DBR LEO SPLASH BAR, my 10 year old Reg. Sabino APHA mare we
raised, this girl is smart, she will flex with me with nothing on her, leg cues,
side passes, and when you say whoa you best be ready.  Gorgeous mare,
BTW the babies chewed her tail, otherwise it would be almost to the ground
Here is a shot of a silver gorgeous grulla we had, barn name TAZZY, Reg.
AQHA grulla foundation bred, oh he was flat out bred and gorgeous, We
have had so many grullas and he I would say was the knockout of the
bunch, he was to stay but the last minute a person said they wanted to
purchase him, then after 4 months asked me if I wanted to buy him back
they wanted something older to start on team penning and stuff, PEOPLE,
you know young horses are not ready so please don't do this, he was
important to me, and I let him go, so be sure.
Here is an awesome picture of Zipin Fancy Bonanza, our loud APHA
BREEDERS TRUST ENROLLED overo gelding we raised, he is 10 now. We
sponsered a young lady at kirkwood equestrian Center, in cedar rapids,
Iowa with him, this is where this picture was taken, and she took him
through almost 3 months of schooling in her classes with him, Melissa also
bought an awesome bay roan yearling from us, she took on to reining with
her, Melissa was a very special young lady with a lot of talent with horses.
She took the bay filly she purchased from us and did all the work to start,
lots of talent that young lady had, then of course the guy stage came along
and she had to go off to college and decided to sell Brie the bay roan.
Here is Too Too, my Registered APHA OVERO, 21 year
old sorrel overo paint gelding, 1 of our personal
GELDINGS, I have had since a 4 year old, he has been the
best riding partner all these years, wish we could roll back
time, he is still doing good, Fancy Bonanza bred, we love
that breeding, thanks for the years. He has his own page
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 4 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.
Unless someone absolutely wants to purchase before winter time, we usually don't do, but last xmas, we sold 2 for a
xmas present to people we already had sold 5 to, it was a xmas present, we know the folks. We had a buckskin stud
colt this year we sold so fast, she 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, quiet and he is super built with a gorgeous head
We are located 2 hours NORTHEAST of DesMoines, Iowa, by Waverly, Iowa where the big draft horse sale is held twice a
year.  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.  We
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.  In summer we are busy busy, so outside alot. 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
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.
Above is my mare, AQHA, DBR ZIPS GOLDEN LADY, with her buckskin
colt, who was bred to my friend Tims, Golden gorgeous stallion, SKIPA ST
GOLD, look what she had, another stud colt this year, 3 in a row now,
buckskin and gorgeous, they always have the nice dispositions, but this colts
pedigree will be awesome with peppy and skipper.  Skipper is proudly owned by
Tim of Decorah, Iowa.  This stud colt was sold the minute he hit the ground,
who could blame anyone! Picture June 20th, 2017, his dam is in the above pic
with her head turned. Peppy the mares barn name is flat out gorgeous with a
DISPOSITION OF GOLD herself, she craves attention.  Congrats new owner,
no outside breeding on this stallion, bred to same mares yearly.
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.

ground work on them, she spends all her time with them, thanks sharon!
Our 3 fillies are out of the same skipper w sire as these we always use of our
friends. All 4 foals this year are out of him, with the exception of the red
dun tobiano filly on 2017 foals page, sire is pictured there!
Rhapsody my yearling I let go
this year, she is a dunalino and
I have her full sister foaled this
year in May, looks like gonna
do the same thing, start out red
dun and turn to a
palomino/dunalino, time will
tell when she gets about 3
months old.  Rhaps was a reg.
AQHA skipper w bred and
otoe poco bueno, I hated to let
her go, boy can these foals out
of these mares and same paly
sire ever turn fast and cut fast.
1 of my favorite dunalinos,
sold this year, she was drop
dead gorgeous, very dark.
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 couple 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, 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 speed events, depends on their
breeding, also Trail riding.  We like our horses to have good bone, nice hipped and baby
doll heads, strong legs. above all, an AWESOME DISPOSITION!  Most important.
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 and we are going to have to go back to contracts and have it in
writing, so they stand behind their words, 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,
$100 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.  Thankyou

Below is AQHA Grulla FILLY, DBR BLACKBURN SHINES, registration pending. I
have been working with this filly, she has the shoulder barring, dorsal goes right into her
tail with her guard hairs, leg barring, ear barring, also mottling on her upper legs.  
Foaled March 22nd, 2017, she isn't a big girl yet for her age.  We are feeding her good
grain/hay and wormed her.  I have her picking her up her feet, she is stalled and I let
her out to exercise till she gets use to being weaned.  Shiner her barn name will be for
sale at some point and time, along with my other foals.  Sire is 5 panel N/N.
These 2 pictures were taken August 8th, 2017, and are in our indoor arena, so color is a
bit darker.  We have had so many grullas and also had her half sister we have pictures of,
back in 2012.  
DBR BLACKBURN SHINES, 2017 March foaled AQHA Grulla filly, pending
registration.  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 8, 2017 also, soon outside. HER
This is the half sister to Shiner to the left, who is just 5
months, same sire, different dams.  This is her half sister
when a year old, so she is more mature, but as you can see
she was gorgeous  too.  We did sell Shiners half sister 3
years ago, our pasture was 5 grullas, very colorful~!
