Luna

16.1 hand, 11 year old TB mare

Looking for a FANCY hunter prospect???  Luna is your girl!!  Luna is an 11 year old TB mare.  She came to ANNA from another rescue in MD who was in desperate need to downsize.  Luna has been in training with them and is a doll in the round pen.  She WTC free in the pen and listens intently to her handler.  Under saddle, Luna is WTC with ease.  She is an honest worker and has a ton of potential.  Prior to coming to ANNA, she had also been started over small fences.  Luna has lots of chrome and will stand out in any show ring!!  Check out the quick video below of our FIRST ride on her since arriving at the Equine Center last weekend.  Luna is a unique girl with one other special feature.  She is missing her left eye.  It was removed after an accident and it hasn't slowed this girl down.

Zooey

13.1 Hand 2 1/2 Year Old Pinto Mare

Zooey is a 2 1/2 year old pinto mare.  She came to us when the State Police located her and three other horses locked in a barn starving to death.  You would never know that now!  Zooey is the picture of health.  She is about 13.3 hands now and still a growing girl.  She is stocky and sturdy and is currently in training with Blake & Robyn Roseberry at our Equine Clinic.  Zooey has lovely ground manners and Blake calls her "a handy little mare."  She is excelling under saddle, walk, trot and canter, backing and yielding to leg pressure too!  Zooey is quickly learning how to balance herself and drop her head.  This girl has a big woah too!  If you are looking for a pleasure prospect, reining prospect, trail prospect or really ANY discipline where an honest, hard working mount is key... Zooey is your girl.  Watch the YouTube clip below for a taste of what the youngster is up to!  Don't let her age fool you... she was started young because she was ready physically & mentally!!

Frannie

Senior (20+ years) Quarter Horse Mare, approx 15 hands

Frannie came to ANNA after the State Police found her pasture-mate and a goat dead inside their barn.  Frannie was able to sustain on the little pasture that she had available to her and somehow escaped the grips of death that her friends could not avoid.  She is a tough old-bird and is ready to retire in style.  Frannie is standoffish at first, but once she knows you are going to be her pal, she follows you around the pen.  Astoundingly sound, she does not appear to have any residual health concerns following her ordeal.  She is ready to keep your other horses company and live out her life on your farm.  If you can find it in your heart to give this girl a home to live out her days, please give us a call.

Glenda

17.1 hand 11 Year Old TB Mare

You read that correctly, 17.1 HANDS!!!  This big girl is a quiet baby-doll on the ground.  She is very nice to be around.  She works free in the round-pen, WTC and behaves nicely.  Glenda came to us from another rescue in MD, who was in desperate need to down-size.  She was in training at their facility, but has had some time off as they restructure.  She was previously WTC under saddle.  She was a little nervous for us when we tried to ride, so we have opted to slow down a bit and give her a chance to adjust to us and continue to work in the round pen first.  Below is a video from when she was being worked by the team in MD.  If you are in the market for a BIG horse, Glenda is your girl.  We think she will settle in as a gentle giant with the right person behind the reins.
