What is Sylvan Farms (NorthStar) doing these days? They were set up for weaners.
Judy has kind of pulled in her horns on breeding of late - the facility is now mainly training, I think. The trainer we had our young stud with last year is up there, and I believe at least one other trainer is working out of the barn.
Here's an update on my activities, so the info you guys have is accurate. We are breeding, although not as many because the market is slow right now. We now will keep the weanlings at my house rather than NSF, hence we are not boarding any weanlings this year. And more importantly we have 7, yes - count 'em, coming 3 and 4 year olds to start and get sold, not counting the young horses we plan to show this year. We also have two trainers working out of NSF, so it's pretty active right now.
Between the horses here and the ones we raise in Germany, I'm still in the game fairly deep. Once the riding age horses are sold, we'll increase the breedings again (altho don't tell my husband that....)

LOL, OK, mum's the word!
Sorry if I overstepped, all I know is what we got from trainer.... and that was last fall! We, too, are full up - tho with the older kids getting older - at least we can back them this fall - there's hope of having saleable horses soon. It seems NOBODY is buying youngsters under four lately unless they are dirt cheap
Try Cam and Carrie Reeves at Jones Farm. AMAZING place...often there are TB youngsters growing up there so they might have a place to fit in a young one with buddies. Also might look into TB farm El Dorado in Enumclaw. Also might be some young ones at Havilah in Enumclaw...not sure... Not sure if Summervale Farm is doing any boarding but might ask them...
I'll keep thinking on that and see who else I think of...
