Pinestar is a bay Morgan who never acts his age, he was born in 1997. Before he came to Hope Ranch, he was kept in a small stable and was almost never ridden. As a result of all his pent up energy, there was a riding accident with his owner that left her with a broken hip and a horse she needed to move. His owner was referred to Terri which resulted in him having a new home at Hope Ranch Ministries. Years later, his owner was no longer able to afford to pay his rent and started looking for potential buyers. He is now owned by the volunteer, Kailyn, who has been riding him for years. He's a great horse for beginners and is always getting into mischief, but is sweet to all he meets.

She is a Quarter horse. Based upon our best guess, she was born in 2006.
