She is best suited for an intermediate horseman and rider. She is currently used in our lesson program. She does not like a heavy hand. She works best in a bosel or hackamore. We suspect she was a speed horse as she makes tight turns and knows some patterns. We believe Eclipse came from an unkind background, she does have some scars. She is good for vet/farrier, trailers fine, stands on cross ties. She is currently barefoot and sound.
Happy (Available for Adoption)
Happy is beautiful appaloosa gelding foaled in 2006. He is 15.2 hh and currently used in M&M Acres' lesson program, with emphasis on collection and lateral work. Happy is best paired with an intermediate rider, as he is forward moving and very enthusiastic about the work he does. This horse is good on trail, he is good with loading, hauling, and bathing, and he stands for the farrier and the vet. Happy has been sound and barefoot for his entire stay at M&M Acres, since the day he was rescued from a kill pen in Oklahoma. In his turnout herd, he is neither the most dominant nor the most submissive horse. This guy's only real vice is his cribbing, but it has been effectively stopped with the use of a cribbing collar.
Renegade (available for adoption)
I am a 15.2 hh American Paint Horse, foaled in 2000. I sustained a severe injury to my left shoulder that wasn't healed properly. I have no muscle mass in my shoulder so I am not rideable. The vet says sometimes I may not have feeling in that leg. This was difficult for me because I love feeling important and having a job. When groups of people come here, they learn to groom with me. I help to teach them about parts of the horse. I just love the attention and love the children.
When I came to M&M I had a growth on my left eye. The vet said it was cancer. I went on a ride to the University of Illinois where I had the growth removed and stayed a few nights. I am so grateful to the people that helped raise money so I could have the cancer removed before it got worse. The vet said it was squamous cell carcinoma, which is common in horses with white faces. As long as I wear a mask to keep the UVA/B rays off my face, it's not likely for the cancer to come back.
I would really love a family of my own, especially if they have children. I get along well with most horses. I promise I stand nicely for the vet, carrier and chiropractor. And just look how handsome I am!
