At Even Haven it's family first followed closely by Bev's love of horses, and Larry's love of Bev! They are the proud parents of two wonderful children.  Their son Travis lives in Minneapolis with his wife Sonia, daughter Hawthorne, and Bartleby "the granddog".  Daughter, Kandy, lives just miles away and shares mom's love of horses.  She and her husband Jason have three children. Jerett is 17 and loves hunting, fishing, and sports.  Their daughters Karley 12 and Evie 10 both share the horse-a-holic gene and you'll find them frequenting the 4H Horse Shows and SESDHSA open shows in the spring and summer months with their horses.  

 

Couldn't be more proud of our son and daughter-in-law.....have a listen!

It is with mixed emotion that we wish to announce, SALE PENDING on our great stallion Twist N Boogie to our friends in Mexico City, Mexico.  Boogie has had a very successful career with us.  He has sired 20 foals, with an additional 5 more due in 2015.  Several are in the show circuits, with one being named a PtHA World Champion!  Our friends have purchased several of Boogie's offspring from us in the past and have made us an offer we can not refuse.  We know that Boogie will be in great hands and will continue to sire outstanding foals for them.  They currently have two of his son's in training for Charreria, the Mexican National Sport.  They also plan to train Boogie in this event, stand him as a stallion, and use him as a working horse. His foals are very sought after in Mexico due to their athletic ability, size, remarkable dispositions, and of course their beautiful color patterns.  We will say goodbye to Boogie in March, and will be breeding our mares to outside stallions for 2016.  We have kept back his double homozygous son, Call Me Mr Twister.  We hope he will fill his father's hoofprints.  Mexico will soon gain a great horse, and a definite breeding asset.
