AlohiAlohi is one of our newest additions, originally from Iowa and trained to ride and drive by the Amish. She is half quarter horse, half Hafflinger, about 14.5 hands high and stoutly built. She is currently on maternity leave but we are looking forward to her return to work in early 2008.
RomeoRomeo was born and bred right here on the ranch; we’re mighty proud of this handsome fellow. His dad, Hobby Doc, still lives here as well and has a noble reputation for producing babies with great minds and friendly dispositions. He is about 15 hands, bay in color and purebred American Quarter Horse.
Kai MimikiKai Mimiki means “tidal wave” in the Hawaiian language; we wanted an impressive and powerful name for this laid-back, easygoing fellow. A quarter horse/thoroughbred cross at nearly 16 hands, Kai is kind of a lightweight, he is happiest taking tall and slender riders down the trail.
KeikiBig, cuddly Keiki is a dapple gray Percheron cross. Not one to miss a meal or resist a snack attack, Keiki loves to grab a mouthful of ferns at every opportunity. This stout guy can easily pack guests weighing up to 300 pounds.
PonoPono’s previous job was in the Alaskan frontier taking visitors from the cruise ships into the wilderness to see moose and grizzly bear. We figured a guy with this kind of background deserved the name Pono; in Hawaiian pono means “righteous”.
MiwokMiwok is a mustang. Her mother ran free in the wide open spaces of Nevada. Often mistaken for a roan, her color is actually called sabino; we just call her cute. She is only about 14 hands and not even 900 pounds. Great with kids and ladies.
PattyHere is a real eye-catcher, a gorgeous chestnut and white pinto. She is half Belgian, that’s where she gets her rubenesque figure. Patty is our alpha mare, she’s the boss of the whole herd. On trail rides she likes to bring up the rear, that way she can keep an eye on everyone.
PocojanThe “Queen of Silver Falls”. This amazing lady actually has “Wimpy” on the front side of her registration paper. Free to roam the ranch on her own, PJ is usually found supervising the front office and, along with Ranch dogs “Charlie” and “Bugsy”, welcoming guests with her animal aloha.
