image0 4IMG 1338
 
Ginger is a lovely little mare who is an absolute joy to work around. 
She last raced on October 21,2020 at Fraser downs after 83 starts and $90,000 earned!

Ginger Beer is the perfect little package.  Standing at around 15hh, Ginger is a great size. 
Ginger retired sound, since entering our program she's had some well deserved rest & relaxation. 
Ginger initially came in with some overall body soreness but in only a couple of body work sessions, Kaiti from Free To Be Equine Services
has helped make Ginger feel like a million bucks. 
Ginger has been out with a herd and has even made friends with a mini.
This girl is AMAZING to handle- a child can lead her! She's very well mannered and respectful towards her human friends.   
When standing in the cross ties Ginger is the perfect girl to fuss over, she does not move at all.  Great for the farrier, easy to do anything with.  She has no vices.  
She's ready to get started your way.  So much potential as a kids horse, a show pony, a solid trail mount....the possibilities are endless!  She's a real gem!
Up to date on vaccines, deworming, teeth and feet.
 
Ginger is located at our foster farm in Mission, BC

 image1 2ginmakesmesinride

Ginny retired from racing after 74 starts, earning just over $25,000- her last start was November 27, 2020. 
Ginny just wasn’t quite fast enough to cut it as a race horse.

Her owner graciously retired her sound so she can move on to pursue a new career as a riding horse. 
Ginny is a goofy mare with several personalities, from happy, friendly, cuddly, to a stone faced mare stare. This girl will never be called dull or boring!  
Ginny has been handled extensively during her race career. She crossties, stands perfectly for the farrier & vet. She trailers great and is easy to bath. 
Ginny is adapting well to being in a herd. She is a beautiful dark bay looking to get started your way. 

Ginny is located at our foster farm in Mission, BC
Her adoption fee is $850

Standing at around 16.1hh, Zena is a show stopper. She is big boned and still growing.  
Zena is an in your pocket type of horse.  She is very curious and friendly and loves being fussed over. 
Zena is fitting in great when she has been allowed field time with 3 other mares.  She's playful and loves her new horse friends.  
She leads well, stands for the farrier, great manners in the cross ties.  Not at all spooky.  
This girl will be a very easy and rewarding project!  
 
Zena was born with a conformation flaw in both of her hocks, she is sound and they don't seem to bother her movement.
It has been recommended that her next career be as a trail/ pleasure horse/light flat work.  
You don't find many horses with a solid mind and temperament like Zena- and she's only 4!!

She will be UTD on vaccines, deworming, hoofcare and teeth prior to adoption.

 

Zena is located at our foster farm in Mission, BC

Floyd is a young, tall gelding full to the brim with life and spunk. 
This 3 year old boy is 16.1hh and will likely mature to 16.2hh. 
Floyd never raced and didn’t spend much time at the race track.   
Floyd would do best with an experienced person, or someone wanting to work with a trainer. 
So much potential with this handsome boy!

Floyd is located at our foster farm in Mission, BC
His adoption fee is $850


 Shalynn
3 year old Standardbred mare  ~15 hh

shalynn 

Shalynn is a 3 year old mare standing at 15hh. Very sweet, social and friendly girl. 

Lots of spunk but still respectful to her handler. She’s had about 7 months training in ground driving and in the race cart.
Turns out she doesn’t want to be a race horse and is looking for a new career! 
She will need training under saddle but she has tons & tons of potential. 
Great with a herd!! Loves her mare friends.  Really nice temperament with this girl!

Shalynn is located at our foster farm in Mission, BC
Her adoption fee is $850
 

 Healthyandwealthy (Pharoah)
16 year old Standardbred gelding  ~15.3 hh

pharoah

HEALTHYANDWEALTHY (AKA “Pharaoh”), a 16 year old gelding, has joined the program to find himself a home where he can truly hang up his halter and call it his own.
Here’s what we know about this handsome guy! Pharaoh was sold as a yearling for $27,000 in Ontario. He was named “Red Star Smiley” after the purchase but after he was sold again as a youngster, his registered name was changed to “Healthyandwealthy”. He raced 46 times with 11 wins, and $44,000 earned. He paced around the limestone oval his final time in 2010.

We don’t really know about and can’t really speak to the years of his life between his last race and 2017, when he was seized by the BCSPCA emaciated and lice infested. He recovered and eventually found a new passion and a home helping be a comforting presence to those struggling with addiction at a treatment facility.
Unfortunately, the facility he had called home most recently had to close its doors and reached out to us to take him in. We didn’t hesitate to take on such an gentle and kind soul and we know he won’t be with us for long- he is worth his weight in gold!

Pharaoh has had a handful of rides (that we know of) under his belt, but it has been a while.
