OZARK STAINED GLASS & PATTERNS
Info about Ozark Stained Glass by Sandy
Thought I should tell you a little bit about me. I am married to the love of my life, Bill, and we will celebrate our 40th anniversary on Sept. 5, 2011 ! Wow, doesn't seem that long ago.
Besides making stained glass patterns, panels and stepping stone, we own and operate a Jersey Dairy farm. We started milking in 1989, and has been a wonderful life. The cows have paid for everything. Their milk has paid for a hay barn, the dairy barn and equipment, a large loafing shed, a large horse barn and our log home we built ourselves. Currently we are milking 62 head of Jersey and Jersey x Milking Shorthorn, we thought we would be retired by now. Milk prices are so good now we have decided to keep milking in 2011 and probably 2012 unless something comes up. We will, however, be selling all the baby calves, bulls and heifers in 2012. We have plans to shut down from Jan. 1 to March when the cows start calving again. At least that will give us a little break.
We also have a herd of Reg. Missouri Fox Trotting horses. We got into the Curly haired Reg. Missouri Fox Trotter horses about 8 yrs ago when we purchased Sir Patrick's Maximum and his mother Walker's Spook. Sir Patrick Maximum, Max, was sold in 2007 to an allergist doctor in Germany where he is now one of their many stallions! To date he is the highest selling Curly haired MFTHBA horse! We now have a son of Max's named
Maximum's Pride. He will be 3 yrs. old this year. Pride should be a 100% curly haired producer when bred to any mare. Max was only a 50% curly producer when bred to straight haired mares. First picture is Max, second one is his son, has some more growing to do, he is only 2 in this picture. Maximum's Pride is now sold and living a happy life in Nevada on a curly horse farm.
Curly haired horses are hypo-allergenic to most people that are allergic to horse hair! So allergy suffers that love horses can now own a horse!
Third picture is of another stallion we own, Walker's Prince T #3 and he is also a curly Reg. MFTHBA. Prince 3 is a direct son of Walker's Prince T #2 who is a direct son of Walker's Prince T. This line of curly haired horses is what started most of the Curly MFTHBA horses their are today. Today there is less than 125 Reg. Curly haired MFTHBA horses! Right now we have 30 horses! About half are curly haired and you can view my
Curly Horse Website
Fourth picture is of Pride's Permanent Wave, he is the only known Curly haired Reg. Missouri Fox Trotting Pony Registry! He only stands 12.2 hands and is a beautiful Chocolate Silver with Flax Mane and Tail. He also has 2 Blue Eyes. He will be 3 yrs. old in 2010!
Below is a few pictures of some of our mares, fillies and foals. 1st picture is our my mom, that at age 85 still loves to ride horses!
So, that is a little bit about us. I am hoping that with my Bill's retirement I can focus more on patterns and panels for resale.
Oh almost forgot, I am a Sales Manager with Conklin Company and have been for 8 yrs. I totally love and use all the products, from the Building products to Animal Fastrack Microbials to the Vehicle lubes to keep everything running smoothly an efficiently. Cost to save 30% to 40% off retail price is only 25.00 with a 50.00 order within 30 days.
Thank you everyone that has purchased patterns, had me make custom patterns or had me make stained glass or stepping stones for them. I really enjoy the pictures you send me of your finished panels from my patterns. So please email them to me so that I can add to this website.
Hopefully, this year, will be the first time in YEARS we will be able to go horse back riding! Happy Trails! Sandy
