Meet Blue - my "baby" boy!  Blue appears to be full of that baby innocence and curiosity, but he is grown up so don't let him fool you!   He is a smarty pants and quite the clown! Blue has been with me since he was a yearling. This is his forever home.  L'Azure Soleil is an American Saddlebred.

Meet my lovely red thoroughbred (TB), Skylar.  Skylar is a sweet TB trained through 4th level dressage with some eventing experience. Skylar is settling into life at Cedar Breeze, having arrived in December 2014. Skylar (registered as Against The Wind) is a sweet Thoroughbred. Skylar is a unicorn and my wonder horse

Denmark Oman, the love of my life, had to cross the Rainbow Bridge June 9, 2015.   A regal and perfect gentleman, he awed everyone with his softness. My sweetest boy left this world eating clover and was buried amongst clover, forever being in clover. Denmark Oman was a 29 year old American Saddlebred. We spent 26 years together. He was a once in a lifetime horse and I was so lucky he was in my life.  
Rest In Clover My Love

My beloved Dude had to cross the rainbow bridge November 17, 2014. May he RIP. Dude and Denmark were best friends and Dude was an incredibly funny and talented horse. His earthly remains grace my farm and I miss him very much. .   Button Down Dude was a loved 26 year old foundation American Quarter Horse.
