We raise top quality APHA, and AQHA horses. Our horses are the product
of years of selective breeding to produce a good boned, good looking athlete with
a kind and willing mind that can travel in the mountains, or the show ring with ease.
Our horses are raised in the most natural horse environment possible.
Broodmares run in bands with their foals, and the stallion that complements
them best. The stallion foal-sits the offspring while the mares
graze contentedly. Mares are responsible for their own breeding and the
breedup percentage is better than by hand breeding and manipulating
The foals are born in April and May, as nature intended, when
there is warm sunlight and green grass. New grass makes the perfect
foaling environment. Newborns are imprinted, and then returned to large
pastures where they develop strong bones and muscles from
strenuous outings with the other foals.
The weanlings are weaned in October. The mares and foals are stalled for a few
days to adjust to the barn routine, the mares are returned to the pasture and
kindergarten training begins for the foals.
The foals are haltered, taught to lead, groomed and taught to accept and
desire human contact. Once they pass horse kindergarten they are turned out to
pasture with a wise old horse to teach them horse manners.
Weanlings are kept close by through their first winter so we can check on them daily,
and give them proper nutrition. Come Spring they are gelded, vaccinated, and
turned out for a year of horseplay that includes creeks, steep hillsides, rimrock,
deer, cattle, elk, coyotes, quail, badger holes, cougar, and whatever else nature has in store.
This is a very important developmental year for them, because they are using and developing all
their bones and muscles naturally. When we bring them in to start their training, as 2 olds, they
are sure-footed athletes, gentle, and easy to start.
