Our Tack Models
First meet (Miss Lazy) Lexi, an 04 Branded Mustang Mare. This girl was a feed lot find that was hours away from being shipped to slaughter that day. Purchased in Early August of 2017 she came into our lives after losing another horse that was part of our family for over 14 years. She had very big hoof prints to fill and did it beautifully and helped fill a hole we feared would never heal. She came with her title and a note and in it described the most terrifying, unruly horse and almost sealed her fate if we had not taken a chance. Thank goodness we did!
Our second and newest addition is Murphy, a 1998 Paint/Draft/Standardbred Gelding that we our long term fostering for our local SPCA, we took him on in late March 2021. Before us he was emaciated and surrendered a couple times really to no fault of his own. First time because of cost, and second being lack of knowledge. He has still not gained back the proper fat and muscle that he needs and is still in need of a lot of groceries and time as he came to us head shy, but we are working on getting him to connect with us and to relax and realize he is in a safe place now. He will be modeling our tack later this year.
