Arabian Horses
In the 50's (1950's that is) a wonderful lady named Sybil Roberts (Hardy) introduced me to her grey Arabian gelding named Spots. He was trained to the umph by Sybil and, to my surprise, she allowed me to ride him. Many years later (1972) I moved from Sonoma County, CA to Bend, Oregon and met Jennie and Lester Walton. That story can be found here. In 1982 I was finally able to afford my first purebred, Thamin Pashah (Bey Shah x Precious Baska), purchased from the Waltons. My heart has never been the same. Arabian horses know what you know and much, much more.

Highland Cattle
The year 1992 found me owning a 160 acre ranch in So. Oregon. Four or five horses couldn't make a dent in the meadow grass so, out of necessity I got into cows. Not just any cows mind you, but Highland cows. Smart, interesting, fun to look at and very marketable, little did I know I'd have my heart captured....again. More on Highland Cattle.

Northeast Washington State
In 2001 the horses, cattle, cats and I moved to the very Northern corner of Washington State. The air is fresh, traffic light, people friendly and I've been able to pursue a number of paths of learning. Natural Horsemanship, Natural Healing (equine acupressure) and many more hours on the computer learning new software. Who would'a thought.
