The following horses are part of a group that came into our care in February 2015 from a property in Boone County. The horses were pulled from the property due to lack of proper nutrition and veterinary care. They were underweight and in generally poor condition. They range in age from 8 months and older, but are a nice young group and are responding well in our care. They have been dewormed, vaccinated and are otherwise healthy and gaining weight. We are working with them on the basics: approaching, haltering, leading, picking up feet and learning to trust.
Dun gelding, 2014 Model, 14.1HH
Maizy is a spunky little lady. She’s 10 months old. She knows groundwork skills, and does well loading into a trailer, playing in the indoor area with toys and standing on a pedestal. She is standing excellent for farrier to trim.
My name is Norman and I am a 2014 Model (14.2HH) – a quarter horse-type sorrel gelding. I only have a handful of rides under my belt but I’m getting the hang of it and will learn to be a steady, bold mount. I still need someone to help me with all of this stuff, but I love learning and I try hard. I hear folks saying that I will make a good trail horse or ranch horse. I am way cool. I am updated on my farrier work, vaccinations and deworming.
