After a little initial hesitation, Farley (Xanadu
x Mosaic) is showing his curious and affectionate personality. I am so
impressed with him, and the job you and your family did handling him.
Thank you, Caroline
Simba's colt (by Maverick) made it to New Jersey today! He's such a
sweet guy and I'm already in love with him.
Thanks Lois and family!
Thank you Lois, Michael and the crew! The Sweetpea (Maverick) colt now
Valentino arrived safely with his brothers. He is what you said and
Thank you TVR, Tully (Ghost x Peacetime) arrived safe and sound and he is
perfect. He has let me snuggled with him and seems to be settling in
as are the other two babies from TVR.
I'm in love.
Thank you Lois and family for an amazing job! Connery (Freya x
Peacetime) is all settled in.
Darcy & family
I can't thank Lois and the crew enough for such an amazing baby!
(Molly x Mosaic) He has settled in great and is already at my hip
Everyone love him.....cannot wait to begin the new journey!
Another TVR's Sophie (Orchid x Peacetime) delivered safely and in very good
condition to Saint John, NB.
Thanks to Lois and Michael and family.
Hi Lois, Carolyn and I would like to thank you
for the three wonderful Mosaic babies we purchased from you in 2010. All
three have wonderful conformation, lovely temperament and fantastic
movement. Raphaela has such a beautiful floaty trot with so much extension!
I can't get enough watching her move. Gianni is so drop dead gorgeous and
has such amazing power! Sadly, Carolyn won't let me have him :-). Thank you
also for all your help with the registrations. I must admit I am already
drooling over your 2011 planned breedings - might be back for another baby
in the future! Keep in touch and thanks again for everything!
Judith Schulz, Murillo (Thunder Bay), Ontario
Hey I have a 1/4 percheron paint that came from
your farm, he just turned 3yrs old in may and is the greatest horse that I
ever could have asked for! he hurt himself and was lame until this august,
since then I have backed and rode him about 10 times... he is not spooky at
all and listens to just voice commands to whoa, walk on, trot, and walk from
a trot!!! he amazes me with HOW smart he is. his sire is Quincy... Dash has
a "floating" trot that would excel SO well in dressage or???
(I am just a trail rider but am thinking of taking some lessons in some
other disciplines to show this guy off) he also free lunges over 3"
THANK YOU FOR SUCH AN AMAZING HORSE!!! I will send you pictures if you
want some for your site!

Beautiful horses! Reserve a couple 2011 filly's
Your horses are some of the most beautiful I've ever seen! We have a
Belgian cross mare and I would LOVE to breed to any of your studs...
or just buy a bunch of your babies!
Every year at foaling time, I
check your site constantly for updates.
You should definitely make a Facebook page to get your name out there and to
show the world your beautiful babies. They are truly breathtaking!

