Babe: This mare is a registered 1996, APHA mare. Her registered
name is "Skippers BlueHoney", #338,641. Babe is a very quiet, sweet-tempered mare that has basically been used as a
trail horse. She rides in a hackamore. She had professional training as a 2 yr. old, so is very well versed on
a lungeline. She is a very easy keeper and at the bottom of the "pecking order" in the pasture. She will most
likely work for beginners with some riding knowledge. She is very "out of shape", but also seems a bit uncomfortable
at times, when ridden, so we are having her evaluated by our farrier and a horse massage therapist. We have just
started riding her and will update her info as we know more.
SOLD:Cookie: 20+ year old grade dun mare. This is a very kind, older mare. When she
was younger, she even rode out in Medora. She went to Camp Shamineau this year for her previous owner's grandchild,
as the horse that was meant to be used, got hurt. She will be good for light riding, preferably by a child or smaller
adult, she does have a bit of a low back. We were told she only direct reins and will be trying her out very soon.
She is also excellent with other horses, could get along with any, providing they weren't out to beat her up. She would
be safest in a mellow group of horses. She has a very sweet disposition.
Bob: 11 year old spotted donkey jack. What a character! Bob came in from some friends
of ours that are selling their farm and needing to place their large animals. We also got in his "wife" Pickles
and will be posting pics and an ad on her later this week. They were bred a number of times and always had a little
white mule or a spotted one. The mare is also spotted. Bob isn't a real noisy guy, just the occasional "honk"
when we're out feeding or when a new horse arrives, that is housed near him. We need to tape him for his correct
height, but he's got to be 13+ hands tall, just under the mammoth donkey height requirement. He does pull on his lead
rope so you need to keep him close. We could rehome him with "his wife" if anyone were interested. She will be
going online this week. She has really only been a broodmare. Bob's price is $350.
Ozzy: This is a registered ApHC mare. She was
brought to us by her former owners, so that we could help to find her a new home. We have a copy of her papers, but
not the original and since it's not been found, as of yet, we will be selling her as grade. Her name is "Total Awesome
Class". Her sire is: Crystal Approval and her dam is: BR Glitter and Class. She was foaled on 04/12/2004.
We were told she contracted Lymes Disease at her previous home and was treated for it by a veterinarian. However, she
still has "off" days so we feel she should be considered as a companion horse and if she were to stay sound on joint medication,
her new owner could very well have a spare riding horse, as she is broke to ride. I will be having our vet check her
out on his next visit, but we haven't ridden her here and really don't plan to, at this time. This mare gets along well
in our herd and is a very easy keeper. She loves treats, but is not overly personable.
SOLD Lacey: 20 year old grulla Quarter Horse mare. This mare is
the perfect package, she has the looks, disposition and the training! We've seen her ride well for at least 5 riders
with different riding abilities as well as different levels of confidence. Lacey is an easy going, well broke mare. She
is approx. 15 hands tall and nicely built. She is a sweet, friendly mare. Easy to catch, stands tied, stands for
tacking up and fly spray, gets along well with other horses. Lacey is a great trail horse. She is traffic safe and not spooky.
Neck reins, backs nicely and is light mouthed. Will lead or follow along when ridden with another horse. Smooth gaits. Will
also ride bareback with just a halter and lead. Lacey would be suitable for any number of riders, from a less experienced
rider on up. She is sound and healthy, has a good disposition and is an all-around nice mare. Lacey is registered AQHA
but her papers were lost, if her previous owner finds them we will update this ad with her pedigree. $1350
SOLD RF Happy Gilmore: 1999 registered Pinto gelding. "Happy"
is a beautiful, part-Arab large pony (I think around 13 hands or so, we need to measure him). We were contacted by Happy's
former owner for help in finding him a good home. He is broke to ride and we were told should have a rider with experience.
Happy has been foundered and needs to be kept off pasture/in a dry lot. More info coming soon.
SOLD Banjo: 4 year old jenny Mule. Approx. 15 hands and stout.
Her dam was a Tennessee Walker mare. Banjo is a nice looking jenny that is halterbroke and is ready to start training. She
has been well taken care of and had only one owner from birth until now, her owner contacted us for help in finding
her a good home. Banjo has only been trailered once, when we picked her up and she's pretty hesitant about loading.
She has a good disposition and will make a nice riding mule. Banjo should have an owner with "mule experience". She
is sound and healthy. More information and photos coming soon. $500
SOLD Rusty: 20 year old red roan john (gelding) Mule. Rusty
is approx. 15 hands tall. He is well broke to ride and has been ridden in the mountains of CO, WY and MT. Rusty has a good disposition and likes attention. He is easy to catch, trim and shoe.
