   Jenny was born on April 13, 2003.  Although Jenny is a registered Paint Horse, her breeding is 3/4 Thoroughbred.  Jenny stands well for grooming and bathing, and she knows how to longe.  Jenny does well at the walk, trot, and canter. Jenny had an episode of laminitis in October of 2016, but she is fully recovered from it. We have refreshed Jenny's ground training, and now we are refreshing Jenny's undersaddle training. She tries hard to please her rider.   Jenny is not a spooky type of horse, so we anticipate she can be a good trail horse. Jenny is located in Sugar Land, TX.


Ella - Adopted!!

Ella is a 17 year old registered Arabian mare.  She is easy to catch and stands well for the farrier.  Ella has a sweet personality and gets along well with horses and people.  She likes to eat carrots, apples, and even watermelon!  Ella has a history of cutaneous habronemiasis, which can flare up in hot weather.  Diligent fly control and regular deworming can keep this situation under control.  Ella is broke to ride but hasn't been ridden in five years.  Information about her riding ability will be added after she is evaluated.  If you're looking for a horse that will bond to you and especially to your other horses, Ella is the one for you!           

                                                                                                  

L13 Lilly

Lilly was acquired with 64 ponies from a neglect situation in Lewisville, TX.  Lilly is friendly if she knows you, but she is very shy around strangers. Lilly was green broke to ride, and she had lots of energy and good forward motion when being ridden.  However, Lilly has not been ridden in a long time, so she will need an experienced rider or trainer to refresh and then continue her training. Lilly would benefit very much with a patient adopter who would give her the time she needs to learn to trust people. Once trained, Lilly could be a great working pony for the right adopter.  Lilly is a good looking mare with great potential.  

 
L19 Drake - Adopted!

Drake is not broke to ride, but he has had extensive ground training.  He could be trained for driving or riding or both.  Drake loves to be brushed, but he doesn't like his ears to be touched.  He is good with the farrier, and he does fine with kids and dogs.  Drake was with the foster mom's donkeys when he first arrived, and they loved him.  Drake is handled daily, so his past training will just need to be refreshed.  Drake is smart and cute and could make a great working pony once trained.   

L22 Wild Thing

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!"

Broke to Ride!!

Wild Thing is halter broke, and broke to ride. He is being ridden at a walk, trot, and canter.  He can be longed in both directions with a saddle and bridle.  Wild Thing can be groomed, fly sprayed and bathed, and he stands nicely for the farrier.   Wild Thing loves attention, and he does best when handled and ridden regularly. Wild Thing is not a pony for beginner riders.

     Murphy was acquired with 64 ponies from a neglect situation in Lewisville, TX.  Murphy is smart and enjoys attention, but she is very unsure of people.  She needs an experienced and patient adopter or trainer to work with her and give her the time she needs to learn to trust peole.  Murphy is halter broke, but she is not broke to ride.  Once Murphy learns to trust, she should progress well in her training.
