We have two horses; Sun Hill No Star Q-65998, otherwise known as Pretty. Pretty is purebred quarter horse, with blood lines focusing on working cow. Jess uses Pretty for Breakaway Roping, we purchased her in 2015 when Jess was 10 ½ years old. Pretty had been used by adults in the past and it did take us a few months to become a team. Now there is no stopping us. She is our cheeky pocket rocket and we love her to bits!
Fast n Fancy Q , otherwise known as Delta. Delta is a purebred quarter horse, she is bred for speed. Jess uses Delta for Barrel Racing. Delta was bred by our Aunty & Uncle who own Bandora Breaking. We have owned her since she was a four-year-old. Delta and I have made an instant connection, she loves to turn and burn, she is kind and has a sweet nature. She loves being in the arena running her drum pattern. Delta also loves her yearly turn out more than any horse I know. Freedom and Grass!
4cyte Epiitalis Forte Gel: We have been using 4cyte Epiitalis Forte Gel for a just over a year now. Both horses absolutely love the taste! Our biggest problem is ensuing the applicator does not get damaged when we give their daily serve! Never leave the tube where these horses can sneak it away. This product is such a privilege to use, our horses have never worked better & been healthier. Our horses are 11 and 12 years old in a tough discipline. The benefit of having our horses on 4cyte Epiitalis Forte Gel is immeasurable and the well-being of our horses depend on it!
