Maizy is an 18 month old filly, currently 12.2 hh Quarter Pony type breed, that was left abandoned on a property a year ago. Maizy was found neglected with an injured eye and frostbitten ear and emaciated from lack of nutrition. She has since made a lovely recovery. Maizy’s foster care home sponsored her eye surgery to remove the eye which was beyond repair and had no vision.
Maizy is a very sweet gal and even though she lacks vision on her left side, through the TLC of our volunteers working with her she has gained confidence and is getting better about understanding how to compensate on that side. Maizy is easy to catch, halter, stands tied, is good with th farrier, loads in an open stock or straight load 2 horse trailer, and has nice manners. If you are looking for a nice companion horse or smaller type horse Maizy may be your gal!
Meet Buck- aka Lucky Bucky, the guy is a very kind 23-year-old Buckskin gelding, Mustang. He is about 14.1 hands high. Buck is very gentle, stands tied, stands for farrier, loves being groomed, loads in a 2 horse or stock trailer.
Although we do not know much of Buck’s past life, it would appear he has good handling at some point in his life. So far he has been ridden in a snaffle bit several times in the indoor arena at a walk and trot, around cones and over obstacles with no problems, he has also been ridden down the road a couple times with another horse and rider without incident.
Buck would be a nice horse for a child or small adult under 170 lbs that knows how to ride and respects that even though he’s got some pep to offer, he is an older gentleman that may just enjoy some relaxing trail rides.
Meet the “Belle of the Barn” Mare-A-Belle! Mare-a-belle is a 22-year-old mare who is 14.3 hands high. We were told she is a mustang cross from her prior owner. This lovely lady came from a situation in which the owner could no longer provide adequate nutrition or care for her. After having her a few months and with proper feed, we have found that Mare-a-belle is a very easy keeper as she holds her weight quite well on quality grass and hay alone. She stands tied but may paw the ground a little out of boredom. She stands nicely for the farrier, loads in an open stock or 2 horse straight load trailer, and loves grooming time.
We are adopting her as a barn buddy right now as we are unaware of any riding history with her. If you are looking for a nice mare as a companion horse check out Mare-a-belle!
