Our ranch is located near two entrances to the San Luis National Wildlife Refuge http://www.fws.gov/sanluis/ The Bear Creek entrance is about 5 miles south of us on Route 165, the Kesterson Unit is about 5 miles west on Highway 140. To check the annual events here, check out http://www.fws.gov/sanluis/nat_calendar2.htm We are located in the Pacific Flyway, so our ranch has hosts many migratory birds in our back field, along with our resident hawks, owls, sandpipers and sparrows.
We have over 20 colors in our herd - white, brown, black, grey, many multi-colors as well. We also use natural dye sources to create even more colorful combinations of yarn and materials for fiber artists. Our goal is to breed for soft, delightful fiber in a variety of unique colors and combinations.
Our mini horses are small yet offer good conformation and the potential to excel as either a pet or in the show ring. Desperado is a proven stallion with Buckaroo bloodlines. A miniature horse lets us have more horses with lower feed bill! We only offer one or two offspring a year, so that each foal receives a LOT of attention.
