About our horses......
Belle, my mare, is a registered Morgan. She's liver chestnut in colour. She oozes personality She's very tactile - everything has to be felt with her lips and if we happen to leave hammers or other tools lying around while she's around you'll find her sauntering around with something in her mouth. She's a great trail horse with lots of stamina and no "spook" in her. Even after having her for 15 yrs I still can't believe she's mine. She's a great horse. In recent years she's been designated the grandkids' horse of choice for "horsey rides" - a role she's taken in her stride. She's dependable and level headed, a safe bet to lead the smaller children around on.
Chance is Cliff's horse. She's an Appendix Quarter Horse. She was a great trail horse but is "retired" now since Cliff has decided he's "retired" from riding. She's not nosy like Belle but she's friendly and well behaved.
Herby was our younger son's pony growing up but when our son outgrew him 18 yrs ago we decided he'd earned his retirement. Sadly Herby passed in September 2015 at the age of 38. He is greatly missed.
In February 2016 we found the most recent addition here at the farm. Zoey is an 18 yr old Welsh pony and we hope we'll have her with us for many more years. She's a really sweet little pony with a dash of naughtiness when the mood takes her (she's a typical pony). She's spunky and nothing much bothers her. The older grandkids are learning you have to be confident and assertive when dealing with a pony so for now Belle will continue to give the "horsey" rides to the little ones.
