Chief is a 16.1 H  14 year old Black Thoroughbred Gelding. My daughter is going to college and I do not ride. He is looking for a home with light ring work and trail riding. Chief loves trail riding and is confident. He can ride alone or in group. Chief has recently been diagnosed with beginnings of kissing spine on 2 areas and should not jump or compete. 

Our vet feels he has many years ahead of him and is serviceably sound for trails and light ring work and encouraged us to reach out to find a suitable home. The vet is willing to share her medical assessment and future riding ability with anyone who is interested in Chief. 

Chief is calm, willing, confident and safe to work around. He enjoys human companionship and pleasing his rider. Chief is great alone or turned out with others. He is an easy keeper, good hooves that does not require shoes, stands for farrier, updated on shots and Coggins.

Please call Michelle at 781-632-5500 if you are interested in learning more about Chief.  Chief is free to approved home only.

Max is a 20+ yr old mini stallion. He came to us from a backyard situation and we have had him for 5 years. He was able to get turned out with mares for many years but lately seems to be stressed by the mares. He is currently turned out with a gelding and they are great together.

Max is so sweet and loves attention especially from kids. He needs a job and has great ground manners if away from mares and in the right setting. We love Max but feel he would be more suitable at a farm without mares possibly as a companion for a gelding.

He is up to date with all vaccinations/ trimming

Lacey is a 14 year old registered paint, sorrel overo.  She was used as lesson horse barn at another barn, and was a very good jumper.  Used English mostly, but I used westerntack on her as my abilities decreased.

About 15.1 hands, healthy, good feet, up to date with vet, Coggins, and shoes.  Only front shoes.  Would be best suited for intermediate rider as she is marish and very smart.

Peaches is a 20+ Appy cross looking for her forever home. Companion and/or light riding home would be the ideal situation. She stands about 15.1 and is pretty stocky.   She is the sweetest girl, will stand to be groomed all day, LOVES attention, and will give kisses for peppermints! I would love to see her go to a home where she will have a pasture buddy. She goes out with 4 other horses now, but is the lowest on the totem pole and doesn't mind. She has formed a bond with our 3 yr old gelding that we have which is why I would like for her to have a friend. We believe we have found a home for him and he will be leaving next week. We are worried that she might get a little depressed once her best buddy is gone. She is good for the vet and farrier and is currently barefoot. She is very low maintenance and a PEACH to have around! 

Contact me for more information (Bonni) at blinteri77@hotmail.com. Peaches is located in Candia NH.

Remmy is a 11 year old, registered quarter horse (I have his papers), 15.1hh, gelding, excellent trail horse and will cooperate in the ring. However, loves to be out on the trails, does best with a buddy but will go out solo. Remmy is a very sweet horse; always looking to please his rider. Was used on a ranch as a trail horse but really loves having his own person and I'm hoping he can find a loving forever home with someone who will spoil him and give him all the time and attention he deserves. He has been off for a little so will need some retraining and time to get back on track. Wears corrective shoes in the front for a bone spur and shallow sole depth but is sound with the shoes. Remmy should go to a home that is flat and grassy and easy on his hooves, loves turnout and gets along well with other horses. Intermediate rider would be best but has been ridden by beginners. 

Located in Clinton Corners, NY. Contract will be signed and references checked. Free to good home.
