A Look into the Past...

Joker Joe is a domestic Arabian. This means his ancestors, grandmothers and grandfathers, have been in the United States for five generations, dating back to 1909.  At this time most of his ancestors were brought into the United States from Great Britain.

Through the generations the Arabian horse was developed and raised with a strict program. Joker Joe is a fine example of the inherited blood lines of his ancestors.

"A Little Bit of Joe" tells the wonderful heart warming story of this extraordinary horse.

Join Joe and I on the long struggle, to become healthy and strong enough to reach our quest to become the best that we could be.

Ride a  Horse

Whether it's a stick horse, a rocking horse or a horsy-back ride, most children seem to love horses. Help them to pretend. Of course, if there is an opportunity for them to ride a real horse, most children will love the opportunity and the experience.

Arlene E. Turk


   Arlene E. Turk was born on January 9, 1938, in Renton, Washington. She is the daughter of a brick layer and a homemaker.

   Her extraordinary love for horses drove her to work odd jobs, enabling her to save up enough money to buy her first horse, Sheiba, at the age of 13.

   In 1967 she married her husband, Henry, a Montana native, and they moved back to Montana. Together they raised 6 children and have 10 grandchildren.

   After living with and loving animals her entire life and driving a school bus in the harsh conditions of Central Montana, she realized that she should write a book for all of the children.

This book is about the wonderful experiences of raising an orphaned foal, a gift from Mother Nature.

   This charming book will be enjoyed by all ages, telling of the many situations that the filly named, Mariah, manages to survive.
