The pictures will be slow to load, after reading my note, you can view alot of pictures separately of my horses by selecting their names..
I have not owned many horses during my lifetime. Growing up horses belonged to the family, or my "adopted" family. I didn't own my own first horse until at 16, I was given one of the babies we raised. In my early twenties I gave that horse to a family on a lease option and didn't own my own horse until I was 40.
We just lost our big percheron draft Amos, Dec 05. He was old and his body and systems failed. I still miss him.
I do not raise horses as I get attached to them and a horse can be a lifetime committment. Although in June of 05, my husband and I raised our baby Peanut.
I have only sold one horses that I have owned, I almost always give them to a student or client.
Also now since 07, we have Derby. I helped buy Derby for Calero Ranch when it was open. I think we bought him in 95. Later, my dear friend Amber bought him from the Ranch for her daughter, Annie MacDonald who was killed in '07. Annie, we miss you.
A 16'3"hand bay thoroughbred gelding. Suitable for beginning through intermediate English riders. Jackson has a solid quiet disposition. He also has food allergies, he is even allergic to alfalfa. But, he is a great mount and a very comfortable ride. He would make a very nice equitation horse because he is so comfortable and carries himself so well. Jackson has the most personality of our horses. Here he is chewing on Razzle's tail!!
