Daystar's Nike Can Wait is a 20 year old bay connemara cross gelding standing 15 1/2 hh tall. He is Yvonne's first horse and her pride and joy. Nike loves small children and is very patient with them, but he can teach our more experienced riders better then the little kids. He came to Yvonne as a two year old knowing nothing, he is her life long riding partner. Everyone on the show circuit knows Nike which makes Yvonne proud. Inevitable he steps off the trailer at a show and someone says "Oh Nike is here!" Nike has a freeze brand on his left hip of a four leaf clover and an "N" in the middle. Yvonne decided on this since connemaras are orginally from Ireland and he definitely has the connemara spirit. Nike loves to jump and has jumped as high as 3'6" competively. He won circuit champion for low jumpers at Moriah horse show in 2015. He is an amazing horse and everyone that has ever gotten a chance to ride him loves him. Nike's favorite treat is watermelon which he gets every year on his birthday, and no he doesn't share. This year he is teaching the next generation of riders to love competing at jumper shows
Lullabye Lyric is a 11 year old chestnut quarter horse/ welsh pony cross standing 13.2 hh tall. She came to us in February 2013 from Central Virginia Horse Rescue. She is one of the most loveable ponies you will ever meet. She always comes right up to people and will follow any kid anywhere. We are glad she has found her forever home with us. Lyric just started competing in the hunter pleasure classes Summer of 2013, in the final show of the season she got her first ribbons. We are looking forward to continuing her training and seeing her compete in hunter pony over fences this show season. Lyric's favorite treat is popcorn! As of July 2019 Lyric is retired from the lesson program. She is loving life at our retirement facility in Linden
" Frankly, Miss Scarlett" aka "Scarlett" is a 14hh 16 year old chestnut quarter horse pony. She came to us in October of 2014 from a very loving family that could not take her on their move to a different state. We have always said that if we found another pony that is as loving as Lyric we would buy her in a heart beat. So needless to say when we got the opportunity to have her as apart of our horse family, we jumped! Scarlett can do it all, she will be patient with your little one as well as help your child excel over jumps. Scarlett won the circuit champion for puddle jumpers at Moriah horse show 2015 as well as 2017 Picturesque division end leadline with a 3 year old rider. She is the easiest pony to learn to trot on. We have found that Scarlett's favorite treat is Nacho Cheese doritos. It is really funny to see her muzzle covered in Dorito crumbs.
"Tawny Tiger RBR" aka Ty is a 9 year old 14.1hh paint pony that is on lease to us. He has the same loving personality as all of our ponies and loves following kids around. Ty is very easy to ride and can teach the beginners as well as the more advanced students. A lot of our beginner adults love riding him. His favorite treats are Sweet Tarts!
Farnley Chorus Girl aka Bella is a 24 year old Dartmoor pony standing at 12.2hh,she cam to us in June 2016. She is our smallest and oldest pony on the farm but definitely holds her own. Bella is a master at teaching the small children to ride. We use her primarily for little ones just starting out on up through those learning to trot. If you fall in love with her ...get in line she has a fan club. Her favorite treats are Fig Newtons.
Daystar Summer Shandy is a 5 yr 13hh connemara pony. We bought Shandy July of 2019 as an almost untouched pony. We immediately started making her a model equine citizen and she rocked everything we threw at her. We use Shandy for our peewee pony riders and confident beginner riders. Our more advanced riders love taking her over jumps and trail rides. Her favorite treat is Jelly Beans. Shandy is for sale but we are in no rush to see her go. It will have to be a match made in heaven for us to let her go
