Our 180 acre farm ranges from grasslands and hay meadows to bordering woodlands comprised of tall oaks and cedars. Several ponds and clear running creeks provide fresh water most of the year. The environment is conducive for grazing both cattle  and sheep, yet provides a natural habitat for abundant deer and turkey. The cattle operation consists of a commercial cow/calf herd along with backgrounded yearling Angus heifers.  These Angus heifers are primarily used for stockdog training.  Fall weather in the Ozarks brings warm days and cool nights that are perfect for the fall calving season. Our calf crop is usually marketed in the spring when grass pastures become green and lush.  

Katahdin sheep are hardy, adaptable sheep that produce superior lamb crops and lean, meaty carcasses. They are a breed of hair sheep (do not produce fleece) that require no shearing. The breed is ideal for pasture lambing and grass/forage based management systems. Katahdins are docile, easy to handle, and exhibit moderate flocking instincts. They compliment our grazing program and are highly valuable in our stockdog training.

Quarter Horses have always been an enormous part of our lives. Over the past 30 years we have owned, trained, and shown this versatile breed in many venues- halter, western pleasure, cutting, working cow horse, and reining.  We now feel privileged to own and show horses that carry some of the best bloodlines in the reining industry today. It has become a family affair that we all thoroughly enjoy. We also occasionally have reiners for sale!
