It has taken Snazzy awhile to come around, but he loves his head scratched and loves his "spa" days! He teaches you a lot about patience and being flexible because you can never be too sure what mood he will be in.
Theo is an American pony and a love bug! He loves getting attention as much as he loves giving attention. Theo doesn't have a mean bone in his body. However, when he doesn't want to do something, he can be mighty stubborn! He may be small, but he is strong. Theo has recovered after having hoof surgery and is back with his herd!

Lone Oak will be Huey's forever home where he will help so many people and eat a lot of food!
Samson is an 8-year-old Oldenburg/Percheron cross horse. Samson is quite tall at 17 hands. He was previously in training for dressage (a type of horse training) when he had to have surgery on his back legs. After the surgery, Samson fully recovered, but just was not happy doing the training. However, he is happy with a job and is great with trail riding, walking and trotting. His previous owner decided that it would be better for Samson to become a therapy horse where he can be loved on while helping humans.
