Meet Our Horses

Spud is head of the herd and he takes great pleasure introducing you to the other horses in the herd.  Take it away, Spud!

Meet "Spud"!

I AM THE HEAD OF THE HERD!  Make no mistake about it, I have been waiting for this spot for many years!  I take my job seriously, but it isn’t easy.  Particularly since they seem to be adding MARES to our herd on a daily basis!  They require all my attention just to keep them in line.  I don’t get much help from Ace or Snickers either.  I guess that is what comes from being the Top Guy!

Meet "Double Trouble", otherwise known as "Dub"!

Boy, whoever named her got it right! She really is trouble. You see, she is the ALPHA MARE and of course, she thinks she is in charge.  She forgets that is my job.  She and I are getting up there in years, but we still know what it takes to be leaders!  Everyone seems to love Dub and she loves her job here at Harmony Farms.

Meet "Blondie"!

Blondie is part Mustang, which tells me she is a bit of a wild child! The humans say she is a brat at times. I know she gets in trouble for not standing still in the cross ties, pulling on her lead line, stealing hay and biting her stall when she doesn’t get treats.  But hey, no one is perfect!  She is still a cutie and we all love her.

We will miss you "Shy Anne"!

Happy & sad news today. Shy Anne, our feisty Appaloosa Mare went to a new home today! She is now living at the home of Jessica Webb in Cocoa.

Shy has not been happy in her job as a therapy horse for quite a while. She is definitely more of a one on one horse and as she aged, she was less tolerant of multiple handlers. She still loved her littlest riders though.

Jess is the Director of Veterinary Nursing at Eastern Florida State College, so Shy is in very good hands. She has a new pasture mate and will mostly be a companion to "Pearl" and a trail horse.

This could not be any more perfect for Shy.

We will miss her terribly and hate to see one of the family leave, but this is a positive parting.

Spud has lost his girlfriend, so be sure to give him an extra hug when you are at the barn.

Enjoy your new home, family and life, Miss Shy! We miss you already!

Meet "Diamond"!

The humans love her and say she is a wonderful therapy horse, takes care of her riders, rides smoothly, all those good things.  

They forgot to mention she is so pushy, bossy and crazy she has her own pasture! She thinks she is in charge of everyone.  She is kind of pretty too, but you didn’t hear it from me.

Meet "Mister"!

I really like Mister.  He is a big guy but they say he is a sweetie. He loves our riders and fits right into his job as a therapy horse. And he is still a baby compared to the rest of us!  One thing he picked up on real fast is asking for treats! He loves to eat everything!  He has his own pasture next to Diamond.  I sure wish we could have him back in my pasture, with the rest of herd to help me handle these MARES!

Meet "Ace"!

Hey, I finally got another Gelding for my team! Enough with the mares for a while! This is Ace and he is a really neat guy. He came into the barn, greeted everyone like he belonged there and you know what? Now he does! He is quiet in the pasture and does not make trouble for me. It does seem that Blondie has decided he is her BFF now, but that is fine with me. Keeps him busy and one less Mare I have to watch. Welcome Ace, glad to have you on the boys team!

Meet "Riddick"!

Another draft horse! Hooray! I like these big guys, they take all the heavy lifting off my old back. Riddick seems to have the philosophy of “Whatever”! He moves really slow, never gets too excited and likes everyone, even Diamond! He moved to Florida in 2022 from Las Vegas. Vegas, baby!

Riddick gets along with everyone in the herd, but Dub seems to be his favorite. Smart move guy, get in good with the Alpha Mare. We are happy he is at Harmony Farms and the riders all love riding “the big, big horse”.

Meet "Snickers"!

Snickers is a nice guy. Stays to himself, does not bother the girls (what a relief!) and knows his place in the herd. He really makes my job easy.  I have heard people say he is the sweetest horse in the barn.  I beg to differ!  I guess we all have our fans out there and Snickers is leading the pack.
