NMSU Keepvon Truckin is a beautiful, smooth moving bay stallion that was acquired from New Mexico State University's Equine Program. He has great bone, big hip and is bred full of  talent.  Sired by Von Reminic, NRHA Futurity High Money Winning Reining Horse, and a grandson of NRHA Million Dollar Sire Reminic.  His extended pedigree has such greats as Doc Bar, Jewel’s Leo Bars, Doc O’ Lena, Sugar Bars, Rey Jay and Christy Jay.  NMSU Keepvon Truckin was destined to be another great reining, cutting horse, but due to an injury, ‘Truck’ was retired from the competitive arena to be used solely for breeding.

The Lauings have given their 5 beautiful children the opportunity to learn & compete with  Keith Pazour & wife Erin, Scott Pazour & wife Sarah, Dan Pazour & wife Tessa, Kaylie & husband Aaron Sterud and Shean Lauing & his wife Kimberly. As their family grows, they now have the pleasure to do the same for their grandchildren. Denny and Doris believe their strong family values & faith have allowed them to grow into what they are today.
