My parents and I actually began being in "the horse business" in December 1990 (22 years being a horse owner!!!) with one special AQHA mare that my parents had bought me for Christmas. We started out in Houston, Texas, paying to board horses but after number 4 in '93, we moved to Richton, Mississippi to have room and built the place we now call "Few Acres Paints".
I have continued the horsey thing from trail riding, to barrel racing, even trained a few. I just love Natural Horsemanship! Then it had grew into a small breeding operation rasing and training quality APHA babies. The paint thing started back when my dad had bought me a 6 month old sorrel tobiano grade paint filly, Dolly Madison, back in December of 2000 and I have been hooked on paints ever since. Took a few years to get it off the ground but was so worth it. My opinnion is there isn't nothing more prettier than to watch the paints of different colors and patterns grazing in the pasture.
Offically got into the breeding business in 2003. Horse traded for my first stud, Docs Elmigo Flash in March of 2003. Shortly there after my dad bought Hanks Paw AKA Baby and was bred right away. Just a few years in the business I sold Doc since I was starting my own family. Was planning on continuing with breeding outside mares with a home grown stud from Doc but with the economy as it is, horse prices bottoming out, and the market being flooded I saw no reason in continuing. There are too many sad horses wanting homes and starving everywhere. So sadly sold my oldest home grown stud, Doc Covered N Paint, in Nov. of 2010. Yeah I regret it... should have kept him and rode him.
