Boomer is a playful little fella who (like many mini horses) suffers from some health problems due to being bred to such a small size. But, with his best friend Lollipop by his side, Boomer gained weight and confidence ,and is an energetic youngster now.
American Cream Draft/Appaloosa
Micky is a "gentle giant" draft horse with a long history as lesson barn favorite. He is also special because he was a foal rescued from a Premarin farm! He wears that fly mask as his sunglasses to protect his eyes from the sun.
Squirt is a strawberry roan Welsh Pony and came to the Sanctuary with his mother, Dory. He is the youngest horse at the Sanctuary and is playful and wild. Like his mother, Squirt is also partially blind.
Cash is from Tolland, CT. He had never lived with other horses before he came to the Sanctuary, so when he first arrived he lived with the goats. He is very calm natured and now enjoys living with the other minis.
Sunny is a former work horse and lesson pony who could no longer be ridden due to a hoof problem. He is a stunning, sturdy, and super-sweet boy who loves to run around his paddock and nuzzle up next to his many admirers.
Dory is a Welsh Pony who was rescued with her son, Squirt. She was completely blind in her left eye and is enjoying her retirement at the Sanctuary. She loves baths, walks, and meeting visitors.
Lollipop is a little pinto who came to the sanctuary with her BFF Boomer. She is only 27 inches tall, but that doesn’t stop her from taking charge! Snacking used to be her main passion, but we’re working on helping her expand her horizons.
Ripley is a young pony, with plenty of playfulness. He likes to tussle and play with Squirt, who is about his age. When he was first rescued, he was to be adopted out to a safe home, but his genetic orthopedic issues make it a great thing for him to have found sanctuary.
Sweetie came from a riding lesson barn. She has since retired after many years of teaching children to ride but still loves visitors. We definitely pamper her, since she is a senior.
