Ventura Miniature Horse Farm

Hoofbeats in Heaven











"When your horse follows you without being asked, when he rubs his head on yours, and when you look at him and feel a tingle down your spine...you know you are loved."
John Lyons



Little King's Little Lotta Buck
AMHA # A24263
Sire: Boone's Little Buckeroo
Dam: Komoko's Brown Sugar

Lotta was the Queen of this farm! I was extremely honored to add this phenominal buckskin daughter of Boone's Little Buckeroo to our breeding program. Lotta had spent her entire life at Little King Farm, and was the dam of the phenominal AMHA Champion Stallion Little King's Master Bucks, owned by Jonathan S. Whitt at JSW Farms.

Jandt's Dashing Lady
aka Zena
June 24, 1996-July 1, 2008

Jandt's Dashing Lady was a beautiful buckskin mare simply known as "Zena". Zena was bred by Joseph Jandt, and spent nearly her entire life at the Buck On Ranch in Minnesota before coming to live with us in early 2008. Zena was a breeder's dream come true. Zena was the dam to many phenominal foals including her 2008 filly "Little Zena" sired by Willow Creek's Dancer's Perfecta, whom she blessed me with in early May, 2008. Her other foals include: Excelsiors Perfecta's Iced Cinnamin, Robins Chance, Czar's Grand Command, Czar's Grand Reflection, Czar's Grand Fortune HBA, and Buck On's Blazin Hot.

We tragically lost Zena to complications from Hyperlipemia on July 1, 2008. We exhaused all medical resources to save her life, but it just wasn't enough. Zena fought a hard fight, and I held her in my arms as she took her last breath. Zena was loved by all and will be greatly missed.

Squirt
May 18, 2008-November 27, 2008
Squirt was a complete suprise when I found him running around the yard one morning. He was foaled during the night and had gotten out of the mare pen, and was exploring his new world! He was a strong, independent boy from the very start. He was so small, but so perfect. His dam became very ill when he was about 10 days old, and she was no longer able to produce milk. We ended up pan feeding Squirt 8 times a day for the next two months. With the help of my mom and my nephew, this colt never missed a meal. Needless to say, we all spent a great deal of time with him, feeding him, pampering him, and he became everyone's best buddy. He was strong and growing, and impressed everyone at the vet hospital at his recent check-up. Although smaller than all the other foals, he still thought he was the "big boy" of the bunch.

Squirt died very unexpectantly on Thanksgiving morning. We have absolutely no idea as to why he died, and I guess we will never know for sure. He held a very special place in our hearts and we will never forget him.
