Bodie (Update: Bodie has been adopted!)

Bodie (also known as Secret Black) is a grade paint gelding in his late teens who originally came to MHARF several years ago. He was adopted but was recently returned because his adopter could no longer keep him. Bodie is a nice gelding who is well broke to ride.

Kjor Sivert (update: Sivert has been adopted!)

Kjor Sivert is a 2003 Norwegian Fjord gelding who stands 14hh. He competed in our 2012 Trainer’s Challenge with Beth Ash, was adopted, but is now coming back to us because his adopter is moving and can’t take him along. Sivert is very well broke to ride and has extensive trail experience. he is suitable for an advanced beginner but he hasn’t been ridden in awhile so should have a a few rides from a more advanced rider as a refresher first. He is a very easy keeper and absolutely needs to be kept on a dry lot or needs to use his grazing muzzle if turned out on pasture.  He has had one minor bout of laminitis in the past (although he has recovered fully and radiographs show no sign of rotation) and will be prone to another if he is allowed unrestricted access to pasture. Sivert is a super nice horse and needs a home where he will get a lot of attention and regular exercise to keep him fit!

Laetisha


Laetisha is a 2001 bay tobiano half-Arabian mare who came to MHARF because her owner could no longer keep her. Laetisha is a sweet mare and is broke to ride.

Gretzki (Update: Gretzki has been adopted!)

Gretski is a 2009 mustang smokey black/ buckskin gelding who stands approximately 14.3 hh.  He originally came to MHARF in a humane case with his mother Ramona. He competed in our 2012  Trainer’s Challenge with trainer Chris Walz. He was adopted by Chris after the Challenge but sadly Chris can no longer keep him because of relocation. He was ridden consistently between 2012 and 2016 but has not been ridden for over a year now. He does have trail experience. Gretzki has never been ridden by anyone but Chris and right now he does require an experienced rider and really needs a person he can bond with.  Chris says he is very smart. Gretski is an “easy keeper” and tends to be on the heavy side–so ideally he should be on a dry lot or restricted diet unless he is getting worked regularly. He has had some issues with heaves in the past and has been on the supplement Lung EQ and that seemed to work well for him. He has also had abscesses in both front feet but has not had an issue with that for over a year.

Full of Spice (Spice has been adopted!)

Full of Spice is a 2001 15hh chestnut American Saddlebred mare who originally came to MHARF during a 2011 Pine County humane case. Spice was pregnant at intake and gave birth to her colt Spot in October of 2011. After he was weaned in 2012, Spice competed in the 2012 MHARF Trainer’s Challenge of the Unwanted Horse with trainer George Walker and she is broke to ride.  She was adopted a few years later but is now being returned because her adopter can sadly no longer keep her. Spice did spend 90 days of refresher training at Dart Ranch during the summer of 2017.  Her previous adopter says she is very smart and can be a bit lazy and resistant to move out. She feels Spice gets really bored with arena work and would do great on trails or obstacle work (but she does not have experience with these at this point). She is not spooky or reactive but is not suitable for a beginner because she is super smart and will take advantage.  She has great ground manners and is easy to catch.
