The Triangle Cross brand has been carried for more than fifty years by Deb's parents, Bud & Artyce Forell, of Phillipsburg, Ks. Bud rodeoed both ends of the arena, raised some AAA race horses, and cowboyed for some sixty odd years. At age 74, he was still riding the trails before his untimely death December 10, 2005. The Triangle Cross brand is carried in Kansas, Oklahoma and Texas.

Kudos to Streakin Senor Dash - 2014 NSRA Finals Champion!
In Memory of The Chocolate Dash
April 28, 1999 - August 15, 2011
He was 1,200 pounds of sheer power & speed
Delighted when the packed grandstand roared
He gave his all, with heart & determination.
On the wings of angels, now he soars.
Barrel racing is a complex sport full of emotion, expectation and adventure.
And we are lucky enough to share it with one of God’s most blessed creatures. Dena Kirkpatrick

"Floyd" is a full brother to The Chocolate Dash. He has had some dressage training, together with his barrel training. He has never been used hard and has been ridden by young to old. He is sound, requires no maintenance and barefoot. He is a perfect horse for a young person and quiet enough for an older person.

DOX DIRT DANCER
(Doc O'Lena x Jewell's Leo Bar) "Doc" was the first horse I trained that had not been off the track. He was bred to be a cutter but got too big. He was a lot of fun to train, and tried his heart out every trip. He also had a great mind - as evidenced by a mishap during one of our competitions at a rodeo - as we took off to the 1st barrel his bit broke - all that was on his head was the browband, everything else was hanging around his neck. In a split decision, I decided to go for my run. Doc made a great run, just a little wide on his turns and we were just out of the money! At the end of the run, I sat down, and he came to a stop. That has been as close as I have come to a bridleless run. Doc went on to a successful rodeo career with Miss Rodeo Arkansas.
CHESTERS TWISTER JET -
Black Gelding Sire: Chesters Supreme Dam: Bebe Jet
"Twist" was the product of my dad's breeding program and was a power house of a horse. But he had a nice mind and was a lot of fun. Kathy Fangmeyer of NE took him on a successful barrel racing career.

"Ruthie" was an own granddaughter of the immortal Top Deck and had Three Bars on her papers! Very well bred and we only raised two colts from her but they were both very nice.
Sensuous Baby - a/k/a Sassy - gray mare that went on to set records and win a high school barrel racing title for a young girl.
