The open, windswept country between Melstone, Montana and the Missouri Breaks north of Winnett, Montana is cow country and is best traveled horseback. It takes a special type of horse to pack a man and work a cow on this range and for years folks thereabout knew the very best came from Bob Shelhamer and Bub Nunn.Nunn says he was “wanting a Hancock horse pretty bad” when he went to a Jayne Harris horse sale in Recluse, Wyoming in 1985. A stranger approached him and pointed at one big roan weanling. “That’s the only stud colt ever saved out of Roan Prairie,” the man said. “I picked up Cheyenne on Roan Prairie and he was the best pickup horse I ever rode.” The colt had been consigned to the sale by noted breeder Roy Cleveland and was named “High Rolling Roany.”
Bub Nunn had his Hancock horse.

Quarter Horse History as Reported by Larry Thornton. High Rolling Roany

Apr 12, 2013 by

Your Working Horse Magazine is honored to feature the articles Written by the famous quarter Horse Chronicler, Larry Thornton.

Our soon to be Published May-June edition will feature another of Larry Thornton’s articles. This one focuses on the big, beautiful Stallion, High Rollin Roany

The following are some excerpts of the history written as only Larry Thornton can:

As we look at the history of the quarter horse, we see that this has been going on for a long time. We have seen success breed success with legendary breeders like Hank Wiescamp, Warren Shoemaker and Coke Roberds.
Coke Roberds started it with his use of, and success with horses like Old Fred, Peter McCue and King Plaudit, the thoroughbred. Then Warren Shoemaker built his breeding program around these famous and successful horses. He used his stallions Nick, Gold Mount and Nugget McCue S that all carried the blood of the Coke Roberds horses.

Then we see that many of the foundation horses of Roberds and Shoemaker were very prominent in the Wiescamp bred horses. Horses like Nick Shoemaker, Skipper W, Miss Helen, Santa Maria and so on down the line have ties to these two great breeders. These breeders were taking what was successful and perpetuating it and even making it better.

We are seeing a similar scenario with the blood of a ranch stallion named High Rolling Roany. We see his offspring and descendants in several ranch breeding programs. They include the Gene and Jan Hetletved of Hetletved Quarter Horses, Ray Beecher; Quentin Taylor and the Cowboy Confluence of Lynne Taylor and John Moore. These breeders have seen this line of horses do their duty as ranch and rodeo horses, and they like what they have seen. So they have implemented this line into their breeding programs finding that success can breed success.

High Rolling Roany was a stallion that seems to have come out of nowhere to be the foundation sire for Bub and Nona Nunn of Miles City, Montana.

The story of Bub Nunn and High Rolling Roany has a modest beginning. Here is what he recently told me, “Jayne Harris of Gillette, Wyoming was having a quarter horse sale. They were mostly Hancock’s and I was wanting to get more Hancock into my horses. So I went down to the sale. She was selling mostly baby colts with a few mare and colt pairs.”

He continued, “I bought what I thought would be the best stud prospects. I bought one colt with its mother and I bought two singles and one of the singles was this big ole colt, High Rolling Roany.”

“Roany caught your eye right away. He was in a pen of stud colts and he would stand alone all the time. He was a little bigger than the rest of the colts and he would stay off in the corner by himself. I had already bought two others and so when he came in the ring, I bought him thinking that out of the three I might get a stud of some kind.”

Bub continued with what happened next, “When I sold my ranch, I had to sell most of my stock, but I kept my mares and this big yearling. We had moved here to Miles City. A fella over at Harden was going to calve some 800 first calf heifers and I helped him. I had just started riding the big colt. So I took him with me and I rode him at least every other day and I could see he was really picking things up.”

“Then I bred him to my mares. When I got that first crop of colts, I knew I had something pretty good. They all looked alike and they all acted like Roany,” noted Bub talking about the kind of colt his new stud was siring.

Red Man
      Red Man was without a doubt, one of the best sons of the great Joe Hancock. He was foaled in 1935 at the Burnett Ranches in a West Texas blizzard. The resulting frostbite cropped about 2/3 of his ears off. Byrne James, a professional baseball player for the New York Giants, purchased him as a yearling and took him to his ranch near Encinal, Texas. Red Man was ridden by James Kenny as a three-year old and then sold to Balis Harris and spent the next few years taking him and other great ropers of the time to the pay window, including Ike Rude, Troy Fort and Buckshot Sorrels, to name a few. Sorrels won the calf roping at Cheyenne Frontier Days on Red Man in 1943.
Some of Red Man's most famous get include: Wampus Kitty, Worryman, John Red, Johnny Cake, all with racing ROM's and track records to their credit; Apache Agent, racing ROM, futurity and handicap winner, who outran Mr. Bar None, World Champion running stallion; Booger Red with NCHA earnings of $51,324; Lady Hur, NCHA money earner and open performance ROM; Red Wood Man, open performance ROM; Cibecue Roan, open performance ROM and 1965 High Point Steer Roping Stallion. Red Man's 125 AQHA registered get accumulated 119 halter and performance points, 20 race or performance ROM's, over $85,400 in earnings plus an enormous unknown amount in arena earnings. Among the last dozen of registered foals Red Man was to sire, Blue Valentine would establish a ranch and arena horse legacy in his own right.    

Red Man is one of the greatest Sires of Cow Horses in history as well as stakes winners on the race track.
red man sired many great horses, including Blue Valentine, Booger Red and Apache Agent.
Inducted into the NCHA Hall of Fame.


King, often known as King P-234 (1932–1958) was an outstanding early Quarter Horse stallion who influenced the breed throughout the early years of the American Quarter Horse Association (or AQHA).
