About Us


We entered the Arabian industry in 1984 with passion and admiration. After a 20 year sabbatical, we have jumped back into all of it. Today, Kim and I operate Rose City Arabians (our 3rd ranch in 32 years) and it has become a lifestyle that we love and love to share with family and friends.  We are grateful for our daughters, Jessica and Erica and our grandchildren, Riley Bodenner, Olive Johnson and Ezra Johnson. Sunday family dinners every Sunday at the ranch are precious!

My wife fell in love with the idea of acquiring some of the most exquisite Arabian mares in the world as our Rose City foundation breeding stock. We believe the mares represent 60 to 70% of the foal. Therefore to us, the blood stock, refinement, motion, balance and temperament are everything when choosing a breeding mare.

We have created some unexpected and wonderful friendships with people from all over the world that share this crazy addiction and admiration for the breed. That is probably the most rewarding part of this wonderful lifestyle.

Stop by and meet our great people loving - flying ranch dog ‘Texas Ranger'...guaranteed to put a smile on your face.

You are welcome. Our gates are always open.
