Our first Wilbur-Cruce Spanish Barb horse was a very special Birthday present back in 1995 from our special friends Steve & Janie Dobrott. A two year old stallion named Onate, born in 1994. Beautiful black stallion which later became a gelding. Onate ran with our other quarter horses on the ranch east of Rodeo, New Mexico. My son Adam began training him at 4 years old. In 2009 we moved our herd to Socorro, TX at my son Adam’s and daughter-in-law Threasa’s little homestead ranch, and they have all lived here ever since. Onate left us in 2019 at age 24. He is still missed.
