Meet Our Barn Friends And Our Horses
ARTAUD / The Farm's Guardian
Artaud is a 15 2 hand Thoroughbred Gelding. He was raced in the eighties and in his short few race career won over $100,000. We have kept his name from his jockey papers. We believe he is named after the French Philosopher Artaud. He taught mom to ride, went on trails, in parades, and is fearless! Sadly he has been unrideable for many years due to a separated old fracture he probably sustained as a youngster on the track most likely ending his career. Near thirty, he continues to be the herd boss, and speaker of the barn. We all love him, but he's mom's for sure!

Happy's Little Chance is an APHA Registered Paint Gelding He does halter, showmanship, and training level dressage. Last Year he placed third in halter and 6th in showmanship for the year end awards at DVHA.
Sky Cloud Warrior Lisa's Little Guy
Sky Cloud Warrior is a 31" Non Registered Miniature Gelding. He found his way to us in 2006. We had never owned or handled a mini and found out really quickly how smart they are! He has learned to drive, and do Showmanship at halter. He loves negotiating obstacles! In 2007 he received Year End Champion in Novice Horse Driving at DVHA, and Year End Champion in Showmanship. Currently he is teaching my niece to ride!
