    Default Thanks-A-Lot farm in Illinois?

    Just wondering if anyone has any experience dealing with this farm and the trainers/family associated with it. Thanks!

    Is this real?

    Seems like an interesting choice of name if true.

    I have been there, they seem to be honest dedicated horse people. They always have a lot of horses for sale.

    LOL, I like that name. It's original and funny.
    I'm not in that area though, so have never heard of it.

    Thanks Woodland! I'm debating on emailing on one of the sale horses on their website, and wanted to know if they were honest/reputable before I wasted everyone's time!

    Yep, they're real. And from what I've heard they're honest too.
    Tell a Gelding. Ask a Stallion. Discuss it with a Mare... Pray if it's a Pony!

    yes, Yes! Not snotty at all. I bought a beautifully trained four year old gelding from them last year. They are terrific. Not fancy-shmancy, but dead honest. PM me for more info.

    Kind of funny that this thread started now. I used to show against the girls way back in the day and had just asked a mutual friend how they were doing and was informed of their farm. From what I remember, they were hard workers - weren't about the glitz and glam at all, but sat on some nice horse flesh. I would assume those traits are still running strong.

    I have dealt with them personally, and know several others who have too. No complaints, here.

    I have dealt with them several times -and had very good experiences. Agree with other -no glitz and glam but down to earth hard workers.

    I also have dealt with them and have nothing but good things to say! Dead honest people, hard worker, nice horses and they are realistically priced.

    Ps. the name comes from their initials...
