"The real deal right out of the heart of the State of Kentucky. Born and bred in them there hills and trail ridden his whole life! The boy is solid, dependable and willing. Business minded---no nonsense or testing his rider. In one of my posted videos you can see in Joe's eyes that he is about to be going to work....calm, gentle and ready to do so. 15 hands high and well built. His gaits are very natural and the longer you ride him the smoother he gets. Frankly, Joe is everything a pleasure/trail riders needs. Ride him in the back, middle or front...he don't care. Forty-eight hundred dollars buys him and you got yourself a dandy!

"If you will take a moment to watch the videos of Roi Roy,( registered name). Moonshine, (nick name), you will see a horse you, I, and everyone else wishes they could own. 11 years old and the horse that, according to the father of the 13 year old girl riding Moonshine in the photos I have posted, "Moonshine taught my daughter how to ride!" If you don't know how to ride, Moonshine could teach you as well! Copper Palomino with looks that will take your breath away! I really don't need to say more!"

"I do not know what more a person could want in a smaller trail horse. Ricky the Rocky is just plain fabulous! He does everything you ask him to do. We are putting guest and novice riders on him and he has not made a bubble! Some folks come here and make false negative assumptions about horses without even throwing a leg over them and riding the darn horse! Promise ya.......there is no negative to be found in this handsome fellow! Come ride Ricky on the trail and you'll see how he'll stack up! We have put many a mile on this guy and he is a dream! You want a chocolate, shiny flaxen mane & tail Rocky Mountain?........ Here he is! A guest and his wife came with some customers and they both took Ricky out for a long trail ride. The husband came back and said about Ricky, "I give him an "A" ! "A" for his looks! "A" for temperament. "A" for safe! Forget all that goofy non-sense about a horse needing to be 8-10 years old to be safe. My goodness............come ride Ricky!"

"Ginger is a great little riding horse. Not a thing in the world wrong with her. She'll go where ever you point her in a most willing way. Kid broke and ideal for the smaller rider. The only thing that Ginger does which may not be a problem to many folks is she is an eater and likes to stick her neck through a with fence and nibble on vegetation outside the fence. In doing so she sometimes breaks the wire fence and gets out. If she is confined inside a welded pipe fence, wooden fence or turned out in a pasture with grass there is of course no concern. Many of our customers don't have wire fencing so it is nothing to worry about. So, here is the deal.......I'll sell this little sweetheart for $1,800 and we will all ride off in the sunset together! OK?

"Dance, is Twin Ponds Ranch's, Mane Gal. Yes indeed, her mane measures an astonishing length of 32" long! The naming of this beautiful horse was inspired by the 2000 CMA Song of the Year, sung by Lee Ann Womach. I happened to be sitting in the 5th row of the Country Music Awards when Lee Ann Womach, backed up by the Sons of the Desert, preformed that winning song. How did an 'ol horse trader from the Rocky Mountain west get to be sitting up with the performers, you ask? Well, that story might better be told around a campfire and a few cold ones! Besides good looks and a pleasant name, Dance is an outstanding trail horse. Viewing the videos and photos I have posted should convince you of that! Deep water, steep hills and a whole head full of sense make this a horse you should consider purchasing! With a horse like Dance, you will never fear those mountains in the distance. Never settle for the path of least resistance. Now you have the choice to sit it out or dance.
I hope you dance........I hope you dance."

"Customers like to know about a horses past history and I certainly understand that. So, here goes......I purchased Gold Nugget about a year ago from a fellow who was in the process of a divorce. He told me Gold Nugget was a horse he and his wife owned for last four years. Since filing for divorce, he got Gold Nugget and his former wife got the registration papers! (Actually, he didn't say his former wife...used another word to describe her!) Anyways, Gold Nugget is suppose to be a registered Tennessee Walker and I have no doubts about her breed. After owning Gold Nugget for a couple of months, I got a phone call from a women in South Carolina that wanted her and another palomino mare I had as well. I received a deposit check and since I had already planned a trip to go back east, I offered to deliver. The check for the balance, however, bounced not once but twice. We all have to pay our bills, so I had Gold Nugget and her pasture mate repossessed and brought back to New Mexico. Now, being the kind wonderful mare that Gold Nugget is, it didn't take long for a nice lady from Corrales, New Mexico to come along and buy Gold Nugget. Lady loved Gold Nugget but guess what? While in South Carolina, Gold Nugget was bred!! That was news to me until I got a phone call from my customer in Corrales, New Mexico! Oh-Dear! Now the lady in Corrales does not have property for a young colt. So I traded another mare for Gold Nugget and Jesse James. Gorgeous, smooth gaited, lovable, easy to catch, stands to get on or off either side and experienced! I will sell her by herself or together with Jesse James."

"Cutest little fart to place a hoof west of the Mississippi River in a hundred years! (In my opinion). Socialized? On My Goodness........he'll run across a big pasture to see you. Absolutely loves people! Well-started on halter. Goes in wash bay and horse trailers. This guy is going to be a big boy. Just born in March and look at his size. He is gaited and extremely athletic. Ready for new home and it won't be long til he'll be ready to ride. Can ya imagine working all day and come home to a little dude like this? Now that's living!

"All right...........Stop the music! Attention Center Stage.........Hamilton is about to show you something you don't see everyday! OK, now that I have you asking, What is the big deal? Well I'll show you by watching the videos of this superb horse. Sweet, kind, gentle and friendly..........yes indeed, I may well have your best buddy in my barn. Hamilton's color is unique . He is a chocolate roan with dark points and Boy-Oh-Boy is he smooth in several gears. Hamilton wouldn't hurt a flea but he can roll and he should be owned by someone that would enjoy his abilities. Ya don't need to be an 18 year old barrel racer or rough stock rider to safely ride Hamilton. If you are driving down the Interstate and the posted speed limit is 75 MPH and your speedometer reads 60, you probably shouldn't come try him out. I had some Amish fellows ride Hamilton for me for several weeks before I brought him out to my New Mexico Twin Ponds Ranch and they all told me this is one of the best horse they have had in for training in a many a years! Yes, Hamilton is just three and a half years old and if that scares the Bejesus out of you, that is cool with me. However, the person who is lucky enough (or smart enough) to buy Hamilton, will be getting praises and accolades about his or her horse for twenty plus years to come. This boy is gonna WOW ya!

"Daisy is her name. Name implies pleasant thoughts. Well, in the case of this Daisy mare, you can keep your pleasant thoughts..................she is a good one indeed! For the folks that believe every mare is marish, I won't be able to change your mind. But, for the people that have an open mind on the subject and can evaluate an individual horse and not generalize, they will find an exceptionally nice, kind, sweet, saddle horse. Besides all of the other attributes she has, ya get a ton of chrome to go with her! this gal beautiful! Friendly as well....catch her any where. Good with other horses! Worth far more that what I am asking!! Come and get her.......not a horse you'll find on every corner!"
