Horses

Buck

Quarter Horse
Buck is an 11 year old gelding.  He is broke to ride but will require somone who is willing to work  past his stubborness while saddled. He would make an excellent trail horse. He has  good ground manners, loads, and is a fairly easy keeper.

Great Debate: buckskin, line back dun, or dun with zebra stripes? You decide!
Red

Quarter Horse
Red is about 9 years old. He is a gelding and is broke to ride.  He is bomb proof, has great ground manners, loads, and is an easy keeper.  He can be buddy and barn sour but with regular riding he would easily overcome this tendency.
Sawyer

Grade Horse
Sawyer is a three year old mare.  She has been ridden and did well under saddle but would be considered green broke as she lacks experience being ridden.  She is very friendly and sociable.  She is a chesnut with a flaxen mane and tail.  
Zan Bar 
 

Grade Horse
 
 Zan Bar is a five year old gelding.  We think he would be a great prospect for a kids horse.  He is close to about 14 hands. He has a great personality and is very friendly. He is NOT broke.  
Smokey Joe

Mustang
Smokey Joe is a 2 year old gelding and was born in captivity.  He is a sweetheart and adores people.  This boy will follow you around the pasture and loves to be scratched and petted, especially on his face!  He is not officially halter broke but has had a halter on and been led around several times with no issues. He loaded into a trailer for the first time within 15 minutes and while he was obviously very nervous, we were extremely pleased with his willingness to do what we asked of him.  He would make for a terrific family pet and once broke, an excellent kids horse.
Kissy

Appaloosa
Kissy is a 12 year old mare.  She is dead broke and a safe kids horse. She came to us in July of 2010 as an extremely underweight and malnourished horse. She lived with another family who brought her back to good health and returned her to us to be adopted out to a forever home. She still needs to put on some weight before being worked too hard.  
Kissy and Moon

 
 Moon
Grade Horse
 Moon is about four years old.  She has congenital deformities in her eyes causing partial blindness.  This girl is a very, very sweet and calm horse.  She has not been officially broke but has had some experience having kids ride her.  She will need a buddy when set out to pasture to boost her confidence while getting around.  The amazing part about this horse is that the faith she has in her fellow horses to get her around transfers straight over to her handler/rider the moment they lay their hand on her.  She has absolute trust in whoever is leading her and as long as that trust is not in vain, this horse would be amazing for a young person who has an understanding of safe versus unsafe situations.  She has become a farm favorite and while we love her, we are excited to find her the perfect, loving home.
Sierra

Paint
Sierra is about six years old.  She must go to an experienced rider/handler only.  She is very spirited and is green broke. She is a curious girl and will approach you in the pasture, especially if you have a treat. She is halter broke and will stand to be groomed when she is in a calm environment.  She will not be a good horse to have around kids as she is liable to get nervous and will need her space to move around.
Cheyenne

Quarter Horse
 Cheyenne is 24 years old.  We cannot say enough good things about this horse and she is most definitely another farm favorite.  We received Cheyenne extremely emaciated and with extreme rain rot covering her back.  She was so weak she fell while loading into the trailer.  Over the past year she has returned to full health and has regained her beautiful quarter horse conformation.  Cheyenne is a dead broke kids horse.  She neck reins, picks up when asked and slows down and stops when asked.  She has been ridden by all ages and experience levels, from young girls who have never ridden before (and rode Cheyenne by themselves!) to adults with years of experience.  She is a pleasure for ALL age levels.  Because of Cheyenne's past and how much she has overcome, she will only go to the perfect forever home who is willing to bring along her best gal pal Skinny Minnie.

Update: Cheyenne is pending adoption to the director of APEA!
 
Skinny Minnie

Paso Fino
 Skinny Minnie is about 20 years old.  She came to us starved and over the past four years, she has very slowly put weight back on.  She is one of very few animals who we truly believe knows was saved from certain death and is truly grateful to her rescuer, Neva, director of APEA.  In the four years since Skinny Minnie came to APEA, Cheyenne has been the only horse she has ever bonded with and for that reason, they will only go to a home where they will stay together.  Skinny Minnie does have some nervous tendencies and needs to be in a calm environment and with a calm, confident handler.
 
Dixie

Quarter Horse
Dixie is about 9 months old, we estimate her birth to be in July of 2010.  She came to us from an elderly couple who rescued her from a mud bog.  The couple cared for her very much and obviously spent a lot of time picking up her hooves, leading her on a lead rope and socializing with her.  She is a very, very sweet young girl and will follow you around wherever you go, lead rope or not.  She loves to be scratched and will snake nearly her whole body back and forth when you scratch anywhere on her neck or chest. Due to her poor living conditions prior to the couple rescuing her, her baby fur was extremely matted on her belly and had to be shaved.  The process was obviously painful and uncomfortable, but as soon as she realized she was being helped she stood perfectly still and allowed us to shave her entire belly.  For such a young horse in such an uncomfortable situation this was truly an amazing feat.  Dixie will only go to a home with people who have plenty of experience in raising young horses.  
Trixie

Paint
Trixie we estimate to be around 18 months old.  Like our baby Dixie, Trixie is a doll. She looks to people for protection and follows you around with nearly every turn you make.  Trixie's story is also an unfortunate story.  She was given to a family who did not own property that could facilitate a horse.  While the family did not want to give her up, they knew they could not provide for her in any way and so they surrendered her to the local animal countrol.  When we arrived on the property she was tied with a rope around her neck to a tree.  The 10 feet of slack she was given was along their driveway, which had very little (almost nothing) to graze on.  Trixie will only go to a home with people who have experience in raising young horses.
