As a child my love of animals, especially horses, was apparent. I would ride daily at our farm dreaming of someday owning a horse facility of my own. As life progressed, so did my interest in all types of horses, but finally with the meeting of my dearest friends Larry and Carolyn Dove, of Dream Acres Arabians, I knew the Arabian horse was the breed for me . So, in 1972 Fairway Farm Arabians was established. I was determined to breed horses any family could own, train and show. I found the perfect stallion for my breeding program in Lea Grandee. Not only did he have the pedigree I was looking for, intensely Azraff/Ferzon, but more importantly, the personality! When my daughters, Brea and Brennen began to ride, he carried Brea to many Championships in Equitation and English Pleasure, always taking care of her in the ring. Brennen loved his gentle nature and brushed his coat until it glowed.
As time passed and things changed I met and eventually married my husband Mark. It is he who I attribute bringing the “color” into my world. He wanted a horse with brains, beauty and, most important, color. Not knowing the difference between a Paint (stock type) and Pinto (color breed) at the time, I thought if we’re going to get some color it needs to at least be a Half-Arabian. Magickal Miss was our first purchase. She later, along with several other mares, was bred to Lea Grandee and year after year the field started to fill with spotted foals.
A western rider primarily, I began searching for stock type or Paint mares to breed and show. Our solid and well researched breeding program of pintos was established in 1992, therefore it was time to change the name to Fairway Farm Pintos! I educated myself on the best sires (when breeding outside our farm) for the mares, and found the “perfect” mares for our own stallions. The western/hunt seat type horses time after time produced the “old style” stocky look I was breeding for. However, for the saddle seat type we chose to breed our mares to Colour Me Hot, the Saddlebred stallion and sire of The Color of Fame, owned at the time to another great asset to my learning process, Becky Strange. I continue to breed quality Arabians, Half Arabians, Paints and Pintos that best fit the needs of the general horse owner. They must not only have the “look” I strive for, but most importantly a “family friendly” nature. This continues to be our main goal at Fairway Farm Pintos!
