I am somewhat new to horses - I used to ride when I was a teen but have never owned any until the last year.
Bobby - paint gelding I adopted from the KY Equine Humane Center in Lexington, KY. He's 7 years old, sweet, gentle, and blind. In his former life he was a teaser stallion on a nurse mare farm. In his new life he's a pampered and adored member of the family. One of those horses that gets into the heart of everyone he meets.
Trigger - gelding pony that lives for mischief (what pony doesn't?) - based on some of his past exploits, I'm pretty sure he was a cat burglar in a former life. He's a beautiful dark gray dapple with a "Tina Turner style" flaxen mane and tail. He's my sons pony, and is hopelessly in love with my thoroughbred mare, Gitana.
Gitana - 16 year old Thoroughbred mare that joined our family last week. She's been retired from playing polo and will enjoy life henceforward puttering about our farm with me as a pleasure horse.
Sarge - mid 20's quarter horse gelding that will be joining our family next week. He's a retired Cincinatti Mounted Police Horse and will be living out his golden years with us immersed in comfort and showered with affection. I think he'll be a grand companion to Bobby and a nice, slow, dependable horse for my son to climb on from time to time.
