Horse Adoption

The following horses are available for adoption:

Renegade   

Renegade is an approximately 12-13-year-old Quarter Horse-type grade mare who is now looking for that special place to call home! She stands 15 hh and is a solid bay. She has lovely ground manners and is very social with humans. She lunges, crossties and trailers well. She gets along well in a mixed herd and is an easy keeper.

Renegade is a now working nicely under saddle and is a very willing and sensible partner. She stands well for mounting and will do a good whoa, walk, jog and backup. She is also doing well navigating some trail obstacles and hacks out well. Renegade is still quite green at the lope/canter and needs more work on her transitions and pace .Renegade is currently being schooled Western but could certainly transition to English.

Renegade is up to date on vaccinations, worming and dental. To the best of our knowledge she is sound and healthy. Renegade has received some chiropractic care to treat TMJ and now has normal movement in her jaw. Her vet feels this condition has been successfully resolved but she may require occasional adjustment. She is currently on good quality hay and pasture, supplemented with Recovery EQ once daily.

Renegade is a super mare who should make an excellent pleasure/trail partner for an intermediate or above rider. She is not currently suitable for a beginner rider but could be with more miles.

Beau

Beau is a five-year-old bay Thoroughbred gelding and stands around 16.1 hands. He is up-to-date on vaccines, dental and worming.

This handsome lad has a lot to offer to the right home. He is very social and loves his people; he also gets along well in a mixed herd and tends to be at the bottom of the pecking order.

Beau tries hard, although he is young and inexperienced. He is not overly spooky or difficult to work with and he is curious about new things. He may have been track trained at some point, but since we do not know his completer history we are starting from scratch with his training.

We have just started him on the lunge and he is enjoying learning the basics. At this time we are focusing on building his confidence and improving his fitness level.  He would benefit from an experienced owner/handler as he is a big, energetic boy who is prone to some” baby moments.”

Beau is sound and healthy and ready to head down a new path. He has a lot of potential and, with his willing attitude and engaging personality,  should be a great fit for any discipline.

Maxi - Adopted!!

Maxi is an eight to 10-year- old bay Quarter Horse-type grade mare. Maxi stands about 14.3-15 hands.

Maxi came into our care through our investigations department. After much TLC and proper nutrition she is now ready to find that special place to call home.

Maxi is a little on the shy side and is lacking confidence at the moment. That said, we are happy with her progress and she seems to enjoy her schooling sessions. We do not know if Maxi was ever schooled under saddle so are starting from scratch and taking things slowly with her. She is now lunging and learning her cues and has been tacked her up. Maxi cross ties, trailers well and gets along well in a herd.

Maxi has had a complete veterinary assessment and is sound, healthy and ready for a new career! She is  also up to date on dental care, vaccinations and worming.

Maxi would be suited for any discipline, but is very green at this time and needs an experienced, calm, confident handler. We would like to see Maxi in a home that will focus on her continuing education and help her develop into a well-rounded horse.


 

Wolverine

Wolverine is a 17-year-old Thoroughbred gelding. He would make a great companion horse or trail riding horse. A laidback guy, Wolverine prefers to walk and trot. He is currently shod to correct previous farrier issues.
