Bill & Deb,

I am sending you a picture of Shiloh and me.  He is a wonderful horse, such a good boy.   He is awesome on the trail.   People can't believe he is only 3 years old.   I am so in love with him already. He is very quiet and wants to please and will do anything for a cookie! I couldn't be more pleased - he really is my dream horse!   Thanks for helping me.

Silver King’s Sam


2002 buckskin gelding, reg. Mountain Pleasure. Sam is about 14’3 and finer built. Has plenty of go and is a gaiting machine. Ties, loads, trailers, rides alone or with another horse. We have not ridden him with a big group. He loves to ZOOM on the trail and so needs a rider that enjoys moving out. He does the mud, creeks, downed logs, etc without a 2nd thought. His right eye doesn’t show it, but has reduced vision. This does not bother him around the farm or on the trail. Be sure to watch his gait on the video!

Polly Patches

Polly Patches - We have Patches for sale by her owner Marcie. Marcie has had health problems that makes her unable to ride Patches any longer. Patches is a 10-7-2003 model, reg. Spotted Mountain Horse. She is dark chocolate over white. She's a lovely mare about 14'2 or 3. She has some go and will get a little pushy and bob her head when forced to walk all the time. But she just wants to get out and do a nice little gait from time to time. Marcie had us take her to the Buffalo River last fall to work her and she has heart from tip of her nose to end of her tail. She has no quit in her on those long tough climbs. Bill had to stop her to let her blow (since she had not been ridden much) but she would quickly be ready to continue the climb! When she gets impatient she will bob her head and ask to move her feet, but we had no acting up at all. She has been ridden by women, men, and some youngsters that were good riders. She has been ridden through water, downed trees, and all that stuff with no problem. Goes alone or with others. The pictures/video were taken at our farm when Patches was a 3 y.o.

  Phantom Phantom Phantom



Phantom is a flashy fast moving racking horse - 10 year old gelding.  About 16 hands, sound and solid!  He's a loverboy and right in your pocket.  If you offer him a slow ride, he can do that, but if you want to fly, he can do that too.  No vices, no tricks up his sleeve, he's a real honest guy to handle, and a head turner as well. Has been ridden on trails all over and camps overnight on a picket line. He is a good horse, but not a beginner's horse as he is high energy and too much horse for a novice. Bill has just had his 10th heart stent and is in cardio rehab, and is starting physical therapy for back problems. He needs to move Phantom to a home where he will be used.

Romeo's Rocketman


This is Romeo's Rocketman. If you want to put this current picture in your SOLD section on the internet, go ahead.  I call him Augie.  Just letting you know he's doing great.  A month ago I measured him and he was 15 hands already.  He's growing like a weed.   He goes on trail and is doing great.  He knows how to kick a ball while on his back and to walk up the mounting block.  Looks like he was the right choice.  He is spoiled.  Hope all is going well with you and Bill.

Linda Somers

This KMSHA yearling is everything you look for in a great trail horse. The picture show's him doing a perfect single-foot, he has a very natural 4 beat gait. He should be between 15 and 16 HH at maturity. He looks to be turning a red chocolate with a lighter mane and tail. He's powerfully built. If I was thinking about a future trail gelding, I would look no further than this guy. Out of Romeo's Journey and Charity. The price will go up as we start him under saddle in mid-summer.

Gambler Joe


Gambler Joe was purchased as a youngster and started on the trail by Cheryl Douglas.

"Joe is a great horse.  Calm disposition, no problems loading or with the farrier.  Does water and obstacles with no problem. As he is maturing, his gait is improving and he has filled out quite a bit.  Last year, as a 3 year old, he was a little nervous about being in the lead or at the back of a trail ride. This year, that's not an issue.  He also didn't like going out by himself last year.  This year, he was taken out many times by himself and did well.  Keeping up with Spanky wasn't possible last year.  This year, he can move out.  Not quite Spanky's speed but close.  Last year, we stirred up bees while riding in the Shawnee.  He didn't panic at all. Just gaited quickly out of the area.  No bucking, shying or spooking."

  Debs Darlin Debs Darlin

Deb's Darlin $2,250 sold


Deb's Darlin is about 11 yrs old and 14-2.  She came to us after her owners had financial problems and abandoned her at a boarding facility.  She was reg. a rocky, but of course the papers are gone.  I ride her bareback and with saddle.  She has camped overnight.  She's no problem to deal with.  I was going to keep her for the grandchildren, but she is just a little impatient and I decided she needs a rider that can understand when she wants to get going.  She is relaxed and great alone or with a group.  In a group she is happy to linger behind, not a tailgaiter at all.  Can climb on from the ground, a bench or a table.  Not at all spooky.  When you are out riding if you are with someone that is constantly stopping and having trouble or putsing around she will stomp and shake her head, she wants to get going.  She is often very good about waiting, but do it too much and she tires of the nonsense.  She loads and backs off wonderfully.  Has a lovely trail gait.  Be sure to watch the videos of Darlin.

