We currently have 33 girls; a few of which are retired or close to it and several youngsters too young to breed. Most of our females are breeding stock while some are learning to pack or serve dual rolls as both packers and dams. They seem to enjoy getting out on the trails and hiking helps keep them in shape. However, we are careful not to overload them if pregnant and they do not go out during their last trimester. Our breeding herd:
JENN'S SWEET GIRL
ZELINDA HANNIE MAE-right
MESA'S MAY SUNRISE L-S MAGMA x SPRING CREEK MESA 5-03-2000 46"
Strong packing lines (Her dam is out of Ebenezer and OKR Kiva- Wickiup). Sunrise produced our stud LIGHTENING and is bred to a Black Thunder son for 2019.
HI TRL CHIANA LOLO CREEK'S ROBBIE D. x LADY LYNDA 6-19-2000 47.50"
Chiana has had several great offspring with Spock, including her daughter Phoebe (also part of our herd) and will be tried with DARGO this Spring.
HI TRL JOSEPHINE OF THE WINDS MAGIC MESA FRISCO x GAZA 5-25-2001 45.75"
Josephine joined our herd this past Fall. We have her full sister Isabella and like the Clancy/Poncho Via lines they bring.

BT daughter bred to GEMINI for 2019.
HI TRL ISABELLA OF THE WINDS MAGIC MESA FRISCO x GAZA 5-24-2002 46.75" Josephine's full sibling; both half sisters to Pretty Boy Floyd, Issy is bred to DARGO for 2019.
HI TRL DOUBLE OREO COMMANDER SPOCK x CHIMICHUNGA 6-28-2003 47.25"
Oreo has an amazing gait and displays the power and strength of her sire. Her offspring includes the stud Hi Trl O'Reilly but , to date, we have not had success getting her to breed. We will pursue breeding again this Spring to JOHN CRICHTON.
AMAYA'S TRINITY KAYLA MLLC KC'S CHIEF x AMAYA 7-01-2003 45"
Outcross female; her sire Chief packed well into his 20's and her 1/2 brother Lightening was a great packer and stud. Bred to a Black Thunder son for 2019.
OKR JENN'S SWEET GIRL BLACK THUNDER x OKR LITTLE JEN 6-09-2004 49" Another wonderful BT daughter; her dam is out of Wickiup and was a Hector Connection granddaughter. Her stride covers the ground and she moves like a cross country skier.
MH NIKITA T.J.'S FANDANGO x TEKA OF MEADOW HAVEN 12-27-2004
An outcross female that joined our herd this past Fall. She will be bred to DARGO this year.
HI TRL HANNIE MAE HILLVIEW HUGO x SAMMIE 5-26-2005 46"
Hannie Mae is the official greeter and gets quite miffed if she doesn't receive a proper back scratch from visitors. We hope to get her bred to DARGO this Spring.
HI TRL ZELINDA COMMANDER SPOCK x BBR BELINDA 6-11-2005 47"
One of our best producers. She has created winners when bred to Floyd, Miles O'Brien, Black Thunder's Llegacy, and Lightening. Now Zelinda is bred to another Black Thunder son for 2019 with great expectations.
