Onyx is a beauty & Friendly.  IF we

the price will be up there, she is worth
it all, and more, she is just coming 2

Above is Monica left at our home, with cowboy our 4 year old blue merle aussie, nov.2017, 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
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. 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. As always we just always pray they go to good working/loving homes and treated as we have.
This is the inside of our indoor arena, it is 66 wide by 144 long, we have stalls down
at the other end. 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 indoor arena, and in cold weather and rain.  The best
still is the sun on our faces and & just enjoy the peacefullness of RIDING.
This is the inside of our indoor arena, it is 66 wide by 144 long,   We have another

more comfortable.
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, Indiana, 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 ALL AROUND
Versatility, depends on their breeding, also Trail riding.  We like our horses to have good bone, nice hipped, and baby doll
heads, strong legs. 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 older, 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  
already had hooves trimmed, by our farrier at 4 months, & trimmed Nov. 20th, 2017 also! Easier 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. Snow is here, dec, 28th, UNFORTUNATELY!  Horses are getting super wooly now.
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!  Nov. 27th, 2017 pic, This girl has so filled
out, she is a BEAUTY for sure.  Plus she is a tall girl, laid back. 1 of the sweetest fillies we

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!!!!

she is done being weaned.  She picks up things really quick, Her registered name is above with
new/more pics, up above, click on the red dun TOBIANO, she has her own page, with dam pics,

She is 5 panel N/N across the boards.  She will mature into quite the
flashy filly with DISPOSITION/COLOR and PEDIGREE PLUS. Pictures taken
August 30, 2017.
Picture of Chex, taken Aug. 30th, 2017, BAY DUN, LOOK at his muscular neck! GORGEOUS head. Chex will be 3 soon this
year and ready for his trainer!  Now he will have to work. He is bred colonel freckles, freckles playboy, king fritz, and this boy

Splash and Zippy having a conversation
while eating, Sept. 1st, 2017, these two were
raised together.  Although now we are
haying them, so dry, no grass!  Fall has
arrived, and so will the temperatures!
Blue Roan Yr. Onyx, Bay dun 2 yr. old, both AQHA, Zippy and Splash both APHA all Reg.
Reg. True BLUE roan, she has
the whole package! She has a big
price if she DOES sells, serious.
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.
high 90's in two, of the
foundation associations,
disposition plus. Anxious
to see what she throws
since she was a true
looking grulla till 7, she
did not change as a baby
at all, period.  We don't
care, she still is the same
April, just gray now!
Will be for sale in 2018, this nice AQHA
foundation bred grulla filly, in your
pocket/worked with on a daily basis, hooves
already trimmed, no WHITE on this grulla filly,
pedigree plus, certainly has the DISPOSITION
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. It is a
lot of fun with the babies when weaned to mess with them in there, teach them & watch do silly stuff

that.  If you want someone who is patient with

November 7th,
by our vet Al VanArkle,
did the best and ALWAYS
MUST.  This colt is already

had it done, we so enjoy Al
and his work.  Also other
vets under him too we use.

you, you treat our horses
with patience, makes all the
difference. So we now got

take care of them always.
Well 2018 is here and slowly spring will come back and we will be busy, hopefully sooner then later!
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.
