We are a family of 4 and live between Vermilion and
Lloydminster, AB. Our 2 daughters are just as horse
crazy as i am. My Husband grew up on a cattle and
grain farm, but he sure has away around the horses.
Our first foal we ever had, Rosco, he Broke himself.
We started raising horses in
2001 and have a few
select mares that we take pride in.
I have been involved
with horses for Years and Years.
I used to Break/Train horses
(now i just break my own).
I Was involved with 4-H for over
10 yrs and was in the Alberta High School Rodeo for 3
yrs, Competing in Barrels, Poles, Breakaway and Team Roping.
Our daughters have been members of 4H now for a few years, and are using our horses that we have raised, and they trained themselves. The girls are very big helpers now, from halter breaking time to starting them to ride. Shawn and I have both been 4h Leaders and love being involved with the program,.
How we came to have our Sire.
Elmo, was brought to me as a 2yr old to be broke. This Gentleman used
to bring 4-6 horses for the summer to be broke. We didnt even know
he was a stallion until we recieved a phone call that they were
coming down to pull DNA off of him. Thats how quiet he was, he stayed
off by himself and never raised a fuss (we thought he was a gelding)lol.
Was by far one of the easiest horses i had ever trained. When they
came to pick him up that fall i mentioned to him that i would like first
dibbs on him if they ever decied to sell. well the next fall i ran into him
at a horse sale and he let me know that they had decided to sell him.
So drove up and made a deal on him. Elmo has been with me ever since.
This guy will be with me forever, he is a "Kids Horse" as u can tell from
his page with my kids crawling all over him. Even in the middle of
Breeding season his "hot" time i can ride him anywhere without much
trouble. We had thought about cutting him when i got him, but as quiet
as he was i thought well i will let him be for awhile. When he was
5/6 we bought our First Broodmare just too see what we would get.
Well in 2002 we recieved our First Foal Rosco. We have never looked
