Tater Trot started as a boarder and we quickly fell in love with her
so much that her owner wanted her to have a permanent place here on our farm. So when given the chance, we made her ours! She is a miniature pony, standing just 34 inches tall, her blue eyes and adorable pink nose is what stole our hearts. She loves the kids and they love her equally!
Storm is our miniature yearling, he is 28 inches tall and there’s a lot of personality in his little body. He spends his time relaxing and looking cute! When he matures he will join Tater Trot and be apart of our riding program for the littles.
How adorable is he?!

Ocala is an off the track
Thoroughbred who is the newest member of the herd. He was born on March 7, 2019 and shares a birthday with Mr. Roger, one of the many reasons we knew he needed to be on our farm. He was meant to be around kids and loves their attention. This young man has so much ahead of him!
Meet Lexington! She was rescued in 2018. Lexi started out very timid and had no trust in humans. We have spent many hours over the years building a strong bond with her. We are very proud of all of her accomplishments and are grateful to have given her a second chance.

She is one of those horses who is truly a companion, she will follow you wherever you go and is incredibly loyal to her caregivers. Dakota hosts all of our special needs programs where she displays just how kind she really is. We feel so lucky to have found her and given her a second chance.
Meet Raisin! She is a Shetland pony but don't be fooled by her size because she calls the shots around here. Raisin will treat a beginner to a pony ride or teach a more advanced rider a thing or two about how to ride out a canter or even take them over fences. Don't be alarmed when you see Raisin laying down in her field, she spends most of her spare time relaxing under "her" tree. She is a wonderful pony and we feel lucky that we have been loving her for the last 16 years!
