Back in 1997 the Angel Ranch breeding program was just beginning. Mr Rebel Bonanza (Beau as we called him) was purchased from the Arapahoe Ranch based in Thermopolis Wyoming. It was Memorial Day weekend when he was purchased, Beau was 5 years old at the time and had never been haltered, but Terry got him broke to ride and took him elk hunting in October of that year! He was an amazing horse! His confirmation was magnificent and we knew this would be a starting point for our breeding program. As we review his parentage, his great grandfather “Beau Bonanza” was an AQHA world Champion Halter horse. His father “Coys Bonanza “speaks for himself with Halter Championships and for starting in the racing arena, check him out in the Legends books! Needless to Beau has given us some of the most conformationally correct, good natured, strong brood mares around. We lost Beau in 2009, he was out to pasture and we found him deceased, struck by lightning. His last 2 foals were born in the spring of 2010.
