Jenny was born on April 13, 2003.
Although Jenny is a registered Paint Horse, she is 3/4 Thoroughbred. Jenny is an amazing mover. She
moves with grace, ease, and elegance. She will be a beautiful English
horse. Jenny stands well for grooming and bathing. She will stand for the
farrier, and she knows how to longe. Jenny is in
Richmond, TX, where she is with a trainer who is working on Jenny's undersaddle
training. Jenny does well at the walk, trot, and canter, and she is
starting work over fences now. Jenny is not a spooky type of horse, so she
can also be a good trail horse.

Green broke to ride!!
Lilly was one of the friendlier ponies when we first acquired them from the
neglect situation. Lilly is a good looking mare with great potential. Lilly is
currently with a trainer who is working on Lilly's undersaddle training. Lilly
is now green broke to ride!! Since she is green, she needs an experienced rider.
Lilly has lots of energy and good forward motion when she is being ridden. It
appears that Lilly will have plenty of stamina for trail riding or for whichever
riding discipline you choose to ride her in. She
is friendly if she knows you, but she is still shy around strangers.
L22 Wild Thing - Adopted!!
Wild Thing was one of the most difficult ponies we acquired from the neglect situation in Lewisville. Once he learned to trust people, he progressed wonderfully! He is no longer a "Wild Thing!"

Age: Sundance is a 2001 gelding Breed: Pony of the Americas cross Height: 14.0 hands
When Sundance was in a stall at the temporary facility in Pilot Point, he was really sweet and pretty easy to put a halter on. He picked up the basics of being halter broke almost immediately. He has a laid back personality, and he is a very willing pony. Sundance is a people pony, and he loves attention and scratches. He also ties and cross-ties and will allow himself to be groomed all over and his feet to be picked up. He accepts a saddle with no problem and can be longed with the saddle on, too. Sundance needs an experienced rider/trainer to continue his training. Sundance will be a great family pony.

Wes is in Sugar Land, TX with Jenny Graham, who is training him.
Wes is halter broke, and he can be longed in both directions with a saddle and
bridle. He is calm and cooperative when being handled on the ground. Wes can be fly sprayed and bathed, and he stands nicely for the farrier.
His undersaddle training has begun, and he is progressing very well. He is
being ridden at the walk, trot, and canter, and he has been started over fences. Wes looks
forward to being worked, and he always tries to please. He is blind in his
left eye, but he can still be a good riding horse. Wes just needs to learn
to be confident when something comes up unexpectedly on his blind side.
Wes is comfortable being ridden in the arena, but he has not been ridden on the
trails, yet. Please give Wes a chance - you'll be glad you did!

Murphy was acquired with 64 ponies from a neglect situation in Lewisville, Texas. Murphy is very unsure of people, and she will need an experienced adopter or trainer to work with her. Once Murphy learns to trust people, she should progress well in her training.

Emmett is halter broke, leads and ties well, can be bathed and fly-sprayed and stands for the farrier. Emmett longes well and has been long-lined. Emmett is very shy when he meets someone new, but he is fine when he gets to know you. Emmett loves attention, so if you're looking for a horse that you can lavish your attention on, then Emmett is the horse for you!
Emmett is with a trainer in Lucas, Texas, who is helping Emmett to get over his shyness. Wouldn't you like to take Emmett home with you?!?

We acquired Abby from the Grayson County Sheriff's Office. She was a court-ordered seizure; because her owners had moved away, leaving Abby behind with no one to feed or take care of her. A neighbor was giving her water, but when the water at the property was shut off, she didn't even have water to drink. At Abby's first veterinary exam after acquiring her, we discovered that she has no upper incisors and is lacking two molars. This means she is unable to graze normally by biting the grass with her teeth. However, she can use her lips to get food into her mouth and then chew it with her remaining molars. Because of her missing incisors, the vet said it was difficult to pinpoint her age, but he estimates that she is in her early twenties. Due to weeks of little to no care, it has taken a lot of extra attention and nutrition to bring Abby back to health. She is now well on her way to complete recovery. In spite of her teeth problems, Abby will not be a difficult horse to maintain. She is doing very well on a Equine Senior and coastal hay. Abby is very good-natured and easy to work with on the ground.
Abby is broke to ride, but it appears that she has not been ridden in a long time. She knows the basics, but needs a "refresher" course to get her back in shape. Even though it is estimated that Abby is in her early 20s, she does not act it. She has plenty of energy and likes to be busy. Abby will make a good kids' horse after some fine tuning.
