THOROUGHBRED-GELDING-10 YRS. OLD-16 HH
This is a special horse, with tons of potential. He is a stunning 16+hh 10 yro. TB with loads of personality. He is working with our trainer Tess who says at this point in his training he will need an experienced rider to bring him along slowly and patiently and he will be one amazing horse!
Shadow is a 22 year old Standardbred gelding who will make a great partner for an intermediate rider. He has cushings that is managed with medication and should be turned out on a dry lot. He is calm and gentle on the trails and is ready to find his new partner to mosey along with!
THOROUGHBRED-MARE-19 YRS. OLD
This lovely mare had been through a lot before we rescued her from a killpen. Unbeknownst to us, she had a birthing that had gone awry and left her with some severe damage. Once in our care, she had a successful surgery! She and Misha were adopted in a home together but were recently were returned due to a divorce. Melody has participated in a Christmas parade in our town and actually seemed to really enjoy it! Her Tattoo needs to be revisited, it is not very clear but the first reading tells us she is now 19 years old. A home with an intermediate rider is preferable as she has not been ridden in her previous home and will need a refresher.
MINI-GELDING-8 YRS. OLD
Our mini Tux was an Amish pulling pony and our expert driving trainer, Herb Trombly, was so impressed with him! He knows all his commands and appears to love the work. He has been out of work for a while, but with a good trainer, he will be better than ever in no time! He is calm and gentle---stands calmly to be harnessed and is great for grooming and clipping. He is calm and gentle with kids too!
THOROUGHBRED-MARE-10 YRS. OLD-15.2HH
This sweet girl arrived last fall after being bailed from a Louisiana kill pen with a group of Thoroughbreds (she did not come with JC paper or a tattoo). She was recently diagnosed with kissing spine so is looking for a home as a companion. She is great with others, is in the middle of the pecking order and has been turned out in both large and small groups and has never had any issues. She is super sweet and very easy to handle. She is an easy keeker--no medication and is barefoot. She is great for the vet and trimmer and will soak up all of the love and TLC you can give her.
STANDARDBRED-GELDING-18 YRS. OLD-15HH This handsome Standardbred would love a home where he could be a devoted companion! He will get along with any horse and is very fond of men in particular! After his cart racing career, he became an Amish buggy horse and ended up in auction when he could not keep up with the demands of a cart horse. He is pasture sound, healthy, and is an easy keeper. He is very handsome and is deserving of a great home.
THOROUGHBRED-MARE-6 YRS. OLD-15.2HH
This beautiful dark bay OTTB was rescued from a LA Killpen a year ago. She has been in training in foster care since November in Warwick, NY. This magnificent mare is now shiny, filled out in weight, happy in turnout with her horse friends and perfect for the vet, trimmer and all routine grooming and handling. She loves learning tricks and going over obstacles-in hand. She would make a great partner for someone interested in horse agility. She was recently diagnosed with kissing spines so needs a home as a companion only. She loves the company of others in a herd and is pasture sound. She gets along well with both mares and geldings and has had a calming effect on some of the farms other nervous OTTB’s. She is barefoot and up to date on her dental, worming and immunizations.
THOROUGHBRED-MARE-12 YRS. OLD-15.3HH
Geneva is a lovely TB mare who is looking for a home as a companion due to arthritis in her back. She is sweet and loving, gets along well with others and is good for the trimmer and vet. She is an easy keeper and would make a great buddy for both you and your horse.
THOROUGHBRED-MARE-5 YRS. OLD-15.1HH
This sweet young mare was used as a broodmare after suffering an injury on the track. Her last baby was weaned and adopted last winter and we’ve currently rehabbing a bowed tendon in her front right leg. Once healed she will be available for adoption.
