It all started in 1972, when I would go to the local livery stable in
Palos Hills, Illinois, for their two hour ride. After two years, I
bought my first horse, an unregistered Apploosa gelding, in August of
1974. That first horse led to another, then another and another. By
1989, I graduated from boarding my horses to owning my first place.
It was located in Braidwood, Illinois, about 45 miles southwest of
Suburbia started to catch up with me there, so I studied all
my options, sold that place and bought a much larger farm near
Oktaha, Oklahoma, where I am located today. Diamond Run Farm now
consists of 111 acres, 5 ponds, a seasonal creek and several
outbuildings. I am no longer limited to just Appaloosas. I have
Quarter horses, a Paint gelding and cattle. My goal is to produce a few
foals each spring from recognizable "using" bloodlines. Feel free to
look around and thanks for stopping by!
