“Do you give the horse its strength or clothe its neck with a flowing mane? Do you make it leap like a locust, striking terror with its proud snorting? It paws fiercely, rejoicing in its strength, and charges into the fray. It laughs at fear, afraid of nothing; it does not shy away from the sword." Job 39: 19 -22
Meet Our Horses...
My full name is "In a Moment's Notice" but by barn name is "Baby" or "Bae". Believe it or not, I'm actually a registered Paint/Pinto horse. My markings seemed to have faded as I grew older, and now I'm a beautiful, and bright shade of gray. I have a very sweet disposition, and I'm willing to be your friend. I'm the lowest in rank in our herd, so sometimes I get picked on. Our leader, Gunner takes very good care of me though. I am quiet, and gentle, and I will take excellent care of my rider. Sometimes I can be a bit nervous, but as long as you're brave for me, we can conquer anything together!

Being the curious horse I am, I sometimes get into trouble. My excuse is, "Juice taught it to me!".
I like to be the boss and want to be the herd leader. Since I want to be in charge, I try to be the boss
of both 4-legged and 2-legged critters. I should be ridden by experienced riders as I sometime toss
a bump (or buck) into my canter and like to be bossy to my rider. I am still a bit of a chicken at heart, but I trust people and will listen (you just have to speak a little louder sometimes). Something you may not know about me is, even though I look like a faded out Buckskin, I am actually a very rare color called Amber Champange which also gave me my uniquely colored eyes!

I was born in Canada, then brought to Oxford, MA before I left for my long term home in Georgia.
I was there for 12 years before I got sick and had to come back to the north to get well. I miss my old home so it makes me nervous and a bit scared. I like my new home, and am starting to relax and understand the ways of the north again. I tend to be bossy over the 'two-legged' critters around me, so you had better be firm with me. I stress out when paddock buddies are not with me. I have flowing gaits but I am very, very fast! Someday I will be able to carry everyone, but right now, I need an experienced confident rider to help me keep my feet flat on the ground. I am smart and get bored easy. When I shake my head and kick my girth, it means I need a job to do.

"The leader, I am!" Meet my wonderful self. My full name is "Gunner Steel", but you can just call me Gunner. I am a gentleman on the ground, however, I sometimes have 'temper tantrums' while being ridden. Just ignore them and continue on. It just means I did not get my way as I sometimes get overly excited about fun things and get a little carried away with myself. You must make me think and keep things interesting as the little day to day riding routines bore my magnificent brain. Sometimes I might seem grumpy on the ground, but it's because I expect the same level of respect from you as the other horses give me. Being touched isn't my favorite thing, so be sure to ask permission from me first, and try to keep from touching all over my pretty little face.

I am one of the smallest horses at Blessings Farm, which makes it easy for people to ride me. I am very gentle and love when people ride me. I am a great ride and pretty much get along with anyone. I am a bit shy, but you can make a great relationship with me! I don't like my face being touched, and I will often shy away from your hands, but I love rubs on my neck, and withers. Oh, and grapes are my favorite treat!
J.D. is for Jim Dandy, which is my full name.

You may think that Juice is a strange name, but it suits me perfectly! You see, when I was young, I used to test electric fences so see where I could push the fence down and get out. No matter how much “juice” they put in the fences, I would ignore the annoying zaps, and get out! Today, I still look for ways to escape the barn, just for fun. I’m the resident troublemaker, and yes, I do know how to open the stall doors. I’m extremely smart, and I am just as loving, so I am always willing to receive an affectionate scratch!

Hello everyone! My name is Juliett! You might notice that my coloring is similar to Biscut's, but just a bit darker. I am a Buckskin Quarter Horse. I hold the place of the tallest horse on the farm, but I am truly a gentle giant. Sometimes I forget that you need personal space, and I need to be reminded that my feet don't belong on top of yours. Be sure to keep your toes out of the way of my front feet, because they are shod! I love attention, and I am definitely a 'people' horse. My mom, Gabby, is so kind in sharing me with all of you. I adore having so many people to love on me!

I was the previous herd leader down here at Blessings Farm. I lost my position to Gunner when he arrived last year, so sometimes we don't really get along. Sometimes I’ll put the other horses in their places by pinning my ears back and maybe snapping my teeth, but I am really a sweetheart. I like getting scratched and being talked to, and I do my best to keep you on my back if you’re a beginner rider. I may look like a big muscular horse, but check out my face... am I cute or what?

Do you know what a Morab is? It’s a half-Morgan, half-Arabian breed of horse. These horses are great all around athletes, and I am one myself! You can see Arabian and Morgan features in my face. My full name is
Tanganieva. I am one of the sweetest horses on at Blessings Farm. I have problems with my back, so sometimes I may seem a little bit grumpy. But, if you handle me gently, I can be your very best friend!
