Bashkir Curly Horses - SOLD
Creekside Curlies - Our Curlies Write Home!
One of the greatest pleasures of breeding Bashkir Curlies is matching the right horse to the right person. Over the past 12+ years, Mike & I have had the pleasure to witness many happy horses in wonderful homes. Many sold inside the U.S. and some sold overseas. I would like to share with you some comments from those buyers and also the pictures they have sent to me. I enjoy staying in touch and sharing in their joy. We have sold horses into Sport Horse homes, that wanted to enjoy the quality of our Bashkir Curly horses, with ability to do sports and we also have had horses that went into Deluxe Trail horse homes.....We strongly believe in our program, and are using the very best Bashkir Curly bloodlines available, we also are looking for enough quality in our Bashkir Curly foals, to raise horses that are capable of doing upper levels of dressage.

Skookum Buck and Mis Shy Moon write home...
"Hope you are well. Congratulations on your LIFE! Your web page is really terrific. I hope you enjoy driving. Buck and Shy are both well, fit and very well loved. We are riding around quite often. (even Dale at 71). I had a knee replacement in Nov of last year, but recovered and riding since April! I can't express how much the horses mean to us. They make our lives better every single day! I'm still doing Parelli and getting to be a better rider all the time." Sylvia and Dale Miller of Missoula, MT
"Hi Linda, Just thought I would send you a few photos of "Knight" as I call him these days. He is doing well,and doing a good job training me. I have made a lot of progress learning about horses and am really enjoying him. Hope you are doing well and your hip/health issues are improving. These pictures were taken yesterday. I take him for a walk almost every day and we cruz all over the place. He goes up and down really steep rugged and brushy hills no problem and also crosses running creeks with out a problem. Likes his food! I love my horse buddy." Chris
*C-C High Flyer & new owner, Rachelle
"I can't tell you how happy I am with Auggie. Everyone is so impressed with his excellent manners and personality. We had a wonderful day of training and play. He has really adjusted to his surroundings and been very personable with his horse neighbors and people friends. Kali's horse is almost acting as a surrogate mother to him and has been making sure he is safe and looked after. I cant believe how calm he has been with the introduction of new horses, obstacles and experiences. He enjoyed a thorough brushing and even convinced the other ponies that it was safe! He has also developed an affinity for carrots and continued to follow me around and nudge my pockets long after the treats were gone. Thanks very much for your excellent training- it is really apparent. Also, many thanks for the book and pictures. Kali has been bombarding me with good training material and videos. It was pretty dark when Auggie arrived and overcast today, but I will send you some good pics when the sun comes out." Jen

Karen of Utah. Note: Stormy is a Krinkle Clown/Skookum Buck 2002 filly, who is getting started under saddle.
