Abernathy Farm




(Shine) was a surprise colt, born on April 7th, 2015. His mother was bred before coming to Abernathy Farm and she hid her pregnancy the entire time. She was even placing at a show 3 days before he was born! No worries though, he is happy and healthy. He is growing like a weed and started stealing his momma's feed at 2 months old. He is very friendly and doesn't seem scared of anything. He was halter broke at 1 week old, broke to tie at 3 months old, and was trailer loading by himself at 4 months old. He is pictured at only 9 months old and already almost 13 hh. We can't wait to continue his training to eventually be a lesson horse at Abernathy Farm.

is the newest puppy on Abernathy Farm. She was the runt of a litter of 12. She was born in March of 2011. She is a tough little pup and you would never know she almost didn't make it (twice). Now she is the heaviest dog here and she loves to play with everyone! She also helps me lead the horses around! She will show off her tricks for a doggie treat or even a horse treat. She knows how to sit, lay down, paw, roll over, and army crawl.


Black and Jack

Black and Jack adopted me in the spring of 2007. Ricky actually found them and figured he could lick them clean much better than they could on their own. That's how I found them, hiding from Ricky's giant nose in the rafters of the wood barn. They have been on mouse patrol ever since.






is a black Lab and Shar Pei mix. She was adopted from Charlotte Mecklenburg Animal Control in Feb 2010. She is timid at first but, she warms up quickly. She loves to be petted and will sit down in front of you, if you don't pet her she will tap you on the leg with her paw to say "Hey, pet me!"
