Riley

Riley (a.k.a Imagine That) is a 4 year old Appendix Quarter horse born on September 1, 2013. He is approximately 15.3 H (and growing). Riley has an amazing personality. He loves attention from everyone including kids and other animals. He bathes, clips, loads onto trailer, and is very good at taking any kind of medication. He is barefoot, and stands well for farrier. Up to date on all shots. Riley is a dark bay - his coat lightens and dapples in the summer and darkens in the winter.

Riley came to me at the age of 3. He is a PMU foal and was bottle fed, so when he arrived to me he was very mouthy but has improved dramatically. Riley is often uncomfortable in his low back area. I am working with my vet to improve his comfort level through Chiropractic Adjustments and stretches. Riley is currently on a stress relief supplement (Via-Calm). He is also getting a compound ulcer medication (Omeprazole).

Riley is a fast learner, but needs lots of consistency, and when he is comfortable he is amazing to ride (walk, trot, canter; no jumping). In my opinion, Riley would be best suited for versatility activities; but nothing that would put added pressure or tension to his back. Riley isn’t the kind of horse who can just be left as a “pasture ornament.” He needs attention, consistency, and trust. He can stay inside all day (if stall rest may be needed at some point). Right now, he is turned out during the day with an older gelding who is the boss. He is in a stall over-night. Riley will test his boundaries no matter what horse he is pastured with so it would be better for him to be with a more dominant horse, preferably a gelding. Riley is best suited for english riding, but has been ridden in a western saddle.

He has come a long way in the year and a half that I have owned him but still is in need of a lot of work, as he is only 4. I do not want to part ways with this handsome gelding, however he has just become a bit too much for me to handle at this point in my life. It's not fair to him. Unfortunately because of the ulcer medicine needed, and the chiropractic treatment needed to relieve his back issue, I am unable to give him the proper treatment and time he absolutely deserves. Because of his issues I am finding it almost impossible to find someone willing to give him the proper treatment and home he needs and deserves.  I am really looking for someone that is experienced, with patience and time to dedicate to Riley.  

Riley is located in Lanesborough MA. Please contact Michele Auriemma at 347-731-3634 or m.auriemma@aol.com

Curly and ginger

Looking to rehome two paints. Would like them to go together or at least to a barn where they get used to being separated. They have been part of the same herd since babies. Open to all options, partial lease, free to good homes, retirement home, co-op etc. More about them....

Curly is a 19 yr old, 16hh registered paint gelding - light palomino. He is a handsome, extremely easy going ham, we call him our 1200lb dog. Curly has been mostly trail ridden in western tack and a sidepull. He has some soundness issues after going through treatment for Lyme's. 

Ginger is a 20 year old, 15.3hh registered breeding stock paint mare - dark palomino. She has been ridden HUS and Western Pleasure but has only been trail ridden (usually in a sidepull) for the last 10 years. Ginger is very easy going and only spooky for fun, more whoa than go. She is very solid, stocky and large boned. Has some lumps and bumps but no soundness issues. Very easy keeper.

Curly and Ginger are UTD on all shots,worming, teeth and trims, negative Coggins May 17.  They are barefoot but would probably need shoes in front if ridden. Neither have been ridden much in the past few years but you can hop on them at any point with no issues. 

Both are located in Haverhill MA. Please email adavidowicz@yahoo.com or call cell 978-360-5461 for more information.

CASSIE

Cassie is a 17 year old 14.0hh dapple gray pony mare looking for a good companion home. Cassie is a fantastic little pony that I received as a gift at the age 12. I have had her for 10 years which makes parting with her hard. Due to a baby on the way I need to rehome my beloved pony. She is great with other horses and for the farrier and vet.

She has had Lyme's disease for a very long time and it does not affect her other than she cannot be ridden, which is why she is strictly for a companion home only! A contract will be required stating that I have first refusal. I want the very best for and I can no longer provide that for her. She is a fantastic pony who saved my life when I was 17 years old - contact me to learn more. She is an amazing pony who will make someone a great companion! Will you be the one to give her a chance?

Please call or text Makenzie 603-498-3790

PENNY

Penny is a ten year old quarter horse mare. She stands at a stocky 14.1 hands. Penny is everything you could imagine on the ground. She has impeccable manners, will stand for hours, and let you do almost anything to her. Penny self loads, stands for farrier and vet and she ground ties. She has no bad habits.

Penny has mild arthritis in her front heels which requires her to wear egg bars if she is being ridden. She gets along well with other horses but is dominant. Penny can only be in light work and does not like ring work. She would be best suited for light trails. She has been there and done everything you can imagine. She is bombproof and doesn't not spook.

Penny requires an advanced rider in the ring, as she is very knowledgeable and has schooled third level dressage movements. Penny can have a beginner on her if she is on a longe line. On the trails, Penny is good for an intermediate rider as she can sometimes get quick on the way home if it's dinner time!  Penny can be barefoot if she is not being used for riding. Overall she is an amazing horse but I cannot afford to care for her any longer.

Please contact me at 774-212-4599 if you're interested!!

TRIGGER and Frasier

Trigger and Frasier are quarter horse geldings. Trigger is a dark bay, 15 hands and approx. 21 years old. He is very affectionate. He rides both english and western but has not been ridden in a few years so would need to be reworked.  He is sound and up to date on all vaccines. 

Frasier is chestnut,16 hands and rides both English and Western.  He does have navicular however it has not progressed in the 7 years I have had this horse.  I ride him lightly due to the navicular, he would make a good beginner horse for a child due to this.  He is  up to date with vaccines. 

Both horses stay on the property and have no contact with other horses so I have not done a coggins test, they had one years ago when boarded and were fine. 

Trigger and Frasier are in Milton VT. Please contact Donna at 802.578.6315
