Sniper came to us young, unbroken, and a stud. When we had our vet out we found out he was a cryptorchid, at this point we took him to Virginia Tech to have the surgery to geld him. After recovery and some time to mature training began. This guy was perfect from the beginning. Here he is now all grown up and living a fantastic life.
Dylan was pulled from a slaughter auction, labeled dangerous and then ended up with us. After many hours, patience, and love the fear slowly left this horses eyes. He started to enjoy life. Once he was under saddle and much calmer Dylan found his own family. He loves living with them and is spoiled rotten. This is truly a happy ending, Dylan simply wanted love and someone to tell him that we don't have to run from butterfly's. Here he is today being the perfect gentleman that no one expected him to be. This is what we do and why we exist, horses that everyone has lost hope in or have been deemed untrainable still deserve one last chance.
Danny. He was an owner surrender and was untrained. Danny was one of our first adoptions. He has turned in to quite the good boy.
Message from Owner: He's super quiet, calm around small animals and been exposed to cows out in the pasture. He neck reins and I have ridden him in just a halter using my finger tips on his neck. He is also a regular at Cedarville State park, Oak Ridge Park, Maxwell Hall. We will work on conditioning over the winter and I hope to give him his start in Western dressage next spring. If anyone has any questions about him, let me know. Look for him on the trails this fall since I just got cleared by the doc to ride yesterday. I'll post some more pics. Thanks S.O.F.E for the opportunity to own a great horse like Dan!!!
Marigold is now with Equine Welfare Society!
Today we welcome Marigold! This statuesque Standardbred mare came to us through collaboration with S.O.F.E and has some experience under saddle. She seems to be intelligent, friendly, and confident, and we are excited to start working with her!
