He is extremely happy with Merlyn and will gladly share his story with anyone who would like to know about this fine horse. Thank you Dexter!
Can-Do Justice and Can-Do Grinin Barrett, half brothers by Trailhead Tucson, were purchased by Randy Wirfel of Gillett, WY. Randy purchased Justice as a four year old and liked him so much he came back a couple of years later and purchased Grinin.
AFS Sir Dallas Ander was purchased by Randy and Cynthia Hansen to be a pleasure horse for them and their children. How lucky can those kids get? He let me know on his first ride that he saddle Zander and just rode him off like he had been doing it for years. Can't ask for much better than that.
Trailhead Pearl was purchased by Andrea Figueroa of Arizona. She and her husband enjoy trail riding and participating in parades throughout the year. She was looking for a black Morgan mare for her husband to match the mare they already owned. However, it would have to be a special horse because her husband had a replacement hip on his left side. He needed a horse that was 'bomb proof' that could be mounted from the right side because of a loss of strength which goes with that type of operation. Well, Pearl was it!! They have thoroughly enjoyed owning and riding this amazing mare.
Can-Do Wind Song was purchased by Jil Wickander of Idaho. Jil works for the Forresty Services and plans to use her in rotation with her other mares for job related purposes.
Arapaho Tess was purchased by Dawn DeLong of Wright, WY. Dawn plans to use Tess in her training and riding program as a confidence builder and as a mount for her husband.
Can-Do SF Peter, and exceptionally well gaited gelding, was purchased by Jared Young of Provo, UT. How excited Jared was to be able to take this horse home!! He has been looking for a gaited gelding for his father to replace a horse he lost recently that was very dear to his heart. Jared was really impressed by all the horses here on the farm and plans to come back at a later date to purchase another horse for himself.
Can-Do Stryder, above, is off to his new home in May, Idaho. Gary Madsen purchased him to train for his personal saddle horse. Stryder will be used in Gary's Outfitter business. I am sure Gary will enjoy this up and coming colt for many, many years.
Camas Mist Night Star and Can-Do Nine Joulz were purchased to be used as mountain saddle horses in his outfitting ventures by Jarrod White of Dubois, WY.
I just heard from Jarrod a couple of days ago. He has been very impressed with these girls. He told me they have an amazing work ethic that has been wonderful in his line of work in the mountains. He told me that his buddies had been harrassing him about how 'Morgans are too hot headed and don't work well for this line of work'. He says most of them have changed their minds after seeing how these two have worked out for him. Thank you for being brave enough to go against the grain and stick with your instincts on what you know makes a great horse.
Can-Do Lovin' This and Arapaho Cherokee Maiden - Owned by Rusty Sanderson of Dubois, WY. Rusty truly appreciates the heart and spirit that the Morgan horse posesses. He recently added Can-Do Lovin' This to his base herd and will be using him for packing and riding in the Wind River mountains. He plans on competeing in pack races with both of these fine Morgans and expects to do very well in these competitions. We wish Rusty, Cherokee, and Lovin's the best of luck on their adventures in the future.