I just visited the web......any more black foals? or even black n
if not I'll stick to stormy but magpie's foal is what brought me here....
She is stunning. I love your web and further comments would be on the same
string so I'll just leave it to those 4 words to explain.
We have been so thrilled with our 2009 twin girls, Gypsy & Jewel, now
known as Porsche (Black & White) & Mercedes (Black) out of Stormy
& Tonto. They are 15 months old now, and doing wonderful. We
taught them basic manners, picked up their feet, leading and grooming and
having their feet trimmed. After that, they were turned out all summer
with our mares to be babies. Porsche measure in at 14.3 and Mercedes
is at 14 hands. They are so trusting and loving. My husband Jon
has developed such a bond with the girls, they follow him anywhere.
This fall, we will start Porsches ground work. Mercedes will get until
next spring just to ensure her legs are doing well. I don't push them,
because they still have a lot of growing to do.
You have given us a very special gift, two actually, and I cannot thank you
enough. I will send pictures I promise. I know where we will
purchase our next draft cross, and who I will recommend to my friends.
Jon & Della Swails, Cedar Creek Stables, Sandy, Oregon
Been watching this site for a few years and
always love the foals I see every spring.
Waiting till this September for the prices to go down. Hopefully the foal I
got my eye on is still here.
I would be really interested in seeing some of
your horses out of your stallions and mares as adults.
Maybe under photo gallery you could post a few pictures of adult horses from
each stallion and
just label the sections as "peacetime's progeny" and Mosaic's
It would round out the picture of what type of horses you produce.
I've had my Twinvalley baby for two years now
and she is the light of my life!
Very sorry to hear about Tonto! RIP I hope his journey home was
Very nice horses.
R I P Tonto, what a fabulous horse he was, and
producer of so many wonderful foals over the years. So sorry to hear of his
I am so sorry to hear of the death of your
lovely black and white stallion Tonto. My heartfelt condolences to you
and your family
We have had our two babies home now for a week - they are absolutely
stunning and so calm. Tucker and Maggie traveled all the way across
Canada to us here on Vancouver Island. They arrived in great spirits
and have settled in so quickly. We would highly recommend any horses
from Twin Valley Ranch! Our two are out of Mosaic and Peacetime.
They are gems! Also, we hauled with G and H Haulers out of Ladner, BC.
I wouldn't hesitate to haul with them again - they were super caring.
Thanks so much to Lois and her family for giving our babies life and a
Sue and Paul Molholm - Victoria, BC
Once again I am thrilled with my foals from Lois
this year! After having Juno out of last year's crop (MosaicXQueenie) who
far exceeded my expectations and is now in Utah to develop into an upper
level eventer, I really didn't think I would find another of equal quality
this year! Mosaic is proving himself a valuable stallion, the temperaments
and movement on theses babies are just outstanding! Crosby (MosaicXDutchess)
is from this year's crop, and she is lovely! The biggest, loftiest canter
with balance and rythym already!! If you are looking for a talented
sporthorse, with a great temperament, conformation and movement, keep your
eye on next year's Mosaic crop!
Thanks again for yet another excellent colt!
"Lego" is such a sweetheart
even though "Odin" is not so happy about giving up his baby spot
on the farm.
I hope to turn those two into the best of friends in the future! :)
And I am certain that "Ano" is smiling at all of us from his
window in heaven.
Long live the Twin Valley Ranch ponies!!!!
Bianca, South Carolina
Oh wow! Your horses are AMAZING!!!!! I say
drafts are Gentle Giants!!!
We can't wait to get our boy home and start working
So far we have made several inquiries about our colt and Lois has been
awesome to respond quickly
with an update-we enjoy seeing new pics on the website as well and
forward to our delivery (also arranged by Lois) of Vegas in September.
Sincerely, Shelley in Orangeville, Ontario
I love your website it is so easy to view. You
definitely have beautiful horses
I love Bardot I just bought her and I have heard
many great things about Twin Valley Ranch
so now I own one of your foals and I LOVE HER!
Just a note to say that I enjoyed looking at
My children have all been/are in Pony Club, so I enjoy looking at jumping
I was amazed at the twins!
God Bless--Lois and Michael Stougard, Ellensburg, WA
I love how great a lot of the horses
conformation is, which makes them that much more desirable.
Great job and I would love to buy a foal from here. :):)
I just wanted to say, I think you have got some of
the most beautiful horses around.

Hi, I've been watching your babies for three
I love to see the new foals. Hopefully some day
I will be able to purchase one for my own.
I am thrilled for you with the twins. Just a suggestion for the
twins.....how about Jessica and Brooklyn!
seems perfect and a great way to honor your lovely girls.

This is for people that might wonder how the foals
grow up. I have a TVR 2005 filly and she is started and going sooooo well
under saddle. I am so in LOVE! This horse is one of the most balanced and
even tempered horses I have ever owned. I have "Back Yard" raised
her. She is 16.0 hands tall. I am 52, 4'11" tall, and have done her
training myself. You CAN NOT go wrong with one of these horses. THANK-YOU to
the Drielicks for all the support and for breeding such a wonderful

I purchased a percheron filly out of Classy sired by Baxter in 2007. She
will be 2yrs in may and I couldn't be happier with her. She is in love with
my golden retriever and He feels the same. She is kind and gentle and
willing to do anything. I can't say enough about her. Thank you Drielick
family sooooo much! I reccomend you to anyone who asks where she came from.
I can't wait to start ground work this spring! Thanks again!

