Above is Monica left at our home, with cowboy our 5 year old blue merle aussie, nov.2018, and Arlin right on his buckskin gelding Jos Dandy
Investment, he has owned for 13 years, My website unfortunately I took down, I was going to quit doing it, we had alot of things going on last year
and this year, with my folks, so I did erase everything, but my husband talked me back into putting it back up, which is work, Plus now my 2 bones
in my left ankle are broke, so gonna be a while to heal.  Just ticks me off!!!!  WE had to retire TOFANCY TO BELEIVE this year, he is 22, he has
been  my main trustworthy, Mr. Fancy bonanza bred overo paint Reg. APHA. for the last 18 years, never will replace him, Too Too his barn name
is a awesome horse, and still here and live out his life with us, but after 18 years, it is hard to replace him with another horse to ride.  That is why
we have the appy now, we have 2 others I could ride, but can't keep up with and want to have just one I really ride all the time.  Fortunately my 3
yearlings sold within days of advertising and a nice lady that already purchased wrote and bought blue onyx, we were SO HAPPY.  
We are located 2 hours NORTHEAST of DesMoines, Iowa, by Waverly, Iowa where the big draft horse sale is held twice a
 We have a indoor riding arena, 66 x 144 and our other barn is 45 x 63.  Stalls in both.  When we do sell our
weanlings/yearlings we do require a DEPOSIT of half down, nonrefundable, and coggins is up to the new owners to pay,
which entails a health paper too, and if you want a vet check, that is your bill too, We will not hold a horse without a
We have the right of refusal to any buyer if we think it is not a good home. You can reach us at 319-404-3814, ask
for Monica or Arlin, and leave a message please. All shipping is up to the buyers, we do require box stalls, on our youngsters.
Calling is best, leave a message, some of our emails do not get through to us.  WE are honest and expect the same
COURTESY from you, we will never sell any sick horse, our horses get the best of care, farrier, shots, and any other
unexpected medical problems that may come up.  We hope they go to the same kind of home, we know once they leave they
are no longer in our hands. As always we just always pray they go to good working/loving homes and treated as we have.
This is the inside of our indoor arena, it is 66 wide by 144 long, we have stalls down at the other end.
We have another nice barn 45 x 63 with stalls and alot of room for the horses to run in and out of as
they please, with alot of FANS!!!!! they appreciate it!  Always comes in handy. Although we enjoy
riding outside more then anything, training comes in handy in the indoor arena, and in cold weather
and rain.  The best still is the sun on our faces and & just enjoy the peacefullness of RIDING.

Above is our place, to the left is our 45 x 63 barn, and in the background our indoor arena, 66 wide by 144 long and then
our ranch home, our 8 goot high fence and driveway gates around our whole property, Pastures go all the way around the
back of the indoor arena and wraps like a U all the way around, and we have it cross fenced.  Been cutting trees again, if
you want trees don't have horses, as we had tons of trees, we have done a lot of work, you can't fence around every tree!
Arlin and Monica WELCOME you to Desibar Ranch. WE have had horses our whole lives, We have our own private riding
geldings, and also a few mares, and foals.  We do not sell broke horses, only weanlings/yearlings, as I enjoy teaching them
through out the winter, and by time spring comes, our then yearlings are so gentle, and we have a lot of repeat buyers and also
alot of REFERRALS. Our vet does our vaccinations, and they were done the 2nd of June 2017, we give 5 way, West Nile, and
Rabies, Also wormed on a time schedule.  Farrier work always done every 6 weeks.  We always believe in starting the foals
hands on, everything, main thing we believe is first of all an excellent DISPOSITION/conformation and color.  Too many
folks make the mistake of just picking for color, that is not the way to go. WE have sold to
France, Canada, Minnesota,
Missouri,  Mississippi, Nebraska, New Jersey, Connecticut, Vermont, Texas, Wisconsin, Iowa, North Carolina, West Virginia,
Ohio, Florida, New Mexico, Arizona, Pennsylvania, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Alabama, South Dakota, North Dakota, Alaska
and more, we are proud.
