Sara adopted Harley from Misfit Toys Rescue Division in the spring of 2019.
He has been DNA tested to confirm he is a Saddlebred and we know he worked for the Amish for a spell but that's all we know for sure.
We believe Harley to be around 25 years young! He certainly doesn't act his age and is great at getting into mischief.
He is a ham, sweet and loves people. He has all the buttons that lead us to believe he was a show horse in his younger days and probably a darn good one!
His name is Harley because he has a big motor and sounds like a Harley revving its engine at feeding time.
If you ask him to go he immediately moves forward with a purpose. If you ask him to stop, sit back because he has amazing brakes! He feels like riding a big show horse and he is as honest as the day is long.
Buzz is a sweet Quarter Horse Gelding. He was born in 1998 and has done just about everything at AQHA, Tennessee Ranch Horse, Southern Stock Horse shows plus more!
He has won Champion and Reserve titles in Rail Class, Trail, Obstacle, Reining, Cutting, Sorting, Halter, Barrels, and Pole Bending. He can be roped off of and is a confident Header and Heeler. He has jumped 4' and can do all of the above without a bridle!
Buzz loves to be useful and will become sad and listless if he isn't working and helping out.
A few years back he took a bad kick to his hind end from another horse. His wonderful owner spent tons of time and money to help him recover. Due to scar tissue from the kick he has a lopsided gait now. Thousands of dollars in tests proved that he doesn't have any pain, he simply cannot move one leg as far forward as the other. For his physical and mental health multiple vets have stated that the best thing for him is to keep working. So he gives beginner lessons and enjoys falling asleep while being groomed.
Charlie is an American Saddlebred that was born in 2006. He was rescued by Misfit Toys Rescue in 2019. He was in rough shape and need lots of time to gain weight and get healthy.
He came to Foxwood in December of 2019. At that time he was standoffish, nervous and did not trust people. He has come a long way and is doing better with trusting people to do the right thing by him.
Charlie has beautiful gates and is a lovely ride. He wants you to have very light hands in his mouth so we only use him for our advanced riders that understand how to have a nice light contact.
His best friend is Truth. You will see them hanging out together in the pasture.
He is loved and adopted by Bailey. The video of Bailey being surprised by his adoption went viral on our Facebook page. It has been seen on 6 continents and almost half a million people!
Zip is a 2001 model American Quarter Horse.
Evie took riding lessons on him and then leased him over the course of a couple years. Then On Christmas Eve 2017 he was given to her.
Zip has done many things in his life. He started off as a reining horse, he has been a trail horse, taught lessons, camps, worked cows, jumped & dressage.
He is what we call a "good soldier" sweet, even tempered and up to do whatever you ask of him. He is great for beginners to learn to steer and post on but he can give you some get up and go if you want it.
Zip officially retired on August 27, 2021. He is still loved by our students and used for non-riding fun.
Tiger is an American Saddlebred born in 2000. He had a wonderful life as a 4-H horse and then pleasure horse doing lots of fun riding and ground work. When his owner went off to college she allowed us to take him on to use in our lesson program.
He is fancy and knows it! He enjoys working and showing off. Tiger has the best canter as it is a nice slow rocking chair.
Tiger and Marvin are best friends and are rarely seen separated in the pasture. You will find them grazing together or standing nose to tail swishing flies off each others faces.
Oakley is one of our most recent additions to the farm. According to the vet we are guessing him to be 15 years old. His DNA states he is a Morgan/Tennessee Walking Horse/Quarter Horse mix. But we think he is simply a spicy fireball. He is our smallest horse here but don't let that fool you! He is our most advanced horse with amazing snapping knees, hocks and a head that sits in your lap.
He is another that prefers a light contact on his mouth and really rides like a big show horse. Use your body and all your aids to steer and stop this little freight train.
He is a sweet little snuggle bug and loves loves loves all types of foods and treats!
You will regularly find him in the pasture with his feet and head in the water trough splashing and having fun!
Truth is a 13 year old American Saddlebred.
He was rescued from a horse auction when he was only 4 years old. At the time he was rescued he had never been given a chance to learn. His rescuers worked with him for a few years, although he still wasn’t perfect he was a lot better than before.
After 5 years of owning Truth his rescuers decided they needed to find a new home for Truth, that’s when Kayla came along and decided to adopt him. Kayla has had Truth since 2017. She took him to her home farm and continued his training. After 2 long years of training Truth became a trustworthy teacher for ANY age or level rider.
Truths favorite hobbies are trail riding, eating grass, rolling in every mud puddle he can find, drinking gatorade, and eating treats.
Marvin is our newest lesson horse. Our vet guesses him to be around 13 years old and his DNA says he is a Selle Francis/Holsteiner/Quarter Horse mix.
Marvin came through an auction a couple years ago and was purchased, fattened up and given to a great home. He is on loan for our lesson program and is quickly catching on to the program here.
He had a prior injury to his left eye and is blind in it. However, that does not stop him from being a sweet guy and bossing the herd around in the pasture.
He is super cute in western tack and we see a bright future for him as a Ranch horse and hunter.