Rusty was with the same owner for many years and was very well taken care of. His owner contacted
us for help in finding Rusty a good home. We were told Rusty is a good trail Mule and has also been used to
pack. Rusty direct reins and is very smooth under saddle. We also have the Australian saddle his owner used on him (see photo)
as well as his old pack harness. The saddle is in excellent shape.
SOLD:Ocelia Marie: 1995 registered Thoroughbred mare.
"Moriah" is approx 15.1/15.2 hands tall. She belonged to the same home for years and was very well taken care
of. Sadly, her owner's job requires she move out of the country and she contacted us for help in finding Moriah a safe,
long-term home. Moriah is a well trained mare, she has been trail ridden and overnight camping and also had dressage and jumping
training in the past. At one time, she was even trained to drive, but didn't do it long term. Moriah is blind in
one eye but well adjusted to it, she is sound and healthy otherwise. She has not been ridden much in the last year or so.
We will be updating her ad as soon as we've had time to ride her here a few more times. Moriah's pedigree can be seen at:
Update 6/24/14: We've ridden Moriah out a couple times now and
she's been well behaved. Her only silly habit is neighing a bit when you first start out to see if she can get one of
the pasture horses to answer her. Each time she went out, it was with another horse we've been riding so we don't know
how happy she'd be, going out alone. However, her previous owner was down to just one horse, her, when I picked her
up so I'm assuming she rode her out alone from her farm. She is a nice mare, friendly and responsive and works very
well off leg cues, going down the road, we had her leg yields as in dressage. She has her moments when being
tacked up as she'll jig around a bit. I should've cross-tied her, which would've helped. She gets along well with
other horses and you'd never know she was blind in one eye, if you didn't see it.
We feel that she'd do best with a confident intermediate rider or an advanced one.
The right type of person will really enjoy this mare and get a lot out of her as she's been trained in a number of disciplines.
She just needs to get ridden more, she really seems to enjoy it. $500
SOLD Goldie: 14 year old grade mare. Goldie
is approx. 15.1/15.2 hands tall. She is friendly and easy to catch. Stands tied, trailers, stands for the farrier. The only
vice we've found is that she will crib if she is bored. She's not a frequent cribber, but if she's stalled with nothing
to do she will crib a little. Goldie stands for tacking up and also rides bareback. She is well broke to ride. She is
responsive under saddle, neck reins well and stops easily. Goldie is fun to ride, traffic safe and not spooky. I think
she would be too responsive and a little "too much horse" for a beginner but could be a good match for a confident,
intermediate rider. $850
Cupcake is SOLD, Moonshine is SOLD Cupcake and Moonshine: 9 year old pony mare and her 2013 stud colt. Cupcake is an extremely sweet
little mare. Easy to catch, loves attention. I had a hard time getting any photos of her as she was determined to follow me
all around the pen. We were contacted by Cupcake's former owner for help finding her a home. He told us she is well broke
to ride and was ridden by his young children. Cupcake is blind in one eye but is well adjusted to it. She has a wonderful
disposition, friendly and easy going.
Moonshine is her 2013 foal, he is 5 months old. He is not yet halterbroke but we will be working
with him as we have time. We are advertising them as a pair at this time, but plan to wean Moonshine within
the month. $275 for the pair.
Update: Moonshine has been hiding the fact that he is pretty well halter-broke. :-) He
was excellent for his first trim! His name has also been changed to Moonshadow, in honor of my brother
SOLD Skip: 19 year old grade Arabian/Appaloosa cross
gelding. Approx. 15 hands tall. Skip is friendly and easy to catch. He is a flashy older gelding and is well broke to ride.
He is a former 4-H show horse. In recent years Skip has mostly been trail ridden. He also has done open gaming classes.
Skip's former owner contacted us for help in finding him a good home. She would like to touch base with his new home from
time to time. Skip stands tied and stands for tacking up. Skip has a ground covering walk and is a great trail horse. He is
traffic safe, not spooky and is used to 4-wheelers. Will blaze trail, go through puddles, etc. Skip is very light mouthed
and rides well in a hackamore. Neck reins, very responsive under saddle. We feel he could be suited to a confident beginner
with basic riding skills and light hands. Skip is sound and healthy and has a current coggins test. We plan to take him to
a fun game show within the next few weeks if he is still here. Skip does require daily grain to maintain his weight. $750
SOLD IH Tangarai: 2002 registered APHA mare. Tangarai is
approx. 14.2 hands tall. She is broke to ride but has not been ridden in the last 2 years.
