We fondly refer to Hydro as our gentle giant. This English shire/quarter horse mix came to us from a ranch in Utah as a teenager, and everyone simply adores him.
With the height of an English shire and speed of a quarter horse, Hydro is a mixed breed who possesses the ultimate in power and grace. He’s the king of our ranch, and it’s good to be king. Just ask him.
Annie, our lead mare, is a quarter horse who would be an excellent sprinter if she weren’t so busy flirting

Red, our flower child, is a sorrel pony who’s a copper-red shade of chestnut. You can often find him in his own little world—off alone observing the action from afar.
Jasper (left) is a curious buckskin who’s constantly getting into things, while Jeter (right) is a sweet bay roan who loves getting pampered.
