VIEW SLIDES OF OUR FAMILY & PETS
Our farm was established in 1914 and now consists of
approx 2500 acres of
deeded & leased
farm ground and
approx.1000 acres of range. We are located 2 miles South of
Lexington, Oregon in the foothills of the beautiful Blue Mountains
of Eastern Oregon. We are only 45 minutes away from Interstate 84
and Hermiston, Oregon. Munkers Farms is operated by Barry and Mary
We maintain a top quality herd of quarter
horses & a small herd of
cows for beef & horse training. We grow hay & grain for crops.
UP ON THE FARM: Our horses
live in fields with all types of terrain ranging
from steep bluffs and creek beds to irrigated pasture. This
teaches the babies how to handle their feet
& also they are
in a natural, healthy, happy environment. The whole herd
will run off those bluffs at full speed & never miss a step.
Sometimes I just have to close my Eyes!! This is such an advantage
their futurity year as they can handle all types of arena footing!
They truly love people. All you have to do is call them and
the whole herd comes running to you! By running in herds, they
also learn how to get along with other horses. All my
horses have great dispositions.
Our horses all have a tremendous amount of speed, but
also the desire to turn on their own. They can run fast
and think at the same time…. excellent minds!!"
They are also born with
excellent bone and hoof structure. "I like to see a lot of bone
and good round black hooves w/lots of heel in my horses. Their
injury or hoof disease risk drops to nearly nothing with these
excellent conformation traits."

PROGRAM: At 6 months of age
colts are halter broke, sacked out, taught to load
and back out of a trailer and stand to trim their feet. As yearlings
we periodically continue their ground training and handling,
We spend a lot of
time training these colts before they ever see a barrel. I
always tell people that you could take any of my barrel horses
and enter an English class or Western Reining Class and
place very well. A good training foundation is vital to a
great barrel horse. You can put any part of my barrel horse's
body anywhere you want at any speed...immediately. This is
how well they are trained! Our training program includes lots
of outside riding as well as arena work, all the while applying
low mental pressure techniques. I produce quiet, relaxed,
happy horses that love what they do and want to please! With
our training program, my horses just continue to get better
and better, rather than develop problems when you start applying
speed. Our buyers continued satisfaction and success is very
important to our program and to us.
