......I have been told many times over my years breeding horses, that I am "ahead of my time". I was told this over 35 years ago , when I started breeding a huge son of Double Bid to the old typey bulldog quarter mares to add a new dimension, look, and way of moving. A decade ago, I was told that again, when the type of Quarter horse I was raising was found interesting to dressage people, and when these horses were put into that sport, it was proven that these quarter horses did indeed, have the mind and movement to compete well in the sport.

It is with great delight and enthusiasm, that I am again going to move forward, and try to develop a line of "Sport Horses" using one of the oldest breed of horses in Europe, (Akhal-Teke) for my paternal line, crossed with one of the oldest North American breeds, the Quarter Horse for the maternal side. I have a good broodmare band developed from exceptional blood noted for their balance, versatility, trainability, and exceptionally good minds. The bloodlines that almost all of my mares carry, was developed by a master breeder (Hank Wiescamp), who was inducted into the AQHA Hall of Fame for breeding exceptional horses of consistent conformation, for over 60 years. The paternal side offers grace, athleticism, astounding movement, and as a bonus, a color that is known for its "metallic" appearance, particularly in the golden tones. "Heavenly Horses" they are known as, for over 3000 years.

It was certainly some divine intervention, when Jolaine Cowherd, a very well known and respected breeder, (around the world) of this very old line of horses, approached me, and offered me, her fine Metallic Gold Bay, Russian stallion, KOLDUNE! I will be selecting a fine group of mares for the court of Koldune, and with Gods grace and will, my resulting product will be of great value to the equestrian world. I hope decades from now, Jolaine and I will be remembered as the pioneers of a whole new line of sport horses, talented, and prize winning in both the hunter and dressage arenas! Because of the depth and history of both breeds, I feel the product will be typey, correct, balanced, and most of all - conformationally consistent. The minds of this line will be such, that youth, amateurs, and just kids of all ages , will find them kind and trainable companions.

I am anxiously awaiting the spring of 2009, when the first foal crop arrives, and the new prototype is unveiled!!
