Adventures in racehorse retraining

Samantha Miller adopted the beautiful gelding Wise One from Tranquiliy earlier this summer, and has decided to create her own blog about his progress in retraining. Each horse and human pair is unique, with their own challenges and their own rewards. Here is a link to SAMANTHA'S BLOG and I hope all adopters and potential adopters will find encouragement and comraderie in her stories. And here again is the lovely Wise One, now known as "ARES", its his blog too.


New Adoptable Fire Lookout!

Tranquility Farm has many new adoptables for summer 2010, and among the most beautiful is Fire Lookout, 5 year old 16.3 hand gelding by Forest Camp out of the great champion mare Riboletta. Fire Lookout is a friendly, sensible horse that will make a stunning dressage horse for an experienced rider. Come and see this lovely horse in action!


A Spa Day for Invited Guest

When we are fortunate enough to have volunteers at Tranquility Farm it is the perfect opportunity to bring some of the retired horses out of the pasture for a day of spa treatment and pampering. Here is volunteer Lauryn walking the bathed, groomed and and ever-so-proud Invited Guest, who at age 26 still wants us to remember that she is a big time race horse.


New Adoptable Anna's Mishi

Beautiful Anna's Mishi had a warmblood foal last year, and she is now offered for adoption as a sport horse prospect. Anna is 7 years old, 16 hands, unraced, and she has no history of injury or unsoundness. Anna is broke to ride but she will need some preliminary work to start a new career. This pretty mare has one of the sweetest dispositions imaginable and she is naturally quite and sensible.
