A sweet & very kind, coming 4yo, 16-16.1 hand
Brabant/Percheron Cross mare that Rides & Drives awesome!
A very well put together mare!
Blueberry is the whole package, beauty & brains!!!!
This blue beauty loves attention & affection of any kind. She's not only beautiful but she rides & drives - double or single great!
Very Traffic safe, VERY willing to try new & scary things. We've taken Blueberry to our local public park and exposed her to an electric dam, strollers, bicycles, bridges, screaming/crying children, lots of traffic, barking dogs, geese, tight squeezes, close walls, sidewalks, speed boats, and much more, and none of these bothered her in any way!
Blueberry has No buck, no rear, no silliness, just a lovely, very laid-back mare. Would prefer to follow on the trails because her pace is slower on the trails but will lead when asked.
Blueberry gets along great in a herd/ pasture setting, is not marish or alpha. She's never in hurry unless asked & will not rush back to the barn. Blueberry is great on or off trails. Her gaits are lovely, her trot is amazing, the kind you can sit & ride all day!
If your wanting a full figured, flashy gal that is a great family horse that loves children, tolerates strollers, screaming babies, Rides & drives wonderful, then here's your girl.
Blueberry also: ties, loads, hauls & stands for the farrier without stalks.

I highly recommend The Good Shepherd Ranch to anyone looking for a gentle well-trained driving and riding horse or wanting to learn to drive. They have many beautiful horses. I recently bought Ella from the ranch and couldn't be happier with her, she is everything they described her to be and more! I have been taking driving lessons with Francesca and Tiffany and they are wonderful instructors, very knowledgeable and professional! I was able to purchase all the needed equipment to get started and have it fitted for Ella. Francesca and Tiffany have provided an ongoing resource to make sure I am successful with my new driving skills!
Early in October 2019 I purchased/adopted the horse Ria from Good Shepard. She is exactly what she was claimed to be and I am very pleased to be her new owner. It was wonderful to be given truthful information and I would recommend Good Shepard to anyone looking for a a horse.
Hey Francesca I just rode the Clydesdale I bought from you, Lindy! I just wanted to tell you that that this is one of the best started horses I have ever sat on. You had been so professional, helpful, & a pleasure to do business with!
I generally never buy horses that are already started by other people. Your training is unparalleled.
Her manners & sweet disposition reflects what a top notch operation & eye for a horse you have!! Her riding cues such as stopping, turning, confidence, & soft mouth are perfect! Extremely athletic & balanced
I knew she was special, but this is far more then I could have expected! We love her!!!! I would never buy a draft or cross from anyone else!! Thank you!

Wonderful place, wonderful people. What else can I say? Kind people who do amazing work with horses. Will be referring those in need to them! As well as anyone looking to buy or adoot a correctly trained horse.
Got the horse of my dreams.
Thank you for making that come true for me.
Great company to deal with. Francesca was very understanding about what I was looking for and found a wonderful draft cross filly for my next riding/driving horse. that k you so much!
Brittany is a perfect lady on the ground and stands like a rock when mounting and dismounting. We are learning each other and she is a sweet thing who is eager to please. She is now striding out and trotting freely and having fun with poles, obstacles, and other challenges to keep her entertained! Thank you so much for this incredible gem!!

"Just wanted to put my 2 cents in review.
My name is Ed Wills, owner/Operator of GE Carriages. I have bought 4 of our horses through The Good Shepherd Ranch and have nothing but very high regards for them. All that I have gotten from them was exactly what they told me I was getting. There was no surprises when I got them home. If you're looking for a horse, trail, Ride and drive, or a young one that you can bring up yourself, The Good Shepherd Ranch is your go to ranch."
Jessie Mueller recommends The Good Shepherd Ranch.
"We purchased our first horse, an 8 year old Clydesdale cross mare from The Good Shepherd Ranch and had such a wonderful experience. Our horse arrived in good health with the sweetest temperament. She’s everything they said she would be and more. I highly recommend getting your horse from here, especially if you’re new to horses and want a partner that is well trained and well loved. You won’t be disappointed."
