He is a big mover and is full of try. This is a once in a lifetime horse.
2006, 17 hand spotted draft-cross. I personally consider Keystone to be my dream horse, both incredibly majestic and excellent in demeanor. Kind and trustworthy, he's a gentle giant that just gets up and goes - I can and have taken him on any terrain. He's been ridden dressage and cross-country but we are finding his talent is in the hunter ring. Check out his videos and pictures from 2015.
Keystone is doing what he loves best: Jumping and showing with a gung-ho teen girl in Oregon. I'm so happy to get frequent updates about this guy and all of the ribbons he is winning with his girl.

Class A 4 foot jumper. Sold to an amazing show home in Oregon.
2012 14.1+ Few Spot Appaloosa Mare - Mocha came to me from her breeder. She was just sitting and not being utilized so I took her on a sport horse prospect. Mocha is maturing and growing into a super FUN horse for trails, general pleasure riding, and jumping. She will be at some local and regional shows during the spring and summer 2017. Mocha continued to do showing, camping, 4-H, trails, and parades. This is a solid mare.
Update: March 2020 - Mocha has been a valued member of our family but is not being ridden like she should. It's time for her to find her next person to go showing and out for adventures. This is sad for us. Mocha will always have a retirement home offer here.

1999, 15.2 hand AQHA mare. Millie was my personal horse for years, providing endless hours of enjoyment on trail rides, out hunting, on camping trips, and at shows. Absolutely cherished, and despite many ribbons won, her biggest achievements were undoubtedly the many kids she taught to ride. Many family albums have photos of her and the smiling daughters of friends and clients. Millie is still local to Nampa, enjoying life as a trusted husband horse. Her 2010 son, Willie, is still with me and is definitely a sport horse prospect.

2010 Leopard Spotted, Sorrel Appaloosa Mare
Siska is a sweet mare. She has raised one foal so training was a bit behind horses of similar age. I actually looked at buying her for a friend but when my friend decided to wait on buying for a while, I purchased Siska. I thought she would make a fabulous little 4-H, jumper/eventer, trail horse. So far, I have been absolutely pleased with her temperament and try! I plan on showing Siska in the spring and summer of 2020. Pictures and video to be uploaded by Thanksgiving weekend.
I am only offering Siska for sale this winter because I had the opportunity to bring one of my "old" friends home and I am short on room. Price includes 30 days training.

2011 Shire Cross Gelding - Little Foot does not have little feet. He was named that because his larger brother, Denio was knick-named Big Foot. When Little Foot came along, it was just a given that he would get this name. Little Foot is a super star! We have used Little Foot for vaulting, packing 2 or 3 kids at a time, trail riding, lead line, and for friends. He goes English, Western, bareback and handles himself well for a big horse.

Simon has big, thick bone structure and should easily mature to 16.2, like so many of his siblings sired by Ernie. He has enough draft for size but is still very athletic. Simon is well on his way to being a solid, kind, gentle gelding that will truly be an outstanding all-around horse.
Oreo is a 2008, 16+ hand black and white spotted draft-cross mare, sired by Ernie. She showed herself to be an incredibly trustworthy horse on the trails and over fences, and served as a magnificent family horse. I have taken her over just about every terrain, and she was better on the remote desert trail than just about any horse short of a mustang we've had. A member of our personal herd for several years, she is missed, and is with a wonderful owner.
2007 15.3 hand, Dun, Shire/Paint cross gelding. This sweet, big boy belongs to family. He is just with me so I can help him find his dream home.

2012 14.3 Hand, Palomino Mare - Unknown breeding. We have absolutely struck gold with this mare! Tweety was spotted in an ad in very rural Idaho. We were looking for another kids' horse prospect. I took one look at her kind eye and just knew I had to bring her home. I even offered to buy her sight unseen because I had a feeling I shouldn't let her go. We brought this sweet mare home in September 2014 and she has successfully walked right into our hearts. Sent to Clock Work Farms in Idaho Falls. They LOVE her and we MISS her!
2011 15.1 Hand, Red Dun Mare - Quarter Horse and just a little Thoroughbred. Bugsy came with Tweety Bird in September 2014. I fell in love with her long pretty lines and floaty gaits.

He is already giving lessons and LOVING his kids!
Willie (Toy Jets Beau #5311816) is a 2010 registered AQHA, bay roan gelding. He is out of our favorite mare, Millie, and sired by Truckles Beau. Willie is living up to our expectations from this cross. He is tall, should mature to 16+ hands, and is very elegant. The roan gene does give Willie a unique coloring during certain seasons but during the late spring and summer, he is a classic blood bay. It only took a few days of Willie’s formal training to realize he would be like his sire and dam – intelligent and a very willing student.
Greta is a 2010, 15.2 hands Shire/Fjord cross, who is a genuinely special all-around horse. She is an intelligent, honest partner who excelled with every challenge we presented her. Greta is nearly bullet-proof with tarps and flags, and for her age, thus far she's showing herself to be excellent at eventing, trails, and packing, and she's even outstanding under harness, having been trained for team driving last fall. If we had to choose one horse to have had during the pioneer days, Greta would have been our girl. In a heartbeat.
Sadie is a 2010, 15.2+ black draft-cross mare, sired by Ernie, and half-sister to Digger. We started her training this winter, and she has proven to be a stunningly beautiful mount.

George is very pretty young gelding, having begun his training in October 2012. George is quiet and sensible, and loves the tarp and flag.

He is currently with a family in Kuna, Idaho.
2007, 15.2 hand AQHA Palomino mare. Lucy is a fun horse. She's an absolute beauty on the outside and a Mac truck on the inside, especially when it comes to trails, and has an amazing work ethic. She loves to go in the lead, she's brave, and will walk right out, ears forward and enjoying new territory. Extreme trail riding is definitely in her future, should her new owners be interested, as she will go up and down anything with great dexterity and stability, and I have never had her balk at a single obstacle on the trail. She's ponied other horses and has no problem with ropes all around and under her - one of her signature traits is actually being incredibly good with objects and situations that spook most horses.

Denio is a big Shire gelding, who will be 3 in spring 2014 - he's already 16 hands or more, and is both gendle and very nice to handle. Denio has just started his formal training, and so far he’s been a star. No problems with sacking out, first saddling, or crossing the tarp. We'll continue his training as the weather allows, first under both Western and English saddle, and then driving. Additional training can be negotiated. See Greta's page, his half sister – she is out of a Fjord mare and the same Shire stallion. Greta was an absolute dream to start under saddle and training - she's currently a cherished family member and dressage/trail mount. We believe this big gelding will follow in his sister’s footsteps. He's showing that same kind, giving demeanor, with a bit of a sense of humor, which is a joy to work with.
Ellie is going to be a tall mare. Ernie often produces 16.2+ and Ellie should be one. She has been the tallest of all of the weanlings we've had, even taller than the boys. She is a medium build draft-cross and is very athletic. Dressage and eventing will be in her future. We started Ellie’s formal ground training in May and she is a star. She has no problem with tarps, bridges, flags, and trailer loading. She moves away from pressure and walks on a long line. We don’t lunge any of the youngsters, we only teach them the basics at the walk. Ellie loves people and has a very sweet temperament.
2010, 15 hand Fjord/Spotted Draft Cross mare, sired by Ernie. Zaboo was the sweetest filly, though, sadly, we lost her to colic in the spring of 2012. We still have her mom, Grey Grace, in foal, and her full sister, Merilegs.
