 Blue Frolic
Now Available For Adoption!

Blue Frolic - 3 yr old, 16hh gelding
Adoption Fee: $300
Located: Lexington, KY
Contact: Lisa Molloy at

You won’t ever feel blue having this horse around – Blue Frolic loves people and is looking for that special home that can offer him time, patience and much love.

Blue is just 3 years old and stands 16hh although he should top out over 16.1hh by the time he has finished growing. With no vices, he has good ground manners and has been started back under saddle after several months of downtime. As he is young and still rather green, he will require a more experienced home but is kind and willing and is quite a cute mover. Good to shoe, clip, bathe etc, he learns quickly and with enthusiasm. He is stalled next to a mare which has never been an issue and is now on turnout with an older gelding.

He is already something of a celebrity having been featured in this August’s edition of The Horse magazine for a horse adoption article and he is scheduled to be on the cover of September’s issue too and he handled 2 professional photo shoots with a poise rarely found in such a young horse.

Blue last raced in February of this year, one of only 2 outings. He was retired at that time as he had chipped his knee. Although he has been rehabbed, he would not be suitable for jumping and is limited to flat work only.

Lifes Sequel is a 2006 15.2h bay gelding. This is the sweetest gentlest gelding that warms you heart whenever you are around him. Roaming is very willing to please, on his first ride he went into our pond like it was no big deal!

He will make a great trail, pleasure, or carriage horse! He has been turned out with mares, geldings, and ponies and does great with all! He is good to clip, bathe, cross tie & trailer.

Town Gazelle
NV Graduate Available For Adoption!

Town Gazelle 13 yr old, 16.2hh gelding
Adoption Fee: Waived
Location: New Lexington, Ohio
Contact: Shirley at

I adopted Gazelle shortly after he left the track five years ago. He was a top Ohio Stakes winner with 140 starts over six years and earnings of $237,000.   Gazelle and I have ridden on trails,  participated in two hunter paces, and one SPHO fun show.

Gazelle gets his confidence from other horses he is being ridden with on the trail.  If he is with a group experienced trail horses he will just go along, cross water, and bridges with just a little encouragement.  But if the other horses put up a fight crossing these obstacles, so will Gazelle.  He does require at least an intermediate rider. Gazelle has a little bit of arthritis in his right rear hock but this does not affect his ability to be ridden, the vet said he should just not be ridden hard on trails that contain steep hills. Gazelle raced on the pace but prefers to trot under saddle. He will rack if collected and last summer I did get him to canter twice.

Regretfully, I must give Gazelle up as I’m getting a divorce and can no longer afford to keep him.  He is in excellent condition and is a wonderful horse.   He is a big horse that can accommodate a large rider.  Whoever adopts him will be a very lucky person. He is currently available for adoption from my farm near New Lexington, Ohio.
