Timber

timber

timber2

"Timber" is a 6 year old chestnut QH mare. 15.0-15.1hh, she is GUARANTEED sane and sound. She clips, ties, loads, stands to be saddled and mounted, great on trails, etc... and she LOOOOOOVES WATER! This mare is a pleasure to work with, and she will excel at most disciplines. Her mind and heart can't be beat. No buck, no rear, no bull. She rides in a simple snaffle and has EXCELLENT ground manners.  She is young and chock-full of talent, so we would like to see her go to someone that is willing to continue her training and see how far she can go!  She's a solid citizen. Timber sells with a trial period. Don't miss out on the mare of your life!

This is Timber's "story"... what we know of it, anyway. ~Rachel

We pulled Timber from Sugarcreek early this spring. I spoke with the dealer that brought her to the sale, and he claimed that a 13 year old boy rode her all over all last summer (when she would have been 5). I don't believe a word I'm told by dealers, but I heard him out. As I walked away, I asked him what her name was. He couldn't even tell me. He had no idea. Soooooo I'm taking all his other info with a grain of salt. However, his son was riding her around the sale barn with big spurs, and had a running martingale on her. He would spur her mercilessly... then when she sped up her would slam her in the face (yank yank yank). She was being a saint for him. I later looked at her bit and it was a thin hard twist. We outbid the killer and brought her home. We turned her out and let her relax for awhile, then put her through an evaluation. She was intimidated and tense about the bit (understandably!), but didn't step out of line once. In less than 5 short uneventful rides she was relaxed and actually lazy. We have had an advanced beginner ride her and she did great but I think she deserves to be finished (she has SO much talent!) and while an advanced beginner could ride her occasionally, she should still have someone that could continue her training. She is a DOLL and she is willing, and even a bit lazy!  She went from a worried submissive animal that was obedient out of fear to a silly goofy sweet mare that tries to take off with the water hose and is the first one up to you in the pasture. I can't say enough about her. She has really rewarded us for saving her.  Whoever ends up with her should consider themselves lucky!

Timber is not at the Last Chance Corral (but she is in Athens OH).  This a courtesy post for LCC's Rachel Bendler.  Contact Rachel at (740)707-0793  (call or text) for more information about Timber.  A part of her sale will go to the Last Chance Corral, the rest will be used to pull more horses from Sugarcreek.  Delivery available for an additional fee.

$1600, contact Rachel at (740)707-0793 (call or text) for more info.

"Romeo"

Romeo is also here because of changes in his owners' lives.  He is a Spotted Draft X Draft pony.  He is a very dark bay Paint with perfect feet.He was trimmed every month of his life (his owners really did love him)!  He is currently 14 H,1" and should finish out at 15 H, 1".  He is gelded and current on everything.  He is ready to rock and roll in the training arena and become whatever you come up with...myself, I'm thinking that he could pull a little gypsy wagon when he isn't being a pony club jumper or trail riding at sunset.

Adoption Fee:  $700

 
Giselle

giselle

giselle2

Giselle - she is as sweet as honey and pretty as a peacock. She moves with the grace of a ballerina. Her trot has incredible suspension and float. Very, very fancy!

This is going to be a super special large pony - small horse. She is a 2 year old - that makes her a project for some lucky person. Someone who wants to create the perfect horse. As a blank slate she is spectacular!

Traffic doesn't bother her. She is just fine with water, trailers, etc.

I couldn't leave her behind at the sale. She got the living daylights kicked out of her by a big halflinger that had her on the ground and was still kicking her. Thank goodness Stacy was there! She probably saved this pony's life.

She's been started and probably underwent your base Amish saddle breaking and training. I think that she deserves another start allowing her to develop to her fully potential.

Adoption Fee: $600

 
Wrangler

wranglerwrangler2

Wrangler - an older gentleman with the savoir faire that only comes with experience. He has a touch of gray at the temples. He is missing some weight but we will help him find it. It just might be at the bottom of the feed bin!

Quiet, non-assuming, perfect manners, broke to death. I really do think that this horse may be bomb proof. A babysitter! Stacy went ahead and simply dropped her reigns and he just kept on keeping on. He knows his job and he will perform it regardless. What a solid citizen!

If you are looking for that REALLY SAFE horse, one you could put a complete beginner on and know that they will come back in one piece, then saddle up. He will wrangle you in a good time.

Adoption Fee:  $600

 
Brunhilda

hilde

Brunhilda - Did some careless person put their percheron in the dryer? She is a 6-7 year old black draft pony mare. Possibly a "mini-percheron" or "blacklinger". You can crawl all over her. Traffic -- no worries! Water -- whatever! Easy keeper? You betcha! Ride and drive. Loads herself in the trailer.

Her ground manners could use some "refinement" as she can be a little "pushy". She is TOTALLY obedient to a big stern voice but is becoming more sensitive to a "soft touch". She just needs a little dialing into the program.

I am positive she drives as well; she was afterall an Amish pony. Her haircut indicates driving as well. As soon as that forelock grows back she will be cuter than a litter of golden retrievers! As soon as I can rig her a harness that fits, we'll be off!

Hildy is an adorable pony destined to be anyone's favorite! Big enough to carry any adult, small enough to not intimidate a child.

You can visit her at the farm or come see her in the Deleware, Ohio All Horse Parade on September 7th.

Adoption Fee: $900

 
Zippo

zippozippo_2

Zippo - 15 year old Quarter pony gelding. He is named after his Vietnam veteran owner's "lucky lighter". He grew up in the rugged hills of Appalachia. He is as sure footed as one of the white-tailed deer that roam these hills. You can shoot off of him and he is no stranger to packing game out of the woods. Sadly, his owner passed last Halloween, leaving Zippo behind.

This is one fancy boy! He is 14 hands 2" tall with a mountain of presence. He neck reigns and is extremely sensible. Sound as the price of gold. There's not much I can say about this horse that his photos don't show!

You can visit him at the farm or come see him in the Delaware, Ohio All Horse Parade on September 7th.

Adoption Fee:$1200

 
Officer Stryker

Officer

Officer4Officer3

Officer Stryker - a 10-11 year old, 16 hand 2", black Warmblood gelding. Recovering (rapidly) from starvation. Sound-good manners. No bad habits - I know nothing of his history but he is an alleged hunter jumper.

He has great hooves and a very thick tail - his last owner cut it because of burrs but it is growing fast. He as a double mane that goes clear down to his upper arm. He has one quarter-sized white spot at the center of the coronary band on his right rear.

A big horse with a mysterious past. He was at a very prestigious facility in Illinois when his owner ran out of cash. If you recognize him and know his story please let me know.

Adoption Fee: TBD

 
Tristen

TristenWaterTristanTristan2

Tristan3

Tristen is a 15 year old Thoroughbred, bay gelding. Sound and SANE. He is quiet, easy-going, and people oriented. Tristen has done the hunter/jumper scene and some dressage. He would make a great pony club horse or 4-H or, or, or heck, why limit him or pigeon hole this personable guy. You use your imagination.

I haven't had time to get on him yet; when we do we will post photos. 

He is any easy keeper. $750 adoption fee and he comes with his own bridle he packed in a hobo hanky and tied it on a stick. The only reason that this horse is here is the success of his owner. Her promotion kept her from her beloved horse and she did the right thing by letting him go. It wasn't easy for her but the horse should be doing something besides loafing and being lonely for love.

Adoption Fee: $750
