We participated in our first futurity at the Iowa Ranch Horse Breeder's Program and Futurity. Thrilled to say that CA Black Kitty Cat placed 9th and 11th out of 42 head of strong yearlings under two judges! Judges lined up 12 and placed 15; two of the three judges asked Zach for his number so we're thinking top 15 for him too!

Who we are.....
     Set in the picturesque rolling hills of west central Minnesota, we have been breeding, raising and training Registered Quarter Horses for over twenty years.  We are so fortunate to have a valuable heritage in that we are affiliated with the Lazy JS Ranch in Bowman, North Dakota.  Nada’s father, Russ Silha, started raising Quarter Horses many years ago. In fact, the ranch hosted its 60th annual production sale on August 17, 2019. We do our best to follow in his footsteps and raise horses that are structurally correct, athletic enough to go to the arena or the ranch and have trainable dispositions that most people can get along with. And, if you’ve noticed that our brand resembles the Jesus fish symbol, that’s on purpose as we strive to follow His teachings, keeping the Golden Rule at the top of our list.
If you are already a satisfied customer and have some photos you’d like to share, we’d love to showcase some of our horses in action! Please email any photos/comments to nadacarter@gmail.com. Enjoy the site and please feel free to contact us with any comments or questions. Our door is always open if you are in the area. We’d love to have you stop by!
