Sarah is a 2003, 15hh, homozygous, black tobiano Paint mare. She has many multi-discipline world champions on her pedigree including A Summer Breeze, Dixies War Drum, Rebels Miss Amy and Buck McCue. She is the most affectionate and easy-going mare. She was imported from the Bigfoot Ranch, Alberta, Canada.

Q is a 2002, 15.1hh, homozygous, grey tobiano Paint mare. She is also homozygous for the black gene so will never produce a 'red' foal. She is similarly bred to Sarah on her topline but also has Quince Cody and the TB Nasrullah on her bottom line. Q has a particularly beautiful head which she passes on to all her foals. She was also imported from the Bigfoot Ranch, Alberta, Canada.

Pearl is my latest acquisition and completes my small band of quality mares. She is a 15.1hh, 2003 , perlino Quarter horse from Bohannon Farms in Kentucky. She is 97% foundation bred with greats like Royal King, Joe Cody, Windchester, King, Wimpy and Skipper W in her pedigree. She was broken as a 3 year old then put in foal as a 4 year old, producing a superb buckskin colt in 2008 to Feel Bows Thunder, a 100% Foundation black QH. He has competed very successfully in multi discipline events in World championships. She was bred back to him and in 2009 produced a superb palomino colt for me.
Pearl has superb conformation and a very easy-going personality. Nothing has fazed her since she arrived. The 2 photos of her in the barn above were taken minutes after she'd arrived.
DNA tested Ee AA CrCr so will only produce buckskins or palominos. click for pedigree
Stacy 2009 aged 21
Stacy was born in 1988 and I have had her since she was 2 years old. She has had a very successful, albeit short, showing career at both local and national level. At her first Breed Show she was Ch. Broodmare and Ch. Premium Mare. She was equally successful at her second Breed Show and her first 2 foals were also national champions. In-between foals she has been a great riding mare but, due to a knee injury some years ago, she is no longer sound to ride. However, she is now enjoying a new career as a granny to the youngsters. Stacy is one of those mares that come along once in a lifetime, totally reliable and so affectionate.
Sadly, Stacy's arthritic knee deteriorated so badly in 2014 that the heart-breaking decision was made to put her down in July, at the age of 26. She will be sorely missed and it is the end of an era for me.
