TJ & Tessa

TJ is not for sale.

Five Hills Tornado Joe, aka TJ, is out of Gunner's Fancy Yankee and by our first jack, Five Hills Tank.  He was Tank's last foal before he died and very special to us.  TJ is not for sale and will be Chester's mule. 

TJ continues to recover after a month with a trainer to get him started.  Tessa was not as lucky and we will never forget her valiant effort to survive whatever it was they did to her.  I am greatful that TJ was spared what she could not survive.  We are working steadily toward our goal of riding in 2010.  TJ still has some issues that we may never understand but he is slowly returning to his loving, trusting self.

What a hunk!

Five Hills Champagne Tessa was my Amber Champagne molly.  See Callie's page for a little more history and photo's.  Tessa's sire was  Tank.  Tessa was foaled in 2005 and was sent for training in 2008 to ride and was returned to us after a month of "training" in such horrible condition that she had to be euthanized  after 3 weeks of struggling to keep her alive/

May you Rest in Peace Dear Tessa

We don't consider our mules, horses and ponies a business, it's all pleasure.
