Rocky is HOPE's community ambassador and head pony of Pony Pals. He came to HOPE on Valentines Day in 2009 from Personal Ponies, Ltd. Rocky visits facilities in the community and brings smiles to everyone that sees him. Rocky is only 36 inches tall but he thinks he is the biggest horse in the barn. Rocky enjoys keeping HOPE followers up to date on his activities with his monthly diary entry in HOPE's Hoofbeats, our monthly newsletter.
Andy arrived at HOPE in January of 2010 after a long and successful career as a hunter pony. He immediately took to Rocky and they have become the best of friends. Andy will lick anyone who comes close to him and is always begging for peppermints. He was purchased by Dr. Anthony and Nanette Mancuso, our property owners, for their personal use but everyone quickly saw what an amazing edition to HOPE's barn Andy would be because of his gentle nature. The Mancuso's were generous enough to allow us to make Andy apart of our program.
Goober is HOPE's old man of the barn. He came to HOPE in June of 2010 after a long career as a trail horse. His owner decided he needed a job that didn't require him being on the trails for hours at a time so he sent him to HOPE. Alvin and Goober have already become the best of friends and do not like being apart.
Harry is a Morgan horse who is also owned by Dr. Anthony and Nanette Mancuso. Harry is a delight to everyone who visits HOPE. He is very laid back and enjoys riding lessons and pleasing our riders. Harry has a habit of trying to eat too much so he's always on a diet come summer time. Harry also enjoys driving in his off time from doing sessions.
Starlight is the third horse in our barn owned by Dr. Anthony and Nanette Mancuso. Starlight is kind and gentle. Even though she is tall, she will place her head low so that children and those who unable to stand are able to reach her. She is a favorite to our riders who are young and small.
Alvin came to HOPE in September of 2009. He is an Arabian that spent his whole life on the show circuit. He was donated to us by Fox View Farm since they knew what an amazing temperament he had. Alvin has quickly become a favorite of everyone in the barn because of his fun personality. He always has his ears perked and is eager to see anyone that passes by his stall or paddock.
Candy came to live at HOPE after Jessica Altum became our farm manager. Candy used to be a show horse and loves to eat anything especially peanut hay and cherries.
Sassy is currently leased but keep in eye out for her in the future because she will be coming back to join our stable
