Woodrow is a monster! He is a blue papered Missouri Fox Trotter with an amazingly smooth fox trot and rocking horse lope. He is black tobiano and stands a very stocky 15.3. Woodrow is Ted's horse. He's the first horse Ted ever really enjoyed riding. It is because of Woodrow that I have shared some of the most wonderful trail rides of my life with my husband. Woodrow is an excellent trail horse half the time and has anxiety issues the other half. We're working on it.

|ClaireAnna picked the name "The Grinch" for Cindy's first colt two years before it was born. Funny how he was born with a Grinch on his face!|
|ClaireAnna with her Grinch as a weanling. He is such a gorgeous fellow!|
|This is the very first time ClaireAnna was ever on the Grinch's back. This is after his first 30 days of training by Lydia Carter, who did an excellent job starting him.|

Elvis is a registered mini that I found on Craigslist. Johnnie is also registered and was a surprise from Ted that he found for me at the local horse auction. They are both geldings and about the same age and size. They are buddies and are sweet, gentle minis we plan to train to lead line and eventually pull a cart. The girls love to groom them at our petting zoos. I think they are adorable!
Now this is the horse we never should have sold. Alex is Glori's son. He is a bucksin tobiano, registered, Tennessee Walking Horse/ Spotted Saddle Horse. This is the horse I could be riding right now! Dumb. Dumb. Dumb. At the time, we had too many horses and I was unaware that gaited was going to be so important to me in the near future. We got an offer on him and sold him as a yearling. He was a sweetie!
