About Us


 

Nestled in the rolling green hills 20 miles south of the Ohio River sits Cross Creek Farm in Flemingsburg, Kentucky.  There, owners Tim and Dana Crager have raised and shown Paints and Quarter Horses for more than 30 years.  Their main focus now is mainly on breeding Paint Horses.  Cross Creek Farm is a full service family operation that offers everything from breeding to training services.  It also stands its own stallion and has 20 broodmares.

Tim and Dana co-own the stallion The Ultimate Fancy with Lary and Cyndy Cowart of Winchester, Kentucky.  The Ultimate Fancy, affectionatey known as "Tuf" around the farm and by friends,  is a double registered sorrel overo sired by Mr Fancy Bonanza and out of Sweet Celebration, who is one of APHA’s leading dams.  Tuf has sired World and Reserve world champions in APHA and PtHA.

Ultimately Tuf is Cross Creek's Jr stallion. He is co-owned by Cross Creek and Mike and Sheryl Ranly. "Sonny" has earned his open Western Pleasure superior and an ROM in amatuer western pleasure. He is out of an own daughter of Red Sonny Dee. Sonny already has to his credit Tom Powers top tens, Reichert Celebration top tens and Reserve World Champions. Tim and Dana look forward to seeing what potential the show ring holds for Sonny's offsrping.

Both Tim and Dana work on the farm full time, along with their daughter Brittni. Tim and Dana are certified in AI and run the full time breeding operation. All three of them work around the clock during breeding season foaling out mares and breeding. "Even after 30 years of this it never gets old, when that first baby of the season comes you remember why you do this" ~Dana.

Tim also runs the training operation that involves everything from halter breaking the weanlings to finishing show horses. Many will testify "Tim has great patience and hands for starting the young stock. There is no one else I would ever bring my babies to, to break out." Tim has passed along his talents to his children Brittni and Kyle who help break out the offspring.

Kyle now lives in Lexington where he runs a part-time training operation. He focuses mainly on western all around and training Tuf and Sonny offspring and getting them to the show pen. This year they will be hauling to both APHA and AQHA shows around Ky, In, Oh and Ill. If you see them be sure to stop by and say hello!

The Cragers are members of both the Kentucky Paint Horse Club and the Kentucky Paint Horse Breeders Association.  “The Paint Horse industry has been wonderful to our family,” Dana says.  “To us, it’s full of the best people and the best horses in the business.”
