Available for Adoption!

Such sweet boys.

Companion Horses
Woody (the Dun) and Henry (Chestnut) are the most wonderful companions. We would love for them to be placed together, as Henry is really attached to Woody.
Woody is a 17 year old quarter horse.
Retired due to arthritis.
Easy keeper, lives out 24/7. Needs much more attention than his person can give him. He’s been passed around quite a bit before coming here and want to see him in a permanent home. He deserves it!

Woody likes grooming, food, taking naps in the sun and keeping Henry in line.

Henry is a 19 year old thoroughbred who never raced. He became a companion horse at the age of 2 and it’s the only job he’s ever had. He’s very friendly and loves attention. He waves his food bucket around if dinner is too late for his liking, and he is playful with Woody and other geldings. He does crib, wears a collar. Electric fence will stop him from doing it. He’s the low man in this pair and needs a confident companion.

Both horses are barefoot, come with adoption contract, farm visit, wellness checks and references required.

They can go together or separately, but they really are the sweetest pair.
If you can open your barn to these boys please DM or email amy@sumnerbrookfarm.com

Winter 2023 update!

Hello everyone!

What a strange and warm winter we’ve been experiencing in Connecticut. I’m not complaining about the warm temps, sunshine, no snow and neither are the horses! The horses are enjoying a beautiful February afternoon, dozing in the sun, munching on hay and are shedding those winter coats. The days are getting longer and we are counting the minutes until Spring when we can set some dates for tours, clinics and ground classes. We hope you are all well and able to get outside and enjoy your day! -Amy Gardner Anderson, Founder.

Vendor Fair 2022 Success!!!

What a great day!
Despite the monsoon weather conditions, we had a full house of vendors and shoppers for our 2nd annual Vendor Fair.

An incredible amount of work to organize and put on the event was accomplished by volunteers who started planning in July!
Corporate Sponsors Torrison Stone & Garden and Cahill Septic donated services and contributions to support the fair.
Melissa Hill Home Design put in a zillion volunteer hours organizing the event. Jill Bonaiuto Garrity was a tremendous help as always and everyone enjoyed the music of Tim Kosky.
The folks from @fallsbrookfarmct pitched in and braved the rain with their food truck.
Sumner Brook Family and Board members ran the raffle, handled the parking in pouring rain, and hung in there until the clean up was complete.
Many, many, many thanks to all of you!
See you in December 2023!
Amy Gardner Anderson
