“G” & “H” Horses
GATSBY (PROPER SCOUT) retired to Ryerss Farm at the age of 24 in May of 2015. He is a bay Thoroughbred gelding who stands 15.3 hands high. He has settled into the Upper Barn herd nicely and has already made a very special friend in Fruitti, who also retired to Ryerss recently.
GINGER, a chestnut Quarter Horse mare, retired to Ryerss Farm on October 9, 2016. She is 25 years old and stands 15hh. Ginger is one of three mares who all arrived together as rescues from the Large Animal Protective Society. They had been adopted several years earlier by a woman who now could no longer care for them and, therefore, returned them to LAPS. As all three were all in their 20’s and could not be adopted as riding horses, they needed a permanent home to live out their retirement years. Ryerss has generously provided that place. Please visit Ginger and her friends, Bianca and Peanut when you come to the farm. They currently reside in the two pastures north of the upper barn and silo.
GOLDEN HALO arrived to retire at Ryerss Farm on January 10th, 2018. She is a 20-year-old bay Thoroughbred who had a brief racing career in her early years. After giving up racing, she became a brood mare who produced several foals that had racing careers of their own. She is a lovely mare who will be a nice asset to the herd and should make friends easily. Please greet Golden Halo the next time you are visiting Ryerss.
GREY MIST arrived at Ryerss Farm on December 19th, 2017. She is a grey Thoroughbred/Warmblood mare who is 27 years old. She (along with her friend Miss Muff) came to Ryerss from the Odell Estate and was a show horse in her early years. In more recent times she and Miss Muff were pasture mates at the home of her former owner.
HANK (registered name LAPHROIG) is a bay Hanoverian gelding, born in 2001. He is 16.1hh. Hank retired to Ryerss Farm on September 15, 2018. He has a sweet personality and has quickly made friends with another newcomer, Bella.
HERBIE, a 17hh gray Holsteiner gelding, retired to Ryerss Farm on April 2, 2016, at the age of 21. In his younger days, he was an equitation horse having the show name “Amused.” Herbie has competed in both junior national equitation finals (USEF Medal & Maclay) and adult equitation national finals (Ariat National Adult Medal, Monarch International Adult Medal). Herbie enjoyed his time as a show horse and helped his owner win many ribbons and year-end awards. His favorite part of horse showing was getting a peppermint when he came out of the show ring. Herbie has earned a well-deserved retirement. Herbie’s stablemates, Monte and Sophie, are also both retired at Ryerss, so the three will enjoy a wonderful family reunion here!
HINAULT (“HENRY”) is a bay Dutch Warmblood. He stands 15.2 hands. Born in 1989, he held a career in dressage, competing at the Training Level. Henry retired to Ryerss in January 2005 and enjoys spending time with his friend Caputo. Henry is very handsome and has a friendly and outgoing personality.