I recently purchased a 4 month old filly from
Lois and I am totally in LOVE!!!! I was undeceided on what I should purchase
and when I told Lois that I was interested in a foal that would make a
dressage prospect she suggested the Big Blue/Mosaic filly. When she arrived
at my home( after spending 5 days ) on a trailer, she was all that Lois had
said and MORE!!! Temperament is definitely a 10. Color a 10 and movement a
10. She is soooo smart and bonded with me right away. Since she arrived Lois
has been right there to answer my emails if I have any questions or
concerns. I will be back in 2009 to buy another TVR foal!!! thanks Lois for
making my dream come true.
I couldn't be happier with the foal I purchased from Lois. After changing my
mind a couple of times (Lois has the patience of Jobe),
I finally decided on Queenie's filly by Mosaic in 2008. Juno, as she is now
known, is a filly that has already made such an impression on me after only
Her temperament is phenomenal, conformationaly outstanding and colour and
size to boot! She is like a sponge soaking up every new learning
with a quiet curious attitude. She has been in a stall for about a week and
today I decided to take her for a little walk for the first time.
Normally I would expect a foal stalled for a week to be a bit excited (let
alone one that isn't really halter broke yet).
She marched right out of the stall and quietly followed me down the lane and
back. Stopped when I asked her to stop,
walked-on with very little coaxing from me... just a gem! I am totally
smitten with this special girl.
Mosaic seems to throw outstanding temperaments, size and colour!
Juno measures a little over 14 hands at 5 months, and she has several
siblings that are bigger!!
I highly recommend a foal from TVR!!

i luv your horses, foals, & colts their so
HI!! I would love to come visit. I
have always dreamed of owning horses. My husband and I where just
given two. We are learning. He loves Clydesdales and really
wants one. One of these days. Right now we have a paint mare and
I enjoy checking back on your site and seeing
the horses from each year. I bought one of Tonto's foals from 2004.
I am happy to say that Diesel is jumping 5 foot fences with ease and has a
At 17 hands he is powerful and playful. You have wonderful horses.
Keep it up!

Just bought a filly from TVR> haven't got her
home yet but I can hardly wait!! Lois has been super to deal with. I guess I
can say that TVR is a place where "dreams do come true"!!!!
thks Lois for helping me make "MY" dream come true!!
Your horses are really nice. I'm
thinking of getting a horse after college, I'm definitely contacting you
about getting a foal then.
Hello! My mother purchased Royal Champion 'Champ' for me, and he is an
amazing horse. We have already bonded like crazy, and I love him to bits. He
is gentle, kind, and I have never sat a canter like his! I wouldn't trade
him for the world. I get comments from people saying how shiny and beautiful
he is :D! Champ is very special.
Thank you so much
British Columbia, Canada
HI! These are Fabulous horses! I rescued a
draft/bred/mustang? cross and she's a darling. She could be Champ's
sister. Same shorter neck, big body and totally bold spirit! Smart, FAST,
level headed and came back from her neglect with amazing grace. I would
recommend the draft cross to anyone looking for a family, hunting, trail
horse ... well any use! Twin Valley Ranch has fabulous stock! Excellent
combinations of breeds! WOOHOO Sport Horses!
Maeve Ross-McKee, jewelry designer & life long horse lover
In 2007 I purchased Daisy's spirited colt out of Apache and due to a unique
patch on his neck my husband named him "Moose". Along with
him I bought a sturdy filly out of Candy and Buck whom we call
"Molly". Moose was somewhat shy at first but Molly was
tolerant and patient with my grooming and attentions from the start.
Seeing her lack of fright it took less than a week for Moose to become a
darling who was also tolerant but affectionate as well. Within that
first week they learned not only to be groomed all over but also to allow me
to pick up, clean, and trim hooves, to be walked up to in the open, haltered
and led along quietly for walks, to come at a whistle for a carrot or bucket
of oats, and to go back to the stable on their own come dusk! All in
all I am utterly amazed at how intelligent, charming and gentle they are and
would highly recommend any interested people to obtain one or more of TVR's
fabulous foals! They are truly outstanding!

