The Ironwood Farm Fjords will be out and about showing in 2017.  Helen Hayn has been showing Ironwood Mary Ann at recognized dressage shows in pursuit of a USDF breed award, as well as the CDCTA Pony Cup. Meanwhile Katie Puckett is riding Mary Ann in low level jumpers and starter horse trials in pursuit of her NFHR Excellence Award.  Helen Hayn successfully moved Ironwood Roheryn to USEA recognized Beginner Novice and will have one more recognized horse trial before Roh moves to his new home.  We have a few more shows remaining this fall.  Come see us in action!

We are pleased to announce the purchase of a new mares for our mare band.  Blitzen is delighted!  Plain Dealing’s Greta (Prydarson/Sophia/Solar) is an elegant brown dun mare from the Plain Dealing Farm breeding program.  We have been pleased with the foals from her close relative Plain Dealing’s Eastra and look forward to a 2018 foal from Greta.
