Horses and Kids


Horses and kids are like sugar and spice.  One compliments the other.  I am speaking from my own experience with my sons.  My parents are ranchers, they own a number of cows, goats, chickens, horses, donkeys, and Shetland ponies on over 1000 acres.  They breed and sell a specific horse breed….
