Meet the Horses
Each horse at the Ranch has a unique personality and is helping with different jobs. Taking care of this many horses requires a lot of financial support, time and woman/man power. Through our “Adopt-A-Horse” program anyone can help us purchase food and supplies for their favorite horse. Please ask about how you can help.
If you’ve seen Black Beauty, you know exactly what our Mary Legs looks like! She is a twelve year old grey dappled Haflinger cross. She is definitely the boss around the Ranch! She tells all the other horses what to do. She loves treats & attention, no matter who you are. She likes playing “catch me if you can” in the pasture. Mary Legs loves kids & going fast, so she is a joy to ride – although a little bumpy.
Indy (short for Independent) is a seven year old black & white Gypsy Vanner cross. She loves to roll around in the dirt & get messy! She has a ‘babysitter’ attitude, so if you’re new to riding, she will make sure you feel safe. But she can also push your buttons if she knows you need someone to push you to do your best! Overall, Indy is a big horse with an even bigger heart – just how we like our horses at the Ranch.
Dandee is a sorrel & white paint mare with striking blue eyes. She is middle aged (around 14) but feels like an old lady. She has arthritis in her front pasturns (our ankles) so she doesn’t move very fast. Dandee never turns down getting attention or brushed. She is very sweet & will follow you around the pasture or arena. Even when injured & sore, she shows how big her heart is.
Sam is a 25 year old sorrel paint gelding, making him the oldest horse at the Ranch. He is a major cuddle bug & loves hugs! You can do just about anything with him except he isn’t a big fan of going fast. He also has a ‘babysitter’ attitude, so if you’re new to horses he’s a great first horse friend. Since he is older, he gets senior feed to help keep his muscles strong.
Ducky is the newest horse to the Ranch. He is an eight year old bay pony. We aren’t sure what breed he is – but we know he’s darn cute! Ducky is a little nervous about new people, but after you introduce yourself & give him some attention, he is more than willing to be your friend. (can add more when he starts to show his personality more)
