Would anyone like to do a Christmas Card exchange?

please let me know here!

So, as most of you know. We have bought the 46x100 barn, that was pretty much in our yard.


2 12 x 12 box stalls

8 Tie stalls 5 x 8


This is just the back 60 feet of the barn on the left side of it. Next year we will do something similar on the opposite

side. We will be having this completely paid off in 2 years!


We will have running water in the barn as of next week!  The hole is half dug now...till the tractor broke..lol..so it

will be completed on Monday!


I sold Gunner this fall :-/ but he is only a few mins away from me.  I still have Princess, Molly, Jessie, Rogue ( coming 2 yo colt that I showed last year and

am planning on promoting and showing him as a 2 n 3 yo ) and I may be picking up another mare named Navaho ..she is due in June.  I also picked

up a sweet 2.5 yo paint gelding..grade..for Brooke...so will be housing 6 horses of my own.


All my foals from this year have successfully sold to great homes! 2 show homes and 1 non show home.


I have a couple horses lined up in the spring to further their training.


So far it's been a successful year!


Hope all is well!

Barn Fire

Syl, one of our members, has suffered a huge loss..including all her personal horses plus horses that were boarding.


Please keep her in your prayers through this time!


I won't post the link, but folks are donating some money to help her re build a barn. No, the lives will never be replaced or be

replaceable...but it was her passion and dream.


If you'd like to help in any way..please contact me either on FB. Candice Corbin or email me so I can send you the link for donations.


There is no pressure to donate...just well wishes is fine too!


Candice.pridham@gmail.com  or just post here and I'll pm you the link.

Barn, Yes!

Finalizing with a lawyer next week. Payment will be put down on it on Nov 15th! What a HUGE major step guys! 


Now, we have been looking at options for stalls..the back of the barn is dirt floor. We are going with 4 box stalls...and

the rest tie stalls. 


What are your choices for stalls, and flooring.


Pictures please! 

So What Do You Think..

I have taken an interest in genetics etc etc.


I've sent in Gunners Hair samples, to find out if he carries the LWO gene and checking for the Agouti gene.

Molly my mare threw a buckskin baby, who was homozygous for the Agouti gene.  


Because my foals all had fairly white socks..someone mentioned that he may be carrying a gene that would be overo.

His dam was a minimal white overo, He's a solid Red Dun with white socks.


Also thinking about Color Paneling Molly...I thought she was a smokey black..but something is saying buckskin to me.



Have any of you tested your horses..to just "know" ?
