Cowboy & Cherokee need a home together - - - -
CHEROKEE & COWBOY - The owner is looking to have these 2 boys adopted together.These are the 2 paint horses that we always rode in the Millstone Memorial Day parade. They are both 20 years of age, in good health and trailer easily. My horse, Cherokee (16.2h), is the horse I learned to ride on. Betty's horse, Cowboy (15.2h), would need a more experienced rider. Even though they are not related, they look very similar, almost like bookends. We've been riding the both of them for the past 15 years and that is why I am trying to keep them together. We did drill team, trail riding, etc. with them.
Contact Owner: Bob Bailey
Callie Dee is a 19 year sweet pretty mare looking for that special home.
She is a 15.2h, registered paint with a great blood line. She was purchased for me as a therapy horse over 5 years ago, and did her job well. Her previous owner had her for 6 plus years, I have her vet history for 12 years. Callie has been well cared for and is UTD on shots, worming, teeth, feet and current coggins. She is easy to work around, has good ground manners, stands well for the farrier, dentist and mounting, does not rear, kick or bite. Unfortunately I haven’t spent much time with her this past year due to circumstances, she deserves the time, attention and affection. She enjoys a soft hand and goes English or western and has been ridden in the ring periodically to keep her tuned up. Hasn’t been out in the trails for a while and prefers company when doing so. She is easy going and not in a rush to get anywhere, overall a nice horse with a kind eye. Sometimes she can be a bit stubborn when left alone to long but gets over it with a few cookies. She is not a big fan of trailering, you would need an experienced horse person to load her, once she’s on the trailer, she’s fine. She prefers her own run in shed or a come and go stall. Callie had a lamanitic event 5 years ago with no rotation, I have her x-rays. Her care requires front shoes, a low carb diet and to stay off of grass, she has not had any problems since just taking precautions and has done well.
I’m willing to adopt her out with a donation over $300.00 going to Helping Hearts Equine, with the conditions that if it doesn’t work out for any reason she will be returned to me (first right of refusal contract). She is stabled in Howell and farm owner says she’s an easy keeper.
If you feel you can enjoy her while providing a good loving home, please contact me at Helokidies@msn.com please reference Callie in subject line and leave your name and contact info.
Kiwi and Bonita have a hoome pending -- KIWI the pony
& BONITA the donkey
Kiwi is a gelded male at least 24 years old, blind in one eye and otherwise healthy and has been with me 22 years. Bonita is a healthy female and has been with me her entire life of 22 years. They both receive routine farrier care, teeth floated this year, and are fed the softest hay I can find, no grain or other supplements. They are accustomed to people and dogs that don't chase them. I am also aging and would like to see them have a good home, preferably together.
BRAD & LONNIE:
Brad is a lively 15-18year old Fjord/Welsh cross. He would make a FANTASTIC Trail horse. He came in from a family that couldn't keep their horses anymore. Proven to love to walk and trot, would make a great lead line pony with some work. Cannot go in any type of head setting device because of an old kick injury to his trachea. Has no health issues, is sound and need a good home, as promised to previous owner.
Good home needed, and can come with pasture mate, Lonnie, who has been with him for his lifetime, a 14 H Quarter horse mare, 20 years old, who is the sweetest mare alive. Will let kids crawl all over her and both are easy keepers
Just looking for good homes and would like to stay in contact if possible OR FREE lease definitely considered immediately!

ZEKE - He's 19 years old, 14.3 hh., was used as a therapeutic riding horse. fine for able-bodied riders advanced beginner and up. He was used in a lesson program before I bought him. He shouldn't be jumped anymore, but he is certainly good for walk/trot/canter.
We had some work done on our property which totally screwed up all of our pastures, and much of Zeke's and my other horses' two pastures has eroded and is all rock, so I'm really anxious to find him a good home. Thank you.

"Lucy" 16.2h Appendix quarter horse 14 yrs old. Very sweet mare, loves attention and is extremely quiet and safe. Has done everything from dressage to the jumpers. Been used in lesson programs and leased to Delaware Valley College for two years. Due to a recent injury she can only walk under saddle or be a companion horse. Would make a great therapy horse or pet for someone. Need to find a good home ASAP because I am graduating college and moving. Located in Howell, NJ.
Viva is a 11’ish yr old Canadian Warmblood mare. She stands about 16.2 hh. Her previous career was as a hunter-jumper, however due to overjumping she now has minimal cartilage in her right hind fetlock, so needed a change of careers. At the walk and trot she is sound. She is suitable for a beginner at walk/trot/canter – light riding. I don't have any x rays. She is located in howell New Jersey. Viva is a well mannered horse. Loves attention no bad habits. Gets along great with other horses. Suitable for light riding. I don't have her on any supplements but old owner had her on msn products.

