The essential joy of being with horses
is that it brings us in contact with the rare elements of grace, beauty, spirit, and fire. --Sharon Ralls Lemon
Siri is a 7 year old OTTB mare standing at about 15.2 hands. She came to us as an owner surrender in July of 2012. She has a beautiful trot and a lovely canter. Siri requires an experienced rider as she is very green. She is lazy at home, but needs off property experience. Siri has tons of potential and is very athletic. An excellent project! $700

Ashley is a 7 year old 13.3 hand Welsh/Morgan/Holsteiner cross registerable with the American Sport Pony Registry. Ashley goes w/t/c, is a beautiful mover and a fantastic jumper. Her sire is a registered section A Welsh Stallion named B.F. Oliver Twist. Her grand sire on her dam's side jumped 6' at the 100 day stallion testing. Ashley stands for tacking up, but seems to prefer females over males. She can be a bit jumpy. Ashley needs a gentle but firm hand under saddle. She needs work at keeping her gaits consistent as she tends to be on the speedy side, but she has excellent brakes. Currently jumping 3' $2500
Flashy Eyed Lily

Horses Available for Adoption
Bruster is a 1991 Saddlebred gelding rescued from New Holland. Bruster was an Amish cart horse and developed severe road founder. His feet are very sensitive and he is most comfortable in shoes. He would probably do best with glue on shoes but we are working on correcting the angles in his hoof. He is a sweetheart on the ground and an easy keeper although his grain does need to be wetted down. Bruster is available as a companion only. $1
Uno was an owner surrender who was severely underweight when he arrived on 9/14/2012. Uno has since put on a lot of weight and has turned into an easy keeper. He is a sweetheart on the ground but is not sound for riding so he is available as a companion only. $1
Foxy is a 1988 Saddlebred mare who is available as a companion only. Foxy is very sweet on the ground and enjoys being groomed. Foxy is not sound for riding and needs a retirment home with someone who will love her! $1
Maika Me First
Maika is a 15.2 hand 1998 OTTB mare. Maika has excellent ground manners and enjoys attention. She is going w/t/c and over small fences. Intermediate rider needed at this time but has the potential to become a good lesson horse. Wears front shoes. Her primary need is conditioning work as she was out of work for 4 years. Very comfortable to ride. $500
Kia is a 16 hand 1996 OTTB mare who was recently returned to LFHR. Kia is a stunning mover. She had not been ridden in 8 years due to her adopter's daughter losing interest in riding so she was kept as a pet. Unfortunately due to financial reasons she had to be returned. Due to a cyst in her hock Kia is sound for flatwork only and will likely need annual hock injections. x-rays are available. $400
Maybelline is a 1995 miniature horse mare who is about 34 inches tall. Maybelline (named for her black eyeliner) is well mannered, easy to handle, and loves people. She was part of an animal hoarding case in Mississippi involving 218 animals. She is a great companion and an easy keeper- her grass intake should be limited as miniatures are often at risk for founder. $500
Pippy is a 2003 Miniature Horse who was rescued from an animal hoarding case in Mississippi. This girl is a spunky little mare! She would do best with a family who wants to work with her rather than as a companion only. She needs a job! Pippy currently line drives and would make a great driving mini. $500
1996 OTTB Gelding, 15.3 hands. Oro is a very kind horse who definitely aims to please. In the few months since he was returned to LFHR, he has been working on regaining trust and understanding of bit communication. On the ground he is a gentleman with great stable manners. He is very balanced and steady WTC and is an easy jumper over fences. With a rider with very soft and steady hands he is incredibly soft in the mouth, but gets upset and stiff to rein mistakes, and therefore needs at least an intermediate rider. He goes in a french link loose ring snaffle and wears front shoes.
1994 Pinto 15.3 hands. Cleo is as level-headed as they come. She is the proud mother of one of our mule yearlings and has proven to have quite a maternal streak to her. She is currently being ridden under saddle WT on trail and has great potential to be a "husband horse" with a few more miles on her. Never a misstep, Cleo takes everything in stride and is quiet and calm about everything. Because she is still green, she only understands unilateral rein aides (direct rein turns and one rein stops). She is quickly learning how to move off leg pressure and is very easy to ride. Cleo is also learning how to lay down as part of her training. Cleo goes in a snaffle bit and does not wear shoes. $500

JJ's Max's adopter needs to rehome him but has offered to keep him for a short period of time while we search for a new home.
