Our teams are as important to us as our saddle horses. Without them our daily chores and work might not have been so enjoyable and might have not got done at all. Some of the teams we still have others have crossed that bridge but we still remember them all and appreciate how hard they work for us.

A Look Back At Our 2013 Year



We used our teams Jimmy and Polly and Moose and Manny this winter to feed cows.
 1 Hour Old
 2 Days Old
Our Clydesdale mare Dolly had a cute little filly we call Susie.

We doctored calves after feeding everyday.


The meadows got harrowed 4 abreast with the teams this spring.



And what's a spring without branding calves.






We made it up to Mackay for a David Stoecklein workshop in November. If you have never gone, we highly recommend going!

We hope all of you have a Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year!!
