Summertime Fun at Bonina!

By August 9, 2023What's New?

$35K Non-Pro Champions


June 1 -4 kicked off the summer with four days of outstanding cutting at Bonina! There was a Friday night dance, Saturday night speaker and buckles and bags to the winners!

The gang at Ukiah Cutting Campout


Away from civilization, in a big mountain meadow, it was endless cutting, quiet camping and great food! We practiced without pressure and had unlimited cattle. Our hosts, Dick Levy and Anne Coote are the best!

It was fun to tune up High School Cutters en route to National Finals in Wyoming. These talented kids are well-mounted, have a great attitude about their expectations and appreciate this opportunity.


The most appreciated implement at Bonina is a new, huge water truck! Dust has been a problem! Blame it on dry weather, too much traffic, playful cattle or expect it because it’s a ranch, the reality is that dust causes lots of issues. This enormous water-spraying machine is tamping down the dust on the roads and in the pens. Horses, cattle and people are much happier.

Bonina Elite Treats Joint Support


The latest addition to our nutrition line – a power packed pelleted treat for joint comfort. Bob made the formula some time ago. I found it and with help from Dr. Mike Mehren, sourced the ingredients and a manufacturing facility. The treats are a tremendous hit with the horses! They love them! And, they’re getting glucosamine, chondroitin and MSM in every bite! When the dose is doubled, they’re therapeutic!

“Cutting horses need the keenness to think and respond, the strength and speed to stop and turn and the intelligence and ability to break down a cow. This ability calls on every system in a horse’s body. For a horse to perform at its peak, feed the entire system. Feed OXY-EQUINE ENHANCED…it doesn’t leave anything important out of his diet!”  – Denton Moffat, DVM
