Favored Hearts

 Favored Hearts are the horses we are fortunate to be allowed to bring out of killpens as fosters.. We pull the horses most in need first. Horses who are suffering from illness, injury, or low body weight; the ones who come into the lot and immediately start to lose ground, the ones who suffer from herd starvation within the lot. Although they are still owned by the killpen , pulling these horses as fosters, allows us to give them a better chance of surviving long enough to be adopted. Their prices are set by the owner of the feedlot, and all purchases go straight to him. Quarantine & care provided by us, is an additional fee, but we often waive or reduce the costs in order to see them into good homes. References & sale with buyback clause required.

     BelAir**Black Overo TWH Gelding,  15.2hh, 12-14 yrs old, gaited, $800.00 plus quarantine ($10/day). We got  this gorgeous boy in as a foster (see below). He is still currently in  qt, but we had the opportunity to ride him, and he did beautifully. If  what you are looking for is a luxury trail horse that will go the trails  and cruise along, BelAir (like the car he's named for) is definitely  your guy. Smooth & naturally gaited, he was effortless. He is thin,  needs TLC and groceries, but he is going to be a strikingly good  good-looking guy.   Blaze faced, unique markings on his legs and body typical of the overo  influence. Nice ground manners, tacked right up and rode amazingly.  Whether you take him home today or wait til he is done with qt, he is  definitely a classic, will be an exceptional trail horse. He gets along  with other horses, has a fairly "been there done that" kind of attitude  also.
     UTD Coggins, but he still needs her vaccines, adoptive owner can make  arrangements to have him vetted prior to taking him home.  Meet&greets are welcome, as we strive for a good match & "Right  Fit". For more pictures, vids & information on BelAir & our  other rescues, please check out our website listed below in the contact  us/more info form.

 Ashkii*Bay Appaloosa Gelding, Senior 20 yrs  old, 14.2hh, $1350.00. This versatile gelding has gorgeous loud color  and spots, a sweet face, is gentle & calm, level headed & sound.  His name is Navajo for "Boy", and this guy is certainly typically  gelding. Trail horse, husband type, follower, rides adv. beginner, just  back from 14 day refresher in professional training. He goes best in a  simple full cheek snaffle, and will ride either English or Western.  Sound & sane, no vices that we have seen, no kick, bite, rear,  bolt, or buck.

She is the  perfect size for in-betweeners. Great little trail mare, she has a big  stride. Has a slight ear fungus, so her ears are sensitive,but can be  handled, treatment is simple. She is also adorable, with those  standardbred sized ears!!
