This is Heather and her pony Mr. S'mores. He is 11, and was rescued at age 14 months.
She took him from just barely halter broke, wormy and scared.....to a phenomenal
4-H show pony, and is now playing Parelli games and trailriding throughout central
NH. She can even load him on a trailer in the middle of the road! Right now she's
teaching him how to drive, and learning how to trim his feet herself.
This is Dilly, an 8 month-old Miniature Horse & Hava Another Playboy, a 21 year-old
retired cutting horse who was shown all over the US. Dilly is my precious gift whose
mom carried her 384 days. Playboy is the only large horse I would trust in the pasture
with the minis. He walks behind them like he is the guard dog. They make him feel
like he has a job to do once again!
Meet the one and only Cadillac Jack! He is a 17 year-old red dun Quarter Horse gelding.
He was a working ranch horse before he came to live with us. You can do anything
with him-crawl under his tummy, "lead" him without a rope, put bunny ears on him
for Easter and antlers for Christmas, etc. When he's lying in the sunshine napping,
we will lie against his back and under his neck, and he will snuggle as close as
he can. His favorite things are to eat and to be loved. He will stop at nothing
to make us laugh, including picking up brushes and buckets with his teeth, helping
me clean his stall by raking through the bedding with the manure fork handle in
his mouth, yawning repeatedly (up to a dozen times), and playing music by blowing
into his milk jug toys. Jack has captured the hearts of nearly everyone that has
met him with his playful personality, beauty, and his gentle innocent spirit. He
is truly the horse of a lifetime.
