was born at Lockehaven Farm on 7-15-08. She is a very leggy filly out our Mare Penny, by our stud, Ice. She is very well put together with a great work ethic. At 9 months she has already been hitched to our forecart and loves it. She lets you do anything with her head, ears, eyes, nose, mouth, feet, etc. She stands to be harnessed. She know what "back into the shafts means". She walks, trots, whoas, stands, backs, walks over tarps, pipes, across bridges, in or thru brooks, over logs, under low branches in the woods, lets a chain saw run beside her, etc. She loads in and out of the trailer and rides quietly. She will step in/out of a step up, or drive up a ramp and/or back up a ramp load. There hasn't been anything we've asked her that she won't do. She should be well over 17 hh.
Asking price $2500.
Liberty is a full sister to Dela below. __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
Dela has been sold. Congratulations Erika! We were very lucky and happy as Dela went to a wonderful home where the match is as perfect as it can get.
"Dela" was born at our farm on July 16, 2007. Sired by our own stud, "Ice"; Dela is gorgeous, and has been a pleasure to train.
Training to date has included, but not been limited to:
Walking and trotting on lead or lunge line,Walking on/over puddles, plastic tarps/bags, plywood, boards, logs, rocks, piles of lumber,dirt piles, and stairs, etc.,Ground driving, walk, trot, gee, haw, whoa, back, swinging around, etc.
You can touch her ears (inside and out), eyes, nose (inside nostrils included), check her teeth, touch anywhere on her body while she stands without being held, including picking up her feet.
Her conformation, gaits, feet, and temperment are as good or better than Ice and Penny. We expect her to be as trainable and willing as well. If room and board weren't an issue, we'd keep herforever.
"Ice", Liberty and Dela's sire, is around 18 hh, and about 17-1800 lbs. He is stunning in appearance and movement. He is confident with a trainable personality. He will walk, trot, canter, whoa and stand on a lead (without a shank). Ice has been ridden in a halter, bridle, bareback and under saddle. He puts his head down to be haltered or combed. Like Penny, you can do anything with his ears, eyes, nose, mouth, and touch him anywhere you want. He is good with the vet and farrier, and has excellent feet.
"Penny", Liberty and Dela's dam, is half of our farm team. Penny is about 17 hh and around 1700#, (more if she can get her way!) . She's an easy keeper, trustworthy, and steady as they come. There isn't a mean bone in her body. Penny is 13 years old. We've had her since she was a yearling. At 1-1/2 she was on our forecart doing a foliage drive! Penny has been on a forecart, wagon, cart, ground driven mower, rake, manure spreader, stone boat, and has skidded logs. She works single, double, and on either side. She trail rides, has shown under saddle, and is willing to let a novice get on to see what riding a horse is like. Penny is great with the vet and farrier and has excellent feet.
