I found the Walla Walla Valley while working constuction when I was 18 years old and have lived here since. I retired early from City of Walla Walla.
I am Conveniently located in Milton Freewater, Oregon, I am a full service facility representing some of the breed's finest bloodlines. My goal is to produce superior animals that are highly competitive in and out of the show ring and breeding shed and that are true ambassadors of the breed.
I always dreamed of having a black stallion and raising quality AQHA horses. I had managed stud farms around the area and had the opportunity to handle some outstanding stallions including Biankus in his later years and several other well know stallions. I bought Midnight Driftwood (Drifty) as a yearling in 1998, and started buying a few good mares, and breeding some quality outside mares. So far his foal crops are OUTSTANDING !!
Drifty is siring 100% Black on Black Mares, 85% Black on sorrel mares. Not only does he have the right color, his foals have a very nice, trainable disposition.
Drifty does not carry the red color gene, which means he does not throw red colored foals. Drifty's sire has made a name for himself as a pickup horse at the National finals rodeo and was purchased by the 6666 Ranch in Texas. He is currently owned by the Ranch manager. Drifty's dam is a brood mare that has produced some awesome foals.
After Breeding and raising mules for 11 years, I have sold my Jack. I still train mules, but have sold all my mares, so he was sold to a horseman in Montana.
I have shown foundation Quarter Horses and my goal is to raise ranch, trail and good solid performance horses.
I ride in the mountains of Idaho, Oregon and Washington where Drifty goes with me occasionally, thou he is most happy at home with his broodmare band. Most of my brood mares are saddle horses first.
I carefully tailor each horse's feed and maintenance program, work schedule, playtime and one-on-one pampering to ensure “user friendly” individuals with happy, healthy minds and bodies. All of my horses get Dynamite vitamins and good quality hay.
Whether you're looking for an all around prospect, your next future champion, quality breeding stock or that special companion, let me help you. I am committed to the high standard of excellence that my customers have come to expect.
I also Raise and train Pembroke Welsh Corgi Dogs.