Belle $2,500 sold


Belle – 14’3 10 y.o. RMHA mare. Pretty choc/flax. Sweet disposition, easy to catch with no “tricks up her sleeve'’. She has done some tough trails with us and camped overnight on a picket line. Belle is non-combative about everything including other horses. She has good feet and strong build. She has a nice 4 beat gait and will willingly go, but has no ideas about being a speed horse and is perfectly happy to walk all day if you want. Climb on from the ground, picnic table, a log or rock – she’s cooperative about it. Good with traffic, bikes, dogs, etc. Goes alone or with other horses, can lead or follow. Bill has been using her reguarly to trim trails with his machete. Loads herself and backs off with a pull of the tail. Be sure to watch her videos coming soon!

Beautiful filly $1,000 sold


DOB 3/20/2013  This filly is out of Bonnie Blue (KMSHA reg) and Buttermilk Biscuit (KMSHA and RMHA reg.).  She is put together beautifully with an exceptionally pretty face.  Her gait is wonderful already and she naturally sets herself into frame when going into her gait.  If you are willing to wait a few years, she will make you an extraordinary ride.  She is bred for the trail and both parents are great non-spooky smooth gaited trail horses.  Both have strong legs and feet.  She will probably end up at 14-3 to 15 hands and be plenty strong to carry a big person.  If purchased on or before weaning  $1,000 - you will not find a horse with better genetics for the trail.  Both parents have very long wavy manes and tails.  Be sure and watch the videos!

She's been spending this summer ponying youngsters on the trail as well as being used for a buddy to youngsters under saddle for their first few rides.  She is so steady and confident that it naturally rubs off on them.  She also has gotten a high gear on the trail - wheeee!  Rides solo with no nonsense, or rides with a group.  She's very eye catching as she comes a gaiting thru camp with her head held high, or as she parks out for you to mount.

Ramblin Man $2,500 Sold

Ramblin Man is a 9 year old, 15-1 hand gaiten’ machine. I took him out for the first time since we got him 4 months ago. I did not know what to expect. He did not want to stand well at first because he wanted to get back with his buddies in the pasture. It was not long before I could see this boy was the complete package. We went right up to the scary granite boulders at the start with no problem, over the logs, up the road and past the traffic, no semis or motorcycles went past, but cars and pickups weren’t even noticed. We went up to the 300 ft. wind turbines (Windy) the noise and blade shadows had zero effect. Road past the rustling corn and then into the rows. A pheasant flew up 10 yards away. Still zero effect! Will plug along or gait out. I forced him down a wooden ramp laying on the ground. He takes spurs well with no buck, kick or rear. As we rode past his pasture buddies he stopped. A little spur and we were on our way. I then got out my bull whip and slowly got him used to it and with in a few minutes I was cracking it over his head. I opened the truck tail gait off his back and stepped off. He needs just a little work with that. His feet are tender on the gravel and should be shod for trail. You can see two scars from old injuries. (see pictures) He needs just a couple of tune up rides and he will be ready for almost anyone. I took off his tack and he was very quite. I hooked him to the side rail of my pickup truck and slowly returned him back to his pasture tied to the truck. What a horse!

Halebopp $1,200  sold

Halebopp – 15 y.o. well gait trail gelding.  He is out of our stock and sold at weaning.  He hasn’t been used much in the past 4-5 years, but we have had him back out on the trail.  He stands for mounting and dismounting, loads, ties, good with traffic, loves to move on down the trail, great gait, probably his only fault is when you are out on the trail, if you stop and ask him to stand still he likes to keep his feet moving.  If you get off he relaxes and he’s good for mounting and dismounting.  He was eligible for RMHA/KMSHA reg., but the owners never did it, and they lost the paper work. First $1200 takes him.

New Horse sold


Take a look at our newest horse!  She surely needs some groceries.  She is around 12 y.o. and was in a load of horses heading south.  Probably paid too much for her, but her gait is amazing and she needed something we could give her.  I will be doing updates so you can watch her fill out and become the horse she should be.  Have only take one 5 minute ride on her and loved what I experienced.  I’ll keep you updated as we do more riding once she gets some weight on her.  Join us for the transformation!!!

Update: After 2 weeks of good groceries, I thought I’d better take her out to see what her attitude is on a full belly and gaining weight. She’s laid back and confident. Loads when you through the lead rope over her back, does the water, deer, turkey, etc with ease. Bill passed me flying low and she just watched him and he took the picture as we caught up – as you can see, getting left behind is not a big deal. She has a nice relaxed gait, and we will be putting shoes on in 2 weeks and then she should be fatter and we’ll check out the gait some more and see what she has for speed.