Charna is her barn name which means dark or charcoal in several different languages. Her registered name is Miss Barbie Slew out of Ocala Slew and Crafty Barbie. She is he granddaughter of Seattle Slew. She's a 5h 2, 13 year old thoroughbred, is current on all shots, teeth and coggins. She's been kept barefoot for the last 6 years or more, using boots for riding.
I've had her for 8 years and bought her right off the track in Northampton, MA. I've done mostly trail riding with her. She jumps fine in the woods, but is a little afraid of the jumps in the arena. She can also be a bit stubborn once in a while. She's gotten used to deer, but is a little afraid of cows. She's much better on the trail when there's a large group of her friends along. She only direct reins and is in a Dr. Bristol bit at the moment. She's better in an open stock trailer rather than a small 2 horse, but she's had some work done with that.
She had one injury several years back. She stepped on something in the field... we have no idea what, but she cut her pastern down to the tendon. The tendon wasn't cut and she's recovered nicely from it and doesn't seem to have any issues.
She has a kind eye and is great on the ground, cross ties, picks up her feet nicely. She takes shots well doesn't need to be sedated when having her teeth floated, unless it's to grind down the hooks in the back (she has a slight parrot mouth). Does not crib or weave in the stall, but she will walk the stall if everyone else isn't in. She will occasionally drag her teeth on the bars if she's bored. She does get attached easily and had a boyfriend, who's now passed.
She loves peanuts, apples, corn and carrots and has tried plums and watermelon. She absolutely hates sweet potatoes.
Charna has been in 1/2 training for 2 years, which means that she is worked 1 hour 2x per week in the round pen and arena, doing groundwork and riding. Charna currently resides in Fredon, NJ.
Anything else you need to know I would be happy to reply to. I tried to think of as much as possible to include.
Thanks, Brenda 973-906-3439
I adopted a Camelot POA back in 2010. It is NOT an emergency, we are fully capable of keeping him here however he would flourish I think with someone who knows more of what they're doing than myself when it comes to under saddle work. Otherwise he would remain here as a pasture "puff". We named him "Tic Tac" because of his spots! He came to me VERY shy, not willing to pick up feet, had issues with the farrier, ground manners, head shyness etc. He now has very good ground manners, stands very good for vet, farrier and dentist (no sedation needed!) and has very little head shyness left at all. He lunges and knows what it's all about now, but can get very playful. He does sometimes startle or move away quickly with sudden/unexpected movements but otherwise has improved 100% from when he first arrived here. He is not bothered by heavy equipment, dogs etc. He gets along very well with our 24 year old mare and pony. I originally picked him up right at a very busy tractor trailer stop right off a busy interstate and he behaved as though he had been around that sort of environment before. He hopped right on the trailer without any hesitation, but has not been trailered since, although I would expect he would not have any trailering problem.
When we adopted him, we were told he was about 14 hands and that he was being fostered and would make a nice little trail horse, which is what we had been looking for. As you just read, that was not the case. But, we felt obligated to help this little guy to the best of our ability...which we have done. He is ready to move on with someone who can help him reach his potential under saddle...he free jumps in our ring and looks so adorable doing it that he would make an advanced small rider a wonderful little hunter pony or even dressage mount. He is approx. 8-9 years old as per dentist, 13.2 hands, white with dark chestnut and black spots, mottling around an adorable face (not the bulky face sometimes seen in POA's)....your typical little POA look...nicely built, easy keeper etc. Up to date on everything. I would never allow him to leave unless he was under a contract. If someone had a middle aged/ older "been there/done that" horse they have become bored with and would like a project , I would be willing to entertain a possible trade, but again would need a contract~ Sue Barry ~ East Killingly, CT email@example.com phone number (860) 234-0438
The horse is free to a good, approved home. I would need to approve of the facility/home. My vet can also give information on the horse if needed.
If interested, please contact Carol Anne at 732-239-1787 or 732-536-0130 after 5:00 P.M.
6 year old OTTB mare 15.2 green, really friendly and sweet. Just started back under saddle walk, trot, canter and over ground poles. Needs a strong confident intermediate/advanced rider. No previous health or injury issues. Can be a bit mareish at times.
Due to a back injury I can no longer give her the time and attention she needs and I don't want her just sitting in a field for the rest of her life. I want to see her go to a loving home.

"We got a Chance" aka "Chance" is a 12 year old Pinto Pony. About 14 hands, and all heart!!!
I originally bought chance for my 4 year old daughter to learn to ride on. A couple months after I purchased him, his eye flared up. After being diagnosed with uveitis, Chance started to have limited vision in his eye, which made it harder for my daughter to learn! He's one of the best horses I've owned. All personality! No bad vices with the exception of him learning his boundaries with his bad eye now. But mostly that's him bumping into things! He is now met for an intermediate rider (recommended due to eye) he's amazing on the trails! Would even do great in a walk/trot show. Needs a little work on the lope, if interested in showing him. He cross ties, baths, trailers, feeds beautifully ! Good man having his feet done! Sometimes he thinks he's the boss in the field! But not a mean bone in his body!
Chance is in need of a GOOD home, a happy one! I love him dearly but can no longer afford him, due to the fact I board my horses. If there are any questions concerning him I can be reached at:

More pictures are available as well!

She has a great personalty and gets along with other horses. I did western games with her for the time I had her. She loves to go out on trails. She will need someone who has been there done that. She needs a little work I haven't really had time for her. I would love to see her go to a loving home where she can be happy and get the love that she deserves.

Serene Joy - Joy is a beautiful 2001 TB mare. Joy has been in training for a few months and is doing fantastically. Walk/trot/canter under saddle, basic dressage work and is beginning work over fences. She has wonderful ground manners, is barefoot and completely sound.She has the potential to make someone a lovely all around or performance horse. She has beautiful movement and is incredibly smart. Contact owner for more info and price. In the pics please note that she is ridden bareback - that is how she is ridden the majority of the time. A brief history of her: She did race briefly, then went on the become a broodmare. Had three lovely babies and then we began her training. She has been completely healthy, has never needed the vet for any health issues, just the normal pregnancy care and visits. I have owned her for 6 years. Marisa -- email@example.com
He is a white 17 year old registered Arabian gelding approximately 15.2 hands. He has great ground manners, ground ties, loads and unloads. He is up to date on all his shots, farrier and dentist. The owner before me used him for endurance competition and was advised by her vet upon learning of a condition he has (pedalostitis) that he should no longer compete but can still be a pleasure trail riding horse. He needs an experienced rider who is familiar with Arabs and their high spirited tendencies. He would also be a great companion horse. He is not aggressive with other horses at all. This shy, sweet boy needs a forever home.
Thanks again. My phone number is 908-415-9445.
