About Us & Contact Info
Our Guest Book

On this page you will find info on the mares we have on the ranch. All of our mares have strong breeding & great qualities that they pass onto their foals. We believe that a strong mare band is the foundation of  any breeding program. Please click on their picture to enlarge & view pedigree. For further info on the stallions they are bred to check out our stallion page . If interested in an up coming foal please let us know.

Being a responsible breeder is very important to us. Most of our mares have been five panel tested. Their results are posted in their info. We do have a few mares who are either N/Gb - GEBD carriers or Hrd/N - Herda These two genetic disorders are recessive. Meaning that even though they carry one copy it will never manifest in her offspring. Our stallions are NN . It will never effect her or her offspring in any way. The choice to continue to have these girls in our program was an easy one. They are amazing mares with solid breeding and traits they pass to their offspring.
