New Year 2024

December 2023

October and November have flown by! 
In October we were able to market and find phenomenal homes for  our three half draft horses that we entered in the Fall Round Up sale in Heber City, UT.
We  spent a few extra days in Utah and planned an adventue with our friends to ride the Bonneville Salt Flats!

Goose and Mark also won the Henry Rifle for the Ranch Trail competition that was held between the sale horses!

The eclipse happened while we were out there too!

October 2023

Much has changed since 2019!
We shut the training operation down and moved the family back to southern Minnesota. With three young children, it was important for us to be around and prioritize family.  Mark continued to stay active in the horse world with his judging of AQHA, NSBA,  APHA, POA & Ranch shows along with taking the kids trail riding on their ponies and giving them lessons...horses and ponies! ;-)          

In June of 2023, Mark decided to open the door for training horses again. He has always enjoyed the young horses and developing their minds along with their talents.  With that said, we have been blessed and the barn has filled up with  a lot of young show prospects getting ready to make their sale video debut,  watch our socials and sale page for those! 

I stayed busy runing Melissa Baus Design, marketing sale horses for clients through photography & video, shooting equine portrat sessions, weddings, family & senior photos.  Through this my admiration and respect grew for half drafts and crossbreds. Opportunity on the right one's came around and Mark and I have taken a leap of faith and invested into our own set of horses that we will be offering for sale.

We were lucky enough to be accepted as consignors into a premier horse sale, the Fall Round Up in Heber City, UT.
This sale takes place on October 14, 2023.
Below are links to the horse's we have and their sale pages, you can also check them out on our instagram as we will post all the way through the sale. We would love for these horses to get fantastic homes and want potential buyers to know what they are getting so please reach out and come meet them!
