Bonnie Novel Farm Stable Entrance

Bonnie Novel Farm is a small, family owned establishment, located at Monticello, Iowa, in North East Central Iowa. Even though the stable is located within the city limits, we have a semi rural setting. There are twenty two acres of pasture, with a creek running though the center of it. We have an eleven stall stable with several accompanying paddocks. We enjoy a wilderness setting where we often see deer, fox, eagles, geese, ducks and other wild life. On a summer evening it is a beautiful, pastoral setting to enjoy.
We have been breeding Saddlebred and Saddle Type Pinto horses for over twenty years. When the children became 4-H age, horses seemed to be the best large animal projects for them. We housed them in a rented stable at the local fairgrounds to begin with. We then moved to a rented barn in the country, before buying our current location. 
Over the years we have developed and shown several saddle type national Pinto halter and performance champions, PtHA Horse of the Year in several categories, and several PtHA register of Merit Champions.
Two of our breeding stallions earned the coveted Legion of Merit award. 

It is our goal to breed Pinto/Saddlebred horses that are quality individuals. Over the years we have endeavored to breed show and breeding stock that will stand the test in the show ring and on the breeding farm.

We have been fortunate to have stood some outstanding individual breeding stallions. Among them have been Lady's Jayhawk (PtHA), Creation's Supremium (ASHA/PtHA), Creation's Royal Commander (ASHA/PtHA) and Bonnie Novel Royal Fox (ASHA/PtHA). We are pleased to follow these sires with Bold Dakota, a son of Bold Alvin by Valley View Supreme. We are especially proud of this sire as he is a home raised individual.  Bold Dakota will continue his show career in 2007.  Watch for him this summer.

We recently added to our breeding program the black/bay ASHA stallion,
ARA Sultan's Great Victory. He will be bred to our pinto mares next spring. Another stallion addition is the ASPC/PtHA pony stallion, Echo's
High Interest S.R.

There are a number of Bonnie Novel Farmbred Saddlebred/Pinto stallions standing in this country and Canada. Several of the fillies bred here have become the dams of stallions whose services are being offered to the public. We have been pleased to know that individuals bred at Bonnie Novel Farm are doing so well.
We have a small band of brood mares, which we believe are capable of producing top breeding and show horses that can compete in both Saddlebred and Pinto arenas. Many of them carry old mid-western and old saddlebred blood lines in their pedigrees. Please see the foals expected nect year.
We were not active in showing or breeding for the several years. However, I have now retired from my professional career, and have returning to the show ring and the breeding of Pinto/Saddlebreds. My married daughter, Corlyn Longer-Schreck has made the commitment to be the show rider for her dad. We look forward to renewing old friendships and making new friends!
So, the coffee pot is on. Come visit us, and share a cup of coffee as we talk horse!