We do have a indoor riding arena if you want to see the prospects movement, we do NOT do videos
on weanlings!  We believe highly in an all around horse,  Although some with their breeding can go on to do show, ranch
versatility. We like our horses to have good bone, nice hipped, and baby doll heads, strong legs. short backed, above all, an
AWESOME DISPOSITION!  If you don't have a good minded disposition on any horse, you have nothing. I don't let these
weanlings go till 2018 spring, I enjoy them so much, When we say worked with, they are worked with on a daily basis, even
through winter, and our winters are not that nice, but we have our indoor arena to mess around with them.  After this spring,
we are centering on our trained riding horses, so we can enjoy riding, and enjoy life instead of all the work with the foals. Plus,
my parents are older, and life is harder now, they need us too.  We definitely need to spend more time riding our horses, we
raised, and they to, are now getting older fast, time flys.  Our 2017 Foals that I kept back all winter, got sold fast, this year,
2018, and we are pleased with all 3 homes, already updates, miss them all.  We like to be treated with HONESTY, as we
ALWAYS are with our buyers, and repeat buyers.  All our foals are not just turned out, and not worked with,W
e want to
thank all the friends we made and buyers of our weanlings/yearlings the last 14 years, I am taking my website down, and just
centering on our riding horses, I broke some bones in my ankle and it really wrecked summer, so THANKS to EVERYONE!
Above is Jos Dandy Investment, (buck) Arlins Buckskin gelding we have had for 13 years, he is a very pretty
gelding, done a bit of everything, we enjoy the horses so much and when the babies are weaned I take over, I
adore them.  ONE THING WHEN I SELL THEM I ALWAYS SAY  first buyers right to purchase right, well
lately that has not been happening  it is sad that people can't be more honest about things, but they put
themselves in that spot!    WE use to NEVER charge board either on the  weanlings/yearlings when sold, but
like everyone else, we guess it is time,
as people are taking advantage and leaving them here, so after the
money is put down, you have 2 weeks, and after that, $75 a month will be charged, to board, once deposit is
put down,
if anything happens to the horse, it is the buyers responsibility to pay for any vet bills incurred.
Shall the horse die, beyond anyones control, money will be returned.  We do take into consideration some
shippers are back logged, and we require a box stall for our horses to travel in with shippers now. Coggins will
be between 80 and 100 dollars, which is health papers and coggins.  WE always keep our horses farrier work
up to date, and shots when time.  Worming always. Our horses are always taken care of, with the utmost of
care, and any and everything done, if they get hurt or circumstances beyond our control, our vet is out.  Our
horses present, and past, have been part of our family, so remember that please.  We are with our horses,
daily, they are always use to us around them. All of our equine friends we have had through the years, were
always part of our family, no matter when they leave and go on, and the new owners some have taken into
reining, team penning, general ranch work and just trail riding, they all have very good PEDIGREES along
with awesome dispositions. Color added bonus.
 NOTICE: Please noone under 18, please don't write or call
and waste our time, unless your parents are the ones calling.  Calling is the best also, at times emails do not
come through, and PLEASE read the entire ad, BEFORE CALLING, Serious inquiries only.
DBR BLACKBURN SHINES, 2017 March foaled AQHA Grulla filly, Registered AQHA.  We had her half sister back
in 2012, when another person owned her sire, then he sold her sire 2 years ago. This pic was taken April 8th, 2018  HER
ON HER!!!!  This girl IS gorgeous, friendly as ever, bred well and conformation is perfect on this fancy filly.
Fancy would
follow me and we would take walks without her halter in her pasture, when we got to the bottom she would run back to the
barn and wait at the barn for me.  You are very much missed, my girl. Fancy is  SOLD now,  April 28th, 2018.

Above is our large indoor arena, 66 wide by 144 long, with skylights and new stalls, we mounted
huge industrial fans above so when you ride it stays cool, it does anyway, but we have two electric
overhead doors on each end, so the air just blows through, we really enjoy it, especially in winter
and when it rains, it is a huge help, and I work the foals in there, the first month when weaned. It is a
lot of fun with the babies when weaned to mess with them in there, teach them & watch do silly stuff
