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!
MEET ROCKET MAN !
Rocket is 19 y/o gelding, 15 hh, quarter horse.
This gentleman came from a situation in which the owner could no longer provide adequate care for him. Rocket is easy to catch, stands nicely for the farrier, loads in an open stock or 2 horse straight load trailer, and loves grooming time as well as playtime on various obstacles. We are adopting him out as a Paddock Pal as Rocket is not broke to ride. Rocket is current on vaccinations, farrier care and deworming. If you are looking for a nice gelding as a companion horse check out Rocket Man!
Why adopt a senior horse?
Does your existing horse or livestock need a paddock buddy? Senior horses can be a great way to provide needed socialization for your horse or calm a buddy sour horse left alone. Just because a horse can't be ridden does not mean they do not enjoy human company or learning something new, and it can also be a great way to learn about the basics of horsemanship and general horse husbandry - but most important of all, by adopting you are helping 2 horses, the one you adopt and the next one in need that takes its place!
