Pictures from the day.... from ringo pampering to Lilly’s “happy” face ... it was a great day to be at the barn!


I would like to send out a happy thanksgiving to everyone! If it weren’t for wonderful family, amazing friends and excellent clients, I would not have been able to make my dream job a reality. I, truly, hope that you all have a day full of laughter, love and full bellies as you celebrate your thanksgiving. Don’t forget to share your apples, and carrots, with your four legged steeds for the holiday! I would also like to give a big shout out to Amanda Groce, nephews Benji and Griffin, and son Atticus for helping clean the barn and stalls so i can spend more time with my family on thanksgiving. And here’s a picture of the sweet boy to fill up your timelines 😂...

I think wimpy is excited for sunshine and green grass this spring and summer!

Ayla and one of her babies! It's sad that her not even yearling yet is taller then my reiners. 😂

I'm a little late, but we would like to welcome NCSU Rugged Storm aka Pretzel to our family. She's already getting spoiled and pampered


[12/19/16]   The paint horse world lost a lovely lady today, Rest In Peace Debbie Honeycutt

This is Tuesday....I just wanted to post his picture and say how far he has come in 6-7 months he has been at the farm. He's muscled up, gained a good amount of weight, and really rounded up in his top line! Can't wait for him to show off at some shows next year!

[11/24/16]   We would like to wish you all a happy, and safe, thanksgiving! I am personally thankful for all of my family, friends, and clients who have allowed me to make my dream come true. Being able to work with our four legged friends every day can be hard work, but extremely rewarding at the same time. Thank y'all for being awesome and have a blessed thanksgiving!


I got snuggles with this guy today....
