Operating as usual

[09/05/21]   DJ, Patrick, and animals all made it safely to NV yesterday afternoon.
This was her response to what everyone posted:

Wow Everyone! Thank you SO VERY MUCH! It has been a pleasure to know you all and be apart of your Horse Loving World!
I have hopes to continue teaching and helping people with their horses. And hopefully show Sweet Sing in more Derby classes.
This isn't goodbye, just I will see you later.🐎⚘
God Bless you All!🙏

[09/01/21]   We are sad to announce that after many years serving the southwest Missouri community and caring for countless equines, training many many horses (and human students too), DJ and Patrick have decided to retire and move to a more temperate climate.
We will all miss them very much but we are also excited for their new adventure in NV.
If you would like to send cards or well wishes, private message the farm for their new address.
They want to thank all their clients from over the years and wish everyone well and happy trails!!
The incoming owners do plan to continue boarding (I’m not sure on lessons or training), but I do have their contact information also, if you’d like to reach out to them.
We’ll probably be taking down the farm page in a couple weeks, but wanted everyone to have ample time to see this post and reach out if they wanted to.
Thanks again and please join us in wishing DJ and Patrick a great retirement!!

[11/04/20]   I am looking for a gentle, amateur horse , gelding, for schooling lessons. Mainly for English, but Western Pleasure, also.
I would like to lease in exchange for boarding. I am known for giving top care, training, and supplying full nutritional fed and supplements. Please call me if you have a horse you would like to least for trade. 417 840 9832.

[08/17/20]   I also give western riding lessons. I come from California and grew up in the Quarter Horse world. Competing at Santa Rosa, snaffle bit futurity and other western pleasure shows. Placed 3rd at the World Quarter Horse Show, Working Cow Horse, 1984.
I love helping people connect with their horses.
Horses are so incredible!!!

[07/27/20]   DJ's Starting Line has openings for stall and/or pasture board! Come enjoy the low-key, family-friendly, environment at our stable. Lots of room to ride! Huge grassy pastures with salt and mineral blocks and fresh water available at all times.
Pasture boarded horses receive grain and a vitamin/mineral each morning included with the board fee. Also, extras like applying your blankets, fly masks, etc are included! Another extra that’s unheard of is each horse having their own stall/covered pen in case of inclement weather (mostly pasture horses too!) and each horse is fed individually to allow them to get all their feed, vitamins, and minerals!!
DJ has been working professionally training horses for over 30 years! Beginner through advanced riding lessons are offered and training is available upon request. Come see what a great home DJ's Starting Line could be for your horse! 12/31/2019

Beware the Horse Girl

Us horse crazy gals :) Not long ago, I stumbled upon an article about how women with horses should be avoided at all costs. There are multiple like this particular missive online, posts espousing horse girls as manipulative money burners who smell bad and have no soul. But Internet trolls are not the only ones with an odd... 12/11/2019

A photographer stumbled upon a rare zebra foal with spots instead of stripes, and it's adorable

How interesting!! Being obviously different from other members of the herd will likely make this foal stand out and make it an easier target for predators 07/29/2019
