"She doesn't let her many handicaps stop her from loving life," owner Stephanie Moore says about Pown Pown. Photo courtesy of Stephanie Moore.
Two years ago, on January 21, 2013, AQHA breeder Stephanie Moore had no idea that this day would change her life forever. At her farm in Veersburg, Indiana, one of her mares gave birth to twin foals in five degree weather. Unfortunately, one died shortly after birth. Moore knew immediately that the surviving twin foal was something special. "She was full of spit and vinegar when she came out," Moore stated in an article we wrote about the sassy filly when she was born.

"I'm looking forward to the challenge of helping clients and horses of all different levels," Mellott states.
"All good things must come to an end." That's a saying that we have all heard often throughout the years. In the case of trainer, Jeff Mellott, he has ended an amazing chapter of his training career and is moving on to a new adventure. For the past 20 years, Mellott worked for Nancy Murfin-Moxley as the family's private trainer at her facility in Wichita, Kansas. With the Murfin family slowing down and no longer needing a private trainer, Jeff decided it was time to make a move.
