Marcia-Owner

Hi, my name is Marcia DeCamp, I am the owner/operator of Crazy 8 Ranch. I grew up on the back of a horse on a farm in Michigan. My grandaddy was a jockey and we always had horses when I was growing up. I trained and competed in barrel racing for 5 years. As I got older, friends and neighbors aquired rescues horses that needed rehabilitation and training. I felt very drawn to helping these magnificent creatures regain their trust in humans and help them on their road to recovery. It was very gratifying to watch them heal. In 2007, after not being able to find a farrier to take care of my horses, I decided to attend the Oklahoma Horseshoeing School in Purcell, Oklahoma. It was an extremely tough school and very rewarding. I also took Equine management through the Global Equine Academy. Classes covered all facets of equine care, health, breeding, facility design and construction and more. There is still a lot to learn from other trainers, my vet, and of course the horses. I am the mother of four wonderful children, who are all grown, and the grandmother of four grand-babies.

Alumni

 

Whiskey

 

Whiskey's pregnant momma was rescued from a kill pen. The new owners didn't know she was pregnant at the time. When Whiskey showed up, they raised him as a baby but as he grew he became quite a handful. They weren't prepared to handle a stud colt so we were asked if we would take him in when he was about 2. He is now in training to become a trail horse. He has a very curious and fun personality. After learning to be a great trail horse, we are happy to report that he has been adopted by a wonderful family. Trinity and her mother Amy, have been coming to Crazy 8 Ranch for a couple of years now. They both volunteer and Trinity takes lessons. She fell in love with Whiskey and their family recently adopted him. He still resides at the ranch for now.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Silver Dollar aka Silver is a grey appaloosa cross, born in 1999 and came to us in 2011. He's a sweet gentle soul with extremely sensitive skin. He could not wear a girth without getting sores. With the help of our vet we were able to successfully treat these sores and prevent any further problems. After spending many years as a happy trail and lesson horse, he is now living a happy retirement with Caroline and Kingsley as a spoiled pet. Best Christmas present ever! Christmas Eve 2020
