Meet our family of horses, dogs, and cats...
Confetti's Tickertape (Confetti) is also a Morgan we adopted from Forever Morgans Rescue. Confetti definitely has more spunk than Julie but she also loves to work and absolutely loves people. Confetti has been my main Western Dressage horse, qualifying for 2016, 2017, & 2018 Morgan Grand Nationals. We chose to attend the 2017 Western Dressage Association of America World Championship in Guthrie, OK. This was a our first "Big" show and we had a very respectable show!
gradells act one & Storm
Gradells Act One (Julie) is a Morgan we adopted through Forever Morgans Rescue. She is an absolute doll - she loves people and other animals. Julie is said to be broke to drive but we have not driven her. She does ride and we have done some light showing in Western Dressage- she loves to work! She is very good with inexperienced riders as she is super patient and really takes care of them.
Storm is a Tennessee Walker and is definitely the clown of the farm. Storm is as curious as a cat and as steady as they come. Storm is a trooper on the trails and just does his thing. He loves to be around people and other animals. Storm and Yang can often be seen playing with each other in the field - what a site that is!
Yin & yang
Yin & Yang were the first "horses" to arrive. They came to us as young foals who had never been handled. They now love to be scratched, petted, and loved on.
Fletcher and Xiong (she-ong), came home with us when we picked up Julie. They were adorable kittens and we didn't have any barn cats. When we brought them home, we thought Fletcher was a he and Xiong was a she. Oops! As it turned out, Xiong is a he and Fletcher is a she. Fletcher was typically the first to greet anyone in the barn, with Xiong usually close behind.
Cleo came to us when one of Rebecca's friends found a stray kitten in a dumpster. Cleo is short for Cleopatra because of the black rimmed eyes. Cleo was another case of mistaken identity. When we took her in to be spayed, we found out Cleo was a he, so he was neutered. Cleo was the shyest of the cats and typically stayed his distance from strange people.
Unfortunately, Fletcher went over the rainbow bridge in 2017. She is greatly missed as she always went for a ride on my shoulders.
Dusty and Sasha are primarily house dogs, but occasionally they visit the barn. Sasha's Bassett Hound nose get the best of her every once in a while...and she tracks a bunny out into the field.
