Prognosis- Sunshine is just a fantastic horse.  She does a little of everything, dressage, jumping, but really what she loves going for a ride and spending time with people.   For adults, she is easy to ride, and responds well to aids.  She does not have a lot of go, but will if asked. She is best suited for someone w light hands and a balanced, independent seat.   She’s middle of the herd, doesn’t have any idea of being the lead horse, but does hold her own w a pesky  horse.  Bit or Bitless- equally good!  Good about picking up feet, good for the farrier, super easy to handle, trailers well, loves to be hosed off, but when the water hits her belly she moves around alot= she’s super ticklish when its dripping off of her belly.  She still wears front shoes, we have removed rear shoes w no issues.

Super sweet horse, he only rated a 3 on the temperament scale because he has not been here so long, but he has been here and off the property already, super confident, not herd bound, was great on and off the trailer, carried a young rider around and has shown zero sign of being spooked, having an attitude about anything or bothered by things.  Stood ground tied to be tacked, ok w fly spray, fly mask, not a picky eater, really a joy to be around.  More updates as he is here longer

Phoenix is a 7 year old unraced and unridden chestnut gelding with lots of chrome. He came from a breeding barn, his owner died suddenly and they had us pick him up.  At his former home he was worked with , .lunging w saddle and learning how to move and collect but had never actually been ridden.  He is a sweetheart of a horse, we put a bareback pad on and had someone sit on him and just walked him around and he didn’t blink an eye. No big deal.  He is very, very large, approx 1600 pounds of muscle, for his 16.2hh body.  Most common comment is that he doesn’t look like a thoroughbred, more like a quarter horse.  He has beautiful movement, free shoulders and is injury free. he doses have a flipped palate, which is something you want to consult w your vet about before considering him.



Sunny- ADOPTED

Sunny is a 25 year old 14 hand pony, breed unknown.  Very cute, and lots of spunk, good for an experienced child.  Sunny was abandoned out in our area, we got his coggins done, feet trimmed, and started him on a great feeding program. He is flourishing and being ridden by one of our 16 year old volunteers.

    Hi there, who is the sire/dam on the Astounding Spirit gelding? He’s really a sweet looking guy.

  2. Jeanie Childers says:

    I am interested in Applesauce. Where are you located?

    • He was actually adopted out in early Nov, sorry the web site is not current on the adoptable horses. We currently have a variety of OTTB’s from companion to light riding available, and one horse that is sound, but just started under saddle. We also have one pony, that is 25 years old, that is in foster looking for a home. We are having an open house on Valentines Day if you are interested in meeting the horses. There is an application on this page, you can fill that out and we will keep it on file and let you know when a horse that meets your criteria becomes available
