Life on a "mini" farm in rural central North Carolina with an assortment of small canines and equines. Add in some chickens, cats and other fauna and surrounded by the beauty of the Uwharrie Mountains, life is good and for sure never dull!

It's been HOW long?

Ok would someone please tell me how I let five months go by and not post? Where did time go?
So what has happened since the last time? We have added another performance gelding, Sunny will be County Pleasure Driving and possibly jumping. We are also adding a new broodmare. Jack's mother Velvet will be joining our little herd soon. (pictures to follow)
We had a litter of IG pups back in Sept. ALL boys!! ( Not what I wanted but hey not something you can control) We will be keeping a stunning blue boy out of the litter and still have an equally nice, small show quality seal and white boy available to an approved show home.

Frosty Driving


We took Frosty over to Jim and Mary Fraizer's Sunday for a driving lesson. While both of us ( Frosty and I) need work, we think he did pretty good. Hopefully we will both be in better shape in time for the Spooktacular in Oct.

Welcome to the Farm


This past weekend David and I took a quick trip up to PA to pick up a new performance gelding.

Frosty looks to be everything we could ask for, he drives, does halter, jumps and does obstacles. We should have lots of fun with him next year.

Nice AMHR Pinto Mare for sale


Since we just purchased a performance gelding to show and I need to get numbers down to four or less we have reluctantly decided to sell Dreamie, our 35 inch, 10 yr old black and white pinto mare. She is broke to drive and has been shown in Halter. ( was Reserve State Champion Senior Mare in 2004). She foals easy and produces small correct and colorful foals. We are offering her for $950 way below her value but we all know what the current horse market is like.
We also have her 2010 AMHR black colt available. He should stay small enough to hardship into AMHA.

Changes in Numbers

Well after finally coming to realise that there was no way I could work and show horses with the current number, we decided to sell some of them. I know, six adults and two foals are not that many to lots of folks, but it turns out that is just a few too many for me. Nonnie has already been sold, hopefully Annie, Casey and Keeper will be soon going to a new home. Still not sure what to do with Romeo.

Now I can start working with Jack and Shira, plans are to show them in Oct, at our clubs fun show.
