Trained Horses For Adoption

Casper is a coming two-year old who came off the Navajo Nation. Gelded and very calm. Link here

Cuddles is a six year old mare from the Jarita Mesa Herd which is managed by the USFS. She is a little spooky most of the time. Link here

Gabrielle was estimated to be a yearling by the vet when she was captured, but we think she is two. She is a super calm fat pony and is a pair with Xena. Link here

La Llorona is a unicorn-like cremello. Arthritis in her hind left pastern may limit her ability to be a riding horse. Link here

Lefty is six and from the Jarita Mesa Herd. He was adopted for 3 years and returned when his adopter died. Link here

Leonardo comes from the Silver King HMA in Nevada. We estimate his age at eight or nine. He considers himself quite studly. Link here

Tango is probably six. She was captured in central New Mexico at Budigers. She looks like an Arabian. Link here

Artemis roamed as a feral horse for many years. She was finally rounded up south of Gallup, New Mexico. She would make a good companion horse. She is probably about 12 years old. Link here

Xena was captured in the summer of 2017 from the Jicarilla Ranger District. She is matched with Gabrielle to make a tiny draft team. Xena may be in foal. Link here

Valoroso is a gelding who wandered off the Navajo Nation to steal hay at the flea market. Very nice conformation! Big! Link here

Trained Burros for Adoption

Bisbee is a shy young jenny. She was returned from a home with horses that scared her. Link Here

Jerome is an older gelding that taught us something about Donkey Training. If you scratch a donkey in all it's favorite places, it will let you do most anything. This guy loves to be loved. Link Here

We will be bringing in new burros in February. Contact John Irick at 505-419-9754 to reserve a burro for next year.
