Cruz Control – January 2015

Cruz is a seasoned competitor at the lower levels of Eventing, has taken a couple juniors around in some amateur jumping, is elegant and scores well in dressage, and puts a smile on a rider’s face as you gallop cross country in hunter paces and point-to-points. He has done a little of everything, including many hours on the trails leading the pack.

We had him recently model in a photo shoot with Leslie Threlkeld and have added some handsome photos on the HORSES FOR SALE page.

If you’re looking for a horse who can show you the ropes and teach you a thing or two, Cruz is your guy!

Shutter Time With Eor The Terrific

Eor The Terrific

We were able to get a bit of shutter time with photographer Leslie Threlkeld this past weekend and updated some of the sale horse’s photos. For starters, is Eor The Terrific (Louie), who is now 4 years old, growing like a weed (and built like a tank), and has been allowed to hangout on the farm or tag around with Artful Way.

Louie is not only beautiful to look at, but his personality is one of the gentlest I’ve come across. Hacking, doing hills, trotting poles and eating has been our objective since transitioning from the track. He is simple to ride and is being brought along systematically.

As a prospect for Eventing, he is the type of horse to have people stop and take notice. See a few more new photos on the HORSES FOR SALE page.

The Season Comes to an End

Photography by Mark Lehner Photography

Pine Top Thanksgiving Horse Trials in Thomson, Georgia is always the best event to end a season. Many of my friends arrived a couple days early, set up camp and celebrated Thanksgiving right there at the stables. It is a great time of year to be with good friends and of course, the horses.

Zeb & Ray – Pine Top 2014

 

It’s been a busy year for me, and now that Ray is completely heeled from surgery on his leg, we are planning on having an exciting and full 2015 season. We already have part of the calendar filled out up to May of 2015!

Help Me, to Help You

Selling horses is constantly evolving mostly due to technology such as the internet. It can make things easier and it can certainly make things harder for the seller and the buyer. Lately, I’ve had some interesting experiences and thought if I wrote about it, it could help everyone involved.

Selling horses can be frustrating

I’m not politically correct and I am very black and white with people, especially when it comes to my horses. I have to be, because it saves valuable time and money in the long run. When searching for a horse to purchase and possibly considering a horse from Little Kentucky, keep the following in mind:

1) Read sale ads carefully and have an understanding of what the terminology in the ad means. For example, if it’s a 2 year old Thoroughbred taken off the track and is described as a ‘prospect’, it is a good bet the horse has never jumped a 3′ oxer. So don’t ask how high the horse can jump.

2) If the ad says “FOR SALE”, don’t ask if the horse can be leased or if there could be a trade.

3) When inquiring, do NOT text the phone number of the seller unless instructed otherwise. It is a lazy approach, rude and a first-class ticket of getting deleted.

4) Don’t contact the seller unless you are a serious buyer and is prepared to make an appointment to come see the horse in person.

5) Never make a dollar offer on a horse you have never seen in person.

6) If the price says $20K on a horse, it is safe to assume that the seller wants full asking price or might lower the price by a few numbers. Don’t make an insulting offer. Here at LKF, it isn’t an episode of Antique Archaeology. We don’t haggle, barter or trade.

7) Do your homework on the seller.

8) Always bring your trainer on the 1st visit. Be dressed to ride.

9) Don’t ask for personalized videos made to order. This isn’t McDonald’s.

10) Little Kentucky Farm is not a Thoroughbred rescue.

11) Stop referring to Thoroughbreds as OTTB. They are Thoroughbreds. OTTB is not a breed. Not all Thoroughbreds are ex-racehorses.

12) Just because it is a Thoroughbred, don’t assume it should be sold for bargain basement prices.

13) No I don’t have an accent and my horses at LKF are usually American Thoroughbreds. If you’re easily swayed by an accent, fancy warmblood names with astronomical prices for an import – Don’t call us.

14) If you love Thoroughbreds, have read the sale ads carefully and want to call the farm, we welcome your calls and will work hard to find the right horse for you.

Sermon is over . . . GO Thoroughbred!
