I'm so proud of my granddaughter, Skylan, who rode Foothills River Queen in her first horse show (not on a lead line)!). It was the Smoky Mountain Horse Show Series (SMHSS) this one held at the McMinn County Park. She rode exceptionally well, using all the skills she has worked on practiced so hard, and also was super organized. I announced for the show part time, so I gave her the list of classes that she was entered in, and she made sure to get tacked up and into the arena on time, memorized her showmanship pattern and groundrail courses, and knew what was required in each class, mostly on her own! Super proud of number 99!!!!

Steel is really coming along with his training by Andy Blevins! (June 2020)

Congratulations to Julie Keahey on the arrival of an adorable colt by her stallion, Ceili Mosi oa Tunya, out of my mare, Corner Oak Celtic Star! (May 29, 2020)

Inquiries, please contact Elli by email elli.bops@gmail.com phone or text 706-414-1876

Welcome home Providence Carson! Carson, my driving pony, is back home from a great introduction into undersaddle work with Elli Niesen at Bay of Plenty. He now does W-T-C, jumps and goes out with hounds. I'm so proud of him, he is so willing to learn and do, and grateful to Elli for his solid undersaddle beginnings! (May 2020)

Fun times as Skyview Farm (Sharon Cannon) running Chota and Desi through the jump chutes. Chota found it very invigorating; Desi was very chill, but WOW, what scope! We stopped with her at 4 feet, only because she was being lazy that day LOL

In May of 2020, my heart horse, Balmullo's Beacon, was laid to rest and is buried in his paddock here at Foothills Farms, Athens, TN. I have been so blessed by this perfect little horse and will cherish every year and day that we had together. Many others had the opportunity to ride, compete and fall in love with him, too. His legacy lives on in many of the 60+ foals he sired. I am heartbroken, but memories of the happy and joyfilled days with him with forever live in my heart.

Conceived at Foothills Farms, Athens, TN, Topgun is full sibling to Foothills Smokey Bay, both by *Gun Smoke, out of Ballywhim Candace (aka Phoebe) .
Congratulations to Topgun's owners, Jim and Nancy Kilcrease, Elderglen Farm, FL!!!!
