In 2007 we started Shelby Brook Stables when our daughter wanted to start riding in the leadline class at the local horse shows. So we bought a couple of minis, a grey philly and a white stallion, a decked out 8 inch saddle, and a cowgirl outfit with matching leather pink boots. We started attending the local shows and realized that the miniatures were catching on at the shows and more classes were being added to the shows. Thats when we decided to start showing more and lead into raising our own minis. We started purchasing some mares of different color and conformation and ran up on a eye catching Bay Stallion that we purchased from Iona Farm owned by Gordon and Bonnie Harris in Ohio and have been happy with the purchase ever since. We have some mares that you will see that came from Double Diamond Farm in Indiana, All of which have great color and conformation, and I must thank Jana at Double Diamond for her stock. Each year we show at a few more shows and in August of 2010 showed at the Kentucky State Fair and did rather well for our first time there.
