WE LOVE AND RESPECT OUR HORSES
There are 7 horses currently in the Horsefeathers program, all but two (which belong to the founding family) have been donated. When Horsefeathers accepts a horse, we take responsibility to care for it for life. All of the horses are at liberty in the pasture when they’re not working and are never stalled unless they’re being fed or waiting for a class. Our horses are an integral part to the operation of Horsefeathers, without them we could not help the students that come through our gates.
Breed: Quarter Horse
Aspen is the best lead class horse ever! We use her for back riding classes as well as lead classes. She can tell time – when 30 minutes have passed in the arena, she tries to stop in the center to let us know class time is up.
Color: Lineback Dun
Breed: Quarter Horse
Sundance is leased to us from Carl Hall (founder) and she was born on the property before Horsefeathers existed. She’s a great confidence builder in that she’s low to the ground (13.2 hands) and very round which gives a great base to sit on. She loves apples and carrots but her favorite thing is baths and will even spray herself with the hose if she can get a hold of it.
Lancelot (AKA Dr. Wizard)
Lancelot is schooled in dressage and a great teacher to his students. He is our gentle giant since he’s over 16 hands tall. He loves sugar cubes and belly scratches.
Breed: Peruvian Paso
Isaiah is leased to us from Carl Hall (founder) and is still in training to become a therapy horse. He has a very narrow build, is short (13.2 hands) and his movement is smooth with quick action.
Zeevah is very willing and gentle. She can do either lead classes or independent classes. She’s dainty but tough and is the newest addition to our herd.
Breed: Quarter Horse/Morgan/Clydesdale cross
Peggy Sue was born here at Horsefeathers. She is in training to become a therapy horse and should be ready for classes this year. She’s very playful and very animated in her actions.
Breed: Mini Paint
Skeeter came to us after being rescued from being put down due to a really bad case of founder. He’s a great horse who surprised us all with his cheery little antics once his feet were fixed. He can only carry 70 pounds max (rider & tack) due to his size.
