Barn Nanny, LLC

First off, I want to thank you for taking the time to visit my site.


I have been around horses since I was very young and have ridden for most of my life.  I took a break due to a divorce, but easily slid back into the saddle after we purchased our farm in Lebanon, Maine.  I own three wonderful horses (see below for their individual stories), 2 cats and 2 dogs that I have rescued. 


I created Barn Nanny because as a horse owner with a small farm, I have experienced the need to have a back up.  ​Also, have had friends ask for help if they were going away for the weekend or a show was running late.


It created a moment of pause for me and figured that if I was experiencing these circumstances, I am sure other back yard owners are also.


Please let me know if you have any questions.


Thank you and Happy Riding!

Just a bit about my hooved Fur Babies

Angel is our 14 yr old Morab mare that was a barrel racer in her past life before I purchased her May 2014.  She's a very sweet, intelligent girl that keeps me on my toes!  She has settled in quite nicely & I provide basic care & riding lessons with her.


We realized quickly that she wasn't terribly happy being by herself and I brought Beau home.


Beau is a 16 hand, 14 yr old Percheron gelding that I purchased sight unseen off a Facebook rescue page.  This poor boy was put through 2 slaughter auctions and had a fast approaching timeline to go back to the slaughter lot.  His photo captured my heart and although it has been a challenging road with health and lameness issues, I wouldn't change a thing.  This boy is my jokester, is amazingly smart, sensitive and now that we have work through his trust issues, he is very sweet & loving. 


On October 2016 Samson (18 hand 10 yr old Percheron gelding) stole my heart when I was at an auction to pick up another horse that ended up being terribly lame.  I had to choose another horse or forfeit the money that I paid. One look at Samson and I was hooked!  He was an owner surrender that arrived to the auction the day prior and was scheduled to be auctioned mid week.  There was no way I was going to let him experience that!  He barely fit in the horse trailer and made the 8 hr trip home with no issues.  He is a gentle giant with a mind of his own.  We are still getting to know each other and build the trust/bond.  But I look forward to the lessons that this boy has in store for me!


I have learned so much from this pair!  It's been quite a journey!
