“Sheldon” is unraced and arrived at CRR June 1, 2020. He arrived as a stallion, but it was in his best interest to geld this sensitive fellow. Since then he has been enjoying being Uncle Sheldon to weanlings and looks forward to that being his new career.
2011 Dark Bay Mare
(Flatter x Inuendo by Procida)
“Alice” retired after 30 starts with $45,840 in earnings. Golden Creek Equine claimed her from Fonner Park before she arrived in Wyoming. Alice is one of a few true “rescues” we have done. Though she has a troubled past and had to overcome many mental obstacles, she is now the sweetest, most loving mare. She loves spending her time running across the prairie.
2018 Bay Filly
(Curlin x Preseli (IRE) by Caerleon)
“Tina” is unraced due to a genetic disorder, Turner’s Syndrome, which means that she is missing a female chromosome. Therefore, externally, she looks female but internally does not have functioning sex organs. Because of Tina’s condition her growth plates closed prematurely, and she will always be the height of a typical yearling. Tina’s breeder/owner wanted her to live the best life possible and sent her to CRR. She has loads of personality and enjoys being a pocket pony. She enjoys spending time and getting into trouble with her partner in crime, Ten Eighty.

Preseli is all class, and is enjoying being retired from motherhood and spends her days eating and getting pets with fellow herd mates.
