Riding horses & more horses!

Its the end of June already! I am so bad at posting these days! But its for a good reason! We have been able to get in lots of riding time on our horses. We have had some decent weather despite the rains, so we have been blessed with lots of time to ride our ponies! We were busy in April and May readying horses for our spring sale. Once that was over with we could concentrate on the horses we want to sell privately and horses we want to finish. I have also been working with my new barrel horse prospect and had the pleasure of attending a barrel racing clinic with 5x NFR Qualifier Sherrylynn Johnson. If you ever get the chance to go to a clinic with her as the clinician, GO! It is more than worth the money! I was blessed to have her standing in our arena at the ranch teaching the clinic! It was totally fun! I am so pleased with my new prospect! He is working out great! She taught us lots of new techniques and lots of horsemanship. Lots of tools we can apply to riding the other young prospects that we have for sale and are finishing. Below are some photos of one horse that is for sale at this time and one horse that may be for sale in the future. Both horses are sound and coming along nicely. If you are at all interested, please feel free to drop us a line with any questions! I also had a blast taking the pics. I felt like I was out of practice with taking livestock shots, so it was good to be back out there practicing again & shooting one of my great loves! So, enjoy the pictures and if you're looking for a prospect, drop us a line!

The first 2 pictures below are of the horse that we have for sale at this time. His name is Leo Drift Zip (we call him Cisco). He is a registered Quarter Horse Gelding. He stands about 15HH at this time and is filling out nicely. He may have a little more growing to do, but not too much! He is coming along really nice and will make a super ranch, rope, or arena horse. At this time he takes a little more of an experienced rider. With time, and the more broke he gets, he should become quieter. He has a smooth gait, is willing, and wants to please! Please inquire for price.

The last 3 photos are of a horse names Boons Feature Shot (we call him Yellow). He is a registered, Quarter Horse Gelding. At this time he stands 15.3HH almost 16HH. He is a mighty big boy already and is not done growing either. He is already quite stout and with another year's growth, he will be even bigger. He has had 11 rides at this point and is coming along super. We plan to start him on barrels and start him on cattle. This horse is not for sale at this time! We want to see what he can do and then will decide at a later date what the price will be for this super handsome fellow!
