Paint Mare for Sale in Hoopeston, IL
Babe's APHA registered name is Silvers Saucy Queen, and she thinks she is a queen. She was used for two years at Kickapoo State Park riding stable, and usually led the rides into the forest. She has a nice trot and canter, is an easy keeper, and does well with the farrier. She enjoys being petted and fed carrots and apples. Babe has not been ridden a lot lately, only because we haven't had the time or energy. We are letting our paints go because we can't give them as much attention as they deserve. We hate to let them go, but they are just too expensive to keep when we aren't riding them like we should. Contact us to arrange seeing her in person. Buyer responsible for transportation arrangements. You can see more photos on myspace. com under the name Susan Bane
About Hoopeston, IL
Hoopeston was laid out in 1871. It was named for Thomas Hoopes, one of the men who offered land for the crossing of two railroads: the Lafayette, Bloomington and Western Railroad and the Chicago, Danville and Vincennes Railroad. The two railroads separated the town into four sections. The latter railroad still exists and is now operated jointly by CSX Transportation and Union Pacific Railroad. In 1890, Greer College was established in Hoopeston, funded by a gift of $40,000 and 500 acres (2.0 km 2) of land from John Greer.
