Welcome to Flying M Paints and thank you for visiting our site.
We raise Paint horses, both tobianos and overos; with around five foals each year. We are very sad to announce that Duke has died. He had a heart attack and boom, was gone. We will really miss his sweet disposition – he was so easy to get along with and be around, that you could very readily forget he was a stallion.
Spinnin At The Bar – Introducing our new stallion, Spinnin At The Bar! Double Homozygous Black & White Tobiano Stallion. This beautiful young stallion has awesome color, and an awesome pedigree including Pepsi Poco, Q Ton Ace H, Joe Queen and more! His sire is a 16 hand, 1300# foundation bred homozygous tobiano black and white stallion. His dam is a fabulous producer with amazing bloodlines that include the best of foundation AQHA and APHA breeding. He is broke to ride, is extremely athletic, a willing learner and is very intelligent. He has already bred a few of our mares for 2013.
We also breed to outside stallions occasionally. While our horses do not specialize in any specific venue or category, we prefer to raise all-around useful, intelligent, friendly animals.
We have lots of potential 2013 babies coming, including from Spinner, although I don’t preg test, so…..
We were highly honored when my friend, Doug Miller, an artist from Washington, chose some of our horses as subjects for his painting “Hay Buffet”, winner of both the Peoples Choice Award and Artists Choice Award at the 2011 Western Heritage Art Show in Great Falls, Montana. Pictured are Six R Sonny Fleet (deceased), her daughter Maya Norfleet, and Shiloh Tyree (daughter of Ima Tyrees Peach).
You can find extended pedigrees on all our horses on www.AllBreedPedigree.com
Our facilities include a 4-stall barn, a 3-horse foaling barn with pipe corrals and field, eight 100′ long pipe corrals with shelters, a hay shed with attached pipe corral sporting a 30-foot covered feed trough – plenty of room to belly up to the bar, fields ranging from five to thirty acres, a 100×185′ pipe arena and 2 round pens.
At the right is a small study painted by Karen Boylan of a couple of our 2011 foals. They were born two days apart, and utterly unrelated, but I challenge you to tell them apart! Thank goodness one of them had a spot of white on one hind foot! In addition to Karen offering prints, she also has this picture available as notecards.
While we are not a public boarding facility in any sense of the word, we will consider taking in a few carefully selected horses and their peeps, from time to time.
We are members of Rocky Mountain Breeders Association, where Gail is currently (12 years and running) serving as Secretary. We are also members of Montana Paint Horse Club, where Gail is Webmaster and Past President. And President – again. Gail is also a national APHA Director, representing Montana.
The “Flying” in our name reflects Bob long-time interest in flying small airplanes. To yield to his interests, we also have a grass airstrip and hangar where he keeps his Kitfox (unless it happens to have my horses’ hay in it instead!).
Thanks for dropping by; Bob and Gail Morris
