Sugar is a very nice quarter horse type 6 year old mare. She came to FCER as part of a cruelty case. She stands about 15 HH and weighs in at about 1100 pounds. Sugar is a good sized horse, but she's also gentle. She's not a finished horse, and will need an intermediate to advanced rider to progress her skill set. She leads, loads, stands for the farrier and rides pretty good. Steady on the trail and okay with dogs.

Brady is a 15 year old red dun Quarter Horse type Gelding. He is an excellent trail horse, as he is very light and responsive. Brady is a "been there, done that" kind of horse. An intermediate rider would do well with him. He stands about 14.3 HH and is current on vaccinations, deworming, teeth floating and hoof trims.
Chief is a 22 year old gelding standing about 15 HH. He is a "been there, done that" kind of guy. Chief is a very gentle horse, content to go on a ride with or without other horses along. He is well trained, and will work off your legs when being ridden. Due to an old wire injury to his right front pastern Chief has a slight reduction in range of motion for that foot, making him a "walk/trot" horse. Chief stands for the farrier, trailers, stands tied all very well. He is up to date on vaccinations, deworming and farrier work. The right home for Chief would be with a person wanting to do casual trail riding.
Adoption fee for Chief is $450
