Dancing In Daisies

Breeding Stock Paint Mare 3 years 14.2 hands

We have her official name listed but she is and always will be THE Huppie. We originally rescued her at the age of four months when she had been abandoned by her owner because she was 'just a filly'. How sad. At nine months we placed her in what we believed was her 'forever' home but she was returned to us at the age of two because of family problems and because she was going to be 'too small' for competition as a barrel horse. We were surprised to hear that because we had placed her as a pleasure horse only... In any case she has grown a great deal and is now 14.2 hands. We expect she may get a bit bigger in the next year. Excellent ground manners, loads well. She is an 'in your pocket', type of a horse, very right brained and wants badly to be near you. She has a beautiful, suspended trot and would make a lovely carriage horse. She can only leave our care if we find a forever home were she can make the connection that she really needs.


Cayenne

Cayenne

Quarter Horse 6 years Sorrel 16 hands

This is one beautiful mare. Mishandled since her arrival in Nevada, Cayenne has very little faith in people. She has good reason to feel that way. When her former owners could not wear her down or catch her by depriving her of food and water, they finally decided to have a few beers, invite a few friends over, drive her in a pen and rope her. Trouble with that plan is that a terrified Cayenne fought them. The ropes were pulled tighter and tighter until Cayenne lost all air and collapsed to the ground. When she regained consciousness she had been haltered, hog-tied and the drunken men standing around her took turns rubbing and smacking the terrified mare. We could not leave her. These days she is seeking contact, approaching us willingly to be haltered and doing well with her ground work. She has been loaded in a trailer. She will be prepared for saddle work this fall if we believe she is ready. We can wait. We believe she is worth waiting for.


Huckleberry Pie

Huckleberry Pie

Andalusian Gelding 15 hands 19 yrs. Grey

Huckleberry is a dream horse. This gelding was abandoned at a boarding stable and subsequently rescued by The Huppie Syndicate at a lien foreclosure sale. We were told that he was a former San Bernardino Posse mount that was retired due to a bowed tendon which has healed. He was given to a family as a horse for their children. We have been researching his past and the California Mounted Horseman's Association has been very helpful. Currently he is in recovery. Sweet, willing and genuinely desiring a connection with his human, Huckleberry is good under saddle. So far we have only been doing walk/trot riding along country roads but to date he has been unflappable. This is truly a dream horse.


Forrest

Forrest

Breeding Stock Paint Gelding 7 years old 15 hands Bay

What a wonderful guy! Forrest is a great gelding that is green broke. He is very willing and VERY brave on the trail. He looks to his rider for direction. He is currently being ridden barefoot and has great feet. He is a little long in loin and has a hunter's bump which we have been told will not affect his performance or rideability. Great, great horse!


Skittles

Skittles

Paint filly born May 2, 2009

This is a beautiful blue-eyed paint filly with tons and tons of personality. She was rescued with her dam at three weeks of age. Her former owners were starving poor Skittles and her mom.


Makia

Makia

Paint Mare approximately 5 years

Makia has one blue eye and one marbled eye. She is sweet, willing and wants to connect with people. She needs someone to trust. Makia is Skittle's dam and was starved. She looks so much better after nearly three months of rehab!
