Lazy Six Nine Ranch...Goes Big or Goes Home (as seen in Today's Horse Magazine)

Our magnificent Mack is in the Today’s Horse 2019 Breeder’s Edition! We are truly honored that Maegan McPherson wrote about Mack and us. It covers a bit of who we are and a bit about our plans for our half/draft breeding program. This dream of ours has been a long one that was finally set in motion in early 2018. We are so excited for the future as our first round of colts are born this coming spring! We also have a few more surprises up our sleeve too, which makes everything that much more meaningful. Thank you for a wonderful article, Maegan!!

The Lazy Six Nine Ranch

Goes BIG or Goes HOME

By: Maegan McPherson

Shane, Cheyenne, and their son Stone Wilson are fifth generation

ranchers, residing on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, and have been

ranching there since 2005. Cheyenne and Stone are enrolled members of the

Oglala Lakota Sioux tribe. They run a cow/calf operation and they also began a

half-draft breeding program this past summer.

“We fell in love with half-drafts back in 2006 when we purchased our first

one, Shark,” stated Cheyenne. “Since then we’ve added quite a few to our herd.

Nothing compares to them in terms of bone, heartiness, stamina, and overall

attitude (in our humble opinion). We enjoy them so much that when the

opportunity presented itself we dove in head first, and went big with 25 head of

AQHA registered mares and a registered Percheron stud. We are so excited to

see this dream unfold, as our first foals arrive in the spring of 2019.”

Shane and Cheyenne met at the Bison Bar in Miles City, Montana. “I was

working and he was playing. He was quite outgoing and told me loudly that I was

pretty. I had a habit of never dating anyone from the Bar, but I made an

exception for him and about 2 months later we went on our first date. He cooked

supper for me. Beef, of course. Even though we couldn’t eat the meat (that’s a

funny story for another day and has no reflection on his cooking abilities) I fell for

him. We’ve been together ever since. We have been together almost 14 years,

and married for 12 of those years.”

Their son Stone, was born in the late summer of 2008. Cheyenne claims
