Horse of the Month

January

Horse of the Month for January goes to Davis aka Dave! He is such a sweet boy who absolutely loves attention. He is an expert in giving hugs and loves to play with the other horses and with Hannah. Davis is one of the most well mannered horses that we have here at the Double R Ranch. Hannah has formed a very strong bond with Davis and enjoys being able to spend time with him each and every day. His personality is so incredible; he is truly one of the nicest horses we have ever come into contact with. We love being able to provide him with a home!

February

Horse of the Month for February goes to Cigar! He has come a long way since he joined us. Cigar has been fully accepted into the herd and has even become strong friends with Davis! Cigar is always playful and enjoys runing around in the pasture with the other horses. He is a very polite horse, and patiently waits for Hannah to take her out to pasture after each feeding. Hannah says, "It is great to watch a horse become so happy and at ease with his new home. I truly enjoy getting to spend time with Cigar every day."

​March

Horse of the Month for March goes to Sonny! He is always ready to play and loves being let out of his paddock so that he can run around with his friends, Tec and Rico. Sonny is notorious for resting his chin on Hannah's shoulder, which we all know is a horse hug! In return all he asks for is to be rubbed and scratched. He also loves to lick people's hands, which sounds a little gross but that is one way a horse shows you that they love you, so Hannah doesn't mind. He is such a fun horse to be able to take care of, and we here at the Double R Ranch are extremely lucky to have him!

​April

Horse of the Month for April goes to Fancy! This little girl is extremely spunky and loves running around her paddock with her brother Buddy. She has to be center of attention at all times, even though her brother tries to interfere with this quite often. Fancy gives the best horse kisses; she will put her nose right up to your mouth! She is a very happy girl all the time, and is not afraid to walk up to new people to get a rub down. Hannah was actually there when Fancy was born, so she is extremely grateful to be able to still be a part of her life. The Double R Ranch is lucky to have her! 

May

Horse of the Month for May goes to our Belgian Draft Indy! Do not let his size fool you, Indy is a huge teddy bear who loves attention! Indy is such a fun horse to have around, everyone that comes out loves to go over to see him. He is the boss of his paddock for sure, but he always invites his friends to come be with him. If you hear a thundering roar out in the pasture, it's Indy galloping around! He is playful, interested in everything you do, kind spirited, and just plain loveable! We feel very priviledged to be able to take care of him here at the Double R Ranch!

​June

Horse of the Month for June goes to Tec! Tec is a very calm, happy horse who never causes any fuss. He is not only gorgeous but his personality makes him even more special. Hannah loves walking into his paddock to go and be around him for awhile. He loves getting massaged, who doesn't though right?! He shares a paddock with his brothers Sonny and Rico, who all stick together and watch out for each other. One of his favorite things to do is to be let out of his paddock to run and play with his brothers. He is a very special horse and we are lucky to have him!

July

July's horse of the Month goes to Patriot! You can normally find him hanging out with Pal or Cigar, and he absolutely loves being out in the pasture to graze. His favorite thing for sure would be to receive his grain. He loves it so much, he always has to run a lap and kick up his feet before it is given to him, which provides some great entertainment during feeding time! He is a very well behaved horse, he is always happy and excited, and he always greets Hannah with love each morning. He is a cherished member of the Double R Ranch family and we are happy to have him! 

​August

Horse of the Month for September goes out to Flynn! This horse has come a long way since we got him back in April. He came to us very untrustworthy, flinchy, unsure, and hard to handle. Hannah has been working on training Flynn by working on trust, leadership, desensitizing and so on. Due to her efforts this horse has become totally different! He trusts more, he understands that he is not the leader, and he has become a willing horse. Hannah is excited about his progress and looks forward to watching the changes happen as he goes on through training. Flynn is a very loveable horse who loves being with his buddy Blackjack. 

​September

Horse of the Month for September goes out to Sassy! This little mare is absolutely adorable and is such a doll! She is so eager to please and loves to go on rides. Sassy has settled in quite nicely in her new paddock, which she gets to share with Lily and Wasson. The three of them have become the best of friends; it is not often that you find them not standing side by side. Ms. Sassy, as Hannah calls her, makes sure that she greets Hannah each morning when she goes out to feed, and even makes sure that all of the other horses know that she is there. She is probably the most talkative horse we have out here at the Double R Ranch! We really enjoy having her here with us. 

​October

Horse of the Month for October goes out to Cinnamon! This mare, and her owner, have come a long way since they arrived here at the Double R Ranch. Her owner, alongside Hannah and Sydney, have been working with her and her brother, Wildfire, on obedience and leadership, and due to that Cinnamon has become a more respectful horse for her owner! We are excited to watch the progress that will be made with this beauty. Cinnamon is an outgoing mare, she loves a good massage and adores her brother. In fact they are quite inseperable! We are happy to be able to take care of Cinnamon, and have really enjoyed developing a relationship with her owner as well. 

​November

Horse of the Month for November goes out to Wildfire! He is the lovely brother of Cinnamon, those two are inseperable! Wildfire is a sweet boy, he is also very curious about everything that goes on, especially when it comes to his sister! He has been working on leadership recently with his owner, Hannah and Sydney. There has been great improvement in the way he treats his owner! He has become less pushy and more respectful towards his owner, which has made her very happy! We have enjoyed getting to be a part of those moments and are looking forward to see what happens in the future with Wildfire here at the Double R Ranch!
