Out of DLR Aldi by Smedsmo Graen. She is a grey dun little cutie is robustly built but not too heavy should mature to 14 hh. She is great with farrier, leads really well, loads in the trailer, and goes in the wash rack. She will be a ton of fun as a trail horse and she has 3 rideable gaits. I'd love to see this young lady go to a home where she will enjoy a good working life and love the trails. $6500 CAD inc tax and border papers for US buyers. Transport can be arranged.
This lovely man will be 3 this spring. He is out of Lisa (imported Dylan daughter) by Mogly (Bluebird Lane).He is brown dun and will mature just at 14hh and has a lighter build but still possesses ample breed type. He has lovely with 3 exceptional gaits and a very light and uphill way of going. He's really brave and walks over tarps, bridges, water, etc. He loads, leads, ties - wow! Love him. He would excel in a performance home but will really enjoy variety and the trails. $10,000 CAD inc GST and papers for US buyers. Transport can be arranged.
We are really excited to be breeding 3 does this fall. Please email to be on our enquiry/wait list - no deposit required.
Placed Fall 2018 After a rough start in life and bound for the dinner plate, Taika came to us needing basic health care, nutrition, and handling. She nearly stayed her for good but a lovely lady from WA came well recommended and is now her forever mom.
Sold January 2018 ~ Tonka has been a fun addition for us at Footnote Farm but unfortunately hasn't found just the right niche in our lesson program. He loves to jump and be ridden outside. He would do well in a home with a novice with instruction and has an amazing canter and would be a nice first horse for long or short stirrup hunter and equitation riders. His flat work has come a long way so he will also do be fun to take to dressage shows up to First Level. He has amazing potential as a Vaulting horse as he has an easy, rythmic, go forever canter. A special guy!

A lovely filly born to Lisa x Mogly spring 2018.
After an unknown beginning likely as a PMU foal Bucky enjoyed years as a lesson horse at a barn in the South Bay Area near SF. He then enjoyed some time as a low level jumper. He had a catastrophic injury at our farm in CA in 2011 but made the move to Langley despite this. We rehabilitated him but he's working days were on their way to a close. He spent the last couple of years as a lesson horse at A&T equestrian where he was very loved. He finally came home for a few months of freedom and once we could no longer keep him pain free we helped him cross the rainbow bridge.
The angel that was our Donkey .... gone too soon.
If only we had longer sweet William....
My first horse as an adult scrimped and saved for. TB x Holstein.
The most loving and gentle horse to have ever graced my barn. Bred by Annheuser Busch she left her mark on us forever.
A tough mare in a pretty package she taught me a great deal.
Tragically lost too soon.
Peace be wtih this dear girl.
The most beautiful colt - and a draft cross too - that I ever saw born.
