Ranch & Therapy Horses
Meet Lucia! born June 4th, 2018 here on the ranch to Cricket, our mini burrow.
Lucia started hopping fences at a week old and is quite a little clown!
And we love her to bits!!
Flip is our tattooed black/grulla mustang. He stands 14.1 hands and has had experience in the gymkhana arena. He’s a gentle, pony sized horse with a funny sense of humor.
Rusty our sweet ol' sorrel, comes to us as a rescue from Eldorado County Animal Control. We don't know much about his history, but he is an older gentleman that is perfect for beginners and small children. Although we do not use him for riding anymore, he loves the attention during ground skills…… and finger painting!
Nadie,is our little mini mare that came to us as a rescue. She is a doll and, yes, Toby’s mommy too! She is not ridden, but is an important part of our ground skills team. She loves "dress-up" with the little girls who braid her mane and tail.
Toby" nicknamed Pistol
Little Toby is a mini baby, born on the ranch and a favorite with the children and adults alike. He was just 6 months old when this picture was taken. He is now 3 years old
He loves playing with the children and gives wonderful hugs!
Maverick came to us as a Butte Fire rescue in Febuary of 2016. He, among many others displaced by the raging Butte Fire. He lost his home from that fire and was unable to stay at his temperary home anymore. Maverick has quickly readjusted and has become a great addition to our team.
Big Cisco is a gentle, well trained draft horse cross. Although his favorite thing to do is carrying around preschoolers on his back around the lesson ring, his favorite pastime is goofing off and showing the others who's boss !
Our newcomers! All the way from Texas.
