BIT OF HOPE

“Bit” is a sorrel and white pinto miniature horse.

He was born in 2003 and is 30 inches tall. He has several special needs, including a severe overbite that makes it difficult for him to bite. The most prominent of these special needs is poor vision, thus giving him very poor balance. If he gets scared or excited, he tends to get knocked off balance.

Bit loves to be groomed but may lose his balance when picking out his hooves. He is an excellent example to relate to God’s love and purpose for each of us, despite our physical flaws.

BANNER

Banner is a Bay Tobiano Paint horse. He was born in 2001 and is 16 hands tall. Previously he was used for cutting and reigning. He is very gentle, sweet and loves to bond with people. He was donated in the summer of 2022 by Betty Thomas

He had not been cared for properly earlier in his life but has had some professional training. He is a very calm, laid-back horse who is eager to greet almost everyone. Chance is still getting acclimated to the ranch, and we are learning more about his personality. He was donated by Jill Glass

CHESTER

Chester is a grey/roan burro gelding born in 2003. He has no markings other than a small star on his forehead and he is 11.1 hands tall. Chester is our official greeter. His big ears and sweet personality make him a favorite of all. Don’t let him fool you though, he can be very stubborn and strong-willed. He loves to be groomed and loved on.

KNOX

Knox is a Miniature Shetland gelding born on June 24, 2008.  He is 40 inches tall who was trained by the Amish to pull a cart.  He came from a very loving and caring home who loved him dearly but due to a busy household with young kids he needed more attention.  Knox has Cushing’s disease and is insulin resistant, so he needs special medication, a strict diet and a lot of exercise.  He can be a little scared at first but once he knows he can trust you he will do anything for you.

LYNX

Lynx is a 5-year-old Rocky Mountain gelding, with beautiful hair. He was in the process of being trained to go on long trail rides through the mountains of Tennessee, but after an accident where he received a dog bite wound, Lynx needed a home where he would not have to work so hard. We are still learning more about him, as he is in the process of training to be a therapy horse at the Ranch.

POCAHONTAS

Pocahontas is a Halflinger Paint horse born in 2003. She is 15 hands tall, and has the nickname "Pokey". She loves food but is insulin resistant, so we watch her diet carefully. Pocahontas is friendly, willing to participate in equine assisted learning, and a little quirky. Pocahontas came to the Ranch in the summer of 2022 and was donated by Betty Thomas.

TANNA.jpeg

TANNA

Tanna is a 15.1 hand chestnut quarter horse mare born in 2003. She has a star, stripe, and snip on her face and socks on both of her left legs. Tanna loves being groomed and loves attention.  She has arthritis in her hind legs. The exercise the children give her helps her with that.  You will notice a strap around her neck. This is because she cribs, it helps her from cribbing. What a great example of how even though she struggles with that she is gifted in so many other areas.

TEXAS

Texas is a Bay Quarter Horse born in April of 2004. He has a bright strip, snip on his face, one sock and a white dot on each of his hips. He stands 15.2 hands high. Texas came to the Ranch the fall of 2022 from a family that loved to trail ride. Texas is very friendly and curious. He is often the first to greet you in the pasture.

TINY

Tiny is 12 hands and is a bay part Arabian part Welsh pony, born in 1990. Tiny has suffered from abuse and neglect in his past and he bears those scars.  Tiny is not a very patient pony and can be stubborn at times but has a heart of gold. He is a good example for kids to see how that can be frustrating at times and how it can relate to their personal lives.
