This page is mostly full of pictures of past horses and pigs we have sold. Most of them being horses we have bred and raised, although some are pictures of our mares or stallions offspring that we did not own (outside breedings, etc.). If you own offspring from any of our mares or stallions, or purchased a horse from us please send us pictures of you 2 in action and we'll post it on our site. We are hoping this page will help those looking to buy a horse from us see just how our breeding program is succeeding.

Mel riding Steel (CV Docs Dashin Steel, son of our mare Parti, and full brother to our mare Hattie) in 2011, and then in the fall of 2010. Here is what Mel has to say about Steel, as a 4 year old gelding: "He has unbelievable temperament. Honestly he is by far the best tempered and easy going horse ever! I was sitting on him bareback a few days ago and about 20 horses ran across the hay field behind us goofin off and being silly and he didn't even bat an eye. I thought for sure I was going to get dumped. I am definitely going to purchase from you guys again!" Thanks Mel, you guys are a great team!
