OUR RESIDENTS

Friends we've made here at Bronken Creek

Our Current Residents

CAMBRIDGE

1990 Hanoverian Gelding

Cambridge competed as a hunter jumper in Massachusets before his retirement. He is originally from Germany, and spent some time in the Midwest as a youngster. Cambridge is a big guy - he is handsome and sweet and accomodates the shorter humans that he encounters :) We have discovered his itchy spots and make sure he has plenty of shavings for his roll every evening when he comes back into his stall.

NICHOLS WORTH (NICKY)

1990 Throughbred Gelding

Nicky came to us from Minnesota, where his owner met him and promoted him to a much improved life. Nicky is a great guy - greeting us politely (but not quietly!) for his meals and generally enjoying life.

BENJAMIN MOORE

1991 Dutch Warmblood Gelding

Benjamin spent his early career in the jumper ring in Mexico and when his current owner purchased him in Texas and changed his name he competed in the level 3's and 4's, taking very good care of her and jumping anything that was in front of him. His heart is as big as he is but he ironically can be afraid of his own shadow which can cause him to jump into your pocket. He still doesn't know he won't fit. Benjamin came to us from Illinois.

FINAL GOLD (ANDY)

1991 Thoroughbred Gelding

Andy was a successful hunter jumper in Massachusets in his younger days. He still shows the style and movement he had in the show ring - with the added benefit of loving to roll where he will get the most dirt coverage now that he is retired! Andy has perfect manners and loves being groomed, turnout time and eating.

BEAR PAW CONFETTI (BEAR PAW)

1995 Appaloosa Gelding

Bear Paw has a huge presence, which is backed by him being a super-sweet and well-mannered guy. We enjoy having him on our farm!

RAMAZOTTI

1995 Hanoverian Gelding

Ramazotti joined us from Massachusets, introducing himselfl as he walked off the trailer and fitting in instantly. He is handsome, affectionate and quite the talker!

ALPHRETTA (AL)

1996 Dutch Warmblood Gelding

Al is the guy everyone greets first! He has been calm and cool from the time he stepped off the trailer, going so far as falling asleep in cross-ties :) There is nothing not to love about Al.

CHIPS'S ZANE GREY (CHIPS)

1996 Missouri Fox Trotter Gelding

Chips is a polite and handsome guy. He's well mannered and has given a lot of joy to his owners and others who have known him. Chips deserves a relaxing retirement.

SUNNY

1998 Paint Gelding

Sunny not only turns heads with his good looks (I dont think I need to say more than 'Bay Medicine Hat Paint'...); he is also affectionate and has wonderful manners. We look forward to many years with Sunny!

MUSTY

1999 Mustang Gelding

Musty is a very handsome guy and struts his stuff for all his neighbors. He has lived in a herd and plays well with others. He's a great guy!

DEIGHTON JODIE (JODIE)

1999 Shire Mare

Jodie is one of Chris and Nan's Shire mares, retired from being a broodmare ... maintaining her status as beloved pasture pet. She's originally from England and has lived in Wisconsin since 2005. She's a great lady with just the right amount of attitude.

NEIKO

2000 Thoroughbred Gelding

Neiko stepped off the trailer the perfect gentleman, and has continued to set the bar high. He is handsome and friendly and well-mannered. We are lucky to have Neiko living with us!

FINE STYLE (FINEY)

2001 Oldenburg Gelding

We knew Finey as a foal, his Owner is a wonderful friend of ours! He has grown into a handsome, BIG guy with a loving personality and showstopping trot. He is loving retirement.

BATMAN

2001 Tennessee Walker Gelding

Batman is a handsome and smart guy who enjoyed the trails with his owner for several years. We look forward to many years with him!

KAHLIA

2004 Thoroughbred Mare

We are so happy to have another mare in the herd! Kahlia is super-sweet, intelligent and full of expression. She's settling in wonderfully :)

OOFTA

Oofta is a great, Midwestern guy! He's sensible and quiet and easy to work with -- but he's also easy on the eyes!

2008 Morgan Mare

Hush is a smart, beautiful and fancy mare! She loves to show off and is your best friend if you talk 'horse':)

BRANDO

Brando is handsome, smart and sensible. He is a pleasure to work with - we are very lucky to have him at our facility. He even poses for photos! :)

Former Friends

FRANKENPHON (FRANK)

1978-2012 Arabian Gelding

Frank had done everything. He hadn't lost much of his spunk either. He frequently galloped up for his breakfast and caused a big ruckus when things didn't go his way.

