Doc was one of the first two Icelandic horses here at the farm. Doc was born in Iceland in 1986. He was bought because he was the perfect horse to work with children- small, strong, calm, and friendly! Doc is loved by many children and he is worth his weight in gold!
Dayton was bred in Iceland, born in 1993. His registered name is “Ogmundur
fra Ketilsstooum”. He is very good at the tolt which is a gait unique
to the Icelandic horses. Dayton has learned to pull a cart, and was very
excited to be a part of the 2008 Sudbury 4th of July Parade. Dayton is
a handsome horse and has a heart to match!
Samwise is a blue dun (black) Icelandic horse born in 1995 in Iceland.
His registered name is “Tinni”. He was imported for a 13 yr old boy who
did Icelandic pony club rallies with him. He is now named for a character
in “The Lord of the Rings” who was known for his honesty, bravery, and
loyalty….all vital characteristics for a child’s horse.
Romeo is a chestnut Quarter horse (born in 1998) who makes us all laugh with his playfulness - he always wants to play with the toys before the students. Romeo was a successful competitive reining horse for many years with a teenage boy and is now on his second career as a therapy horse. He has a beautiful trot and is great at teaching our more advanced students to post and ride independently. He is very friendly and will often nicker if you call to him in the barn.
Thor is also an Icelandic Horse, born at the Mill Farm in New York.
He grew up in a herd of Icelandics and spent his time giving trail rides
to riders needing special care. He is now 8 years old. He is especially
cute because of his enormous forelock. Thor is patient and kind with
the students and volunteers and loves to snuggle!
was born in 2001 and is a Halflinger gelding who is full of spunk and kindness. He loves to bat his beautiful eyelashes at you from under his long blonde forelock - what an adorable face. He has a wonderfully rhythmic trot and is great for trail riding, lunging, etc. He even knows how to be a vaulting horse. He joined our herd in 2012 and is a great addition to our program.
