About me:
I am Donna Grace; I descend from a gritty old homesteader family. I raised 2 daughters that are the salt of the earth, who I love with all my heart - they are my greatest acheivement. I have been in agriculture all my life. I have been an AI tech since I was a kid; and have raised registered cattle and horses off and on my whole life. In my hayday I ranched over 6500 acres on the Crow Indian Reservation, running a working guest cattle ranch with grain & hay farming, commercial and registered beef cattle herds, working stock dogs and a 100+ range horse breeding operation. There we raised our own ranch horses, which included fancy roan Hancock Quarter Horses, and Curly ranch horses that were hypoallergenic stockhorses (that traced mostly to old foundation Quarter Horse bloodlines).

These days things are much quieter... I live in a secluded little cabin near Shepherd and Roundup, Montana. I own & run a livestock, horse, pet and LTL ("less than a load" or piecemeal freight) hauling business. My pickup truck and stocktrailer are very modest; I do not make a splashy fancy impression. But my rig is well maintained, and in tip top running condition, thanks to Sterrin's boyfriend, Erik! He is the son of a master mechanic, and keeps my truck in elite roadworthy condition at all times! My cargo and I run safe and confident with this rig. I mostly run the western corridor. Since family resides in MT, AZ and TN, I will always look for the opportunity to make runs between those states. Visit my Cowgirl Dispatch page on Facebook, and contact me here or there any time about hauling.

I still own one mare, Lynx Warrior Wind (pictured below), the last & best kept from all my best, bred to one of my favorite stallions (standing at Promised-Land-Ranch, WA, owned by Rep Joel Kretz and family). and closely related to our best Hancock stallion we lost to cougars in Oregon).

I hope to again one day own a sequel to my lovely, loyal registered merle Border Collie that will have her same rare discernment: The well balanced (Abingdon BC bred) biddable capability to work stylish & soft enough for sheep, but with the confidence, power & bite needed for cattle. She will be like my last BBC bred Ruby (pictured to the right), who I still miss so much. My passion for fine high-end working Border Collies has long been surpassed by my accomplished sister, Paula & her hubby Steven, of Shady Acres Farm, near Duck River, Tennessee.

I hope some of my websites brings you some enjoyment, entertainment or enlightenment - and in some small way helps you do the right things for the right reasons. That is what life is all about to me. Be honest, be ethical, do your best, and in all the ways that matter, you will have abundance; you will prosper.


I used to have a substantial Curly Horse breeding program;
right now I am working on a Warrior Horse Preservation project

until I can get back into the horse business in a larger way.

Here is the article about us, Michelle Thompson (Heritage Hancock Quarter Horses, Alberta) and I, about our partnership website, HancockHorses.com -- featured in April 2008 AQHA members' America's Horse Magazine (distribution: over 311,000 to all 50 states, Canada and 70 countries). The article was written and submitted to AQHA by author John Moore (see below) of Miles City MT.

John Moore, Brett Badgett and Wally Badgett

John Moore, Brett Badgett and Wally Badgett from the DVD "Houlihan," released May 2008 by J&S Productions. "Houlihan" is the fourth in a series of documentaries on cowboys and horsemanship. The first three were "Tapadero," "Remuda" and "Hola Paniolo." "The 'Houlihan' production was filmed in northern Wyoming and much of Montana. Locally it is available at Miles City Saddlery. You will have to check in your area or order through their website or by phone. I think this is a pretty good film," says John. John is the author of the April article about HancockHorses.com in the AQHA membership magazine, Americas Horse. John is the author of a couple thousand articles and eight books including the award-winning novel The Breaking of Ezra Riley. Brett's artwork is displayed in fine galleries and his bronze, "Laying the Trip," is featured on the grounds of the ProRodeo Hall of Fame. Wally, a former NFR bullrider, is the creator of the cowboy cartoon "Earl."

"Thank you John, for such a super job with the outstanding article in America's Horse about HancockHorses.com! And thanks for all the emails & letters we have received from Americas Horse and HancockHorses.com readers! Please keep them coming, write us any time, we love to hear from you!"  ~ Michelle Thompson & Donna G Vickery.

And here was our last good riding ranch mare:
