Quite a bit of time has gone by since the last update, and there are many things to share!
Singlefoot Farms has Mini Mania!
First off, I would like to welcome the newest member of the herd – Nostalgia’s Keno. Keno is a miniature gelding who is just a complete ham. He has been driven extensively and later today we will be hitching him with my new cart! He’s a splash bay who is just absolutely precious. My eventual plan is to break Mac to drive and use them as a pair to do some basic farm work.
It has been a dream of mine since I was about 8 years old to have my own driving horse, but my old pony was retired by the time I got a cart. So it stayed a dream, until now. I finally decided to just go ahead and bit the bullet and purchased a nice harness from Comfyfit and a cart from GS Carts in Iowa. I am very pleased with the quality and cannot wait until we get to hitch him today!
I am so pleased to have my adorable pair of minis together now and I think they make a fine addition to the herd here at the farm.
Zero Gravity and Mid-Summer’s Night sold last summer and fall, respectively. They are both doing fabulously in their new homes and I am still able to see Roxie at the shows. She has picked up a few blues with her fabulous rider, Zoni. I am so excited that I can keep an eye on that pair!
Bailey went home with Donna, who purchased Darby last year. He is growing and maturing and doing fantastically.
We are now at the herd we wish to be at for now, but we still have access to plenty of well trained horses for sale through our friend, Stoner Ridge Farm. I am more than happy to answer any questions as I have ridden nearly all of their sales horses extensively. Robert has an excellent training philosophy and consistently turns out beautifully trained, soft horses with a great gait. Please call me at 859.771.7555 if you have any questions!
Desert Sands and Warmth
In January, I was able to make the trek back to Arizona to visit my two favorite desert Rockies and their owner, Tamara. I was able to hit the trails on both horses and get to ride some gorgeous QH as well. It was a fabulous trip and wonderful reprieve in the midst of a disgusting and cold winter.
I have decided that one day, Singlefoot Farms will relocate to the warm sands of Arizona. The business plan will include a tack store (you can see our online tack store Spur Stop Tack for our sales now), and a boarding barn. I am very excited to work towards this goal and will provide more information when I can!
