As much as it pains me to halt my oh-so-rewarding breeding program … it is the end of an era for me. I am finally ready to spend more time riding with my friends, and hopefully bringing along a bridle horse or two – things there simply hasn’t been enough time for, with so many foals & young stock to school. I know it will be a painful adjustment, and that I will miss watching youngsters cavorting about. At the same time though, I look forward to an increase in time spent on the trail, and to continuing both my own, and my horses’ education.
With this decision finally made, some of these amazing broodmares may be available for sale.

NVS Mi Sonnetta
Sonnetta spent several years as my primary mountain partner, from working on cattle drives to leading pack strings, and even being IN my pack string sometimes. We have such a wonderful history together! She even stars in a couple of the stories on my “articles” page, on this website.
Standing just over 14 hands, Sonnetta is small in stature – but she is completely fearless. Not only will she go anywhere and do anything, she does it with style and flair. Sonnetta really IS a powerhouse of energy, and spirit. Interestingly enough, all of her adult get have grown to become a full hand taller than she is.
I often tell people that the Sonnetta/Surfer cross is magic. I have to say this doesn’t seem to change – her foals are completely amazing in every way. Sonnetta foaled her last baby for me in Spring of 2019 – a gorgeous buckskin filly – JaF Sunrise Mtn Venture.
Aurora and Surfer together make wonderfully stout, smart, and super well- put-together colts. Aurora has had 2 identical palomino colts so far, and is bred back for a March 2018 foal. Aurora will be retired from breeding after 2018, to once again become the wonderful riding horse she is. She will be for sale.
