TRU BLU TEXAN

True Blu Texan possess the great " Blue Valentine" blood. History has shown "Blue Valentines" are hardy, low maintenance horses. they are sure footed with lots of stamina and big forward movement. They excel as Ropers, Reiners and Barrel Racers, but can be used anywhere from the performance arena to the outback country of Australia. Blue Valentine passed on his speed, great bone, gentle disposition, longevity and cow savy. He was renowned for his explosiveness and power coming out the chute allowing for a quick result in the roping arena. For more information visit the stallion page.

Designer Gene Program Feedback

The quality of mares on offer are beyond what a 'general' person [such as myself] could ever afford, such as the lovely imported mare on your website boasting some of America's top pleasure lines ...... It takes time, dedication and commitment to select these quality mares and then to allow clients to breed to their preferred stallion ..... it's fantastic!
In all honesty, how many times have people seen a foal and thought, if I had that mare / stallion I would have used a different mare / stallion! I know I have!
I also like the 'involvement' of being able to select the mare / sire .... even though you are not 'breeding' the foal it gives the client a feeling of being part of the process to create your next champion!
These are only my opinions..... but I would be interested in hearing what other horse people thought about "designer programs' as well :)
Congrats on being a leader in the breeding industry Coliban!
Katrina Lewis, Northern NSW.

About Us

Coliban Quarter Horses in Western Australia, known for importing stallions "Three Solid Bars" and "Tru Blu Texan" took another bold step and imported two mares in foal to the great American sire "Zippos Mr Goodbar". "Zippos Mr Goodbar" is the leading sire of western pleasure and performance horses in the USA and features prominently in the pedigree of many world champions. The first mare, "Call for Zippo", arrived in 2006 and foaled a beautiful sorrel filly aptly named "Coliban Good Asset". The second mare "Miss Plentiful Bars" an own daughter of "The Ole Man" arrived in 2007 and recently produced another beautiful filly named "Coliban Plenty Good". It was a timed arrival for the now 20 year old mare, and the stud will make good use of these rare "old-time bloodlines".

"Three Solid Bars" is a purpose line-bred stallion whose "Three Bar" pedigree is renown for its versatility and speed. The versatility attribute has been in steady decline over the years, as more and more breeders concentrate on breeding for specific arena disciplines such as cutting or reining. The infusion of these dwindling qualities has seen an increase of bone and height in "Three Solid Bars" offspring, as well as producing the potential for increased athleticism, soundness and the ability to cross discipline boundaries.

Progeny by "Three Solid Bars" has won halter competitions in open company. A recently started 2 year old filly purchased by Jayes Park in Victoria has received glowing comments from the resident stud trainer David Pearce. David was quick to report that the filly showed a willing mind, calm disposition, and though young is displaying wonderful balance under saddle. these attributes are consistent with a horse that will succeed in the performance horse arena in the future.

"Tru Blu Texan" (Blu) a superb looking Blue Roan stallion is the first of his kind to make it to our shores. He is a  line-bred "Blue Valentine" stud whose bloodlines permeate champions across all ranch type disciplines. "Blue Valentine" himself became a household name on the rodeo circuit as a stallion, who not only possessed speed and size, but had the ability to compete and win in a variety of disciplines from barrel racing to calf roping. As a sire he possessed a pre-disposition to produce foals with outstanding temperaments, trainability and that all important overall physical soundness.

Blu carries bloodlines that provide a complete outcross for Australian Quarter Horse breeders, and genetic experts have always known the value of hybrid vigour presenting in the next generation.

Coliban Quarter Horses have also bred their American resident mare "Sheeza Fast Kid", a line-bred "Easy Jet" mare, to "Dash For Perks", a son of the immortal :Dash For Cash". this is an exciting opportunity for the stud to import bloodlines that dominate the Quarter Horse Racing scene in the USA. Sadly, Quarter Horse Racing almost dissappeared from the resume of Australian Quarter Horses, but the resilience and efforts of many breeders and enthusiasts, has seen a resurgence of popularity here and the sport looks set to emerge from it's near obscurity.
