2016 Land Report 100: King Ranch Heirs

Alice Walton dubbed The Boon “my favorite horse I have ever raised.”

No. 9 King Ranch Heirs

911,215 acres
In 2015, King Ranch announced the purchase of The Boon from Alice Walton and her Rocking W Ranch. The Boon is a seventh-generation descendant of Old Sorrel, King Ranch’s foundation stallion and the cornerstone of its renowned breeding program. The Boon is also a grandson of Peppy San Badger, a King Ranch stallion who changed the sport of cutting. “The Boon is my favorite horse I have ever raised. The Boon has a heart as big as Texas. There is no place I would rather see him than the world-famous King Ranch,” said Walton. The Boon stands at Brazos Valley Stallion Station.