I just purchased SS Black's 2007 filly by
Apache. She is the smartest, most level headed young horse I have met. She
also has beautiful movement and great conformation with long straight legs
and good clean knees. She is such a pretty little thing (well not very
little! LOL) and I am SO SO SO happy to have her! People keep asking me why
couldn't I have found a foal in my area, instead of purchasing from half way
across the province, and I tell them I wouldn't trade her for a second. I am
very pleased with my decision to purchase from Twin Valley and I plan to
again in the future. Lois was very helpful and understanding and kept me
updated as much as possible until I was able to bring my girl home.
I have named my filly TVR'S Classified Elegance aka "Classy"
Thank-you so much!
Hi, I was looking at your website and you have
got some gorgeous horses!!
Hi, I haven't been to your ranch ever,
but from your website it looks like a real nice place! I like just
coming on to see your horses. Champ is my favorite! I also love
the Tobiano's in your logo. I don't mind if you post this
message, the other comments are very nice. Just thought I'd
leave a little note!...
Hi, I'm from Manitoba too and your site is
awesome. I've wanted to buy a horse for sooo long now but my dad won't
let me (I'm only 13).
But anyways your site rocks!!!!!!!
I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed the
vacation at your ranch.
I have been on 3 before and yours has by far been the best.
It was fascinating to watch the way you work with your horses,
I would have enjoyed the visit just for that experience alone!
Thank you for giving me the opportunity to photograph your beautiful
your babies were even better than I expected.
I now have a huge bank of reference photographs for future paintings.
Your stallions are all fabulous, but the highlight for me was photographing
He is magnificent; watching him circling the truck with that
metallic gold hide of his shining in the sunlight was unforgettable!
The scenery around the ranch is gorgeous, there was so much to photograph
there too..... and Lois, your meals are just delicious!
Thank you Lois and Michael for opening your home to us and making us feel so
welcome. You are raising a family to be proud of there, in fact you are all

Ranch Vacation 2007
I took part in the ranch vacation this year and it was awesome! Lois,
Michael, Jessica, Brooklyn, Hanna and Zane are a wonderful family.... you
made me feel like I was part of the family. Thanks so much!
Thanks so much for letting me help round up the stallions (utterly
breathtaking), helping with the horses, sorting mares and foals, and letting
me help with trimming the manes (so sorry Sadie!)
Trail riding, picnic in the valley, visiting the herds, meeting all
the horses (Mosaic...what a gorgeous boy.... and Peacetime..such a great
temperament, Buck took my breath away!)
Your "Ranch Vacation" was so much fun.... I hope that there
will be more in the future! I would definitely come to your ranch again!
A great family, a gorgeous farm and surroundings, exceptionally
beautiful horses... what more could a person want in a vacation?
I had a wonderful time, Thanks again! :0)

I LOVE your website. I am a photo-buff and

like such a lovely and peaceful place with so many friendly people and
horses. Maybe one day I will visit Manitoba and stop by to see you!
Thanks for the wonderful website,
Hello! Your horses are all amazing...I

i could be there to love all of them up..anyways great job guys...

(hopefully in 2008)!
Heather D. - Calgary, AB
I FINALLY purchased my TVR horse....
after 5 years of dreaming! I can sum
up my TVR experience in one word.... AMAZING! Lois is so great to deal
the horses they breed and raise are outstanding. My 2006 filly by
x Simba, Miss Samantha Jones... aka "Sam" is such a beautiful
fit right in at the barn here in 2 days!! The temperaments,
all-around quality of their horses are second to none. Do not hesitate
buy from The Drielick's... these are top-notch animals... And let me tell
you, they are even better than the pictures (and the pictures she takes are
wonderful). This has been a great buying experience for me... I plan
back for some more! :0)

