“When the going gets tough, the tough get going.”

There’s something to say about this generation of people. They are people that work hard. They are people who pull together. They are people that will inconvience themselves for the betterment of their friend and neighbor for a job that needs done. Bobby Jones and Mike Keller are those people. Farm owner/oncologist/hay hauler, Tracy Dobbs was in this over 60 hay-crew too! (Nothing like bailing hay on your Holiday weekend!😝)

Thankful for hardworking, honorable, and loyal people left in this world. ❤️

Get the Macha Breeze line while you can! 🦄❤️

This will be Macha Breeze’s last season standing for breeding, he is very fertile and got 90% of his mares in foal last year. At 25 Mac is melanoma free , can be hacked in a halter & consistently produces very nice babies that owners tend to keep for a lifetime. If you’re looking for a truly old line, classic, versatile draft stallion, Mac is your man. He is prepotent in throwing his topline, correct legs, big feet, and wonderful temperament. If you are lucky enough to be chosen as one of the limited mares he will book to, consider yourself very fortunate as he will enjoy his well deserved retirement from Breeding after this season🦄⭐️⭐️

Learn more about Mac on our website-

https://www.startingpointfarm.com/macha-breeze-rid

we will also have a beautiful 3yr old ID gelding coming available by Mac, so stay tuned!

BRF recap:

End of November, our farm staff completely changed. December 3rd, Debbie had hip surgery. All the while, we found Gaurdian in the middle of all this. Although we must admit, not the BEST timing, After several talks with @melaniehammer, Gaurdian is bought and sent to his new crazy owner (aka US). 🤣

After months of having him and getting to know him… today was the day we have ALL been waiting for. The day Debbie and Gaurdian got to really connect. I mean, who buys a horse and then has to wait 4 months to ride it?!?! Talk about anticipation!!!!!!! 🤣❤️🦄 it was everything and then some!

Gaurdian, you keep proving that you live up to your name and ALL the hype!!! ❤️🎉🦄

We are so proud to call you ours forever. ❤️❤️

So cool! 🦊🥇❤️

Gaurdian: noun.

A defender, a protector, a keeper.

We have searched, searched, and searched some more.
3+ years. Thousands of ads, thousands of horses. Then came this guy. His owner @melaniehammer debated selling, but something told her to post that day. We messaged and something spoke to her about what we said. She had 74+
People message about him, but something spoke to her about US.

I believe in the stars aligning, fate, and all that. I also believe Debbie deserves this more than anyone I know. He’s here. He has somehow lucked into the best owner… for the rest of his life.

Gaurdian, we feel just as lucky to have found you, sweet soul. Can’t wait to watch the both of you grow together!

For all my non-horsey friends: Adrienne Lyle is the top US Equestrian at the Tokyo Olympics. She is also very much a "home grown" horsewoman - she trains her own animals from the ground up and then gets professional coaching after a certain level. This takes years and years of dedicated effort. For her first horse, a few years ago, she even served as her own groom and stable hand in the beginning. So this rider has my heart behind her. The pictures below were her first ride into the Toyko Olympic stadium to acclimate her horse to the venue. Note the horse is in the simplest of bridles - a plain ol' snaffle bit. While a much more sophisticated bridle is used in competition, what these photos tell me is Ms. Lyle trusts her ginormous, powerful riding partner AND - far more importantly - HE trusts HER. This animal has just flown halfway around the world, is stabled in a new place, in a new time zone, with horses he does not know, being asked to work in an entirely new venue, and just 'all the things.' And yet here he is, calm as a cucumber, in a plain snaffle bridle. THIS is true horsewomanship, y'all, and I hope every person who loves animals will watch Ms. Lyle and support her in her bid to bring home the Gold. #SheEARNSHerMedals

Title: Untamed Spirit 42x62” Pigment Print w/Encaustic on Board Available for Purchase I’m sure this is odd to say, but I understood horses better than people. It’s as if they were communicating by simply being present. There was nothing better than going out on a foggy morning with my camera and capturing their essence and beauty. I rode many horses, then one day I was graced by owning a beautiful #Appaloosa. The funny thing was she had no spots except in one ear, oh and she was a chestnut. I named her O’Keeffe in honor of the artist I loved so much. She was a ball of fire! O’Keeffe and I understood each other. I look back on it and it was like an avitar moment, and instant connect when we rode. Our favorite moments were galloping in the rain. She and I grew up together. It was not uncommon for me to visit her in the fields at night when the farm was quiet and tell her about my life. I would climb on her ba****ck, wander the fields, and talk to her like a friend. After college, our relationship grew stronger through turbulent times in my life. Then one day a dreaded phone call came, she was kicked in the leg by another horse in the field while battling for her alpha position. The trauma was incomprehensible, we had to put her down. As I was holding her head and whispering our language into her ear, I was reminded her energy would stay with me. I stopped photographing horses and started pursing other photographic series. It was unbearable after that to visit any of our usual spots, she was my everything. Eight years later, a dear friend of mine, Laura took me and my camera on a surprise visit to a friend’s barn (Blackberry Ridge Farm in Greeville, TN.). I understood then why she brought me along as I cautiously joined her in the barn. What took place next was a flood of familiar smells and sounds that ignited my spirit. My camera and I became one with many of the horses. This photo was of one of the stallions in the barn. He was quite a character. When he was out in the field showing off, it began to rain. I smiled thinking of O’Keeffe and our rides in the rain. The memories that were oppressed for so long came flooding back. The rain and my tears became one. Every photo tells a story and this photo tells of O’Keeffe’s Untamed Spirit that still lives in me today. #FineArtPhotography #ArtCollector #InteriorDesign
