Axl is a 4yo affectionate 14.2hh brown QH x TB gelding .....
“ My kids adore him. He is a pleasure to have, placid and playful, chases the dogs for fun and will follow you all day. He came to me with an untreated wound and stringhalt. Now his wound looks great but attempts to fix the stringhalt have failed, therefore he will not be a riding horse. He would make a great pet/lawn mower or companion horse.”
Tiny is a 7 year old 15 hand thoroughbred mare looking for a long term home. Tiny has well established manners in hand even when away from the herd and put into new environments. She was ridden last year and was responsive to all aids under saddle but at this stage has had the majority of her training done at liberty and in hand. Tiny learns quickly, is forward and good with spooky things. She is showing great promise with liberty work.
Like many horses Tiny has required targeted exercises to support her physical development and will require this into the future.
If you like a horse that comes running when she sees you, is cheeky and quick and you know and keep your boundaries then Tiny may be for you. She is well and truly ready to have more challenges to keep her engaged.
Willow is a 5yo paint mare who came into Project Hope care after alleged neglect. She had been kept for breeding despite having bowed front legs. She would run up to be near people, but when close was scared of human contact, easily frightened.
Jillian spent 6 months handling Willow. Willow now takes time to trust you, but after this she is happy to be brushed, front feet picked up, and to be haltered and handled. She still does not like to go off on her own from the herd.
Willow likes people and runs up to people she knows. She is looking to spend more time as a companion horse meeting new people, learning to be more relaxed and enjoying humans.
Axel is a nine year old 15.3 h standard bred, probably never raced. He loves the company of other horses and people is easy to catch, good to float and well behaved for dentist and farrier and keeps weight on easily.
Axel has only one eye and can be a little nervous on his blind side, he has also had past injury to his mouth and is missing a few teeth so will need regular visits by the dentist, because of these problems this friendly fellow will most likely be a paddock pal and not a riding prospect.
