"We bought a stud colt/barrel prospect from Shannon. We are located in California and had never met Shannon. We basically told him what we were looking for and he picked us out a colt. We put our trust and money on the line without even seeing the horse or meeting Shannon in person. He made the buying transaction so easy, and he is so helpful and very knowledgeable when it comes to bloodlines. He even went so far as to bring the horse to Nevada to meet us. We love the horse we got from Colt 45 Ranch and Shannon Pearce. He had not been handled a lot when we got him. But he has since taken to being handled and worked like a duck takes to water. He is by far everything and more Shannon said he was. We can't wait to see what the future holds for this prospect! We couldn't be happier with our horse. Actually we are so pleased with him that we are in the process of buying his younger half-sister from Colt 45 Ranch."

"I am an avid Team Roper and have purchased several horses from Shannon, and he knows the traits of each individual horse and can direct you to find exactly what you are looking for. Shannon has been spot on with all recommendations on my Roping Horses, he knows their abilities both physical and mental. I have hauled my horses to rope and train with several of the Top Pros in Texas and they all comment on the quality of my horses, they are mentally sound and possess all of the physical abilities to perform a the highest level. Shannon has a special gift of combining families of horses to produce the very best!"
"I bought a 2010 filly out of Bunk House 045 and Golden Girl 045. She steals the eyes of all the people who see her. She's not going to be a big horse but she's very cowy, very confident, learns quick and doesn't shy at much. She has a beautiful, long comfortable stride. No regrets getting that horse."
"I have known Shannon for almost 25 years and have purchased several horses from him over the years. The quality of Shannon's horses in their lineage, personality and athletic ability is beyond belief. These horses excel in working cattle but also have the talent to barrel race, rodeo or trail ride.I also believe it is important to mention the honesty and integrity of Shannon Pearce. I know some people are reluctant to trust horse traders. Shannon is NOT a trader. He is a horse breeder and is the best at combining the bloodlines to make a good horse. I have continued to return to Shannon as a customer and know he will be honest about the horse and the money. His animals are world class."
"I first met Shannon Pearce over 30 years ago when I was looking for good all-around horses. His horses all had great minds and confirmation, but most importantly, they had good bones, legs, hoofs and speed. Shannon knows what it takes to be a good using horse. I've used his breeding for a long time to gather cattle on big spreads. I have ridden and seen lots of different horses and I will say, Shannon's choice of horses is the best that I have seen. He has acquired some of the best horse genetics available."
"I have known Shannon Pearce since the 1970s. He has the best understanding of horse pedigrees of anyone I know. There are few bands of horses anywhere with better bloodlines than the horses Shannon raises.He is honest and can be trusted in what he says and recommends. I have owned several horses which Shannon bred and I have enjoyed each one."
