weeks post-op, the entire thigh turned black & blue swelling & 4 long days were spent in incredibly pain straight-
until the 8" long incision burst open,apparently the result of a growing abscess. My daily battles with my own
body continue & since the surgery I've lost ground. The ongoing, destruction of the large muscles of my thigh
continue, with horrific disfigurement & constant pain leaving me never knowing what I will be able to wear on
what days. The simple act of dressing-limited to sweats or compression breeches/tights is still almost impossible

A special long time dream in the making, is finally coming to fruition. With a brick & mortar store at Sweetwater
Farms, we may also take some our portable show shop on the road. Based on market needs, as assessed by
experienced horsemen for horsemen, the Grand Re-Opening of The Silver Stirrup Studio for Horse Enthusiasts &
Lovers, and the Equestrian & Riding public is upcoming!
Also, during 2016, Cape Cod Equine LLC will sponsor what we hope competitors & spectators alike will enjoy,
with the events taking place at Sweetwater Farms.
Our love for Appaloosas, combined with a devotion to the Appaloosa has created a drive within us that for the
past 40 years has welcomed horse enthusiasts from all breeds to get spotted on an Appaloosa-doing whatever
you enjoy riding to do! At Sweetwater Farms we've got you covered!
Still...life goes on...
physical builds encouraging long-term soundness, and willing mindsets which believe is a combination of assets
that can be geared towards equine excellence in a variety of competitive events-and often for the long haul.
Many Sweetwater horses enjoy unusually long show careers, as Youth & NonPro Horses. Throughout their show
careers many have always seemed capable of giving a heartfelt competitive effort at whatever a rider would
decide to try, while also remaining sound & happy. Having a pleasant attitude is as essential & important as being
well trained with regard to horses-whether prepping for Nationals or tacking up for trail riding.
At Sweetwater Farms in addition to our Appaloosa horses, stallion services, sales and boarding, we also provide
today's competitors and equine enthusiasts with what's needed to compete successfully in events from local to
the World levels. From maintaining show rigs, wheel bearings, winterizing, camper repairs-to offering the latest in
Ready to Win show apparel, with some super coordinating tack, & plenty of finishing touches, including some
handy farm & trail riding gear-we've got you covered.
Over the years the needs of the family & farm evolved, bringing about some changes to Sweetwater Farms, not
the least of which was changing from a show farm to a breeding farm. Other exciting happenings was the addition
of The Silver Stirrup Studio as a Show Boutique & Model Horse Shop, perfect for Breyer, Artists Resins, Peter
Stone & other model enthusiasts who show, collect &/or display their models, along with suitable custom made
dolls, riders, tack and props.
In December of 2002, a severe neuropathy caused by tumors in Laurie's upper thigh putting constant pressure on
the large peripheral sensory nerve that runs from the spinal cord, down the side of the leg was diagnosed. After
having spent 4 spacey years in bed & 10 in a wheelchair, the proposed surgery to cut the tumors was presented
as the only option left.

producers of Appaloosa Excellence.
