We are excited to announce a new stallion to the farm,
Cross Bar Orion Bug. We are excited to have found Orie! He is a 2009,
14.3h, AQHA, sable champagne stallion. E/e, At/a, n/Ch.
negative. Orie is eligible for registration with the FQHA. He came back at
over 85%. He is a great grandson of Cooke County ETC and the sire of two
foals we purchased earlier this year. Orie came to Texas from Canada when
he was 3.5yrs old. He has about 4 months under saddle. His 2014 foal crop
with Tonkawa Hill Quarter Horses was 100% champagne. Orie has a fabulous
disposition. He got my attention when I first visited Tonkawa Hill Quarter
Horses. He was playing with the foals like our late stallion WW Tinkas Toy
used to. His foals are all people oriented like our Cooke and Tinka foals.
They are in your pocket, quiet and easy to work with. There has been lots
of interest in Orie's foals from overseas buyers. We expect there will be
at least one overseas soon.
Orie is very smart and willing even when the mares are around. I hope to
show Orie in 2015 but he is under no time schedule. I want him to progress
at his own pace. We will be breeding some of our Cooke daughters to him in
2015 and will stand him to a limited number of outside mares in 2015. A
big thank you to Tonkawa Hill Quarter Horses for your work in making this
happen. You can see several of Orie’s ’14 foals on their facebook page. I
think there are still a few for sale.
Orie came off a large working ranch in Canada. Orie’s sire, Cooke County
Classic, was fatally injured in a pasture accident at a young age. Cooke
County Classic was sired by a champagne son of Cooke County Etc, Sugar
Cooke. Sugar Cooke is a working ranch/roping horse in Canada, and also a
grandson of Leo Tolo (ROM Performance, Race Money Earner). Other well-known foundation QH greats and performers on Orie's pedigree
include AQHA Hall of Famer/World Champion Sire Leo, World
Champion/Superior Halter Sire The Ole Man (SI=100, ROM Performance, Race
Winnings=$21,156), AQHA Champion/ROM Performance McLeo Bars (SI=85, 16
Halter points, 12 Performance points), Otoe Maiden (SI=95, ROM
Performance, Race Money Earner), and Lady Gann (SI=95, Race Money Earner,
3 Halter points).
Orie’s dam is Canyons Classy Bug. Her sire is Classy Sugar Doc, is an own
son of Superior Performance Reining stallion Scotto Dee Bar (60.0
Performance Points, NCHA Earnings of $1,132, and Sire of ROM Performance
and NCHA/NRHA Money Earning Offspring), who is by Superior Halter and
Performance/AQHA Champion Doc's Dee Bar (170.0 Halter and 273.0
Performance Points, and Sire of Supreme Champion, World/Reserve World
Champion, Superior Halter and Performance, and AQHA Champion Offspring).
Classy Sugar Doc also has on his papers AQHA Hall of Fame stallion Doc Bar
(36.0 Halter Points, and Sire of Offspring earning 6 World Championships,
more than $3.2 Million in NCHA Winnings, and 8,894 total AQHA Points) as
well as the legendary Hall of Famer Sugar Bars (Speed Index = 95, 7 wins,
$3,166 Race Winnings, and 2.0 Halter Points).
Canyons Classy Bug was out of Miss Canyon Bug who was by Mr Bug Wimpy. His

the year '93, '94, '95, and '96. Canadian Cowboys Association finals
qualifier '94, '95, and '96. Inducted into the Manitoba Rodeo Cowboy