Fancy $2,000 sold


This 2005 TWH is a great trail mare. She’s pleasant around the other horses and has a wonderful gait. She’s a go any where type of horse but probably too much for a beginner or timid rider cause she can really scoot down the trail. She’s about 14’3 hands, not too tall. Good manners and good for farrier and vet. We are taking her for a week of trail riding along the Buffalo River in Arkansas on Nov. 27th, so will have some good pictures of her at work. Good around traffic, machinery, dogs, etc. This fall $2000, she’ll be higher in the spring.

He's started under saddle and he'll be hitting the trails soon. He’s a real head turner!

Gabbard’s Black Star – Sweetie $3,000 SOLD


Congratulations to Donna Keagle (the rider in the 2 new pictures) on her purchase of Sweetie/Gabbard’s Black Star!

This 16 y.o. mare has been Deb’s personal horse since we bought her as a 3 year old.  She has traveled an camped all over the U.S.  At 15.1 hands, she is as athletic as a youngster with absolutely no health issues.  Few youngsters can keep up with her in gait or on long days on the trail.  She has had a number of superb foals but always looks like the young filly with a sleek build.  She has been used for demos at horse fairs, brood mare, and incredible trail horse. A pleasure to work with and always ready to go. I am selling her because I have youngsters to break out and a couple older horses to retrain and she needs to go to a home where she can be enjoyed!   She can lead or follow or be left behind.  One amazing ride! Absolutely must go to a good home.

Little Lulu $900 SOLD

We are offering Little Lulu - a finer built 3 yr old filly.  She's up to date on shots, etc.  She was  traded in last fall by a lady that had purchased her as a youngster, but realized she is not going to be large enough for her to ride.  Lulu will probably be around 14'3 hands and is of a slender smaller boned build.  She's real stylish, loves people, easy to catch and handle.  Prior to coming to us last fall, she was ridden numerous times in an arena, but had a person on the lead line.  Her gait just loose in the field is a thing of beauty!  

When she came here, we  turned her out to the large pasture with the herd to have an extra winter to grow up and socialize with the herd, she is very good socially.  She has been pleasant to work with and handle.  Is not a jumpy nervous horse, I tied her for the picture and drove the car past her several times and she was totally unconcerned.  Left her tied several hours and the  knot was not pulled tightly at all, although the first time I tied her up, I was not careful to do a good knot and she released her self, went back to the barn and climbed into the stall she had been in before I started to work with her.  

As she sheds out I'll get some more photos, she's a lovely deep red with nice blaze and 4 stockings.  I'll also get a video up of her.  She has not been reg. but has the papers to do her registration.  If you want a flashy, well gaited smaller filly - Lulu would perfect!  We will be breaking her to trail this summer, but if you purchase her before we put the time into her - we'll sell her for only $900.

(DOB. 7/26/95) - A RMHA/KMSHA red chocolate brood mare.  14'2 hands has beautiful foals with more size than their dam.  Her foals sell!  One was shipped to a breeder in France.  She is bred for a spring 2011 foal.  She breeds and foals without problem, is a very good mother, and enjoys human interaction even with a new baby by her side.  This mare has the gait bred into her and her babies inherit her natural gait.  Her first foal should more than pay for her.  I rode her on a vacation in Arkansas this spring, she has the heart and lungs to go forever and I enjoyed her, she would be great to breed for endurance type foals.  But we are selling her as a brood mare because at 15 we think that's were her value is and prior to this spring she has spent her whole life as a brood mare.

(DOB. May '05) Suzy Sunrise - KMSHA filly, 14 HH - This pretty little filly is a butterscotch with light mane.  She has an incredibly confident mind.  From first saddle-up to riding, the first ride was 45 minutes, with no funny business at all.  Two rides later, she went out on the trail and was totally fearless.  First time on the trail she went over downed logs - not little ones but big ones!  She went thru the mud, water, rode alone and with the other horse.  She went into gait and it was flawless.  A few more rides and she will be a completely finished horse with the gait to die for.  She is stout of body but she should be ridden by a person 200 lb. or under.   She is always ready to get the halter on.  The only thing we are still debating is whether we should sell her or keep her for breeding stock and for the grandkids to ride - yes, she's that good.  The mind, the gait, and a beauty to top it off.  Bill plans to sell her right now, but I want to keep her!  So you know who to talk to if you call!  The picture was taken her first time on the trail.  Suzy is out of the mare RMHA/KMSHA Stone Silk.

He is very soft and willing, but has stamina and heart from the tip of his ears to his toes. He is extremely sure footed even in the boulder fields. And he has plenty of energy even riding around 11,000 ft at tree level. One day after riding for 3 hours, as we were heading back to camp with several other horses, I just gaited him up the steep slopes and then we picked our way back down as the other horse walked along, he was no where ready to quit, so after a quick lunch we were back out for several more hours of steep riding. And he didn't need time to adjust to the altitude, we camped at 10,200 ft and we got in Monday afternoon and rode 5 hours on Tuesday through extremely rough areas, and then on Wednesday we did the ride I described above. He really fulfills the meaning of Mountain Horse. He's a dark chocolate buckskin.
