JOE HANCOCK
Sire: John Wilkins
Dam: Hancock Mare
1923 Brown Stallion



Joe Hancock was known for his strong frame and surprising speed. He was by John Wilkens, a son of Peter McCue, and out of a half Percheron mare. During his career as a race horse Joe Hancock was said to be "open to the world at any distance from the starting line to three-eighths of a mile". There finally became a time when he simply ran out of competition.

It was through his offspring that Joe Hancock became known as the all-time leading sire of rope horses. His offspring were known for their strength in stature, their bone, and their calm dispositions. Many Hancock horses today still have the typical Hancock build and both ropers and working cowboys alike swear by these quiet, hard-working horses.
