Just a little about me. I have been in the horse world for over 20 years and actively in the business for almost that many! I have traded, bought and sold many horses over that time and enjoy doing it. I enjoy meeting new people and riding a new horse. All who know me can say that my world pretty much revolves around these beautiful creatures.

I decided to start this website in order to do what I already am doing even better as well as to hopefully provide a way to stay home with my son a bit more!

Halter Training your young Foal

Here is a little information for you about how to halter train your young foal. It has worked for me! For our little discussion here let us assume that your foal is around 1-2 months old and hasn’t been handled a whole lot. If you have about 3 panels then you are in luck! Make your panels into a triangle and convince your mare and foal that they need to be in the middle of the triangle. Since it is a very small area you will be able to safely from the outside place your halter on the foal. The foal will most likely not enjoy this process but at least you are not hurting him or causing danger to yourself.

Now that you have the halter on the foal, you will need two people, one to lead the mare and one to lead the foal. Make sure that your lead rope for the foal is cotton, not nylon, so that you don’t get a rope burn! (know this from experience!) Lead the mare out and lead the foal out. The foal might run out or not be too willing to walk on the lead rope but keep holding on. It works best if you can get the foal to walk right between you and the mare. If the foal doesn’t want to walk forward, do not just pull on the lead rope. That will not work. You must either get another rope and gently place this around his hindquarters, like a figure eight and encourage him to walk forward from the pressure on his behind. For larger foals you can pull the lead rope to the side, causing him to be unbalanced and have to take a step in order not to fall over. Then pull the lead rope the other way so you zig zag around the pen. Eventually the foal will get tired of walking crooked and will start to follow you in straight lines. It is really neat how this works.

Keep working on his halter breaking every day and eventually he will get to where he leads without problems.

Good Training!!

Super Sweet Kid Gentle older mare – $450 SOLD!!!

Polkadot is an older quarter horse type mare, late teens/early twenties, very well broke to ride and safe enough for anyone to learn on. She has much more whoa than go and is very laid back and easy to handle and deal with. She ia an easy keeper although would definately benefit from being on senior feed, and tends to be the boss mare or at least in the middle of the herd ranks. She has been used for riding lessons and is a good beginner horse. She has a good steady trot and does well on the trails too. Definately not inclined to get spooked or run off!

She is looking for her forever home where she cn inspire confidence in some young soul or some older person as well. She has a current coggins and is up to date on her wormings.


PolkaDot was sold as a Christmas gift to some nice young kids! Hope they have lots of fun riding her!!

Barrel Race with Lady – Won 4th place

We hauled Lady (Real Blue Cowgirl) to a playday on Saturday and entered her in 4 events – poles, straight barrels (twice) and cloverleaf barrels. She ran very well on all the events but she absolutely shone on the barrel pattern! She ran a little slow because it was her riders very first time to a barrel race and she is not in top racing form but even so she took 4th place out of over 10 riders! We were so proud of both her and her young rider!!! Congratulations Skylar and Lady!!!!
