He is a cutting horse trainer (see Steve Oehlhof Cutting Horses) working out of the Rock Creek Ranch in Weatherford, Texas.
We were introduced to the wonderful world of Corgis while our children were showing horses. It was during that time we purchased our first corgi later to become Ch. Springmills Billy The Kid CD (see Rainbow Bridge). Billy became the first of many accomplishments for us. He was not only our first corgi he was our first Champion, our first Obedience Title, and the sire of our fist Homebred Champion. In 1993 we purchased Tillie from Gayle Garvin of Garvin Pembroke and Cardigan Welsh Corgis. Tillie, later to become Ch. Garvins Diamond Tiara. (see Rainbow Bridge) She was the real beginning of our Show Ring successes. We purchased and showed several dogs from Gayle, who has helped us along the way. In 1999 along with Pam Brannock of Calloway PWC we imported Jamie from Ken and Lily Beazley of Cinonnie PWC in England. Jamie soon to become Am. and Can. Ch. Cinonnie Rigel (see Rainbow Bridge) has set the standard we strive for today.
Since beginning showing and breeding in 1992 we strive to produce quality corgis for companions and showing. Take a look around our site to meet some of our dogs. Several of the dogs pictured are either co-owned or have been retired to a special home of their own.
