Half Percheron and half Quarter horse Bob is the grounding force on our Equine Team. His steady presence and calm demeanour provide the rock solid basis of the barnyard. He may be massive but he is unflappable and you can always tell how relaxed he is by his bottom lip.
Diego is our charming and handsome gentleman who thinks he may be part dog! He loves hanging out with friends and getting pets. Just be forewarned... he likes to lick hands! I wonder if we taste good to him?
Cowboy comes to us all the way from Montana where he loved chasing cows, working hard, and living the Ranch life. His likes are rodeo and hanging with his herd. His dislikes are camping in the mountains and hunting.
Highlander is our flashy fellow who stands out in the crowd. With his two colored eyes and coat this Paint did NOT forget his patches. He is hard to miss and easy to like. Fun fact ... Highlander is allergic to hay! Imagine that a horse that is allergic to hay.
Canine Specialist/Fence Inspector
Bronx is the bounciest boy you will ever meet. He is a Bernese Mountain Dog and Border Collie Cross. Maybe it is all those B's in his breeding that give him his bounce. He loves hanging out with friends and showing off his fence jumping skills.
Star likes to be the star of the show but how can you blame him as he is so gorgeous. Although not a full time resident Star is a regular visitor and Balance Psych Services team member. Star shines in the pasture like the star he is.
Whiz is a registered Paint who forgot to get his painted patches!! As the senior horse on the team at age 21 Whiz likes to show off his good looks and share his wisdom. He can usually be found hanging out in the midst of the action .
Nugget is the only gal in the herd and she is happy to be the princess of the property. She may be small like her name suggests but she is mighty and oh so sweet. Her likes are hanging out by the hay and sleeping in the sun.
Slick & friend
Slick is as smooth and glossy as his name suggests. He loves to work and can put on some speed when asked, but he loves his naps in the sun just as much. Slick can slide into your heart just as quick as can be but that's ok as he is a great friend to have around the herd.
Canine Specialist /Gate Monitor
Duke is the designated tester of our gates and will sneak past you if given have the chance. He is working on his boundaries but until they improve we all do the 'Duke Scooch' to get through without him.
