The guy who started it all. Flame has been in my life for 25 years and when my husband and I decided to move and build our farm, I'm 98% sure it was all because of this guy (plus, since I was a little girl, I never dreamed of my wedding but always dreamed of my farm). He turned 30 in July (2020) and is enjoying his retirement out in the field with his friends.
Flame needed a buddy when he first moved to our farm in 2016. Disco arrived a day later than Flame. We got Disco through Flying Changes Equine Rescue. Disco and Flame quickly became BFFs. Disco was the perfect trail horse and my "Steady Eddy". We could go out on a trail in a halter and bareback and he was so awesome. We lost Disco in June 2020 to colic. He was so amazing and gone too soon.
Hubs needed a horse to add to the crew. We found this dude. Hubs loves Smokey and the Bandit and felt that this horse needed to be named after Sheriff Buford T. Justice. Okey Doke. Here's Buford aka Buffy, Buff Buff, Boop-a-doo, Puff, Pufford..... (don't we all have a million nicknames for our animals?)
My mom has always been fascinated with Bashkir Curly Horses. Since I was a little girl, I always remember her talking about them. We made that dream a reality when we were adding to the farm. He is such a cool horse and forever will have the nickname "Baby" no matter how old he is! We got Hidden Cave Quinn at 8 months old from an amazing Curly Horse breeder in Kentucky. Check out Hidden Cave Ranch Curly Horses.
Needed another Arabian added to the mix. And, get a gray horse, they say.... The sweetest, in your pocket, filthy swamp creature you will ever meet. I promise gray or light colored horses know that they are prone to mud and manure stains. Just sayin'. Love you Oats.
The Goats... Such a quirky and hilarious addition to the farm. Ollie (solid) and Finn (Tri-colored). These two keep us laughing CONSTANTLY!
We love our birds. Have 20 something hens and a pair of guinea fowl. I have become kind of a crazy chicken lady...
