Welcome to Flying M Paints and thank you for visiting our site.
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. His offspring seem to have good minds and are coming along nicely.
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 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. A new addition is a 65×120 indoor riding arena with staging area! I am quickly running out of excuses for not riding more!!
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.
Our new friend Lee Kromschroeder painted these two pieces, which were both sold during the Russell Art Auction week in Great Falls in March, 2016. He does fantastic, realistic work and I was honored that he chose my horses to represent his equine-based body of work. The palomino is Toby, my old gelding, and was completed during a 4-hour Art In Action, with hundreds of people milling around watching him and the other artists complete their pieces, which were then sold (Toby sold for $4000!!!); the other is our deceased stallion Duke, running with his daughter.
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 served as Secretary for 13 years. We are also members of Montana Paint Horse Club, where Gail is Webmaster and Past President. And President – again (5 years running!). 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
