Evan is a 16 year-old Haflinger gelding who loves Peeps (those sugary marshmallow treats). He is curious, outgoing, and one of the first to say hello to visitors.
Princess is a 15 year-old paint pony mare who loves to roll in the mud. She also deals with allergies and has to be on two daily medications. This is why you’ll sometimes hear her cough and why she always loves to have her belly scratched.
Alex is 26 year old Thoroughbred gelding who once competed as a hunter/jumper and now prefers to take things slow and easy. He is steady and trustworthy.
Luna is an 11 year old Quarter horse mare who is the youngest member of the herd. She is happy to stand to be groomed or painted.
Her fancy Spanish name is Brasilena and we call her Brass. She is a 10-year-old PRE mare who is super sweet and loves treats.
Meet Callabonna Z! We call her Bonnie, and she is a sweet, 18-year-old Zangersheide mare with an international history.
What happens if you don’t choose the cat but the cat chooses you? You let him stay, of course. That’s what happened when Ojai showed up and claimed Bright Side as his home. He is happy to welcome everyone to the ranch and enjoys supervising all projects and people.
Much like the kingdom of Wakanda, we have our own guardian black panther who watches quietly over the Ranch. He is at times sociable and sweet and at other times a passing shadow. If you are graced by his presence during your time at Bright Side, you are blessed indeed.
