It is with great sadness that we have lost Thanks For Com En.  He began his battle to live when he broke his shoulder as a yearling.  He had been suffering from supporting leg laminitis since before we had purchased him.  Through the years, Thanks showed us how much fight and willpower he had by overcoming all odds to live on virtually three legs for thirteen years. 

We would like to thank all the wonderful professionals who helped make Thanks' life as long and as pain free as they did.
  • Dr. Ric Redden
  • Dr. Ryan Rothenbuhler
  • Dr. Ron Conley
  • Jason Wiseman - Farrier
  • Lance Kendrick - Farrier

We are fortunate enough to have two colts that we hope to campaign to take up where Thanks left off.

"Thanks" was a 17 hh sorrel overo, sired by See Me Com En and out of a lovely Thoroughbred mare named Miss Oaks.  He is registered with the Jockey Club, the American Paint Horse Association, Pinto Horse Association of America, and also has his Quarter Horse T number.  As a result, we are able to breed Paints, Quarter Horses, and Thoroughbreds, without any snags with registration.  We are also offering a live color guarantee on all mares he stands to, (including Quarter Horses).  "Thanks" is OLWS negative, which means that he can be bred to any mare without the worry of a lethal white foal.

It is my pleasure to report that his foals have been more successful than anyone could have ever imagined in the show pen.  His foals have seen success in the APHA, AQHA and NSBA rings.  He now lays claim to an APHA world champion, multiple APHA reserve world champions, multiple top ten placings at the NSBA World Show, multiple top tens at the APHA world show, two top fives at the Southern Belle, and two Top Tens at the All American Quarter Horse Congress.  There are also numerous other APHA, PtHA, AQHA, and futurity wins to his credit.  This speaks particularly highly of him as a sire, as his book has been very limited.  In fact, we only breed a handful of mares to him annually to insure that the market is not saturated with foals.  The result has been a high demand for the quality he passes on and a small number of foals that remain very marketable.

He is a beautiful example of the hunter type: tall, sweepy, deep-hocked, and fluid moving.  He floats along with grace that you wouldn't think possible from such a large horse.  This quality of movement was the key factor in his fourth place finish in the 3 Year Old Hunter Under Saddle Challenge at the APHA World Show in 2003.  Please give us a call to request the full video of this spectacular performance, or click on the links below to view some clips of his canter and trot.  You have to see it to believe it!

Congratulations to Sarah Meier for all her success at the AQHA shows.  She and George have accrued points in Novice Amateur Hunter Under Saddle, Novice Amateur Equitation, Amateur Showmanship and Amateur Horsemanship, including a first place in Equitation at the AQHA Regional Experience in Ohio out of a field of over 40 horses.  This is especially notable since Sarah has done the training herself. 

This fall, look for Sarah and George at the All American Quarter Horse Congress in Novice Amateur Hunter Under Saddle, Novice Amateur Equitation, Amateur Horsemanship and Amateur Showmanship.  Next year, we hope to also see her showing George at the major APHA events as well.

Tango was top ten at the All American Quarter Horse Congress in 2011 in the hunter longe line. He was trained by his owner, amateur Jan Hare. Jan says "he is a joy to work with and very trainable."

 

Good Tim En Thanks

Becky McDaniel purchased Peyton from the farm earlier this year.  After taking him home, she continued his training in Lunge Line.  From the beginning she has been impressed with Peyton's trainability and raw talent. 

She also has had success in the show ring, accruing points in Lunge Line as a hunt seat horse.  Becky also showed in the Blue Ridge Quarter Horse Association futurity, and placed second right behind his brother and former pasture-mate.

Continue to look for this inseparable team.  Becky shows and trains Peyton herself, and has racked up 31 APHA points with limited showing.  Look for them at the paint shows in the Midwest.

Thanks For Control

MacGregor has made a big impression on judges and competitors alike.  MacGregor was foaled on our farm in 2007 and sold to Margie Taylor as a weanling.  In April 2008, Margie put him in training with the goal of Jim taking him to show in the Southern Belle Invitation.  Jim brought home two top five placings and compliments from competitors.

Later in 2008, Margie showed MacGregor in the NSBA Non-Pro Hunter Lunge Line at the Blue Ridge Quarter Horse Association Futurity, and Jim showed him in the NSBA Open Hunter Lunge Line.  They were futurity champions in both classes.

MacGregor went on to place top five again at the 2009 Southern Belle in the two year old Hunter Under Saddle. He now resides at Margie's farm in Virginia where he is being prepared for the USEF events.  We hope to see him show soon over fences.
