Question for Breeders

Hi guys! I have a nice mare by Belle Flaire and out of a 3/4 sister to Legacy’s Viking; she has had one foal before.  I am interested in leasing her out as a broodmare to a responsible party with a plan for the resulting foal and who is not just breeding to breed. Obviously,…

W/T hunt horse

We’re currently in search of an OKC caliber W/T hunt horse. Rider is average height, a fairly confident (but not SUPER experienced) rider. We would like to find something finished and ready to take to whatever show we’re headed to next. Geldings are better than mares, color not important, western prospect would be a bonus….

Horse Show Wire e-magazine

Have you guys seen this yet? http://www.horseshowwire.com/HorseShowTimes/spring2011/index.html It’s a new online-only magazine for the Morgan show world. No subscription fee and the ads are a lot cheaper than the paper magazines.
