Say hello to the littles!! These are a few of our young stock. Mostly fillies but 2 colts as well. There are two black bay yearling geldings and one more jet black yearling stud colt that aren't pictured here. I haven't taken new ones since they grew big and shiney this summer. Our ladies need to find a home, Some one to train them, love them and make something of them. There is apparently not enough interest in Mares to justify spending my time on them so they are either untouched, or haven't been used in years. But take a good look at the lines on these gals and tell me they won't make a great ride. If you want them halter broke the price will increase, but as is they are priced to move. Call your local horse trainer, grab some cash and come pick one out!

Same two fillies below, they're just cute. 1(bay) and almost 2 years(grey)

pretty Spook. Proven brood mare, arab/andalusian cross. Broke to ride, a fun ride but head shy so the bridal needs to be unbuckled. Thats how she got her name

This big fattie needs to work. Proven brood mare.She's wearing chucks brand so she must be broke, but I havent tried her yet. I don't know how she rides, But she looks like a powerhouse

Rasta is a 2 year old, tall and better balenced than she looks in the pic. Her Dam Jodi is a pretty, big, black mare that was a pleasure to train and is very sweet and willing

This mare is 3 or 4. Its a mystery who her dam is, forgotton in the shuffle, but most likely the big black mare above. Good looking lady!

yearling bay filly

Apple and a dark grey.

yearling Chestnut stud colt

yearling Sorrel stud colt

coming 2 years, will be a deep steel grey, should mature into a solid mare.

This is Apple! 3 years old, short and sturdy, beautiful buckskin(ish) roan. Have her trained for a kids pony.I can just imagine her teaching little girls how to post and jump.

3 years old. lovely dapple grey. She's one of 2 that are almost twins. she's super friendly and curious.

3 years old. Very similar to the above filly, but darker grey. well built and wants to be friendly if the other fillies would give her a chance.

This is Crow. Hes a 5 yr old Traveler/Andalusian gelding. He is a beautiful boy! Flashy and Sassy! About 15.1 hh. I think he is a good show prospect, but if you just want to trail ride, you'll have the prettiest horse on the trail. I put him in an eggbutt snaffle because he has a very soft mouth and it's more than enough to stop and turn him. He was pretty shy when we started, but after only 3 workouts he's mellowed out a lot, So I think with some hours under a light handed rider he'd be perfect. This is my kind of horse, a little hot, sensitive, responsive, smooth, something you really have to ride. I look forward to our schooling sessions and I think he's starting to as well.

This is Tuff. He is a 5 yr old Montana traveler gelding. He's got a lot of zip, and great balance, so he may be a real cutting or barrel prospect. He's quiet, friendly, and curious. In the few short rides we've had together he's tuned into me nicely. I only expect him to improve! He is Leroys full little brother, about 15 hh, and a nice chestnut with gold highlights. A bath would turn him into a bronze statue. He's too smart for beginners, but an experienced rider would have a blast with this horse.

This Is Ringo. He is the newest employee of the Wytana Livestock Co. Congrats to Mike and Sarah. I hope He'll give you years of faithful service. I hope also that the filly( not pictured) gives you a pleasant challenge, she's a smart cookie, but a sweet one. You obviously have great taste in horses:) I plan on posting pictures tonight of Tuff and Crow, 5 yr old geldings, Hopefully before they've sold;)

I can't rope. At all. I was aiming at the post in front of me, caught the poor fellow behind me.

No new photo's today, but I want to send my congratulations and appreciation to Kristina and Melissa, who have bought Buddy( renamed Cadence, I like it!) and Peanut. I wish you both a long, happy partnership with your new horses. I'll miss them, but I feel like they are placed with the best possible people. There will be new photos soon of other geldings we've brought in to be ridden, and of some nice fillies we have out back. Check back soon!
thanks, Sarah

Ginger after our ride. Sorry if the blog is a little goofy, new posts go on top so sometimes the info is kinda backward. Scroll Down for more on Ginger and Peanut. :)

This is Ginger. She is a 7/8 yr old Montana Traveler mare. Approx. 14.1 HH. I broke this pretty little chestnut as a 3 yr old. I can't remember if that was 4 or 5 years ago. I never had any trouble with her and we did all kinds of arena work and rode up in the mountians near my home.She is soft and gentle and an absolute beauty! We took her out of the big pasture today, same as Peanut (below) and she let us halter her and load her with no resistance at all. This impresses me because as far as I know no one has messed with her since I brought her back to Chucks 4 or 5 years ago. She was quiet and content for the serious grooming/ detangeling session before we rode and she was co-operative for her feet and saddle. She remembered her ground work well. After a moment of nerves when I went to get on her, (nothing nasty, just a little dancing around) she settled right down and went to work for me. She was working her bit alot, so I'm sure the Tom Thumb I put her in was to much, but she still worked well with no serious upset. I'll put together an egg-butt snaffle to fit her pretty little head next time, so she is more comfortable. I'm confident that with a week or so of tune up this mare will be trail ready!

This is Peanut. He's a 10 yr. old quarter horse gelding, approx. 14hh. He is smart and curious, and is the first to come to see whats going on. He has been ridden off and on for years. Today we drove out to the big section, put a halter on him and loaded him up in the trailer.He seemed excited to do something.The first time I rode him, I was under the impression that he was broke but needed a tune up, so I was a bit frustrated with what I saw as his unwilingness to try for me. I called Chuck to talk about this and was told that Peanut was in fact not broke at all, not even to saddle. So this sweet stubborn little thing wasn't refusing me, he just had no idea what I wanted! We got along much better after that. Besides being overweight from years on pasture at his leisure, he is a handsome little thing. His left ear is slightly mis-shapen, but I find it endearing. Im hoping to find the perfect partner for Peanut, some teeaged child or smaller adult, that can appreciate his laid back, and in your pocket attitude.

Buddy. 6 yr old gelding. He's got alot of morgan in him. He's alot of horse so not for beginners, but he's a really nice ride. Willing to work, and seems to enjoy our little schooling sessions. He reins well and works off your leg cues. He's currently my favorite( don't tell my mare) He's shy till he gets to know you so he needs a partner, a friend and a job.

This huge fellow is Mighty Rich. ( Chuck named him Richard, bllghh, fine for a man, but for a horse??) He's probably close to 17 hh. He's just beginning his re-education. I'm not sure who put the first 30 days on him but hes generaly terrified of people. He has made big improvements in the last week, so I have a lot of hope for him. He leads and lunges well, stands tied and is good with his feet he can be saddled and we're working now on serious sacking out and learning to trust one another. If there is a special person out there that can give him a chance, he has huge potential.

Leroy. 9 yr. old gelding. Very smooth, gaited. I'll have some video hopefully soon, but I'll have to figure out how to do it. Im a horsie girl, not a techi one.

Danny. He's a sweetie, walks out well, but not so gaited:) More of a stock type horse. He's somewhere in between green and seasoned. He likes to be laid back, but is willing to work. fantistic trot, comfortable all around.
