Liberty is a Quarter Horse Mare that is Dapple Grey. Liberty was purchased with a few other horses when the ranch changed ownership. Liberty is approximately 18 years old and is currently one of our alpha mares. She loves to head the trail rides but only if her boyfriend CJ comes with her. Look for Liberty, she'll be the one sneaking a snack!
LIKES: Any and ALL Kinds of Food
Dislikes: Other Mares, Being Caught
Frank and Beans are our Brothers. We originally went to purchase only Frank and his previous owners mentioned that him and his brother had never been separated. So after much thought we decided to bring both boys home with us and vowed to never separate the two. Franck and Beans are Quarter Horses. Frank is a Blue Roan and Beans is a Bay and 26years old. RIP FRANK 12-2011

The horse in the middle is Ladybird. She is a 28 year old Belgian Mare who we purchased from a breeding farm in Southern Il. Ladybird is so big she had to be delivered to our facility because we didn't have a trailer large enough to pick her up with. She is a VERY docile and gentle ride.
Likes: The Short Distance Slow Paced Trail Rides & Her Easter Seals Campers
Dislikes: Getting her nails done and Other Girls that try to take her food
Miracle joined our family by default Ten years ago. She was brought to our facility as part of our Boarding Services and one day her owner just never came back. So we took he in with open arms as a 6 year old UNBROKEN paint mare. Now she has molded into our program nicely. She is very laid back and passive. She does her job well.
Likes: Being first in line Dislikes: Other Mares other than Abi
This is Abi our rescue pony. We purchased her at an auction and it wasn't until we got her home that we realized she has been sedated. After MUCH TLC Abi fits in nicely to our program. She is no longer afraid of humans but in her eyes she "tolerates" us. She is the pick for most of our young riders for her size and gentle trail manners. Abi was a huge part of our 4H program and has been successfully shown for the past 6 years. Abi is a Bay Quater Pony and is 24 years old.
Likes: Horse Shows, Miracle and Trail Rides Dislikes: Mean People
This is Kash. He is a 18
year old American Paint Horse. He was purchased in Southern Il and is a favorite by our trail riders mostly because of his Palomino color. He is ridden mostly by one of our guides, Melissa, who spoils him regularly. He's a go with the flow type of guy!

This is Shadow. She is a 18 year old Blue Roan Appaloosa Mare. She was purchased in Tennessee where she was used as a family trail horse. She is most commonly recognized as the horse with no tail and the beautiful color. It is a characteristic of this breed to have very thin hair and Shadow definitely fits the bill.

This is Tex. His registered name is IMA SUPER TEXAN! He is the horse that seems to get into everything. If any of the horses get out you can be sure Tex is the one who showed them the way.

ACHOO! Looks like Precious had to sneeze for her picture! Precious is a very sweet and quiet girl. She is one of our taller but gentle horses. Precious often gets confused with some of our other horses because she is mostly sorrel in color.

Here he is.. the one and only SCOUT! He is by far one of the favorites. He is liked because of his painted color, size, and sweet tempermant. Scout's registered name is IMA GOOD BOY SCOUT and that is SO true. Other than sneaking a snack on the trail rides Scout is our golden trail horse. He follows the rules and is kind to his riders.
