Jake

  • Percheron Gelding
  • 18 hands
  • Black with a white star on his forehead
Jake might have a reputation for being slow, but he just likes to take his time showing off how beautiful he is. He has long legs, thick muscles, and the prettiest arched neck you can imagine on a draft horse. He is a romantic horse and prefers only to pull private carriages in the evenings. One look into his big brown eyes and he will steal your heart!

Felix

  • Percheron Gelding
  • 17 Hands
  • Solid Black

Felix is the fastest horse in our herd, with the longest legs, and he is always in a hurry to get wherever he is going. He is also one of the sweetest horses you will ever meet, but you do have to remind him it is okay to slow down! He has the longest forelock of all the horses and his one pet peeve is having it brushed and he holds his head out of reach if a driver comes anywhere near it.

Pepper

  • Percheron Gelding
  • 17 Hands
  • Dapple Gray that is nearly white!
Pepper likes to pretend that he woke up on the wrong side of the bed when you first greet him, but if you tell him how beautiful he is and give him a little love, he will perk right up and change his attitude. He is a creature of habit and when there are detours in the city, he will stop and turn his head around and to look at his driver with a confused face. He has a silly habit of putting his face down and pretending he is drinking at the water bucket long after he has stopped so he can have a longer break.

Abel

  • Percheron – Morgan Cross
  • 16 Hands
  • Black with a White Foot!

Abel is the smallest horse we have, but that doesn’t mean he isn’t full of personality. His favorite thing in the world is to have his neck scratched, and if you aren’t going to do so he will find a fence post and scratch it himself. He also loves sweets, especially peppermints, so he has exceptionally fresh breath for a horse. He has one white sock on his back leg, which is the most white any of our dark horses have on their coat.

Kate

  • Chestnut Percheron Mare
  • 17 hands
  • Chestnut Red, Blonde Mane

 

Kate is our feisty redhead. As the only mare in our herd, she has to hold her own with the boys! She can be a little aloof when you try to pet her, but she always loves when you scratch her neck! 

George

  • Percheron Gelding
  • 16.5 Hands
  • All Dark Brown

George is the new kid on the block! He is curious, energetic and super loving. He will sniff all over your body hoping to find peppermints and loves to be petted. He is a bit quicker than the other horses because he hasn’t learned to slow down to a Savannah pace yet!

Batman

  • Percheron Gelding
  • 17 Hands
  • Black with white star on his forehead

Batman prefers to work in the low light of our evening shift. He grows the thickest winter coat out of all the horses and so he needs a haircut every spring! He prefers to spend his free time out in the paddock.

Salt

  • Percheron Gelding
  • 18 Hands
  • Dapple Gray

Salt is the mischief maker in the barn, and has been known to play tricks on the drivers! Sometimes he even sneaks out of his stall and trots off to the hay stack, especially if he thinks he might be getting a bath. Salt’s favorite thing to do is roll in mud and it is rare that a day goes by where he doesn’t need a good scrubbing before work. He loves treats but be careful! He will sometimes put your whole hand in his mouth, along with the snack.

Theodore AKA “Teddy”

  • Percheron Gelding
  • 16.5 Hands
  • Red Belgian with White on his hooves!
Teddy is aptly named because he truly is a teddy bear. He loves to rub his face on you because sometimes it gets itchy, and will subsequently get lots of slobber and gunk on your clothes! He is one of our sweetest horses and loves all the attention he gets out on the street.
