Standardbred Mare for Sale in Quakertown, PA
My childhood friend and I have grown up and flown the coop and have sadly left behind our best friends at the barn. They are L'amour & Crisko. We have been training them in the arena and on countless trail rides together since 2001, so they are a great pair for trail or arena riders of any level. L'amour is a standard bred mare, bay-colored with black socks. Her coat really glistens in the sun! I broke her from harness racing, and now she rides very nicely under saddle. 21 years old. This is what my friend had to say about Crisko: Crisko has been my friend and companion since 2001. I showed hunter/jumper on him through high school. He also has hundreds of hours out on the trail and is bomb-proof. I have his papers if interested. Since my husband got stationed in NM
... more», I haven't been able to give him the attention he deserves and I want to make sure he goes to a great home where he can be loved. He would be a perfect trail riding horse or beginner horse for someone who wants to learn how to ride. He loads on the trailer nicely, stands for the farrier and I even let him out around the barn to graze with no fencing. When I go down he comes when I call him (sweet feed also persuades him). Crisko's only issue has been his...well...back end. Since the beginning of his golden years, he has had, and this is the best way of describing it, juicy farts. We've tried altering his diet and supplements, but we haven't found a permanent solution. I have found that giving him hay stretcher does help a bit. This issue does not bother him in any way, but since he's grey it does look a little funny. That's it! The photo is of L'amour (& Crisko is in the background. Can send better photos upon request!)
About Quakertown, PA
Quakertown was originally settled by members of the Religious Society of Friends, or Quakers. The settlement was not officially known as Quakertown until its first post office opened in 1803. On September 18, 1777, during the American Revolutionary War, a convoy of wagons carrying the Liberty Bell from Philadelphia to Allentown, under the command of Col. Thomas Polk of Charlotte, North Carolina, stopped in Quakertown. The Liberty Bell was stored overnight behind the home of Evan Foulke (1237 West Broad Street), and the entourage stayed at the Red Lion Inn.
