Welcome to the site featuring Gail's horses

    I adore horses--in fact when I was a child I wanted to grow up to be a horse!  My parents bought me my first horse, Apache Lady, the summer before I started 6th grade, and except for my college years, I have always owned horses--at first just 1, and although once the Chambersburg barn housed 9, when we moved to Carlisle, we had downsized to  5 equines.    
    In the 1990's I was moving from thoroughbred horses into warmbloods, when I saw my first Friesian at the Horse Expo in Timonium, MD. As I learned about this breed, I was amazed at all the wonderful attributes these majestic horses purportedly had--the more I read and learned, the more I dreamed of someday owning one.
As the new barn was being built, I said, "With a new barn comes a new horse,"  and that started a serious quest for my first Friesian.
    The yearling Friesian filly "Heidie of D. R. F." arrived here in June of 2003, giving me the summer to enjoy her and learn first hand about the Friesian personality. I had never been around a horse that I would describe as "kind," but that is the nature of the Friesian. It didn't take me long to be smitten and enchanted by this Friesian horse, so when I decided to retire from teaching, as a retirement present I bought a 3 in 1 package from the Netherlands--I rationalized that since I would be able to spend my days in the barn, I should have a couple more Friesians!
In foal for 2006, Wietske and her 2005 Tsjerk filly, Sjaantje, arrived at "Dreams Come True Farm" in June 2005, so it was a wonderful summer, getting to know these 2 horses. Both of our Friesian mares foaled in 2006, giving us our 1st Friesian babies--a colt and a filly. Then we had a colt in 2007, a filly in 2008, a filly in 2009, a colt in 2010, a filly in 2011, and a colt in 2013, a filly in 2014, and both a colt and a filly in 2015.
    We sold both our 4 YO Friesian Teade filly and our 2013 Sape colt in 2013, and three Friesians in 2015: retired broodmare, Wietske, 2011 mare, Lillee, and 2015 colt, Winston. In 2017 we sold 3 YO Trudee, a full sister to Lillee, and in 2018 sold 3 YO Wendee.

    Our current KFPS/FHANA registered Friesians for sale:
Jewelee, an April 2019 Hessel X Sipke full papered foal out of our Sport 1e mare, and her March 2020 full sister, Marlee.
    All our horses are started gently with natural horsemanship techniques, their training is never rushed, and they adore people. AS 2 YOs, the get ground driven, starting with a surcingle and ending up in full harness. As coming 3YOs, I send them out for 3 months to get hitched, and then drive them the rest of the summer to keep fit for their 3 YO keuring. That winter they get lighly started under saddle, and their 4 YO summer go to my driving IBOP trainer, Suzy Stafford, for driving IBOP keuring prep.
    In 2020 we made the difficult decision to end our breeding program, so sold our spectacular performance broodmare, Isobel. We're in our 70s and just can't keep doing everything as in the past.

My holiday horse!
[An irresistable find  at Carlisle's Agway store!

Was this 3 horse slant aluminum Adam horse trailer a
2003 Christmas present for the horses or for Gail???

The picture above was taken when I was in Junior High School and was typical of my carefree summers -- bare-legged; bare-footed; bare-back!
The above picture was taken when I first started riding aside.  Life must no longer be carefree--nothing is bare ;-)  My mount, Tony's Flyer, has since been sold to Claire at Great Folly Farms in Clarksville, MD and is used as a lesson horse. Will my dream of riding a Friesian aside come true?