I just recently stumbled onto your site and I'm now hooked on your Dreamer X

Hey, everyone! I love this site! Even though I've
never bought a horse from here... everyone I know says that they sell great
horses! I hope to one day get a foal and train it myself! That would be

horses on this site don't work out I hope you find the perfect horse! So
y'all can enjoy having the perfect horse as much as I have. Thanks for
reading this comment!
Always, Sara~Cat Georgia
The 2006 foals have started to be born and there cute
as always hoping
for a happy foaling for all the rest of them.
I absolutely loved your website. Such a
beautiful place. I will visit again.
Your WEBSITE IS REALLY cool
This is my first year dealing with Lois and Michael at Twin Valley Ranch.
First of all let me say that I am from the old school and not easily
impressed, but boy did they ever impress me. From the start of the
purchase process where I called on one foal to the end of our transactions
where I ended up with 9 foals. Lois was a pleasure to deal with and
the stock is without a doubt, one of a kind bloodlines. They have put
a lot of thought into their breeding and it shows in the end result. I
can say that if anyone is looking for horses of this nature to look no
further. The pictures are great but when my 9 foals finally arrived I
was totally amazed. Thanks Again
SAM LUDLAM ROCK HILL, SOUTH CAROLINA
It was so neat to be able to come and visit TVR, Michael and Lois Love their
Animals so much and take such great care of them. I wouldn't have ever
thought to buy a horse on line, that I hadn't met before, but these horses
are a dream come true! So happy and well bred, Thank you so much for these
wonderful horses! And I can't wait to see Bucks babies next year!

My family bought Dutchess' filly and have never

I have the accommodations for a horse. You really have incredible horses and
I admire your facilities and especially your herds
hello, I am on my 3rd choice of foals, as I fall in

mind. thanks Lois, for helping me . I will tell everyone to contact
you for a great riding horse and good people to work with. Mildred

This is for
anyone that might be thinking about buying a baby from TVR.
Don't hesitate!! Lois is wonderful and will answer any
questions you might have and will give you GREAT advice on
which baby will suit your riding needs. She will send you
pictures from any angle to help you "see" your
baby, and when it comes time to ship, the ranchers use VERY
reputable people to bring your baby home. This is a wonderful
way to have a quality horse!!!!

Hi there, I
just wanted to say (though I'm sure you hear it all the time)
that your horses are absolutely gorgeous. I have a
mystery draft cross gelding, and I can say he has the most
wonderful temperment ever. I really like the spotted
drafts- they are so unique and well built. Keep up the
good work. If I had endless funds I'd certainly get
one, but being a horse-person, I'm naturally broke all the
IF YOU BUY OR ARE THINKING ABOUT BUYING ONE OF PALS FOALS LET
YOU CAN E-MAIL ME AT firstname.lastname@example.org
thank you every body.
THIS IS AN REALLY REALLY REALLY GOOD SITE
I would just like to say
that finding a Pmu operation that takes such good care of
their horses as you guyz have is like trying to find a needle
in a haystack. It almost brings tears to my eyes.
I honeslty have to say that i wouldn't back up the PMU
industry but your horses look fantastic..really
fantastic. Your horses look in great conditiona and
they are truely lovely and your foals and
stallions...WOW. I would like to say that the horse
industry is truely blest to have horses owners like you guys.
If every one could treat horses like you guys (even tho i
haven't seen you with the horses but i trust that they are
treated with respect) the horse world would be a whole
different place. Right now i am trying to fight for the
freedom of about 3 horses that are in desperate need of help
to get away from where they are living. so far it isn't
looking good but i'm not giving up!! i saved my horse but i
believe i can save a couple more!
GOOD LUCK with your horses to come. And WOW our doing an
amazing job..keep it up!
I purchased four horses from Twin Valley Ranch in 2004.
I wanted to let potential buyers know that my experience has
been wonderful. Lois has been very helpful in answering
questions and helped find horse transportation. The
Drielicks are very honest and knowledgeable, so buy with
confidence! Because most of us are used to tire kicking
and trying our horses in person, I wanted to ease any worries
potential buyers may have about buying a horse
"on-line"! My three yearlings and one mare
were in EXCELLENT health & well maintained, and honestly,
even better than the pictures! The horses' condition

