circuit for many years, holding several National ABC titles in

His heavy well proportioned build exhibits the epitome of the
Curly conformation.  He is safe for everyone, old and young!

OKIE "J" FIESTY FELLA II, "Fiesty"
ABC 2158
Foaled 1996

Palomino Appaloosa Gelding. 14.1 hands. What can we say  
about Fiesty?? He's little, but he's mighty. Essentially he is
the heart and soul of everything a Curly should be!  What he
lacks in physical appearance with his small stature and his
short little corkscrew mane and paint brush tail he makes up
for in everything he has brought to the table over the years
we have had him.  He literally has seen and done it
all...everything we have asked him to do.  He has been shown
both English and Western, parades, demos, trails, done lessons, even helped
round up cows.  His riders have ranged in age from 6-65.  Sometimes too smart for his own good, he
occasionally will put riders to the test, making them show him what they know!  He not only holds multiple ABC
National titles in both Performance and Versatility as well as High Point Champion titles at Curly and open
show venues, but he also holds the coveted honor of being in the
ABC HALL OF FAME for PERFORMANCE

BS CHOCOLATE CURLS, "CC"
ABC 2651
Foaled 1999

Liver Chestnut gelding.  15 hands.  Pretty is as pretty does...
and he is both.  With his beautiful head, sleek build and
incredible shoulder length mane he is certainly pretty,
turning heads everywhere he goes...but so is his
beautiful running walk.  This boy can get up and head
it down the road, keeping his rider comfortable and
gliding. With experience in the show, demo and parade
arenas he is no beginner...yet he is gentle enough to be
ridden by one.  He holds Championship titles in Curly
show venues as well as multiple high point and versitily championships
in open gaited competition.  Out C.R. Charming Tamar ABC 488
by C.R. Curly Prancer ABC 490, he has the foundation Curly Fox Trotter breeding.

14.2 hand bay gelding.  A real gem, Dude recently
returned to us.  Super curly coated, with the wonderful,
friendly curly disposition, he is not only "in your pocket"
but has a great work ethic and tries to please!  Now in
schooling to finish his training, he will soon be a great
addition to our lesson string and we look for a
great career for him!
