Our Horses & Ponies
Farms is home to a small band of purebred Arabian horses in addition to our miniature donkey
herd. At present time, we have 7 Arabian broodmares, one Quarter Horse mare, and one beautiful
purebred Arabian stallion. Time does not permit us to show the horses, or even to trail
ride much with them anymore. Basically,they are backyard pets! All of the Arabians here
are registered through the Arabian Horse Association, or International Arabian Horse Association
for Half-Arabs. They all have excellent bloodlines and are gorgeous horses.
addition to our Arabian herd, we also maintain a small band of Welsh and Shetland ponies
at the original Shorecrest Pony Farm location not far from our Miniature Donkey and Arabian
Farm. Our Welsh stallion, Apple Jack, aka 'A.J.', is a purebred grey who throws super babies
with excellent temperaments, but unfortunately is unregistered, as his papers got 'lost
in the shuffle'. The pony mares in the herd are also unregistered, but all come from a long
line of Shetland, Welsh or Shetland/Welsh crosses originating from Shorecrest's foundation
herd from the 1950's and 60's, some of which were successfully shown. On occasion, A.J.
is also crossed with an Arabian mare, producing a registered Half-Arabian foal. These Half-Arabs
mature to a perfect size for children to ride, and are very pretty, sharp looking animals.
All of our ponies and horses make wonderful pets. Some people buy them as companions
for a horse or pony they already own, and others buy them and train them for their children
to ride. We offer only 3 or 4 pony foals, 2 or 3 purebred Arabian foals, and 1 or 2 Half-Arab
foals each year. Generally, all of our young ponies and horses are sold without having had
any real training (with a few exceptions), resulting in very reasonable sales prices when
compared to larger,more prominent breeding farms that are able to train, show and sell their
animals. If you think you can offer one of these animals a wonderful home, contact us as
we normally have something available for sale throughout the year.
