Image of Hope Ranch
My name is Zoey and am a Quarter Horse. Annie is my cousin and we look a lot alike. I am very sweet, love to give and received hugs. One of my favorite things is to be groomed. Sometimes I almost fall asleep.
My name is Penny and am a Paint Horse. Although I am very large I have a sweet, calm spirit. People love to ride me and do tricks on me. I have been a therapy horse for several years.
My name is Chase. I am a Quarter Horse and my personality is sweet and mellow like a marshmallow. My favorite thing is to have my face softly petted. I am one of the biggest horses at Image of Hope. One of my favorite things to do is ride out on trails.
My Name is Annie. I am a 31 year old Quarter Horse. Most of my life has been spent winning ribbons in Western Pleasure classes. I love the show ring especially Trail Class, but because my eyes are not as good as they used to be I have retired from showing. I am not sad about this because I now have a new job and that is to help people. I let them brush me, lead me and ride me. I am so patient with my people and I help them to feel good again, to forgive, and to feel safe and loved.
Update on Annie:
Annie is no longer with us. After much thought and prayer we decided to give her peace. She was in too much pain because of health issues and age. Although she will be missed, we believe doing this was the right thing to do and a gift to her.
My name is A Smoken Playgirl. I am 22 years old and have known my owner since birth. I am a National Cutting Horse which means I work with cows and have won in competitions many times. I was retired from this 10 years ago because I hurt my foot but have had many babies that are now being showed and are Cutting Champions. I was very well trained so am able to teach my people things like how to put on tack, lead, and groom. I am very happy at Image of Hope and enjoy helping people.
My name is Outlaw. I am a very fast pony and used to do contesting all over the place. I have lived at Whispering Pines for a year now but have known my humans for a long time. Although it is said that ponies can be a handful sometimes that is not me. I have very good manners and listen well. One of my favorite things is to be brush.
My name is Lilly and I am a Pony of American (POA). Running fast is something that is fun to me but I also like to give children lessons and teach them how to ride. My coat is hard to keep clean but that's OK because I love to be brushed and will stand nicely. I also have good manners so can be trusted with children and adults who are just learning. One of my favorite things to do is be a unicorn at special events here at the ranch.