Well Michael and Lois you have done it again, another great
year for foals, as I said before I can't tell you how happy
and I am with the two I have purchased from you, I got Black
Tie Affair and my friend Joe had Bardot, Inspected and

It has so many foals and horses.
I wish I could buy all of the foals and horses because of
This is an awesome site!
Dear Lois and all the Drielicks,
I just have to say that this has been a fantastic
experience. Having started out with one and ending up
with three,(!) I feel confident in highly recommending you
and your horses to anyone. Dealing with you has been an
absolute pleasure as you are informative, fair and SO helpful
in every way. And of course, the quality and temperament of
these foals are exceptional. Again, I would recommend you and
your foals to anyone!
Greensboro, North Carolina
just wanted to say you guys have some BEAUTIFUL babies!
And seeing your beautiful Paint Perch X stallions makes me
wish we were breeding our mares this season; they are
gorgeous. I loved looking at all your pictures- your horses
look so beautiful and and healthy. It's wonderful to see that
there are other horse people out having fun with their herd.
:) I've been surfing the web looking for PMU Perch/TB foals
for foxhunting and I came across your page- I am very
impressed with the work you've done. Thanks for making me
smile tonight! :)
had to send you a more personal thank you, but am almost at a
loss for words.
I love my filly to death. You guys breed some awesome horses
and I just couldn't be more thrilled with mine.
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!
You are a true standout in the industry and I am so
I will be sure to send you updates & photos and I
certainly always be checking your website...who can resist!
proud owner of "Rogue" (Ghost x Chief 2004 filly)
Wow. I was surfing the net trying to find "some poor PMU
horse to save" and ran across your site. All I can say
is... I think my opinions have changed. I know some of the
rescue groups tend to glorify their work, but I had no idea
how wrong I could be. Your mares seem to be in wonderful
condition, and I looked CLOSE at the hooves in the pics and
didn't see any of the horror stories I've heard about. Your
foals all seem to be selling well, and I see you are selling
last years yearlings as well, so I assume none of your horses
end up in public auction or go to slaughter. I'm really
impressed. I have a question, since the PMU cutbacks... are
you planning on selling any of these lovely mares? I love the
foals, but I would rather NOT have to wait 4 years to have a
Jenn, Hardwick, VT
the PMU ranchers had websites like this, there wouldn't be
need for the PMU foal "rescue" groups.
This is great and I hope to buy one of your foals this year.

Ya'll have beautiful horses and foals this year! I wish i

Take care and God Bless.

Thank you for making our buying experience with you so easy

I love my new mare and colt and they are doing excellent.
Your kindness and honesty was very appreciated
and allowed us to properly care for our new mare.
Thank you again.

Great web site as well!
Just wanted to tell
you what a beautiful crop of foals you have this year, but
all of your babies we have seen have been outstanding. This
is our favorite site, and my daughter and I spend a lot of
time looking at all your gorgeous horses, she even knows
their names! If my daughter outgrows her allergies (we are
crossing our fingers..) I will definitely be contacting you
for a couple of babies Lois! :0)
We can hardly wait to see next years babies with Quincy

Hello to all at Twin Valley
Ranch! I fell into your web site via a post from PRISM!
I was suppose to be working tonight but couldn't resist the
temptation to visit your web site. What a
delight......I have enjoyed the evening viewing all your
horses and learning about your family etc. I own a
Cleveland Bay, Belgian, Paint mare out of a TB. I really,
really love seeing all your draft crosses........they are all
so wonderful.........and suited for so many diciplines.
People ask me all the time what my mare's breeding is and
where she came from etc. I have owned my mare since she
was just a 3 yo. time passes too quickly and now she will be
15.....and I am getting older too.....She is my Field Hunter,
the very BEST!!!!!!! I look foward to visiting your web site
and dreaming ....all the horses that are on the site are
outstanding....!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I will most happily
pass on any inquiries about draft crosses etc. to your Twin
All the best in 2004
My sincerest congratulations on a job well done. It is
refreshing to see such a well-planned, thorough web site to
showcase your fantastic herd. I can't imagine how much time
it must take to keep the web site up to date - especially
during foaling season. It's great to see a family take great
pride in their animals and take the job of marketing so
seriously. I'll be in touch about the filly I want!

