Foaling at Mountaintop Ranch
Mountaintop Ranch breeds our own top mares each year and routinely has an outstanding crop of eye-catching, one-of-a-kind foals. These registered foals will be out of our own Stallion Alley and reflect the magnificence of their superior breeding.
Take Advantage of Our State-of-the-Art Imprinting Process
All foals born on the ranch are imprinted at birth. This two-week process firmly imprints the foal, cementing a bond between human and horse. Imprinting done by our specially trained staff has elevated to such a high standard that our Master Breeder has been teaching this state-of-the-art process and techniques to vets, other breeders, trainers and horse owners.
We specialize in foaling out mares with our top notch foaling staff. We see to the best possible foaling conditions and safety standards for mare and baby .We are then able to employ our state-of-the-art imprinting process on each and every foal, just as we do on our own.
Mountaintop Ranch's Imprint Training is featured in the America Paint Horse Journal Jan 2007 edition.
Imprinting: the foal learns...
to be caught and to be haltered, lead independently, stand tied, accept clippers,spray bottles,brushing,blow drying,and bathing. Feet are picked up daily and they are taught to keep all 4 feet on the ground at all times
Massage techniques are used on all foals for accepting tail pulls in order to safely take temperatures and relax the spine.

Yesterday there was a group of inner city children visiting my farm. Only one of them had ever touched a horse before. They just adored Abby. I couldn't believe how she not only tolerated but seemed to love the noisy group of little children surrounding her. She gave kisses all around. We are so delighted with her!
