2012 Red Dun Grade Paint Mare - Butterscotch is young mare with a world of potential. She should mature to about 15.1 hands and has beautiful conformation. She is not just pretty, it's her temperment that we love most! She is so mellow and willing. Butterscotch is quiet, friendly and extremely respectful. This is our keeper for the family. She is everything we need in tiny package. This mare is a fun, all-around mount for western, English and trails!
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. I will be updating her page regularly.
Update: July 2017 - This sweet mare has far exceeded my expectations. She is being ridden by my 9 year old son!
Mocha has spent the last 3 years packing my kids around. She may be for sale. Price will be $6500.
2013 Sorrel Blanket with Spots, Appaloosa/Morgan Gelding. Bullseye is a cool guy and loaded with talent. He has a lovely, lofty trot and an easy canter. He is taken very well to jumping and is going to be a star. Bullseye is honest and steady to the fence and does not rush off after. He actually has a really nice, hands free stop. Bullseye has a western foundation and is starting to focus on his jumping and dressage now. He is a great trail horse and really walks out. There is no quit in Bullseye and he gets along with everyone!
2002 14.3 Hand Roan Appaloosa Mare - Freckles was a broodmare and purchased because we love Penny so much. We put Freckles to work and she is a rockstar! Freckles is kind, tough and very talented. She is perfect for the kids and has the ability to go far, even though she has a late, late start in her career!
We are going to breed Freckles in the spring of 2019 as we pursue the ultimate Sportaloosa. Freckles has been confirmed in foal to Fijn, an RPSI stallion. I cannot wait to see this foal in April 2020.
My war horse, Zee, gone but not forgotten.
Some of the foundation stock: Ernie (now retired), Sudden (sold) and Grey Grace (deceased).
2006, 15.2 hand grulla Fjord/APHA cross. Zee has always struck me as a horse of yin-yang characteristics - a sweet war horse, both massive and powerful while also kind and gentle. He's like riding a soft couch on top of an Abrams tank. Kids have used him at horse camp for vaulting, sometimes with two or even three riders, yet on the trail he's an all-business tank that goes anywhere with great strength and grace. With very little prep, he's also ready to go eventing at any time. Zee is a horse that's very easy to love, who has been an absolutely wonderful fit for my family. UPDATE: Zee was lost to colic November 26, 2012. I lost my dream horse but I will never forget him.
1999, 16.2 hand black and white draft-cross stallion. Ernie was imported from Canada, and has been used on a ranch for breeding. We have had the pleasure of owning and training many of his offspring, and he has numerous others competing in various disciplines. We are looking forward to the young ones coming up, and this next year's foal crop. Currently housed in Oregon so not open for breeding in Idaho. I will only have a few foals to come from this special old man. UPDATE: January 2016 - Ernie is retired. We will only get a limited number of foals from him.
2001 Black Shire Stallion - Registered with American Shire Horse Association. Sudden has an interesting story! He belonged to a friend of ours since he was a weanling. Our friend was extremely ill so we spent a lot of time with Sudden over the last year, caring for him and even bred one mare to him.
