I came to really respect this man as a horseman and breeder in the 45 minutes we were with him. I won't lie, I asked a TON of questions, including questions regarding why he chose to keep Leannan a stallion, why he gelded others, etc. and I was incredibly impressed. He truly cares about the quality of his horses and this year didn't even breed any of his mares because of the market and the economy. He's definitely not just breeding these horses because they're pretty and because he can generally get a good price. He carefully pairs mares with stallions so that the resulting foal has a high likelihood of good temperment, conformation, AND talent. His horses are definitely an example of that. Now for pictures!
One of Leannan's foals, a colt. He's greying out and I'm sure will be stunning when he's a dapple grey/white tobiano!
3 y/o gelding out of one of their homozygous tobiano mares.
Closer picture of the greying-out colt. XD He just wanted to eat.
Donkey! And Kodiak in the background, who is not owned by the BO.
-drool- Leannan on his way over with a gelding friend.
I freaking love him, oh my gosh.
Gelding friend again! His name is Glendalough (glen-da-lock).
One of the broodmares. She colicked a few months ago and then developed laminitis, so she's being treated for that and gets to walk on sand.
His horses really love him. You could definitely tell.
