We currently reside in Jackson, Tennessee and, along with an extended family, on a family farm homesteaded by our ancestors. We grew up with plenty of cousins, aunts and uncles, AND animals. While my father worked in Memphis as an OBGYN during his career he would travel one day a week to the farm where he worked Beefmaster Cattle. He also partnered in a Tennessee Walking Horse operation that claimed a National Champion 4-year old, Senator on Parade.
We got our first Cairn at a very young age. While we bred and showed our Cairns on a limited basis, my interest in this hobby began here. The enjoyment for our family and passion to meet high standards in all we do has not been lost through the generations.
