Sullivan is a 7 year old, crossbred gelding. He is approximately 15.2 hands. He rides and drives and is currently being used in our lesson program. Great on trails. Just starting crossrails this fall. He is very sensible, crossties, stands for farrier, walks through water. Photo coming!
Cannoli is a Welsh dark buckskin 3 y.o. (May 2020) gelding proudly offered for sale. Dam is Tiramisu (Welsh), sire is Better Than Gold (Welsh x TB). He should mature to be a larger medium/smaller large. Cannoli shows lovely movement and has a spunky, but sweet personality. He is as cute as a button!! Cannoli has beautiful, flashy coloring and if he is anything like his mom, he will dapple out like crazy! No vices. Ties, stands for farrier, handles well, loads on trailer, has rope halter experience, worked in a round pen, ground driven, and lightly ridden WTC alone and in company. We believe Cannoli will have potential to be competitive at horse shows with training. Due to age, Cannoli would do best in a professional program with an experienced teen or AA to start. What a promising boy that will be a great project for someone!!! Up to date on shots.
Adorable! Calvin is a QH/Morgan/Clyde cross. This 15.2, six year old gelding rides and drives. Fun, big bodied and sweet. Working on refining his ring work. Fantastic attitude. Trail rides.

“VIP” is a 4 year-old, 15.3hh black and white APHA gelding proudly offered for sale. He is a barn favorite. What a cool, levelheaded boy! VIP WTC and trail rides english and western. He can lead on the trail or go last – nothing phases him! Safe enough for children, your husband, or even a beginner friend who just wants to have a pleasant ride! Neck reins and knows his lateral work. Used in a Regional IHSA (college) show for lower level flat classes and was unfazed with wings for his halloween costume with a junior rider. VIP has an in-your-pocket personality and is a real sweetheart. He rides well in a group as well as solo. No vices. Stands for farrier, vet, bathing. Loads on trailer. Gets along well with other horses. Greets and follows you in the field or paddock. This is a rare young horse that deserves his own person!!! Up to date on shots.
FOR SALE: Shortcake – 2019 gelding. Sensible BLF bred and raised 4 year-old 3/4 Welsh pony. Sire, Better Than Gold and Dam, our sweet Tiramisu. Smart and learns quickly. We have made sure to start him under saddle appropriately in July of 2022. Shortcake currently WTC alone or in company. Started jumping and doing small courses. Levelheaded and confident to ride. He has been ridden on short trails, in the indoor and outdoor rings and even used in our lesson program with more intermediate and advanced riders. He has both leads, and no vices. Shortcake lunges, free schools, ties, walks through water, stands for farrier, easy to clip and has rope halter handling experience. He is very brave and laid back, yet has a sweet and goofy personality. We really love this pony! We believe Shortcake will have potential to be competitive at horse shows with training, but could also handle life as a lesson, trail, or ranch pony. Beautiful barefoot feet and keeps a neat stall. Doesn’t mind the crowd, loves attention. Shortcake has a stockier build like his mom and his half brother, Dolcemonte. Both half brothers from same dam are cute jumpers. Due to his young age, Shortcake would do best in a professional program with a teen or AA to start. Great opportunity to finish a promising, young pony!!! Up to date on shots.