FOX CREEK DONELLA (DONNY)

1986-2015 Morgan Mare

Donny was a very accomplished Driving mare - both in the show ring and out having fun for 2 generations of owners in MinneSota! She pistoned out a ground-covering and showy trot daily in her retirement and drew all the eyes to her. We loved her personality - she had many facial expressions, was a great problem-solver and we trusted her unconditionally. She was a lovely mare and we were lucky to have her here.

SCOOTER

1988 Morgan Gelding

Scooter is a handsome and intelligent guy who seems half his age! We were happy to have Scooter relaxing and enjoying life at our facility!

KAYCIE'S KENTUCKY GENTLEMAN (CASEY)

1989-2016 Missouri Fox Trotter Gelding

Casey was right there saying hello when we walked in the barn. He came to us to retire together with his buddy Chips! We are happy knowing we provided him a great retirement with a great companion, caring attention and lots of food!

COOPER

1989-2017 Quarter Horse Gelding

Cooper was smart and sensible with perfect manners. He was happy just relaxing at pasture :)

LEO

1990 Trakehner Gelding

Leo holds a special spot in our hearts. He was Marci's pasturemate and our first boarded retiree. Leo (or 'Nudge', as we often called him - for reasons you can deduce) was an upper level dressage horse in his day and it was obvious from the moment you first saw him. He was polite and you could not ignore his presence - what a personality! Leo left us to be near his 'Mom' when she moved elsewhere in Wisconsin - always a happy reason for leaving!

JANE DOE (MARCI)

1990-2011 Thoroughbred Mare

She was trained and shown successfully through second level dressage, schooling third. She was one of the sweetest horses you will ever meet - kind and caring to humans and other horses. She's our 'Princess Marcella'. Marci moved when Nan moved - from Minnesota to New York to Michigan and finally to Wisconsin.

WILLIAM

1990-2017 Westphalian Gelding

William still looked like a teenager, which is a compliment to the great care his owner has provided him through the years. He earned that top-level care, being a very accomplished jumper and a super-cool horse to boot.

SKJONNHET & SYLVIA

1992 & 1997 Norwegian Fjord Mares

Nan's 'Pasture Ornament' companions.

SWEET GEORGIA BROWN (GEORGIA)

1992 Standardbred Mare

Georgia is a delicate girl with a sweet disposition and excellent manners. She and her Mom have a wonderful bond, which is great to see. Georgia had a life in harness racing, then polo before getting her lucky break meeting her current owner. Miss Georgia lived with us for several months while her owner moved to a new area and found a perfect place for Georgia to live in Indiana. We look forward to updates on how they are doing in their new home.

HIDDEN TREASURE (HOMER)

1992-2018 Thoroughbred Gelding

Homer was super SWEET and super SMART! He instantly became Andy's best friend and was a wonderful horse to be around. He will be missed.

FOLLOW ME FRED (FRED)

1993 Dutch Warmblood Gelding

Fred is a charmer. He's easy to work with, friendly and has alot of personality! He is now living closer to his owner - always a good thing :)

NOW OR NEVER (OLIVER)

1994-2020 Dutch Warmblood Gelding

Oliver was a handsome and intelligent guy. He was a very successful hunter jumper in Illinois in his prime. Oliver enjoys the comforts of retired life - his current favorites were rolling, grazing, weekly grooming (don't forget extra time rubbing his forehead) and apple slices. He was one we counted on for not just a greeting, but a conversation as we bring hay out.

DONOVAN

1997 Hanoverian Gelding

Donovan is a big, handsome, well-mannered guy who exudes sweetness :) He's wonderful to be around and we were happy to know him! Donovan moved to be very close to his Mom.

TUCSON

1999 Appaloosa Gelding

Tucson is a big, easy-going, good looking guy. He has wonderful manners and a "been there, done that" attitude. He left to be closer to his Mom :)

IDA and QIWI

2004 & 1989 Swedish Warmblood Mares

Qiwi and Ida (Grandmother & Granddaughter) are fellow Wisconsin horses who lived with us temporarily. They are beautiful, healthy, wonderfully trained mares with personalities plus! We loved having them with us.

PABELLINA (PABBY)

2005 Oldenburg Mare

We cared for Pabby in her mid-late pregnancy. She is a stunning mare, bred to an amazing stallion - and she produced a healthy and beautiful filly!

RUBY

2011 Percheron Mare

Ruby lived with us temporarily between her previous and new homes in Wisconsin. She is a young, sweet, pretty draft girl who is very inquisitive and, of course, loves any food she is offered.

KOBY

Andalusian X Gelding

What an exceptional guy! He is extremely personable, easy-going, smart and healthy. We are honored to care for Koby!
