Blomke was a Dressage show horse, exhibition & parade horse, and an Ambassador for the Friesian breed and our Horses 4 Heroes program.

BLOMKE passed in late October of 2012 due to a very rare situation.  Her ceceum inverted on itself & entered her intestine.  What began as a mild colic, turned into a simple surgery with good prognosis, ended in me having to put her to rest with no possible way to cure her, or any explanation of how or why such things occur.  My heart broke deeply that day, and it will be a long time in healing, though she will always be an important part of me.  If there is one horse in my life that could be my "daughter" in horse form, it was my beloved Blommes.
Zada was purchased from One Pond Ranch as a weanling.  Carrie Blair had already done the imprinting, and then introduced me to the filly.  She is a Dressage prospect and future broodmare for Friesian cross breeding.  Zada has had her ground work done, including basic driving.  She has not taken to breeding with AI, so we are holding out to see if she will take live cover.

We have plans to find a way to use her in our healing programs.

Mares at Wind Dancer Ranch
She is 15H, and produces progeny of similar heights, not dependant on the sire. She throws the black gene.  Star is trained in English Flat, small jumps, Dressage (training level), Western Pleasure and Trail.  She has been trained extensively in ground work. She loves children and has been used in riding lessons since 2007.  She has been shown in all the above disciplines and always places in open local shows. She is warm and friendly, obedient, willing, easy going and happy.  She is a “boss mare” in a herd. She has been raised among dogs, cats and other animals. She has had a wide range of experiences out on the trail and traveling.  She loads like a dream and loves to go for any adventure.  She is used to stalls, corrals, pens and pasture. She is easy to catch. She can be ridden shod or barefoot.  She stands quiet for the farrier. She has only had two owners, the breeder and myself.  Star is retired from breeding, semi-retired from showing, but still a priceless lesson horse. See our SERVICES page for details on taking a lesson or having her part of your Birthday party.

She was purchased at 4yrs old pregnant and shipped from Holland, and had her first colt, Raaf 8/9/05. See Stallion section.  She was raised by a Dutch family, but was not imprinted.  She is a gorgeous modern type studbook mare, who suffered an injury to her right hind/hip when she was young & it went untreated. I was advised she would go lame & be unridable.  I put her to Dressage, & she we did a few shows,I removed shoes, & she is naturally trimmed & barefoot. She is under chiropractic & accupunture maintenance. Anke is a happy horse who is feeling well & confident enough to be one of our Horses 4 Heroes Ambassadors & my personal Cotume Riding Demo horse.

Anke performed well at the Fairfield Dressage Show fall 2013 and got 2 2nd and a 3rd after not having shown in nearly two years!

"Karalyn's Star Princess" D.O.B 5/3/2000 APHA#588767 This mare is the 4th foal of “Star” (see mare's page) and sired by APHA stallion Mikante Ihoka.  She was imprinted and cared for as described on our home page from before her birth.  She has been hand raised and trained.  She has excellent ground manners and ground work.  She has been taught to carry riders in the basics and has matured well to 14.3H.  She is easy to work with, has a great work ethic and willing attitude, but is spunky and fun.  She is very loyal.  She is graceful.  Easy to catch, load, tie,vet and farrier.  She has never had any illness, colic or surgery. She has been naturally trimmed and never shod.  She has only had one owner, myself. She is being groomed for use in our therapy programs.  She is a wonderful example of using herbs to heal, she went thru a barb wire fence to defend her daughter against a stallion who had gotten loose and tore herself up badly in her legs, chest & face.  We cleaned the wound with comfrey tea, and then put raw honey on it. She then drank the entire bowl ( about 1 gallon) of the tea.  Everyday we repeated the same treatment of her wounds, until she was healed.  Not one stitch and she has healed with no scarring. We will be adding pics soon.
