Comet came in skinny and lacking basic overall good health. They have struggled to adjust to their new life here, although I think they enjoy being friends with lots of horses. Comet was run on the track and had a back injury so he is not meant to be ridden. We don’t know what his pedigree name is, but we will soon have time to decipher his tattoo and check that out.

Catalyst is two years old and she has already had a life. We rescued her at three weeks old, scooping her up, putting her in the back seat of the truck and heading straight for Virginia Tech Vet hospital. She spent ten days there fighting pneumonia and other viruses. She was skin and bones but a real fighter.

Rayn is a big question mark at the barn. She is a strawberry roan who is no longer skinny, the bites are healed and the rain rot gone. But we keep waiting for a huge growth spurt. Follow Rayn’s progress and when we have a better idea of what we are going to have with her, she will go up for adoption.

Chester is a three year old black and white miniature horse. He came to us because he had stringhalt in both back legs. He had a bad limp that made us all think of Chester from the TV show Gunsmoke, hence his name. But the name isn't as fitting now. Changing his nutrition and exercise has eliminated the stringhalt almost completely and he now walks with no noticeable catch.
