Duke

Haflinger

2015 Horse of the Year

Duke is a draft "pony"; Haflingers are called ponies even though they can be horse-sized. Because he is a draft horse, he can carry heavier riders and since he is shorter than most draft horses, he is the perfect height to use for wheelchair mount riders. 
Duke was donated by Candy Shoaff in 2013.

Willy looks and acts like a mini Lyle. He is fun to work with and our kids use him for ground work. Willy loves attention and came to us because he is too easy of a keeper for his own good!

The Dude

The Big Lebowski

2013 Gypsy Vanner Horse

The Dude was donated by the Lexlin Gypsy Horse Ranch in September, 2015. He is a stocky boy who lives with his best friend, Duke. Gypsy Vanners are a draft horse breed and The Dude's build is typical of his breed.  The Dude is able to carry some of our larger riders but also is ridden by our smaller riders.
