Meet Sweets!

This gorgeous mare is on her fourth opportunity that we know of.  She was originally a reservation horse from the area near Ignacio.  She has bounced between rescues for nearly six years and had a home for four of those six. She is here at Denkai getting some training reminders and doing very well!

Age: Approximately 8-12 years
Sex: Mare
Height: 14.2 hh

Best Fit:  We believe the best fit for Sweets is going to be a person familiar with wild horses in terms of how she thinks and operates.  She will join up in an amazing way once she trusts her new adopter.  Sweets did very well for our farrier and stood for all four hooves to be trimmed. She can be jumpy so needs a very calm handler. We have not yet put a ride on her because we are working at her pace. She ground works very well and did just fine with a saddle on her back.  We will continue to update information as we go on her.

Meet Princess!

Princess is such a sweet yet stubborn gal!  We just love her. She originally entered Denkai with her momma and just recently lost her after 12 years together.  It was such a sad day for all of us. Princess gets to hang with Sweets now and the two of them do very well together.  Princess is a dominant mare in the herd and will try to be the boss with you, therefore she will be looking for a home with horse folk who know what they are doing and can keep her in line (nicely of course).  

Age: Approximately 12 years old
Sex: Mare
Height: 15hh

Best Fit:  Princess would do best as a leisure riding or light trail horse. She is currently recovering from somehow managing to tear off part of her heel, so until that time she is on rest.  She has been under saddle and ridden here at Denkai. She is very willing, soft and really bonds quickly with people.  Intermediate to advanced riders only. She will need continued training and we would consider her green at this point in time.

Meet Scally

This sweet girl is on Pasture Pal only duty. She is 28 years old and lived her life as a children's camp pony in the Greeley, CO area.  She has done more than her fair share of work and now just needs somebody to let her retire in her old age.  She keeps weight just fine with hay, we have not had to give her anything extra. She has a loose joint but the vet says it does not cause her any pain.  Do you have a big heart and a wonderful place she can call home until her final day?  Scally stands 14 hh tall and will act like she doesn't like to be caught but just call her bluff and she remembers.
