Kaprikorn was begun in 1983 and is located in central NC.
I started out showing Keeshonds and was very successful with this
finishing many Champions awarding my foundation bitch, CH Ashbrook Sea Breeze, ROMX - Top Producer. Many of her offspring went on to produce many top quality show Champions
who in turn continued the tradition. After a major life change I dispersed my kennel and was just going thru the paces for many years.
Then in 2007 I discovered the Miniature Horse. I started out as most with a few "pocket ponies" and then got bitten by the "showbug". My first show experience was in 2009 and then I got serious in 2010 when I acquired AMHR Double K's Scottie Too Hottie, 50% Arenosa stallion. Under the expert hands of James Walsh - RHA Training Center, Scottie won the titles of 2010 & 2011 AMHR Reserve National Champion Stallion plus an additional 2 Top 5s . He also won 2011 AMHA World Top Ten Senior Stallion over a huge class of the best on the nation. After a rest period he returned in 2013 and finished his HOF HALTER as a senior stallion in just a few shows. But now in 2015, with the increase in my back problems, I am sadly ending my Miniature Horse program with much heartache.
So now a new door has opened, I have a new challenge.... the Miniature American Shepherd (Miniature Aussie). These fantastic little dogs are the perfect size for me to lift and I am looking forward to many fun years showing them. The Miniature American Shepherd (MAS) is now, as of July 1 2015, officially recognized by AKC !!!
Look for further info on the MAS page on my wonderful dogs.
