Dude is "built like a tank". Most quarter horses will range from 1,000 lbs to 1,200 lbs, but Dude weighs a whopping 1,350 lbs! He is built for strength and hard work, yet his favorite thing is to be loved and pampered! Even horses have disabilities and special needs. Dude went blind in his right eye in 2010 due to an infection. Dude has adapted to his condition and uses his other senses to go about his every day horse life. Some people would see his vision loss as a hindrance, but we see it as a way for others to relate with Dude.

Misty is the tallest horse at the ranch at 16 Hands. She was bred to be a show horse, but she never made it to the ring. Misty is a gaited horse, which means she racks instead of trots or lopes. Someone forgot to tell her though because she loves to run in the pasture! With her gentle nature and her love of being pampered, she fits right into being a therapy horse. She is a great listener and a strong shoulder to lean on!

Ransom is one of the most loving, gentle horses you will ever meet! He is always up for any task you give him, but he also loves to socialize! Before he came to the Ranch, he was a TV star (let's just say he's not a fan of zombies)! He also used to be a real cowboy's horse and herded cattle in Texas. Since Ransom is so laid-back and good-natured, he is a fan favorite and a great horse for beginners. Standing at 16 hands tall he looks intimidating, but he is just a huge teddy bear. He also loves to give "fist" bumps with his nose!

Amos is just one of those horses you can talk too! He has such a fun personality, but at the same time he can be so quiet and loving. He is the one horse at the Ranch who has been with Ms. Kayla since birth! He loves to socialize with people, horses, and even pigs! He will listen to your secretes, hopes, dreams, and your hard times without any judgement. He loves to participate in ground work with our children and teens in the Dream Catchers and 4 Directions programs.

Skydancer, or Sky as most call her, is rambunctious, nosy, and playful. She is a goofball who is always up to something, whether good or bad! Her personality of a bossy teenager comes into great affect during our sessions with the 4D program. She will test their willingness and boundaries. The girls will learn, though, that if you can get Sky to bend to your will, you can do anything!

CupCake is a small pony with a lot of sass and love of food! She is the oldest of all the horse at the ranch, but sometimes acts like one of the youngest! She may be small but she thinks she is 15 hands tall! She even managed to catch the eye and heart of our lovey gray horse Amos. When CupCake is not flirting with Amos in the pasture or trying to eat her own weight in grass she is working mostly in the Brave One program. She is so wonderful and calm with each student.

Tux is our newest pony addition to the herd, but he has fit in right away! Being our only male pony, Tux is always getting attention from the ladies. He loves to hang out at the fence with the older horses though. His full name is Tuxedo, but we affectionately call him Tux. He is the largest pony at the Ranch, which makes him great for our beginner students. He is a very laid-back guy who loves to be around children, and he'll follow you wherever you go!

Muffin is the smallest miniature horse we have here at the ranch. One of her favorite pastimes is eating as much hay as she can fit in her mouth! Muffin loves to dress up, she even has her own pair of high-top tennis shoes! In addition to her time at the ranch, Muffin travels to school functions and community outreach events to delight children with her dazzling personality. She is also our reading ambassador for the Reading Warriors program.

Pickles is our youngest pony on the ranch! She is just over one year old, and is still learning what her job is here at the Ranch. Her birth mom is no longer at the ranch, but Cupcake has basically adopted her! A fun fact about Pickles is that she has an afro because her baby hair didn't fall out, isn't she adorable! Even though Pickles is still getting used to working around the ranch, she provides us all with quality entertainment! You can always find her sleeping, eating, or following one of the older ponies around. Pickles is super curious and nosy, and one of her favorite times of the day is snuggle time!
Each horse at Mending Arrow Ranch has a unique past that gives them the ability to reach out to children in amazing ways by serving as their loyal protectors.
