The Horses at Keezlenutten Farm

Here are photos of all the horses living on our farm currently, plus a little info about them.

Keezlenutten Farm Branson

Branson - 2009 15.1h Arbian/QH gelding

Show Name: Third Time's The Charm

Branson belongs to Sydney Ann. We're looking forward to seeing what this pair can accomplish together!

Buddy - 2003 16h roan Percheron/QH gelding

Buddy is a big boy! Not real tall, but really thick. He's a sweet boy that has a super comfy trot and canter. He is popular in our advanced beginner and intermediate lessons and especially on bareback days at camp!

Keezlenutten Farm Chili

Chili - 2006 15.1h liver chestnut ApHC mare

Registered Name: Zip 'Er Up

Chili is a very stout built horse that is used in our beginner and lower intermediate lessons. Her trot and canter are both pretty smooth and she seems willing over small fences.

 

Copper

Copper - 1996 chestnut APHA gelding

Copper loves trail riding and is often chosen for parades and off-the-farm trail rides because of his brave attitude.

Dell

Dell - 1998 15.3h chestnut AQHA gelding

Dell is Shana's horse. He came from Hunter's Edge Horse Farm and is a great lesson horse here as well. He is perfect for our walk/trotters!

Dusty

Dusty - 1988 chestnut 14.1h AQHA mare

Registered Name: Skippin In Saw Dust

Dusty has the smoothest trot, for a non-gaited horse. She's very sweet and is often found in beginner lessons. She's "practically perfect in every way" :-) as long as you just want a walk/trot horse!

Finnigan

Finn - 2002 chestnut 14.3h QH cross gelding

Show Name: Mischief Managed

Finn has very smooth gaits for a large pony/small horse. Aside from his less than perfect ground manners, he is a great lesson horse!

Megan on Flicka

Flicka - 1994 bay 15.1h snowflake App/? mare

Show Name: Primadonna

Join the debate in what Flicka is crossed with. We're pretty sure it's Arabian, but who knows?!? She came to us as a trail horse, but due to her "inability to play well with others" (aka doesn't like horses right behind her) she moved down to the lesson barn. We had no idea what to expect out of her, but she sure likes jumping! She's also excellent for kids to learn how to canter on because she's so smooth. Due to her arthritis, she is used for flat lessons these days.

 Gandalf

Gandalf - 1988 grey 16.2h DWB/Selle Francais gelding

Gandalf has a rocking horse canter with some really nice lead changes. These days he is mostly a W/T horse, but before coming to Keezlenutten he showed on the "A" circuit in the working hunter division.

Keezlenutten Farm

Ginger - 2001 chestnut 14.1h QH/Welsh mare

Show Name: Ginger Snap

Ginger has VERY smooth gaits and is great for beginner - advanced riders. Her steering isn't always the best and she can sometimes get a little quick, but everyone seems to like riding her! Doesn't hurt that she's super comfy.

Keezlenutten Farm Gus

Gus - 2011 16h Draft/Paint/Saddlebred (?!?! who knows) gelding

Show Name: With Gusto

Gus has a GREAT personality and tries super hard to figure out what you want to do. He's very smooth both at the canter and over jumps. We're currently working on desensitizing him to water and fly spray.

Keezlenutten Farm Harley

Harley - 2010 chestnut 15.3h ApHA gelding

Harley belongs to Neah. He's a sweet boy that isn't in a rush to go anywhere. He is a nice addition to the beginner and intermediate lesson program!

Holiday

Holiday - 2002 bay 16.2h TB/Clydesdale mare

Show Name: Fighting Gravity

Holiday belongs to Joel and Danielle. She competed in the Modified division back in her show days, but has since been retired due to a suspensory injury.

Keezlenutten Farm Honor

Honor - 2012 dark bay 16h OTTB mare

Registered Name: Mitzi's Miniball

Honor is a project horse for Danielle. She loves to jump and has started to be used in some advanced lessons.

 

Hopie

Hopie - 2000 chestnut 16.1h AQHA gelding

Registered Name: Hopie Arwen

Hopie is a homebred boy that is a big baby who would love to be your pet. His gaits are great but his size is amazing! Neither his mom or dad were anywhere close to his height! He has proven to be a great intermediate lesson horse.

Isabella

Isabella - 1995 chestnut 13.3h registered Paso Fino mare

Isabella is a very smooth gaited trail horse with lots of personality.

Keezlenutten Farm Kip

Kip - 2000 AQHA 16.1h bay Appendix gelding

Registered Name: Kick in the Pass

Kip is a nice large Appendix with super smooth gaits. His friendly demeanor and super cute face, plus his really smooth gaits, have made him a favorite at the barn, ESPECIALLY with my adult students! He has a pretty nice jump too. Just don't look at him below the knees LOL, those are some seriously turned out feet!

Kodi

Kodi - 2002 ApHC (can't you tell?!??!) 15.1h gelding

Registered Name: Kodiak Cassanova

Kodi is a lazy boy that teaches riders to be assertive and how to use a driving seat aid (or he doesn't move...). But he is very capable once you get him going. He's great for teaching people to jump since he's so quiet and honest to the fences!

