Welcome to our CURRENT NEWS page. Hope what you find here will answer your questions. Or call me for more information.  [308-946-4374]

Some may wonder why we are called "Triple D Paints". Back in the 1990's we lived in Grand Island & offered riding lessons & training which was given by Denny, Diane & Danyal. We were drawn to APHA purchasing our 1st one here in Nebraska. So, it seemed fitting to be Triple D Paints. So that's SIMPLY IT... 

 After a long dry hot summer to this point, the hay supply seems to be short. The cost will indeed rise as fuel and supply come into play. We are thankful that even with these challenges, there is still feed to be found with 300 put in the barn.

We have added some pedigree photos for our two stallions. Do check            them out on each stud's respective page, SIMPLY IT & HUSTLERS GOLD TEMON.  I'm sure you'll like what you see.

We have also added a picture collage of each stallion's get on their respective page.  Check those new pictures out as well.

Check out our new VIDEO Page for full listing of fun viewing.

Do check back here to find the new adventures for the coming year as plans get agreed upon for next year's season. New projects are always fun and challenging.

Be sure and scroll through the news and pictures posted below for current happenings here at the ranch. Life ticks on and waits for no one. It's fun to share the progress of each project with the horses. Thanks for checking in here.

Spring 2023 will be here with new babies arriving as well. Exciting times for sure!

How fun to see this filly, Cinnamon, growing into such a beautiful and stylish 7 month old.

Congratulations to Don & Judy Shuda. She seems to be showing some roan on her hip.  It'll be exciting to see what color she sheds out as in the spring.

Spring will put another baby on the ground with this combo. Check here for those new baby pictures.

How quickly this year has ticked away. As you plan for your 2023 horse season and are considering breeding your mare, Rafe is more than able to service her. He is a 2005 model who looks and preforms much younger than his age. We have kept several of his get through the years as well as selling them to outside buyers. As in all breedings, it's about the cross. Do check out the STALLION BARN for additional information.

The beautiful fall weather provides opportunity to do a little 6 month old training with Misty. While some may wonder the purpose of umbrella training, getting your horse introduced to this unusual item certainly could be a huge benefit if someone pops open an umbrella at a horse show, trail ride or even riding in a parade. Little Misty proved she's not moved by this distraction. First time for her to be tied, then with tarp and umbrella training it was a win win for everyone. Dawn always reminds me, she's not a horsey rider, but Harley rider. She stepped up with confidence to accomplish the task! Expect great things out of this filly!


It was a hot day and these 2 are great stall buds. WatchMistyHustle has adjusted to life without mom. They still do talk across the fences, but this little girl figured out where her feed now comes from, and it's not mom any more. It usually takes about a week before those babies realize mom is not returning.

Maggie makes a great step mom. She's always nice to her little sister. Some day she'll make a great mom when she has her own babe.


                       WEANING DAY

The day of separation is always on the calendar when those babes reach that age of maturity. While they are never excited about not having mom, it's a process for growth. WatchMistyHustle has been no different than past babies as she did lots of calling for mom. Made it through first night and the next couple of days will bring her into understanding that her life is now without mom. Her two sisters are stepping up to babysit her and getting back to pasture with the herd will be a couple of weeks away. This little filly is registered black, but lots of time in the sunshine has bleached out her hair coat color. She's going to be that smoky black color and next spring will give a certain preview of her color. Her future is not clear, but whatever she does, it will be with lots of style.

August 2022

How quickly the hot summer has ticked by. While the rain has been sparse, and the hay supply will be short and expensive, we have confidence that our God will indeed walk us through those difficult times as we remain in Him. Fear will cause us to act in haste while faith conquers all our worries as we must rest in Him. Remember:

"Without "faith" it's impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He exists and that He is a rewarder of those that diligently see  Him." Hebrews 11:6

"See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, redeeming the time because the days are evil. Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is." Ephesians 5: 15-17



When the temperatures soar, the stall with a fan is desired by all. And getting along is not an option if you want the shade. So, they all share the fan, hay and water putting down plenty of deposits.

Congratulations to Keir and Rowdy on their great showing at the County Fair this year. What a handsome duo they are. 

As Res. Halter Gelding, Rowdy certainly was a stand out. His color and markings makes him a carbon copy of his sire, HustlersGoldTemon. We are all thrilled with this colt and his owner. Fun future days are indeed coming!
