Miss Buttons (Missy)
11 year old, 15.3 hh, Thoroughbred-type mare. Miss Buttons is extremely easy going and very affectionate. She prefers softer riders who are patient, the more harsh you are with her the more concerned she is. And she’s a beautiful mover. She was started under saddle for the 2013 Bluebonnet Rescue Horse Training Challenge. She just spent 3 months (July-October 2017) with trainer Kayt Ladue-Laymon being ridden. She has done well in the round pen, arena, and riding out in fields. Kayt also feels Miss Buttons could be great at low level dressage. $900 adoption fee.
7 year old, 13.2 hh, pony mare (Appaloosa cross or POA). When Rainy Day arrived, she was hard to catch and very leery of humans. Her foster home has worked with her a lot, and she’s now much easier to catch but can still be nervous with new people. We don’t believe she’s broke to ride, but she is a great age to begin training. She could do almost anything someone trained her for. $300 adoption fee.
14 year old, grade mare. She is good to handle on the ground and is scheduled to go to a trainer soon to see what she knows. Her adoption fee is in review until we know her training level.
