"Leah" is a 2001 model KWPN mare by Wolfgang out of Olympia. She and I have been a partnership since 2013, and together we competed successfully through the FEI Small Tour. Leah is the reason behind The Blonde & The Bay, my heart horse, and forever my number one girl. In October of 2019, I made the decision to fully retire Leah from formal competition while still happy, healthy, and sound. She will stay with me forever. Caring for her into her golden oldie years is one of the biggest honors I've ever had the privilege of experiencing. She is the true rock of our herd, and to know Leah is to love Leah.

Blue Duck is a 2006 model AQHA gelding with foundation bloodlines leading back to legendary stallion, Hancock. Blue is my husband, Barrett's, roping horse. They're team ropers... headers, to be exact. Blue is the gentlest soul with unparalleled athleticism and a heart to match. He is kind, study, solid, smart, patient, and carries a special penchant for Belvita Banana Bread bars. You can now catch Blue Duck in the dressage arena as he embarks on a fresh, exciting journey with Maddie down centerline.
Smoke is our second beloved retiree, and my husband's original roping partner. We don't know much about his background other than he's grade and roughly aged somewhere between 25-27 years old. After a knee injury continued to flair, he stepped away from competitive roping and is now our resident marshmallow fluff. He's ornery, stubborn, and full of old man sass, but sugar sweet all in the same package. We are beyond thankful to offer him a soft landing as he enjoys his golden days.
In November of 2023, we unexpectedly said goodbye to our beloved Smoke. Our herd and hearts will never be the same, but we are so grateful for many incredible years shared with such an irreplaceable horse. Rest easy, buddy. We love you.
