30-year old Standard-bred gelding. He was a racehorse, then a buggy horses for two decades after his racing days were over. We saved Buckeye at auction from a meat-buyer last year. He was extremely underweight, but with care, vetting, and twice-a-day feeding (and love) he is now a beautiful, sweet, lovable, happy horse. He is too old to be ridden or driven any longer, but Buckeye would make a great companion horse or personal pet.
24-year-old Clydesdale-cross gelding. Buddy is a former plow horse who we rescued three years ago. He was horribly underweight when he came to us, but has put on over 700 pounds since then. We're still working on building up his top line and he needs once a week maintenance of thrush buster on his hooves. In the meantime, he gets along well with other horses, loves his daily grooming and attention, and has a sweet, gentle temperament. Buddy would be a great companion and friend to a new owner and/or another horse.
Chief is aprox. a 14 yr. old gelding, 17 hands, beautiful Paint, long legs, very nicely built, wonderful ground manners, loves attention and wants to do something. Past history: He was a spotter for fox hunts. Cannot jump him, however, or it will result in a shoulder issue. A real looker and nice personality and temperament. Wonderful ground manners. Can be ridden moderately.
Duncan is a very sweet, lovable aprox. 20 year old gelding. At the bottom of the pecking order. Gets along with everyone. He had a previous injury in his lifetime of his front knee and has arthritis as a result. But he makes a wonderful human and horse companion. He also is great for beginner lessons at a walk and minimal trotting. He wants to please everyone. He is an absolute sweetheart.
15-year-old Bay Grade gelding who we rescued at auction last year. He's trained to both ride and drive and was probably used as a buggy horse. At some time had a serious accident with a motor vehicle. The accident left him with minor scars on one back leg and deep scars on the other. He's been declared sound for riding by the vet and is a docile and well-trained trail horse – UNLESS he is startled by the sight or sound of a large vehicle, which causes him to panic and buck. For the right owner, Maverick has many good years as a trail horse left.
14-year-old Golden Palomino gelding. He was terribly abused and beaten before we rescued him last year, and is blind in the left eye due to past mistreatment. Due to his sad past, he is extremely shy and skittish because he doesn't know who he can trust. But once you earn his trust, he only wants to please you. He is a well-trained trail horse, and gets along well with other horses in the herd. Nugget would be an excellent trail horse for someone with the patience and love to earn his trust.
Oliver is aprox. 17 yr. old Appaloosa gelding who is very smart and likes to have things to do. He listens better with an experienced rider. He is in the middle of the pecking order in the herd. An easy keeper regarding food. He is looking for an owner he can focus on and devote his attention to. He is anxious to please. He can be ridden with no restrictions.
Shiloh is a 22 year old Chestnut Grade Gelding. We don't know much about Shiloh's earlier life, before he worked many years as a stable trail horse. His specialty is kids and he has carried many hundreds of them across the battlefield. Shiloh has a sweet temperament, with both people and other horses. He gets along well with other horses in the herd, and quietly does whatever his handler asks. His long years of work has led to chronic arthritis and he was retired two years ago. Shiloh would be a wonderful companion to either another horse or a loving owner.
