Ferret makes a name ...

SCH Two Colors a 2013 bay paintbred gelding, affectionaltely known as 'Ferret', has been a delight to train. He was our first Ten Colors (USA) foal out of our mare Oaks N Diamonds and we decided to keep him for our performance gelding. With limited outings he has won Ranch classes at the Paint Nationals and money doing ABCRA Ranch Sorting.

We have started him on Reined Cow Horse work but recently we have had to turn him out, due to the drought and having other commitments at the farm. We are sure looking forward to campaigning with him again in the future!
