2000 Paint QH 15.0H
In Your Dreams with Keegan

Dreamer joined the family in 2006 and continues to serve as the respected queen of her herd. Bounced around from place to place before we brought her home, Dreamer was not one for going anywhere off-property. Now a reigning champion in the local jumper arena and consistently a barn favorite for many riders, Dreamer has developed into a confident competitor and a patient teacher.

She has competed and been actively involved in Hunters, Jumpers, Equitation, Trails & Obstacles, Low Cross Country, Fox Hunting, Beach Riding, and more over the years with the opportunities that arise. Truly worth her weight in gold, Dreamer continues her training in good spirits and stands eager for a new adventure when the trailer comes out from around the corner.

Chloe joined the family in 2005 and continues to serve as the respected underdog of the barn. Petite and tiny as a young mare on the track, the racing career of ‘Steaming Anita’ was a short one. Even her pedigree barely describes this fiery little thoroughbred who ended up at a rescue in Pennsylvania before we adopted her. Now a reigning champion in the local jumper arena and always the one to investigate what a human is doing nearby, Chloe has developed into a challenging competitor and enthusiastic ride.

She has competed and been actively involved in Hunters, Jumpers, Equitation, Trails & Obstacles, Low Cross Country, Fox Hunting, Beach Riding, and more over the years with the opportunities that arise. Nicknamed the ‘Special One’, Chloe continues giving us her best performance and attitude when requested.

Mocha joined the family in 2006 and continues to serve as the respective strength of the barn. Passionate and determined, the racing career of ‘Mad About Fontaine’ was cut short due to unknown reasons that landed her at a rescue in Pennsylvania [same as Chloe] before we adopted her. We assume that her medical condition with a floating bone chip in her front right knee is directly related to a fall or injury during training or a race that ended her career. The bone chip occasionally made her uncomfortable in training during her first few years with us in which each case noticed was followed with more time off and veterinarian follow-up. Even with the occasional lameness, Mocha did not let her medical setback hinder her good spirits nor her dedication to her work. Several times a champion in the local hunter and jumper arena, Mocha has developed into a flashy competitor and a trusting partner.

She has competed [at a max cap of 3’ personally set by long-term precaution] and been actively involved in Hunters, Jumpers, Equitation, Trails & Obstacles, Low Cross Country, Fox Hunting, Beach Riding, and more over the years with the opportunities that arise. Beloved by many, Mocha continues to stay strong and loving despite her handicap and she is actually becoming more sound as the years go on.

"I lost my best friend in a horrible accident today. Nala has been in the family since she was a puppy and for all her quirks, she was a beautiful and adorable 10 year old puppy. Thoughts and words are difficult for the time being.

I love you, Nala, and I always will.

Rest In Peace 7.13.2019"

"On Tuesday, January 24th, it was with a heavy heart that our family finally said our goodbyes to our beloved Lucy. Lucy, who was the go-to school horse that joined our family over a decade ago, easily impacted not only my own life as my greatest riding teacher but also countless others. While Dreamer and I learned much together, Lucy was the one that taught me the basics of riding (especially jumping and cantering) during my childhood, let alone staying humble and attentive while riding. Lucy, who was one of the two first horses that we got years ago, has always been a champion in both performance and character and will surely be missed. There was not a pure soul that met her and did not love her. She lived a happy and long life loved by our family and so many others. We knew that as age caught up to her it was only a matter of time before we would find ourselves saying goodbye to this amazing horse. And age well, she did with grace as she did everything else. We gave her our best and she returned it tenfold. She gave us no signs of any pain or fear to worry or stress us when it was time. She went peacefully and for that I am eternally grateful.

Having been home for winter break and being able to spend more time with her gives me comforting memories to hold onto. She's had a relaxing last few months with an easy retirement with part-time extra loving from a small children's program. She's been the happiest old girl that you ever saw and always expected treats upon arrival. Seeing and grooming her over this winter break would easily make my day and as hard as it is to let her go, I am glad that she is finally at peace (especially before the brute of another winter).

I love you, Lucy. We all do. And I've no doubt that Shannon is ecstatic to have you again and to look after you for us.

Rest in peace ♥ "

"My first true partner-in-crime. From costume dress-ups to the in-home agility racing, Cocoa was on board every step of the way. While she was protective of her family towards strangers and unknown men, Cocoa was the puppy who adored being tucked in every night and simply being loved. She lived a long and happy life where age eventually caught up to her. "
