Update 5/15/2010 Crash is one of those few horses that you come by that is naturally smart and wililng to please. He has one of the best dispositions that I have seen on a young gelding. Crash is just a little over 2 years of age, he has not had any formal training under saddle, but this horse will do anything that you ask of him. We have ridden him twice and the first time we saddled him up, he acted as though, he had been saddled 100 times. He didn't flinch at all. He is super smart and super sweet. I am completely amazed by his willingness to please everytime you mess with him. He has been ridden in the round pen and this horse will be extremely easy to finish training. He hasn't offered to buck, rear or even throw a little fit. I simply can't say enough about this horse. If you are looking for a quiet, gelding to raise and train your way, this is the one. We will continue to work with Crash under saddle. If you are interested in giving this sweet boy a forever, loving home, please submit an adoption application or call/email to schedule an appointment to come visit Crash.
Update December 2014 Crash has returned to our rescue program at no fault of his own. Crash is now seeking a forever, loving home to call his own. Crash is a super sweet and super gentle horse.

He has been ridden by the father and the son of the former adopter. We will try to get some updated pictures of him under saddle soon. He currently has a wound on his leg, should heal and be fine. He doesn't show any signs of lameness at all. Crash is a big boy! He is a gentle giant, loves attention, always easy to catch, stands for the farrier and loads in a trailer. Crash has a current negative coggins, up to date on vaccinations, deworming and hoof maintenance. If you are interested in adopting this sweet boy and giving him the forever, loving home that he deserves, please submit an adoption application or call/email to schedule an appointment to come visit Crash.
Update March 2016 They say everything happens for a reason! Sometimes the reason becomes crystal clear if you watch closely. Rudy took Double D's death hard. He rarely used to lay down, but I would find him just laying in his run often. The run that was built for Rudy and Double D, where they spent many hours together. Rudy wasn't eating like he used too and when I would come over to love on him, I swear he would cry! The loss of Double D was hard enough, but watching Rudy grieve, broke my heart. I knew I needed to do something. One morning last week, I opened his run where he could go outside. He was able to talk to the horses on the other side of the fence. Once outside, he would just call out for Double D. I had some things to do, so I proceeded back into the house. A couple of hours later, I looked outside to see what he was up too, when I found him playing with Crash on the other side of the fence. That may not seem like a big deal to others, but it was to me, and the message was clear. See, Crash just returned to our rescue the same day we lost Double D. I was disappointed to see Crash come back, specially what led to his return, but it all became clear in that moment. I have said from day one, If God leads me to it, He would lead me through it. The loss of Double D and the return of Crash was no accident. Later that evening, we collected Crash out of the pasture to see how he and Rudy would do together. At that moment everything seemed right again. Crash and Rudy are getting along great and becoming fast friends. Of course, Crash can never replace Double D, but he is certainly helping a friend cope with the loss and putting a smile on our faces.
