Hay there! I'm the veteran of the Courage Ranch herd and have lived at my home in Floresville for 11 years. I love to run and I love kids! My best friend is Major, an orange tabby cat that lives in my barn.
Hi there! My name is Little Lady, but my friends call me Little Black (LB). As my name suggests, I am little and very kind. I am about 4 years old and have great manners. Much better than some of my herd mates! I love being a therapy partner at Courage Ranch.
I'm a sassy appaloosa mare who loves working with adults. I love to eat and I know how to make sure I get my hay! I was rescued from a difficult situation years ago and I'm so happy to have a loving home at Courage Ranch. Come see me soon!
Howdy! My name is Jack. Sometimes I find it difficult to trust people but when I do we definitely become friends. I really trust my herd-mates and am very protective of them. I don't always move very fast but I am always on the look out for danger, especially from coyotes or stray dogs. I am best known for my donkey brae, especially when it's dinner time!
Howdy! I'm Easton. I came to Courage Ranch from Happened By Chance Horses in New Braunfels. I'm the only guy in the herd except for Jack! I'm super quiet and sweet and always the perfect gentleman. I'm excited to be able to help others.