I just wanted to send you all a quick note to let you know
how Ano is doing! He is
stretching up at 17.1 and is turning more and more grayish
everyday. His back and barrel are completley covered in
dapples and the rest of him is doing the salt and pepper
thing. I have been competing with him this past month. He is
only showing on flat classes currently. His first outing on
April 10th, he placed 3rd twice and 4th once out of 13
horses. His next outing on April 24th, he knocked 'em dead
coming in 1st twice and 3rd once again out of 13 horses. He
brings up so much commotion wherever he goes. Everyone stops
and asks me about him. They cant believe his sheer size,
gentleness and absolutely stunning moves. Once the pictures
get developed I will send them and maybe you can post a few.
I just wanted to let you know how proud I am of my big baby
and that I am thankful for him every day.
We looked at your site and we really enjoyed it your horse's
are really beautiful. We've been to your farm and we think it
is lovely the Valley is breathtaking and the feeling of home
is so real. The picnic's we have down the Valley when we come
and the family get together's are wonderful memories for me
and my children and their children, thankyou. We can't wait
to come home again to see the family and take new pictures
especially one's where some of us city folk get stuck in the
snow up to our hips.
Until our next visit to the Ranch we will keep visiting the

Your layout with the stallions and the mares they are bred to
is totally superior to anything I've seen out there.

Keep up the great work!
Hi, just saw your web pages
at school today. They are lovely horses.
Marion, Binscarth, Manitoba
schooling Ano for the past couple of months I
have decided to give him the winter off.
I only trail ride him twice a week. I wanted to let him
finish developing - dont want to mess up those jumping beans
in his legs! :) I just wanted to let you know that you are
raising amazing jumping kids on your ranch. Ano has free
jumped 5'9" with ease in the arena and he absolutly
loves it. You point him at a jump and you can just see him
raise up and go. Thanks so much for everything.
Bianca, Charleston, South Carolina
great site to visit. I look forward to seeing what foals
arrive for 2004.
Charlene, Elk WA
I recently purchased from you Rachelle and Ember...two of the
most wonderful, well behaved, loving ponies for a xmas gift
to my sons. You not only sent me those wonderful
creatures but went out of your way to make sure they arrived
in time for Xmas. I wanted to thank you and your family
for your kindness. The horses are doing well and I look
forward to this summer when the boys can ride them with my
husband and I. All of your horses are magnificent and I
will continue to refer to your wonderful establisment. You
have shown me a better side of the PMU farms and I thank you
Yours truly, Rose and Andre

WHAT AWESOME HORSES YOU HAVE! I'VE BEEN SEARCHING FOR MY
FUTURE PLEASURE RIDING PARTNER IN LIFE, LOOKING AT PMU FOALS
AND I CAME ACROSS YOUR WONDERFUL WEBSIGHT....IT TRULY HAS
BEEN MY PLEASURE VIEWING THESE BEAUTIFUL HORSES. I WOULD LOVE
TO HEAR MORE ABOUT YOU AND INFORMATION ON ANY FOALS STILL FOR
SALE. MANY THANKS!
& Micheal! Well done, once again ! The foals from this
crop are outstanding. I want to personally thank you, for
pairing up the Sire & Dam of my filly, " Icey"
2002 crop. She has grown to a stunning young horse. I will
have the pleasure of training and showing her for many years
to come. Yes! she is of that quality and can she move!
Passersby, stop by the farm just to view the Blue eyed Filly
in our front paddock. Next year, I am seriously into
the Draft/Color crop of foals. Your method of caring and
selecting the appropriate match for each Horse is without
question, well thought out. Your horses look sound, solid,
healthy and happy.
Just outstanding! Thanks Again, Brigit Paul,
so much, Michael and Lois.
Treasure ( TVR Haida Treasure ) is everything we could have
ever hoped for. She is totally amazing, and we are head over
heels in love. I highly recommend anyone who is looking for a
great sport horse prospect to consider the wonderful babies
you breed. The care and time you put into selecting stallion
and mare matches shows in the quality of your foals. I dare
anyone to call these amazing babies a "byproduct of the
PMU industry". They are absolute top quality and you
would be hard pressed to find nicer babies anywhere!
When we get our own place and don't have to board, we will
definately be back for more!
Kim and Jessica , Nova Scotia
much bad press has been given to the pregnant mare urine
industry...all you ever see is the propaganda of 24/7 stall
confinement, and foals that are killed as soon as they hit
the ground. Your farm really dispells those
stories! Your mares seem truly lucky to be in your
care, and you have some of the most beautiful foals I have
EVER seen! Keep up the good work! I just wish I
lived closer to take a few of those babies off your

