Katie and I made a mad dash back to Wisconsin to pick up the newest member of our barn!! Telli is an oldenburg yearling by Sagnol. He made the journey home like a trooper and we even missed bad weather! Katie bought him from Eowyn Brewer or Serendipity Sporthorses. Look for the next star in a few years!
On July 25, 2010 my good buddy Meeko (14) was lost to a tragic case of colic. He was a big personality in our barn and taught Katie so much for her competitive life. I was out of the country on vacation and could not be with him and I am so grateful for those that took care of him. We miss him terribly but are happy he is not in pain any more. Rest your adorable sole my friend.
Sad day here. We lost our beloved Oreo tonight. She has given so much. She taught Katie how to love a horse/pony; appreciate their sense of humor, ride determined, trust like a friend and play lots of fun games! The insurmountable time Katie and Jessica (on Melanie) spent on their ponies was so fun to watch. Katie got her when she was 4 which put Oreo at about 33 yrs old. We all will miss her.

Marahoote, our broodmare, is for sale. I need to scale back and focus on the riding horses! She is the mother of Artisan and Santayo (the now 2 year old) She is 16.3 h, 15 yrs old. KWPN but also in the ISR/NA and Oldenburg Breeders Society studbooks. I showed her through 2nd level winning the San Diego Chapter Champion Award. In her showing she had very high scores in the 70’s. Unfortunately an old injury surfaced and I had to retire her. I am considering ANY OFFER.
Katie’s first dressage horse found a special home where he can show her the ropes and enjoy life! He is in the mountains of Descanso enjoying his new pony club mom, another Katy! As well as that he has a herd of cows to keep him entertained! I miss the little guy but am so happy that he has a full life once again.
