Our family has a great time together. We are sharing some family time with you in hopes of showing you how God's love has made us a "real family". The love we share for each other is the same love the Lord shares with us. He does it perfect, of course....we just do our best! We pray you can see His light shine in all of us and we hope to be "a city on the hill" for Him.

"The father of the righteous shall greatly rejoice: and he that begetteth a wise child shall have joy of him. Thy father and thy mother shall be glad, and she that bare thee shall rejoice" Proverbs 23


We live at the Hollow in a small Northeastern Missouri town. We are surrounded by God's beauty!  Our longing to be closer to the Lord's beautiful creations and raise our children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren in the country, brought us here.


Our family owns and operates a small State licensed kennel and we raise quarter horses, mini horses, llamas and chickens. We raise all of our own puppies and have raised most of our adults too! We are involved in every aspect of our business from assisting with the births, choosing food and medicines, grooming and doing the clean up to playing with the moms, dads and babies.


 Everyone in our family helps make this unique in many ways. Our puppies are very socialized and outgoing. We have more than one breed because we have more than one child. Every child wants something of "their own". The children own the moms and dads and love "their" babies from birth until the day your family takes over!


 We are very close to our vet, always asking for and using his advice and assistance in every aspect of our program. Our mission is to find the best families for our puppies. We loved them first!!! They go straight from our loving home to yours.


     We are a loving family that owns, responsibly breeds, trains and shows our own dogs. All of our mommy and daddy dogs live with us. We NEVER sell someone else's puppies. And we very firmly advocate against such places where animals are kept in unsanitary, often unsafe conditions and used only as tools for profit. We love our dogs and they are our very loved pets, every one of them!


We'd like to share our lives with you...............

so look around.
