Tom Pace, Megan Miller, and Madi Barker have written about us. Read about the adventures of Chester and Wendell at Horse Helpers in the new children’s book — Chester’s Barn: A Book about a Horse Rescue.
Artist Kathleen Kelley has graciously granted us permission to use her recent acrylic on canvas painting "Partners" for our latest t-shirt. This design is the perfect expression of the bond that is formed between one of our rescues and their new owner when they find their new home.
A concerned citizen brought Fiona to our attention and with the help of animal control we were able to acquire her. She had a foal by her side and was thin with numerous bleeding tumors around her teats, the largest about the size of a cantaloupe. Fiona Her owner told us she was regularly ridden and has a sweet temperament.
Grace is an off the track thoroughbred, although she was never raced. She is almost 8 years old and a beautiful dapple gray at about 16 hh. Grace was retrained as a lesson horse, she showed and jumped. So her skills are exceptional. And she is not your typical thoroughbred. She’s calm, friendly, and so far seems pretty unflappable. But Grace is still in rehabilitation and we are not sure how long that will actually be.
We were asked to take Cardi B because she had been living on her own with goats for about 10 years and her owner was aging and felt like Cardi wasn’t getting the attention she needed. She was right. Cardi B is a feisty little girl and its going to take some time to get her trusting people again.
We were asked to take Winnie because of her hooves; they were too long and as the owners understood it, they couldn’t be fixed. She loves to be loved. She’ll stand all day to let you rub her and pet her. Come meet Winnie, our sweet little pony.
Rocky is a Paso Fino surrendered to us by his owner in 2017. What seemed to be a pretty straightforward surrender of a healthy horse was actually more complicated. He looks great, but he just can’t carry a person's weight anymore and is looking for someone who needs a pasture buddy or a horse pet.
Rayn is a big question mark at the barn. She is a strawberry roan who is no longer skinny, the bites are healed and the rain rot gone. But we keep waiting for a huge growth spurt. Follow Rayn’s progress and when we have a better idea of what we are going to have with her, she will go up for adoption.
Pumpkin is a 16-month old Grayson Highland Pony who is ready for a home and someone who can bring him along to do the things they want. He is a friendly, flashy small pony suitable for riding with children or as a driving pony.
Athena is a pretty little chestnut filly with white points. She has loads of potential and a kind temperament and will make the perfect beginning lesson pony.
