Tic Tac (Paint Gelding) born April 9th 2003. Tic Tac has been with Pete since the day he was born ( Arabian Gelding). Tic Tac was previously broke to saddle but is considered green and has not been ridden in awhile.. TicTac learns fast but needs reassurance. Takes time to settle in a new environment when other horses are present. He has been worked under saddle while at MSA and did well. Works well in round pen - has been tacked and had a rider on at an assisted walk. Tacks up no problem. Was in our obstacle course with no hesitation or refusal. Tic Tac was in an animal communication clinic June 10th and worked with clicker training. Has been in round pen and is learning to give to space and respect that space with handler and is working on seperation from the herd and is improving everyday. Tic Tac is presently in a foster home and being worked lightly. TicTac needs to find a home before winter.

Safely arrived November 4th 2017 off site of Morning Star Acres. These little ones were destined for meat. A dealer called some great friends of Gisele Gariepy and they went to pick them up so they would not go. Tammy Sauder and her team assure all cared for and weight put on until they could make their long journey here with us. We are told mares are approximately 5-6 years old.. We are told they are both broke to saddle and broke to drive. Up to date with all care....Farrier has been done on all 4. Worming to follow... Little ones have been treated for shipping fever and are bouncing right back. Lively and full of energy and eating hay - grain and drinking water. Foals will need to remain with their mothers for another 4 weeks until they can be weaned together. Peanut is a light chestnut colored. Sweet temperament and very social. Her palomino filly Buttercup is sweet as a button and very friendly. We estimate she was born in August 2017. Melody is a black with white star mare.Sweet temperament and very social. Her black colt Merlin is sweet as a button and very friendly. We estimate he was born in July 2017. Fall de-worming will be done in the near future once they settle in a bit more. Presently available for viewing. Foals must remain with their mothers for another 4 weeks

**** Will also consider adoption to the right home ****
work done to her but not saddled yet she is to come here spring 2018 for further training to saddle

Here is her info owner is I'll and cannot care for her anymore they want a really good home for her

We don't have room right now
We're full and have to move our adoptions and can only keep a limited number this winter

Sure. Star is 12 years old. She is a QH/Morgan cross. Is liberty trained. Has ferrier visits as needed by Mike Falkins. Has yearly examination from her Vet Carl. is in excellent condition. Like children, to be groomed, hesitant, spooky with certain things.
She is calm when not in heat (then she can be a handful). She will follow me anywhere but not everyone. She is black with one left hind foot that is white. Straight legs, strong neck. Lateral bends with ease. Gives backend easily. Respects humans space. Can be land tied for long periods of time when needed.
Prefers to have a choice as to the weather. From an early age we have called her that choice as recommended by Carl, her vet. Makes for a healthier horse. He says.
