2008 filly by Plenty Coup Hancock
(sold) 2008 blue roan filly sired by Plenty Coup Hancock

      The first thing you may notice when you visit Gary Tarver's herds is their uniformity and consistent quality. There isn't a bottom end in these horses. I don't think there is another herd in the Hancock industry with this much line-breeding, predictability, powerful type & quality in every horse.

Thanks for stopping by!

(Note from Weblackey) For those of you who don't know me, Donna Grace, I do websites for a few HancockHorses.com clients. I have bred and sold and exported horses all over the world for decades, and started a horse registry in 1999. Gary Tarver in Wyoming is a great Hancock Horse breeder who met me through our site HancockHorses.com, and asked me about helping him market his horses. Gary is a very honest, modest, old-school rancher & horseman, who values his privacy, and has no computer or internet access, and isn't interested in getting any. He is not interested in having a website (he did not ask me to make this website, so I haven't attempted to be overly creative in Gary's website design, I just used a version of my own site to save time). I created this site for my own convenience ~ and hopefully yours too, since he has such great Hancock Horses hidden away down there. I try to visit Gary every year, and keep current photos of his sale horses posted here.

Gary's sale horses are available at stand-alone prices, or package discount prices; call Gary (phone number below) for price quotes. All will be AQHA registered or eligible. Gary sells mares either "guaranteed bred", or "exposed." He does not include a registered foal in an exposed mare's price, unless he sells her as guaranteed bred (so get that all worked out before any mare sales are made).
