X2D RANCHES is owned and operated by the Shumpert family of Ault, Colorado, with pastures in Colorado (Berthoud to Briggsdale), Wyoming (Buford to Pine Bluffs) and Opheim, Montana.
Thanks for stoppin' by the site, and we invite you to check out our program. One of our main goals is to preserve the bloodlines of the great Lucky Blanton (California Rodeo Salinas Hall of Fame rope/race horse and sire). Blanton horses combine size, durabilty, and speed, have kid-friendly dispositions, proven pro rodeo ability and make superior ranch horses.
We outcross on other top roping, barrel racing and ranching lines including Driftwood, Frostys Tops (NFR heading horse and producer of over $3 million in PRCA/WPRA/AQHA winning horses), Blue Light Ike (AQHA, USTRC, PRCA rope horse and junior rodeo/kid horse extraordinare) and legendary cowhorse blood such as Hey Houston (Smart Chic Olena/Doc Tari), a top AQHA/NCHA/NRCHA/NRHA roping, reining and cow horse and World's Greatest Horseman contender.
Thanks for visiting, God bless, and happy trails!
PLEASE NOTICE: Due to AQHA standards for paperwork and the naming of each horse, our brand will look like this, "XtwoD" on all AQHA paperwork. It is pronounced X2D, but we had to comprise since we cannot use numbers. On our website, we will be using "X2D" as the prefix on all of our horses. Thanks!
