"There is a certain quality about winners that time cannot fade it is called excellence."
Sharrway Farm, owned and operated by Wayne and Sharron Hinkle, is located on 20 gently rolling acres in Oklahoma. With easy access to Interstate 35, it is located approximately 125 miles from Oklahoma City, OK and Dallas/Fort Worth, TX. An ideal location for Miniature Horses and American Shetland Ponies.
The love affair with Miniature horses began in 1984. Coming from an extensive background in Shetland Ponies; Morgans; Arabians and Saddlebreds the miniatures were a natural fit. Sharrway Farm has had the distinction of having every horse shown by us be in the AMHR National Top Ten rankings, with many achieving National Champion or Reserve and National Grand Champions. With top rankings in the All Star year end awards, and Top Ten...plus many Hall of Fame winners.
Fortune has smiled on us with our ponies placing in the top ranking since 1999. Our home bred ponies have achieved numerous Futurity wins and Reserve Futurity wins in both the Classic and Modern Futurities. Ponies we have sold have also been at the top of their classes, winning top honors in driving and halter.
Our early successes can be attributed to get sired by Lust's Classic Ebony...truly a Foundation stallion of merit.
Our 2005 show ring successes, to present day, have been sired by our senior stallion, Hidden Image FMF - 2002 Modern Pleasure Halter Pony of the Year and Halter Hall of Fame. He is proving to be the type of breeding stallion we had hoped, producing Congress Champions with his first and second foal crops. Hidden Image also has a Top Ten in Country Pleasure from 2003. He is a well-rounded stallion producing champion foals.
When a winner makes a mistake, he says "I was wrong;"
When a loser makes a mistake, he says, "It wasn't my fault"
A winner works harder than a loser and has more time;
A loser is always "too busy" to do what is necessary.
A winner goes through a problem;
A loser goes around it, and never gets past it.
A winner makes commitments;
A loser makes promises.
A winner says, "I'm good, but not as good as I ought to be;"
A loser says, "I'm not as bad as a lot of other people."
A winner listens
A loser just waits until it's his turn to talk.
A winner respects those who are superior to him and tries to learn
something from them;
A loser resents those who are superior to him and tries to find
chinks in their armor. winner says, "There ought to be a better way
to do it."