Keezlenutten Farm Ladybug

Ladybug - 2007 APHA 15.1h chestnut mare

Registerd Name: WOR Sparkling Image

Ladybug is a very sweet mare that is wonderful for walk/trot/individual canter lessons. She is super smooth and pretty easy to steer.

Keezlenutten Farm Nalee

Nalee - 1997 ApHC 15h chestnut with a blanket mare

Nalee is a very sweet mare that belongs to Cara. After settling in at our farm (she was used to living by herself and she became a *little* attached to Ginger when she first arrived) she has become a great walk/trot/individual canter horse!

Nemo

Nemo - 2003 Arab/TB? 15h chestnut gelding

Show Name: Just Keep Swimming

Nemo is a cute mover and jumper that belongs to Jennifer Ellis! He lives up at the trail barn.

Keezlenutten Farm Nox

Nox - 2010 OTTB 16.2h bay gelding

Show Name: Nox Your Sox Off

Nox is Karly's horse. He shows a lot of promise for the jumpers because he has a ground covering stride and jump. He has quite a bit of personality too! He is used for lessons a couple days a week.

Keezlenutten Farm Paisley

Paisley - 2013 Paint cross 14.2h mare

Show Name: Paint Me Paisley

Paisley belongs to Nicole. She is a very forward mare that seems to really love jumping and competing in the Jumpers. Nicole is enjoying working with her and she is also used in some more advanced lessons.

PJ - 1998 APHA 15.1h mare

Show Name: Missed A Spot

PJ is owned by Lizz & Laurie Phillips but is being leased by the farm for lessons. She's an excellent lesson horse for all levels of riders!

Keezlenutten Farm Polly

Polly - 2000 black QH cross (maybe some TB?) 14.1h mare

Show Name: Polly Wolly Doodle

We've had Polly at our farm off and on since she was about 4. Polly has grown up a lot, but is still quite the little speed demon, jumping machine. She loves to jump and she loves to go fast. Polly is leased by Anna.

Sage

Sage - 1999 bay 14.3h Paso Fino gelding

Sage is Margaret's trail horse. He is very calm and easy going with a super smooth gait. After her very long search, she is happy to have found such a nice boy!

Keezlenutten Farm - Sally

Sally - 2012 grey 16.1h OTTB mare

Registered Name: Sally Pollock High

Sally is a very green project for Danielle to work with this summer. She had a somewhat long racing career (3 years) with a few wins, 2 seconds and a few thirds. She retired sound from racing in late 2017 and hasn't done a lot since then.

Keezlenutten Farm - Scout

Scout - 2015 bay/white14.2h paint cross mare

Scout is Cailyn's horse. She's very young so Danielle and Nicole are riding her quite a bit right now, but she is very quiet and shows a lot of promise!

Keezlenutten Farm Sky

Sky - 2009 bay 15.2h OTTB mare

Sky is a new horse that we are evaluating for the lesson program. We would love to research her tatoo, but it's the worst one we've ever seen and we're struggling to read it enough to research her past. Our friend Jeff owned her for the last few years, but we know nothing of her race history.

Keezlenutten Farm - Smidge

Smidge - 2011 bay 14.2h QH cross mare

Show Name: Just A Smidge

Smidge is a project for the lesson barn. She has great ground manners and is super smooth under saddle. We are very unsure of what she has done in the past, but she seems to be a willing jumper. She is being half-leased by Hannah.

Danielle on Street Car

Street Car - 1995 grey 15.2h SB/TB gelding

Street Car is owned by Danielle, but used in the lesson program. He is a fun horse that definitely loves to go. While his ground manners leave a lot to be desired, he makes up for it with the most honesty to the fences around. He will be shown in the Novice Rider and Lows division with students. He is being half-leased by Emma.

Keezlenutten Farm - Sully

Sully - 2013 brown 16.2h WB/Paint gelding

Sully is owned by Danielle. He has had quite a few setbacks in his short life and we are currently trying to work through his latest. Hoping that after this one we can start moving on with his training!!

Timmy

Timmy - 1996 chestnut 15h QH/TWH/App gelding

Show Name: Tiny Tim

Timmy is full of personality! Unfortunately, due to some vision changes, Timmy has been retired to live out his days at the trail barn.

Keezlenutten Farm Titus

Titus - 2009 dun 14.3h Paint gelding

Show Name: Titus

Titus belongs to Madi U. He is a great little guy with a pretty amazing jump! He's pretty popular since he's so cute, but also because he's such a good boy to ride (even for little kids!). You need to have sticky legs if he thinks the jump is scary though - his knees come up to his eyeballs!!

Tucker

Tucker - 1998 bay 14h pony gelding

Show Name: All Tuckered Out

Tucker is Lisa's pony. He's VERY cute! He lives up at the trail barn.

Keezlenutten Farm Tye

Tye - 2004 chestnut 16.1h QHx gelding

Show Name: Bow Tye

Tye is Kailee's horse. He's a very sweet boy to ride (though he's a bit of a bully in the field, we won't talk about that) and is used a couple days a week in our lesson program.
