Paint Creek Farm takes care of geriatric show horses in their 20′s and 30′s. Our horses are accustomed to the regimen of show life: grooming, bathing, fly spray, special shoes, doctoring, supplements and treats throughout the day. At the farm there are no announcers or golf carts or early schooling calls. Instead of a radio playing all night, we tune into the old sound of Whippoorwill. Some of our oldsters are slightly trail ridden but most are turned out to graze and day dream. They are brought into the barn in inclement weather; under a fan in the Texas summer or the shade of many live oak trees. Our geriatrics are loved by our caretakers like there is a tomorrow and a tomorrow and a tomorrow and a another tomorrow. Meet them in our Gallery Section.
Tyler was his owner’s first warmblood and one of the first warmbloods at her show barn over twenty years ago. “I think we’ve applied ‘Tyler’ principles to all or our subsequent warmbloods in one way or another,” his owner told us.
Colter was his owner’s best friend. He was his pasture buddy Pendleton’s best friend. And he was ours. To fenceless pastures, jumps of flowers and fields of green our sweetheart, BF Colter.
