The Ongoing Dream

See this statue at the National Cowboy Hall of Fame in Oklahoma City


Several years of being a professional farrier have guided me to my program's goals, along with a good eye for horses and the ability to hand-pick ones that fit my ideals.  Our program was built from the ground up:  hooves and legs before eye appeal, and all that before papers.  The foundation of our program in the early 1990's has led us to where we are now:  the finished product. 

We produce horses with sound structure, eye appeal, and top it off with a unique color to turn people's heads toward YOU.  Whether you are planning to show in an arena, work in the great outdoors, or ride down a steep and rocky trail, we plan to create a horse that will give you the ride-of-a-lifetime that is colored to make all heads turn and watch your ride-of-a-lifetime.

Our ideal horse possesses characteristics such as the following: 


Soundness...our number one concern with conformation overall.  An unsound horse doesn't do anyone any good!


A good head and neck (but not an incredibly or overly long neck) 


A back that isn't too short


A strong hip and gaskin


Dense bone of good size


Angle to the hock (not post-legged) 


Good-sized, strong feet  


A pedigree that warrants the investment of time and money you put into your horses.

There's a reason why the American Quarter Horse is so versatile, and that's because there's a style for everyone.  Your idea of the perfect Quarter Horse may or may not be similar to ours, and that's ok!

Our goal is to produce a working-horse conformation with eye appeal, and a pedigree that makes you want to invest in a horse. 

We also value honesty in all things. If a horse or foal we are selling has an imperfection, it will not be kept secret.

We hope you do like our preferences, and when it comes time for you to shop for your dream horse we hope you'll stop by and see our dreams-come-true!
