Old Cowboy Ranch

Late in November of 2012, Johni spotted Mardi Gras on a hill and it was love at first site. She selected him out of over 100 horses and sadly many of those horses have since been shipped to Alberta to be slaughtered for meat.

Mardi was instantly named by Johni due to the fact that she likened his face and coloring to that of a Mardi Gras mask.

As Scott examined him the first time it was clear that Mardi has a lovely temperament but that he was very thin and as a result very weak.

BEFORE Mardi came “home”




It turns out that Mardi is a three year old thoroughbred and we’re sure that you’ll agree that his markings are gorgeous and that even though he is still very thin, with a lot of well deserved tender loving care he’s going to be a real looker.  Oh, and he likes to snuggle!


Home sweet home and the TLC begins
