   Our breeding success has been excellent and we ship Monday thru Saturday for the customers and have been known to drive and meet a customer in need for as much as 5 hours away from our farm.

   Our goal is to get your mares in foal as soon as possible and we have the facility and personal to do it, and to help you when you need it.

   Thanks you,
Susan K. Skow owner of Susan's Arabians and Pintos and of SS Painted Intimidator (Homozygous Stallion)

In 1968 this farm was born with the purchase of an Arabian Stallion , Shady Lane Gem. In those days there were not many Arabians in the state of Iowa where I was born and grew up and still live only 10 miles from the farm where I grew up. I had no purebred mares and crossed this stallion on all other breeds --including pintos of all types -- this is where I discovered that I loved the pinto coloring and before the Arabian stallion my first horse was a grade black & white pinto mare that I rode for over 25 years.

The farm is small with 3 purebred Arabian Mares and 2 stallions. The purebred stallion was bred on this farm , TSS Az Malik 321265 (WN Santana x Azrosali) --his pure Spanish Arabian sire, WN Santana was bred by entertainer Wayne Newton and his dam, Azrosali was my first bred mare and double Azraff with a *Rose of France (RODANIA) bottom line. TSS Az Malik has been a wonderful producing stallion not to mention his wonderful disposition --making him my favorite riding horse. He has sired both purebred and Half-Arabian winners in Hunter and Western Pleasure. The 1999 Iowa A.H.A. High Point Purebred Hunter Open was SS Profusion (by TSS Az Malik). SS Profusion was also High Point Purebred Hunter -Adult Amateur 1999. SS Profusion also won Open Western Pleasure Saddle Type at the 2000 and 2001 Iowa State Fair. If you want type, conformation, pretty heads and a "Can Do" attitude Tss Az Malik is a Stallion to consider.

The most exciting horse on the farm is our Homozygous pinto stallion, SS Painted Intimidator aka "ERNIE". He is registered American Saddlebred and Pinto and is also IAHA Breeders Sweepstakes Nominated Sire and NSH Nominated Sire. He is by the Famous Pinto Saddlebred stallion, THE COLOR OF FAME and out of a Black & White granddaughter of World Champion, Modern Creation. Here is an exciting Stallion standing at a very reasonable fee -- you can make some money by breeding to this one!!!!

Cooled Shipped Semen is available. We built a state of the Art breeding barn in 2001 and 100% of mares shipped to in 2002 settled. We have shipped Coast to Coast via FedEx (only) -- Ernie is proven to ship very well. We collect and ship Monday thru Friday with a 24 hr notice. Shipments are collected on the date asked for and arrive fresh and timely.

The barn was started in December 2000. This barn was built for the comfort and safety of visiting mares and the modern Lab was constructed to aid in the Collection and handling of Semen for shipments across the country. We are happy to report success in our shipped semen program with 100% of mares settling in 2002 via our shipped semen. We work very hard at keeping everything timely and clean to insure the best quality of each shipment. The stalls in the new mare barn are 12 x 15 plus two 15 x17 foaling stalls with closed circuit TV Cameras. The stalls are constructed of "space Age" plastic lower panels that are meticulously scrubbed with disinfectant after each mare's stay. Each visiting mare stall has a Dutch door with a full panel grill door so there is floor to ceiling ventilation during good weather and the ceilings in the barn are 16 ft high for comfort and air movement year round. There is a small indoor arena for exercise of Mares and foals in all weather. There are pipe corrals and grass paddocks for turnout in good weather.
