4 yr old, 16hh Thoroughbred mare “Galvinel” is available for adoption in Marysville, OH for $500. Anyone looking for a hunter, eventer, polo, or pony club horse this is your girl. She is extremely self-confident and likes to work in a crowd which is not typical of a horse just coming off the track. She is not afraid to march right through a group of mares in her turn out group and get them to do what she wants them to do. On top of that she is athletic, balanced, and forward-thinking plus the fact that she is brave and these are all traits that would make her a nice eventing prospect as well. She will require a slightly more advanced rider that can keep her on task and focused to get the most out of her natural ability.
Monty Cat is a 15.3 1/2, Bay, thoroughbred gelding. He us available for adoption for $600 in Marysville, OH. This hard working guy still has a competitive side to him that would make him a star in his next discipline.
Subtle Irony is a 5yr old 16.3h , bay thoroughbred, gelding by Artie Schiller. He is located in Lexington, KY for a $700 adoption fee. He is a graduate of the elite thoroughbred nursery at Winstar He is a cool, level-headed guy who has been nicknamed “Vitto”.
Mobo is a 16 hand, bay, gelding and is available for $500 in Marysville, OH. This quiet, unassuming guy holds a great secret of how good he was on the track in just 2 short years of racing. From a rough first start, to winning 3 of his races by 6 ½, 10 and 12 lengths, he was often the pace setter and always showed good speed. The fact that he was the odds on favorite in over half of his races shows Mobo was a favorite at the track just as he is a favorite with us at our facility. After all, he did sell for $125,000 as a yearling. Mobo is such a kind horse both to handle and to ride and is also a great babysitter for our more difficult boys. He quietly controls the pasture without kicking or pushing the others around and soon his pasture mates are calmly grazing nose to nose with him. Amazingly he had been off the track for 3 ½ years prior to coming to us and when he started back under saddle, he went right to work like he hadn’t missed any time away because he has such a sharp mind. As you can see in the video, Mobo will follow you anywhere being the people-pleaser he is and is game for anything, but prefers to be left alone and not micromanaged while being ridden. He says he knows his job! Very easy to handle on the ground, respectful, and loves attention which makes him fun to be around and will make someone a great pleasure horse
Tall, Handsome Gelding w/ a Big Personality! Humor is a 16.2h, chestnut gelding and ready for adoption in Marysville, OH! photo credit Stephanie Moon Humor is the class clown of the barn and he has a big personality so he will do anything for attention from swinging his ball around on the front of his stall to his own form of dance at his stall gate when trying to communicate his wishes to anyone who will listen. He is always entertaining and loves an audience. There is rarely a time when he doesn’t have his head over the stall gate watching everything that goes on around him because life is very interesting in the barn. Even outside he has a very active mind and will check out anything that interests him as he plays in his paddock with his turn out buddy. When it is time to work though, he knows how to take his job seriously and he seems to enjoy working. Humor is definitely athletic and has good natural balance, which he comes by honestly through good breeding. Right now he will be suitable for flatwork and may possibly be able to do some jumping in the future. Humor sold for $25,000 as a yearling and for $150,000 as a 2 year old which is not surprising considering who his sire is. Humor’s sire, Sharp Humor, was a Graded Stakes winner coming in second in the million dollar Florida Derby to Barbaro and is now the second leading sire in North America. His sire’s sire, Distorted Humor, was a Multiple Graded Stakes winner and his off spring have earned over $95 million
