Red, 4-year-old Thoroughbred Retired Racehorse

After a few wins, Red had to retire from racing due to a bow tendon.  A bow tendon means a racing career is over, however, beginning another career such as a trail horse is definitely an option.  Red successfully went through the Warrior Ranch Foundation program with Equine Specialist Tony Simonetti.  With the assistance from our veteran, SSG James Allen Pennington, Red was retrained and repurposed and now living a happy life in Ohio :)

 

Warrior,  30-year-old Apaloosa-Percheron mix

Warrior stands at 16.1 hands and was thankfully rescued from a neglectful situation in 1995.  In May of 2003, Warrior found his true forever home with the Ford family.  Warrior has Natural Horsemanship under his girth and will be used during the Warrior Ranch Foundation program.   Veterans and First Responders will come to the barn, enjoy his antics while running in the pasture.  And lots of grooming will be done with him as the Warrior loves to roll in the mud. Warrior is a resident horse of the Warrior Ranch and is financially supported by his owners.

 

Midnight,  20-year old Shetland Pony

Midnight is an 8-hand rescued Shetland Pony.  Midnight is a great companion horse and though tiny, holds his own in the herd. Veterans and First Responders will get a kick out of this little spitfire. Midnight is a resident horse of the Warrior Ranch and is financially supported by his owners.

 

Danny Boy,  25-year old Chocolate Palamino Mini

Danny Boy is a 32-inch Chocolate Palamino Mini Horse. Danny was rescued from auction after a meat buyer bid on him.  Prior going to auction, Danny worked as a carnival attraction carousel pony where he spent the majority of his day walking in a circle again, again, again and again. He developed lungworm and could no longer work for the carnival so he was dumped at the auction. In 2012, Danny Boy found his forever home and is loving life. He may be small but Danny Boy has a big personality on social media. Danny Boy is a resident horse of the Warrior Ranch and is financially supported by his owners.