beautiful and healthy! Good Job!

Hi, Your babies are beautiful!
I have been checking back waiting for the blessed
events. Thank you so much for taking the time to share
pictures of these beautiful foals, and allowing so many horse
lovers to provide loving homes for these babies!
Your ranch looks beautiful, and your kids look like they
enjoy all the mares!
Wow, what a wonderful herd you have. You obviously care very
much for your horses!
A number of things impress me about your farm.
Your horses are lovely and solid...Well cared for and happy
They all have names and not just numbers.
You provide great information as to the size of sire and
dam...helpful for making estimates.
You market your own horses instead of just shipping them to a
You give the buyer a nice insight into your farm and family.
Looking forward to the 2003 babies....especially ours.

thoroughly impressed with your website, your operation, and
your photos! I've looked at a lot of websites for PMU
foals, and have found yours to be my favorite! Great

Speaking of a quality product, your horses and PMU foals look
gorgeous! I can't wait to see what your 2003 foals look
like! It appears your operation is well managed and
your horses well kept. I also love the idea of
paint/draft mixes -- just the type of horse I'm looking for!

I am sure you are really busy with running your farm but I
just had to email to say WOW(!)
about your foals! Keep up the good work, you are producing
some beautiful babies!
I just wanted to say how
much we appreciated all your time and effort as we
picked out all of our colts (9).(This signing of the guest
book is a little late...sorry.)
You were so easy to work with and made it very pleasant. I
would recommend doing business with you to anyone looking for
these type of horses. They really have added color to our
herd-big bonus! Hope to see you in 2003!

JOE DAY, TORONTO ONTARIO
I always wanted a coloured draft cross and when I came across
your website I fell in love.....and before I knew it I had
purchased a coloured colt, I would recommend Twin Valley
Ranch to anyone interested in buying a foal or horse , Lois
knew everything about both parents and previous foals they
had and took the time to answer many emails and calls
regarding the foals and what would be suitable for my riding
needs, through out the summer Lois kept me updated on his
progress and sending me pictures of him over the summer and
it didn't just end there, Lois also helped arrange
vaccinations and trailering. I felt very comfortable dealing
with her and
look forward to purchasing another in 2003.
Signed Very Happy Owner!

Very nice foals. I will watch for your 2003 foals.

Your mares and foals look wonderful! I'll be keeping this

What a beautiful picture of nature at its finest!
You are so lucky to have these horses and land. I hope to buy
one from you this summer.
Nicole, Avon, NY, USA
I was looking at your website, and I enjoyed it very much.
You have beautiful horses. I love your Percheron stallion!
As soon as I get my barn built I'll be calling about a draft
cross from your farm.
They just don't breed these type of horses here in Florida.

Thank you for suggesting that I visit your site. Because we
use to have Clydesdales,
I was especially interested in seeing your draft horses and
My favorite, however, is Buck. What a beauty he is!

I LOVE the looks of your horses. I think it's a great idea to
cross the drafts with a bit of color.
I also appreciated the personal touch you added to the
website by telling about your family!
I'll keep in touch.
I have enjoyed looking at your crop of 2001 foals.
