I think what makes your horses stand out is that they have the athletic ability to do almost anything, good looking enough to get you noticed but gentle enough to be trusted. It’s hard to get those three at the same time. Kirk and I were talking last night about how impressive your program is that we were able to build a breeding program with almost all your horses. Shared by Mike C., ID 2016

CA Keen Javiar 

2007 Sorrel Gelding

Dame Edna Marie x Keen Shine

Owned by Rachel B, WA

“I have come to own CA Keen Javiar (aka Bradie) for over three years now. He is the perfect all around horse I could have ever hoped for. He can go from the hunter under saddle ring winning all blues to now starting his second career in barrels. He exceeds every expectation I have of him and will do anything I ask for. He is not only sweet to be around, but quirky and silly. He adores our family and will follow us around anywhere. My favorite thing he does is whenever he is frustrated or bored, even at times when I can tell he is nervous, he will wiggle his pink nose as fast as he can. I can’t say enough good things about him and his one other previous owner will tell you the same. Carter Acres made an incredible horse and I would be lucky one day to own another from them!

 

Frostee Tootsie Roll (aka Dixie)

2013 Grey Filly

Frost Bee Leo x Tootsie Roll Chex

Owned by Danielle H, MN

Occasionally we pick up a filly that we feel is a good deal and will nicely fit our breeding program. Dixie was one of those. Danielle really liked her so we decided we’d part with her. 

“She sure is a thinker! As soon as I start doing something with her, she starts chewing and keeps chewing almost the entire time. Constantly analyzing everything and has picked up on things quick; so far I love her personality.”

“We placed 1st in Inhand Trail and 2nd in Halter Class. This year we are going to do trail class, pleasure, halter, reining, and a little bit of gaming. We may try some roping off of him too. He’s really smart”

Owned by Naomi S, MN

“Breckin is doin great. I just love her. She knows she’s my little love and always comes to me for scratches and kisses. She does very well with the boys running around and running up to her. They were trying to feed her rhubarb last weekend. 🙂 She is turning into such a beauty now that she’s lost most of her white winter fuzz. We’ve trailererd her a couple times already and she’s gettin great at that too.” 

 

CA Sterlings Rusty

2012 Red Roan Gelding

LJSR Dusty Shine x LJSR Sterling Roan

Owned by Kent G, MN

Out in the Black Hills and he’s doing great! His trainer said he was the easiest horse he’s ever had. I could have sold him many times; people love him….but he’s not for sale!
