Shadow may be getting to be an old man, but you can't tell him that.
He is now 32 years old.
He led our herd since he came to us in 2002.
He led our Trail Rides since we began in 2005.
He loves to swim, as well. Swimming is his specialty!
So many people have come to know and love this old man.
He will always be a part of our family!
Due to his age he is in semi-retired, but he tends o disagree. Occasionally he will go on a ride to keep his moral up.
Bones is Shadow's second in command.
He is a horse with a real sense of humor.
He will play practical jokes on dogs and people alike.
So use care because if he catches you unaware in the barn,
he may just coat your head with water.
He is the star of the barn, and always the first to greet new people.
He loves food more then most, and will even take a beer given the opportunity.
At one time in his life before us,
someone took the time to teach him to love to hunt wild hogs.
He has a presence that demands your attention.
When I look at this horse,
it is so hard to imagine that he was ever
the poor starving stallion that we took in.
He is a born leader,
but has given Shadow the respect due to his position.
The two of them are nearly inseparable, even on the trail.
He knows his job, and does it well.
For those that just want to ride and hand over control Bones is happy to oblige.
When I took this 6 month old,
untouched Arabian foal in,
I never knew the place she would hold in my heart.
Even more amazing is the love she returns to me!
Those of you that know me, must in turn know my mare!
She came to me in 2001,
untouched by human hands,
untrusting and afraid.
I have never had to work so hard for anything,
like I did to gain her trust.
I knew even less then she did.
This is one of those rare cases that
green plus green did not equal black and blue.
Instead it has blossomed into a rare and special relationship
that cannot be measured in words.
She is mine, and I am hers!
Savannah is such a sweet girl. She and my daughter have claimed each other. She really LOVES cookies! If you have a cookie and ask her before you give it to her, she will give you a very enthusiastic YES! She no longer works, but she will spend the rest of her days with us.
Kit is amazing. She is one of our best trail horses. All the kids love her, adults do too. She was trained for dressage before she was given to us. Kit really shines when she has a rider with some experience. That doesn't change the fact that she is great with beginners as well. She is even a great swimmer.
Rocky is extremely social, and will do nearly anything to get your attention, especially if you have a cookie. A great beginner horse on the trails and fairly smooth as well. You are very likely to meet him if you go out for a trail ride. He is the goofball of the herd don't be surprised if he nudges your shoulder with his nose he just wants all your attention.
She is a Shetland/Paint cross. She injured herself last year and may not be ridable again but she has been here for most of her life and will always have a home here.
Lexi is pretty and flashy and good on the trail as well.
Lilly is a cute little halflinger who has earned the nickname froggy because she makes a sound like a little treefrog. She is also a great little trail horse.
