Painted Lady has been my pride and joy for many years. As of 2015, she is 25 years old. I have had her since she was 4yo. She's my perfect horse and my very special lady, even though I love my others. She has produced several outstanding foals but her 2008 filly, Armed and Painted Lily, aka "Lily" is the first one that was patterned just like her...both in spirit and looks! She is the filly I've been waiting for!!
LILY was born on March 2, 2008. She is a red roan sabino just like her mother and such a sweet filly. WGC Gen's Armed and Dangerous is her Gr-sire and she has the tennessee walking horse gait!
My beautiful Painted Lady will always have my heart- we have a bond that is so dear. Lily has finally found her life rider- Tommy, my son in law. She is so smooth and is such a good girl. This year (2016) she is 8 years old and her Momma is 26 years old.
LILY and DAZZLE - as of 2017, Dazzle is 27 years old and doing well! Lily is an awesome ride for Tommy!
Brumby is a wonderful and gorgeous horse!!! Such a sweet kids horse. He's a great horse for anyone but he is Mason's.
First introduction to the regulars....
Star is a sweet little pony with vim and vigor. She makes Austin an awesome little ride!
SECRET - TWHBEA
Major League Secret, registered TWH. She is a great trail mare. I have been horse camping with her and had wonderful rides with friends on the trails. Smooth riding!!
Part of having horses...and cows...the hot hay season. My son Kevin on top and son in law Tommy on ground. (believe or not, but we made it to the barn with this stacked truck...no extra trips here! Taken June 7th, 2010.
In Special Memory of an awesome horse, PETEY
Petey and his best horsey friend, Painted Lady. Petey crossed the Rainbow Bridge this year, 2015 - due to complications of EPM disease. He was only 25yo. We'd had him since August of 1994. What a winner he was for Ashley in 4H!!!!!!!!!!!!! Grand Champion in both Pleasure and Gaming. Gaming was his thing- he loved Ashley to no end. He will always be missed here at the Brett Farm. Photo taken June 2015.
Below- Petey was buried on the hill above the house- a hill he had raced up many times and grazed on as well. He is always in our hearts. This is now known as Petey's Hill. (We have some wonderful canine family buried on this hillside- woods line as well)
Petey - September 1990 - June 30, 2015
RIP sweet Sparkle.
