|Shippy Rodeo Bulls began in 1996 when Randy purchased a purebred Limousine bull calf for a practice bull.
After bucking the calf, later named #S4 Ruby Red, Randy knew he was one of a kind. Ruby was bucked in the
practice pen until he was 3 years old. At that time Randy was injured riding bulls, and decided it was time to start
raising and hauling bucking bulls.
He purchased a handful of bulls and started hauling them to open bull ridings in 1998. In 1999, Randy purchased
his SDRA & NRCA contracting cards and Ruby and two other bulls were chosen to go to both of these finals.
Also, in the fall of '99, Randy purchased nine head of yearling plummer bulls from Ronnie Roach. One being a
maternal half brother to the legendary herd sire Spook, this bull is known as #938 Baby Brother. 007 Secret
Agent, 77 Stone Cold, & 28 Livewire were also on this set.
On May 27, 2000, Randy & Jennie were married on her parents ranch in WY. In 2000 things came together
for Shippy Rodeo Bulls when #S4 Ruby Red was chosen to go on the PBR circuit. Ruby was unrode in the PBR,
throwing off JW Hart, Cody Hart, Tater Porter, Ross Coleman, & Danny Varnadore. He was also selected as
the Mossy Oak Shootout Bull in Grand Rapids, MI.
In the fall of 2000, #S4 Ruby Red broke and dislocated his front knee before the PBR finals, which he was
selected for. Despite his injury, he still made Cody Lambert's Top ten list of rankest bulls in 2000. #S4 Ruby
Red is still breeding cows, and his up and coming prospects show just as much promise as he did.
In the spring of 2001 the first plummer cross calves hit the ground out of #S4 Ruby Red and Chili Pepper
daughters. These calves are now being hauled and sold all across the country. "The next 3 years of crosses
have proved even better and so has the success the Lord has given us." We have raised some awesome
buckers and great cows.
Some of the bulls that have stood out include: S44 Superstitious-a 2000 son of Ruby Red, was sold to Okelley
out of Illinios. He was hauled to the PBR finals in 2004 and then sold for $25,000 to Berger and Riken. Okelley
also bought S45 Devils Tower and he has been hauled to the PBR's and was sold for $15,000 to Gene Owen.
We've also sold calves to many other people as far west as California and as far east as Virginia. They are all
We have purchased several herd sires in the past few years that will prove to be very beneficial to our program.
805 Kung Fu Kid (a son of the famous cow CP1 Kung Fu and 224 Spook). 805's first calf crop hit the ground in
spring of 2005. In April of 2005 we purchased two sons of 161 White Sports Coat. With one being a full brother
to Houdini. We are excited about crossing these 2 bulls on our herd. There first calves hit the ground in 2006.
We purchased 798 Electric Avenue in early 2007. He is a son of 224 Spook X CP 0.
In the fall of 2007, we purchased another great bred bull. 581 Notorious was bought from Anchor Bull Co. He is
another son of 224 Spook X CP 10 (White Sport Coat's Dam) 581 will be crossed on our S4 Ruby Red and 770
Double Shot heifers.
The Lord has blessed us with one of our greatest accomplishments in 2004. We purchased a 3 year old, #13
Unhappy Gilmore (aka Big Deal), from Dibbet's out of Iowa. He proved to be a great bucker and was sold for a
awesome $65,000. He later went on and won the 2004 ABBI Classic Championship for $108,000. We do have
semen for sale from him.
We did have a big disappointment is 2004, and that was the lost of one of our great bulls. In July, during a
thunderstorm, 007 Secret Agent was hit by lightning and killed. Although he is gone, he has produced two great
We had two great classic bulls in 2005. One is a yellow baldy bull, #23 Like Mike. He is a 1/2 brother to the
world champion derby bull, #13. The other is #S29 Broke Leg, a black and white bull by #28 Livewire. They
have both been bucking well and placed 7th & 13th at 2005 ABBI Finals in Las Vegas. We have bred with
Broke Leg for several years and in 2012 we retired Like Mike and bred with him also.
007 sons have shown us great promise also. Every one of his sons buck! We sold two of his sons to TX for
$27,500 a piece. We have met some great people throughout the years and been blessed to have many great
partners on our bulls. We had our first production sale in 2008 and hope to have another one every year.
We have used a few of our great buckers to cross back into our program, including Cloud King and Thunder
Down Under. Their calves look very promising.
We invite you all to stop in and visit and look at the cattle if you are ever in the area!
