A DAY IN THE LIFE.... A typical day means your horse will be hanging out with their best friends. We believe older horses do best in small numbers and every effort is made to ensure a compatible mix of personalities. The last thing any horse needs is to be chased around by the pasture bully. Full time access to roughage via pasture or hay is ideal for keeping them happy. Contentment reduces anxiety and digestive disorders. Picture your horse standing head to tail napping under the many shade trees each pasture has to offer. Loafing sheds provide shelter when weather dictates. Feed times for supplements or meds are designed to meet the needs of each individual horse. Other aspects of your horses day can be detailed to meet the desires of each horse's owner. Individual box stalls, extra grooming, or even hand walking on the trails in the woods, can be arranged. Horse treats, carrots and apples are a part of every retiree's life here on the farm.

Goldie and Nanette
"Black Gold" (Goldie) aka.....I am pretty and I know it.............imported from Germany, Hanoverian mare by Wolkenstein II. Goldie had a very successful developing horse career in Canada ridden by her then owner Lee Tubman (USDF Judge) through 2nd level with her scores in the 70's. When purchased in 2010 by her present owner, Nanette Love, Goldie was schooling Prix St. George. Goldie showed her most promise with easy beautiful changes, with the talent to do ones at the age of seven. Incredibly athletic, she had the true quality to become a lovely Grand Prix partner. However, in 2011 she was sidelined with a right suspensory injury after jumping out of her paddock. After several months of recovery, Goldie was sent to be trained by international rider and USDF president, George Williams. Goldie had two successful winters in Wellington, Florida, But as the training increased her old injury seemed to return. After an MRI, it was discovered that our beautiful Goldie, "horse of my dreams", had a deep digital tendon injury. Again, not giving up we gave her a year to heal, but after a month in Florida, her injury was evident again. I was heartbroken and still am, but Goldie and I have been very blessed to find Weber's Retired Horses. Owner's Rob and Kim have been so patient with helping Goldie adjust to becoming just a horse and being part of a herd. Thank you, Kim, Rob, and Bob.
