These are the only pictures I have so far but there will be many more to come!
I can't wait to see where this amazing mare takes me and I will always have you to thank!
We plan on showing her consistently starting in January and know she will rock!! He exceeds our expectations, and lucky we found him as Chap stole Whiskey / "HOKU" from me.
Around December 2023, I had the pleasure of meeting a very nice older lady that loves to barrel race. He took me as far as he could without any hesitation. The last few months Scarlett and I have been spending a lot of arena time. She gets along really well at the barn with all the other horses and is so much fun to ride.A previous accident on a different horse had her nervous and weary of racing any horse except a horse she shared with her grand daughter. He was consistently running 18s on barrels and on New Years Day I was able to race him one last time. His fastest time yet :) It's been a few months and I have been promising pics of Scarlett for your website. Thank you so much for the time you took with me when I was looking for a forever horse. I love my mare to the moon and back and as soon as my truck gets fixed haha, we will be hitting the trails. I just wanted to pass a few pictures along of Flicka (Sedona) since we have had her. She has been the best horse and has been more than we could have hoped for.Just wanted to let you know Mr Perfect has been perfect. Great with all the water crossings, steep trails, downed trees and rough terrain. I can't begin to tell how blessed I have been to be able to ride some of your amazing horses, such as Gunner and Trigger, in the Lost Dutchhman Days rodeo and the Roots N Boots Rodeo. They sure loved all the attention from the little girls and boys as well!He took the trip well - as an Equine vets wife you have seen all kinds of things that can go wrong! I did what you suggested, for now forget the ground work and just ride. The rest of our group was really impressed with the new horse. I wanted to let you know how pleased I was with Sid selling so quick for me. I wanted Sid to get a good home and it sounds like you did that. Sherry you are an outstanding credit to the horse industry. Sherry, you are one of my best friends, my inspiration, coach and mentor.Your vast knowledge of horses combined with your sincere and honest business practices made the purchase and transition so smooth, thank you so much! We started competing at Eastside Progressive Barrel Racing Association the same year.
At the end of the season, we had placed 1st and won a buckle in barrels, and 4th in poles to win a trophy halter. I had run 24s the first couple races and those quickly became 19s.
We started hitting NBHAs and other gymkhanas the next year as well as continue to run Eastside. In 2009 I ended up taking a break from riding, leaving Lucky and my other horse in a pasture for about 4 months.
Lucky took every event in stride, switching patterns with ease and bringing home 3 more buckles, another halter and a wall of ribbons over the next couple years. After my life settled down I couldn't wait to get back in the saddle! Between lessons, birthday parties, and leasers, him and I continued to add ribbons to our growing collection.
The grand children are all over him and he loves it. Thank you very much Candy is everything you said she was and then some!
I can see her and I going far and I'm so happy you found her!
Whiskey is now HOKU (star in Hawaii) and full name Hokulani (Heavenly Star) He is such a good boy, so patient and willing..LOVE him!! We work in the round pen then go in the arena and around the property. He's not yet competing in barrels, but will be very soon and likely keep up his winning streak once I get his times consistent. You can not realize how happy I am with Beamer he is the best head horse I have rode in a long time.
