July 3013:
Roly is her usual self.... loves playing in the river and at home is much less trouble than she has been in the past: We put an electric wire inside the post and rail fencing.  She is such a character!  Last year, she was convinced that the grass was greener any place she wasn't.... She would just lean on a post until it broke and then, as a result, we found large round hoofprints all over the farm, and often, Roly standing peacefully in her stall- waiting for her breakfast... having opened every bag of bedding in the  barn. 
RU Tootsiepop

August 2010
  • By Prodigal Snifty Hank (Registered APHA) x Belgian mare
  • Bred by Hiatt Ranch, ND
  • Paint Belgian
RU Amaretto
  • By Prodigy Snifty Hank (Registered APHA) x Bessie (Belgian)
  • Bred by Hiatt Ranch, ND
  • Paint Belgian
Our deepest condolences go out the owners of RU Amaretto, who unfortunately had to be humanely euthanized due to a severe case of colic. We know that she was well loved and will be missed by many.

November 29, 2010:
We had to put Amar down last night. She colicked pretty bad, a small intestine twist that even surgery probably wouldn't have helped. We didn't want her to suffer or be in pain anymore. She was a fighter though and stoic about everything to the very end. She was an angel through and through and will be greatly missed by a lot of people.
