Adoption Corner!


Introducing Gandalf & Dove! 


Gandalf is a gorgeous Albino teenaged stallion who is seeking a knowledgable home as a pet. Very well mannered, though not handled for many years. About 8h. Easy keeper. First farrier trim in many years went well (with my VERY competent farrier, Rich Klauber) No signs of laminitis. Healthy boy. Dental visit shortly and then eye exam but overall, he's in good shape. Minis live quite a long time so be ready to commit the next couple decades! Must be corraled alone but is fine alongside others. No breeding. Email if interested in this wonderful little horse! - Located in Southampton, NY. 



Dove- Domestic Shorthair Female/Spayed 2 year old Blue, she is affectionate and sweet, good with cats and children. Come visit Dove at the Smithtown Animal Shelter.
