrier work up to date, and shots when time.  Worming
always. Our horses are always taken care of, with the utmost of care, and any and everything done, if they
get hurt or circumstances beyond our control, our vet is out.  Our horses present, and past, have been part of
our family, so remember that please.  We are with our horses, daily, they are always use to us around them.
All of our equine friends we have had through the years, were always part of our family, no matter when they
leave and go on, and the new owners some have taken into reining, team penning, general ranch work and
just trail riding, they all have very good PEDIGREES along with awesome dispositions. Color added bonus
The four musketeers ran back from the pasture to get water, we were out
riding, July 25th, 2017 and they saw us come back, greeting us home!
Above is blue onyx, our registered TRUE BLUE ROAN
AQHA yearling filly.  We have not changed her color yet on
her papers, it is clear she is a true blue and not a bay, really
don't care, we know what she is! If we breed her we will
change her color.  She is such a sweetheart, she was watching
the crop dusting plane which I hate go over, she heard it every
time it came, this girl has that awesome disposition,
conformation and of course that blue color black head!  SHE is
NOT FOR SALE!  July 31st, 2017 pic This girl has so filled
out, she is a BEAUTY for sure.  Plus she is a tall girl, laid back.

DBR BLACKBURN SHINES, 2017 March foaled AQHA Grulla filly, Registered AQHA.  We had her half sister back in
2012, when another person owned her sire, then he sold her sire 2 years ago. This pic was taken August 23, 2017  HER
SIRE IS A REG. AQHA DUN STUD, dam is a REG. BLACK AQHA MARE. sire 5 Panel N/N, she is finally outside and
shedding out a dark slate grulla/all the dun factor, she will be a looker and is sweet. NO WHITE AT ALL ON HER!!!!
This is the half sister, ABOVE, to Fancy to the left, who is
just 5 months, same sire, different dams.    Different
people own the sire now, to FANCY, our weanling.  We did
sell Fancys half sister, 3 years ago, we had quite a few
nicely dispositioned AQHA grullas, which is number one
importance, then, of course different grulla colors as they
go from a light silver to a slate. AQHA usually picks if they
are grulla, since many people don't know what a TRUE one
is, we sent all our pictures in, let them register her and she
is grulla, we knew but so many people register and not
grulla.  We are getting more and more grullas registered
now in the US, as they were so rare to begin with, now they
have a larger number, as so many people want them. Just
always remember DISPOSITION number one in a horse,
don't just go for COLOR, otherwise you
might just have a
gorgeous colored equine friend but not with a outstanding
disposition, really makes all the difference
Above is our gorgeous 2017 Registered APHA red dun overo stud colt.  He is one looker,

while, not just a week after weaned, time and lots of it, makes for a great foundation for
their next homes,
HOPEFULLY GOOD HOMES! We strive for that always & forever.

Above is POCO BLACKBURN APRIL, a mare I raised till over 3, and had her broke out and broke well, sold her for 4500,
believe it or not she was grulla, all the dun factor whole nine yards
, till a 7 year old, she is in 3 foundation associations, bred
well, we are letting Tim Thuente of Decorah use her for breeding as she has Blackburn/prettybuck breeding among other, the
main thing to us is she is gorgeous, DISPOSITION PLUS, dog gentle, I could do anything with her.  But tim was only having 3
mares left, so asked if he wanted to breed her and another of ours, DBR PEPPYS GOLDEN GAL, she is gorgeous and thrown a
chestnut, then two buckskins. Of course he had to transfer the mares into his name, since he does all stud reports, takes care of
them, but does get the foals out of them too. But they do come back to us when entirely finished breeding, which is fine with us,
as they will throw some awesome foals for him.  Peppy
, the mare, is on the broodmare page, she changes with the seasons
buckskin, but a gorgeous, sweet dispositioned girl too, pedigree full of OTOE/zippo pat bars/pinebars among other greats, she
has that pedigree for sure!!! She was foaled 2004, and so well broke, but sat 5 years, and what a waste, at another persons house,
when I could have been riding and keeping her going, really sad it all happened, SHE SHOULD HAVE BEEN BACK HERE.
When Arlin and I had april broke, she was so laid back, trainer had her spinning even with sliders and she could move, not that I
wanted that, he enjoyed that.  Anyway now she has all that behind her
, got hurt over at this other persons house. Frustrating
high % in all 3
foundations Associations.

this picture was
taken October 4th, 2017. We
finally got over an inch of rain we needed
badly so his hooves are muddy! All our
horses, weanlings to, are trimmed on a
schedule, Wormed, shots when of age.
Above is our large indoor arena, 66 wide by 144 long, with skylights and new stalls, we mounted
huge industrial fans above so when you ride it stays cool, it does anyway, but we have two electric
overhead doors on each end, so the air just blows through, we really enjoy it, especially in winter
and when it rains, it is a huge help, and I work the foals in there, the first month when weaned.
Above is a new picture of Chex, Oct.4th, 2017, reg. name is DBR

Scotch, here in the picture,

by our vet Al VanArkle,
did the best and ALWAYS

with patience, makes all the
difference. So we now got
scotch gelded for whoever
purchases him next year,

do it all, you own them you
take care of them always.
Happy thanksgiving to all our past/present buyers and all our friends and to our
families, we hope all you stay happy and healthy, don't forget your prayers!
That is the same Poco Blackburn April above, I purchased her in 2004 when she was born, this pic is when I had her at the trainers, 3 yrs old.  yes
same horse, her sire was put down grulla and dam was dun/buckskin, sire died or a heart attack and then both sire and mare had their colors
changed on the papers!  Just amazing though how she switched and it didn't happen till about 7 years old, very very sweet mare she is, branded also
Scotch is now a gelding!  Our vet gelded him on November 7th,
2017, makes it so much easier when younger on them, he came
through with flying colors, a very very classy show prospect.
