Uno is a Mini Mule
he is a bit of a project because he was once used as a "roping dummy". We were told there were open oozing wounds on his neck when he was rescued. Uno has come a long way still seems to trust kids much more than adults !
Foxy is a Palomino Paint and one of our best "kid horses". She is a staple of our lesson program at the barn and hundreds of kids can say Foxy is the first horse they ever rode on the beach or in the arena every year !
Jake is one of the founding members of our string. He has proven to be a great guide or customer horse. Gary gifted Jake to our Head Guide Tiana Clark because they work so well together !
Registered Quarter Horse
Chrome is the Foundation of our string and alpha to the herd. He is not the biggest or strongest, just the most tenacious. He is typically used as a guide horse and ponies the younger kids on the beach rides.
Paint with both blue eyes
Dolly is probably the most docile horse he have. She loves kids and is currently leased by our Lead Guide Miranda Jacob. Miranda's son Jax rides her in the lessons.
"Bella Boo" aka "Boo Boo"
Percheron Draft/ Quarter horse cross
Bella has asserted herself as the alpha mare and is quite the "Diva" . She is very smooth and responsive, just stay out of her bubble !
May be eligible for our shared lease this winter !
Ghost is a nucklehead. He has a condition called PSSM which basically means he has a high maintenance special diet. He still hasn't figure out why his own shadow is always sneaking up on him.
Clydesdayle/ Paint cross
Mr. T fell in love with Bella at first sight and after years of resistance and many scars later... they get along famously. At 19 years old Mr. T will retire from the beach to green pastures and long naps in the sun this year.
Registered "Charly Petite"
Charly is a founding member of our string. At 20 years old he is going strong but is also looking at retirement this year. Charly makes up for his lack of ground manners for his smooth ride. Many returning customers ask for him specifically.
Belgium/Fjord Draft cross
Tiny is probably our biggest horse and she is so sweet she deserves a name more like "Love". Tiny attends of several parades and carries our smallest kids in our lesson program. Tiny may be eligible for one of our partial leases this year.
Duke is actually on loan to us this year. Sara, Ron and Brooklyn board him with us at our barn in Lincoln City and graciously let us use him while they tend to their brand new baby. Duke is so solid we wish we had 10 more just like him !
Some times when we get a "horse with no name" we get to make one up... his was a combination of Gary's fathers name (he had to buy him for himself to convince us to name him Walter...) and still had to compromise with all the kids that went to pick him up !
Sunny is a BLM mustang rescue. He was born in the wild and he might be the smartest horse we have, the problem is he is just smart enough to be a pain in the butt !
Dual Registered Quarter Horse and Palomino
Registered Foundation Quarterhorse
Toby is the latest addition to our string... So new we haven't even paid for him yet ! Toby has proven to be a solid member of our string and he is replacing one of the 2 favorite kid horses we were forced to retire this year due to medical conditions.
