Standardbreds Available For Adoption

Bold Willie

10-year-old Black Gelding

Willie is a bold 16.3h, handsome, and gentle. He took to his retraining under saddle immediately and is already being considered for adoption into his new home. Watch for updates!

Carbon Footprint

13-year-old Black Gelding

Carbon is 15h and has just begun his training under saddle. He is personable with people, and willing to trot down the driveway. Come and meet this lovely little horse at Photo Finish Farm!

Cool Lady Dagney

19-year-old Bay Mare

Cool Lady Dagney is a Maine-bred mare who was not a competitive racer, was sold to the Amish where she lived until she was 15, then rescued from the kill pen and donated to FFS so that she might be trained for pleasure disciplines and find a home. After initial work, it is apparent that she can not do ring work, but might be suitable for light walking on trails or as companion horse. She is a willing worker, but nervous outside of her routine. This mare deserves a safe retirement! UTD vet & farrier. 

Adoption fee: $500.00

Courageous

9-year-old Bay Mare

Courageous is just over 15h, sound, and eager to learn her new job as a pleasure horse. She was too slow to race and her owner wanted her to have a safe new home. Her training has just begun and she's already showing a willingness to learn. Watch for updates!

April 20, 2019: Courageous is ready for adoption! This lovely 8-year old mare is UTD, trailers, stands for farrier, has good ground manners, and is under saddle both in the ring and out in the world. She will be going to the Fun Day Show at the Hollis Equestrian Park on May 5 for an outing with lots of other horses, people, and games.

June 14, 2019: Courageous enjoyed a day out at the Fun Show and is adding many trail miles to her resume. She is loved by all who know her and looks forward to her new home for years of adventures! UTD vet & farrier.

Adoption fee: $700.00

Snow in August

8-year-old Gray Mare

"Ellie" was adopted as a companion horse after having been in just one race.  In the past 5 years she was ridden just a few times and entered our program when the other horse passed on from old age. Ellie is a striking 16h mare with good manners, and already in her beginning training she looks lovely under saddle! Ellie is a flashy mare who looked fantastic at her first show!
