develop their muscle tone naturally. We feed the best nutrients
available. Each foal is handled using methods that encourage curiosity
and build confidence throughout each developmental stage and learning
experience. Our horses are handled with respect. We build our
relationships through trust and T.I.M.E. THIS I MUST EARN. Gypsy

reflects outwardly exactly what is instilled in them.

Alpharetta, Georgia, where she continues to reside. Kimberly has two
passions in life, her amazing family, and the animal most generous of

which she is honored to be a part.
