Our Horses

We use Big, Beautiful, Draft Horses for their incredible strength and kind gentle nature!
We don't hold ourselves to one specific breed, but rather look for individuals
with the characteristics and temperment required to be safe, stable, driving horses.
Our herd consists of Belgians, Shires, Percherons, and Clydesdales!

Our horses are part of our family first!, and working companions second. They are treated with kindness and respect!
When working they always have access to fresh water and are given an assortment of treats
(carrots, apples, alfalfa cubes, and grain) all throughout the day.
At home, they run free in pastures, on a 160 acre ranch in Milford California, with our other horses.
They are brushed, bathed, ridden, and cared for by everyone in our family!
