Best Green Horse!
    Who has bought a young horse and started it on their own? That's the one I want to watch and see how it turns out. Anyone can buy a started horse! We really enjoy seeing a teamster lead a colt to the trailer and being there years later to see it step back out as a athlete and watching it develop. It is really enjoyable watching the teamster work.

Yes that is a true teamster they are fading away. We all know you need two that work together. That means you have to go shopping sometimes. Seems like it's gotten to be like truck and tractor pulling the best sponsored usually gets the fame and trophy. I've seen some excellent teamsters step back to the shadows to put their families first college,sicknesses or whatever. A lot of fun times and memories you teamsters share with many!

I can't say I have reached the highest level of success, but the team I am taking to Denver is a horse I started 3 years ago and a 5 year old I started this summer. I have a Facebook page where I post videos and pictures of training, including working in the field and logging. I am also training a green horsepuller in my 9 year old daughter and there are some videos of that process. You might want to check it out.

Truth be known: well for the record Josh Wickum did not raise Duke and Junker, in fact both horses were born, raised and broke in Minnesota. Junker was raised by John Kerr from Zumbrota, MN, and Duke was raised by Bill, Lisa and Jordan Hanson from Chatfield, MN aka Duke's registered name in Belgian Corp. - B & L Hanson's Lynette's Duke. Dave Sibley also from Zumbrota, MN is the gentleman that owned the stallion that both the mares were bred to. Dave later purchased the Duke horse from the Hanson's as a weanling colt, where he used him for a stallion until a 5 year old, Dave also purchased Junker from John Kerr as a yearling or two year old and had them both broke at the Amish (Rudy Schwartz & Daniel Gingerich) in St. Charles/Utica, MN area. Josh acquired Duke from Dave Sibley as six year old and he acquired Junker as a four year old, Josh then started them in the pulling circuit: Junker as a five year old and Duke started pulling as a six year old, where don't get me wrong, they are one heck of a pair of horses!!!! But just thought credit should be given where credit due, Dave Sibley has been known to raise some good pulling bred horses, and he had the expenses of feeding and breaking these two powerful geldings, and take that gamble not knowing what they would turn out to be and what they are today, Josh just maybe put the finishing touch on them !

Carl I agree with you Josh has done a great job with Duke and Junker. To add a little history to Duke he was only at the Amish getting broke for a week or so then he got a wire cut and brought back I believe Josh worked him a couple winters before he purchased him and Junker was raised by Tim Earnhardt not John Kerr. I personally would have called them barely broke by someone else keep up the good work Josh

I'm gonna go out on a limb here being I have a few ties with some of the afore mentioned folks. Yes, both horses were born and raised in MN. Dave bought Duke from the Hanson's as a 5 month old weanling colt. Dave bought Junker from Tim Earnhart as a 6 month old weanling colt. Yes, Dave owned the sire to both colts and the Hanson's and Tim owned the respective dam's of each colt. Tim and Dave are friends,(neighbors at the time), and continue to raise their horses at the same site. Jon Kerr has never lived in Zumbrota or owned a horse. Dave named Junker after Jon Kerr (his nickname), not because he was a junk horse but because of their jet black hair and tiny "gray" patch. Yes, Dave brought Junker to the Amish (Rudy Schwartz) along with his 3/4 sister to get broke, they were there 6 weeks. Duke was started and finished by Josh. As Dave has always stated, Josh made those horses into what they are today. He is very proud of those horses and all the others he and Josh have raised and broke together in their long standing partnership. Referring back to the original question of who has bought a young horse and started it on their own? Duke, Josh and Dave fit this criteria.
Sincerely,
Heather Sibley Kerr
(Dave's daughter, Jon's wife and Josh's friend).

Thanks Heather for the clarification and sorry Tim - know who you are, names mixed up Our apologies
And not pissed or meaning to bash anyone .... we are not that kind of people
Josh and his boys have done a great job with Duke & Junker and continue to do so, Dave should be very proud !! Raising horses can get very expensive and as we know they all don't turn out
simply indicating he did not raise them, there is a difference
