Welcome to Yellowstone Valley Farms!

This is a model horse pedigree assignment site. None of the horses on these pages are real. Any reference to real horses is strictly for educational and entertainment purposes.

Yellowstone Valley Farms is located in southern Montana along the prairies and badlands overlooking the Yellowstone River, with scenic views of the Beartooth, Pryor, and Bighorn mountains to the south. We specialize in cow horses and Thoroughbred race horses.

I grew up a horse-crazy kid, who couldn't have a horse, and began collecting model horses in the mid 90s. I've been involved in the model horse hobby off and on since then, occasionally participating in live and photo shows, am pretty involved in Thoroughbred racing through NAMTOBA, customize models when I've got bodies around, and have been obsessed with pedigree assignment since I first read about it in JHH. I have a general hobby blog if you'd like to know more. I expect that it will often cover pedigree assignment activities.

I hope you can find something you like here at YVF, and don't hesitate to drop me a line if you need more information on a horse, or even if you just want to chat pedigrees. :)
