Santiago has been here the longest. He can be a little clumsy at times, he is by far the nosiest of the Pasos and can figure out about any lock. Given a calculator he would probably make a good engineer. Santiago has a pastern problem and is now retired at 24.
The Paso Fino is a naturally-
Max, my very best compadre, died in September of 2014. I cannot get myself to take his picture off the website. He is still missed very much. Max, you are the best!
Trooper is the leader of the gang. In other words he is on top of the “pecking” order. Although he is the oldest of the four, he has great stamina and will krun all day along the fence when his girlfriend Lukie is out and avout. He is quite large and bony for a Paso Fino.
Fuego is the “baby” of the group. When he came to us as a four year old he had apparently not had horse buddies before. Pecking order had to be learned. He is surprisingly laid back for a Paso Fino and would probably fall asleep on the trail if he was alone.
Lukie was a mal nourished rescue horse when we got her. She is now a spunky but gentle giant who likes trail rides. That rider by the way is 6’4” tall!
We named her Lukie after our dear friend who died of breast cancer and always had an open heart and an open door for animals or humans in need.

Our five year old red roan BLM mustang gelding “Ronin” is extremely good hearted and laid back. He likes to work with people and had his first longer trail rides with fellow Mustang Raven and babysitter Lukie.
He even poses for selfies with visitors.

Zavorine is our BLM burro. She is gets along with everybody but prefers to hang with her girlfriend Vally. Alpacas are her hobby but if left alone with them she will chase them all over the place -
She loves carrots and loves to be brushed! Who knows, maybe some day we’ll give her a job. Like pulling a cart to go to the grocery store...

Cadence is the now 3 years old colt of Lukie (the Percheron) and an unknown sire (possibly a Belgian). He looks like he is going to be a tall fellow! He is in training by Amy, our colt (or teenager) specialist and learning steadily. He is very smart and willing.

Raz is our newest Paso Fino. He is a 8 year old gelding. We are not quite sure what he did in his past but he was sold to us as “afraid of trees”. He is quite the chicken when it comes to the scary outdoors. He is very comfortable though. We’ll get him all chilled :-
“Vally” is the most beautiful horse here. She is a “blond” but very smart Peruvian Paso and has a wonderful expression. She is 8 years old but has not had many years of training. She is a little skittish but super comfortable to ride. Here she is with her biggest fan on a little stroll through the neighborhood.

Our five year old beautiful black BLM mustang gelding “Raven” is almost stealing Vally’s show with his stunning long mane and impressive posture. He came to us earlier this year (2015) and has been trained by his human bestest friend Sarina. They both are so close you could not stick a paper in between them.

The Percheron is a breed of draft horse that originated in the Huisne river valley in western France, part of the former Perche province from which the breed takes its name. Usually gray or black in color, Percherons are well-