Tangarai rides like a well started, but not finished mare. She has good ground manners and is gentle and
easy to handle. She leads, stands tied and trailers. Under saddle she direct reins and stops well. She needs a rider with
experience to finish her training. Priced at $275.
SOLD Herman and Horatio: 3 year old purebred, unregistered
Clydesdale geldings. Herman and Horatio are half-brothers, only one month apart in age. The first two photos
are Horatio, the 2nd two photos are of Herman, (he is the one with the most white). Horatio is approx. 17 hands tall. Herman
is approx. 17.2 hands tall. With training, they would make a very nice team. Their previous owner
contacted us for help in finding them a good home.
Both geldings are very friendly. They love to be groomed, stand for fly spray and have been bathed. Good
for the farrier. They have been exposed to tracters, lawn mowers, golf carts, etc. Both have excellent dispositions and are
gentle with kids, cats, dogs, etc. They get along well with other horses. Herman and Horatio are sound and healthy and ready
to start training. These geldings are very gentle but are young and are VERY big and need a home experienced with draft horses.
Current coggins tests. If possible, we would like to find them a new home as a team as they have been together since they
were foals. $1500/for both Herman and Horatio.
SOLD Zip: 15 year old grade black mare. Approx. 14.3 hands
tall. Zip is back with us due to the fact that her current owner feels she doesn't have the experience required for this mare.
We took her to the local outside arena shortly after her return, she rode the same for us as she did last fall. She did
well and was very relaxed.
Zip has good ground manners and gets along well with other horses. Stands tied, trailers, stands for
saddling. Zip is a well broke mare and would be best suited to a calm, light handed rider. She needs a rider with confidence
and experience as she initally is a bit anxious/tense before you start out on a ride and she knows what to expect, (a little
"wound up" but settles down when you head out to ride). Last fall we took this mare on a 2 hour trail ride at Pillsbury forest
and she did wonderful. She neck reins and is very responsive under saddle. Zip is sound and healthy. $675
SOLD Piscado: 20+ year old grade Appaloosa gelding. Piscado
is approx. 14.2 hands tall. He is a former riding stable horse and is well broke to ride. You may recognize him, we used to
own him and sold him in 2011. He has been a trail horse for a younger rider the past year and a half, she's now ready for
a "step up" horse and sadly had to part with Piscado. We were contacted to help find him a good, longterm home. His owner
also took him to a groundwork class this year and he did very well.
Piscado has good ground manners and is easy to catch. Stands tied, stands for tacking up and mounting.
He will ride out alone but is happiest when ridden with another horse. Piscado will lead or follow, neck reins, stops easily
and backs. Back in 2011 I took him overnight camping at Pillsbury and he did great. Piscado is not spooky and has great feet.
Traffic safe. He is current on shots for 2013. He is a solid trail horse and would be best suited to a confident beginner/intermediate
rider. As he is an older gelding he does need to be grained throughout the winter months to maintain his weight.
When Piscado came back to us this year his former owners let us know he had a cataract in one eye. Their
vet had examined him and felt it was due to an old injury. After spending time with him this fall I'm thinking his sight in
that eye is pretty limited. He's still not a spooky horse but you have to be aware that he doesn't have much vision on
one side. I took him for a 1 1/2 hour trail ride 10/13/2013 and he did great, no problems with traffic going by or navigating
on the trail. $300
SOLD Topper: 15 year old grade Saddlebred gelding. Topper
is approx. 15.2 hands tall. He is a very nice looking gelding with a good disposition. Easy to catch, stands tied, stands
for tacking up. We bought Topper at an auction after seeing him ridden around for hours by a very abusive rider. He was being
run back and forth, his mouth was being ripped on, he was hit with a stick and then finally hit in the head. It was one of
the worst cases of abusive riding we have ever seen. Because of this, when we brought him home we gave him some time off to
relax. He is a very forgiving horse and adjusted very well here. Topper is well broke to ride, however the first few minutes
of the ride he is a bit nervous, we're sure due to past treatment. Once he realizes no one is going to beat on him he relaxes.
Topper direct reins nicely and stops easily. He is light mouthed and has smooth gaits. We feel Topper would be best suited
to a confident intermediate rider. $475
SOLD General Lee: 3 year old pony stallion. General
Lee is a flashy chestnut with blue eyes and 4 socks. We were told he was a yearling but by his teeth he appears a bit
older than that. He is halterbroke and friendly but can be a bit skittish, I don't think he's been handled a ton. We
had his feet trimmed and once he figured out the farrier wasn't going to hurt him he behaved very well. With training he would
make a beautiful driving pony. If he's here next time the vet comes out I plan to have him gelded (and his price will
increase to reflect that). $75
