Above is Monica left at our home, July 2018, the blanket on the couch on the
back is our 3 dogs couch! My ankle is still not healed to ride, as of July 18th,
now injections, I am bumming not riding, but will be working the weanlings
soon when weaned.  My joy!  The 3 dogs get mad when we leave and so that is
their old  blanket they chewed, on their OWN couch, sorry about that!  To the
right is remembering Copper, Arlin and Copper, Arlins TWH gelding, he was
the most gorgeous, most loving, TWH gelding you could have, Arlin and
copper were inseperable, his papers had all grandchampions on them, but
more then anything copper anyone could just climb all over, he was 16-2 and
we still miss him, your main riders cannot be replaced, we try, but it just
doesn't happen. Arlin rides buck, his buckskin we have had along time now,
but still not copper, as my new horse is not ToFancy to beleive, my paint.
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 deposit.
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.
you are not in the position to feed any horse, please don't purchase one, anyones, it isn't the cost of the horse that cost, it is
the feeding of them, that means good quality hay/grain/supplements if needed.  Pasture is really good if you have enough.  We
have seen too many people buy, neglect, and let them starve, that is never needed, no reason, PLEASE REMEMBER
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 2018, 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
 If you don't have a good minded disposition on any horse, you have nothing. I don't let these weanlings go till
2019 spring, I enjoy them so much, When we say worked with, they are worked with on a daily basis, even  spending 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. that is why we are very picky to what homes they end up in.  
All our foals are not just turned out, I am constantly working with them daily, after weaned, teaching them their halter, leading,
having hooves trimmed, at a very young age, tying, and patience. By their yearling year, they are so worked with, hard work to
introduce them to their new owners,
WE ARE PICKY, reason to be!  We have 4 foals coming weanlings, this year, 2018.  We
always have very nice well bred weanlings, but more importantly their DISPOSITION is #1. Arlin has been riding our new 4 year
old APPALOOSA Sweets, he is a flashy boy under saddle and has a good mind on him. My bones in my ankle are still healing
from being broke, so I can't ride until completely healed, BUMMER big time!  Happy trails to you all with your equine friends.
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. THANKYOU!!!
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
WE want to reccomend RANDY KUKER if you need a
awesome farrier in IOWA/MINNESOTA and other
areas, he takes his time, he does it right, and comes
when the appt. is made.  He has helped two of our
horses very much.  One would be gone if not for him.  
His number is
563-422-2065, ask for Randy, took us a
long time to find a excellent farrier like him, that keeps
up learning on corrective shoeing/trimming, you always
learn no matter what it comes to.  Plus he has the best
knowledge to from Ray Lagel.  Thanks Randy. so much
