  Susan Skow (farm owner) has been breeding horses for over 50 years and Arabian horses for over 40 years.

  From the beginning there have been spotted horses in the equation. The first horse was a black & white Pinto mare. The farm now stands one stallion at stud: Pinto Homozygous American Saddlebred, SS Painted Intimidator (pictured at left). This stallion was bred by Susan Skow at this farm.

  SS Painted Intimidator is a Homozygous Pinto & Black (only sires Black/White, Bay/White) American Saddlebred Stallion sired by The Color Of Fame.

"Ernie" is siring exceptional Halter horses that will do Performance. He already has a National Champion to his credit, it won't be his last!

RIP Dudley

(SM Dundee Laabask (GG Jabask x Gay Laa Rouge)

  "Dudley" was a grey Gelding lost to old age on Feb 25, 2015.  He was bred by Shirley Mesenbrink and shown many years by her daughter Deb Tierney.   He was then moved to the Ellerman stable when he did lessons and showed with Caroll's students.   Later, he moved to Pennsylvania with my sister, Joanne Witiak, as her personal horse.   She did one endurance ride in New Jersey and won the 40 and over on him. When my sister, Joanne, retired from her job in Pennsylvania he moved to my farm and did lessons and lots of shows for little kids and teen riding students.  He was getting stiff with the old age joint problems so retired from lessons and showing 3 years ago.  His new job was babysitting the weaned foals on my farm and many owners of those horses know what a great babysitter their foals had on my farm --it made them all better horses.  He was put down on Feb 25,2015 after going down and unable to get up.  I had the Vet come and he peacefully went to sleep in my heated arena where he spent a comfortable life.

Dudley--gone to Greener pastures where he will meet up with my Arabian Stallion Az Malik and they will play together.



to Ines and Az Kalika for finishing 38th in the 2013 Tevis Cup 100 Mile Ride!  and for getting the Tevis Silver Buckle at their very first Tevis!!!!!

Pictured at left is Ines Hofmann Kanna and Kalika (TSS Az Malik x Aerial Dream)    TSS Az Malik ( WN Santana x Azrosali) was bred by **Susan Skow*** lived all his life on my farm and died of old age 3-13-2-12.
I am so happy to see a offspring by my stallion going on this difficult, tough 100 miles in one day ride in the mountains.  Ines has been working this mare for this ride for over 4 years.
**Below is Ines and Kalika crossing the finish line at Tevis Cup 100 mile ride 2013**

This is a moment of wishing, wanting, waiting and wondering...moments before receiving our very first champion ribbon. I realized seconds later that we could show everyone that as a pair we could accomplish anything.

Rest in Peace ..... TSS Az Malik


1985 - 2012

Licky was bred by this farm and born here in 1985.  This amazing purebred Arabian stallion sired many show winning get in Western Pleasure and in Hunter Pleasure during his lifetime. He stood only 14.2H tall but had a disposition of a giant.   My personal favorite riding horse of all time.   We will always remember you, Licky.  You will live on through your many foals and their foals....

This is the last foal on earth by my deceased stallion TSS Az Malik (RIP 3-13-12)
   (Tss Az Malik x Aerial Dream) 
This is the 6th foal from this mare by TSS Az Malik --see photos of other fulls siblings-- one is doing well at endurance in California and one is doing well in Reining around the midwest.
