Intelligent, gentle, a real gentleman, Lombard was abandoned by his owner at the boarding stables...SERRA was contacted by Tiana Wells, manager of Lis Robyn Farm (boarding stable) in Sonoma. A boarder and owner of the Thoroughbred named Lombard Street had abandoned her horse at the facility. The horse's owner had traded work at Lis Robyn Farms for board for her horse's stall and turnout.
Apparently, the deal was that the owner could have a stall for work at the ranch. She still had to pay for her own hay and supplements. The deal was not kept by the owner. Because she did not feed him properly for so long, the horse was Henneke 3. So, the horse owner signed Lombard over—the TB registration papers and a separate hand written note giving ownership to Tiana and the owner of Lis Robyn Farms. Tiana stepped up and was generously feeding and caring for the horse to help his weight gain.
Tiana and her student Delia delivered the lovely bay TB to our ranch. As it turns out, Delia had leased Lombard for a few years and loved riding him. She told us that this horse was a good schoolmaster for her and she wanted to be certain that he landed safely. (Delia would have adopted him had she not already been working 3 jobs to pay for her present horse...now that's a responsible young horsewoman).
Lombard is not a fractious or abused horse at all. He is Easy to trailer load, blanket, lift up his feet and general good manners. Very kind. Easy going and goes with the flow. He settled in right away to SERRA's manor stall/paddocks. His dental was done by Dr. Peter Ahern along with his vaccinations before he came to us. Tiana made sure that Lombard was hoof trimmed also before delivery. She's a true horsewoman.
And while going through Lombard's abandoned tack tote, volunteer Cyndie discovered photos of Lombard from 2004 being played with by Linda Parelli at the Reno Parelli Tour Event!! Lo and behold! He knows 'Parelli games' too!!
Lombard has been extensively trail ridden, he’s a charmer in the barn and loves people and attention. Easy to be around, respectful manners and playful. Loves his toys! Goofball...
