All of our mares are started under saddle before they become a part of our broodmare herd.

Paulie Ebony
1986  Brown/Black Mare
By Ebony Light out of Hobar Paulie

"Ebony" carries all of Dad's foundation stallions, Leo Lightning, Horatio and Dixie Jr. She also shows Dad's first horse, Candy, on her bottom side and Little Sug, his first registered Quarter Horse. When Kristy and I look at Ebony's pedigree, we see a long history of our family breeding quarter horses. Our friends the Baakes sent her back to us to retire at Horse Creek. So far she is still eager to be a broodmare and foaled on April 1, 2008 a brown filly, named Coco who is by Dukes Golden Legacy. Ebony is wonderful with the boys and other children eager to meet her foal. She has a special place here at the ranch!

Paulies Lil Dixie is a striking filly with an awesome conformation. As all our colts do, she wants to be where we are and is extremely attentive. Her brothers and sisters are used for ranch work, breeding, barrels, poles, flags and trail. She is a very versatile horse with patience, speed and the know how needed in a great performance horse. In addition to Kristy's program of working with the young horses, she received 75 days professional training with Johnie Clem.
