Pair of yearling ponies. Mothers are approximately 13.2 - Sire was QH(unknown)

Charlie and Thomas will be making their way this April 2018. Born and raised together.

Both mares were rescued from a bad situation. Looking to settle them in. Colt will need to be gelded. Both easy to work with and have a long life ahead of them. 

Would like to see them go to a home together as a pair of cart ponies.

UPDATE : Thomas has been gelded June 2018 and recovering- will be on pasture until end of summer/fall or until adopted together.

“Gismo” is an approx. 18 or 19 years old Clydesdale-Appaloosa-Mix. Gismo is approx. 16 hands .He was found by
another horseman in fall 2011 on a foodless “pasture”, no shelter and being skin and
bones only. He was accompanied by another horse in the same condition. He bought both horses and
brought them back to life over the winter. Following spring he put them on the internet for sale and we
bought “Gismo”.
He is a horse one can only dream of: attached, friendly, very well to be ridden, healthy, a sort of a gentle
bully with the other horse.  Presently located in Kent County. 

Owner needs to return to Germany and cannot take horses with him. A good home a must. This boy is gentle giant and is very polite  kind smart.

“Cheyenne” +/- 20 years old, the gelding, as well as “Hailey”, the daughter suffer from laminitis since summer 2012. Cheyenne is approx. 14 hands.At times it was hell, but by keeping them away from fresh grass and
administer occasionally an affordable medication (Buzone Conc.) for a couple of days,
makes them going without much pain. Both handle this medication without any side effects.

“Holly”, the mare, is free from laminitis, but has a hip problem, which only shows when
one is working the hind hooves (hoof trimming): she can't lift those legs much. Otherwise she's a happy
saddle pony without any other health issues. The doesn't need any almost human
behaviour. Holly is approx. 14 hands. Very stout and solid. To part from him will be the hardest to me.

All 3 ponies can't be ridden, but are friendly and patient with everybody. Kids can groom them endless.
They're used to dogs, cats and “Hamlet”, the sheep ram. The way I see it, they would fit very good in a
petting zoo or as “cool down buddies” to hyper horses. But because they're together for almost all of their
lives, it would be a horrendous thing to separate them.

The ram was born in early July 2012, a day later abondened by its mother and got lost in cold, rainy
wheather on a nearby hobby farm. Found a day later with a terrible
pneumonia and malnourished, that hobby farmer did not know what to do with the lamb and brought it to
me, knowing that I'm very much in animals. I took the little one in, had it treated by a veterinarian (what
blew my almost non-existent budget even more into tatters), kept it in my house until the following spring,
bottle-fed the lamb 4 x a day, and my female dog adopted the lamb and treated it like a puppy (see encl. pictures). He does not require sheering. Just regular brushing which he loves.
Consequently the full size ram now believes he's a dog and partly he behaves this way
now. He is not just tame, he's friendly. After 9 months I took him out to the barn and since he lives there
with the horses, of which the pony gelding is his best friend now. Hamlet is friendly with everyone and everything. He goes easily along with my cats, dogs and horses. He will turn six this june. At the age of 2 I boarded him with the neighbour farmers sheep over the winter, and he went easily along with them, but didn't show any interest in the ewes. He doesn't show any agression torwards humans, after I told him some lessons during his adolescence. Since, no incident happened and he likes to be pet from head to tail.
